N.Y.C Bronzer

Hello Loves,
Today i want to talk and rave about this new product I have been using for a while. Now its not new to several of you but to me it is. I wasn't big on bronzers and contouring and all that good stuff. But now that I am pregnant my face has gotten a little on the rounder and paler side. Well the pale comes from it now being fall and im barely in the sun.
For a while I was using E.L.F bronzer and Mac blush in Springshine to give my face some color. These are great when it comes to giving you a more earthy, bronzy look but some bronzers are not good for contouring and these two are definitely not since they both have shimmers. I did some research online to see what would be best as both bronzer and contour color. And the winner was N.Y.C Bronzers, now it depends of course what skin color and what not, so I decided to go with the color Sunny, I watched tons of youtube videos and when I watched Makeup by Leina and how she loved it well i just had to give it a go!

This particular bronzer is matte and is the perfect color for those who are MAC NC 30ish. Im a NC35 so its the perfect shade. It does not look muddy on me at all. And when i apply it to contour, it does its job without looking to harsh and seeing where u created that "Illusion" =]
Some people complained on Makeupalley that its goes on so light therefore hitting pan with a couple of uses, hunny if thats the case then sunny isnt for you babe you must get a darker shade duh!
I barely do a few swipes with the brush and theres more than enough product for both cheeks.
The downside to this is that its hard to find. I looked everywhere for it and found 2 left at kmart so i snatched up one but i think im gonna go back to get the last one for backup. For only $3 and some change its totally worth trying.

What do you use to contour and bronze up?? I would love to read everyone's thoughts



  1. This bronzer isn't hard to find where I live, and I yet have to give it a try. I keep hearing great things about it!

  2. I love sunny. It's the perfect matte bronzer that isn't too orange or muddy looking.

  3. This bronzer is really nice, I like it a lot! :) Ohhh congrats on the pregnancy girl :D
