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 !
Laguna is holy grail worthy!
Laguna is my go to bronzer actually it is the bronzer I use everyday I use it mainly two ways - with my MAC 165 (pointed highlighting brush) to get that super contoured more going out type look or with my powder brush for an everyday glow. I love it because you can double it as a blush as well. I will never be without this bronzer!
