When Tabs was on safari in Tanzania earlier this year, he met a serval who told him the tale of a leopard named Nix (pronounced NYX), who spent every day sunning himself way up high in the branches of a big acacia tree.
Later, when he got back home to Novato, Tabs took the story and turned it into his first book, titled “When Leopard Gets a Tan.”
And that’s where NYX got the idea for Tango With Bronzing Powder in When Leopard Gets a Tan.
Okay, okay, that’s not true at all. But it sure would have made a great story, right?
When Leopard Gets a tan, one of the new NYX bronzers for fall, reminded me of Too Faced Pink Leopard from the pan, but once applied the color’s more bronzy, less peach and less shimmery — a soft sheen as opposed to Pink Leopard’s frost.
Doesn’t NYX Tango With Bronzing Powder in When Leopard Gets a Tan ($16) look like Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzer ($12.50) from here?

It’s expensive for drugstore beauty, but this big cat purrs with surprisingly soft grains of soft glow-imparting bronze. If you like the color and can bring yourself to sully the pretty pan, you might give this cat a home.
