It is a gorgeous shade and will be fool-proof for paler skin tones. Here it is next to Laguna (right) so you can see how it compares:

New NARS Matte Bronzing Powder

So this is the brand new formula and rather exciting. I do love a matte bronzer especially as I tend to avoid setting powders and love to allow my skin to glow in all the right places. A matte bronzer oftens means I can skip powder and not worry too much about my makeup disappearing.

NARS Matte Bronzing Powder - Vallarta
NARS Matte Bronzing Powder – Vallarta
  • Provides instant comfort and coverage
  • Lightweight formula delivers a natural, sun-kissed look
  • Ideal to contour and define the face
  • Formula enriched with a luxurious blend of botanical oils and extracts to help protect and soften the skin
  • Designed for all day, non-drying, comfortable wear

The Shades:

  • Vallarta – matte light tan (new shade)
  • Laguna – matte warm brown
  • Samoa – matte deep golden brown (new shade)

I have shade Vallarta to show you:

Again this is perfect for lighter skin tones and because it is completely matte, you’ll be able to use it for natural looking contouring too. This could well become a new favourite.

NARS Paradise Found Bronzing Powder

Apart from the fact that the design of this compact is stunning, the first thing you will notice about it is that it smells just like NARS’ amazing body oils! So perfect and summery.

This is an oversized special edition Laguna bronzer with a sand-wave design and gold over-spray. I kind of just want to keep it and look at it.

  1. A lovely collection, I’m definitely tempted even though we are in Autumn here and it’s freezing. You have 2 different descriptions for the Power Pigment Shock’Em in this post and your previous post with the initial launch so I am not sure exactly what colour it is.

  2. I’m a bit confused…I thought the shade ‘Hammered’ was the blackened red? ‘Stricken’ is described as rich glistening chocolate on Cult.
