There’s a new version of NARS’ iconic Laguna bronzer

For beauty lovers, creamy make-up products go hand in hand with summer just like ice creams, flip-flops and getting sand into every crevice of your bag after a mere five minutes at the beach.

While we love a powder formulation in the winter, during hotter months they can feel a little claustrophobic, providing a heaviness on the skin that’s just not necessary at this time of year.

Another thing we love? Gorgeous glowing skin that makes us look like we’ve just jetted back from St Tropez, whether or not that is actually the case. So, imagine our excitement at discovering that NARS is bringing out its iconic Laguna bronzer in a cream formulation, and that it will be part of the brand’s permanent collection.

Cream products are popular for their lightweight feel, radiant finish and easy application, and the NARS bronzer is no exception. It also provides the beautiful, natural feeling colour that made the original Laguna bronzer so popular – the product gets over 15,000 Google searches a month. There will also one lighter and three darker shades too.

‘Laguna has an irresistible, sexy glow. I love how it enlivens the skin, and I am thrilled that now we have even more shades to offer,’ says François Nars, founder and creative director.

The new cream formulation is scented with the brand’s signature floral, coconut fragrance, which comes from monoi perfume oil. It’s not cheap, coming in at £32.50, but is heavily pigmented, so that you really only need a tiny amount at a time, and one purchase will last you quite a while.
