I adore the bronzer. I usually wear sparkly brushes and my favorite high lites are also sparkly so to avoid looking like a glitter ball I was need a great matte bronzer. I'm pale so by bronzer is IMPORTANT. I don't have good check bones so my bronzer is IMPORTANT. This was amazing. It doesn't look orange, cakey, or too dark. Absolutely 100% everyone can use this it wont look silly! (unless of course your skin is darker then this color)
Remember do not over apply over bronzer is gross.
Suuuch a steal when it comes to bronzers! I bought this because of all the hype for it & Im glad I did. It is very light, but I like building up my bronzers. The color is completely matte so no shiny-glittery face! I used it as a blush last time and it came out pretty nice, giving me a healthy glow. It's also a great contour color. And of course the packaging is whack but who cares when the product is great right? I bought a second one for back-up cuz it's supposedly dc but I still see it in stores. Ohh well, just go get yourself one!
Supposedly this product is getting discontinued, so go buy it while you can! I've been looking it for it whenever I go to drugstores and they're always out.. ):
Anyway, this is my favorite bronzer. I hit pan on it today! It gives me a healthy tanned look - not necessarily a glow, since it's matte, but I like that I don't look fake. The only downside is that it can tend to look cakey and orange if you put on too much or with a brush that's too dense. But once you master the art (hah), it looks fantastic.
Great basic bronzer. Can be used for a light glow or a full on suntan look. I can see this working on a variety of skin tones, and on my fair, freckled skin, it looks great. Five stars for good quality and lasting power, great basic bronzy color w/out visible shimmer or glitter, and a great inexpensive price!
I really like this bronzer. It gives you a natural looking glow and it is not shimmery or anything. I would definitely buy it again. It is also very cheap.
This just does not show up on me, it does not seem to be very pigmented.
LOVE LOVE this bronzer. im pretty pale and need to warm up my face every now and then and this works great. its not orangy and it isnt too dark. also its buildable so u dont have to worry about it being too heavy. its to bad that its being discontinued ill probably try the rimmel bronzers instead
I normally use Cargo Matte Bronzer in Medium, which I love, but I have been wanting to find a cheaper alternative for traveling and backup. I heard about this bronzer from emilynoel on youtube and I thought at 2.99, it couldn't hurt to try it. I really like it overall. The color payoff is not nearly as great as with Cargo, but if you use a little bit at a time on a blush brush and add layers you get a really nice effect. For the price, it's definitely worth the effort. I know some people complain about the cheap N.Y.C. packaging, but I really don't mind it at all. I just love finding bargain makeup that actually works. If the packaging is not quite excellent, that's ok with me. I know emily mentioned she heard it was being discontinued, but I was able to find it at a few different stores and the product is still listed on the N.Y.C. website, so maybe N.Y.C. decided to keep it afterall. I hope so! It's a good quality bronzer at a very affordable price.
I bought this product at CVS during Buy One Get One 50% off this week on all N.Y.C products, after reading reviews on MUA I decided to give this one a try. I was pretty excited considering the $2.99 price tag and common guys, you know this is pretty cheap compared to other high-end bronzers like Dior, Chanel, ETC. I thought this would do something for me. I am a NW3O it is winter and this is the lightest I HAVE EVER been, I did stop tanning in the tanning beds. I put this on and got ABSOLUTELY NO PIGMENTATION it didn't make a difference if it was on or off... You couldn't tell. I like when Bronzer gives you a nice Bronze touch just enough to give you that glow on your cheeks... This had nothing. I hate this product it was a waste and I will not re-purchase this under any circumstance.
Great matte bronzer. The color is not too dark, so you can't really over do it with this one. Hate the packaging. It is exactly like NYC's pressed translucent compact but in a "bronzey" color. Little sponge it comes with is useless, too. I throw it away, and use a nice dense brush. I hear it's discontinued, so I stocked up on the few my CVS had, and then they re-stocked, so I'm confused, maybe they are still putting out old stock. Anyway, I will and have re-purchased.
