The best loose powder ever, to be honest have'nt tried lots so i cant compare. It goes on very light and feels like have'nt had any makeup on, which i loveee..tinted moisturizer + this powder and blush and i am good to go...Its not pricey atall considering the quantity, i will continue to buy this..EDIT - I could add 5 extra stars, i keep getting compliments..this is the best loose powder ever..hope they never ever discontinue this shade.

I bought this powder after thinking that MAC Blot wasn't doing the trick anymore...boy was I wrong! This NARS stuff is alright -- but it doesn't hold a candle to Blot! I thought this product was fairly cake, hard to make it look natural, and the giant sifter box is packaging insanity! For $33, I can buy 2 Blot compacts and have less mess! Would not repurchase.

AMAZING STUFF. I've definitely found my HG. It makes my skin look FLAWLESS and it doesn't even look like i'm wearing makeup. Totally worth the $33.

After seeing a NARS SA with gorgeous skin I found out she was wearing NARS Loose Powder. In fact she reapplied it in front of me and i was stunned at how beautiful this made her skin look. I bought Eden on the spot and now I have the same effect...great looking skin. I love this powder in every way. It is nothing and i mean nothing like other loose powders. It is more like a veil on the skin, like high definition. Somehow it seems to blur imperfections without any talcy cakiness with a finish that is every woman's dream. The packaging is less than perfect in that it spills and gets messy but problem solved transferring the product to a sifter jar. i still can't believe i paid 47 bucks for a face powder but dammit I'm worth it!!!

Just wanna thank every reviewers, now this is my HG. I'm fair skinned asian using Beach. Have been disappointed with other brands eg. Cliniques powder is way to pinky/peachy, Bobbi brown although it's yellow base but the powder particles are so fine that my face becomes oily in only few hours.I use puff for the application after Diorskin foundation and bobbi brown concealer under dark circles. With facial blotter once in the afternoon, my face remains bright until after work. Love Nars powder very very much.

if you haven't really played around with other loose powders, then you'll most likely take this one for granted. For me I started on drug store back in middle school/freshman year. after that my mother started to take me to clinque and estee lauder, and for the end of my high school days i swapped to laura mercier and trish mcevoy. now with more make up splurges under my belt, I am an avid fan of Nars, Laura Mercier and CHanel to name a few. But I never tried loose powder till Nars. It really does melt into skin, a fellow BEACHer. I was told to use desert, but the national nars MA said beach so of course I went with his reccomendation. I love male makeup artists, they get so excited during the whole process, and are just so lively and upbeat. Because I had gone to nothing to the best make up wise, I took this powder for granted. I believe nothing will hold back my shinyness, but this is the next best thing.theres TONS of product in this. and its sleek and modern packaging is nice, but with all loose powders it could be better. I roll the powder on with the puff as instructed, and then buff it off. I love this on my face and under my eyes with secret brightning powder from LM. i use this with SKII foundation, but want to try with LM or CHanel foudnation. will report back when i do.

EDIT: Cornsilk by Sally Hansen is way better. It doesn't cake, it lasts longer, and the color is perfectly translucent. it's WAYY cheaper too.Man, I love this stuff. I have it in Eden. It is very finely milled and it doesn't ever look cakey on me. There's also a TON of powder that comes with this, so the price of 33 bucks isn't bad at all. It lasted me about a month a half and I usually use up powder super fast for some weird reason. Also, makeup lasts INFINITELY with this stuff.

The SA picked Eden for me and it's way too dark for my light skin with yellow undertones. My face is now way darker than my neck. I hope I can still return it since I opened the box and removed the sticker already. It has a soft texture that is nice though. I wonder if Snow will work for me, but it looks so white in the jar.Also, it doesn't keep away oils enough for my oily skin. It also makes my skin feel hot when I wear it. Maybe I'm sensitive to talc. Still a good powder to try in my opinion though.

This is my new found HG loose powder in Beach! To begin I am MAC NW30 SFF, NC300 Hyper Real, EL Double Wear Ivory Beige, LM Moisturizing Foundation ~ Sunny Beige, LM TM ~ Sand :) I have always set my foundation w/ a powder of somesort, I feel a light dusting of a powder after foundation not only "sets" your foundation, but helps your other MU to stay in place. I have tried my fair share of powders which include: BE Mineral Veil, EL Double Wear powder, MAC loose blot, MAC pressed blot, MAC Mineralized~ Med, MAC Hyper Real Pressed, Guerlain Meteorites ~Beige Chic and countless other's I can't remember at the moment. They all seemed to work well,but to me there was something missing...that flawless airbrushed polished look. So one night I was reading the reviews for loose powder here on MUA and discovered NARS loose powder had an amazing 93% rating! I already use NARs blushes and love it, so I figured the loose powder would work just as well if not better. I went to Sephora and the SA matched me perfectly to BEACH, it literally melted into my skin...I was sold and forked over the $33 + tax for it. I am glad I did as the next morning, I did my usual routine: wash face, moisturize, primer, foundation, and then my NARS Beach powder. The powder itself comes in a squared black container w/a puff and a sifter, I don't like puffs so I put that aside and placed the sifter inside instead. I took my MAC 150 brush and dabbed it lightly into the container, I then turned the lid of the container upside down and swirled, tapped, and dusted the powder all over my face **remembering my BE days**...OMG, I could immediately see the difference with this powder than any of the other ones I have tried. Just like in Sephora, it melted into my skin, setting my foundation so perfectly, it literally looks like I was airbrushed! It doesn't look too powdery and it didn't settle into any fine lines I may have **35 yrs old ** I finshed off my MU and spritzed my MAC Fix+ and I was set for the day. It felt feathery light, not heavy and cakey, and it also felt like it has a mattifying property to it. I couldn't help but touch my face throughout the day :) Even though I do not have oily skin **occassionally my nose will shine** I looked matte and polished all day long. I did not need to touch-up anytime, and by the evening, it still looked fresh. I was worried that I might break-out with this powder as previously I had tried NARS primer, and it broke me out, but I've been using this powder for 3 weeks now,and no break-outs! I truly am amazed at how this powder works, and even though IMO the $33 is rather high, I would definitely purchase this again but probably won't need to as you do get alot of product for your $$! This is my new HG for loose powders! Yay!!
