Spring is here, Summer is almost here and no one likes a heavy foundation during the hot seasons. Tinted moisturisers always come in handy whenever you just want something light that can even out your skintone. When you have very oily skin, finding a good tinted moisturiser that will not leave you oily in a minute is a bit hard so when I saw the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint on the Sephora website, I knew I had to get it and try it, plus it has SPF30!

This is my first Nars purchase so I cannot compare it to other tinted moisturisers by the brand but it comes in 12 different shades and I opted for the shade, Polynesia Dark 1. According to Nars, the Velvet Matte Skin Tint with SPF 30/PA+++ effortlessly presents and protects with a soft-matte finish. The oil-free formula wears comfortably, maintaining skins natural moisture barrier, while working to control shine throughout the day. It helps to blur imperfections, even the look of skintone and smooth the appearance of pores and fine lines.

I have only used it twice but so far so good and I think it is enough for me to know that I love it. I wore it throughout the day on both days and it kept me matte for about 7 and a half hours. My nose is the only place that got oily really and this comes from someone who gets oily everywhere and not just the T-zone. I did not wear any primer or any setting powder.

The Matte Skin Tint has a sheer coverage but you can easily build it to medium coverage so it will not cover all imperfections. My acne scar did slightly peak through but I did not mind. My skin looked evened out and matte just how I like it. It stayed in place and did not separate or crease.

The formula is very lightweight which makes it so comfortable to wear. Made me forget I was wearing any makeup.


Next day with a full face of makeup

It is easy to blend. I used my fingers to apply it and then used a damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge which gave me a smooth finish. It looked a bit red when I was applying it but it looked great once I was done blending it into my skin.

Overall, I think it is an amazing tinted moisturiser and I will be getting a few more products from Nars. LOVE IT.

What is your favourite tinted moisturiser?

Lots of love,

  1. Great review! Sounds really good for the summer. What do you think about the price point? You have great skin without makeup by the way! ��

    1. Thanks hun. The price point is a little pricey and expected for a high end tinted moisturiser but it is worth it. Awwww thanks, I think its the lighting but it is getting better thanks to 2 litres of water and the moisturiser that I will be my next review 😊 X
