I have the Nars Bronzing Powder in the color Casino.
It’s a dark-brown powder with a golden sparkle.
The sparkle is very delicate and barely perceptible on the skin. It looks very natural, only if you don’t apply too much, of course.
The product is well pigmented and you need the tiniest bit to get it on the brush, swipe the excess off and only after that apply on the skin. The blending is fine. After trying out different ways and tools for application, I found out that the product is best to apply with this fluffy brush:
Taking into the consideration the small spending of the product, it’ll really go a long way. By the way, this bronzer has some chemical fragrance.
As for the Casino shade, I deem it’ll be fine for darker skin tone or tanned skin.
Talc, ethylhexyl palmitate, nylon-12,silica,zinc stearate, polyethylene, dimethicone, trimethylsiloxysilicate, lauroyllysine lysine, ethylparaben, methylparaben, sorbitan sesquioleate, sodium dehydroacetate, trisodium edta, tocopherol, mica, titanium dioxide (CI 77891),iron oxides(CI 77491),iron oxides (CI 77492),iron oxides (CI 77499)"
So, not the best list of ingredients for 40 bucks, is it? I’m not delighted with the presence of Talc and Parabens in the list.
As for the price, I call for you to be objective. The price of $40 with no natural extracts or vitamins (well there’s vitamin E - tocopherol but it’s dirt-cheap).
You should understand that when buying this product, you pay for the packaging (I guess it’s more expensive than the content) and for the brand for sure.
I think that the hero of my today’s review is only for those who are ready to splurge on a product without thinking about its ingredients.
Thanks for your attention and have a wise shopping day!
