NARS Pressed Powder - Product Review

My Skin Type

Oily and slightly sun-damaged

Description

Translucent, triple milled powder for a sheer and ultra-natural complexion. The light and airy texture helps set makeup with a smooth, sheer finish. Perfect for creating a naturally radiant look and for retouching.

Price & Size

AU$72

Pros

♥ Packaging is attractive
♥ Convenient size

Cons

♥ Poor coverage
♥ Doesn’t last
♥ Looks almost cakey (as it falls into pores/lines rather than gliding over them)

Would I buy it again?

No, definitely not. I was expecting great things from this powder (especially for the price) and was severely disappointed. I know the powder is translucent but it just did nothing for me. It created a cakey effect and accentuated my pores and wrinkles without providing any real coverage. I also found that after a few hours wear (if that) the powder seemed to have worn off.

If I were you I’d buy one of these powders instead..

♥ L'Oreal Mineral Finish Face Powder in Translucent Matte (AU$30)
♥ MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Face Powder (AU$47)
