NARS Laguna Liquid ($40/1 ounce) is a beautiful addition to your summer beauty routine. If you are new to liquid bronzers, you are in for a treat. Laguna works beautifully for a natural, no-streak, softly shimmering summer glow. The effect is so beautiful. As if Languna would get any better… and then it does.
This liquid is housed in an opaque bottle that’s got a controllable pump. I had no problems getting just the perfect amount out of the container without over-spill. This easy-to-use liquid can be mixed into your foundation to add a touch of summer warmth to your typical look. But my favorite way to use it is to dab a touch onto the bronzing points of my face (where the sun would naturally hit), and blend. So I put a touch across the tops of my cheeks, the bridge of my nose, the top of my chin, and the top of my forehead. The effect of using a liquid bronzer is that it tends to melt into my foundation for a more natural, believable look. Yet the ever-so-slight touch of gold adds a little bit of richness that’s absolutely beautiful.
A few thoughts…
NARS Laguna Liquid starts out as a sheer liquid. I found NARS Laguna more sheer and slightly more liquid and lighter in tone compared to Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Summer Bronzer 100 (originally reviewed here, and the same bottle is still going strong despite heavy use). Both are quite easy to use, and the NARS Laguna builds up nicely and easily using small washes. Of course, NARS Laguna is extremely long lasting (thank you for being a professional makeup artist, Francois Nars!) for an all-day bronze glow.
NARS Laguna liquid has a very hard to detect scent, light a slight tropical coconut, that I’ve really got to put right under my nose to detect. It’s lovely, actually, and slightly relaxing if you love the beach (who doesn’t?).
Overall, NARS Laguna Liquid is an A+ top-of-the-line bronzer. It melts into your foundation (or skin), so it doesn’t add any perceptible texture to the skin. I cannot feel it applied to the skin, it simply delivers a soft was of glowing health that is my must-have during the summer months. I typically add a powder or liquid blush as usually, and a highlighter as well. Wonderful and highly welcomed product. I love a new innovative formula, don’t you?
