New Favorite Bronzer!

I had always seen youtubbers rave about this inexpensive bronzer, but I just was not in the mood to get disappointed.  Most of them look muddy or orange on me, except the MAC one pictured below.  Last week, I came across it and just decided to buy it, and I am glad I did!

Surprisingly, it looks nice on me and it doesn't make me look like an oompa loompa. lol. Here are the swatches:

NYC Bronzer in Sunny and MAC Sculpt/Highlight 

Top: NYC, bottom: MAC

NYC bronzer "Sunny"

Both bronzers with flash 

As you can see, the MAC one is a little orangey on me, but I only use it to contour my face (whenever I need to do that) and it works perfectly.   The NYC bronzer has become my daily favorite. I use it all over the contouring parts but I just blend it in, so it looks natural.  I have yet to be all orange from this one, and I so use a brush that might pick up a little too much. 

I can honestly say that it beats the ELF bronzer/blush duo.  That was my bronzer but this one surpasses it. I was shocked. I have spent so much on bronzers without any luck that I had given up.  Little did I know this $2.72 one would be perfect.
Have you all tried this one? I was not a bronzer person at all, but with BB creams, I tend to look a little ashy, so I need to add some color back to my face :)


  1. This looks like a great matte bronzer. I haven't heard of this one. I love bronzers, but find them so hit and miss.

  2. i have the nyc bronzer but i didnt like it at first. i think i might have to give it another chance!

  3. I've been loving my Ulta mineral bronzer lately. Prior I had been using the Rimmel one...

  4. Admittedly in the photos it just looks like a bruise... does the highlight go well with the sculpt, on the MAC?
