If you’re harboring bronze ambitions, this product is a must. This Tango wtih Bronzing Stix cream bronzer highlights, sculpts and warms the complexion, in one nifty and portable applicator.
NYX offers 4 different shades of its Tango with Bronzing Stix, which are cream bronzers/blushes/highlighters in stick form. This review is for the shade Tango and Highlight–a very pale, shimmery gold.
This product comes in a cylindrical, plastic container that twists to reveal more product. The cap snaps on securely.
Tango and Highlight has a cream formula that glides and melts onto the skin. The shimmer is very finely-milled, so the sheen you get on the surface of the skin is refined and subtle. The effect you get is pretty natural, though the product doesn’t “sink” into and become one with the skin as much as a cream highlighter with a liquid consistency would.
I don’t have any trouble with this highlighter fading. I can use it on the cheeks, down the nose, and under the brow bone. You can also use it on the body.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
You can apply this directly to the skin and then blend out with a brush or your fingers. You can also swipe the product onto a dense brush and then buff it into the skin. You can set the product with powder if you want, but this will dampen the highlighting effect.
For $8.00 you get 0.49 ounces (14.68 grams) of product. As a rough comparison, NYC Blushable Creme Sticks are $3.99 and contain 0.28 ounces (8 grams).
