Best set powder ever!! I love this powder. It's the most finely milled powder you'll ever use. I know we hear that being throw around often. But no seriously this is the finest powder you'll ever use!! It's so fine it's hard to detect on brush but trust me it's there. Gives a flawless finish doesn't settle into lines and feels silky smooth on skin. It last all day and makes the face look flawless. Doesn't add any color to the face either. I know people love the loose I prefer this pressed. I do t believe all pressed translucent powders are the same. Not true some settle and make u look like an old lady. No offense. This is a must have. I do have normal non problematic skin. Age 30
I hate giving 2 stars but this product didn't work for me at all. Hands down the packaging is gorgeous but the product was 2 thumbs down. Whatever brush, sponge, finger I used the product would not adhere at all! I read reviews after I bought it where you have to scrape a layer off first & then it'll work. I wasn't going to ruin it because it was kinda pricey at $37. Returned it. So sad because it looked so pretty.
Cannot live without this product!! It was recommended to me by someone at Nars. I was a little hesitant to purchase because I thought it seemed like an unnecessary addition to my make-up regimen but, boy, was I wrong!! It makes my problem skin look flawless by minimizing pores and evening skin tone. It sets makeup my makeup for hours too. I've repurchased twice now and will continue to. Highly, highly recommend!!
This is the best setting powder! I have combination skin but my makeup all melts off by the end of the day. This product is so light, I barely notice I am wearing a powder. It also sets my makeup and my under eye concealer but never looks cakey, which is a common problem for me with other powders. This also helps my makeup last longer and gives me a natural glow. Love t!
This powder is excellent, truly keeps everything set and in place! It is super white so sometimes there can be flash back if you bake with it but if you want a long lasting face this will make it happen! Works for all skin tones and the pan size is very nice! Packaging is heavy duty and if you drop it your powder won't explode! Great mirror in the compact too!
Use this to set my foundation where I haven't applied other powder products already. Does a really good job at making my makeup matte but not caked on. A little bit of product goes a long way. The only thing I don't like is how it is kind of hard to pick up onto my powder brush. Other wise it's amazing and a staple in my makeup bag.
I just recently purchased this and while its nice I feel like it doesn't last the longest. Maybe about 4 hours. The great thing about it though is that the compact is substantial enough that I can carry it with me in my purse and not fear it breaking. I also like that it does help blur my rather large pores, and doesn't look cakey.
I've tried translucent powders from many other brands before, but none of them have the finish this powder does.. it makes your skin look like it has a soft sheen just a healthy satin glow. This powder has a thin film you need to scratch off or wipe to be able to get powder to transfer. Quite pricey but so beautiful !!!
This is such a good powder. The makeup artist who is doing my makeup for my wedding suggested this powder to me I purchased it at Sephora and it is great. Its perfect for setting your concealer under your eyes and touch ups throughout the day. I love the packaging and the fact that it absorbs oil so well. Thumbs up!
I am OBSESSED with this powder. i picked up on a whim and honestly, i fell in love. I'm considering getting the loose powder and even quitting my laura mercier altogether. at first, i was confused by the texture of it and truly thought I would end up returning it, but after trying it, i was SO pleasantly surprised
Q & A
Do you think Nars is an expensive brand?
what setting powders would you compare to this?
Does this mattify your face??
Does this stay for at least 6 hours? And when you put it on, what kind of finish does it give? Full/medium/ or sheer coverage?
I've never used setting powder before. Do you need it and if so why? TY I've always wondered if the foundation was enough. I do hate the look sometimes of the roughness of the foundation but love the overage?
