I wanted to find a somewhat close dupe for my Benefit Sunbeam highlighter or my Benefit Watts Up highlighter. This is closer to the Watts Up but lighter but gives the same effect and a little less shimmer. Ever since I got it I have been using it everyday to highlight my cheekbones and my t-zone! You get so much product for the price you pay.
I am cool toned and pale, and I love this bronzer. It works as a highlighter or lightly dusted all over for a nice glow. It is very pigmented. It is messy to use but the look is worth it. Makes my skin glowy but not sparkly. I hate the packaging though, the domed cover makes it very bulky.
Tons of product in this thing! It's a very pretty highlight for $3. You can't go wrong! It is powdery I will say but just tap off your brush before application to fix that. I'm in love.
This is not a bronzer but rather a highlighter for my medium skin tone. It does not make my oily skin look greasy which I was afraid of initially and instead leaves me with a subtle glow that is very nice on my cheeks or on my shoulders. It also has decent staying power and pairs well with my foundation without causing it to look like a powdery mess. I either use my kabuki brush or a large powder brush to apply. The huge compact should last me awhile as well.
I am absolutely smitten with this highlight! It just gives you that "glow" you need on your face. I love using it on my nose after countouring it and at the top of my lips. It blends in nicely. However, I don't necessarily like the packaging of this product.. it's really big and bulky. It's not something you can take with you anywhere. Also, the product itself tends to be a little bit on the powdery side, therefore you might need to tap it off more times than needed to get the amount you want. Because the product itself is on the powdery side (like most of Wet 'n' Wild products) be careful with it and make sure that you don't drop it or bang it too hard as it WILL break. But, that's a little price to pay for with such a great product like this. Nothing beats the price too - $5!
This is a lovely highlight shade. It's not too shimmery or sparkly, it's quite subtle. It highlights without causing me to look oily. It lasts for well over eight hours. The shade is lovely, I love highlighters that have a champagne/beige undertone. Can't beat it for the price. It's nice that such a beautiful highlight is accessible at the drugstore. It may be worth noting that it is a bit powdery, and my brush kicks up quite a bit of excess. There's so much product and it's so inexpensive that the waste isn't really that significant, but it would be preferable if it was a little less powdery.
In no way can this be called a bronzer. When I apply it to my extremely pale skin, it doesn't even show up. I honestly think it becomes translucent once taken out of the pan. It's not shimmery enough to be a highlighter, so I don't know what the hell I'm going to do with it. Probably end up using it to set my liquid foundation when I run out of translucent powder, which is not going to be for a very long time. I know this is super cheap in the US but I paid AU$10.95 plus shipping for it so I'm a little annoyed that it's totally useless as a bronzer.
Most bronzes have too much sparkle in them which make me look like I'm off twilight! But this bronzer is PERFECT it does a good job of giving a nice bronze colour without making me look orange or like I have an unnatural skin colour. And it was a good price!
I love this as a highlighter. It gives you a nice natural looking highlight without looking like a disco ball. Perfect to use for photos. Love this!!
New HG highlighter!
I cannot believe how wonderful this product is and it only costs a bit over $3!! How crazy is that.
I also found a good ways of mixing it with my loose powder to achieve a soft glow over my Covergirl outlast 3-in-1 stay fabulous foundation. Since the foundation makes my skin matte, I like the combination between a loose powder mixed with this highlighter over the foundation for a natural glowy look.
