          Comments about NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

          I've used other powders before but this one is too messy. Every time I open it there is too much on the top, and I can see that it gets on the counter very easily. I believe it is a problem of design - the container is not designed well.

          gave good coverage but it always gave a white cast and i always had to beware of taking photos with the flash becuase the flashback is terrible, i looked like a ghost in photos with this on. plus i wasted a lot of product becuase of how messy it was.

            Comments about NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder:

            I wanted a light powder to set my liquid foundation for smoother bronzer & blush application, & this one did the job great plus more! My skin looks soo airbrushed immediately after laying this on. Just be careful not to go in with too much/a heavy hand, or it can make your baby hairs appear a bit white.

                        This powder is photography friendly, however due to the formula there is a small possibility it could show up in some flash heavy photography.

                      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.
