Rated 4.13 out of 5 stars
I literally got fired over this powder. I'm a freelance artist and spent many years working for a competing brand (the one with the ˆ in the name) — and this Nars powder was SO intensely better (not to mention half the price) than the other brands best-selling powder. Whenever I had a client in need of setting powder, I ALWAYS showed the the Nars Light Reflecting powder instead. In fact, I sold the Nars counter out of their stock numerous times and the counter manager had to request addtl stock from corporate. Even on the darkest skin that hesitated to try it found that it IMMEDIATELY disappeared while at the same time giving the skin an unmatched smoothness. I have a small amount of acne scarring from my teen years, and nothing even comes close to both the smoothing, mattifying and staying power this powder has. JUST BUY IT! NO HESITATION!
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!!

It smells really bad, like there's mold inside. I would like a refund and replacement.

This is the best powder I have ever used in all my years of wearing and experimenting with makeup. We all know how hard it is to find a good makeup setting powder. I can honestly say that I have never had a powder whether loose or pressed, make my foundation look good…at all. Powders left my foundation lookingl thick and cakey, dry, accentuating every fine line. I searched the horizons forever. Need to mention foundation, couldn't find one to truly fall in love with. One day shopping at Ulta I asked the girl working If she could recommend a good foundation and setting powder. She said, have you tried NARS. I hadn't. She showed me the loose Peter and the foundation. We tested a spot on my neck to match. I bought it and used the next morning. WOW!!! I couldn't believe how my eyes. My face looked airbrushed. It did not dry me out. Does not cake. Does not separate. Does accentuate fine lines. Pores are non existent. It lasts all day. I get so many compliments on my makeup and how good my skin looks. Some don't believe I am wearing makeup. My search for the perfect powered…. And foundation, has finally come to an end. I hope NARS never stops making this and please don't tweak it or play with it. It needs no improvements. Let it be. I love this stuff! Seriously forget all the loose and pressed powders out there. You've found it right here. Also, you can use a powder brush or a fluffy puff to set face. I usr a puff. The container is spill proof since it has a net over the powder, so you won't be wasting powder. And it's compact enough to put in your makeup bag to take along with you for touch ups.

I really wanted to love this powder I gave it a few tries with a few different primers/foundations and applicators and it just settled into my smiles lines and nasal folds so badly. The one good thing I did like was how finely milled it is.

This is an okay transluscent powder that is very similar to the Bare Minerals one which is cheaper. I wouldn't break the bank to get this powder tbh. My all time favorite remains FX factor as this one doesn't make much difference ( I have oily skin). I don't think this is mattifying enough and I don't see the reflecting capability. I use it more during winter time but that's about it

Keeps makeup looking great all day - works best with the matching foundation but also great with others. I have normal/oily skin for reference.

This is a nice powder, but it honestly smells like chinese food. That sounds strange, but it's all I can ever smell when applying it. I definitly don't want my face smelling like chinese food so I'll either be dumping it or putting my NYX loose powder (fantastic powder btw) in this container since I do like the packaging. I've seen other reviews that said it smells like stale food also. It's a shame as I love almost all NARS products.

I'm a fan of the brand and know they put out quality products, so I went into this with a decent sized expectation. I wasn't let down. This formula is completely translucent and it's almost as if your brush isn't putting any product on upon application

I use Nars sheer glow in Barcelona and having dry skin, powder with TALC is usually itchy on my skin. This is not the case with this powder and nor does it make my skin get dry,nor suck the life out of it. It blurs pores and and my make up looks perfect whole day. My only request to Nars is bring a shade between Crystal and Shore. Shore is darker on my skin and gives a bronzer look. Adding a banana, peach, pink shade would be amazing

I was worried about using a white translucent powder but this goes on easy and sets my makeup much better than what I used to use.

This made my face look patchy and just horrible! I wish I would not have taken the recommendation.

I didn't know that I was going to end up loving this as much as I did. It looks so good under the eyes it doesn't look cakey or too white. ￼ It doesn't feel Chalky or heavy. Doesn't feel dry either . Overall I was pleasantly surprised ￼and it has become a staple in my beauty routine. I would highly recommend
