NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder

I'm a massive NARS fan so it pains me to write this post, but I've actually found a product of theirs that I don't like. I always rant and rave to friends about how NARS is the best make up brand out there, yet each time I fail to mention this powder I picked up a couple years ago and why I didn't get on with it. So the time's come for me to 'fess up and explain what I found so disappointing about the Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder.

You know when celebrities get caught with a white powder make up malfunction on the red carpet? (And no, I don't mean the Kate Moss kind.) Well, I feel like this might be the culprit. So this was my fault for not taking the 'light reflecting' part seriously - but don't ever be photographed with the flash on while wearing this. Think Casper the ghost's albino twin. It really is that shocking on camera and I was soon left in fear of bright lights whenever I wore it.

It would be one thing if this powder worked incredibly well so was maybe worth the sacrifice of looking like a cue ball in photos, but sadly it doesn't. I tried this out at a NARS concession before buying it and was immediately impressed - it made my skin extremely soft and smooth looking, plus it smelt faintly like cocoa. Within a couple hours, however, I was an oily, patchy mess. I've given this a good go (at £26.50 I really wanted my money's worth), but every time I've been left feeling disappointed. Although it makes my skin look and feel like a dream straight after applying, it doesn't seem to last longer than a couple of hours.

Sorry for such a negative post, but NARS is a pricey brand and I expect a lot from their products. Unfortunately this powder didn't seem to match up with my skin, but perhaps if you have drier skin it would work like a dream - provided you avoid having your photo taken in dark places. Have you tried their Light Reflecting Setting Powder? What's your favourite setting powder?
