Product Review: NYX Bronzer #1 Powder

After my very short love affair with NARS Laguna Bronzer, I was keen on finding a bronzer that will also work in contouring the face but has better staying power too. I found that in NYX Bronzer #1. Read on for the review.


Look at the gorgeous strips of different hues.


What I like:
- The texture of the powder is really nice and soft.
- Blends very well with the skin, not patchy nor powdery.
- There are shimmers but are not obvious once on the skin, thus, making it good for contouring as well.
- Does not look muddy or dirty at all.
- Pigmented and a little goes a long way.
- There is a slight hint of orange in it but it's not something that will really scream "BRONZER!!!" and the brown tone is way stronger than the orange tone.
- Staying power is good and lasts for hours.
- HUGE! Contains 33.61g of product and will definitely last for a long, long, long, long, long time. Unless you break it and decide to throw it in the bin, of course. :)
- Did not break me out at all, no allergic reactions whatsoever.

What I do not like:
- Not locally available.
- Can make you look sunburned if you apply just a little too much.
- Might not show up on darker skin tones.

In between: Those who do not like products made in China may not like that fact that it is made in China. But then, aren't a lot of cosmetics being manufactured in China nowadays? :)

Overall rating: 4/5

Will I buy again? I don't think I will need to purchase one in, say, for the next three years or so? This will last me a lifetime. But of course, I'm exaggerating when I say lifetime. And I have a Too Faced bronzer on its way to momma.

  9. I find NYX stuff is comparable to some of the bigger brands like MAC, I'm a fan of NYX personally!

  10. Hollie, this looks almost as natural as NARS Laguna. :P

    Michelle, it's HUGE! :P I think it retails for $14 when I google-d it and the quality is good too.

    Julie, I totally agree. MAC is too over hyped, IMO. :)

  11. Kim, it really does look natural that's why it can be used in contouring the face. :)

  12. I love the cute design and it doesn't look like it's screaming BRONZER. It's always a tricky situation with bronzers and me coz' it can really give me a sunburned effect hehe:-)
