NYX Tango With Bronzing Stix | Merengue Flush & Bronzy Lambada

If there’s one place I most appreciate shimmer and shine, it’s the cheeks. And while I typically gravitate towards satin textures and subtle glow, some days I just want shimmer. When the mood strikes, I’ll often reach for the NYX Tango with Bronzing Stix. These stick-style creams impart high shine that work as blush and illuminator in one. I’ve had these for over a year and love them. I noticed they were no longer available on NYX’s website, so I wanted to post about them while they’re still available elsewhere.

OK, how gorgeous are these colors? I just think they’re SO pretty. I have two of the four shades: Merengue Flush and Bronzy Lambada.

  • Merengue Flush: a warm peachy pink with tons and tons of gold shimmer
  • Bronzy Lambada: an orange-y copper with gold shimmer

These are creams, but they’re not too creamy. They have somewhat of a waxy feel, which gives them a boost in staying power.

Even though NYX calls these Bronzing Stix, they aren’t really what I’d call bronzers. Bronzy Lambada and the two shades I don’t own are all variations on gold and bronze-tones, so they can add an overall warmth to your look. But they work best when applied as blushes and highlighters, as opposed to typical bronzer application.

    Hey Catherine, these two look neat! I like Merengue Flush more. It’s a lovely blush shade! How well do these last on you?

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      Hi Sunny, these actually last a little better than typical cream blushes on me, because they’re not TOO creamy. But I do have fading throughout the day… though on my oily skin, I expect it! ♥

  • LifeOfBun

    Love the glow in them!

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      Me too! Really fun for summer, especially ♥

  • Christine

    The Merenge Flush looks beautiful! I was looking at these on Cherry Culture the other day, but was didn’t really know anything about them, so thanks for informing me! :)

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      My pleasure, Christine! I’d definitely recommend them ♥

    I love the Merenge! Both a very beautiful. The finish and style is so muc similar to the Nars Multiples! Sometimes a girl loves a little shimmer ;-)

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      Haha exactly :) They do sound/look similar, though I don’t own the Multiples so I can’t say personally. I know I’ve seen Merengue Flush compared to the Orgasm Multiple ♥

  • Martha

    These look very pretty! I do like a little shimmer on the cheeks, especially in certain lighting conditions–it really gives such a pretty glow to cheekbones!

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      Agreed! In bright sunlight, these do have quite a bit of visible shimmer, which I don’t always like, but in summer time I seem to not mind ♥

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Wow these are really pretty! Love the sheen they have! I bet they look lovely and glowy on cheeks!

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      They really do, they work well as highlighters too, especially the pink one ♥

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

    It’s so pretty. Definitely pick it up before it’s gone! ♥

  • moxiereviews

      Thanks, Moxie! ♥

    Gorgeous swatches! I usually stay away from shimmer or sheen, but these two look tempting.

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      I have to be in the mood for shimmer, but when I am, LOVE these ♥

  • TinaBowling

    Oh wow I’m embarrassed to say I think I have a couple of these tucked away somewhere that I have never used. I need to get them out and put in my daily bronzer stash!
