NYC Sunny Bronzer vs Essence Sun Club Blonde Bronzer (swatch/comparison)
NYC Sunny Bronzer has been my go-to matte bronzer for a while. It works on my pale winter skin without looking too harsh or orange. I have been exploring the brand Essence lately and saw they had 2 new matte bronzers (blonde and brunette). I grabbed the blonde shade for less than $4 and thought I'd give it a try. It is 15g of product versus 9.4g in the NYC Sunny. After wearing the Essence blonde bronzer for a week I have concluded that I prefer it over NYC Sunny. Essence bronzer has a much smoother consistency and it easier to blend into the skin. I like to use it as a contour or with a big fluffy brush for an all over bronzer to warm up my skin a bit. I find that the Essence bronzer looks more natural in general. Even if you have really pale skin, you could use the Essence bronzer with a light hand to contour and it would look great. What is your favorite matte bronzer? Enjoy the swatches!
