I bought this after reading several recommendations about it. It's a bronzer, but is actually very light in color. I actually use this not as a bronzer or highlighter, but as a finishing powder, once my makeup is complete. I love the results, to me, it's very similar to the Hourglass Ambient Light finishing powders. It provides a bit of a glow, but is not sparkly. Actually, I think it is not glowy enough to be a highlighter, that's why I don't use it for that purpose. Anyway, it's great and I love it!
I heard Emily Noel talk about this in her Emily Awards for winning the drugstore highlighter section, so I knew I had to try it. It's huge, paid five bucks for it, so I was eager to try it. Upon initial swatch, I wasn't too impressed because not much of a glow came off of it. Using it on my face, I see a bit of a glow but from a highlighter, I want more. I won't repurchase it just because there are other things I can get that may work better, but if you want a really sheer highlighter for really cheap, then I would recommend this.
i got the reserve your cabana bronzer and it works amazing! I dont really use it as a bronzer though,but more of a highlighter/powder foundation. I do this bc the color pretty much matches my skin tone. What i do is spot conceal my blemishes and use this all over my face. It gives my face an even glow, and it literally stays on all day. I also love that it has an spf!
I bought this bronzer in shade 743a reserve your cabana for about $4 at Walgreens. I have very fair skin so most bronzers look orange or ruddy on my skin, but this bronzer looks fantastic. It doesn't have huge chunks of glitter or make my oily skin look like a disco ball. It reminds me of Mac's mineralize skin finish natural except for the price. It says this is a bronzer but I think it gives more of a glow to my skin. I apply this with a fluffy powder brush on the high points my face for little bit of a glow I wouldn't recommend putting this all oversince it might start looking a little over the top. The packaging does break pretty easily and it is pretty big and bulky (not ideal for travel) but you get a ton of product, about 13 grams. This does not cause me to break out and lasts a long time! I would recommend this to the fair skinned ladies or someone looking for a Mac mineralize skin finish MSF dupe. Also this has SPF 15! I have gone through 3 of these babies and s love them :)
I purchased this today at the Rite Aid 40% off Wet n Wild sale. The color is Cabana~ which is the lightest of the 3 shades. I am not a bronzer person at all since I am fair and don't tan. Most bronzers look awful on my skin. I really like this although oddly enough I could use the next darker shade. It goes on very nicely, not shimmery or glittery. It is a huge size for the price ( $4.99 ) at reg. price. It is not chalky or cheap feeling, glides on very nicely. Even though this color does not give me a "bronzed" look. I think it will work very well for me over top some darker foundations I have as a finishing powder. I will certainly be buying the next darker shade though and possibly mixing them for the right color for me.
