I don't think that will happen with this powder, but check it out in person if you can first.

I just bought the Chloe bag of my dreams and I said I would never buy another bag again. Yeah, right! This one is so nice, though and it's on pre-order from Nordstroms. I gotta have it. It's a beautiful periwinkle color.

I know I'll end up with this powder at some point, but I don't really need it right now. Thank goodness Nars isn't into that limited edition/quantity nonsense.

thud.gifYour bag sounds lovely! Yeah, one bag never works. You can wait on the powder for sure. It will always be around. Getting a new bag is always wonderful.

 

Besides, you have such nice skin, you prolly don't need the powder anyhow.

It's funny, because I've noticed that I ALWAYS go back for seconds or even thirds on Nars collections and I probably end up buying way more than I would otherwise because I have that extra time to think about it. I'm very happy about that too, because a couple of my favourite lipsticks- Pago Pago and Bilbao- ended up coming home with me that way. I seriously think I swatched and tried Pago Pago on three or four times, then I tried it in a store that had natural light and was blown away by how much it brightened my whole face. I had enough of a gut feeling about it to know there was some reason to keep swatching it, but if it had been super-limited, I wouldn't have committed based on how it looked to me at first. 

 

I saw the Nars powders at Sephora today. They were in a display, but not in the regular Nars section. The pressed powder is bigger than I expected for some reason. Definitely thinking I want this, but I'll probably wait until the summer when I want something lighter than my usual Dior powder.

Yes, this powder is definitely worth looking into. If you end up loving loving the powder, I think it would be nice to have the pressed in your purse or for traveling. If you put it on & then stand back & look in the mirror, I think you should see a difference. I only did one side of my face so I could compare.

 

I used the powder on bare skin first to see how it would make my skin look. Then I wanted to see if it muted/changed the color of the blushes so I used those over the powder. I felt that it made a fantastic smooth flawless canvas. You could always do a dusting over the MU then.

cool!!  thank you!

I really want this powder, the loose one. How do people with very dry skin like it?

 

(And I want the Hourglass one as well.)

My skin is dry/dry normal especially in this cold. It seems fine with dry skin areas.

This powder sounds amazing! I won't pick it up right away, as I'm still using my MAC Marilyn powder for that kind of glow, but I probably will when I finish this one. I'm coming around to buying more NARS products. They do make my favorite highlighter- Albatross.

Thanks. I just tried to order it, since I found a discount code. It worked at first, but when I loggd in it was removed from my cart. blah.gif I'll wait for another code. sigh.gif

Definitely getting the loose version. Can't wait!!

post #105 of 482
Ive always been in search of a good setting powder. I have the sample size mufe one. I like it, but it's just cause I'm pale so the whiteness doesn't look so bad. This one sounds so much better though! How it's it with redness? I got it around my nose and checks. I vowed to have a no buy till April after Archies, so I'll pick this up later:)

Oh no!  It has algae in it...that's so highly comedogenic that I might have to pass on this magical powder.  Although since it's a finishing powder and not a skincare product it might be ok.  Do you think I could get a sample at Sephora?

In the comments she adds that it also controls oil.

My Kaspersky didn't detect anything. For those who don't want to click, she says it's awesome, and more of a light diffusing than light reflecting powder.

post #110 of 482

I went on Sephora.com yesterday and somehow ended up with both the pressed and the loose in my cart, along with Diorshow Maximizer.  Apparently I was in the mood for things that are white.  :)

 

I'm super excited for the powder.  I plan to keep the loose version with my vanity, and the pressed in my purse.  I've yet to find a good setting powder - I love the look in the MUFE HD in real life, but on camera it's really unfortunate.  I am practically tranparent I'm so pale, so I don't need any extra help with looking ghost white in photographs.  

 

I'll try to update once I've given them a try!

Thank you for this. She said she noticed a difference once she used a buffing brush so i want to try this over my mac face and body foundation to see. Hopefully there will be no need to get the loose version if i end up getting this to work

I am transparent as well - we call it jellyfish skin lol.gif

 

I posted this in the archie thread, but I used this today brushed on quickly over blush/my whole face & under my eyes & then looked at it in the car mirror in daylight & I could not believe how flawless & beautiful my skin looked. I'm in love with this powder!!

I didn't know about this expression, so accurate! girlhaha.gif Count me in as another jellyfish. :P

I read somewhere that they recommend using the Botan Brush to apply the loose powder because of the shape and bristle density.

post #114 of 482

I bought the pressed powder yesterday and love love love it!  I am over 40 and have fine lines around my eyes but oily skin otherwise.  I set my concealer with La Mer powder but for on the go I have been using MSFN.  I tried this in the store and at first I wasn't wowed but decided to give it a go and when I got outside to my car I couldn't believe it!  It literally photoshops out my fine lines and pores...after I finish La Mer (it will take me a long time) I have no doubt I will buy the loose version of this.  I think this will become hg for me along with GA Master Corrector...one of a kind products I can not find a dupe for and can't live without. heart.gif

post #115 of 482

Okay, I'm thinking of heading out NOW and buying this powder! lol

 

Is it better to use it all over the face or just on certain areas of the face?

post #116 of 482

does anyone know if this product will give the "ghost face" look like some other finishing powders? (MUFE HD i'm looking at you)

In the reviews available so far, they all say it photographs well, without the dreaded white cast.

You can check the links that were posted here, there are before and after pictures, and full reviews. ;)

However you like. But, it does work under the eyes without emphasizing lines! I used it all over
