I don't usually use highlighter because I haven't found one that doesn't look strange on me. I bought this when Rite Aid had bogo free on WnW. I really like the subtle sheen the product gives - it's not straight up sparkly or metallic but the shimmer looks really beautiful on the cheek bones. I also like that it doesn't lean too pink or too golden as I find that can be unnatural. If you're looking for a glow without the disco ball effect, this product is for you. For $3.99 you get a ton of product and you'll probably never run out.
i absolutely love this product. i've tried using it as highlight powder, but for me personally its too subtle. i like to use it as an all over finishing powder on top of my more usually more matte foundations. it adds a little more "life" into my foundations. and i don't really notice a huge issue with oil when i use this powder as an all over powder (but i don't have oily skin). the price is really great and you get a huge amount of product. i'll probably be using this product for a while. all in all no complaints. its a powder that's not overly glittery, but i'd say has a sheen to it.
I use this as a highlighter, as many other people seem to. I'm very pale, but it still works.
I enjoy this highlighter and I think it's good for people who are on a budget because I've found it's very difficult to find a good drugstore highlighter.
If I compare this to other drugstore highlighters, I'd give this a 4/5. However, I have many highlighters from different price ranges and in comparison this just isn't something I reach for often.
This is not a true bronzer. It is however, a wonderful highlighter. I love this stuff for a great luminous glow. I have already hit pan and purchased another compact, speaking of which, the packaging is awful.
The product is lovely, silky to the touch and doesn't feel cakey on the skin. It can be a bit powdery, so adjust the brush a bit, but it is easy to work with. This is a staple for giving me a bit of luminous lift.
Another fabulous product from Wet n Wild. As already stated, tons of product for so little money - great texture too! Not as soft as their eyeshadow palettes, but this can be a teeny bit powdery if too much is picked up. This is definitely not a bronzer, but I will say - this highlighter shows up very differently on my skin, heres how: when I don't self tan and am a bit paler, this stuff is like a dream. It's such a nice soft glow, no pink/silver/gold undertones - just a slight natural champagne sheen with no chunks of glitter. However, when my skin is darker (NC30) this looks very obvious and has more silver undertones. You know how they say people with warm undertones look better with gold jewelry, and cool undertones with silver? I feel like this is the opposite that happens - the darker I get, the more this appears to be silver and obvious. However, I cannot discount this product for that as it's just a kink with my skin/chemistry/etc - you have nothing to lose picking this up! Also - whenever I go to any Wet n Wild display I notice that a ton of these large Color Icon bronzers appear to be shattered - I haven't dropped mine yet but I feel that it's probably prone to breaking if I'm not careful!
I'm in agreement with many others on this site. THIS IS NOT BRONZER! It's way too light to be considered a bronzer, and you don't get much paler than me. That doesn't mean it's not a fantastic product. I gently tap a powder brush in this and apply it all over my face as a luminizer. The gentle warmth and tiny shimmer of this product brings my face to life. Unlike a lot of the luminizers on the market, this isn't too shiny and the color isn't too pink, so it doesn't compete with my red hair. And you get TONS of product for about $3.00 dollars.
How have I gone so long without this product? Its dirt cheap, a huge pan, and gives the most beautiful glow! Its a true glowing from within look, not too sparkly, not too fake etc. Im not sure why they market it as a bronzer, I feel like almost any skintone can highlight with this.
This stuff is great for photos! gives a great photoshopped finish. I use it all over my face and concentrate it on the typically highlighted areas as well. Mine broke since the packaging is very cheap and now i have to keep it in another jar and it kinda gets everywhere everytime i use it, it's not good for traveling(that's how it broke).
At 41 a face full of glitter is a big no for me. This works as a nice subtle highlighter for me. It gives a nice glow that's not too obvious or shimmery. You also get a huge pan of product for a mere $4.
When I first bought this product, I didn't like it. However, as of recently, I love it! When I had used it previously, I had been exfoliating too much and thus drying out my skin. Now that I've learned not to, my skin has regained it's natural texture. I like how it makes my face glow rather than shimmer. :)
So warning to those with dry skin, this stuff makes flakes very obvious.
Edit (8/5): I recently noticed how on my cheeks, this product highlights my pores :/ still a good product but maybe not for me.
