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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Orleans Dark 2 I usually only purchase Nars Matte lipstick however I gave the foundation a try and I am SOLD! I receive so many compliments and it goes great with my skins natural undertone. The Velvet Matte Foundation Stick offers great coverage and really highlights my natural tone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blends well to match my tone Love the case, easy for travel (no spills etc). I got this to help prevent the oily look I sometimes get with my old foundation during the day. I have dry skin with oily T zone and this def gives me a flawless look through the day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick and lightweight I’m on to my 2nd stick in “Stromboli” and I’ve been using the velvet matte foundation stick for about 2 months now. It’s a really nice formula, other than it does have a tendancy to cling somewhat to dry patches on the face. However this is to be expected with creme foundations, I also find that this can be minimised with a good primer and the technique used to apply. The sponge applicator shouldn’t be used for your full face, I would steer clear of a beauty blender also, I’ve found that this foundation works best with a flat top kabuki brush. when applied with the brush it’s quick and easy to blend out and the radiant creamy concealer works perfectly with this foundation too. I don’t tend to find the foundation moving around throughout the day, I do set my face with a setting spray and it holds up very well throughout the day and well into the evening. When I come to taking makeup off on a night time, my face looks just as good as when I applied it... with the exception of my nose. I have this problem with every foundation though, it’s because I subconsciously touch my nose throughout the day and it wears the product away.
