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.
Adds a beautiful glow
I am New Guinea in Nars Sheer Glow, or MAC NW45. so on sight, I was a little skeptical that the bronzer would not show up on me. After wearing it for a few days I started to notice a significant difference. My skin had dimension that it didn't before and the refined shimmer in the bronzer gives your skin a glow that is so natural. LOVE THIS STUFF!!!
i love this color especially that im tanned already it contours my face perfectly. laguna was just too light for my skin tone and i would buy this product over and over again!
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 don't normally wear bronzer but once I purchased this, I dont go a day without it. It doesn't make me look orange or muddy and has a slight amount amount of shimmer that doesn't make me look greasy. I have the shade Casino since I'm darker complected but in the winter time I will purchase Laguna since I lighten up quite a bit. This is my favorite contour powder. No complaints!!
A little goes a long way.
I'm a bronzer junkie and have been sucked in by every new, pricey bronzer ever made. I used to use Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder (which has been rated the best bronzer for YEARS now) but I didn't feel there was anything TOO special about it for the price. I feel like this Nars bronzing powder is probably the best, most dense I have used. It leaves a really natural bronzed look that is not super sparkly (like so many other bronzers out there). I'll definitely be sticking with this bronzer for a while!
