Cheap Finds Makeup Review: New York Color Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder

A little while back I decided to challenge myself to do something a little unusual and very hard for me: Spend only $10 on makeup at a drugstore. Why? you ask... because I'm sick of having to shell out a huge load of cash for the most basic of makeup products. So I took on the challenge and went straight to the first drugstore I could find.

And if it had not been for that wonderful day, I would have never of found this magical pan of bronzer!

New York Color Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny

For me, bronzer is almost an everyday must-have product because I am very, very, desperately pale and I despise spray tans and self-tan lotions that leave me orange and streaky. I'm also not much of a fan of super shimmery and glittery face bronzers (Too Faced Bronze Leopard for example) because I prefer to just add color and contour with bronzer and add to my cheeks a shimmery blush. Therefore, this bronzer is great for gals like me who prefer a matte, tan look without excessive orangey-ness or shimmer and glitter.

(refer to for accurate color portrayal)

However, one downside to this brand is that there is only one color available of this particular formula, yet I feel it will work perfectly on anyone with a porcelain to medium-olive skin-tone when applied correctly. For others with darker skin-tones there is a different bronzer the brand carries that comes with two shades in one compact and has two different compact shades to choose from. 

As well, I recommend that this bronzer is used with a fluffy bronzer brush like the one pictured below that I use, or a contouring face brush instead of using the little puff that comes with the bronzer which deposits too much product and produces a very uneven application.

EcoTools Bamboo Bonzer Brush 

Overall, This bronzer is a steal for just $2.99* (*depending on location/store) and is worth every single penny spent!

The Stats:
 - Not Orangey Colored
 - Only 1 Shade Available
 - Applicator is Not Useable
 - Not Glitter or Shimmery
 - Great Low Price!

So, Have YOU tried this bronzer yet?

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.

I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
Many thanks!
