NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30

Oily skinned and matte loving ladies, rejoice.  NARS new Matte Velvet Skin Tint is here to perfect your complexion.

It's no secret I'm a matte foundation fan. And in the category of tinted moisturizers, BBs  and such matte is a rarity. NARS has given us a great option. Not surprising as their Pure Radiant TM is pretty awesome too, but I can only wear it when winter is at it's worst and my skin gets a bit drier.

While this is called a "tint" it has great medium coverage. Far more than I expected and it easily works on it's own as a foundation. You might need a little concealer on spots or under the eyes  but that's it. It does  a good job of holding oil back and has a soft feel and look on the skin . While there is no shine or shimmer in any way you still have a bit of a glow. It's also very long wear.

This is fairly dry however. It's not drying  nor does it look chalky or heavy but has a light powder soft finish. It's truly matte not dewy matte and that's fine by me. If you have drier skin, this will not be for you.

According to NARS it has an "innovative velvet illusion complex technology that creates a soft focus effect with soft touch feel. Transparent blurring powders  help instantly enhance the look of skin by blur imperfection and even tone. "

I have the two lightest shades,Terre -Neuve and Finland. Finland is Light 1 and I probably could have gone even one darker. So if you are very pale, you'll find a shade here.  There are 12 shades in all up to Dark 1 which is warm chocolate.

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint is available on Jan. 15 at NARS and Feb. 1 at Sephora and department stores and is $ 44.
