Casino

NARS Casino Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) is medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that could be built up to medium coverage with two to three layers. The consistency was rather firm in the pan, which made me nervous about application, but it actually applied, blended, and diffused beautifully on the skin. It had a natural finish–matte but not flat–that did give it that “second-skin warmth” the brand spoke of in the press release. The bronzer wore well for almost eight hours on me.

The new formula is supposed to have a “matte finish” with a “sheer pigments” that look like “second-skin warmth.” There are four shades, and going from light to dark (per the brand), they are: Seaside, Laguna, Casino, and Falaises. The formula felt smoother and firmer compared to the brand’s Dual-Intensity formula (which has a similar pattern on it). The formula had sheer to medium coverage with some shades being more buildable than others. I had to use a denser brush and heavier hand to ensure product transferred onto my brush, so they would be hard to overdo.

I didn’t realize this was coming out in four different shades re-formulation style; I thought it was just one special edition kinda thing. Now I’m pretty psyched, especially to see the one lighter than laguna!! 🙂

(sucks for everyone that sprung for the laguna tiara enormous bronzer last year tho haha)

It’s a toss-up for me between this one and Falaises. This one looks so natural and truly life like! It has just the right level of a golden hue to it, but I also spot a pinkish or light reddish hue to it that is nonexistent in Laguna? Yes, this could be IT!

Almost all of these seem too dark for me, even Seaside. If it was like one shade lighter then it would be good! This one looks great on you. Looks more red than Laguna but still with yellow!
