Product of the Day- Bronzer Dupe

If you are anything like me Bronzer is a big part of your makeup routine.
I remember when I first started using bronzer in college and thinking wow, this
product is a game changer for how my makeup looks.
Since buying my first MAC bronzer in 2004 I have never looked back on going
without it. It is a product that instantly brings glow, warmth, color and health to your
skin. I use it in every season of every day. Love bronzer!
For the past year I have been pretty obsessed with NARS Laguna Bronzer sold
at Sephora. It's a great shade that works for so many different skin tones. The texture
is great and it blends nicely into your skin. I've gone through numerous compacts
of this little baby and it's been a staple in my routine.
UNTIL, I found something at Target a few weeks ago that caught my eye.
NYC has a bronzer I've heard a lot of hype on called Sunny. Seeing that it
was on sale for a whopping $4 I thought what the heck.... I'm going to try this out
and see if it compares to my NARS.
NARS Laguna Bronzer retails at Sephora for $36 and it described as a brown
with golden shimmer. However, I don't see any shimmer in it. To me it is a very matte
bronzer. Works great with fair-medium skin tones.
When I opened the NYC Sunny up the first thing I noticed is that it appeared
lighter than NARS. I was thinking this is not going to work as well with my skintone
being darker in the summer. But, once I actually applied it I was shocked to see that
it actually did put off a good color and worked really well.
I do think NARS is a bit warmer on my skin and probably works a little better for me
this time of the year, but the NYC Sunny is a phenomenal dupe.
If you are on a budget and in the market for a great bronzer this summer I would
suggest going to Target or Wal-Mart and picking this one up. For $4 you cannot
beat this with a flippin stick.
Do you have a favorite bronzer?


  1. I might need to try the NYC I just ordered MAC so I will see how that one does I have not tried it yet.

  2. Wow!
    This is great
