Yet another foundation sample that has enough product to cover my entire face?! Thank goodness! Today, I am testing out the @narsissist Velvet Matte Foundation Stick ($45 for .31 ounces on @narsissist’s website – https://shopstyle.it/l/7Syo).
What it claims:
🔘 Medium, buildable coverage
🔘 Soft matte finish
🔘 All skin types
🔘 Sweat-resistant formula
🔘 For all skin tones
👎🏻 I find it odd that I received this sample fairly recently because, in my search for a price, I realize it has been discontinued.
👎🏻 When it was available, it only came in 20 shades and the range appears to have been pretty unbalanced.
👍🏻 I used the lightest sample shade, Deauville Light 4 (light with a neutral balance of pink and yellow undertones), and it worked well enough with my skin tone.
👍🏻 It blended out easily and worked well with all of the products I layered on top.
👍🏻👎🏻 I was a bit oily around halfway through my day and it continued to get progressively more so, so I applied a bit more powder on and around my nose.
👎🏻 It started wearing off on my chin near the end of my work day (around eight (8) hours in).
Thank goodness this wasn’t the greatest foundation I had ever tested because, if it had been, I wouldn’t be able to purchase it! Now, if the claims sound like a foundation that would work perfectly for you, it looks like you can still find it on some sale websites and you may even come across it at a discount retailer. However, if you aren’t wowed like I wasn’t wowed, you can add this to your pass list.
