No, not at all. I think orgasm is too shimmery as well. I don't really use the powder at all because of that. I LOVE Laguna though. Perfect for fair skin too.

Laguna or Casina for Asian Honey beige skin color?
Laguna or Casina for Asian Honey beige skin color? I've read most of the reviews for medium skinned and I've noticed most medium skinned people picked Laguna, and a couple for casino. My skin color is more of a honey beige. I don't want my bronzer to look to light on my skin, I plan on mixing blush and bronzer at the same time.

It's a tough question because Laguna is a much prettier color but has poor color pay off. Casino has better color pay off but looks more on the orange side... so it's your pick.

Because this is so highly pigmented I would use a dual fiber brush. If you are near a target, sonia kasnuk has two sizes of dual fiber brushes that are nice enough for the price. That kind of brush gives the lightest application. I use the larger size for blending any tan lines I might have if I am going to wear a low cut or strapless top. The smaller size I use for highlighting, but you could also use for bronzing on your face. Just touch your brush to the bronzer once! Its really enough! Very pigmented. If you are going all over, I would apply with the dual fiber brush, and then blend further with a kabuki brush.

The best way to apply a bronzer is to use an angled coutour blush and a light hand. Just get a tiny bit on the brush and slowly work it in. The best way to acheive a look is to build on the color until you get the desired effect. And also use a light hand. Be sure when you apply you also sweep going away from your inner face fanning it towards the outside of your face.

answer 6
Use a fluffly brush if you want an all-over glow and lightly deposit some product onto the brush. Use a light hand when applying it to your face.
If you want to contour your best bet is to use an angled brush. Take the angled brush and apply product to it. The suck in your cheeks and lightly apply the powder to wear your cheeks go hollow. Also bring the product up to your temples. Then take a clean brush and blend it into the skin.

Dab a bit with a brush on nose, forehead, and chin. Do cheeks first while "smiling in front of mirror". The excess is just enough for rest of face. Be sure to touch up T-zone with regular powder throughout day, while avoiding the cheek area.

Use a big fluffy powder brush and lightly apply to your forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks until you get your desired effect. Use the "3 and E" technique - Glide the brush from the middle of your forehead, down & across your cheek almost to your nose, and then down and across your chin, like you are making a 3 or an E, depending which side you do it on.
Don't forget to blend into your neck so there are no harsh lines.
Hope this helped! xo

LAGUNA definitely. I have fair - light skin and laguna is the perfect shade. It doesn't go on heavy so you can decide how much you want to put on and it doesn't make you look orange or unnaturally tanned. It's the perfect hint of sun kissed skin. It's my favorite bronzer I've ever had and it's a staple in my everyday makeup.
