I have been searching forever for a nice matte bronzer! Its hard to believe it was only $3 at walmart. It looks so natural and beautiful. Its not orange at all, it makes for a really nice contour, which is what i use it for. Only downside is the packaging, verrrryy cheap and opens easily in my purse. Love the product though. Will buy again.
Iíve been looking for an affordable and matt bronzer, so I picked this up from walgreens. Think this is less than $3? I like this because the powder is really finely milled, but itís not really pigmented in my opinion, so I have to layer on a lot of powder, which I donít like. I am about NC 25/20 in mac foundations/concealers.
Product details: 0.33oz/ 9.4g.
Pros: Affordable, matt, silky smooth, mirror in packaging, good color.
Cons: Not pigmented.
Overall: 5/10 stars - because it is not pigmented.
I looked like death when I bought this, so I immediately opened it and applied it with my ELF powder brush in the rite-aid parking lot. For a grand total of $6 for the bronzer and brush, my NW20 face became presentable to the outside world. WIN.
As a side note, I have tried and (loved) MAC golden bronzer, am meh on NARS laguna, and find benefit hoola to be reminiscent of dirt. I'm more of a blush kinda gal, so I've quit spending $$$ on bronzer--thanks, NYC, for thinking of us pale girls. If should I continue to find myself digging this I'll update my rating to a 5 (because let's be serious, who cares if the packaging is garbage if you find a great product for $3?)
I got this bc of all the great reviews, but it just doesnt show up on me. Im NC37 and it's just too light for my skin tone. I'm just gona stick to my Nars Laguna bronzer.
Love, love, love this product!! This is my go to bronzer! It is a beautiful matte bronzer that is perfect for my NW20, light skin. It applies nice, not orange at all. It is a great price and I would recommend to anyone who has very light skin. The only down fall is the cheap packaging, but I still give it a 5, because I am more about the product. I will repurchase when needed.
HG Bronzer! I purchased this after reading all the raves here on MUA and I have to say, I'm so glad I did! It goes on perfectly with the EcoTools bronzing brush (and I usually just slap makeup on and go--so it's great that this product doesn't require a ton of blending for me). I didn't experience any over-application like some users have cautioned against. Nor did I find that the packaging was overly flimsy--it seems fine to me! Finally, I find that the product lasts quite awhile. I've been using it daily for just over a month and haven't even noticed a dent in the pan!
The best part about this bronzer (aside from the price) is the fact that it does not have any glitter or sheen to it. It also does not turn orange at all on my skin! I'm NC25-30.
It was alright on me, except that it broke me out after a couple wears. Three little zits on a diagonal line on each cheek, right where I put the bronzer. :( The compact is also very difficult to close, for some reason.
After reading all the great reviews here I tried this bronzer and I love it! I normally hate bronzers as they are either usually orange or so packed with glitter they look awful on me. Sunny is very light and natural on my NW20 complexion. And no glitter!! This gives me a nice healthy glow and I only paid $2CA. HG bronzer!
I picked this up at Walmart after reading all the good reviews and raves on the makeup board about how this was great on fair skin. I'm an NC20 and I wanted a bronzer that looked extremely natural. This fits the bill perfectly and doesn't even cost $3. I look really healthy and sunkissed with this on for it has no orange tones. When my arms get darker in the summertime they are almost exactly the color of this bronzer. Highly recommend!!
This is actually my first bronzer ever, as I'm only now getting into the whole bronzer/contouring thing. It's has a nice matte finish to it which I like, and I also like that it's not too heavily pigmented but it's not too light either. One tiny downside to this is the sponge that comes with the package, I don't even know how to describe it, but it's pretty bad. I think all NYC powders come with that sponge, though. Anyway, this is a great bronzer, especially for those who are just entering the world of bronzers and contouring and don't want to spend too much on something you're trying out.
