Velvet Matte Foundation Stick is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use amazing result I just brought this and it’s the best thing ever. Covers well, blends easily and stays on face. Best of all, it’s a great handy size with the brush on other side. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect Hi Im not normally a nars fan! I have tried sheer glow and the matte velvet. Both were slightly grey and very yellow on me. I also broke out with those and my concealer. However! today I tried the this nars F.stick and. the match was perfect. When it was first applied it clung to all my dry patches and it also transferred a lot! but after walking around the mall with it, I looked in the mirror and was really surprised. Im oily/combination and within half an hour most foundations are disappearing. this F.stick It is light weight. I didn't even feel it on my skin. My only issue was even later than night it was transferring onto my phone where I had it against my face. I then when to wipe the make up off and the coverage was amazing, still loads left for me to wash off! more than I normally wear. So id say if I can find a setting spray to stop the transfer this could be my holy grail. Coming from a girl who has tried every foundation that there is with no luck or match. So id say definitely give it ago. It is creamy and easy to apply!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad texture I was extremely excited for this product. Unfortunately it does not fit my skin at all. The color was ok (as usually in NARS products) but the texture was way too creasy for me. When you apply it to your face it just moves around and does not stay. Very dissapointed. I would not recommend this product although I love NARS as a brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word - amazing I purchased this 1 month ago as a avid sheer glow and all day luminous foundation fan I was dubious on using this stick. However purchased in colour Barcelona same colour as the above foundations. I love it from first use it glides on so easily and easy to work with and even once on it doesn’t feel dry or flakey ( some other sticks I have used do this to my skin) . I got complemented on my skin from the first time I used it. Handy as you can pop in your bag a touch using the sponge on the other end, perfect for travelling light and compact. I personally use a damp beauty blender and works wonders. Well done Nars for exceeding my very high expections.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Let down.. I was so disappointed with this product. Found it so hard to blend, and was expecting more coverage.. and more foundation! The stick ran out SO quickly and I was only using it for light day-to-day makeup. Also, I’m not sure if it was just mine but the blender smelt horrible and I could smell it in my Foundation all day. I have normal-oily skin and this made my t-zone super oily, powder couldn’t stop it and it basically melted on my face! Normally you pay for what you get with Nars so this is definitely overpriced, stick to all day luminous! Using the blender on other foundations turns out it’s pretty good so it’s the only thing I’d recommend..
