NARS Soft velvet loose Powder: I got 99 issues however This Powder Ain’t One

The new NARS Soft velvet loose Powders ($36)
These days, my pores run the show. They drive the car. They’re the CEOs of my face, as well as every face-related product I use, from foundation to primer as well as powder, like the one I’m using here, new NARS Soft velvet loose Powder, has to keep the CEOs šťastný.

$36 NARS Soft velvet loose Powder
What is it exactly?

Honestly, it’s a loose powder. It does not exist to bring about world peace, however it will, however, set your foundation as well as concealer (and it does so without appearing thick or heavy), blur those pores (yea!), smooth the structure of your skin, as well as absorb that pesky oil patch in the middle of your forehead. You can wear everything by itself on bare skin, or on top of other products.

My skin always gets dry this time around of year, so this isn’t the very best time for me to evaluate an oil-controlling product, however I’m guessing that if I were in one of my oily skin phases, like when I might fry egg rolls with the grease on my forehead (throughout my teens as well as early 20s), this would have laid a good smack-down, although it most likely wouldn’t have gone house with the championship belt.

Before NARS Soft velvet loose Powder

The before shot: using NARS all the time luminous Weightless Foundation, however without powder.

And after NARS Soft velvet loose Powder in Beach

The after shot: now with powder. The shade I’m using is called Beach.
Swatches for the fair shades from the left: Snow as well as Flesh
Swatches for the medium shades: Desert (light increased undertones), Eden (yellow undertones) as well as beach (deep yellow undertones)
Deep shades: mountain (deep reddish-brown), warm (deepest true brown) as well as Valley (deepest neutral)
Now, please don’t tell the makeup police…but a great deal of the time I avoid powder, unless I understand I’m going to be taking pics.

It’s just one more step, as well as my skin has been so dry lately, so I haven’t felt like I needed the additional oil-control power. When I’m going to be taking pics, though, I do like to utilize it since it softens the whole deal with makeup impact as well as brings my bronzer, blush as well as highlighter together.

Soft Velvet, which, by the way, is not the name of a filthy prince tune (as far as I know), is completely individual friendly. NARS should have done something different with the sifter on the cap, since unlike many loose powders, this works great. When I utilize it I don’t end up with powder around the place.

To apply, I typically dip a huge fluffy clean (or a powder puff, or a smaller fluffy tapered eye brush, if I’m utilizing it to set concealer) into the jar, tap off the excess, then lightly dust that on my forehead, nose as well as cheeks.

It’s offered in eight shades ranging from fair to deep. look for Snow as well as Flesh for fair skin tones; Desert (light increased undertones), Eden (yellow undertones) as well as beach (deep yellow undertones) for medium skin tones; as well as mountain (a deep reddish brown), warm (a deep true brown) as well as Valley (a deep neutral) for darker skin tones.

NARS likewise offers one more loose powder, a translucent Light Reflecting loose setting Powder. It has a likewise silky formula that melts best into my skin, however if I had to select between it as well as Soft Velvet, I’d choose the latter. The translucent version looks excellent in genuine life (it has that wonderful skin softening quality), however it can be problematic in pics, particularly when there’s a flash up in the mix (I get that ghostly white cast).

I got 99 issues however this powder ain’t one, LOL! It beautifully sets foundation as well as concealer, looks natural as well as photos well. It’s getting a location best next to my present (and long term) loose powder love, Chanel Poudre Universelle (I wear shade 40 Dore in Chanel).

I believe both of them are great, however my NARS shade, Beach, is somewhat much more yellow than Chanel’s, which has a bit much more red.


I’ll most likely end up alternating between the two of them, depending upon what my skin’s doing on any type of provided day.
