NARS Bord de plage is a limited-edition palette filled with highlighting and bronzing shades. Water-activated highlighters meet Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer for a smoldering summer look. Four opalescent tones work effortlessly with your skin to create a universal glow, while two light-diffusing bronzers add natural-looking warmth. Together they create a second-skin luster that amplifies and intensifies. Opposites attract with sheer dimension.
– Rivage – glistening pearl
– Corniche – soft pink shimmer
– Crique – pale gold Shimmer
– Galet – golden bronze shimmer
– Laguna – Medium 1
– Casino – Medium 2
NARS is killing it this year! So many great palettes , both for eyes and for the face , new blush shades like the one from Pop goes the easel collection… I am simply so impressed with NARS that every time they release new product I think “Ok this is the best so far” but with every new release they outdone themselves. I do not think I bought more stuff from any other brand than I did from NARS in the past 12 months or so. Can’t wait to see what is more to come from NARS (new liquid matte lipsticks, new stick foundation…)
NARS has definitely jumped on the extreme highlighting wagon first with Banc de Sable palette (reviewed HERE ) and now with the combination of highlighting and bronzing shades which of course include iconic Laguna (isn’t Laguna in every single palette already lol? ) although this time in the Sun wash diffusing formula – if you haven’t tried the full size already this might be a good idea to get instead just the bronzer.
Highlighters are the same quality and very similar color wise to the ones in Banc de Sable – do you need both? No. Also finish and texture wise they really remind me of recently released MAC Extra dimension highlighters (reviewed HERE and HERE ).
Bronzers – Laguna and Casino are not as smooth and pigmented as highlighters. Casino is good but Laguna is very dry stiff and with poor pigment – which might be ok if you are really pale or you are newbie with bronzer application – you simply can’t overdo it.
Overall this palette is a really good value for 59$ especially if you need it for travel or you do not already own Laguna/Casino in the new Sun wash diffusing formula and you do not have Banc de sable. Outside packaging was kind of odd to be honest with you I think NARS did some better designs before.
NARS Bord de palge retails for 59$ and is currently Nordstrom exclusive where I purchased mine . It sold out super fast but I would recommend keeping an eye on it might get restocked DIRECT LINK
