I’m a huge fan of NARS ‘Laguna’ bronzer so when I hit pan on the one I’d been using I knew it was time to treat myself to a new one. However, as I was looking on the NARS website I decided to try a bronzer/blush duo instead and once I saw the matte cotton candy pink shade of ‘Desire’ I knew I had to have it. Laguna is the perfect semi-matte bronzer and is fantastic for contouring, I remember once going to a NARS counter and they sold me ‘Casino’ which is far too dark for my complexion – I must have had so much fake tan on when I was sold that! The two shades compliment one another so well and you can tell that just from looking in the pan, they look so pretty. I have to say that you don’t need to swipe too much of Desire onto your blusher brush when applying it as it is very bright and pigmented but with just a little swipe you’re left with a gorgeous wash of colour. I think this blush will look beautiful on tanned skin and I’m looking forward to trying it in the Summer. This compact is a great size to carry around in your handbag so you touch up throughout the day and it includes a mirror! This compact costs £30 and although I really needed the bronzer which is the same size as this compact for £26 I’m glad I’ve got this in my collection. You can purchase this compact or the bronzer and blush individually on the NARS website http://www.narscosmetics.co.uk.
By the way, going off topic here, but I hope you’re all having a wonderful Valentines Day full of love and happiness. We should express our love for our loved ones everyday of the year but I believe it’s lovely to have a special day dedicated to it. I think in the world we live in we sometimes forget to stop and smell the roses and just spend quality time with our other half so Valentines Day makes people stop and enjoy some special time together.
