Hey y’all! Well, the calendar may still say it’s spring, but Texas weather is already creeping towards summer! Temperatures in the 90s are quickly reminding me that any hint of summer color I had totally disappeared during winter! I figured it was the perfect time to add a new bronzer to my makeup routine, so I picked up NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium recently.
I debated between going with the light and medium shade after I swatched both. I went with medium because I was worried the light was too light, and I have an irrational hope that I will gain some resemblance of a tan over the next few months. This bronzer is definitely completely matte…shocker, I know. There’s no hint of shimmer. Any shimmer you see in the photos below is from my blush.
It was relatively easy to blend, but a little bit of product goes a LONG WAY. Seriously, one or two swipes is all I need for each cheek. A bronzer with shimmer would probably blend even easier, but I don’t think it would pack as big of a punch.
I haven’t really tried contouring, but I think this would be a great product for a powder contour. The fact that it blends well and comes in five shades means there should be a good color for everyone. If you’re not sure which shade is right for you, try to find a store that has NYX testers available. My local Ulta has tester products for the entire NYX line, so I’m able to swatch anything before I purchase it.
This bronzer only costs around $10, so it’s a pretty inexpensive way to amp up your beauty routine for the warmer months to come. Let me know if you have a favorite bronzer I need to try!
