Reviews for Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder, Translucent, Pack of 1
People say Airspun is really similar to Nars.
AMAZING and NOT toxic!
Firstly, I want to address what some have commented that this is "toxic" because it includes talc. This is 100% not true. Talc is a naturally found clay mineral and in its NATURAL form is very harmful--hence the high risk of health issues in talc miners and construction workers who were exposed to asbestos. However, there are very strict guidelines for talc in beauty and skin products which force them to be completely refined from their natural form and free of any trace amounts of asbestos. For reference, I have oily to combo skin with redness, wear full coverage foundation and am very fair skinned. That being said, this is an amazing product and better than all high-end and drug store products I have tried! I was worried it would darken my foundation, but nope--it is translucent without giving any whiteness or flashback. However, as far as powder cosmetics go, especially matte products or setting powders you want talc over silica (it's common alternative) as silica is the ingredient that creates flashback due to its light-reflecting properties. The most popular and highest rated pressed/setting powders all have talc as the #1 ingredient ---- Talc as first ingredient: Coty Airspun, Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, KVD, Fenty Beauty, Huda, Too Faced, Givenchy, Becca Silica as first ingredient: NARS, Make Up For Ever Mica as first ingredient: Hourglass, IT Cosmetics Corn Starch as first ingredient: Bareminerals I have tried all but one of the powders listed, and can tell ...

It smells like your grandmas perfume vanity..but..
Wore it for a few hours to set my NARS foundation down around the areas of my face that weren’t my t-zone, it held up pretty well on a 93 degree night. But that smell is horrible, it goes away eventually, but tapping out powder onto the lid to use to set the rest of your face is nauseating. Please, get rid of the smell, you have a good product on your hands, you don’t need that perfumey smell. I’m giving this one star lower because this is a VERY good option, but it doesn’t need to have that strong of a smell
Best powder ever
I NEVER write reviews, and buy from Amazon all the time. This powder is the best I've ever tried for creating a matte look and setting your foundation. I'd have given it 5 stars, but the only downer is that you do have to re-apply after several hours, but I'll never buy the expensive Two Faced, Nars, or Lancome powders again!

This is a great product! I have used Airspun before and it's my holy grail loose powder next to: Ben Nye, Nars and Laura Mercier. I will say that I did get different packaging, instead of the new one I got the old slide off cardboard one with no logo on top, which made me suspicious of where the seller gets their powders. Other than that, I love this powder. Would definitely recommend!
Amazing product but could come in a screw top and better applicator unbeatable for the prize
I actually do love the product but the applicator I'm not a fan of, i have a bakuki brush and it goes on seamlessly , I dont have to reapply. i am very oily and my makeup tends to shine after about an hour in 100 degree weather this had made my makeup look flawless . i do use Nars foundation and primer.
