Omg I LOVE this bronzer/highlighter!!! From the moment I opened it and applied it..I'm and African American woman color NC50 in the winter and NW44. It's hard to find a good highlighter that doesn't make WOC look ashey and this does not at all. It gives you a beautiful Malibu glow as I call it.. I seriously don't leave the house without this and tropics on! Thank you hard candy..,
I love this as a highlight! I wear it everyday on my NW35 skin and it looks great! No problems with it breaking out my sensitive skin either.
The only complaint I have is that the packaging breaks really easily. And once it breaks, it can be quite messy.
Other than that, I'd recommend it.
Picked this up the other day. I LOVE IT!! Im NC15 and this is the perfect highlighter for me. I was using the Revlon Colorstay finishing powder but hated that it was so pink.
I LOVE this product. Im nc20 so this is what I use to highlight my cheekbones or I out it over my foundation if I want to have a dewy finish. Lasts so ling, good packaging,$9 at walmart and really makes you GLOW. I use this with my mufe hd foundation in 120. I have never found a highlight like it. Finely milled and doesnt add obvious glitter . Gives you a beautiful shimmer. I use this product everyday. LOVE it!!!
Let me start off by saying, I absolutely ADORE Hard Candy. They are one of my favorite brands recently discovered when they came out in Wal Mart (which is the only store I'm aware of that carries this brand) and I have been on the hunt for Tiki for a VERY VERY long time. I've seen countless reviews on YouTube and on the internet alike raving about this product. I was dying to try it, and literally, a year later, I finally snagged the last one in Wal Mart! I was so stoked. I have been using this everyday. I could not be happier with this product. This is definitely a highlighter - even for the lightest of skins, even though it says it's a bronzer - because I'm NC15 (the lightest I've ever been) and this gives me such a natural candle-lit glow. Not only was it a whopping 8$, but it comes with a TON of product, I've had my Hula Hula bronzer for months now and haven't even dented it, so I'm excited because I know this will last forever. This is a GORGEOUS light champagne color with golden veins in it, and it would look beautiful on any skintone, as I can imagine it being especially flattering on darker skin tones - but not too overwhelming. I use this ALL the time, and I love how I can use it wet to create a more intense "glow". I have been using eyeshadows as a highlight - and though I liked it, I find that it's just too intense and not natural looking enough, even though I do like a more dramatic highlight I still want something that stands out but isn't chunky glitter all over my face - and that's where Tiki comes in. I could go on for days. This is my HG highlighter. I might even get away with this on top of my contour some days. Not to mention the super adorable packaging that I love. Go buy this! if it's not sold out ;)
I really like using this as a highlighter. The shimmer is pretty subtle and lends a really nice glow to my skin. The golden color of tiki works better for my skin tone than benefits highbeam. And not to mention the price is very reasonable compared to mac msf and other higher end highlighters. My only issue, and its a minor one, is that the highlighter isn't very long lasting, average wear time is probably about 4-5hrs on me. Also I'm not sure how sturdy the packaging would be.
Although this is suppose to be a bronzer it's really more of a highlighter. It's a very beautiful golden/champagne color and I especially love it because it's not glittery or too shimmery. It's more of a satin finish so it looks very natural on the skin. It's also buildable so you can add more product to intensify the highlight or just swipe it once for a more natural glow. It's about $10 at Walmart and you get tons of product. I highly recommend this!
I've had this for a few yrs & I thought I had written a review for it but I can't find it anywhere.
Like everyone else said, this might be labeled as a bronzer but it's definitely a highlighter, even on the lightest skintones (I'm NW10). It is a nice golden glow.
This has been said to be a dupe for several different HE highlighters, including MAC Lightscapade & theBalm Mary Lou Manizer.
Now, I REALLY needed a nice bronzer because in the summer my face doesnt tan because of the moisturizer I use on the daily. THIS bronzer is AMAZING! it adds a light, sun-kissed color and a little shimmer to help your skin really glow! I wasnt really crazy about the price, however. This bronzer was 9 dollars, but i'm not complaining because it really does a great job without making you orange. A little goes a long way! I definitely reccommend this to you all!
I actually really like this product, and I didn't initially realize how much I liked it, until I moved out of my parents & started living on my own. I couldn't take all of my makeup with me, and I left this bronzer behind thinking it wasn't a favorite, or staple item or anything, so I *thought* I wouldn't miss it. But once summer time came around, I was trying to use a lot of matte products to avoid the summer oiliness - I noticed my skin looked a bit dull. The first product that came into my mind to fix this problem & add life, clarity and and overall healthy beautiful glow to my skin, was the Hard Candy Tiki Bronzer. I used this as my highlight. I had to run out to Wal-mart and spend the $9 dollars on it again. I apply this right to the top of my cheekbones. Its a gorgeous baby champagne color with beautiful golden yellow reflex veining. I never want to be without this product again, and i don't think I will be because it lasts a LONG time. I think I'll have this baked bronzer for about a year or two before the entire compact is finished, which makes it totally worth the $9 dollars. I only took off one lippy because of the packaging. The packaging is a round plastic compact, with a white bottom and clear lid. The clear lid is a bit bulky and dome shaped (because of the round baked shape of the bronzer) And has some *tattooing* inky artwork around the frame of it, which is cute. But its hard to throw this into your purse. My old one broke (a screw came out and the lid fell off) which makes this bronzer super vulnerable to breaking because of how fragile baked products can be. But overall, I love this as a highlight and totally recommend it for all skin tones!
