And just like that, we are heading straight for new spring makeup!

Introducing Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30


Velvet Matte Skin Tint SPF 30 delivers soft-matte perfection and protection. This oil-free formula delivers NARS’ signature natural-looking finish and shine control with the skincare benefits of an all-in-one treatment.

NARS’ innovative Velvet Illusion Complex technology creates a soft-focus effect with a soft-touch feel. Transparent Blurring Powders instantly enhance the look of skin by helping to blur imperfections and even tone – naturally dimensional skin that doesn’t look flat, masked, or chalky.

The unique, spherical shape of the Transparent Blurring Powders compress like a cushion, delivering a velvety feel and superior comfort upon application. Rose Fruit Extract refines the appearance of pores and controls shine.

This ultra-blendable skin tint glides on smooth delivering sheer-to-medium coverage that lasts comfortably through the day. From the lightest ivory to the deepest mahogany, an expertly refined range of 12 global shades offers soft-matte coverage for every skintone. Instant perfection, at the ready.

Charged with vitamins C, E, and broad spectrum SPF 30.
