This, is a very special post. 
This, is a very special bronzer. 
This, is my very first NARS purchase...

And boy oh boy did I struggle to part with those £25 little gold coins. Ok, I fib. I paid on card but still, it's all the same, right? I mean really, TWENTY-FIVE-POUNDS. That's a whole lotta dollar. More than I have ever parted with for a beauty item before. Ever. That's the same as a new piercing! But alas, as you may have guessed, part with my (not very) hard earned (ok not at all) cash I did.

When out shopping with my lovely bestie Hayley, we realised we actually had a Space NK in Nottingham. What is actually really bad about this is I realised I had walked past this little wonder store on the way to my tattooist's old studio a hundred gazillion billion times! I couldn't believe it had always been there, in plain view, and I had never realised nor gone in! So when we realised that we had own very own Space NK, we just had to go in and I am so glad I did. I have to admit, the staff at the Nottingham branch of Space NK are possibly some of the most friendly, helpful, polite and cheerful staff I have ever come across. They were so helpful, gave me tons of samples (which I thoroughly enjoyed using) and really made it a very special purchase. If you live in or around Nottingham, definitely pay them a visit!

NARS Laguna was not my first choice. I went in (and had spent the entire day also traipsing around Nottingham) in the search for a matte bronzer which was just that little bit more special than the bronzers I am used to using. Originally when I swatched the three available bronze shades from NARS, I wanted Casino. Which is a shade darker than Laguna. But the lovely sales lady directed me towards Laguna telling me it was more suited to my skin tone and complexion and assured me I wouldn't regret purchasing it. And I haven't.

"NARS Laguna is a diffused powder with golden shimmer to create an all-over warmth for the entire face. It creates a natural looking glow which enhances or creates the look of tanned skin."

Now, personally, I view this bronzer as a matte bronzer. The golden shimmer which is advertised in the product, to me, is non-existent. Not once when using this have I noticed a shimmer, which is exactly how I like it because after searching through every brand, both high-street and high-end, and not finding anything matte whatsoever, this is the closest to what I was looking for. And it's perfect. Bloody amazingly rave-about-product perfect.

This is the best bronzer I have ever used. And that is no exaggeration. I am in love. Utterly, head over heels, in love. This bronzer has actually changed me. It has made me realise that before I was using a far too heavy-handed approach to applying bronzer. I apply less, look better, feel more confident, and best of all? I have perfected what is ~for me~ the perfect contouring with this. This may be my most expensive beauty product yet, but it is also hands down, my most loved, cherished and best beauty product, too.
