NARS Laguna Bronzing Powder

Nars' Bronzing Powder in laguna has been a long time favourite for those in the know in the world of cosmetics and is now considered a 'cult' product. With summer on its way, I was keen to ditch the blush and rekindle my love with bronzer. After trying out a few bronzers, I decided to go with Laguna.
The difference between this bronzer and many others before it is its very natural colour. It is a brown based bronzer, delivering terrifically tanned skin compared to other orange based bronzers. Nars says "Diffused powders with golden shimmer create an all-over warmth or contour for the face perfect for creating or enhancing the look of tanned skin."

As someone with pale skin who nevers achieves a natural tan and forgoes the fake tan, I was worried that this bronzer would be startling obvious or 16 year old girl applying makeup four shades too dark with a trowel-esque. It turns out my concerns were completely unfounded! The healthy, tanned glow looks au naturale on pale skin as well.

Nars' Bronzing Powder retails for $55AUD. You can buy this product from Nars' Online Store, from Mecca stores across the country of from Mecca's Online Store.

I rate this product ★★★★★ - I can't find any faults with it at all so far.
Value for money is $$$$. It's a lot more expensive than any bronzer you could pick up from a chemist or supermarket, but the quality is infinitely better. However, if you are on a very tight budget, I probably wouldn't recommend it as your one splurge item.

Have you tried Nars' Bronzing Powder in laguna or any other shade? Let me know what you think.
