NYC Sun n Bronze Bronzing Powder Review & Swatches

NYC Sun n Bronze Bronzing Powder Summer 2014

Coral Samba Bronzer and Rosa Rio are two new, limited edition NYC Sun n Bronze Bronzing Powder shades released with the NYC New York Color Cosmetics Samba City Summer 2014 Collection.

I recently fell in love with but was ever so disappointed with the pigment of the NYC New York Color Spring Petals Color Wheel but was DELIGHTED with the pigment on the NYC New York Color Sun n Bronze Bronzing Powders! You really need to check these out these out as they add lovely Summer color and warmth to your complexion!

Total cheap thrill!

NYC Sun n Bronze Bronzing Powder are available as a permanent part of the NYC New York Color Cosmetics Collection but these shades I’m featuring at Summer 2014 limited edition colors that will be popping up at drugstores now.

These have a quilted 3D raised look and feature five strips of color in three different shades. One of my favorite shades is Coral Samba which has a gorgeous, bright, vibrant shimmering orange mixed with a darker tanned bronzer and an almost purple-y brown strip of color. At a glance the colors look a little scary but blended together they create a very soft focused warm orange on my complexion that’s quite beautiful! This shade is also the pigmented of the two colors I tried and can act as either a blush or deepened and built for a more bronze-y look. The texture is silky but it does have a powdery kick up but nothing that’s messy as it blends out beautifully to a smooth, soft, even finish on my drier skin and wears for 8 hours before showing minor fading.

The other shade, Rosa Rio, provides more luminosity and a highlighted bronzed look. This shade is considerably less pigmented when comparing it to Coral Samba and features a lighter peachy coral, a shimmering champagne beige, and a deep, dark chocolate bronze. I don’t get a ton of color from this shade but it does add a healthy dose of radiance on my skin which means you can use it over blush to highlight with. The color is also long wearing, silky with a slight powdery kick up, and blends easily but does tend to accentuate drier areas so prep well prior to applying.

Wearing Coral Samba

Needless to say I loved the NYC Sun n Bronze Bronzing Powder (especially Coral Samba!) and give them a Muse Approval for purchase. These will set you back a mere $4.99 and give tired skin a gorgeous healthy Summer glow!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
