NYX Tango with Bronzing Powder - When Leopard Gets a Tan : Review + Swatches

I bought this because of the awesomely talented Amy on YouTube (makeupandbeautybyamy) because she filmed a video showing how to fix your powders that aren't as pigmented as they used to be (that video also helped me save my beloved NYX blush in Taupe).  The powder she demonstrated this technique on was the NYX Tango with Bronzing Powder in When Leopard Gets a Tan.  I wasn't even sure of the color and didn't quite know if it was going to be a blush or a bronzer, but I ordered it anyway just because it's adorable... I mean, just look at it, how could I pass it up :)

It has a sheen, which I'm usually not such a fan of, but this summer, I've been getting a little bit more into the glowy look.  All swirled together, is comes out to a natural bronze-y color that is perfect for my light skin.  It's not too pigmented and dark, it's really easy for me to use.  The dark pink and deep brown give it an almost sunburned look, which I think looks very natural and flattering.  I've been into that almost sunburned look this season.  But I also enjoy using it in sections.  I dab right on the center pink spot and it comes out to a deep pink blush that I love now, but I know I'm going to love even more come fall and winter.  The light brown is actually more of a peachy color, which I just love.  I love me some peachy blushes!  It can be hard to get the section of color that you want (if you want to use it that way, which I don't really believe is the intended purpose of this product), but it's not overly pigmented, so you can swirl the brush and not end up with way too much product.  Plus the colors just look so great together, you're not going to be devastated if your peachy blush has a tad of brown in it.  It just makes it more natural looking, I believe.  I hope I'm making sense here. :-P

Even if I'm just going to open this to stare at how adorable it is, I love it.

Thanks for reading,
