Nars Cosmetics is one of my all-time favorite brands. I love their Illuminators, Sheer Glow foundation is my number one and don’t even get me started on their amazing blushes. However, one of their product areas that I haven’t really been super stoked about are the bronzers. Let’s be real, the shades Laguna and Casino won’t do anything to enhance my complexion but with my discovery of the Contour blushes my aversion to their bronzers has been remedied.

Nars has created many products that I consider must-haves but their bronzer game has always gotten a side-eye from me because I only saw Laguna and Casino being advertised and promoted. However, with this Nars Contour Blush they have won me over. The product is currently available in 5 shades and will work for a variety of complexions. While I am hoping that they expand the shade range to include deeper shades, the shade that I purchased works perfectly for my complexion and it blends seamlessly. It gives a very natural looking contour and highlight.
One side contains a small highlight shade that I can use to blend out my concealer powder and lightly highlight my cheek bones and brow area. The other side has a larger bronzer shade that while warm-toned it isn’t too red to remain natural and wearable. Both shades are soft, pigmented, and easy to blend. I highly recommend this product and it is now my go to since my beloved Guerlain Bronzer in Ebony 8 has been discontinued. I even plan on purchasing additional shades for my professional makeup kit as well so you know it’s legit!
