I've found it hard to find a bronzer that's dark enough for bronzing and contouring as most have made me look washed out, too light or orange/red Oompa Loompa looking. Nars Casino has been my HG for bronzers. It's matte and natural enough for contouring and gives me 'bronzed' color without looking too over the top. In Australia it's hard to find and over priced so I've been using a dupe that's cost effective.
This is by far my favorite bronzer to contour with, it blends beautifully and has amazing buildability. I prefer it to any contour powder I've used. This was the first product from NARS I tried and immediately after first use I ordered Albatross. The brand is amazing and definitely worth the buy. It doesn't look cakey or settle into creases and it lasts all day. I like using it in my crease to give my eyes very subtle definition
Green based bronzer that goes lovely on all skin colors without looking orange or muddy!
I love how it starts off as a soft shade rather than a clump of powder like a lot of other bronzers I've tried - but can also be built up for the ultimate contouring !
I also put Laguna in my eyebrows for a softer, more natural look. I also use this as a transition color in a lot of makeup looks I do :)
Holds a lot of product + the packaging is so slim and not a pain to put in your makeup bag
you really cant go wrong with this product??
I've heard so much about the NARS Laguna bronzer and when I gave it a shot, I definitely wasn't disappointed but I certainly wasn't too in love. It gives a great contour for subtlety but doesn't really deliver on sun-kissed for my skin tone. I want to try other shades soon because I definitely adored how long lasting it was with the rest of makeup though.
Once again, another NARS Makeup Wardrobe Staple. As if the it doesn't already speak for itself being the #1 selling bronzer in the world, I am going to sing it's praises too. I use this on my brows, my eyes, as bronzer, I layer it with cooler blushes to warm them up, and I even once brushed a bit into my hair after getting a little over enthusiastic with the argan oil :s
Seriously I love this product and have for at least 10 years now. You absolutely MUST try this. You'll be glad you did.
Beautiful Product but a bit pricey.
If you're like me... a pale skinned Canadain... then you probably LOVE your bronzer. I've purchased Laguna quite a few times... but never buy it twice in a row. I find it quite expensive and it crumbles quite easily. It also has a bit too much shimmer for my liking. However the application of the product is flawless... and it sits well with literally every type of foundation
