Beauty Find - NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick


NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick Trinidad 

Last year, I shared with you one of my all time favorite foundation/tinted moisturizers the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30.  If you have oily/combination skin and want a fully portable version of that, then the new NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick is once again, perfection from NARS.

NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick  takes the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint one step further with a creamy, buildable finish that can go from sheer to medium/full.  It controls oil, has a built in brush on the other side of the dual stick - and all-day coverage.



My shade is Trinidad  which worked well with my skin tone (the shades have different names from the ones in the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint  line) .  I liked using both my fingers, as well as the blending sponge to apply NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick (this end is removable as well).  The foundation  felt completely weightless, and was also good for light concealer-like touch ups and coverage.  During the day, it didn't rub off, and the color stayed true.



Like the  NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint, the NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick finish is matte, but not flat or dull looking.  My t zone was never oily, but my drier areas never looked dry or flaky.  The stick glided easily across my skin, so it was easy to get every day coverage with just 3-4 swipes and a quick blend.  I love this for travel and to apply post gym/spa.

The NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick formula has lots of pigment, so though the bullet is not very large, the stick will last a long time, even with daily usage.  If you need a matte foundation or you're a makeup artist looking to expand your kit for oily clients, NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick is a MUST have product - RLB
