Question
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.

Neither. I'm half asian and have yellow undertones as well. Laguna doesn't show up on me and casino looks red and muddy. try guerlain. better consistency and better color range for gals with yellow undertones. ;)

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.

It's a subtle shimmer. And even though it DOES have shimmer, the shimmer looks quite natural, believe it or not. And, you can adjust the shimmer as you wish. I find the you can buff it out fairly well using a kabuki brush. But really, it's such a subtle shimmer that it looks normal on your skin.

Definitely Laguna. I am so fair, but I have Laguna and I LOVE it! You can barely tell there is any kind of shimmer in it. In fact, it looks very matte on your skin is much less orangey than Irresistablement.

i use laguna because i have light skin, maybe an nc20 if i had to guess (don't use mac foundations anymore and when i did i was using tanning beds *cringes* so i'm not sure of my shade). if i were you i would go for casino! i think someone at sephora even told me casino is for darker skin tones and laguna is for lighter skin tones. i'd be worried about laguna not really showing up, unless you realllllly layered it.

I think I am very similiar to your skin tone (I wear stromboli foundation as well) and I have the bronzer in Laguna. I love Laguna because the color compliments my skin tone very much and there is no orange, pink, nor red undertones in it, which I like. It is a true brown, without any muddiness and it also very buildable for all season round. I don't have Casino but tried it once in the store and it seems more rosier brown in color. I hope this helps!

Go with Laguna for day-to-day. It's great because it gives you a glow without looking like you are wearing bronzer. Casino is very nice too, but I would save that for when you are more tanned or if you are wearing more dramatic makeup.

I think Casino for you, I have light skin (in winter), tan easily, blonde hair and blue eyes and I use Laguna, I bet it wouldn't be enough color for you. It appears that Casino is just a bit deeper, but same color spectrum.

Laguna. If you are thinking the Irresistiblement color is like a bronzer and blush in one, rethink. I purchased it and it made my face look like I had a sunburn. But you can not go wrong with Laguna. Its amazing. GOOD LUCK!
