NARS Seychelles Velvet Matte Skin Tint
Introducing Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30 Instant gratification. Effortless application. Protects and perfects with a soft-matte finish. Oil-free. All-day wear.
Velvet Matte Skin Tint creates naturally looking coverage for all skin tones. My skin looked smooth and alive, no dullness or graying like some matte foundations can appear. The coverage added a slight glow to my skin but decreased a shine.
Wearing NARS Malaga and Seychelles Velvet Matte Skin Tint
I applied Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint with a duo fiber brush with a pressing motion because I prefer more over an opaque coverage. It blended well leaving my skin looking refreshed and smooth, but matte.

Product | This oil-free formula wears comfortably, maintaining skin’s natural moisture barrier while working to control shine throughout the day. Transparent Blurring Powders help to blur imperfections, even the look of skintone, and smooth the appearance of pores and fine lines. The powders’ unique, spherical shape compresses like a cushion, delivering a velvety-smooth, touchable feel and superior comfort on application. Vitamins C, E, and broad spectrum SPF 30 protect against free-radical damage caused by environmental stress. Simply touch and go for an effortlessly perfected look. – NARS press release
Pigmentation | I am in love with this matte coverage. The pigmentation is smooth and spreads nicely on the skin. I suggest using a duo fiber brush or a flat brush to get the most out of this foundation coverage.
Application | The Velvet Matte Skin Tint comes out of a small hole in the tube and can be a little stiff at first depending on how you have your foundation stored. I suggest applying it to the back of you hand to warm up the product or apply directly to your face and press into the skin. The skin tint is easy to mover around the skin but the more you blend the less opaque the coverage.
Texture | Velvet Matte Skin Tint has a creamy almost liquid texture. It is not too thick to move around the face and gives great full to medium coverage if it is pushed into the skin. I didn’t use a powder to set because I wanted to see how matte the coverage would be without it and it was quite smooth. I would say, if you are very oily I would use a light powder to keep it from sliding all over your face.
Longevity | Without powder this product lasted about 6 hours before I felt like I needed a refresh or touch up. I have dry skin so it lasted longer on me than someone that has oily or combination skin.

Overall | Velvet Matte Skin Tint would be great for teens during prom. It’s also a great product for everyday wear and summer time. It’s great for people with oily skin because it’s a drier oil free product. I was surprised how matte this product makes the skin look. It’s matte but doesn’t look dry. It gives soft coverage medium coverage but I had to blend two different shades to match my skin tone. The colors blended seamlessly so I was happy with it.
