The bronzer retails for INR 850 available on the link – http://www.nykaa.com/nyx-cosmetics-matte-body-bronzer.html?ptype=product&id=42147&q=undefined&skuId=42148
. I use the bronzer for soft contour to my face it is medium pigmented and can be build up . The bronzer looks quite ashy but it has warm undertones which makes it suitable to bronze up olive/yellow undertone skin tones . For the best results I use a real techniques contour brush to apply while making a fish face.You can use this product in a multiple ways like to intensify the eye crease,to contour lips,as a brown eyeliner mixed with duraline gel.
In depth review – https://fianafashionforward.wordpress.com/2016/08/30/nyx-matte-bronzer-review/
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
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.

I love this matte bronzer as its super pigmented and can be used for contouring as well . It's not chalky or muddy as it blends really well and gives amazing finish to whole makeup

The product is NYX Matte bronzer in the shade Fair . For Indian Skin tone I would suggest my bronzed goddesses to go for the dark or medium shade .
To buy the product for my Indian friends you can visit this site Nykaa.com . I am attaching a direct link to the product – http://www.nykaa.com/nyx-matte-body-bronzer.html?root=search&searchterm=nyx%20matte%20bronzer&type=product&ptype=product
You should be very careful of dupes . They are doing good rounds in the Market now . So my bronzer came with a matte finish packaging . And a sticker with the NYX product . Please do not buy products from unauthorized dealers because you don’t want any breakouts .
NYX has launched its first store in Bandra West Mumbai Shoppers Stop . They are soon expanding to Delhi and other metropolitans.
The product swatch of the Bronzer.
This is three times swatched on my hand . It feels really soft and buttery in texture. It blends like a dream on the skin to give a contour on fleek look .
Formulation and How to Apply
The powder is so fine and smooth that it gives you an airbrushed look . The wear is similar to the Hoola Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics . However you have to apply it again and again to build up the color intensity . That is why I suggest you to purchase the medium or dark shade.
For the best application use a contouring brush . I use the Elf bronzing brush but you must use a contour brush and blend it to blur out the harsh lines . I would suggest using the real techniques contour brush as they are of great quality . You can buy it here – https://www.flipkart.com/real-techniques-flat-contour-brush/p/itmegahwdtc4meuz?pid=BAREGAHWDZPPGEMZ&srno=s_1_1&otracker=search&lid=LSTBAREGAHWDZPPGEMZCVJVDD&qH=a561f70ef816e2d1
. For contouring cheeks you must apply the bronzer on the cheekbone and blend it in upward motion . To contour the Double chin blend it on the jawline with short strokes . To slim down the nose use an eyeshadow blending brush and make two parallel lines and blend them for a razor sharp nose .
The product lasts for a good 4 hours without a primer .It will last for 6 hours with a good quality primer and base. It fades away gradually . The texture is smooth and does not feel cakey at all .
NYX Matte Bronzer retails for INR 850 . This is not a drugstore product in India . NYX sells quite as a drugstore brand in the United States, which is a low for Indians . However the quality of the product is quite amazing and can give any high end bronzer a tough competition .
Tip -Always remember that if you are carrying this in your purse there are chances it might break so I suggest to keep in the packaging box it came with . This will ensure that the product doesn’t break(your heart).
A pitfall which I would like to mention is the packaging the whole box gives the illusion of a bigger product which is smaller in width and a bit daunting . The product needs to built several times which might annoy you if you are in a hurry. There is no glitter or sparkle which gives a clear matte finish .
I will also do a youtube video using the bronzer soon . So make sure you are subscribed to my channel . Link – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZyNdMzC4ZHwiD9hOuGRRvw
