|NYC Sunny Bronzer|
Following on from my review on the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer, today I have the popular NYC Sunny Bronzer to put to the test, so here's my thoughts on this affordable drugstore option.
Have you tried this bronzer do you rate it or hate it? Leave a comment down below or tweet me.
This retails for an impressive £1.99 for 9.4g! Such an affordable bronzer considering it comes in a compact with a sponge too.
The packaging is very simple, if not a tiny bit cheap looking, but as I mentioned above this really is amazing value for money for a compact with a mirror and powder puff too, although I probably wouldn't use the puff myself.
This has a lovely soft consistency that has a matte finish. Upon application there is a little bit of a fallout and the bronzer is a tad on the orange side to start with, but once blended out well, it gives a nice medium, matte glow to the skin. Note: I do usually contour only with bronzers to add a little colour to the skin, but for review purposes I have applied this all over the face, so you can see how it wears over a larger area.
LongevityI wore this for a whopping 13 hours and it did last most of the day. By 3.30pm it still looked reasonably good, even after a sweaty workout at the gym, but by 11.30pm it had faded quite a bit especially around the t-zone area.
For such an affordable bronzer this really was a fantastic bronzer, as not only does it have a handy mirror, it's a decent size to pop in your handbag for on the go touch ups. As I mentioned this was a tad on the orange side, but because of it's super easy bendability factor, this blended out to a lovely medium matte finish. Longevity was good but not exceptional, but with a little primer and setting spray, I'm sure this can last that little bit longer if you have a long day ahead.
I award the NYC Sunny Bronzer 4.7 out of 5
