In case you missed it, Malaysian cosplayer Hakken made a special appearance at NARS’ launch event on 5 December 2023.

With a global fanbase, Hakken is one of the most popular cosplayers around, having garnered a massive following of 3.8 million on Instagram and close to a million on Twitter.

Their acclaim arises from their meticulous approach to cosplaying beloved anime and manga classics such as Howl’s Moving Castle, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Through their self-expression, Hakken has cultivated a dedicated community, embodying an attitude that aligns seamlessly with the ethos of NARS and the innovative concept store.

If you’re wondering how Hakken looks picture-perfect every time, we’ve got the answer for you. Their go-to NARS product is the Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder.

“I think I’m on my third one already. I just keep going back,” Hakken shared.

The formula ensures all-day makeup hold with a radiant finish. Its lightweight and easily blendable texture effortlessly sets foundation without altering colour or coverage.

Plus, it’s infused with NARS’ Light Reflecting Complex, which enhances light reflection on the skin, producing a soft-focus effect that optically diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, and pores.

The no-flashback formula incorporates Photochromic Technology, adapting to different light sources for a flawless look in person and on camera.

NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder retails for S$65 on Sephora.sg and at all NARS stores and counters in Singapore.
