My Thoughts on NYX Matte Bronzer:

NYX Matte Bronzer in ‘Medium’

The packing looks simple but sleek and classy in Black casing. The tub casing is very sturdy making it travel-friendly. The bronzer is finely milled and buttery to touch. At the same time, it’s not brittle and doesn’t break off.

I’m really happy with the quantity for this price. I have been using it almost every day for subtle bronzed effect for the past 5 months and still haven’t made a dent.

I could have gone for a darker shade but I didn’t want to risk it looking muddy on me. The NYX matte bronzer come is five shades: Light, Medium, Deep, Dark Tan, and Deep Tan, offering good choices for dusky skin and dark skin beauties.

The shade ‘Medium’ is a tad light for me but I use it for subtle bronzing effect and for setting my cream contour. This shade and bronzer buffs out the harsh edges to give a seamless and polished look.

NYX Matte Bronzer - Hand Swatch

It does darken a bit when my face oils up so I use it lightly and wait for it to darken. It stays put for at least 5-6 hours. This is a decent staying power.

The price is great if you are buying it from U.S or in USD. But in India, it is overpriced as usual.


  • Completely matte
  • Affordable
  • Cruelty free
  • Decent staying power.


  • Contains Parabens
  • Overpriced in India


This is an awesome bronzer for dusky skin and am loving it. Next time, I will be going for a darker shade as well, for contouring.
