NYX Body Bronzer in Daydream of Maui – Review and Swatches

2

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.

What company says: Get all shimmery with NYX Body Bronzer Daydream. A baked bronzer gives you a natural glowing skin. It is easy to use and sets very well.

  • The tiny shimmer particles add a tint of shine on the skin.
  • It can also be used to contour the face and body.
  • It is long lasting, so no need for touch ups.
  • It is enriched with Vitamin E and mineral.
  • Available in five shades.

Price for Qty.: Rs. 700 for 10 Gms.

 

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.

 

Summing up the Pros and Cons.

You’ll heart it coz:

  • It is super pigmented
  • The texture is very smooth and blendable
  • There are 5 shades available, you can find the one that fits you the best
  • Gives a very glamorous glow to the skin
  • You can use it on your legs, arms, anywhere you want to bring in attention
  • Not too pricey and the quantity will last you forever.

You might hate it coz:

  • Prone to breaking if mishandled, I broke mine as soon as I took the pics, had to press it again with alcohol
  • Packing is a little fat
  • NYX products are not widely available in India

Overall, if you love that sun kissed glow on you, I highly recommend this product to everyone. If you can find it anywhere, do give it a look. Though I would want to highlight that it is not meant for contouring at all, in case you want a bronzer for that purpose.

    Sakshi, your review is really helpful. I am gonna try my hand at this.
    Tell me something, a bronzer can be used with a blush to get those cheekbones to be highlighted, right?
    Can I use my blush brush for the same? or a contour brush?

      Hey Ruth, thnx for visiting my blog. Glad to know you liked my review.
      The bronzer, if shimmery, like this one, can be great as a highlighter on medium to deeper skins. A blush brush would work great to apply this. Given it is a powder product, I would recommend a brush which is not too huge, so that you can control the application. Hope it helped 🙂
