NARS Laguna Bronzer
Bronzer is sort of my 'should I? shouldn't I?' product. I'm so fair skinned that bronzer seems really scary. I only own one bronzer and it took alot of swatching, dithering and worrying to finally commit to buying. That bronzer is indeed Laguna (it would be a bit of an odd review if it wasn't).This is the second laguna palette that I have owned. The first was a duo with the Orgasm Blusher, has lasted about seven months and there is about a quater of the pan left- pretty long lasting I think.
What is brilliant about the laguna bronzer is that it is a lovely and warm shade, with a slight gold shimmer to it. This makes it perfect for paler skinned girls as it blends in so easily and creates a natural sun kissed effect. Like all NARS products it is highly pigmented, making a little go a long way.
I tend to use it on my cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin... so basically all over my face. I tend to concentrate it on my cheeks and just sweep a dusting over my face and I use it every day. Personally, I think that it works the best when I pair it with the NARS Orgasm blusher, they have a similar golden glow and it definitely warms the skin.
Any Cons? Well, I find that NARS products in general are a bit too wide in the pan and too thin. They would benefit from being slightly deeper as I tend to hit the pan within a couple of months. Once I have hit the pan i'm then terrified of it shattering and don't take it out of the house- a bit annoying when bronzer is something that could do with a retouch throughout the day. I also don't think that this shade would work as nicely on those with darker skin tones as it is quite a delicate shade.
Do you use the laguna bronzer? What do you think of it?
Laguna retails for £25 and can be bought here .
