I have been wanting to try these. The one from Nars looks like it would be amazing so thinking I will try it out.

Lots of colour can be a bad or a good thing for fair-skinned individuals. Your best bet would be to stick with a translucent or pink hued powder. Going crazy with colors will only make you look like you're dressing up for Halloween.

Everything old is new again. I remember as a little girl being absolutely fascinated to make the trek "downtown" (remember "downtowns"?) with my mother to the high-end department store (remember "high-end department stores"?), where she'd sit in her hat and white gloves and nifty little Evan Picone tweed suit while the stately matrons of the designer makeup counter (remember "designer makeup" for anyone except celebrities?) MIXED HER FACE POWDER FOR HER INDIVIDUALLY out of an arcane combo of, yes, all these weird lime greens and hot pinks and bilious yellows which somehow came out looking....PERFECT. ALWAYS. Today I am now in my mid-50s, the age that she was then, and when IO need face powder I sling on my yoga pants and message tee, grab whatever's mineral-based and oil-free at Walmart or Rite-Aid, throw it in the giant economy-sized cart, and scan through the self-checkout next to the harried urban mom with four screaming kids under six. Would I be completely out of line to opine that maybe, just maybe, something valuable to our sense of ourselves as ADULT WOMEN has been lost here...?

I absolutely love the idea of this. I have yet to try a colored powder although I do believe that it sounds like exactly what I need. I have oily skin so I typically like a powder to help control shine but then I have the problem with powder build up that tends to look cakey throughout the day. Love this. Must try!

I don't like the compacts that have a bunch of colors in them. It just seems like a gimmick.

This article is missing one very important point and that is, if you are very fair, be very light handed with colored face powder! I learned this the hard way and the Physician's Formula powder is probably your best bet as its very sheer. Now, for a warning on the Nars powder- it contains iron oxides in pretty high concentration and some have allergies to this ingredient (me!!!) and those who do may suffer some cystic like "acne", which will go away when you stop using the powder. Just an FYI!
