I am fair skinned and most bronzers just don't work on me (orangey), so I was excited when I saw this at the drug store because it's such a light color, a creamy beige. The only problem I have with it is the shiny irridescence, which isn't extreme but it's enough that I feel a bit self conscious about it for everyday wear. What I've been using it for, however, is an all over netural eye shadow to tone down my pinkness, and it is reflective and adds brightness to that area. I love, love, love the color. Maybe I would use just a smidge on my face as a highlighter for evenings out in the summer. But for everyday use I'm very pleased with this on my eyelids. I would definitely buy this again but the round palette-full is so generous that I don't think I will have to.
I love this "bronzer", I use it as a highlighter instead. It is perfect for my nc20 skin; not too shimmery. I had been looking for the Hard Candy Tiki highlighter because of all the great reviews and couldn't find it anywhere. Later I learned its been discontinued. So I came across this at Target and fell in love and it doesn't hurt its so cheap! I think I'm going to buy a backup.
For reference: nc25-27, warm yellow undertones.
I discovered this "bronzer" through emilynoel from YouTube. This product is awesome. I also own Mac's soft n gentle and thebalm's Mary Lou manizer but I always reach for this. I don't know why they call this a bronzer because its soooo light so i use this as a highlighter. Packaging is huge but it's sooo inexpensive with a lot of product. Shade is a pale beige/gold. For a drugstore product, quality is pretty good. It's not chalky and it gives your face a really nice sheen without being too glittery/frosty. Not sure when I'll ever hit pan but when that time comes, ill definitely repurchase this!
While summer is an easy time to slap on any old bronzer, I don't get on very well with them during the winter. The olive undertone in my skin really comes out when my skin is pale and I have to be so careful to keep colours from being too cool or too warm (for reference, I am NC20 at the moment).
This is the lightest bronzer I've seen in drug stores and I came across it by chance, with such a low price I thought why not!
I'm so glad I bought it. This gives me a healthy glow that looks natural - not muddy or orange - just lit from within and fresh. It lasts extremely well and doesn't cause any skin reactions.
I recently tested the MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul and, while it's pretty, it pulled a little too orange on my skin and the hefty price tag wasn't worth it for a 'maybe' product. I would say this is a wonderful dupe.

I must thank Make Up Alley once again for introducing me to yet another amazing product. I would have never even known about this if it wasn't for the site! I am so happy I stumbled upon this. I am obsessed with highlighters - my favorite is MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft N Gentle or Hard Candy's "Tiki". Sometimes I wear a lot of "shimmer" for example, I wear Hard Candy's blush in "honeymoon" a lot and since I do there's already a lot of glitz and glamour going on but I still want to Highlight without overdoing it. This is the perfect product for that! It gives me a gorgeous candlelit glow without being overly shimmer or overpowering. Believe me, I'm pretty out there when it comes to make up and I don't mind "overdoing" it, but this is the perfect product to balance your face when you have heavy eye make up or shimmery blush. I absolutely LOVE this, I think I may love it even more then my other two highlighters which I swear by because it is so amazing. The texture is almost like butter, I honestly just swipe my middle finger in it and place it on my cheekbone and bring it up to my temple, sometimes my nose or cupids bow depending on how I'm feeling - layer if necessary, then blend out with a large powder brush. The finished product is so gorgeous. I highly reccomend this to anybody and everybody! This is also the perfect highlighter if you are just now trying out highlighting. Love !
I bought this based on the reviews from MUA. I think is excellent if used as a highliter. There is some glitter, but I can't see it after I apply it to my face. It just gives you a glow. I took a lippie off because mine cracked after a week. Oh we'll, it's dirt cheap so it's not much lost.
I heard about this product through YT guru Emily saying it was a dupe for a Lorac highlighter. I was intrigued but couldn't find it at my local CVS or Rite Aid. It turns out that this is only sold in Walgreens?! It was so cheap that I bought two from the beginning and so glad I did. This is a great highlighter, subtle, and not too frosty. I'm actually finding myself reaching for this over my KA Candlelight. (KA Candlelight is frostier and more shimmer, and pulls more champagne). I can already tell this is going to be an HG for me.
I bought this based on another reviewer's comments -- that this isn't sparkly but more like a glow. I have oily skin, I'm 52, and most highlighters do nothing but highlight everything I'm trying to hide, along with making me look greasy. This is a great product. As a brow highlighter, it lightens my brow bone without being silver, sparkly, glittery or even shimmery. It's glow-y. Same for using on the tops of my cheeks. I have large pores and acne scars and other highlighters just grab onto and accentuate the problems. This product is a perfect of example that just because a product costs more doesn't make it better.
The bronzer thats really a highlighter. And so different. Does not add a shiny frost like Benfits High beam, but rather a soft glow. Great over matte foundation to add dimension. Like Palladios' Herbal Highlighter but cheaper.
I don't wear a foundation; I just moisturize, then use NYX skin tone eyeshadow base as a spot and under-eye concealer (another awesome product!) I'd prefer a translucent finish, but finding something with enough yellow and that doesn't make me look ashy has been impossible (I'm 38, medium/olive/warm, kind of sensitive skin tending toward the dry side.) Mineral Veil? Forget it. Makes me look like a baby pink, dried-out ghost. The type with shimmer? Same, just add sparkle.
Enter W'n'W Coloricon Bronzer in 'Reserve Your Cabana'. At $4, I decided to give it a chance as an all-over finishing powder. To say I'm impressed and surprised is an understatement. It's light, but doesn't have that "ghosting" effect that even some darker powders have; being talc-free likely helps. On my skin, it adds no color, but instead "sets", evens out, and adds a subtle glow.
I'm absolutely THRILLED!
P.S. As far as packaging: If it breaks, as others on here have said it's prone to do, I've kept some Bare Minerals containers; I'll just grind it up and put it in there!
