I had been looking for a bronzer to replace my old YSL one, and this was the closest match that I could find color-wise. I did buy this off the internet, but I was pleased with the color. It is a gorgeous terracotta color. It gives me (NC20) a nice natural glow (especially now that its winter) and i'm sure that in the summer it will look great with tanned skin. The only downside that I've found is that it is easy to go overboard with this as it is highly pigmented, so be sure to use a light hand. The price isn't too bad for the quality and quantity of product that you get. Considering that a little goes a long way, I'm sure that my pan will last me for a pretty long time. Overall, I think this is a great product and I will most likely buy this again.

Dear NARS,

You can discontinue laguna, but please do not discontinue this! This bronzer is amazing. My mu routine consists of: sunscreen, primer, bb cream, setting powder, blush, then bronzer. As some people on MUA know that bb cream can make your face a little more paler, thankfully I use a japanese bb cream that has yellow tone and is slightly more similar to my NC30 skintone, so I just throw on T. Leclerc's banane setting powder. This bronzer is perfect because it makes my makeup much more uniform. I bought the bronzer brush when I bought this at the same time. The brush is like a round kabuki, so it can buff out some foundation/powder. I use light strokes and I dip my brush into the bronzer twice, just to get an even coat. Then I take a blot powder and go on my t-zone with the MAC 134 brush. Then I use the 134 brush to blend the bronzer even more. Finally, its perfect! If you dip into the pan more than twice, you may go overboard as NARS is known for pigment payoff! As far as dupes, it is somewhat similar to MAC's smooth harmony, though this one has more red and is noticeable. Smooth Harmony is more of an orange and is foolproof for everyday so you don't know when you go overboard. A little goes a long way, I will have this bronzer for at least a year.

If you love bronzers, go out and buy this one today! Without a tan, I need some kind of color as my skin gets dull in the winter. I've tried many many bronzers from drugstore to Cargo, Tarte, UD and MAC. Let me just say, this is just stunning. The color is very unique. It is a beautiful mix of terra cotta and peach with no shimmer/sparkles. This bronzer creates a lovely natural sun-kissed glow that is suited for us fair-medium skinned girls. I get no orange or muddiness with this. I hope NARS keeps this color forever because I will always have this in my makeup bag. This bronzer is .28 oz and cost $32.00 at Sephora.
EDIT: Omg, why NARS why? I love this color bronzer to infinity. However, everytime I use this particular one, I get a reaction and my skin is covered in itchy red bumps. I'm not even sure if it's acne or hives because they take a week or so to completely vanish but they are extremely itchy :( So, I had to knock off 2 lippies for this bazaar reaction.

This is my favorite bronzer. Granted I have tried very few of them, but this is the perfect one for me and since finding it (when I went through a phase of needing to find "the perfect bronzer") I haven't felt the need to search for another one.

It's a matte bronzer, which I prefer because it's better for contouring the face which is generally how I apply bronzer. This way I add some color and give my face a more defined shape. I like this shade for light skin; I've never understood why people think Laguna is the best for fair skintones. It looks very dark to me. Irresisteblement is much lighter and has a warmer undertone, but never looks orange. I prefer applying it in a 3E shape on my face with a larger fluffy blush brush.

As all NARS products go, it's more on the expensive side but you get a good amount of product and it's very pigmented so it will take you a while to go through a pan. I also personally like the NARS packaging, so no complaints there.

I just bought this product on Friday and I've got to say this is my favorite bronzer ever!! I own the Casino and Laguna, and this bronzer does not compare. I do want to add that it's very similar to the blush Luster, minus the shimmer. I think it's a really pretty color, very peachy and can be worn alone without a blush to compliment it (my favorite part!). I went to Sephora that day to buy a palette but immediately fell in love with this bronzer so I had to get it! I can't really complain about the price, I'm a strong believer that you get what you pay for and when it comes to makeup high quality is my only choice :)

Terra Cotta is dead on when describing this bronzer. I never thought I liked a warm bronzer until I tried this. I still like my Laguna, but I reach for this matte shade half of the time. It gives my fair skin a warm, sunset glow. Excellent quality, not too powdery. If you are on the fence about this shade have an SA apply it on your skin-you may be surprised by the results.

Friggen amazing product :) I am a light-skinned golden undertoned gal (somewhere between NC25-NC30) and this product does wonders for my complexion in a pinch. Love Laguna for the summer when it's actually believable. This is THE perfect winter bronzer. Yes, it's expensive. But all NARS products are... and I've been using this since September and barely have any dip in it. Very pigmented. Very "glowy" effect without the glitter. This doesn't really bronze you.. this just makes you look healthy.. as another reviewer put it. Overall, so glad I took a chance on this (bought it off without testing it first)... and definitely recommend and would buy again. That means a lot coming from a very poor grad student :)

First off...I got Oily T-zone, Medium-Dark almost Tanned skin. Asian GUY :)

I was at Holt Renfrew today about to buy my Monsieur Bronzer for men by Jean Paul Gaultier when they suggested I try NARS. One thing I wouldn't go for when it comes to bronzers are glitters. As gay as I could get....there's still a limit when it comes to glitter! -_-

When I told the sales lady I wanted a MATTE FINISH...she suggested NARS...I've heard of their foundation before and I heard good stuff about I tried it. At first glance it has a bit of shimmer but ones put was just amazing. It was the perfect shade for my skin tone. It really did gave me that healthy look. When I have the foundation just looks too flat and too clean. But with the bronzer it gave my face depth.

But ya..NARS is amazing...the PACKAGE is slick! The color is BUILDABLE. And I will definitely buy it again! :)

I said yes to buying this product again because I've already bought it again mere weeks after purchasing my first pan - I love it THAT much!! Like other reviewers have noted, I'm fair and was previously using Laguna without a great deal of success. Laguna took alot of work to get right on my skin - it tended to look dirty otherwise. Irresistiblement is the perfect bronzer for me. I use it either all over or as a blush, swept over my cheekbones with just a hint down the bridge of my nose and it gives my pale complexion that gorgeous sun-kissed look. I've worn it every day since I purchased it 2 or 3 months ago and I adore it. I like that the shimmer in it is minimal - it's an easy, pretty, no-fuss bronzer. At $72AUD it's a little on the expensive side but a little does go a long way and since a good bronzer is a staple in my makeup bag I don't mind paying a little extra to get the right one!! For reference I'm blonde hair blue eyes NW20

I am so glad NARS came out with this. Being fair, Laguna (not to mention Casino!!) is too dark for me to use as anything other than a contour (even then only if I have a dusting of a lighter bronzer already on) or when I am fake tanned, so this is perfect. I suppose it still looks quite dark in the pan but a light dusting gives me a great peachy bronze colour that doesn't look dirty or detract from the natural glow of my skin. I would still prefer the NARS bronzers to have a little bit less shimmer as I think they'd look more natural without them but all in all, this is the best bronzer I've found thus far. Will be repurchasing as a staple unless something else amazing comes on the market before I use mine up!
