The winter months often have my skin quite light in comparison to what shade I am during the summer months so bronzer tends to be my best friend, year round – but certainly during Spring.  I have never been a fan of shimmery bronzers and while I do use them, I find that it just draws too much attention to the places I really don’t want to have seen.  My ideal bronzer would be one that blends well, matches my skin and is obviously matte, and while I have found some that I love, I find that this particular bronzer is one I pull for often.  Last year one of my favorite drug store companies released a matte bronzer and today I share the NYX Matte Bronzer with all of you.

Reasonably and drugstore priced, the NYX Matte Bronzer retails for $9.00 on their website and in various stores like Target and Ulta.  These compacts come in five shades (Light, Deep, Medium, Dark Tan and Deep Tan).  While I do not particularly think these shades would be great for those with really fare skin, I find that the color choices are really nice for those with my skin tone or darker.

Each bronzer has a Net Wt. 0.33 oz 9.5g and in my opinion – that is a lot of product for the price.  This bronzer is completely matte and very pigmented.  I not only use a light hand when applying it, but I must also ensure that I tap the excess off of my brush prior to applying as it can offer a very dramatic contour.  I own the color in Deep – which is a cool brown shade that still lends for a warm tone, which I like.  It lasts for several hours when applied directly to my skin and I do not notice any oxidizing, which is a big deal since many matte bronzers can do this on my skin.

Packaging is great – easy for travel and sturdy.  I have dropped my bronzer many times and it hasn’t cracked, chipped or shattered on me yet.  The compact itself also has a built in mirror which I think is great for traveling and taking with you though I do not think touch-ups are needed.  This bronzer has a soft, buttery like texture which I love, without out the dust that can often come with it.  I have applied with contour brushes and fluffy brushes and find that it blends out without issue and offers you a subtle or dramatic bronze and contour effect.  This product has easily become a favorite and go-to and I find I pull for it much more than my high end brands.

Whether you are looking for a subtle bronze, contour or dramatic definition I think anyone would enjoy using this product.  It’s affordable, which is a huge deal for me and it does the job of those that I have paid twice the price for.  This matte bronzer from NYX is one of those that I definitely recommend if you can find the shade that fits you best.  Unfortunately – my biggest con is that this is not available for all skin tones and I know my light Snow White skinned loves will probably not find a shade that will work for them.  But I definitely suggest giving it a run and see for yourself.  You can purchase this bronzer and more at or at your local Ulta or Target stores.

Have you tried the NYX Matte Bronzer?  If so – what shade do you use and if not, is it something you would try?

    I love that look, Honey. It’s such a subtle, shimmering bronze. Perfect!

  5. I’m not a bronzer person but this looks very natural on you.

  6. Right now I’m obsessed with my NARS Laguna bronzer, but I’m definitely in the market for a cheaper drugstore option. This would most likely work on my summer color, so I’ll be sure to check out out!

  7. I prefer matte bronzers as well. I like Laguna, Bourjois Delice de Soleil and Too Faced Chocolate Soleil but this looks like a value-for-money, perfect matte option. Love the glow on you.

  8. This shade is goddess material for you. I checked out the NYX bronzers but the tones don’t jive with my skin. I wish that one had, as I love the price point and the powders have a lovely texture. 😀
