Ok! Girls love glow, don’t we? For me, anything that gives me that gleaming beaming skin is always a welcomed addition in my collection. I have always loved NYX products, if only they were easily available in India. Only a few online websites stock NYX products, that too are out of stock most of the times. This Nyx bronzer was something I stumbled upon by chance, and after reading the claims couldn’t resist buying it. How did I find it on me? Read on to find out.

Product & Texture: The product comes in a smooth brown-golden packaging, made of plastic. The box is a little fat but feels sturdy enough. They have managed to put a mirror and a separate section for a puff as well. Packaging wise, I have no complains. It has a tropical print on the top, which is a nice addition, but it is painted on, so I think it will wear off over time. The product itself is a shimmery pressed bronzer with very smooth texture. The moment you put your finger on it, you realize how soft and pigmented it is. Full points for that.
What I have to say: I AM OBSESSED. This product got my love back to bronzers. I was into highlighters most of the time to get a glowy skin, but oh my god. The sun kissed glow that this bronzer leaves on your skin is OH SO Gorgeous. I feel like a tropical model after putting it on my face, err, minus the sexy figure 😛 The powder is very soft and smooth, very blendable and amazingly pigmented. A little will go for a long time and it stays decently on my skin. It comes in five shades total, all named after tropical areas. The one I have is called “Daydream of Maui”.
I cannot rave enough about this product. It has become my go to with almost every look. The color is almost my skin tone, only a tad bit darker, which is totally fine by me, because I love the glow it gives to my skin. I don’t use bronzers to contour my face, because I prefer something with grey undertones, also this one’s a very shimmery bronzer, hence, totally unfit for contouring. Though it is loaded with shimmer, it comes out as pretty glow on my skin, and never as a chunk of shimmer. But, it is insanely pigmented as well, so one has to be light handed with it. I use it on the sides of my cheeks, and a little on the sides of my forehead. It is so so smooth and blendable, I can use it on my entire face within 5 seconds, and barely 2 brush strokes would do the trick. I would suggest using a big fluffy bronzer/powder brush with this product, a dense brush might load a lot of product on your skin, which will take away the natural effect.
The staying power is nice too, though I wish it stayed longer on me. It is pretty much visible for 4-5 hours, which is nice as per me as I am never out for more than that time, but then you can always touch up if you want.
As the name suggest, it can be used all over your body. I do apply it on my legs, when I am wearing short dresses. It does make them look sexier.
