NARS Laguna Sunkissed Bronzing CreamNARS Laguna Sunkissed Bronzing Cream ($ 38.00 for 0.67 oz.) Is a light medium brown with warmer, golden undertones and a matte finish. It had a semi-opaque, buildable paint cover that was slightly more pigmented than what is on the market.
The texture was thicker and firmer in the glass, although it was not thick to work with. So, rather, it was applied as a thin, velvety layer that dried quickly for a more powdery feel and finish. I would recommend working one area at a time to create a blending effect as it is not as forgiving after it dries out. It stayed good for eight hours before it visibly faded.

The formula should have a “soft-matt” finish that “builds up seamlessly” and changes from “cream to powder”. It smells of the brand’s Monoi de Tahiti oil, a beach scent that was barely noticeable after application.
The consistency was denser, if not thick, so it didn’t feel very pliable, which made it easier to work with various basic products as well as with bare skin. It dried quickly to a “soft, matte” finish so it was advisable to work one area at a time as you blended the product.
They had a medium buildable cover that was evenly applied and masked out without too much effort. The colors stayed good for eight hours before noticeably fading.
