Soft Velvet Loose Powder sets foundation, evens skin tone, controls oil, and smooths the texture of the skin. Built with the latest advances in artistry, it perfects any look for naturally polished, porcelain-looking skin.

An artistry essential, this lightweight powder brings a flawless, soft-focus finish to all complexions. Soft Velvet Loose Powder combines skincare ingredients to create a weightless, velvet-to-the-touch formula that keeps skin comfortable all day.

Hyaluronic Acid Bonded Powder creates a non-drying, comfortable finish. Fine lines, wrinkles, and pores optically fade as skin is visibly perfected. Photochromatic Technology keeps skin looking natural in any source of light.

  • For all skin types
    • Mineral Tone Balancing Powder works to optically correct, not mask, imperfections. Unique powders even skin tone and provide invisible skin correction so skin looks radiant, fresh and natural.
    • Photochromic Technology alters the tone of the complexion with the intensity of light, reducing that “washed out/chalky” appearance that can occur when makeup products are exposed to sunlight or flash photography. The result is a healthy, natural-looking complexion in any light.
    • A blend of Vitamins A, C and E delivers antioxidant benefits protecting the skin against harmful free radical damage.
How to use
  • Can be used alone, to set foundation and makeup or to soften color intensity on the face or eye.
  • An indispensable tool to create the NARS signature Smoky Eye: Use it to set the cream base and apply after each additional color to create a cloud-like effect.
  • With a Brush: Dip into powder then tap off excess. Apply to the face using circular motions starting in the center of the face and working outwards until blended.
  • With a Puff: Dip into powder then tap off excess. Apply by pressing and rolling the puff onto the skin.
  • If desired, finish by buffing skin with the #10 Powder Brush or the Ita Kabuki Brush.

Soft Velvet Loose Powder is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best loose powder Ever I absolutely love this powder. I’ve been using this for a few years now and just the other day I tried to purchase some from the department stores in London; only to find that they were out of stock. I panicked slightly as usually when that happens it means the brand has discontinued the product. Luckily that was not the case, managed to purchase some on the Selfridges website but was very low in stock. Please never ever discontinue this. Its amazing for my oily skin and gives it such a flawless finish. I always get complimented day in about how great my skin is and honestly it’s due to this powder. You can hardly tell I have anything on most of the time. The best best best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish! I bought this powder a few months ago. It’s been wonderful. It hydrates my dry skin and provides a luminous finish. It also provides a small amount of extra coverage on top of the Nars tinted moisturizer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring Back the old Loose Powder!!!! I really don't like this...miss the old loose powder. The packaging is horrible and there's no way to get the powder out. I'm going to look for another brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product-terrible packaging I love the finish this powder gives me but it takes forever to get it out of the tiny holes. Will probably try other brands if I get sick of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed. Bring back the old loose powder I've used Nars' loose powder in Eden for literally years and years... well before using loose powder was the trend that it is now. Then they discontinued their old, amazing loose powder that was perfection to THIS. The packaging is awful, with way less product included; the color of the product changed even tho the name stayed the same (eden), the formula changed, they no longer include the pouff that came with the old product... it's just a downgrade in EVERY way. I beg of you, Nars: being back the old loose powder. This is just such a poor substitute!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not control oil well or provide smooth finish When I use this on top of my NARS liquid foundation it just absorbs in and does not seem to set the foundation well. I still have a foundation sticky kind of face - and I even have dry skin to begin with. I am in a humid summer climate but my other loose powder is successful in providing a soft, smooth, oil control finish. In addition this NARS powder is a rather small container.
