I bought this when all the NYX products went on sale at ULTA. I hate it. It's gritty, and just feels ridiculously cheap. I can't use it.
The colors are nice, but that's about it. The brush is useless.

TRIBAL ODYSSEY was quite a mess. It's too chalky, and the brush(as usual) that goes with it was prickly. No matter how light i pick up the product from the pan, i have to tap it a couple of times before apply on my face. There's too much glitter, for a bronzer itself, and for my asian skin, the color didn't contrast much, all i get is a golden bright look. I only used it less than 5 times, and chuck it at the back of my makeup drawer.

Terrible bronzer! Mine is in bronze ensemble, and the two shades are either too orangey or too glittery. Mix the both together and you get orangey, glittery patches on your face. Doesn't blend well on my skin.

This review is for Cha Cha with Sun God Bronzing Stick. I really like this - a lot! At first I was a little hesitate, due to the copious amounts of glimmer but really, the glimmer isn't that bad. The color is a very pretty bronze with gold glimmer and when you apply and blend it in the glimmer seems to melt into your skin leaving just a veil of dewy looking color. I have a MAC NC20-25 skin tone and at first I thought this color would be too dark for me but in fact, it's perfect. I look like I got a little sun without getting burned. Another thing I really like about this shade is that, imo, most bronzers you have to add a little pop of color or you look one dimensional and fake, not so with bronzer, it brings a little color and life into the skin without any extra products needed and lasts for a fairly long time, maybe 6-7 hours. Definitely worth checking out.

This is for the Cha Cha with Sun God Bronzing Stick. I bought & repurchased the Nars Multiple in Malibu in the past b/c it made me look naturally bronzed & made me feel fabulous. It use to be about twenty bucks & now it's like $30 bucks, so I have not repurchased it in years. I'm not a fool for high end any longer. I've found there are cheap dupes for everything. Well, here it is. At long last, the dupe for the Nars Multiple. Cha-Cha With Sun God Bronzer Stick is the perfect dupe for Malibu. I love it and I love NYX for selling it. I now look fabulous again and have some extra money in the bank ;) The color is great, the product blends well, the tube is easy to use & the price is right.

This product caught my eye at the not-so-local Ulta. I'm not such a huge fan of NYX because I'm deeply affected by packaging and theirs just doesn't hit the materialistic spot. The color is really nice. It has a light brown, a darker one, a true pink, and a white color I guess it the highlight (don't know why they would add a highlight but more about that later.) It's pigmented but extensively shimmery, almost to the point of being a highlighter (we're here!) Which is cool. It's a really nice highlighter and I can imagine slapping this on at a wedding or a summer night or when I'm trying to impress girls :D Because it's very much a highlighter, it make my cheekbones look sharp and defined. However, I'm just NOT into glittery or shimmery cheek products and though this one is nice and pretty, it goes a bit overboard in my opinion. I'm going to keep it and use it as a nice little special occasion product. I'm pretty low-key makeup wise but I like glitter on rare occasions. Maybe I'll swipe this on my collarbone at a party or when I know my friends are going to take lots of pictures (which is always, no? We're all guilty of this.) The price is a bit much for the brand but I guess for the product reasonable. The packaging is not sleek and I'm a big fan or sharp, chic, sleek containers. There's a nice, big mirror and a brush that you might as intend to throw before you purchase. I think there are other colors but this one gives my medium-light or light-medium skin enough color for me. All in all, it's iiiight. I'm hard to please.

Nice, affordable dupes for Too Faced bronzers. I have this in When Leopard gets a Tan and Tan Enthusiasm. Both of these bronzers work best for fair to light skin tones because the color payoff is so light. I think that the applicator brush is too soft to really pick up and apply the bronzer. I have to really press down on the brush to get any color on my face. Tan Enthusiasm which is the Snow Bunny dupe, is my fave. It gives me a bronze tint with a golden shimmery glow that is not overwhelming. I mean I have large pores and can pull this off without putting the spotlight on my pores. Every time I wear this one, people comment on my skin. When Leopard gets a tan is a pinkish bronzer that is more matte than Tan Enthusiasm, although there is some shimmer in it. NYX tango with bronzers have much less shimmer than the Too Faced products which I prefer.

I bought bronze ensemble and when leopard gets a tan. I love bronze ensemble with just one brush you just enough for the day. I have tan skin so it goes perfect with this one. When leopard gets a tan is so perfect also because the pink just goes right with my skin tone. I bought the pink leopard too faced.......and compare it to the nyx when leopard gets a tan. NYX definitely wins. Too faced is so icy white it looks so nasty on my tan skin.

I agree with the above comments about how shimmery it is BUT I actually did swatches of all of the Tango with Bronzers before choosing one.
You would think the darkest one TAN ENTHUSIASM would be best if you want that bronzy look but actually all of them seemed SUPER shimmery (so it would be good for a highlight) EXCEPT for 02 BRONZE ENSEMBLE. That one wasn't too bad in terms of shimmer and it seemed actually the darkest.
I'm not going to lie I haven't applied it to my face yet because I already had makeup on today so I can't say how great it is but I did add a little bit onto where I already had bronzer on and it seemed fine.
I do know for a fact from doing multiple swatches of all the shades that if you want the bronzy look without too much shimmer and you want to buy from the Tango with Bronzer collection.. I would go with 02 BRONZE ENSEMBLE (however it does have some shimmer so it isn't matte).
The packaging isn't bad. It is a little bulky but it comes with a brush underneath the bronzer and it has a mirror in it so you can use it on the go.
I actually also got it at ULTA for buy one get one 50% off right now so as of MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.. price wasn't too bad, I got two bronzers for $22.50 and I would probably re-buy ONLY the 02 BRONZE ENSEMBLE if I were to buy it again.

I would rate this product a zero if I could! I purchased this in Tan Enthusiasm at Ulta because I needed a highlight/bronzer (and the colors look really pretty). After using it a couple times I did not notice any difference no matter how much of it I packed on. Maybe my skin tone is too dark for this product. When I used my fingers to swatch it, I realized there is absolutely no pigmentation in this product. It was far too sheer and not buildable for me. And for $14.99?! Yikes. The only good thing I have to say about this is the packaging is very nice. It comes with a big mirror and brush that you can use to sweep on but other than that I will never purchase again.

(FOR TAN ENTHUSIASM, COMPARED TO TOO FACED SNOW BUNNY)
My biggest beef with this product is twofold. Number 1, this is more of a HIGHLIGHTER than a bronzer and I specifically bought it because I needed a bronzer. As a highlighter, it's OK, but since I didn't want that when I purchased it, I knocked a lippie off. Number 2, this has very POOR pigmentation. It is very difficult to get enough product to make an effect (I had to swirl my brush like 5 times to get this to show up) and it doesn't blend well at all. The bronze strip is my most chalky/"hard" (no other way to describe it really), so it doesn't come across well at all on the face. It leaves more of a pinky-peachy-golden effect, but that certainly doesn't look "bronzed" in any way on me. Part of this is also rooted in the fact that NYX made each strip of color the same size, so even if they did blend well, the bronze would be much less noticable.
Compared to the original Snow Bunny (I'll upload a pic for comparison), this really does not hit the mark for what I'd call a good dupe. It DOES NOT give the same effect because the bronze color is almost completely missing. I'd rather get the original snow bunny than this for bronzing, but I'll probably use this up as a highlighter.
Lastly, if this were less expensive, I might consider it a good alternative to Snow Bunny, but since it's only half the price of the original, and not, say, a quarter or an eighth, I really can't imagine wasting my money on this when I could get Snow Bunny for a little more.

I LOVE this product. I have it in Tan Enthusiasm. I got hooked on Too Face's Snow Bunny, but this is a dupe for that completely. I use it everyday to do contouring. I should say that I am extremely fair so this probably shows up on me more than others. I can't really use bronzing powders usually, but I love this stuff.

Tango with Bronzer is a new line from NYX. Tango with Bronzer comes in five different powder shades that have all different color designs and shades within them and four bronzer shade sticks. I purchased the powder in Bronze Ensemble which is a split pan of two colors inside one being a little darker than the other and they lean warm with some shimmer. I love Bronze Ensemble it looks so summery and gives you a healthy tanned glow and not at all muddy or orangy. This bronzer is pigmented and blends nicely and is very smooth. All the shades patterns look so cute and even the outside packaging is cute with a tribal pattern on the top of the compact in a pretty gold color. This is on the expensive side for NYX, it cost $16.00(US) but you may find this brand on sale @ Ulta or Cherry Culture. I would rec this bronzer and I'm sure someone can find a shade that will work for them.
