Spring is coming and so is pool season. Are you ready to show off some skin?!

Not everyone is comfortable going outdoors without makeup on. If you are like me, you can’t leave the house without a little something. On my days off, I usually wear something sheer like a mineral powder or tinted moisturizer. Last month, I discovered my new favorite product to achieve this look: NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint.

I sampled this product the first day it launched in February of last month. Shortly after, I caved and purchased it for myself. FYI, it takes a lot for me to buy foundation at full price, but it happened. It’s THAT good!

Here are a few things you should know about it…


-Cushiony, velvety feel

-Medium, buildable coverage

What it does:

-Velvet Illusion Complex transforms the skin overtime and immediately

-Blurs imperfections

-Evens skin tone

-Smoothes pores and fine lines

Key Ingredients:

-Velvet Illusion Complex

-Vitamins C & E to protect against free radicals

This formula is available in 12 shades, it’s oil free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, and dermatologist-tested.

I will be the first person to admit that on a daily basis, I’m a “full coverage” gal. I love when my skin looks flawless. (What woman doesn’t?) So when my good friend and NARS Business Manager, Alexa, told me this was launching I was a little skeptical.

Would it be enough coverage to wear on its own?

Will there be a color to match my skin tone?

Will it still be on my face at the end of the day?

All of my questions were thrown out the window after I tried this product for myself. For it being described as a tint, this product has incredible coverage. You can sheer it out if you want but it also has the ability to please a full coverage gal like myself. The finish is amazing as well. It’s a liquid but almost has a gel like feel to it. When buffing this product out, it has a velvety look to it. It stays on all day. The best part: you still look like you, only better.

To experience this innovative new product, come see me at Nordstrom at the Fashion Show Mall.
