Today’s product is the NARS Pressed Finishing Powder! NARS is a company that doesn’t disappoint – they have a wide array of products and are up on the latest trends – but not shoving them in your face. NARS provides a nice blend of classy and stylish makeup. And they are cruelty free which is extremely important to me.
The NARS pressed finishing powder will set your makeup and add a luminous sheen to your face – giving it an airbrushed look. It lasts a long time and sets your makeup beautifully. Upon first glance this white powder may be intimidating to some (not me since I’m super pale haha) but it truly does melt into your makeup and lock it in with a gently glowy (not JLo glowy!) look so I’d recommend it no matter what your skin tone is. If your skin is dry it can look slightly cakey – but if you use a finishing spray as well that will help it settle into that no-makeup look.
The first few times I picked up this product I grabbed the loose version – I liked it but found it a wee bit messy (as loose powders can be!), then one time I went to pick some up and my local Sephora was out of the loose, so I picked up the pressed. At first I found the pressed a wee bit harder to work with, since I was used to the loose, but actually found myself re-buying the pressed on my last trip since it is a bit more convenient to work with. It’s easier to travel with as it comes in a smaller container, and is easy to use on-the-go if you need to.
NARS has a wide range of colored pressed powders to match your skin tone, and they are great products, but I prefer this white pressed finishing powder. I find it easier to work with and happier with the results on my skin.
