There aren’t many things I’ll cop to being an expert on, but because I’ve taken just about every tinted moisturizer, BB cream, and “complexion corrector” on the market for a whirl, I feel pretty confident in my knowledge of light-coverage base products. I know what’s good, I know what’s just alright, and I know what’s technically great but just doesn’t work for me.
Sadly, has always fallen into the latter category. The cult favorite gives seamless lightweight coverage, comes in a solid range of colors, offers sun protection, and makes skin glow—but it skews just a bittooradiant for my oily complexion, so it’s not ideal for me. NARS’s soon-to-be-released Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30, on the other hand? We have a winner.
Silky smooth to the touch and surprisingly generous with the coverage, this “skin tint” is, indeed, just the type of velvety matte that NARS does so well. It has excellent shine control and oil-absorbing properties, but it doesn’t leave skin looking chalky or flat—rather, the finish is soft-focus, blurring imperfections and evening out the rest, including dark spots, undereye circles, blemishes, and enlarged pores. If you’re shiny-faced by nature, you’re going tolovethis stuff, but it’s just as suitable for dry and normal skin types that don’t need much on the oil-control front. Read: It doesn’t emphasize flakiness or unsightly dry spots.
Points for the “expertly refined” shade range, too—I can’t speak firsthand to the darker end of the spectrum (though it does seem pretty comprehensive), but the fairest shade, Terre Neuve, has my paper-white, neutral-toned complexioncovered. No concealer necessary—I just layer the buildable tint where needed, add brows and a light dusting of Hourglass Ambient Powder in Dim Light, and I’m left with soft, natural-looking, John William Waterhouse-worthy skin that’s also sufficiently protected from sun exposure.
