Hope you all are doing well, I have this lovely bronzer to share with you all. Bronzers are something I have just started experimenting with, but I already love them. I like how they give slight definition and glow to the face. Let’s see how this one performed.

My Experience with NYX Bronzer Daydream of Oahu:
The packaging is very cute looking, it comes in a round-shaped compact which is golden bronze in color and there is actually a picture of an Hawaiian girl on it 😛 The case is small and fits in the palm easily, and has a push button to open it making it perfect for traveling. It has two compartments – the first one has a small round puff for application and on the other side, there is a mirror attached to it and below is the bronzing powder. The puff looks fine, but I prefer using a separate brush with it.
The bronzer is available in 5 shades and I have the second shade – “Daydream of Oahu.” It is a medium golden brown shade with slight copper tones to it. The color is very balanced, it is not extremely warm and ashy at the same time. It has a satin finish, there are no shimmers present, but it gives a slight sheen and dewy glow to the skin. It is not an everyday product for me, but perfect for parties and night time.
The shade is exactly two shades darker than my face. It is not ideal for contouring the whole face as it is not very dark and matte, but it works well for bronzing and giving slight definition when used under the cheeks. But I feel the color is very multipurpose and universally flattering. It would be a good bronzer for light to medium skin tones and for darker skin tones, it will double up as a bronzy subtle highlighter. It is like a blush bronzer and highlighter all in one for me. I limit using it only to cheeks because of the slight sheen it has. It gives the most gorgeous bronzed sun-kissed glow, just like JLO or Victoria’s Secret Models, trust me, this product is just perfect for that. The slight sheen it has is very subtle, most of the time shimmery products highlight the pores on my oily skin and also tend to look a bit too shiny after some time, but this one is very subtle.
The texture is smooth and soft, there is slight fallout due to the soft texture in pan and when picked with a brush but tapping the excess of the brush before applying it solves that problem. It is nicely pigmented and just a touch of brush in the pan picks up enough product, little goes a long way with it and it works well with layering, and blends like a dream, but it is still very buildable.
It lasts easily for 6 hours on my extremely oily skin without getting too shiny or oxidizing, which is a great for me as most of the times bronzers oxidize on me and shimmery products look extremely shiny over a few hours, but not this one! All in all, I am really glad I tried this as I absolutely love this product.
