The NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder & The Best Combo for Dry Under-Eyes

François must have really found a way to press fairy dust into a compact…

I’m telling you, guys, the NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder ($37) is magical!

It’s the first ever powder I’ve tried that doesn’t make my under-eye area look all dry and crepey. It sets my concealer while smoothing out fine lines and somehow remaining completely invisible…

It’s totally a kind of magic!

The greatest band of all time to celebrate the greatest powder of all time! 😉

The NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder comes in a classic rubberized NARS compact, the same size as the cult-favorite Laguna Bronzer

The NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder looks white in the compact but is translucent on the skin

This is like Ryan Gosling in powder form. It’s just…


But, you know, you can always improve even the things that are practically perfect (I mean, have you seen Ryan play the piano in La La Land?? *swoons*), so it would be beyond amazing if NARS ever released a yellow-toned – therefore even more brightening – version of this powder.

Yeah, a yellow-toned NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder to me would be the makeup equivalent to RyanGos playing the piano, LOL!

The Glossier Stretch Concealer in Medium, which I reviewed as part of the Glossier Phase 2 Set

If you have dry under-eyes and find that concealer and powder always make that worse, I totally recommend you try the extra-nourishing Glossier Stretch Concealer in combination with the NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder. In my experience it’s THE best product combo to keep your under-eye area looking fresh and smooth.


How are you today, my friends?

After a couple of very intense weeks (two weeks ago I was in Germany for training at my new company’s EU headquarters and this past weekend I worked at Cosmoprof, which was pretty exhausting), I’m enjoying a day off and it’s G L O R I O U S!

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are on this fine second day of spring! 🙂

    I do love NARS, it’s one of my favourite beauty brands that’s for sure. I haven’t tried this NARS powder before, but I have tried various other NARS powders and I’ve been a fan of all of them.

    Thanks for sharing Carol.

    A day off, amazing! No wonder you get all romanticised up and dream about Ryan Gosling playing the piano. Although I have to admit I am more into guys like Wolverine than into the Ryan Goslings of this world. But I guess I would be all over this powder!
