New Powder on the Block: NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder

NARS-light-reflecting-pressed-powderLike NARS’ Orgasm Blush, Guerlain’s Terracota Bronzer, and Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer, Chanel’s Natural Finish Loose Powder is a fixture in my beauty treasure chest.

While I can promise unmitigated fidelity to Chanel’s Natural Finish Loose Powder in the confines of my home, there’s no way in hell I can cart that tub around with me without (1) making a mess and (2) sporting a huge ass bag to make room for it.

So I have to stray when I’m out and about. And finally there’s new product that has caught my wandering eye.

It’s NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder. It’s pretty, it’s compact, and its perfect “NARSian” pedigree makes it irresistible.

And Femilady loves her some light reflecting/highlighter business. Here’s how NARS’ works:

This setting powder enhances the look of foundation without a trace of color, extending makeup wear thanks to the NARS exclusive Light Reflecting Complex™, which optimizes light-reflection on the skin. Its silky powder is infused with Photochromic Technology, which diffuses light and adjusts to new sources of light throughout the day.

One of my favorite things about this powder is that it’s for all skin colors & types. So no guessing or agonizing about it making you look like this or this.

Need 3 more reasons to check it out? Okay, take it away Sephora:

  1. …fine lines, wrinkles, and pores optically fade as skin is visibly smoothed.
  2. …revolutionary microfine mineral powders are loaded with glycerin and antioxidant vitamin E to help guard against dryness and keep skin comfortable all day.
  3. …paraben- and fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.

Icing on the cake is that it’s purse perfect in terms of size and consistency (pressed, not loose). Learn more–or snatch one up–at

And since it’s new, there aren’t many reviews to reference. But I tracked down this great one from complete with before and after pics.
