Oil-prone fans of the smash-hit Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer now have a matte (but not flat) new option: this lightweight tint is made with transparent blurring powders for a non-cakey, comfortable finish, and also packs skincare benefits.

Rose fruit extract helps minimize the appearance of pores and control shine, while vitamins C and E—both antioxidants—help protect against damage caused by free radicals. The sheer- to medium-coverage Velvet Matte formula comes in 12 shades, from Terre-Neuve (Light 0) to Polynesia (Dark 1).

Pro tip: For the realest-looking finish, swap your makeup brush for fingertips. “At Nars, we always apply with our hands. François [Nars] really believes our hands are among our best tools,” explains Nars national lead stylist Gillian Okopny. “This blends into skin flawlessly. There’s no ‘seam.’”
