I'm really pale, and this is the only bronzer that I've ever hit pan on. That should say something. Nars laguna is a beautiful gold tinted bronzer with neutral undertones, and a slight shimmer. I don't find that the shimmer translates to the skin though. This can be used for contouring, although something completely matte might be better. I really love how it compliments my skin. I usually brush it over my cheeks and my forehead and it makes me look so healthy and alive. Also, the texture is like none other. So smooth, so creamy. Not powdery or cakey at all. Just be careful to not over apply it. Because it is so smooth, it can make you look muddy if you are not careful. My only complaint is that when you hit pan, you have to be suuuuuuper careful with this. No putting it in a makeup bag, or anything where it can get slammed around, because it will shatter, and you will be left with nothing.
It's a good bronzer, it is not orange or muddy. I do find it slightly too dark for contouring on my winter pasty skin. Also not a huge fan of the shimmers in the bronzer. I thought it wouldn't contain any because so many people apparently use this to contour their face. Overall it's a pretty average bronzer but it's quite pricey.
I agree with many of the other reviews. It blends really nicely on my fair/cool undertone skin.
It's tough to find a contour color for fair skin that isn't too orange or dark. Nars Laguna is great - very natural, easy to blend, works well with my skintone.
I am not a fan of Nars packaging though. I can never travel with them - my nars blushes always end up cracked whenever I fly. (despite many efforts to protect/wrap/cushion them)
Will repurchase. (but the package is HUGE, so I am sure it will be years before I would need a new one!) A little pricey, but tons of product make it worth the price.
I'm fair skinned with a cool undertone. I find most bronzers either too dark, too orange, too shimmery or a combination of the three. However, this bronzer is none of those things. It looks natural on me. I can swipe it on the edges of my face for contour or over my high points to look like I've had a little color. I don't even buy other bronzers anymore. There's no reason to when this is all I need.
I have swatched this on my hand numerous times and was never blown away. That being said however, it is a whole different story on your face. It's not muddy at all (like I expected it to be), it blends beautifully and looks natural. I now know why this bronzer is so widely loved. I have a mini version that came in a sample kit from Sephora, but I will probably purchase the regular size when I run out.
This bronzer is amazing. I never cared for bronzer much before i bought this one and now I contour my cheekbones with this almost everyday. The colour gives a glow to the skin without looking orange. The packaging is lovely, the mirror in the compact comes in really handy, the case does get dirty which is why I've taken a lippy away. I'm just repeating what everyone else has said about this product now, I will buy this again because it's amazing. Only downside is the price, but totally worth it, I've had mine for 6 months now and I haven't hit pan yet.
Only bronzer I use and will always use this! Amazing product! Perfect for my fair skin tone! :-) I use under my cheek bones and also to bring a little warmth to my face! NO orange look, very natural! No shimmer! Perfect!
It works nicely for shading of my jaw line. It comes with a little shimmer but its not noticeable once I blend it out. However, this shade is too dark for nose shading, and the golden shimmer makes my face look tan and bronzey hence I do not like to use it on my face besides the jaw line. This compact can lasts me such a long time, I don;t see myself needing to buying it again in near future.
Absolutely love this product! Its the perfect colour for my skin tone, and it only has a few shimmers in it. I don't like products with a lot of shimmer. Unfortunately its quite expensive, but I have real trouble finding a decent bronzer so I didn't mind, and its going to last a while!
THIS IS MY HG BRONZER. I love love love loooove this! If you dont already have it, you have to buy this!
