In today’s post I wanted to review two of the three bronzers from NARS line. Only one that I do not have is Casino. This is not much of a one vs another post, it’s more of a comparison. These two bronzers are very different and I like them both a lot.
Size of a NARS bronzer compared to a size of a NARS blush:
When compared to Laguna’s popularity probably most of you never even heard of Irressistiblement. I never had either. And even when I was checking out new Nars stuff in sephora I would never pay attention to it. I had Laguna and I thought NARS could not make another great bronzer. I was wrong. Problem with Irresistiblement is that it looks CRAZY orange in the pan. If you only look at it or swatch it on your hand you will never buy it. You need to try it on your face to see how great it is.
I purchased it after reading couple of reviews :
NARS describes Irressistiblement as desert glow. It is somewhat of a terracotta color. Laguna is more of a golden brown and Irressistiblement is more red/orange brown.
To me it is completely matte with no shine , shimmer or anything close to it. But it gives nice warmth, especially if you are pale with warm skin tone. I apply it with either fan brush or with a big powder brush. It is very pigmented like any other NARS product and a little goes a long way. If you have light/medium skin tone and peachy, rosy brown blushes look good on you give this bronzer a try.
What is there to be said about Laguna that someone already has not? This is probably one of the most popular bronzers on the market. What makes it so special is that is so versatile and looks great on anyone -light to medium skin tones, either cool or warm. The only ones who could not benefit from it are girls with darker skin – I don’t think it would show up on them.
Laguna is described as diffused brown powder with golden shimmer.
Golden shimmer you can only see in the photos with the flash or when applied if direct light hits your face. Application is so easy and you can’t overdo it. It has very natural finish. Formulation is really smooth and blends nicely. It is great choice for someone who has light skin, has never used bronzer or does not feel comfortable applying it.
