I've been using this for about 6 months (or so) and I've basically forsaken all other bronzers in my considerably large stash. This product is amazing and I'll most definitely need to buy more when I run out. It gives the most natural color and yet slightly luminous finish... Expensive? Yes. But is it worth it? YES! It's lasted for a long time and it's still going strong. LOVE it!!!
This Nars contour creme in Cap Vert has quickly become a permanant fixture in my professional makeup artist kit. The shade is almost universally flattering and versatile (with the exception of the deepest complections) and can be used on men and women in production projects. Goodbye to dirty ashy looking faces!!! Although the creme texture leaves an opague finish and is long lasting, using a HD powder to set it if the talent is under hot studio lights for lengthy shoots enhances its durability.
I bought this product just for contouring as I was looking for a cream product. I was not able to swatch it as its not available in store so after some research and looking at online swatches, I went ahead and purchased it. I'm really glad that I did as this product is perfect for contouring - its a really great shade for my nc30-35 skin tone. It also blends beautifully and can be sheered out or built up depending on your preference. I'm really pleased that I bought this as I was considering the Tom Ford shade and illuminate or the Hourglass bronze and illuminate. Both of these also seem like good products but I have enough highlighters and didn't want any more of those, so the Nars cap vert is perfect for those just looking for a matte cream bronzer for contouring or bronzing!
I recently purchased this bronzer and I am inlove!! I was super intimidated by the color because it's dark and reddish but it goes on like a dream! It's super costly at 45 dollars but I didn't need much so it will last a long time! It's also matte and and is an excellent contour :)
Lovely - no shimmer, creamy and gives the most believable glow. The perfect color for my NC20-25 skin. I use a kabuki brush to blend the color high on my cheekbones, lightly over my eyelids and sometimes I use a little on my lips but a nude lip-look. I looks really pretty with a pop of color over it like, MUFE Aqua cream in Fresh Pink. Very nice.
Great product. I was impressed by the creaminess of the product and NO shimmer. Just the type of bronzer I have been looking for. The price is steep, but is worth it.
I bought this product to replace my Stila bronzer (Shade 2) which is too dark (and a bit too orange) for me. I absolutely LOVE this color as it really gave me a healthy glow. I've received numerous comments from friends since i've been using this product. I just apply it with my fingers and it lasts all day, and this is something considering i leave the house at 8am for work and comes back at 7pm. This product will also last me a very long time as a little goes a long way.
The only down side about NARS products is the price. I'm in Australia, and they cost an absolute bomb!! Around $90 AUD!! I really don't know why they're so expensive here, esp when they're half the price in the US & UK. It simply does not justify the price for a bronzer. I've actually just been buying them online, or when i'm overseas.
If anyone knows where else to buy NARS at a cheaper price from Aus, please, please let me know!! continued >>
I use this for contouring. Basically I was looking for a cream equivalent of my MAC harmony blush. The colour is great, not impressed with the the packaging, I find that my brush does not pick up much of the product to apply, hence I have to use the tube directly to apply on my face. Because the tube has a relatively larger surface area than I like, I get more product on my face than I want for contouring (Also, I can get away with this because I use the product on me and not others- otherwise it is rather unhygenic).The colour lasts about 4-5 hours.The only thing I like abt it is that when first applied, your skin just looks dewy and glowy- probably due to the cream formulation. However, when I run out, I'll just stick to my MAC contour blush I think.
I feared this would be too light on me (NC30) but it's perfect. It doesn't give me a bronzed look as much as a light glow, which I'm really enjoying in winter. It goes on so smoothly, blends easily, looks natural and has impressive staying power considering most multiples haven't lasted long on me at all. With a light pink blush, this is a really healthy but subtle glowy look for winter. My favorite multiple ever.
I'm so glad I bought this. I was debating whether to get this or Tuomota. They are practically the exact same color. This one is just slightly darker. It can be used for contouring to give that mod or monochromatic look. It can also be used like a normal cream blush. The color is super flattering. It is totally matte, a warm muted light brown, sort of like the discontinued Puppy eyeshadow color from Stila. It emphasizes my tan and works with all different makeup looks. Will definitely repurchase!
