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.
I guess I have to say: Worth the hype!
-smooth, pigmented texture
-contains slight shimmer, but not visible on the skin; only makes it look glowy
-perfect colour; it just looks sunkissed
-the packaging is very nice with a big mirror
-prefer it over Hoola; in the same ranks as my Guerlain Bronzer
- I heard that it cracks easily
-of course, it is expensive and here in Germany not that easy to get your hands on.
I love this bronzer. It is the perfect color, not to orange, not to dark.
I have very yellow/olive skin so I have to be careful not to use too much or it looks unnatural but that goes with any other bronzer as well. I love bronzers but I'm also very picky about them because I find with my skintone they can look too brown/orange very easily. For most people however a nice brown tan is exactly what they want! Also this does have the slightest bit of shimmer in it. Very subtle and I didn't even notice it at first but some people may want to avoid that as it can accentuate imperfections.
