Believe The Hype
I am one that is not easily impressed by bronzers, but bronzer did impress me. It is really compares to what people in the make up world have to say about it. This bronzer is not overly pigmented so it still looks natural on light to medium skin tone with out leaving your face looking dirty, or making it overtly obvious that you used bronzer. It is one of the only bronzers that I have found that would never make anyone's skin look orange. I personally don't use it to contour with, I prefer a darker contour color, but with some one who wants a natural look or who has fairer skin, it would defiantly work.
Lives up to the hype!
I have used this in my kit for years! My clients love this because it has just the right amount of pigment and shimmer. Nars hit the nail on the head with this one. Plus it looks great on a variety of light skintones. If you are meduim to dark Casino is the perfect color - check it out!
I use this to sculpt not to actually "bronze" my entire face. I usually avoid bronzers with shimmer like a plague because I dont usually like the way they look on my skin and also because it doesn't create a natural "shadow" for scuplting. Although this has a touch of shimmer it's pretty much undetectable and I can use it for sculpting. The shade is perfect for my skin! It's not too yellow that it looks fake tan-ish and it's not too cool that it looks dull. It's right in the middle.
Not going to lie I thought this was product was all hype until I got it in my little albatross, orgasm, laguna trio and I will definitely be repurchasing it since I use it every day.
Laguna is my current go-t-
I'll start off by saying, I love NARS products. While expensive, I feel they're worth it. Okay. now let's talk about this bronzer. In the shade Laguna, it's nearly perfect. With a touch of shimmer it brings the perfect glow to my face. I use it almost every day. In the shade Casino (which I have in the Danmari Palette,) it's pretty dark. I have medium skin and I have to use a VERY light hand. If you are darker then I am then this might be the shade for you.
MODERATION on very pale skin tones
I have this color because I bought the NARS Danmari all about Cheeks Palette and I have very pale white skin so its probably not the best shade for me but I used it anyways just to see what it would look like. I think the Laguna is more for my skin tone and it also has shimmer but I used Casino very lightly and it didnt look terrible.I combined it with my ELF Bronzer which I used on my entire face, and then I used the casino on my cheek bones. I didn't look out of place or anything because I remembered the KEY WORD moderation :)
I love this bronzer. I waited a long time on purchasing this and I am sooooo happy that I finally did. I use Chanel sole de tan bronzer faithfully and this can be a dupe for it. I love that is has a gold sheen to it. It is not over the top with shimmer either. Of course NARS packaging is amazing. and you get a good amount of product. I highly recommend this bronzer. my new found favorite : )
I love Nar's bronzer in Irresistiblement. I don't really use it as a bronzer but rather as a blush color. I love this color just because it is the perfect peach that looks so amazing on my skin tone ! I hit pan on this product and after a short while of hitting pan the whole think cracked and is now sitting in its compact in a million pieces, which you can imagine makes it a lot messier to apply. But I am going to continue using it because there is a lot of product in there !
