Review: I will write this introduction again as I did in my previous review, just in case this is your first time here. I wrote a little bit more information about LYS Beauty on my review of the Triple Fix Serum Foundation. If you would like to read it again, please click here.
All of their products are packaged in a white triangular box with small triangular cut outs and black typography. The brand is printed in a nude pink color and half of the box also have the nude pink color in a diagonal design. The actual color of the bronzer is printed on the side of the box. The compact is made of a sturdy reflective plastic in rose gold. While it is made out plastic, it has a nice weight to it. It does not feel cheap at all. It also has a mirror. The compact has a magnetic closure which I love. There are five bronzer shades available and I picked up the shade Courage which was described as tan.
There was a time in my life where bronzers were the only thing that I existed. I owned a dozen of them without ever owning a single blush. While my blushes outnumbers my bronzers these days, I still love a good bronze glow. The powder is nicely pressed but not too hard where it is difficult to get color pay off. There is some powder kick up but that is not a deal breaker for me. I usually tap the excess of off my brush before applying on the face regardless of the formula (i.e. pressed or baked). This bronzer has a lot of pigment, so if you want an intense bronze you can pretty much use either a fluffy or dense brush with this powder. I wanted a medium bronze but emphasizing the top end of the jawline. I used the Scott Barnes #66 brush. This brush is flexible and because of its shape you can use one end to intensify the pigment and the other end to loosely even out the product out into a natural, soft bronze. Honestly, you do not have to use the Scott Barnes #66 brush to get a nice result with this bronzer. Like I said, the powder is so pigmented and it blends nicely on the skin, any brush will work it just depends on how deep or light you want it. This also sits nicely on the skin. It does not look cakey and it is long-wearing. I have worn this bronzer and taken a nap within an 8.5 hour time frame and it is still there. I am obsessed with how this bronzer looks nice on the skin. With its $18 price point, this definitely competes with other higher end products out in the market. I highly recommend it! Love! Love! Love!
