I'm a real sucker for sparkly makeup, from eyeshadows to highlighters and blushers when it comes to that little bit of sparkly you can't go wrong. For months i'd been eyeing up this sparkly powder at countless NARS counters but always left empty handed. After mentioning to my mum just before christmas I was lucky enough to find it under the tree this year. NARS is always a brand I love to look at but don't very often purchase due to the fact of the price and my poor student bank account.

When it comes to doing my makeup I like to set my contour with a translucent powder so i'm ruining any of the work I've just done. This is where the Light Reflecting Pressed Powder comes in, it enhances the look of my foundation and contour with distorting any of the colour  ensures the look stays perfect for as long as possible. The silky powder contains photochromic technology which diffused light and adjusts to different light throughout the day, meaning whether its bright sunshine or a cloudy dull day your face will still be glowing. It helps regulate shine throughout the day and keeps your makeup set up place.

Unfortunately you can't see the subtle sparkle in the pictures but it really is subtle and leaves your face with that glow you desire. My only issue with the product (like all NARS products) is the packaging, the matte black case is one of the hardest things to keep clean or clean once its dirty. I'm sure once you get one bit of makeup on its there forever. However, the case does some with a handy size mirror, perfect for on the go application.

Have any of you tried this product before?
