Most Helpful Positive Review Great Invisible/Universal Colorless Setting Powder
This is truly a universal colorless loose setting powder. Natalie99, this is NOT a "light" shade powder, this is a LIGHT REFLECTING LOOSE SETTING POWDER. In other words, this is a loose powder that is meant to set your foundation and will reflect light, it is colorless, it is transparent, hence suitable for ALL skin tones (from the fairest to the richest), therefore, like the description states, enhancing the look of your foundation without a trace of color.
Most Helpful Critical Review Shine Bright Like a Diamond?
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!!

The mill isn't as fine as Laura Mercier, but the finish is nice
Great for Under Eyes, But...
Aaren from FL
I always search for a similar setting powder, but none have the weightless feeling that this product has. It's made with Silica instead of Talc, so you get a really nice flawless finish with ZERO caking. I have really deep set eyes and this is the only powder that never settles into those tear trough lines. The only negative, and this could just be me- I do notice that one eye will start tearing up after I apply the powder. Maybe I'm just having a personal reaction to it and I do use it everyday so, who knows. But overall this is a great setting powder!
KBrooks from North Carolina
This powder is so silky and lightweight. Applies beautifully without feeling or looking heavy. Sets makeup for the day. Doesn't change the color of your foundation which I love. Looks flawless. The only con would be that it spills easily, maybe because of the fluffy silky softness but I love it.
Teresa from Advance, Missouri
I love this. Leaves such a silky feel, it's light and doesn't emphasize my pores.
Th packaging needs to be redesigned
Princess1908 from Orlando
I like the coverage, but I dislike using the product. It is too difficult to manage because the packaging is not structured to limit the powder flow in an effective way. There are other powders that cover as well and are packaged to travel and disperse volume better.
Great undereye powder!
Amber from Texas
Really love this powder! I have tried several high end powders under my eyes and this is by far the best! This preserves my concealer without looking dry. Great recommendation by @youngwildandpolished.
Not for me
Beachfan from Kalaheo Kauai
It's to red for my olive tone, on me it looks dry and caked up .
Love it. On my must have list.
Jj from Pittsburgh
Love it love it love it. Didn't expect to love it but do. Had not good experience with translucent powder. NARS rocks.
Far too red for my medium dark skin
MarieJ from undisclosed
I was thrilled to read about this new product in sunstone for darker skin tones. Great feel but far too red for my skin. I am a Black woman with medium dark skin with warm undertone.
QueenV824 from undisclosed
I brought this powder about a month ago, I will say this is best setting powder, I have ever purchased. I have combination oily skin and I tend to struggle with setting powders. But this is one is a winner. It keeps me matte all day with no flash back. Team NARS always

For my face because that's what it is for.
love everything but the smell
Janie D from Dallas
I bought this bcuz I was out of Lancome setting powder. It works very well, a light but thorough application sets my foundation quickly and leaves a soft smooth finish to my skin. I would like it better than Lancome, but for the smell. I used a brand new brush on it, and after just about 10 days of use, I find I'm holding my breath during application. Currently looking for another brand to try based solely on the bad smell, but the product definitely works well and that is the only complaint.

Great setting powder. will keep buying
Holy grail for me!
Calli from Springfield, Missouri
I can use this in all seasons year around. It does not dry me out. I does control oil for me without looking heavy or cakey. I can easily touch up with this. I use it when I've applied my blush too heavy & it softens it beautifully. Reminds me of mineral veil but better in my opinion. Can see a little white cast but it dissipates within 5 minutes. This is worth every penny! However, I do not like or recommend the pressed version of this
Barley wanna talk about it
Reviewer from Florida
I'm so grossed out! I put on the powder and 2 minute after I put it on it started to show up. White powder showed up on my face as if I hadn't even blended it!
Nice & light
Lindylou from VA
Bought to replace another brand I had been using & can't get anymore. It's perfect.
Gucci MUA from Florida
Listen I love Nars and their lipsticks and other things but when it came to when I needed a cheaper setting powder I thought this would do it after seeing friends using it. But, the powder does absolutely nothing. And I felt like I just had dust on my face so in all, don't buy this and don't support this powder as it does stink.
Valkiko from Orlando
Really soft. I use this to set up my foundation its very soft. Very natural but i feel like its really white so sometimes i look like a ghost.
Anyway for my every day makeup i use this with nars tinted moisturizer and everything looks so good smooth and natural.
Russian girl from TX
I have been using this powder for a month and I am truly amazed. It was recommended by a Ulta consultant when I was looking for a setting/mattifying powder. A little goes a long way with this product. It sets my makeup perfectly giving me flawless airbrushed appearance. Even my husband noticed how good my face looked and commented on it! I love that it is translucent as I prefer my makeup to look more natural. I will definitely repurchase this one!
great for minimizing pores! not great for baking
caro from miami
This product is great if you know how to use it! Its fantastic to set your foundation and concealer - it minimizes pores and the "glimmer" in the product gave my complexion an overall matte but healthy finish. The only thing is the flashback if you try to bake! I learned my lesson when I tried to bake under my eyes. Hopefully they can release a version where it can bake but in the meantime I use it to set my foundation!
