So im a tad late on the bandwagon again.. opsie… but I’ve only recently bought my first ever Nars product.. EEEK i feel like i should be slapped on the wrist, bow my head in my hands and keep it there or get a round of applause or something?
I decided to opt for the Nars Laguna bronzer as it has been talked about in the beauty world for like ever, It’s definitely a product which when i ask – ‘Whats your must have beauty product?’, ‘What are you loving this week?’ ‘Your holy grail product?’…  this little name always crops up.. so i couldn’t resist it any longer i had to make it mine.
Since buying I’ve never ever looked back, this product is truly amazing! first of all the packaging is so luxurious for the first couple of hours with it arriving in the post.. i found myself sitting and stroking/ opening and closing the very expensive feeling packaging! and playing with the little plastic Nars protector .. does that make me a little odd? it comes with a big compact mirror so if your ever brave enough to take it on an outing you have a nice big handy mirror in there too! The only thing i don’t like about the packaging is how everything tends to stick to it making it rather dirty looking, but that’s something i can look past and I’m willing to forgive.
When i first opened it and peeked into the bronzer for the first time i was a little scared at how dark it appeared, but i thought no, don’t judge until you’ve given it ago, so i did and i instantly fell in love, it wasn’t at all as dark as it appeared it just gave my skin a nice healthy glow with a nice subtle bronzed shimmer! Let’s face it no girl likes the oompa loompa look, but this bronzer is by no means going to look in anyway orange, it just gives just a nice warm glowy look. The Nars Laguna is actually quite a matte bronzer but because of the subtle shimmer which it gives off this makes it perfect for contouring. This bronzer is now apart of my everyday makeup routine and i don’t think i will be looking to change it anytime soon.
Overall i love this bronzer, it is the perfect balance between a matte and shimmer for a bronzer it just gives my face that extra oomph and something which my other bronzers never really have, i haven’t really tried using it for contouring yet as I’m still trying to master the art (I’m not all that great) but I’m pretty certain it will work fab for it when i can finally master it. The only downfall is how expensive it is for bronzer, £26.00 but i think for how it warms up my skin tone, and how healthy it makes me look i  can forgive the price and i will be repurchasing this when i do finally run out.
Have you tried the Nars Laguna? Do you love it too :)
