Nars Irrisistiblement Bronzer

Nars Irresistiblement Bronzer ($34) is described on NARS website as a “golden terracotta”. Terracotta is the exact color I would describe this bronzer as. Instead of a golden brown like Nars Laguna, it is a red/orange brown. I know many out there typically try to avoid any tones of orange in their bronzer and steer towards true brown bronzers, but my warm, medium skin takes terracotta tones very well. This bronzer is especially nice on light skin as well.
This bronzer will work on anyone who takes well to warm rosy brown, caramel brown and peach blush shades.
I was a bit disappointed with the texture of the powder; it’s a bit on the drier side, but despite the texture, it blends well on the cheeks, and picks up a good amount of product.
Irresistilement is very pigmented, and a little goes a long way.

This bronzer has been compared to MAC Smooth Harmony Beauty Powder, which was a limited edition shade. I own it from the Heatherette Collection. I’m not sure if it has been relaunched in any later collections. I had purchased back ups since because I don’t own anything like it. Smooth Harmony is an orange toned beauty powder that I would say is also a terracotta, but compared to Irresistiblement, it’s apparent that it’s much less terracotta, and more orange. Irresistiblement has more of a ruddy tone.

Have you tried Irresistiblement?

  1. I like the looks of the NARS one a lot better in the swatches. It can be difficult to find a good bronzer! I'm quite pale, so I need lighter ones with as little orange as possible.

    I might have to give this one a try. 🙂


  2. I'm personally in LOVE with Smooth Harmony and wish I had gotten a backup (been checking CCOs unsuccessfully) but the NARS looks nice. I'll check it out. 🙂
