NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder Sunny

The amount of rave reviews I've read from across the pond of the NYC sunny bronzer, I just had to order myself one to try out. A week after the bronzer arrived from the USA I discovered Superdrug are now stocking the bronzer.....doh!

So the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny is a very popular drug store bronzer & is said to be a great dupe for Benefits Hoola bronzer but less than half the price.

When swatched side by side the two do look extremely similar, with Hoola being just a smidge darker & smoother to the touch. Sunny is also super pigmented so make sure to use a light hand. When applied to the face I think that NYC sunny bronzer can easily lean to the orange side if applied to heavily or not blended well enough. With a light hand & thin applications it does give a nice natural matte bronze to the face.

My all time fave drugstore bronzer is In fact also by NYC & is there 

Sun N Bronze Bronzing Powder in the shade 'montauke bronze'. Comparing the two together, 'Montauk Bronze' comes out on top for me. Even with its slight shimmer, I think it's easier to apply & never sways to the orange side. I opt for this bronzer over my Hoola bronzer any day.

So to round up, as Its hard to come by a good matte bronzer in the drug store & for such a reasonable price NYC Sunny is worth a try. I wouldn't rave about it like i do my 'Montauk Bronze', but then it's also not the worst bronzer I've tried.

£1.99 available from Superdrug

  2. I have this and fond that it's just a little too orange for my cool skintone, but for £1.99 I really can't complain can I?! Xxx
