Hands down the best bronzer I have ever used!!
I have had many struggles finding a good bronzer because I am so fair, and most of them are too dark, make me look dirty, orange or too glittery.
This is the first bronzer that make me look sun-kissed without appearing orange, glittery or dirty! I use it almost everyday and it just make my blue eyes pop :)
I also think it shows up nicely on photos, and doesn't contribute to oily skin but actually help you stay matt'ish with a healthy glow - It doesn't contribute to my acne either :)
I would recommend Laguna for all light - medium skin tones (no matter if you have pink or yellow undertones it still looks flattering) However I think it might be too light for people with darker complexions (and I would recommend NARS cali for them)
It is pricey, but I have used it everyday for 6 months (on my face and throat) and I can't even see the bottom yet!
Laguna + albatros = LOVE :D
Final verdict: I love it!
I have used this for years. It is a great bronzer for all skin tones. It does not look orange or shimmery, like most bronzers can. I use mine with Nars Orgasm. For the perfect sun kissed look. It is a very blendable color on my skin. The price is high. But NARS colors are so rich and pigmented that I think it is worth the money.
I use it for contour all the time except summertime, and i use it sometimes with Orgasm or MAC Sunbasque as blush. With both of them it look perfect, stays long under the radiant powder and gives such a wonderful healthy look for me as i have medium skintone. ıf you are looking for something shimmery it is not but for everyday looki think it is superb. continued >>
I use this as a contour, I bought it with the orgasm blush, and together it's like .... So POWERFULLY NICE !! It gives a natural glow to your face, and doesn't clog pores. Yeah some blushes and bronzers clog my pores sometimes. Will definitely buy it again
For me, I only use bronzer in the summer so it was a little expensive. Also, for the 4 months that I use it I went through 2 packages, which I thought was a lot seeing as I had the same blush for almost 2 years. Very expensive! But it does look great on. I'm very fair and the colour is beautiful.
Most bronzers make me orange, not this one. I have fair skin and can still use it heavily without it looking orange or unnatural. I wouldn't personally use this to contour although you could use it for that. I prefer instead to use it where I'd naturally tan (on my cheekbones/forehead/chin/ a bit on the nose). It does have a touch of shimmer but just looks radiant on the skin, you won't look like a disco ball.
I only have deluxe sample sizes of Laguna, which turns out to be a positive for me b/c I don't see any shimmer in these sample sizes. The color provides a beautiful natural contour for light-medium skin tones. It really does give you that 'glowy' look since it has the slightest sheen to it. It's buildable if you like to go heavy on the contour. The color doesn't look orange at all on me. continued >>
Very beautiful, did not make me look dirty or orange and gave a nice glow to my face. Looked natural.
This bronzer actually stumps me because I'm super torn about it. I know everybody rants and raves (and in all honesty it's probably the best I've tried) but I expected more?
It blends so nicely and works well as a contour
It has a light shimmer (love hate relationship with the shimmer)
The packaging is awesome, love the feel however I'm a nut about keeping it clean!
Has a generous sized mirror
Looks good all round on most skin colours
It hasn't lasted well at all for me, I've hit pan within 1 1/2 months (suspect fowl play with sisters)
The shimmer can be a real burden on a sunny day!
The packaging does get dirty quickly
Is difficult to afford if you have a lower end budget
Broke me out along my cheek bones slightly
Overall, great product, not overhyped just not as great as I expected!
Along with Soleil Tan De Chanel (Bronze Universal), this is my most-loved bronzer! No orange tint to it, just a brown with gold undertones that I don't have work hard at making it look natural on my NC25 skintone. The pigmentation is fantastic, I build it up slowly so I don't apply too much. I use it on my cheeks and then sweep it up onto my forehead and around the tip of my nose. It glides on my cheeks effortlessly, and has a slight shimmery sheen to it. It works so well with the yellowy undertones to my skin, for a natural sunkissed glow. Perfect! I do hate the pan though. In my experience NARS products shatter so easily, especially once you've hit pan, the whole product crumbles. Be very, very careful if you put this in your bag.
