NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint - $54 - in 12 shades: Terre-Neuve - Light 0; Finland - Light 1; Alaska - Light 2; Groenland - Light 3; St. Moritz - Medium 1; Cuzco - Medium 1.5; Annapurna - Medium 2; Cuba - Medium 3; Malaga - Medium-Dark 1; Seychelles - Medium-Dark 2; Martinique - Medium-Dark 3; Polynesia - Dark 1 - that effortlessly perfects the look of skin and creates a soft, natural matte finish. 

With an oil-free formula that wears comfortably, maintaining the skin's natural moisture barrier while it controls shine throughout the day. It transforms the look of skin immediately and over time with transparent blurring powder that instantly enhances the look of skin by helping to blur imperfections; rose fruit extract to visibly minimize the appearance of pores and control shine; and vitamins C & E to protect against harmful free radical damage.

They fooled me by calling it a tint, I was expecting it to be your everyday, ho-hum tinted moisturizer but it's so much more - what they really need to call it is a magical blessing in a tube for anyone with combination/oily skin - not only does it even out skin and make everything look smooth and pretty but it does an amazing job of keeping down the shine! Not to say that any skin type can't use it but non-shiny skin won't fully appreciate everything this tint can do for you!

Available now at Hudson's Bay, Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, Murale, Sephora, sephora.ca and narscosmetics.com.

  1. This product looks great, but I wish we had the SPF version in Canada.

    1. I notice companies often drop the SPF for Canadian versions of their product - I'm guessing it's more difficult to get approval for it from Health Canada with sunscreen in it so easier to go without!

  2. Unfortunately I found that it really settled in my pores. Not attractive!
