Now i want the power instead... Le sigh"forgot until we glanced in the mirror and noticed how pretty our skin looked!" - quoting the ladies in the above link. I think that sentence captures how this powder makes you feel. It did me. Look how pretty my SKIN looks. They're exactly right. I am so glad that Sephora made the mistake they did, just so I could own both loose & pressed powders.
In the reviews available so far, they all say it photographs well, without the dreaded white cast. But to be on the safe side, better wait for a couple more reviews just to be sure.How does this compare to MUFE HD powder? Do you get the white cast?
No, no white cast at all! And, I even tried a spot where I piled it on just to see what happened & still no white out Just blurred smooth appearance. Not sure if that is how it will work for everyone, but that is how it was for me.How does this compare to MUFE HD powder? Do you get the white cast?
Nice bag!I'm starting to rethink buying this powder now. I wonder how much light reflecting it can actually do on my dark skin. Like I said before, I have several powders already and now, I have a Rebecca Minkoff bag in my sights that I need to save for.
The fluffy brush was my problem. I was using the Mac powder brush and, to me it's not suitable for loose powder. I started using the MUFE HD buffer brush which is soft, but packed. I pressed the powder on instead of just fluffing it on there. That solved the problem. Now, I use a Real Techniques powder brush and it's absolutely perfect. Soft, huge and it has a long handle which the MUFE brush didn't. That brush was stumpy and it was made of wood or something so, over time, it cracked. I went to Sephora yesterday and noticed they upgraded by changing the handle to metal(? I don't know what these damn materials are, but it's more stable). I prefer long handles, but MUFE is my favorite brand, so I'll probably buy it anyway. The point of all this is, A tightly packed brush is the way to go.What did you do wrong shontay? I haven't used a setting powder for ages, so I just would dust it all over with a fluffy brush?
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.Nice bag! I don't think that will happen with this powder, but check it out in person if you can first.

:kiss::thud: Your 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 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.
Tell me about it!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.
cool!! thank you!Sorry peeps, just getting around to coming here. And, I can't use the thank button as it says I am over my limit of rating content ???No clue what is up with that.
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.
My skin is dry/dry normal especially in this cold. It seems fine with dry skin areas.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.)
