Velvet Matte Skin Tint ($44; narscosmetics.com) is NARS’ newest launch this Spring. It comes in 12 shades with an SPF of 30 and leaves a soft, satin matte finish with medium coverage. Its the perfect lightweight coverage for Spring and Summer. I wear St. Moritz in the regular Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, and wear the same in Velvet Matte too. Its the perfect color match for me. The coverage is medium, yet buildable, needing a concealer for problem spots. The formula feels like a cream to powder, yet quite balancing without being too matte and blends in seamlessly. If you have very dry skin though, a good moisturizer underneath helps with better application. I din’t really need to powder over, but I just used a tad to set everything in place. Compared to Pure Radiant, I find this a little more long wearing and a tad more lightweight, though it is a little less dewy looking. Overall, its fantastic, just the right amount of coverage for a very natural look without the heavy feel.
