I swatched the New NARS Laguna Bronzing Cream at Sephora. But I did not buy it during that visit as I have too many bronzers. But I could not stop thinking about it. And I thought to myself, it swatches beautifully, smells wonderful and performs well, so this purchase is a no brainer. I had to have it. I did contemplate for 3 whole days, to be fair.
The Sephora website says this is a “A decadently creamy bronzing formula that is inspired by the bestselling shade Laguna.”
Packaging Of The New NARS Laguna Bronzing Cream

Shades Of The New NARS Laguna Bronzing Cream
This bronzer comes in five different shades now. They start with Laguna 01 and go up to Laguna 05.

- Laguna 02 – light/medium bronze with neutral undertones
- Laguna 03 – medium bronze with warm undertones
- Laguna 04 – medium-deep bronze with warm undertone
- Laguna 05 – deep bronze with neutral undertones
I picked the shade Laguna 02, as I am a huge fan of the regular Laguna powder bronzer.
Let me start by saying that this bronzer does have a very strong scent. The scent dissipates fast, but still could be bothersome to someone who does not like fragranced products. I enjoy the fragrance. It reminds me of summer. The NARS Laguna Bronzing Cream is very creamy and pigmented and it also blends well. I have used a brush as well as my fingers to pick up product and apply it to my cheeks. Both ways work effectively for me. Once I have placed the bronzer on my cheeks I prefer to use a blending brush to blend the product.
I have to be careful how much product I apply because these are seriously pigmented. A little goes a long way. It stayed on my combination skin for about 8 hours. If you have dry skin this might last longer. However if you have oily skin you might get less hours. SO all in all, the wear time depends on your skin type and temperature, humidity etc. I love the natural look of this bronzer.
- Creamy, pigmented and blendable
- Stays for about 8 hours
- Beautiful finish
- NARS Laguna Bronzing Cream has fragrance. I love it but not everyone like fragrance in their makeup products
