A lot of people that I know always come up to me and tell me they want that killer jaw line and defined cheek bones . Some people get plastic surgery, but some know that you can fake that killer jaw line and defined cheek bones with using a matte bronzer to contour. I have been on the hunt for a great bronzer that looks subtle but does define your cheek bones and jaw line! I tried the NYX Matte Bronzer hoping that this was the one.
The bronzer comes in 3 shades and contains .33 oz of the product and a little does go a long way!
Some of the main ingredients in this bronzer are : Talc, Mica, Mineral Oiul, Zinc Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Silica. It is cruelty free, hypoallergenic and lead free.
My Experience with NYX Matte Bronzer:
There are more things that I dislike about this bronzer more than I like. The first thing that I totally dislike about this is that the color is very unnatural. It looks really red (on pale skin) and orange( when you put it on darker skin). When I had tried putting it on my friend who has a bit more darker skin tone, it didn’t look as red but it did look more orange and it still looked very unnatural. Also, it wears off so easily. I had tried to see how long it would last on my skin so I had timed how long it stayed. Two hours after I had applied the bronzer it had already almost faded away. After four hours it had completely faded away. If I decide to wear this , I have to take it in my purse to re-touch it every few hours! Also, when I applied it, my family was like it kind of looked like I put red mud on my face. I was not happy hearing that.
Even though there are many bad things about this bronzer, there are a few good qualities about it. One thing that I do like about this bronzer is that it doesn’t appear cakey when you put it on. This bronzer is really pigmented so a little goes a long way. It is also really easy to apply when you use it with any type of brush. It does help with contouring and does make your jaw line and cheek bones more defined.
When applying this bronzer it was not cakey but it did show some of the bumps on my face. Also, when I apply it with a brush you don’t need to use a lot of product so it will last you a very long time. I have had it for about 1 year and I still haven’t been close to finishing it. This product is good for anytime throughout the day (you still have to reapply). It does look good in photography because it is matte but it still looks a bit red. If you have tried the blush by MAC called Blunt, it is not as red as that. I do think that if you get the lighter two shades it won’t be red. In that case I would recommend it. But this product was just a bit too red for fair skin.
Pros of NYX Matte Bronzer – Deep Tan:
- Inexpensive compared to other bronzers.
- Completely matte.
- Looks good in photos.
Cons of NYX Matte Bronzer – Deep Tan:
- Makes your face look bumpy
- Have to reapply often during the day
- Looks like red mud on your face.
I really do not like this product. There are more bad things than good things about this product. I do not recommend this product to anyone. I do think that if you are looking for defined cheek bones and jaw line then this is not a good product for you! I am still looking for a great matte bronzer that isn’t as red as this.
-Packaging-4/5 (wish it came with a brush, because you have to reapply every few hours)
Over all: 3.4/5
