I lost track of how many times I had read a review or watched a makeup tutorial and NARS Laguna bronzing powder was mentioned so...I finally caved and made my purchase. The bronzing powder comes in 3 shades, Laguna, Casino and Irrestiblement. I was quite surprised when I finally got my hands on it as it looked quite dark. However, most of the skin tones on the tutorials I had seen were quite pale like mine so I thought I would give it a whirl!
The bronzing powder is a diffused powder with a very subtle golden shimmer. It adds a lovely warmth to the skin and is a master at contouring the face.You only need to add a small amount to your brush, a little goes a long way. This is good news as it costs £25...but it will last you a long time (this was my justification to my shocked looking boyfriend anyway).
I use a Real Techniques contouring brush to apply the bronzer just under my cheekbones and a little on my temples and nose. This creates a nice warmth to your face as well as enhancing cheekbones and making your face look slimmer.
This is a fantastic bronzer that has been recommended so many times. I'm so pleased I finally have it. NARS say that this bronzer will suit all skin tones and I have to say I was completely wrong when I thought it may be too dark for me. Its just the right shade and most importantly I am no shade of ORANGE!
The very well groomed sales assistant in Space.NK did say this to me "the world will stop turning the day we don't have Laguna!"
So there you go, Laguna 3 gold stars for you!
Thanks for reading!
