OVERVIEW:
BLEND THE RULES
Matte maker. Rule breaker. Look changer. Introducing the first foundation stick with a built-in, removable Touch-Up Blender designed exclusively to be used with the Velvet Matte Foundation Stick. This all-in-one pro tool and foundation stick can be used for all-over coverage or touch-ups on-the-go. Its soft-matte finish and creamy, blendable texture layer easily for medium-buildable coverage. It can be applied multiple ways: with fingertips, directly from the stick or with the removable Touch-Up Blender, to create various effects.

Uniquely latex-free, the multi-purpose Touch-Up Blender makes artistry effortless with a simple, waterless application. The perfecting effects are right at your fingertips: apply directly to skin from the stick to layer and build allover coverage. Blend in with fingertips, or use the Touch-Up Blender to stipple on and buff targeted areas of the face. The result: instantly smooth, comfortable, soft-matte perfection that doesn’t dry, streak, or look cakey. Stick it to the rules.

BLEND IT
Blend product in with your fingertips, allowing it to melt into skin.
STIPPLE IT
Using a patting or stippling motion, gently dab or buff the Touch-Up Blender on areas where you need a more precise application—such as around the nose and the corners of the eyes.
TO CLEAN TOUCH-UP BLENDER
Wash by lathering mild soap or shampoo with warm water. Blot away excess water and allow to air dry.

Review for: Tahoe, Macao more...
I'm still trying to figure out how to work with this. It seems like it doesn't work well with some primers and setting sprays (seemed to oxidize everytime I use my elf setting spray). I use Tahoe to highlight which works and use Macao for the reminder of my face. I have a love/hate relationship with Macao. There are times when the finish of this (soft matte I think) and the tone look amazing on me. Other times, it gets a very faint orange undertone (which is noticiable compared to my neck and chest). I can tone it down with powder, but it can look cakey if I layer it on. 
This has a cream to powder feel so this is great for oily/combo skin. I got this on flash deal site, so I won't complain about the price. 
Overall, this is a good product to travel with and oily/combo skin. My main issue is the slight orange glow

Review for: Santa Fe more...
I love Nars products. They have always worked great for me. I use a liquid foundation at home and use this one for touch ups and keep it in my bag. I have used for full face foundation and it goes on smooth and creamy. A little does go a long way. I would draw a couple lines on your face with it, blend and then see if you need to add more. The coverage is medium but build lightly. I feel it’s veered more for combo normal or dry skin

I've just recently bought this and wow I love it. The foundation is just like it claims which is velvet matte. I love this foundation for the medium to full coverage it offers and how you could really build this up if you wanted it just a little heavier during the night. The sponge is also great it's no beauty blender but it works great for travel and on the go women like me and you can remove it to wash it so that's amazing. All for $45 at Sephora and one more thing I love of this product is the benefits it offers to the skin while your wearing it I suffer from light acne and it really helps it not to irritate my skin or anything like that. Overall in love

Review for: New Orleans more...
This has to be my absolute favorite foundation stick I have ever tried.  It's a perfect match, creamy enough to blend but not so creamy that if you have oily skin you'll be a grease ball.  Stays all day on me with powder, doesn't break me out, I love it.   I personally don't bother with the sponge on the end, I prefer using a real techniques sponge, so I can't comment on that part.  If I had a complaint, I wish you got more product for the price.  That's my only complaint.

Review for: Santa Fe more...
I have the shade Santa Fe medium, matches my skin color perfectly! I feel like I always use less product with the foundation sticks than the liquids and think the sticks have better coverage, seems to be a little thicker consistency than the liquids, obviously. I never use the blending tool at the end I usually use damp disposable sponges, but it blends out beautifully and has a nice smooth matte finish. It is a little pricey, so definitely not gonna purchase it for everyday use but it’s a great product, one of the best coverages I’ve tried actually.

Review for: Tahoe more...
I bought this because i had the radiant foundation which matched amazingly in shade BUT not the finish. I need matte foundations because I’m oily.. I also had the radiant foundation in the shade Tahoe... now with this stick it glides on like butter! super soft and blendable.. the only issue is it runs really light! I don’t know why it’s lighter than the liquid foundation. I always do flash tests with foundations and it was VERY obvious! Get a shade darker!! can’t be out here looking ashy !!

MY FAVORITE foundation for the moment. I love this foundation. It doesn’t move, which is important, and it’s full coverage which I love. I’ve been using it for a few months now and the finish that it leaves on my face is perfect.

Review for: Punjab more...
The only good thing about this foundation was the shade. It separates like crazy and I still looked oily a few hours after wearing it. The sponge on the end of it is pointless and does not blend the foundation at all.
