Product Description

OVERVIEW:
Soft Velvet Loose Powder sets foundation, evens skin tone, controls oil, and smooths the texture of the skin. Built with the latest advances in artistry, it perfects any look for naturally polished, porcelain-looking skin.

An artistry essential, this lightweight powder brings a flawless, soft-focus finish to all complexions. Soft Velvet Loose Powder combines skincare ingredients to create a weightless, velvet-to-the-touch formula that keeps skin comfortable all day.

Hyaluronic Acid Bonded Powder creates a non-drying, comfortable finish. Fine lines, wrinkles, and pores optically fade as skin is visibly perfected. Photochromatic Technology keeps skin looking natural in any source of light.


BENEFITS:
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.

This setting powder is so finely milled and does such a great job at making my skin looked blurred and pore-less. I have dry skin and it’s not too drying to the point where my skin gets flakey either. I’m so happy I found this powder because although the Laura Mercier one does do the job I wasn’t obsessed with it. Nars is one of my favorite brands because they are not a “one hit wonder” so to speak. Many of their products are great including this one! NARS Soft Velvet Loose Powder

It was a very soft powder. Had bits of shimmer but in a very complementing way. Did leave behind a bit of flashback so I use it when I know I won’t be in any flash photography. Does leave too bad of a white cast, can easily be fixed with foundation powder.

I am obsessed with NARS all around....... it’s great for all skin types personally. Doesn’t give much protection from the sun. Great matte finish but I love it. I recommend this to absolutely everyone that loves NARS

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+

This powder is awesome. Very light and fine. I use it daily with a sponge under my eyes to set my concealer and then I use it over my whole face with a powder brush.

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 tried this powder at my job and I wasn’t in love but it worked well. I felt as tho it did last very long and I had to re apply. I have combination skin and it kept me oil free and matte. I would try again but for now I’ll try something new.

Great powder.  Good color matches. I use Desert with Vallauris or Mont Blank All Day Luminous Foundation. Finely-milled, never clumply, melts into skin, and sets makeup to a nice finish.

Absolutely beautiful powder. I use this almost daily, and the thing I love about it the most is that it camouflages fine lines. Many powders exaggerate dry skin, and this one doesn’t in the least. I love to use this after foundation and concealer, then I set everything with a setting spray (I’ve been loving the Caudalie beauty elixir!) and it creates a seamless, glowing look. I would recommend this to anyone, no matter your skin type. My only con, and it’s a small one, is that the packaging let’s powder fall out if you don’t open it just right, but that’s not a big deal considering how much I love this stuff!

Does this powder leave a white cast? Can it be used for baking? Is it matte or does it have specks of shimmer?

Does this have anything to stop the powder from spilling out?
