I am currently hoarding highlighters and bronzers. This Natio bronzer surprised me when I received it. This bronzer is not essentially a contour product. This can double up like a contour powder for me. Take a look:
For sun-kissed radiance in a flash, this luxuriously over-sized bronzer is a simple way to highlight facial features and brighten your complexion. Enriched with natural earth minerals, plant extracts and vitamins, it provides a long lasting bronzed glow and a hint of soft shimmer. Extra fine pigments provide coverage for imperfections and allow skin to breathe. Pure minerals help to continually nourish skin for supple, sun-kissed radiance. The Sunswept shade complements most skin tones.
My Experience with Natio Sunswept Mineral Pressed Powder Bronzer:
When I received this bronzer, two things surprised me the most. This pan is huge – I mean really huge, triple the size of a regualr compact powder! Another thing that took me by surprise is the soft, matte, rubberized lid of the case. Though it catches a lot of fingerprint and powder, I love it!
The powder texture is pretty soft and not chalky. The powder does not fly around when you dip your brush into the pan. The bronzer is huge, so clearly it can be used to add some tan and color to the whole body if you like. If you are really pale, you could use it to add color to the face on top of your foundation. The color of this bronzer is really not that stark or brown.
For pale skin, a bronzed look can be achieved by adding it to the spots that the sun hits directly.
For me, this would double up as a contour powder. This can easily be used on the sides of the forehead, the jaw line and the hollows of the cheeks. I am loving the color (I am around MAC NC 40 when I tan), I could use it to contour the nose too, despite this not being a very brown powder. This is soft enough in colour for contour purpose too.
There is no brush provided but the huge case itself is very attractive to me. Remember the color is more yellow-bronze toned than a contour powder in brown. This would be very similar in tone to the Lakme Sunkissed Bronzer.
The color stays on me for 3-4 hours on my oily skin and when blended well, it really adds warmth and definition to the face.

Cons of Natio Sunswept Mineral Pressed Powder Bronzer:
