Luminous Powder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for added coverage. This is great when I want a little more coverage. This melts into the skin, doesn't sit on top of the skin like some other powders do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp finish I love his product to set my foundation and colour sits simultaneously on my Nars foundation however I went though it so quickly... not sure if that's a plus or a minus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful luminous finish One of my favourite powders that I use almost everyday. (I have just hit pan on my current one). I use this either by itself for an easy no make up look that offers the perfect amount coverage to even my skin tone or to set my foundation when I want extra coverage. I love the finish it's almost matte but not flat looking or powdery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it My first experience with this powder was not great at all, it would just slide off my skin and literally did nothing at all, until months later I decided to give it another shot as i realised after reading reviews that its best applied with a WET sponge or brush! Regret not realising this earlier as it gives my skin such a mattifying finish. Also medium coverage but very buildable which i like. I have combo skin with major oily T-zone and this really did help with my shine abit. For years i've been using mac studio fix (NC35) but this powder in the Punjab shade is a perfect match for me and will definitely continue using it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin saviour I purchased this foundation as I love Nars products and needed something for travelling to very humid and hot countries. I have very reactive skin and humidity is not my friend in this. Within 2 days of arriving I was experiencing the usual oiliness and breakouts (no makeup, just good sunscreen). After a few days I decided to see if this product could do everything they advertise and to my delight it was even better. Within 2 days of using with a dry sponge I had less breakouts and redness and now after 2 weeks, my skin looks and feels fantastic, even my boyfriend commented on how good my skin looks. I also used at home before leaving with a wet sponge and loved the look and coverage when applying this way too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new formulation that is finer and more gentle This new formulation is finer and less drying than its predecessor. The downside is it gives slightly less coverage and might need layering. Also some product falls out when the compact is opened. It feels very soft on your skin. The shades are tricky. It took me many tries before I settled on Vallauris/Barcelona after trying Deauville (too pale and too yellow) and Santa Fe (bit too dark and too yellow)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning Powder! I bought this a while ago and have just hit pan - it's definitely one of my favourite powders of all time! It gives the perfect amount of coverage and you can easily use it lightly to set foundation or apply it with a dense brush alone for a quick everyday look! It looks so gorgeous on the skin and does a great job at mattifying without making your skin look flat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get a professional colour match! I LOVE the formula for this foundation. It's so versatile, great that its buildable and isn't too dry or oily for my mixed skin. I just have yet to find the perfect colour for my olive skin, particularly because my skin changes so much in the sun! I love the formula so much that I just use bronzer to compensate. I recommend this compact, but consult with a staff to make sure you are buying the right colour!

I use the Santa Fe Sheer Glow Liquid and want a powder to go with it, I can't get to a store to get my color match. Would Santa Fe be the best to go with the liquid in the powder or should I go a shade lighter?

I'd like to use this powder as a setting powder over my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. If I'm the shade Vallauris in the sheer glow, would I be the same for this powder? 

Asked by: LianeS94

How would you describe the difference between the Sweden and Fiji shades? I've never seen the Sweden shade online before and was wondering how it compares. (I'm light-medium with yellow undertones, have used Nars Pressed Powder in Eden previously)

Asked by: SKY1

I have been waiting for Barcelona to be re-stocked for awhile, and have checked with Mecca stores they have nothing too! When will Barcelona be restocked? What is a similar shade that i can use in the mean time?
