NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder, some people find it hard to use, some people find it quite good. And in my personal opinion, this NARS pressed powder can be regarded as the ceiling of makeup setting products, and its ability to fix makeup and oil control is very praiseworthy. So why are there two very different feedbacks on the same product? This post from Cosmeticskey takes you through what makes it special, how it should be used, and what kind of women it is suitable for.
The special features of NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder
There are two types of makeup pressed setting powders on the market: one is designed specifically for women with oily skin, and the main effect of the product is to set makeup and control oil, as well as create a matte makeup effect. If you look closely at this type of pressed setting powder, you can see that there are white powder particles on it. It uses these powder particles to absorb the oil on the face to achieve the effect of setting makeup and oil control, creating a matte makeup effect, but this type of product is usually heavier powder feel. The other type of makeup pressed setting powder is specifically designed for women with dry skin, and the main effect of the product is to set the makeup and moisturize and create a glossy makeup.
After a lot of research and personal testing, I found that the NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder is different from the two makeup setting powders mentioned above, in that it sets and controls oil while creating a shiny makeup. And this is mainly due to its silty and special craftsmanship.
The NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder is fine and firm, which is made by a unique process: the powder is finely milled and then baked and compacted so that the entire powder cake looks like it is covered with a transparent and colorless film, with hardly any powder particles visible. In this way, it has the effect of setting makeup and controlling oil, while avoiding obvious graininess on the makeup surface and fitting well with unevenness on the skin. The powder also has a slight fine shimmer in it, with slightly reflective particles under the flash, enabling it to create a nude glossy makeup.
How to use nars light reflecting pressed setting powder
I personally recommend using it with a black short-bristle brush because of its fine and firm powder. Because the short-bristle brush has a strong ability to pick up powder, especially for this kind of powder that is relatively compacted. On the other hand, the silty color of NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder tends to be transparent, so it is easier to see how much powder is taken with the black brush. You can also use it with a puff of the plush type. Dip a little on the puff and press it on your face.
The blogger has oily-combination skin. After using the NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder for 7 hours, my face is slightly oily in the t-zone. At this time, a layer of powder is covered, and the makeup looks very refreshing immediately, and there will be no heavy feeling of the second layer of powder. Even after repeated stacking, there is no powdery texture on the face. There is no streaking on some of the edges.
Applicability of NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder
I have been using it for a while and give the most honest product reviews. I personally feel that it is the ceiling of setting products because it doesn’t pick skin type, and it can be used on both dry and oily skin. Dry skin will not feel dry when using it, and oily skin can use it to achieve a good effect of oil control and makeup. Of course, based on each person’s functional requirements for the powder, so there will be women who are not suitable to use it.
Suitable for use: Women who like clear makeup and do not like obvious grainy makeup are recommended to use NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder.
Not suitable for use: Some women who require a pressed setting powder with concealing ability, or who use the powder as a highlighter at the same time, are not recommended to use it.
