NARS Pressed Powder
Review for: Syracuse more...
10/10 powder. It goes well with the sheer glow foundation. All of my face products are NARS and they all work extremely well together. Matte finish and helps to keep my foundation put. There is a sponge inside but I use a regular brush with it. I have repurchased many times.
This iconic product that is known to all! I would like to join all the positive reviews about it. I'll start with the packaging, it is very stylish and pleasing to the touch. The product itself inside the better. It is well typed, it has a silky texture and a very versatile shade that will suit most of the skin undertone. Good in application.
Review for: Pressed Soleil more...
Though this is a pressed powder, I've actually been using this to contour since the shade "Soleil" that I have, is a while lot darker than my skin tone. Since I received this as a gift, I figured I'd get creative and use it as a blush or for contouring. I'm sure I would like this a whole lot more if the shade actually matched me.
I found this product while rummaging around in someone else's makeup bag, looking for something to set my foundation. The color was totally off since, after all, it wasn't mine, but the product formula itself did a good job.
This is terrible, just like the NARS powder. This sits on your skin and does not blend. It is extremely chalky and goes on like baby powder. This is ESPECIALLY NOT for women with dry skin. This is a glorified oil blotter. It offers zero coverage and the shades do not matter because it does not blend with your skin it just lays on top of it as if someone blew baby powder onto your face. I cannot believe that they have not changed the formula for this and offer it for this price tag and call it "foundation". This is certainly not foundation. This is only good for blotting up oil and setting ACTUAL liquid foundation. There are tons of other better products for that that are much cheaper.

I always used mac and decided to try something else for a change. I use this just alone or with liquid foundation. Perfect for all skin types. Goes on Nice and smoothly. This does not dry your skin out if you like powder this is your product. Search no more.
I normally love NARS products but I do not like this powder. It is very chalky and sits ON the skin instead of blending into it. This is especially terrible for those with dry skin. Unless your face is recently moisturized and heavy with oil this powder will just lay on top of your skin looking like baby powder. I bought this and returned it the next day. It offers absolutely no coverage what so ever. This might be good for someone with already perfect skin that just needs an oil blotter but for the price tag I would not recommend this to anyone.
I use this with my Nars Sheer Glow liquid foundation and like the combination of the two together. This foundation goes on very light and is buildable. It does cover my redness and acne and it does set my liquid foundation. I would not wear this powder without liquid foundation underneath because it does not cover as other powder foundations, such as makeup forevers powder foundation.
