wow !...Fav !...Glad Laura made one for dark skin girls!...So here's the issue, I'm dark skin and my face skin has an uneven tone (and for those who don't understand what I mean when I say this, it means that my complexion is two different shades in some areas) which makes it extremely difficult for me to find makeup that works for me so I'm usually mixing whatever foundations or powders I have to even my tone.
What it is:
A cult-favorite and award-winning, silky powder with a touch of sheer coverage to set makeup for lasting wear.

What it does:
Translucent Loose Setting Powder locks in makeup for long-lasting wear, without adding weight or texture. This bestseller creates a modern, matte finish with a touch of sheer coverage, while it absorbs oil and reduces shine all day. The pros know why it's their favorite: the powder is a little denser than an average powder, providing super smooth, even application and blending. This no-flashback formula means you'll look great in photos, and it creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur the look of fine lines and imperfections. It will not settle into fine lines or pores and never looks cakey. These truly translucent shades work on all skin tones—from the fairest to the deepest. The just-released, Translucent Medium Deep shade was designed to be completely translucent on medium-deep to the deepest skin tones, ensuring that every skin tone gets a perfectly flawless, translucent finish.

Translucent: perfect for fair to medium and tan skin tones.
Translucent Medium Deep: Ideal for medium-deep to the deepest skin tones.

What else you need to know:
Renowned Makeup Artist Laura Mercier uses Setting Powder to set foundation and prolong its wear, so she applies it after foundation and concealer, and before applying powder-based color. An added benefit: it helps powder blush or bronzer go on more evenly.

Find Your Perfect Powder: While makeup artists and beauty junkies select a powder based on texture, finish, and skin type, others may find it easiest to choose based on skin type alone.

This professional-quality powder is noncomedogenic, non-caking, and dermatologist tested.

Research results:
In a consumer test on 32 women after 2 weeks:
- 100% said it's the key to long-lasting makeup and ensures makeup lasts throughout the day
- 100% said it is lightweight and does not look cakey on skin
- 100% said it controls and reduces shine
- 97% said it absorbs excess oil

I LOVE...My fav...Great bronzer for tan/dark skin!...i wanted to love this product 1 because its nars and 2 because the color is absouletly beautiful; however its a bit to shimmery for me its not a bad shimmer, like you wont look like a disco ball or streetwalker, but because I have oily skin when it starts to wear off I just dont like how it looks anymore.

Finely milled powders fill in lines and pores for a smoother, more even-looking complexion with an undetectable finish. Each iconic shade has a rich, gold-infused brown undertone, which delivers soft, shimmering color—perfect for creating a sunkissed look, imparting a luminous glow, or for subtle contouring. The shades are ideal for all skin tones, and each offers a natural-looking, imperceptible finish.

What else you need to know:
Shades:
Laguna: A beauty editor favorite, this is the award-winning, iconic shimmering bronzer.
Casino: A diffused deep brown with golden shimmer, this shade is perfect for darker skin tones.

"Bronzing Powder makes the skin look healthy and glowing. I was very precise with the amount of shimmer—I wanted to create an effect that made you look radiant and natural."—François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics

"A little bronzing powder goes a very long way. Apply with a big brush. Keep the bronzing powder no more than one shade darker than your skintone. If it’s too dark, it can streak and look muddy. You’re not looking for a covering effect—just a hint of glow."—François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics

What it is:
A collection of six universally-flattering finishing powders that recreate the most flattering light.

What it does:
Create the perfect illumination for your face with Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Powder. Infused with the innovative Photoluminescent Technology, each finishing powder captures, diffuses, and softens the look of the skin. The micron-size, color-correcting particles refract light and create transparent coverage, filtering out harsh light and refining the appearance of the skin.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

What else you need to know:
“I learned early on how different types of light can truly flatter the complexion. Growing up, my mother had pink light bulbs in all of the lamps throughout the house. She loved pink light because it was the softest and most flattering, and she always wanted to look good. I used this concept of lighting in Ambient Lighting Powder.”—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder

Ambient® Lighting Powder comes in six shades:
Ethereal Light: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder that mimics a moonlit glow, even in broad daylight.
Diffused Light: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity like a soft ray of morning light.
Dim Light: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
Mood Light: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion.
Luminous Light: A champagne pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow—day or night.
Radiant Light: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.
