NYC Bronzer broke me out! :(
Out of all the products that I use daily, bronzer was never one of them. Although it probably should’ve been, considering how pale I am year-round. I recently decided to give in & try one.
I’ve read so many good things about NYC’s “Sunny” Bronzer (it has a rating of 4.1 out of 5 on Makeup Alley) and it was cheap (under $3!) so I thought, “What the heck? Why not?”
It comes in a cute compact with a circular sponge (which is useless if you ask me. I prefer to use a brush). It added the perfect amount of warmth without making me look orange or glittery.
Now, I generally only applied it to the hollows of my cheeks and my temples. About 2 weeks later, guess where I started breaking out? Yep, my cheeks and temples! I almost never break out in those areas. And they weren’t the normal pimples that you can pop and they dry up in a week. They were tiny, hard little bumps that resemble milia. You can imagine my frustration. As I’m typing this, I can still feel the little patches of bumps on my cheeks.
I wish I could love this bronzer, but it looks like I’m back on the hunt again. :(
