Not very pigmented.

I didn't find this Maybelline New York City Bronzer to be very pigmented. I did try and build it up but this just wasn't the right shade for my skintone. It's just not dark enough to be a bronzer. It does smell lovely like cocoa but unfortunately it just wasn't right for me. It would be best suited to very fair skin tones. If this does come in darker shades I would purchase one of those as the formula is nice and the powder is micro-milled and it's quite affordable and available in chemists and supermarkets.

nice cool tone bronzer/contour

Cool tone light bronzer – I just started using bronzer in 2020 and people raved about this one. I’ve used this for several months and it is nice. I use this as a contour, and it is fairly foolproof. I use the lightest colour and it goes on nicely with a loose brush and is easily built up as needed. It stays put all day, I also use primer and lightly powder my face afterwards. The only issue would be the packaging. I’m very careful with all makeup yet the lid broke off after only having used it for a few months.
The Maybelline New York City Bronzer is a great drug store option for skin tones that don’t fit the one shade fits all colour options from other brands. The four colour shade range is impressive yet limited so still may not be completely inclusive. The texture is silky smooth, I believe because the powder is so finely milled.  The compact is reasonably sized, and the product is so far lasting really well. 
I'm very glad that I tried out this bronzer from Maybelline because it the powder is very fine and blendable without looking patchy. The bronzer sits well on top of my foundation making my face looking natural and healthy. The powder feels very lightweight and doesn't look cakey or dry on my skin. Such a beautiful formula at a super affordable price.
The pigmentation is really good and the product applies well. The pan is good for the price and you get a lot of product for your money. I found the product blended very well particularly near my forehead. On my cheeks it can be a bit patchy but other than that I think it is a great product but definitely use a setting spray to avoid a powdery look.
One of my favorite bronzer and contour from Maybelline. It worked well with any foundation I use. It glides easily and leave a beautiful shiny look on my both apple cheeks. It’s not patchy and you can touch up your look with just one simple dab.  I love how it has mild cocoa scent too. Great product! 
(Light Cool 100) I am a pale neutral skin tone and find it hard to get a pale bronzer that doesn't have a stark orange, red or pink undertone as I find these just don't work for me. I need a pale neutral bronzer and although this says Light Cool, it really isn't cool toned, I find it's more neutral to leaning warm. The powder is very smooth and silky and blends out like a dream and doesn't look dirty or muddy on my pale skin.  The only criticism I have is that you need to go in a few times with a brush to build to even natural coverage and I don't always have the time to build my products up over and over.   The finish is lovely, it's not a flat, chalky, matte finish, it has some life to it although I wouldn't call it a satin finish, it is quite a pretty semi-matte finish.  I do enjoy using it, just wish it was a little quicker to lay down the colour, although I'd prefer that to one that laid down too much!
I loved the Maybelline New York City bronzer and at under $17.00 it’s great value for money. I found this bronzer did much the same job as the more expensive brands. The pigment is really high quality and with four shades to choose from it’s easy to find a perfect match for all skin colours. It’s packaged nicely, looks quite luxe and is super easy to use either for contouring or just a sunkissed glow. I used this with a kabuki brush and it leaves my skin with healthy looking natural colour. I particularly love it on cheekbones to define and highlight and give a nice colour. It’s quite matte and doesn’t go greasy plus the addition of cocoa butter makes the product look quite natural and makes application smooth. It lasts really well, I can go all day still looking good. It smells delicious too. I only removed one star because this is not the absolute best bronzer iv used but it’s certainly a fabulous product that I would recommend
