What it is:
A one-of-a-kind, versatile matte foundation stick with a built-in, Touch-Up Blender for allover coverage or touch-ups on-the-go.

What it does:
This all-in-one matte foundation stick and pro tool offers all-over coverage or touch-ups on-the-go. Its soft-matte finish and creamy, blendable texture layers easily for medium to buildable coverage. Matte Rebound Powders enhance the glide and comfort of wear, while mattifying the look of skin. Elastomer micro beads provide extreme flexibility and elasticity to help prevent creasing by adapting to movement without settling into lines or wrinkles. Ginger root extract and vitamins A, C, and E support natural antioxidant protection and defend skin from environmental damages while helping to improve the appearance of smoothness and evenness. The foundation can be applied multiple ways: with fingertips, directly from the stick, or with the included removable Touch-Up Blender, to create various effects.

What else you need to know:
The built-in Touch-Up Blender enables alternative application and artistry effects. It’s a latex-free sponge designed specifically for use with the Velvet Matte Foundation Stick. It is washable, and anti-bacterial.

Research results:
In an independent U.S. consumer study of 67 women:

In an independent U.S. 4-week clinical study of 31 women over 4 weeks:

Suggested Usage:
-Apply directly from stick to layer and build coverage. Blend with fingertips to melt into the skin.
-Use Touch-Up Blender to stipple or buff foundation in targeted areas.
-Sculpt the face with a lighter shade for highlighting and a deeper shade for contouring.
-Apply Radiant Creamy Concealer with fingertips or NARS #12 Cream Blending Brush under eyes and to minimize skin imperfections (each sold separately).

To clean Touch-Up Blender:
-Wash by lathering mild soap or shampoo with warm water.
-Blot away excess water and allow to air dry.
