Product Review: NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

Hey Dolls, I’m back again with a product review. I made a visit to Sephora just to try out the new Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder in Translucent Crystalfrom Nars. I know, I know…..another Nars product. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Nars, because I haven’t found one product that failed me. According to Nars, “Enhances the look of foundation without a trace of color and prolongs makeup wear. This invisible silky powder is infused with Photochromic Technology to diffuse light and adjust to new sources of light throughout the day”. If you have combination/oily skin you may need this product in your life. With the help of monistat chafing gel as a primer for my BB cream, this powder sets my makeup in place, with little to no oil (I had to blot at least once, after 6hrs). I love the fact that the powder is translucent, so when I apply my foundation (Macao), which is a perfect match, the powder doesn’t alter the color. So far, so good!

Overall Thoughts:

This is one of my favorite powders at the moment. My only concern was, when running late, and trying to apply my makeup in the car (loose powder = a mess). If loose powder is not in your favor, you can opt for the pressed powder version. Both products are equally priced. Aside from the mess that it can make, I absolutely love this product. This powder is very light, and I find myself reaching for it everyday to set my Iman BB cream. So far, this is a staple product for me.
Have you tried any new products lately?
