NYX 'When Leopard Gets a Tan' is the first piece of NYX make up in my collection. I find we are limited in what we have access to here in Aberdeen and have never seen NYX in shops - unfortunately.
When I was contacted to review something from 123hairandbeauty.co.uk, I was delighted to choose an item from their NYX range.
'Tango with Bronzing Powder'
NYX say - 'It takes two to tango but just one of our brilliant bronzing powders to kick start your look. Our mosaic bronzer shades create a golden glow on the face and body like you’ve just returned from a Caribbean getaway. Sun-kissed never looked this sexy or healthy'
A well proportioned bronze compact with good sized mirror and hidden compartment which is home to a little blusher brush to complete the set. I like the bold motif on the front, extremely feminine - a nice chic design.
I prefer to use my own blusher brushes because I like them best for application but I would use the brush that came with this to sweep any excess dust from my face.
What I think?
|Too Faced Pink Leopard|
I was also curious to try it because I previously owned the Two Faced 'Pink Leopard' Compact and I think I have found a near perfect
NYX When Leopard Gets a Tan is made up of 3 different colours, brown, beige and a pink this combination on the skin gives a a subtle bronze and highlighted look. It is very sheer and doesn't go on too thick. The pink can also be used to highlight your cheekbones and under the brow bone without using the bronzer - if so desired.
The only real difference between When Leopard Gets a Tan and Pink Leopard (besides the price tag) is that I find Pink Leopard had more of a glitter/shimmer content to it and if this is something that puts you off a product then the NYX version is definitely a better choice (unlike the Pink Leopard, it has a subtle hint of shimmer but it is definitely has a more matte finish). I prefer this as I don't like products that contain too much shine.
I mentioned before the price, compared to the Too Faced Pink Leopard which retails at £22.00, NYX When Leopard Gets a Tan comes in at a more affordable £10.00. You can order this here from 123.hairandbeauty.co.uk.
I noticed when browsing, new customers are entitled to discount - if you quote the promotional code at checkout 'NEW10' you will get a further 5%, got to love a bargain.
Really looking forward to trying more from NYX was a great item to sample.
