NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder


In the beginning of this year NARS featured two new setting powders .In fact the powders are the same but in different formulations. The first one is a loose powder, and then the pressed one came.
The pressed one is the one that I choose to try.

What the brand says:

A weightless, translucent powder for all skintones that creates a soft matte finish that looks luminous in any light.

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. Soft, silky and luxurious to the touch and undetectable on the skin, this weightless formula applies evenly and blends effortlessly. One of the best parts? Fine lines, wrinkles, and pores optically fade as skin is visibly smoothed. Additionally, revolutionary microfine mineral powders are loaded with glycerin and antioxidant vitamin E to help guard against dryness and keep skin comfortable all day. Ideal for touch-ups, it helps regulate shine throughout the day and seamlessly sets foundation. This product is paraben- and fragrance-free and non-comedogenic. 

The powder came in a special, velvet pouch where we can find a very thin applicator.

The powder look very white with some shimmer, but the shimmer is not noticeable when applied on the face. It  is truly soft and lightweight, as it claims, and very silky.
Skin looks so nice and smooth, with this gorgeous glow.
So far I feel like this powder does everything it claims to do. So far I love it! I can say it's the best setting powder I have ever tried, no lie!

Here are the products I bought from MAC two weeks ago.
I bought everything online and everything is from a permanent line.
-Pressed Pigment in Deeply Dashing-a beautiful dark brown color with lots of silver shimmer . Beautiful but lot of fall out.
-Pigment in Blonde's Gold- Light beige with gold pearl
-Brow Set in Beguile-my all time favorite brow product
-Clear Lipglass-this is my new favorite MAC product! It has high shine and lasts forever on the lips. It's very thick and pretty sticky, like most MAC's lip glosses but I actually like it, because I don't have to reapply the gloss all the time .
-Lipstick in Angel-a basic light, neutral pink
So that's my MAC haul. Everything I love but the pressed pigment which I like, but because of the fall out I don't think I'll be using this often.
