Comparison 101: NARS Laguna VS ELF Sta. Lucia

Hellos! Since I’m feeling hardworking nowadays, hence decided to create a Comparison 101 entries whereas comparing two similar products and determining which really reigns *in my opinion* of course~

First off, let me lay down the two bronzers I have been using these few days for the purpose of this comparison review:
1) NARS Bronzer in Laguna        Price: USD 36
Product Claims:
  • A true brown based bronzer with a gold shimmer
  • Excellent for creating or enhancing the look of healthy, glowing, tanned skin
  • Suitable for all skin type, fills in fine lines and pores
2) ELF Bronzing Powder in Sta.Lucia           Price: USD 3
Product Claims:
  • Accents and Contours cheek bones for beautiful definition

My mom is not a make-up savvy person, so I made her choose which one does she thinks look nicer and have that “slimmer effect”. PS: She doesn’t know anything about NARS or ELF nor which one is much expensive etc
In Terms
Comment from Mom
Mom’s Take
On Swatches
My mom clearly pointed the NARS Laguna over the ELF Bronzer and the comment she made was the powder look more fine and smooth on my wrist

NARS Laguna shade look better compared to ELF. The comment she made for the ELF is the shade doesn’t look that natural for my skintone
When Applied on Face
My mom said that my features look much prominent and have that slimmer effect instantly on NARS Laguna
My mom comment when I use ELF is it does define my face but not the slimmer kind of way
On Packaging
Velvet packaging wowed my mom’s preference more
She definitely chose NARS packaging over ELF

Overall Takes:
  • I know NARS is way EXPENSIVE than the ELF Bronzer but for those who shares the same dilemma as I do which is ROUND, CHUBBY and FAT face. This would be a great investment and definitely worth the price!
  • Cheat to a more skinnier face using NARS LAGUNA
That’s it for my first post of the Comparison 101 review~
