N.Y.C. New York Color Bronzer REVIEW

I love a good bronzer, especially if it's cheap. And even more especially if it's cheap, matte, and not too orange-y. Luckily for me, NYC makes one that is all of the above. The full name of it is N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder. I have it in the shade 720A Sunny. The storse in my area only carry this shade, so I'm not sure if it's available in any other colors. I purchased mine from WalMart for a little less than $3. It comes in a regular ol' compact with a mirror and contains 9.4g (0.33 oz).  The compact closes completely and stays closed so it is portable and great for traveling.

It's a nice neutral bronze shade that's completely matte with no shimmer at all, which can be difficult to find in inexpensive bronzers. It's perfect for oily skin, but shouldn't be too drying for dry skin. If you do have dry skin, you might want to make sure you moisturize really well beforehand just in case it's too drying, or just test it to see. For me, it goes on evenly and lasts all day. It's not a super dark color, but also isn't too light and is buildable. There is a bronzer made by Rimmel London that I prefer the shade of a little bit more, but it also costs a couple dollars more, so I use this NYC one way more frequently.

I honestly love this bronzer! I love that it's inexpensive and is of great quality. I would definitely recommend this bronzer and will continue to repurchase it.
