AMW Reviews: BYS Bronzing Powder

Ah, the power of Bronzing, if done right, you'll look like a Sun Goddess!  
But why are we scared to use bronzing powders?  Maybe, it's the dirty, muddy look?  Bronzing powders can turn us into a shade or two darker?  Or maybe it looks too sparkly under the sun we may end up looking oily?

There are so many factors that could stop us from using one of the most loved makeups by actors and actresses.  Why?  Bronzing powders give a healthy look and can hide freckles, the best part?  It can also give you an instant "slim" overall look!

IF, you are using the right bronzing powders meant for your skin tone!

Today, I will be reviewing a bronzing powder that's unique in terms of its "physical" look and of course, the color!  This is one of the lightest bronzing powder I own which I believe would work really well as a natural bronzing powders for medium to fair skin tones and could work as a highlighter for medium dark to dark skin tones!

AMW says ---
  • Very cute sun design that can brighten up my day each time I pull this out.
  • Build-able intensity.
  • Very natural effect.
  • Doesn't give a dirty or muddy look like other bronzing powders.
  • Can double up as an eye shadow.
  • Price.
  • The product is Made in P.R.C. (People's Republic of China) which could be a con for others. 
A very natural, light bronzing powder with build-able intensity.

  • Can be applied as regular blush for a more natural look.
  • For an overall sun-kissed look, take out a big fluffy powder blush and apply BYS Bronzing Powder all over your face with light hand motion.
  • Fair skinned users must apply with light hand for a more natural finish.
  • Medium to dark skinned users may apply more.
  • Re-application may be needed within the day for people with oily skin.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who wants to create a healthy, just came out under the sun look without going under the sun!

Swatch on Hand
The color is almost golden than "brown". 

Since I'm officially on my 8th month pregnancy and my round cheeks are really starting to show, I'm glad to use the BYS Bronzing Powder on a daily basis to give some "life" and "energy" on my "haven't seen the sun for too long face".  It also gives a nice contour and dimension I want!
Have you seen BYS cosmetics on counters?
Would you give the BYS bronzing powder a try?

I am very happy I don't need much hand control when I use this particular bronzing powder due to its lighter nature.  I can imagine myself using this as a blush on a daily basis until I get back the natural contours of my face! *lol*
