Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

I absolutely love NARS! But I was disappointed with this product. I knew it was light reflective- but I was seriously a ghost in every picture! I applied on my face with a fluffy brush just so I wouldn't cake it on too heavily. When someone took a picture with the flash on, I was like Edward Cullen when he walks into sunlight. I could probably jog outside in the dark and not have to wear reflective gear.... I didn't think it would be that bright!!

Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

This is beautiful. I have combo skin, oily and dry with acne scars. This blurs and smooths. Looks sparkly in the package, but it's not on the face. It's light, smooth, kind of messy because it is such fine powder. Not drying or cakey. Might not control oil as much as a thicker dryer loose powder. This can also be used as a final finishing powder over other powder to make everything more diffused.

    Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

    I have tried just about every setting powder on the market and they all tend to cake/flake on dry patches and under my eyes. This is the only one that truly blurs and softens the look of my skin. If you find it's settling into lines, you're most likely being too heavy-handed with your brush. Lightly dust with a smaller amount and reapply until you get the right coverage. So so happy ulta is carrying Nars now. I hope they continue to add products to this site.

    Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

    So, I read all of the awesome reviews and decided to splurge on this, since I was almost out.
    I honestly didn't see anything special about it.
    At the end of the day, my makeup had still settled into my pores and lines. I honestly think it was worse than it is with the much cheaper NYX HD powder I had been using! It's also not as silky as the NYX.
    I doubt I would purchase this again, since I don't see the price point justification.

      Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

      It's very light weight and blends well. I use it for baking and bought it for bridal makeup. I have yet to see how it takes with the flash of a camera but in person it gives a really great finish!

          Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

          This product is good for baking and it has kind of a sparkly finish but its nice. The only problem with this powder is the flashback. I don't suggest using it if you know you're going to be taking flash photography but other than that its great. I personally just would not buy it again.

          Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

          Nothing bakes, sets and gives an HD finish like this powder. PERIOD. I have tried them all - Sisley, La Mer, Laura Mercier, MUFE, Smashbox etc. You will look phohotoshopped - it's that. Sets dry, sensitive eye area beautifully while keeping oil at bay. Highly, highly recommend.

          HG Powder!

          By Jennifer V

          from Frederick, MD

          Comments about NARS Online Only Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

          This is hands down my favorite setting powder. I know the Laura Mercier translucent powder is the most raved about, but this, for me, is as good as it gets. Truly sets your makeup, but without making skin look powdery. You can bake with it and no matter how much you pack on, it never looks like product is caked on your face. It blurs imperfections, and gives a beautiful but natural matte finish, which is near impossible to achieve. I don't want to sound corny, but I swear this stuff is magical!

              I am assuming that this does not give a powder-like finish, or a powder being so light it that "shows"?

                Our Light Reflecting Setting Powder is a translucent powder for all skintones. It creates a soft matte finish that looks luminous in light. It will help to enhance the look and wear of your foundation without a trace of color and keeps skin looking radiant all day long.

            • Q:

              I tend to just like a powder to cover my pores. I rarely wear make up. Does this hide or cover the pores without any makeup?

                A:

                This powder works best when used in conjunction with your foundation. It will help to set and enhances the look and wear of your makeup. However, it will help to smooth and blur fine lines, wrinkles, and even pores if you wanted to use without any foundation.
