I bought this loose powder in a whim; wasn’t really supposed to get it but the Sales Attendant in the NARS counter in Hong Kong said that I’ll qualify for their ongoing promo if I purchase two products for the complexion (I intended to buy the Sheer Glow foundation only). I was supposed to get a free 15 ml NARS Tinted Moisturizer only to find out that she placed only a measly 5 ml sample in my shopping bag. I was annoyed at that for a good month, until I got a full sized one.
Anyway, I’m glad I got this loose powder in Eden because I’ve been using it daily ever since! My setting powder used to be MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Dark. That powder made my makeup thick and my skin oily in four hours, but I kept using it anyway. I didn’t look back ever since I started using NARS loose powder.
After my HG foundation Neutrogena, here comes Clinique Stay-matte liquid foundation, another perfect foundation for oily-skinned girls that is neither heavy nor drying. My shade: 08 – Golden Neutral. For reference: MAC NC35-NC40, Medium Dark
This is definitely the liquid foundation that works for me. My first liquid foundie was Revlon’s ColorStay but didn’t like it very much because it was so thick and it stays on my skin like concrete. Those attributes are a must for others but not for me as I hate having to scrub my face at the end of the day just to remove it. It does offer perfect coverage and doesn’t cause oiliness, I just hated the chemicals that makes it stick like glue.
