NYC "Sunny" Bronzer

In the past couple of months I haven't been reaching for bronzer as much as I used to. For some reason my usual picks just weren't sitting right on my face and either made me look tangoed or just looked too muddy on my skin. So the search began for an alternative. On a random shopping trip with my boyfriend I spotted an NYC stand and decided to have a nosey. I remember ages ago hearing alot of hype about the Sunny bronzer and when I spotted it on the shelf there was only one left so I grabbed it to give it a try and I can honestly say I was not expecting to like this as much as I do.

Lets start with the packaging which in my opinion lets the product down a little bit. It just feels and looks extremely cheap (which in fairness it is) and very flimsy, so I would be nervous about throwing this in my handbag or travelling with it because it would probably end up smashed all over everything. But packaging aside everything else about this amazing! The powder itself is amazingly pigmented so a quick dab with your brush is plenty. It is quite powdery so be sure to tap any excess off so you don't end up with it all over yourself. The shade is a little bit warmer, and a bit more red-toned than my usual bronzer picks like NARS Laguna, so it gives a really natural bronzed, sunkissed look to the skin. I have been using my Real Techniques Blush Brush with this bronzer which is a recent rediscovery and for me, the two are a match made in heaven. 

I apply this to the top of my forehead, my cheeks and down the centre of my nose just to add some warmth to my face and also a bit of dimension. I don't use this so much for contouring as I think it would be too warm for my skintone but it is matte so it is definitely a good option if you wanted to give it a go! For €2.99 I think it is such an amazing bargain and worth a try! I think this may have snuck in as one of my favourite bronzers ever and it is most definitely worth the hype!


  1. This color was too warm for me, too - for contouring at least. A good cheap one though!

  2. My mam has this and I tried it when I stared contouring- waaaaaay to dark for me! x

  3. I love this bronzer too, I bought it from Poundland a while ago and I have used it almost daily. Such good value

  4. I don't use bronzers but this sounds brill for the price!

  5. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along.
    I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog, I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  6. Aw delighted you like the concealer, its a great dupe for Nars aright. Now I need to buy that lip pencil, love the neutral colour of it.
