(11 customer reviews)


Light Reflecting Setting Powder locks your makeup in place with a weightless finish that is undetectable on skin. This luxurious, cult-favorite formula applies evenly, blends effortlessly, and enhances the look of foundation. Available in two shades, Crystal; Translucent, ideal for fair to medium skin tones; and Sunstone; ideal for medium-deep and deep skin tones with no white cast or flashback on skin.

This photo-friendly formula uses Photochromatic technology to adjust to new sources of light, so skin looks perfect on camera—and in person. NARS’ exclusive Light Reflecting Complex™ optimizes light reflection on the skin. It creates a soft-focus effect by optically fading fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. It helps regulate shine throughout the day, making it ideal for mid-day touch ups.

In addition to setting and perfecting your foundation, Light Reflecting Setting Powder can be used to set bold lip color, to seamlessly layer smoky eyeshadow, or even to soften an intense eye or cheek look.

    It is a nice powder. Contrary to other reviews it does not spill. There is a recessed top with small holes under the cap that prevents it (unless you don’t keep it upright). It also make using it easier since you can dispense a minute amount at a time. You don’t need to use much, which decreases the overall cost to the consumer. However, I don’t see anything special about the powder. I put it on and all the shadows and winkles show. I haven’t received any compliments, such as You look so rested.

    Best powder I’ve ever used. It prevents oily shine during the day but absolutely does not settle into lines and wrinkles. A little goes a long way and it does not irritate my skin. Yay!

    Best powder! I have a little bit of redness on my face and this powder is amazing at not only providing natural coverage but also lasting.

  5. Amazon Customer

    Powder is very fine, light and subtle. It serves the purpose very well and doesn’t settle in creases. Can be messy, but with care and precautions, it is perfect.

    I’ve used his NARS product for several years & love it as a setting product. I would highly recommend it.

    Ohhhhh how I have been waiting for this gem! It was well worth it. I have been looking for a setting powder that doesnt actually settle into my fine lines as well as not making my under eyes appear drier than they are. Nars fit the bill! Lightweight, easy to apply, does NOT cake.or settle into fine lines. It does what it claims, I’m now even more excited to try their radiant foundation that I have ordered. So glad I decided to try this product out, I only wish I would have tried this BEFORE I spent oodles on the other high end setting powders that did not live up to their claims! Will be my setting powder holy grail!

    I bought this because of the good reviews I’d seen elsewhere, and because I was searching for a replacement to the powder my beloved grandmother introduced me to. I have finally begun using this, after using up all the other powder my grandmother left me. I absolutely love this! It feels so light, so airy, and it has a wonderful soft touch. I know it’s expensive,but so far this has been worth it. I haven’t needed to apply it more than once per day. I currently live in the Pacific Northwest, but am planning a move to Florida later this year. I will be facing extreme humidity, and am looking forward to discovering if this will hold up as well in Florida as it has for me here, where there is almost no humidity.

    Love this stuff. It is invisible on…not white, and sets makeup beautifully. It feels like silk.
