Here is my experience with the NYX Matte Bronzer.

I really like this bronzer. It is really soft and smooth for a drugstore product. It isn't chalky or cakey. It applies well. It applies evenly and blends and builds well.

I really like the colour. I have the shade medium. It is warm without being orange on me. It isn't too dark for me. I want to try the light shade to see which I like better.

I do remember when swatching them in the store that light is more cool-toned. Whereas the medium is warm. Which is why I picked medium. I like warm bronzers more.

Swatches (Top with sunlight from a window with no flash, Bottom with sunlight from a window and flash.)

For some reason, the swatch looks a little patchy. It doesn't look like that on the face at all.

The bronzer wears well and lasted the day. It didn't cake up or flake off. I think it is a great drugstore alternative to Urban Decay's Beached Bronzer.

Was it worth the hype? I didn't really hear any hype about this before I bought it. But it definitely deserves so hype. It's a drugstore holy grail!

Was it worth the price? $9 at the drugstore might seem a little high but I think it's worth it. It isn't a perfect copy or UDs but it's pretty close. And $9 beats $28.

All in all, I love this bronzer! It is amazing for the drugstore! It's soft and smooth! It's warm without being orange and it wears beautifully!

It wears for a decent amount of time and doesn't look cakey or blotchy.

That's it for this review. Thanks so much for giving it a read! I hope you enjoyed it! Have you tried the NYX Matte Bronzer? What did you think? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
