                                                                                                                Nars Laguna Bronzing powder £25

I've only every really used bronzer to contour as otherwise I'm never really sure where to put it and what to do with it, or even if it actually suits me at all - I've bought so many on a whim! Despite this, I gave in to Nars Laguna, which looked, perfectly, somewhere between Benefit's Hoola which is a little dirty on me, and Dallas, which I feel is a touch dark for me most of the time. I was hoping that Laguna might be a more daytime appropriate alternative, and honestly, it didn't let me down.

I personally love the silicone packaging, although it does get a grubby relatively quickly. I tend to clean my Nars products anyway to keep them as sleek as possible! I was a little hesitant to spend £25 on a bronzer that I might not like, but its actually so much bigger than the blushers so I'm certain this will last quite a while.
Laguna works well as a contour as the shimmer is very subtle once applied, but my favourite way to wear it is over the cheekbones where the golden shimmer adds an essence of glow. 
especially love this alongside a golden highlight and a touch of coral blusher on the apple of the cheeks!

Finally, I've found a bronzer that I can comfortably wear! All in all, this is definitely a product that lives up to the hype.


What are your favourite Nars products? I've never been let down by any of their products so far!Have you tried Nars Laguna? What do you think of it?

  6. This is a beautiful colour, although I have been put off by the price. I think I will end up buying one of these though as I have read great reviews

  10. oooh nice.youre right it looks lovely and glowy!(almost like a unicorn) My Nars involvement goes only as far as touching it in the shop lol.
    im not a fan/have a fear of shiny shimmery bronzers, probably cause ive seen too many people who put it all over their faces and look like coppery robots :| lol
    i do however use bourjois Delice de Poudre(the one that looks/smells like 4 squares of chocolate) all over my face and for contouring if im going out.its matte finish with the tiniest of golden sparkles (they call it 'glinst of real sunshine' on the packet haha).the colour is really good for pale skin, one light covering is plenty for a wee bit of colour.and it smells awesooooome! :D
