DELIVERS A FLAWLESS SOFT-FOCUS FINISH THAT FEELS COMFORTABLE AND NEVER LOOKS DRY
Mineral Tone Balancing Powder works to optically correct, not mask, imperfections. Unique powders even skin tone and provide invisible skin correction so skin looks radiant, fresh and natural.
SKIN LOOKS NATURAL IN ANY LIGHT
Photochromic Technology alters the tone of the complexion with the intensity of light, reducing that “washed out/chalky” appearance that can occur when makeup products are exposed to sunlight or flash photography. The result is a healthy, natural-looking complexion in any light.
KEEPS SKIN HEALTHY TODAY AND TOMORROW
A blend of Vitamins A, C and E delivers antioxidant benefits protecting the skin against harmful free radical damage.
HOW TO USE:
Can be used alone, to set foundation and makeup or to soften color intensity on the face or eye.
An indispensable tool to create the NARS signature Smoky Eye: Use it to set the cream base and apply after each additional color to create a cloud-like effect.
With a Brush: Dip into powder then tap off excess. Apply to the face using circular motions starting in the center of the face and working outwards until blended.
With a Puff: Dip into powder then tap off excess. Apply by pressing and rolling the puff onto the skin.
If desired, finish by buffing skin with the #10 Powder Brush or the Ita Kabuki Brush.

Review for: BEACH more...
I bought this last year and the powder did last me a whole year. I do think it helps keep my makeup set for long periods of time. Other than those two pros, i have some issues. One is that it makes your face very pale and you need a lot of bronzer to make up for it. It also is very messy and goes everywhere! I don’t use it anymore.

I’m not a huge fan of this powder. There are tiny shimmers in it and there’s a lot of flashback. It’s a loose powder so of course it is a little messy but that’s not an issue for me. It’s also not a ton of product so i’d settle for a drugstore powder like coty airspun.

One of the best loose powders and I'm a snob when it comes to that. Leaves skin absolutely poreless, flawless for the whole day. Makes any foundation stay on forever. Adds color, feels super light weight, can be applied in different ways, always looks great, doesnt break me out. I have sensitive and combination skin. A+
Got this in December, but I haven’t used it too too much. It did leave my makeup lasting longer and my skin did look smoother too. However my skin has been really dry and haven’t used it much. I’m sure I’ll use it when t gets hot.
I don’t even bother trying out other brands anymore. All of my foundation and base products are from NARS because they never fail. The loose powder is pricey but the jar lasts, at minimum, a full year of 5x a week use.

I love this setting powder. It comes in translucent and even though it sets my makeup, I still have a nice dewy glow with it. It’s pretty reasonably priced and lasts forever. Literally. I highly recommend this product.
Q & A
I've always wanted one but there always to expensive and I wanna know if this is heavy on your face or is its soft ?does it make you break out easily ?
I've been hearing mixed reviews about this one and I really want to try it. I'm just kind of nervous. I have light skin and I want something to blend in well and still makes my skin looking fresh and clean. Will this do the trick?
Does this product leave a matte finish?
What's the best way to use this product??
Would you recommend this loose powder over the Laura Mercier loose powder?
