NYX Tango with Bronzing Powder Review, Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Today I will be reviewing a bronzing powder from NYX. I never wanted to try it but when I saw the packaging I was sold. The packaging is so nice and it contains three shades in it. The name is also very cute and attractive. So inspire of the high price, I ordered it online. There are total 5 shades available and I ordered this because I loved the shades and the name. Let’s move to the review.

My Experience with NYX Tango with Bronzing Powder – When Leopard Gets a Tan:

NYX bronzing powder comes in a golden compact packaging and has two compartments. The upper compartment contains the powder and the lower one contains a bronzing brush. The lid shuts tightly and is travel friendly. The brush is of good quality and the bristles are soft enough to work. The handle is small but it’s good to be used whi9le travelling and for touch ups. It also has a mirror which is good while travelling. Overall, the packaging is cute, attractive and travel friendly.

I don’t know why they have named it as “When Leopard Gets a Tan”. The shade actually contains three different colors mixed in random manner as you can see in the pictures. It has light pearly finish pink color, second is a champagne color and the last one is dark brown shade. All the shades are very pretty to look at. All the three shades have slight shimmers but they do not look over the top. In fact the shimmers give nice glow to face.

Pigmentation is average and single swipe gives you light color. But you can build the color according to your complexion and requirements.  The product doesn’t look odd even when swiped multiple times. Since the pigmentation is average, the colors will not show up much on darker skin so I would suggest you to try other shades instead of this if you are dusky. The texture is smooth and it blends easily without much effort. There is no fallout and thus the product doesn’t get waste. It blends easily on cheeks. The staying power is average and it stays for 3 hours max. I was expecting good staying power from it considering the price and the huge claims, but it failed. It starts fading after 2 hours and then vanishes completely.  I was very disappointed as I expected so much from this. I don’t like reapplying makeup and who ahs the time to reapply it after every 3 hour?

I am not very satisfied with my purchase.

Will I Recommend NYX Tango with Bronzing Powder – When Leopard Gets a Tan?

No, I will not recommend as the quality doesn’t justify the price in any way. If you can sacrifice the average pigmentation and low staying power then you can give it a try. It’s not a must-have product so it’s better to invest money in some other thing.
