Obviously this isn't a bronzer.. I'm so pale I'm basically translucent. Everything I purchase is the lightest shade available... And this still isn't a bronzer on me. That being said, I bought it for the reason everyone does, as a highlighter. For my skin color, it's an okay highlighter. It's kind of too close to my skintone so it mostly blends in. I prefer a more pinky/white highlighter. It's also a little bit powdery. But any skin color darker than myself (aka everyone's) I think it'd look really pretty as a highlight. I do like that it isn't shimmery too.
Ok, so I am always the lightest shade if foundation and even I cannot use this product as a bronzer. However, I think we all know that this product is most well known for its highlighting abilities, and for that purpose this product is great! It gives the most lovely, subtle glow to the skin. The perfect highlight for daytime/ professional environment. The packaging is not sturdy...if you drop it or travel with it, it may break so be warned! Mine shattered recently so I just bought a new one. For $3, you can't beat it!
- gives beautiful glow
- a lot of product
- SPF (expires sooner)
Comments: Love this! It can give you a very subtle glow to a more intense one depending on how much you use. For reference, I have an olive complexion. It's gorgeous. I don't see the need for SPF, but hate that it has an expiration date because of it.
This is no bronzer. That being said, I knew it wasn't from the get go. I bought this as a highlighter. It works well as a subtle highlighter. I tend to use it more to tone down over zealous blush applications....because sometimes I love blush too much! :)
Today out of sheer laziness I used it today to set my foundation and you know what...it was pretty awesome! I highly recommend checking this cheap little gem out. :)
I am loving this product not only as a highlighter (not really a bronzing shade, although it is called a bronzer), but I use it as an all over face powder. It gives such a beautiful glow to the skin and it has SPF 15! Not sure how much I will be using it once fall/winter approaches, but for the summer, it is perfect. It is great for setting my foundation, and can be built up for added highlighting.
LOVE IT! I'm not the type for a really noticable shimmery highlight and this is perfect for me, a little more than a satin finish and you get the bang for your buck! So much product! A little tap with a brush will do since it is kind of powdery but it's fine for me!
I love this product, especially for the price! It gives such a subtle amount of shimmer and I think it's perfect for the summer. Also for a nice glow I use it as a all over face powder because I have ivory skin.
I can't believe what a great product this is. Honestly, I never really consistently used highlighters in the past, because I felt that they were either too shimmery, chalky, or just unnatural looking in some way. I was shopping around Walgreens and they were having a buy-one-get-one sale on Wet n' Wild products and I had heard that "Ticket to Brazil" was a dupe for Nars "Laguna" so I figured I would give it a try! I saw "Reserve Your Cabana" and thought it was too light to be used as a bronzer, but might make a good highlighter, and since it was free..I grabbed it! So glad I did! Its funny, because I didn't end up caring for "Ticket to Brazil" at all. (Just for me..I don't think its a bad product.) This highlighter however, really creates a natural, lit-from-within glow and can be used day or night. It has a light shimmer, but it doesn't look gaudy, unnatural or exacerbate pores/imperfections. It just gives a healthy sheen to cheek bones, or the bridge of the nose.. or anywhere for that matter! It has a smooth texture and good pigmentation. It can kind of seem like it might be chalky at first, but it doesn't transfer that way to the skin at all. All I need is a dab, so this product really will last me forever. I've had it about 5 months (I use it everyday) and I haven't even removed all of the designs or "Wet n' Wild" logo that was originally carved into the product! The container is humongous, so there is a lot of product to go through... and being so big, it isn't as travel-friendly as I would like. It doesn't seem at flimsy as other Wet n' Wild compacts, but I would definitely suggest being careful with this one. I think it would crack or shatter if dropped. I wish it had a mirror, but for $2.99, beggars can't be choosers. So yes, if I ever hit pan or break/lose this, I would definitely repurchase! I would definitely suggest this to anyone who wants to add a healthy glow to their face. Its an easy and cheap addition to any makeup routine and looks lovely.
I love this because it's so subtle, and good for the daytime when you don't want anything too shimmery. It's been compared to the Hourglass ambient lighting powders, which is great because they are way out of my price range. This product is quite powdery when you dip your brush in, but it doesn't apply chalky or look powdery at all. I really recommend it.
MEh It's ok I don't love it but I use it. It doesn't really show up on my nw20 skin and since I have dry skin it looks sort of weird and chalky down the bridge of my nose. I hope it will look better when my skin tans a bit...hopefully. Going to try and get elf shimmer pallette next
