I was looking for something good for shading or contouring, I prefer it to be not expensive, because it’s just for learning shading. I got Etude House Aloha V Line Slim Maker that is also good for contouring but yes, I want another one. And this Nyc Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny seems like a good option. Thanx to Reine Doll Shop for recommending it to me. 🙂

It is only available in one color: Sunny. It comes in a brown packaging, just like pact packaging. Thanx God it doesn’t look cheap.
Sometimes it is so hard to open and close. -,- But okay because of the price, I couldn’t expect too much. 😐
But soon as I opened the bronzer and saw the sponge, I was disappointed with it. The quality is really bad and it looks dirty, even when I haven’t used it at all. It’s too thin also. So I throw it right away because I don’t think I will ever use the bronzer using it -_-“.
The bronzer comes with a cute design just like its name: sun. It is a matte bronzer and the colour is really sheer. Fortunately, it’s not chalky at all so it is fine to swipe my brush over and over again. I’m using Masami Shouko Angled Brush or Sigma F40 to apply this bronzer.
Swatch on my hand. I swipe it for around 5 times so the colour can be seen on pic ._.
Same goes to these pics. I have to swipe it more than two times so that the colour could be seen on the pics. In real life, it looks so unnatural 😐 But it’s okay since I just want to show you the colour. You don’t have to be afraid that the colour will be too much on your face because it is really really sheer. Sometimes I get angry because after I apply it for two times, I still can’t see the colour on my face. Hahaha.. But yes, it has its positive and negative side, depending on how you want to look at it :p
What I like:
sheer colour but still buildable
What I dislike:
the sponge is suck -,-
Rating: 3,5 out of 5.
