REVIEW - The New Nars sun wash diffusing bronzer – Luguna

by - Thursday, August 17, 2017


Hello gorgeous people! Hope everyone is doing well and happy. A month ago I was going through my makeup draws and noticed that I had severely hit pan on my Nars luguna bronzer powder and when I mean I hit pan there was no product left it is pretty much gone besides what is stuck to the edges of the corner of the pan. And I wasn’t kidding myself in trying to be able to even get the product out some how. I don’t know if it is just me but at times when this happens and I get to this point with not only this product but other powders I do find that there very less pigmented and not workable, is it just me being a snob ? Please let me know if you notice this too?
Well is it obvious that I was in the market for a new bronzer, now the thought to purchase the original one was in the back of my mind but I just wasn’t ride or die for it so lucky for me this one was at my local mecca cosmetica. Like all beauty junkies I had a little play and a little chat to the sales assistant and it happened.

Now do we really need to talk about the Nars packaging of their powder products, and yes the rubber texture compact drive’s me nuts when it gets all my dirty foundation finger prints on it. Other then that I do love the sleek black compact packing.

So one of the reasons why I did have to have a think and a play with it in store was that I’m not a ride or die fan of the original one. Why? Well I found that the colour at times is a little muddy on me and the application a little choppy most of the times. I noticed it tends to break up on me as well. So I wanted to check out the formulation before purchasing and I did like what I felt of course.
The product its self feels very finely milled witch gives it’s a silky texture to touch. I found this product less chalky and more of a smooth consistency then the originally call me crazy the undertone of it seems to be a little more neutral then the original still very close in comparison If you held the two together .There is absolutely no presence of glitter at all I couldn’t see any glitter across the other shades. Application wise it was a dream to blend I found it quite effortless it applied so smoothly didn’t appear to be choppy, and it really did give of the natural sun kissed glow. You can easily build this up for a more structured contour look if you wanted it’s very easy and that’s how I have been wearing it of course. It did not appear choppy at all as a bronzer or as a contour and it did not appear muddy throughout the day ether.
 I found it applies so smoothly and sits so well on the skin you can get it to sit so naturally by running the brush through to the out perimeters of your face for that naturally sunkissed glow and work it in to a contour. Again I found this product to be very versatile to be able to use it lightly to heavy handed with a great natural look. I did have to work a little to build this product up for a contour That being said this is more of a diffused version so a softer lighter version of the original.
I defiantly think this bronzer would be great for contour begins it really is fail safe. So far I’m loving this product for everyday use for work and little casual outings. I’m looking at getting a dark shade to add to the collection. So overall I’m loving this one it has won over the original in my books.
Have you tried this one? Or maybe you are a ride or die fan of the original Nars Bronzer? I would like to know either way.
Love CC xoxo

  3. This looks so amazing, i love Nars and this one sounds so perfect for me, i do love fail safe kind of products as i am not very comfortable when i have to do my full face makeup and to keep things simple and natural, i do prefer something which looks natural and does not look heavy if applied with heavy hand.
