Punta Cana

NARS Punta Cana Powder Bronzer ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a darker brown with moderate, warm undertones and fine, gold pearl throughout that gave it a more satin-like finish once applied. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could be built up to full coverage with less than a second layer.

The texture was soft, smooth, and velvety with some glide to it–it felt more silicone-heavy compared to the brand’s long-time powder bronzer. The powder picked up easily with a brush but was controllable, so sheerer, more buildable coverage could be achieved, and it applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. 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!

This one is beautiful and very sunny looking! Since I have DoC Miramé, I know that I can get away with wearing this one, too. But I think I prefer Casino over this one for whatever reason. I can hardly wait till I can get into a store to swatch the two on my arm together to see which one I love best for my skin tone!

A beautiful color for complexions deeper than mine. I barely reach medium in very few brands. Nevertheless, it is so pretty and has a good application. Wonderful for many of us.

When I saw the picture I thought it will be dark enough for my complexion but looking at the swatches it’s a no !!!!
