NARS Bord de Plage Highlighting + Bronzing Palette | Review

NARS Bord de Plage Highlighting Bronzing Palette swatches review photos face look

Over the summer, there was a whole slew of highlighting and bronzing releases ranging from individual compacts to conveniently packaged palettes. Hands down, my pick of the lot was and continues to be the NARS Bord de Plage Highlighting + Bronzing palette ($59 for 6 x 0.12 oz.).

Everything about this palette is perfect. The packaging is sleek and sturdy - I love that it is solid and luxurious and not too bulky! There is 0.12 oz. of product in each of the 6 pans, which is essentially half of a full sized pan of highlighter or bronzer - I consider this to be really fantastic value. And then of course there's the product itself, which is outstanding.

There are 4 highlighters and 2 bronzers (Laguna + Casino). The formula of the highlighters seems the same as the NARS Dual Intensity formula - a gel-powder hybrid that is pigmented, finely milled and which applies beautifully to the skin and which is buildable from just a wash of glow to a full-on metallic highlight. The formula of the two bronzers is the same as the newly released for summer Sun Washed Diffused Bronzers...I found that it picks up easily, and it's easy to apply a natural wash of each without overdoing it. Like the highlighters, the bronzers are easily buildable to a stronger and bolder look if desired. Personally, I like that neither bronzer has a very orangey hue, which makes them suitable for year-round use as all-purpose contour powders!

Below are a few looks of the palette in action.

Since I picked up the Bord de Plage palette a few months ago, I have used it almost every day for contouring and highlighting, and I always bring it with me when I travel. It's such a gorgeous palette that is high quality in every possible way, and for the price, I feel like it's a complete steal! I highly recommend picking this up - no need to save it just for summer...I will be using this all year round!
