Laguna

NARS Laguna Afterglow Lip Balm ($28.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, caramel brown with moderate, warm undertones and fine copper pearl paired with a balmy, lightly luminous finish. The texture was lightweight, emollient without being too thick or slippery, and it felt thin on my lips after an hour or so of wear.

It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage, as expected based on the claims, that covered my lips evenly and dispersed the shimmer/pearl well. It didn’t seem to emphasize my lip lines and was comfortable to wear. It wore well for two and a half hours and felt very lightly hydrating.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

It looks nice enough…but I think I prefer Revlon Sparkling Honey from earlier today. Also, the Laguna oil gloss looks better to my eye, as well.
