New In: Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint

Summer is a tricky one when it comes to foundation, you want something that's light but at the same time, isn't going to slide off your face at the first sign of sweat. I have normal to oily skin so tend to sway towards more matte finishes, cue the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint Foundation. I've wanted this foundation since it was first released, the whole concept of it being light but still matte really appealed to me.

So first impressions; the bottle or packaging was a lot bigger than I thought it would be, which is a good thing. The texture is kind of powdery and sets to more of a powder/ matte finish. It's quite thick but easy to blend into the skin. I tend to start off by applying it with my fingers and then I go in with a brush just to make sure everything's even. I was matched to the colour Finland which is near enough perfect. I would say it has a medium coverage but is still buildable. I definitely wouldn't suggest this for people with dry skin as it does seem to cling to any kind of dry areas you have. Also sometimes if I want it to have a little bit of a fresher, dewy finish I mix a bit of my Becca Back Light Priming filter, and that just adds a bit of glow.

This is probably my new favourite foundation, for summer anyway. You can hardly feel it on your skin, it has a skin-like/ natural finish and contains SPF 30 which will protect your skin from damage (it also smells so good!).

  1. This sounds lovely, I managed to get my hands on a sample but it wasn't the right shade so I couldn't really get a feel for it! I have oily skin so it sounds as though it would be pretty perfect for me :) xx
