The NARS Laguna Bronzer was not a product that I was anticipating to buy when I stepped into House of Fraser (http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk). I was after the NARS Contouring Brush, I had, on many occasions, walked past the NARS counter and noted how soft the bristles were and how perfect it would fit into the hollows of my cheek bones. When enquiring about the price a very kind lady at the counter informed me that the price of the brush on it's own was very close to the price of the Laguna Bronzer and Brush Duo. She was quick to inform me that the brush had the exact same size head, it was, in fact, the handle that had been shortened in order to fit in the box. (even proving to me that this was the case.)
The price therefore seemed reasonable to me. After testing this bronzer out for a least a month I have been loving it. I almost wish that the little palette had more contour colours, as I am sure it is going to take me a good few years to finish the bronzer. The shade is perfect for carving out the face or to just apply a light brush of bronzer on those lazy days. The brush itself is very soft and does not apply a heavy layer of bronzer, but instead blends easy to create the desired contoured look.
