Nars Laguna - swatches and review!

Hello lovelies.

Welcome back to my blog! Today I have a super-exciting post for you, my Nars Laguna bronzer. I've had this for about 2 weeks and have used it near enough every day to test it out. I am sure you have all heard the glowing reviews around this product, so this is just my view on the cult favourite.

Firstly, might I just say that Nars is impossible to find on the South Coast!? The other day I was visiting Brighton, and found out they had a Space NK so I visited in the hope of finding Nars. Lo and behold, there were the holy goods in all their fingerprint-trapping glory. Laguna is a large, brown bronzer with golden shimmer running throughout.

The colour is lovely, especially for pale people like me who find other bronzers lean very orange on them. This literally is the colour of my natural tan (I compared for around 10 minutes recently!) and the shimmer gives a natural 'glow' without emphasising my pores or making me look like a disco-ball.

At first I couldn't find the right brush to use with this, but I've gathered from other people's reviews that an angled contour is best. However, I don't own one so I made do with my RealTechniques blush brush which served me fine.

I quickly want to touch on the price and packaging of the product. The price at £25 for 8g is very steep for me, but honestly for the size and pigmentation I would say this is very much worth it. The packaging is a very love/hate thing, but I personally love how it looks and feels even if the matte rubber skin does attract a million and one fingerprints!

Overall, I would 100% recommend this product to any fair-medium skinned girl looking for a not orange, gorgeous bronzer. For a darker girl, Nars also do Casino bronzer.

You can buy Laguna from Space NK here

Thankyou for reading.

Edit: If any of you saw the title before I changed it saying 'Nars Hoola', I have not made a new product featuring both Nars and Benefit. I am simply ditzy! Thankyou to my friend Loise for helping me.x
