Since summers have started, I thought it would be ideal to review my current favorite bronzer which I have been loving a lot and its the much-raved NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny!
Let a little sunshine into your life for cheap, with NYC New York Color Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder. It glides on easily for a sheer bronze glow that looks like you just stepped off the beach. It is easy to use everywhere and is perfect for quick touch-ups throughout the day.
My Experience with NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder – Sunny:
NYC Sunny is one of the most-raved bronzers from the drugstore line and is compared to the Chanel Soleil Tan which retails for 48$ whereas Sunny retails for 3$, wow you do the math!
NYC Sunny comes in a bronze-colored round compact which looks stylishly very attractive! I love the packaging, it does not look whatsoever! It comes with a plastic and a sponge applicator which is decent enough, but I like to use my brushes.
The shade “Sunny” is deceivingly a beautiful shade! Its warm enough to give a sun-kissed look but without any harsh orange tones. The pigmentation is sheer but very much buildable to achieve the desired look. The shade I believe will suit all Indian skin tones beautifully, but might not be visible on extremely dark skin tones. I am NC42 in MAC and I can use it, but someone above NC 45 may not be able to get it work.
I was highly surprised by the texture of this powder, its so soft and smooth, but no fall outs at all! Very impressive formulation! The powder is completely matte, so can be used as a contour shade as well, I personally use it for contouring a lot of times and works pretty well!
You can also use it to warm up your complexion, if you have a foundation lighter than your skin tone, use this powder on the perimeters of your face and it will instantly warm up your skin tone and the foundation will not look so ashy or light 🙂
The staying power is good for the price, it stays on me for about 5 to 6 hours which is fair enough but definitely can be improved. Overall, absolutely loving it these days and definitely recommend it to everyone.
