I think Laguna looks slightly lighter on me. Or maybe the color is slightly different from the NARS Virtual Domination palette? Here's my swatch:

I think it's just because I put on quite a few layers to really see the color

Thank you SO much for this! I've just been told that to make my face look less thin, I need to use a bronzer and highlighter in kind of the opposite places than people do for regular contouring, but as I'd never used a facial bronzer, I was a bit lost. This makes it so much easier to figure out what might work :smileyhappy:

You are quite welcome, Chickibum! Hoola is probably one of my least favorite. It is too orange/muddy looking on me. :smileysad:

This is helpful! I'm so pale, bronzers can be a big gamble for me. Radiant Light looks beautiful, I need to wear it more.

I feel the same way about Radiant Light. It's something that is pretty and subtle on me, which is the bronzer look I prefer. :smileyhappy:

Thanks so much for posting( it is especially  helpful since I have a very similar skin color)!

Great! I'm happy to hear you found it useful! I think it's harder to find bronzers when you are really fair skin. I have purchased so many that were just too dark, too orangey, too muddy for me.

Thanks, @BuxomBabe80 !  This is great!  I'm very light so I don't really pay attention to bronzers.  I didn't realize there was such a range available.  I really like Sun Bunny.  I think I'll swatch it the next time I go to Sephora!

You're welcome, Titan06! I'm also super fair so I don't often pay attention to bronzers either. Some of these I picked up samples of and have been pleasantly surprised by! Sun Bunny is really pretty and has a satin finish. Not good for contouring, but great for adding a little color to the face!
