Comments about NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

I like to write reviews since I myself read them and are helpful. I received a tester and tried I in a few days. My color was the St Motriz although initially I thought it was too dark. I think I may have to give up on matte creams, but this one has been the best I have tried. It did not sink into my lines as much as previous ones and kept me oil free. I'm 43 and my skin is very textured with large pores so and i didnt get a natural look so just no for me skin type. IT cc cream still is the one although I wished it had a bit more coverage and didn't transfer as much

      I got a sample of this with my last order and wow what a great product. Even the color of the sample was a little too dark it went on like a dream and blended beautifully. It is a little drying for my 54 year old skin but I wish a product like this was available back when I was in my teens and 20's.

      Comments about NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

      Love the velvet finish. The coverage is light to medium, it won't erase every skin imperfection but it evens out my skin tone without settling into lines or looking cakey and still looks fresh & not greasy even after 8+ hours. My only complaint is that it only comes in 12 shades -- I have light olive skin and the "light 1" shade is too pale and the "light 2" is a little bit orange on me.

        Someone recommended this brand to me for my oily t-zone and combination skin. I like that there are several shades to choose from, and St. Mortiz is a much better match than other "medium" shades from other brands. It goes on smoothly and lasts for a good part of the day; after 6 or 8 hours, my face needs touching-up and blotting. Overall great product.

          It's medium coverage, and as the name says, it has a velvet matte finish. Whenever I wear glasses, some of the product on the bridge of my nose transfers to my glasses and that looks a little weird (even though I set the product), but other than that, I love it.

              Hi there! I would check out Annapurna or Cuzco for your Velvet Matte Skin Tint shade. Cuzco is a bit lighter and Annapurna is a bit darker but based on skintone and undertone one of those should be the perfect fit.

              I would check out the shade St. Mortiz in Velvet Matte Skin Tint. This formula works best for normal, combination, or oily skin. If you have very dry skin I would suggest trying our Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in St. Moritz as well. This is a lightweight tinted moisturizer that keeps skin hydrated and improves its overall condition.

            Hello! My shade in the NARS tinted moisturizer is Annapurna, would I use the same color for the velvet matte skin tint as well?

              A:

              Hi there. I would definitely go for Annapurna in the Velvet Matte Formula as well if that's your shade in our Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. As the formula is different there could be a slight shade variance but most likely it will be a great match as well.

            Is this product good for dry, very fair, sensitive skin?

              A:

              Our Velvet Matte Skin Tint works best for normal, combination or oily skin. The best formula for a dry, fair, sensitive skin would be our Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. This product is hydrating, has a broad spectrum SPF 30, and helps to improve skin's overall condition. It comes in the same 12 shade lineup as our Velvet Matte Skin Tint.

              If you are Barcelona in Sheer Glow, I would start with Cuba in our Velvet Matte Skin Tint. If this is too dark go to Annapurna, if its too light go to Malaga.
