Are you ready to get Tropical? This week NARS introduces a total escape for the senses with the Tahiti Bronze Collection.
The 5 piece collection combines lavish new launches with NARS cult favorites for face and body: two sumptuous multipurpose body oils (Monoï Body Glow and Monoï Body Glow II), a new sheer and ultra-versatile bronzing liquid (Liquid Laguna Bronzer), a limited edition bronzing powder (Laguna Tiara Bronzer) and a richly scented parafin-free wax candle.
The first thing that will grab you about this collection is the scent. Luxe and tropical the entire range is infused with French Polynesia’s signature Monoi fragrance which is made from the tiare flower. Probably the closest description would be a heavenly islandy gardenia scent mixed with a splash of vanilla.
If you ever wanted your home to smell like NARS Body Glow, now is your chance!
The luxe parabin-free wax candle is infused with the Monoi fragrance and smells in-cred-able!
Monoi Body Glow I. The original Monoi beauty oil and my personal favorite this is the product that just about EVERY beauty brand has tried (and failed) to copy. It is a lightweight blend of hydrating essences with Tiate flower steeped in native coconut oil. It gives skin a bronzed, radiant glow and smells incredible. Apply Body Glow immediately after showering for maximum hydrating benefits. Allow a few minutes for the product to absorb into the skin before getting dressed.
Monoi Body Glow II. This is basically the oil without the bronzer added. Monoï de Tahiti oil is the result of macerating the tiare flower (Tahitian gardenia) in refined coconut extract for at least 10 days, slowly infusing the oil with nutrients as well as a delicate, natural fragrance. Each bottle of Monoï Body Glow II retains a tiare flower to capture the essence of this unique process. Gives skin a radiant glow and luxe Monoi fragrance.
Liquid Laguna Bronzer. A sheer and weightless liquid version NARS best selling warm brown Laguna shade. Enriched with Monoi and Tamany oils and vanilla extract for moiturizing and antioxidant benefits.
It can be worn alone for a sun kissed effect or blended with tinted moisturizer for an all over glow.
This is it applied directly in one swipe.
..and this is it blended a bit. Beautiful glow with a bit of iridescent golden shimmer.
Laguna Tiare Bronzer. NARS’ iconic Laguna Bronzer- a diffused brown powder laced with golden shimmer.
It is the powder form of the Liquid Laguna Bronzer and it’s a MUST-HAVE for SS16! Even this has the glorious Monoi scent!
