LOVE this product. I tried and returned about 5 different bronzers before this one. I'm NC30 in the winter and get really tan in the summer and this works for both.
I was looking for the perfect bronzer, not too orange not too red, and I hate the cakey ew shes wearing make up look. I was using a Mac bronzer but it looked unatural in the winter months. This one is perfect. You can put it on light or layer it for a darker look. Makes me look like I have a natural glow. LOVE IT. I will never switch bronzers again. I was worried about the glitter in it, but once it's on you can't tell it has glitter at all.
nice bronzer. works well to contour my nc 20 complexion. nothing spectacular on me. not the biggest bronzer gal but this has worked well for me so far. i received this in a sephora set but i won't buy the fullsize. like, but don't love it.
HG for now. I feel like I could probably find something very similar for a lot cheaper, though. It is the best bronzer I have found so far for pale skin (I'm about an nw15). It is a tiny bit orangey, & a little goes a long way with this, so be careful not to overdo it. It is pretty pigmented and not the easiest to blend, but not horrible to blend either. Just kinda meh. The shimmer does not seem to show at all once applied, which is great (I use it for contouring cheeks). It gives a very glowy look. $34 is expensive for what it is, but it will last a LONG time since its so pigmented. It can also be used as an eyeshadow, so a nice multiuse product. continued >>
So i just bought this bronzer after several raves, and i LOVE it. Im an nw 20 from mac and this is very flattering. I dont know if it is good for sensitive skin since i just got it. Also this type of packaging does tend to get dirty easily, and cost 44 dollars after tax here in canada, but definetly worth the investment.

This is the first NARS product I've ever purchased. VeronikasBlushing's often raved about this bronzer, so I was eager to try it.
I dust it around my hairline, jaw and cheeks. I'm medium-toned and this bronzer looks awesome on. (I'm sure it works well with other skin tones, too!) Sometimes I think it looks too dark (depending on whether it's cooler or warmer out), but in pictures I look really good!
Something to note is that this bronzer is semi-matte, but it definitely has some shimmer to it (I have very, very yellow undertones, so I think the gold-like shimmer complements my skin). I don't think it's enough to deter someone from purchasing it (as it's such a lovely color to suit most skin tones). I can see it in person, but not so well in photos.
- applies beautifully to suit most skin tones
- shimmer may be off-putting to some
This review will be quick - this product is so not for me. I love Nars, don't get me wrong. Nothing is wrong with the texture, pigmentation or colour of this bronzer. But it's bloody sparkly. For all the reviews that have called laguna matte or satin, that the shimmer doesn't really transfer to skin? Um no. It's sparkly. Very sparkly. Don't believe me? Put it on and go out in the sun with a mirror. I stopped wearing it the day I went out with a friend who was wearing laguna- we sat on a patio as the sun went down and her face shimmered and glistened like a disco ball. It was equal parts hilarious and horrifying. This bronzer is not for anyone over 25 in my opinion.
Best bronzer ever. It isn't orange, the shimmer is subtle and gives a perfect glow, and its great for people who have lighter skin. The only problem is a lot of people complain that once you hit pan on this product, it becomes really susceptible to shattering. It happened to me, and also my friend....such a sad sad day. So much product gets left after shattering that I can't condone buying a new one, but its just so hard to travel with and apply now :/
What can I say? Extremely good bronzer, I only need a small amount to look sun-kissed! Not orange at all and has a tiny amount of shimmer to it which I love. Expensive but worth it!!
I absolutely love this bronzer! Its perfect as a contour during the winter and to give me a little more colour. During the summer I use it all over my face after powder to give me a more sun kissed look as I don't tan my face. It makes my face look naturally tanned although I do have to be careful and not put on too much in case I look a little bit powdery. I haven't noticed any shimmer when I put it on although the bronzer does contain some in the pan. I have hit pan and haven't experienced any cracking of the bronzer so far. Definitely recommend this product to anyone.
I Love this Bronzer!!!!
I always thought that I can't wear bronzer because I'm very fair (NW10/15), but this convinced me! It looks so nice, just a little hint of a sunkissed flush. I totally recommend this to any pale girl looking for a nice bronzer.
