This is my go-to “foundation” for everyday use. I have dry skin but find my t-zone oily by the end of the day. This is a matte skin tint but has impeccable coverage and doesn’t dry out my face or cling to dry patches whatsoever. I love the SPF in the tint because it doesn’t have flashback which is important to me when using foundation. Also, I don’t end up greasy at the end of the day like I do with other sunscreen formulas and I can wear this for around 9-10 hours while looking fresh. The color match is a little difficult with NARS because they tend to stick with tan shades but the terre-nueve shade is almost perfect for me. The shades are slightly yellow under-toned but it matches my pink undertone just fine. Would recommend to anyone looking for an easy foundation. You can apply with your hands as you would for a moisturizer but can get more coverage with a damp beauty blender.

I love nars products and this one is one of the reasons why. Their color range for me is awesome because there’s a perfect match for when Im more tan and when I’m pale. I like more of a yellow undertone and their range of warm tones are incredible. This formula is so lightweight yet still gives I would say medium/buildable coverage even though its a skin tint. It glides on so creamy and dries to a satin matte finish-I would say. I cannot rave about how perfect this shade is for me. I wish they made it in the radiant longwear foundation but this will do for now. If your looking for something not too heavy yet decent coverage for everyday I definitely recommend this product. NARS never lets me down! NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Review for: Alaska (light w/a neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones) more...
This was one of my biggest foundation fails. I was extremely excited for this launch & had so much faith in this product that I wore it to work the first time I used it AND didn’t take a backup foundation in case it didn’t work. When I applied it at first it looked amazing!! My skin looked so smooth & velvety, I was in love. I went to go look in the mirror 4 hours into my shift & it had started to break up in the corners of my nose & within two hours I was a patchy greasy mess. I was missing foundation all over the place, I had it clinging a lot to some & on a big portion I had very light foundation residue to none at all. I didn’t give it another chance because the result was an epic disaster.

This product completely changed my beauty routine! As I came out of my teenage years and my acne cleared up, I wanted to replace my heavy, full-coverage foundating with a lighter weight tinted moistuirizer. I tested out a number of products, and the NARS product by far was my favorite. It has, quite literally, a texture that feels like "velvet" when applied to the skin. I love how despite the high SFP and moisturizing properties, it does not leave an oily finish at all! Definitely not for someone looking to cover blemishes, but a great everyday use to even out the skin tone and look more polished. I can't live without it!!

Review for: St. Mortiz (mkedium w/a neutral yellow undertone) more...
So I use this almost everyday in the summer because it’s light and the sunscreen is ideal for me because I find that most sunscreens make me break out. It’s super easy to use and half the time I just applied it with my hands all over my face and felt good to go. My only real issue with the product was that it has a definite yellow/ orange undertone. Unless I took the time to really blend it well, it would leave me with a weird/ un natural color. My face is always a bit lighter than my body in the summer and this helped match my face color to my body once I had blended it well. It would last through out most of the day even when I was swimming or sweating. It was light coverage but this was perfect for beach days when I didn’t want to look like I was wearing makeup. I don’t find myself using it in the winter just because I like a little more coverage.

Review for: Cuzco (medium w/a neutral pink/peachy undertone), St. Mortiz (mkedium w/a neutral yellow undertone) more...
I've used this product for over a year and I really do like it! It is not the longest lasting product but the color match is spot on (when I mix Medium 1 & 2 together)! It's really hard for me to find the perfect match for my yellow undertones. If the skin is primed and set right this product is golden. If you're not a foundation girl but want some coverage this is the product!

My favorite tinted moisturizer ever. I love that it has spf30 and is yellow undertoned. It fits my skin shade perfectly during the summer. I personally like the smell of this tinted moisturizer, it smells like a sunscreen and i like that. It’s medium coverage and looks matte on the skin. Feels light to wear all day as well and I appreciate that so much.

I’m not sure why this is called a SKIN TINT when it’s beautiful full coverage with a medium to light weight feel to it. It sets sooo beautifully I’m clearly biased towards NARS Because they do face makeup RIGHT. They get the undertones perfect for my deep skin and this sets and looks like a filter. They need to expand the line of the skin tints because it’s quite limited.

I love NARS foundations, I have extremely sensitive skin and I can wear them everyday without problems. After reading reviews I was scared to try this, then remembered if I didn't care for it I could simply return it. This is not like any skin tint I've ever used before, the coverage is amazing! I didn't need concealer to hide my red blotches, this product covered them effortlessly. It doesn't contain any shimmer which I like, and comes out a very nice consistency. It isn't super creamy nor is it watery, it's a nice medium between the two. I have found that it is best applied with a damp beauty blender or your fingers, I tried a brush and a silicone makeup applicator and they left streaks.

This stuff is amazing, and I am a big fan of NARS products to begin with. I am glad that it is SPF because I love multitaskers, and it truly is a matte finish. The color selection is great, and it blends well. My only issue is that it is slightly too high of a coverage level for me, so I would only use it for a full face look.

Is this basically foundation? If now, what is a "skin tint," is it like a tanner?
