This is some great stuff! I can't believe I bought this years ago and am just using it. I use as highlight under my eyes and down the middle of my face. Gives me a great glow. I also like that it is not shimmery. It have a glow, but is also matte, if that makes any sense. I don't remember how much it was, but it was under $5.
I love this product! I am so sorry that I waited until this spring to try it.
Wet 'n Wild discontinued my previous bronzer a couple of years ago. I stockpiled as much as I could, carried one around for comparison, and tried every drug store brand available. They were all horrible! I finally picked this one up, and it is much better for me than the one I was using before (Tahitian Tan). There is less of it in the package, but the color is wonderful on me. It's closer to my skin tone.
I know that it's a no-no, but I use bronzer all over my face, instead of foundation and powder. I get compliments all day long, about how smooth and clear and pretty my skin is, which it definitely is not! I have dark marks and large pores from eczema AND acne, but others don't notice this at all with this bronzer. And it only takes a light layer.
The one I bought was the only one I've been able to find in stores. It seems like it may be discontinued, even though it's still on Wet 'n Wild's website. So I ordered 10 online at a great price. I hope to order more next payday.
BEAUTIFUL. I have medium skintone and i need to buff this in (only a DAB is needed on the brush) a little bit, but it looks more natural than my other, more expensive, powder bronzers. V pretty effect. Easy to overdo, depending on your skin colour. The minuscule shimmer particles are not at all apparent on the skin, look v naturally and subtly "glow-y"
I am very, very pale and use this bronzer for contouring and it's great! It's super ridiculously pigmented, and has a great texture- not powdery at all. A little goes a LOOOOONG way and I need to blend the heck out of it, but I'm very pleased with this, especially considering the cost. I also appreciate that it isn't overly orange, since I have cool toned skin. The packaging is pretty basic and not super sturdy, but if you treat it well then it won't fall apart or anything like that.
Overall, nice product, a little too shimmery, but nice.
A little goes a long way (had to learn that the hard way),
packaging is annoying to open usually.
The brush is pretty useless, it sheds.
it broke! i dont know if i dropped it, but it all crumbled and left a huge mess in my make-up bag :( im so sad
This review is for WnW's Coloricon Bronzer in #33837 Don't Be Shellfish. I'm NC40 and thrilled. Since I wear bronzer as blush year round, I need a product that is natural, long lasting, and complex enough so that the powders read as multi-dimensional in shade on the skin. The quality is excellent, the staying power excellent, the glow, everything. The powder is two toned with a clever design of the darker powder on the outside of the pallet, which means I can easily sweep a blush brush around the perimeter to get the brown and then come back to a shell and star-shaped part of the pallet to get the salmon colored highlight.
I often just swirl these together with a brush before applying. It gives my cheekbones a sort of burnished quality that I have not found in other bronzers high or low end. The package indicates that the product is a "special micronized blend of treated nylon powders to adhere to the skin and provide long lasting, blendable color. I don't know this technology, however it WORKS. Best of all it dies not break me out, which is a huge thing for my sensitive/aging/acne prone skin. I add a layer of finishing powder from Lucy Minerals on top for extra insurance. Everything about this product is perfect.
This was given to me by my sis, she thought it was too dark on her, but I think she didn't apply it right. At first I wasnt feeling it, I applied with cheap blush brush. Then got a Sigma F40 brush and now use this to contour, and I love it. It's not too shimmery, but highly pigmented, so little goes a long way.
i use this bronzer every day. i use it on my temples, and cheek hollows to warm up my complexion and add depth. i apply it with a 116 brush. this bronzer is extremely pigmented but it blends really well. i use MAC mostly so i am so glad to have found a great bronzer which is so inexpensive. i would recommend this to those who want to try out bronzer without buyers remorse if they dont care for it. i am a bronzer addict, and i think even if you love your high end bronzers, this one will surprise you.
SO cheap and SO pigmented. I picked this up because I needed a really dark bronzer for summer and this is perfect. The packaging is crap and so is the brush but for $2.99 I can't complain. The sparkles don't really show up and it gives you a great glow. I actually prefer this to a lot of my high end bronzers!
Okay, just to clear this up, Princess is where it's at. I don't know what they were thinking with Goddess, but it is a hot ass mess. Don't even go there. This stuff is nicely pigmented and it is almost impossible to apply it wrong (unless you're using the actual brush it comes with, because, as usual, the makeup brush it comes with is crap), the gold sparkles are subtle enough where you don't look like a teenager huffing body glitter yet present enough where it gives your skin a healthy glow. Hasn't irritated my skin. Dirt cheap ($2.99 at Rite Aid) and just wonderful. One of those products you hope people don't catch on to so you don't have to worry about fighting to find it on shelves. I'd say go for it. It's not like you have much to lose. It's 3 dollars.
