Sephora 2021 NARS Birthday Gift – Swatches

Yes, I realize that we are halfway through 2021, but I didn’t pick up my Sephora birthday gift until fairly recently.

I found that once trying the products from the set on, they looked different than what I imagined they would look like (particularly the lip balm), so I figured I’d make a swatch post so people can take a closer look into what they’re getting before they decide on which Sephora gift to receive.

The set comes with two mini NARS products – the bronzer and the Afterglow Lip Balm, both in the shade Laguna.

    I got this same product for the 2021 birthday gift, and I loved the bronzer! I’d like to repurchase it, however, they have 9 shades called Laguna (Laguna 00, 01, 02….). Any idea which one the free sample was?

      I’ve been trying to figure this out and just noticed one picture on the Sephora site has the 02 as the “original”. I think it’s that one!
