Lily, I am fond of you and I say this with love: avert your eyes. 😀 Had to be done! Get a load of those EYEBROWS though! Can ya’ll tell I’m happy? Can you? Mess. A couple of things going on here. First, I used the new NARS Matte Skin Tint. It’s exactly what it says it is: a matte skin tint. That means you will get a tint with no coverage. You see that blemish over my right eyebrow? Is it covered? Right.
So, if you’re thinking that it’s a tint that behaves like a foundation (like the Radiant Tinted Moisturizer), you’re going to be disappointed. Basically they mixed some pigments in a mattifying liquid and stuck it in a tube. The finish is exquisite, but there’s no coverage to speak of. You have been warned.
I built the entire look around those damn lips, which honestly had to be taken down. Urban Decay X (Gwen Stefani) Phone Call is BRIGHT. Like… BRIGHT. So I put it on, blotted it down, and then slapped Anastasia Gilded lipgloss in the center and blotted it again. Sheesh.
Everything, with the exception of the cheeks (GS: Easy) is neutral. Just beige on the lids and medium brown in the crease and intensified under the waterline, black on the lash line and a coat of Geisha Ink Mascara (which I’m honestly just trying to use up. It’s not that good).
I like the new NARS skin tint, but it is NOT a replacement for my ever favorite Tinted Moisturizer. It’s not. There’s no coverage and I’m not fond of ‘tinting’ my skin. I’d like it to stay the same color, thank you (you can see the color change as soon as you put it on). Full review goes up this week.
I see I’m gonna have to mess around and maybe get another TM backup. I wonder if they’ll keep in the refrigerator…
