I am a blush hoarder. I honestly have some major issues and my addiction ranges from drugstore to MAC to Dior. This blush is probably one of my most used of my entire collection. Reminds me of MAC Margin, it adds this beautiful dimension to the cheeks by giving a gorgeous highlight. It's not glittery or shimmery, more of a sheen and the color is a peachy bronze. Others have said thats its a dupe of MAC Stereo Rose (which people are seriously obsessed with) but I wouldn't know, don't have that one.
Go and pick this one up, its perfect for the summer. The only issue I have it with the packaging...it sucks.

Can do heavy or light
And since it's almost a dark peach with some glitter can be used as blush for summer
I'm sure you have been at the store and tried bronzer testers and come out looking with orange spots on your cheeks-not exactly beach coloring-I live in California, I know how this is suppposed to look :)
The box needs work but it is inexpensive and it does look pretty
not orange. Everything is orange on my fair/light skin. This does not.

I just bought this bronzer a few days ago and I must say tht I am n love with it. I use it as an overall bronzer as well as a highlighter/contour my face where the sun hits my face it. Not only is this stuff cheap, it gives me a healthy glow, a bronzed face, and a little goes a long way. I have to use a primer to make it last a little longer but no biggie I def would buy again Im mad I didnt find out about this stuff until the end of summer :( I will be using during the winter :D

Love this! It gives you an awesome sun-kissed look, perfect for summer! :D I use this as blush and it comes out beautifully every time, sad shame that Summers almost over because this is the perfect product for me. The packaging is great and prevents the powder from falling out into a huge mess if I drop it (it's happened before with other products, it's a HOT mess)
The only down side to this is that if you put too much on it doesn't look as flattering (well not for me) because then it get all sparkly. But other than that if you apply it correctly, its LOVELY <3

I love this thing ! Ive tried all types of bronzers. From Chanel to Estee Lauder to clarins, EVERYTHING and even cover girl and maybelline brands. But nothing has given me what I really want until I tried this bronzer by wet N wild.
I guess its that its loose, because most bronzers i've used, where pressed powders and I never got what i was looking for....And the funny thing is, I've been glancing at this thing since i was in like 7th grade, (given im in my 2 year of college) and I never got it. Until one day I actually got it. the color is perfect it gives me the type of glow that makes my face look natural. Bc I am of olive skin most bronzers are either too light or way too dark, and Im glad i've found my happy medium. Im almost scared they will discontinue this......
Thanx again Wet N Wild :0)

Holy crap, this is a summer go-to product for me. I read about it as being a dupe for Stereo Rose by MAC, but while I've never owned, nor seen it SR in person, I can't attest to that. BUT, I can say that this is a great all-over bronzer that gives you a very natural sun-kissed glow at a really great price.
One of the reasons I love this product so much is because it has a bit of a red undertone to it, and when your skin gets tan/sun-kissed, it turns every so slightly (or not, depending on how much you've tanned!) pink/red. So, the red undertones make it look really natural without the sun damage. Score!
Because this is a cheap drugstore product, the fact that a little DOESN'T go a long way is just fine with me. I purchased mine back in March to prepare for spring/summer, and I'm not even close to halfway through it. Ar just under four bucks, buying this once a season is very easy on your bank account. But yeah, I do find that I usually start with a light hand with this stuff, and then have to build it quite a bit, depending on how dark the rest of my body is, to get the right color. Usually my face is very fair while the rest of my bosy get the sunless tanner treatment (tanner makes me break out, no matter if it's for the face or not), so I usually need to use more bronzer than normal in the summer.
Yeah, can't recommend this product enough. And the fact that it's mineral-based is super awesome.

This is a beautiful blush. It's labelled as a bronzer, but on my nc40 skin it is way too rosy to be used as a bronzer. Amber glow gives my cheeks a really pretty bronze-rose-orange glow, that is the best way i can describe it, it looks like I blended several blushes together to get this color. I usually stay away from loose powders since they can get really messy, but the little cap on the sifter helps a bit. For $4 amber glow is an absolute steal.

I can't find anything bad to say about this product. Its such amazing quality for a few bucks.
I like using it as a blush because it has a hint of coppery/rosiness to it that I don't care to have all over my face as a bronzer. It's very finely milled and blends beautifully. You only have to use a tiny bit to get that natural glowy look.
A+++ all the way around.

I tried this as a blush, and it's so beautiful! The perfect name really is amber glow! The only problems I have are that it is very sparkly and it is pigmented, but does not last too long. I still think it's great though!

i dont get why everyone is raving about this, i mean yes, it does add a healthy glow when used minimally. but it also makes my face look orange and dirty. hmph, maybe its just me.
This is an HG product for me now. It is NOT very good as a bronzer, but it works AMAZING as a blush, especially for olive skin

Love this bronzer!!! It's a beautiful warm, rosey-bronze color with a bit of shimmer that wakes your entire face up. It does not look orange or make your face look dirty, like a lot of other bronzers can. Also, the shimmer is not sparkly or tacky, as I hate anything on my face to look frosty. You cannot beat the price either. It's very pigmented, so I usually sprinkle some on a tissue, swirl a big brush in it, blow off the excess from the brush, then sweep it across my forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose. Viola! Instant glow! Great product all the way around!

i like this product, i dont use it as a bronzer though, i use it as a blush. the color is beautiful, lke a golden coral kinda color, it dont lke the packaging, rite when i opened it some of the product spilled out, which was VERY annoying. the product itself is very pigmented nd i lke putting it over a pressed blush to give my face a nice sortof golden sheen.
i dont really ever use this, the product gets really messy nd my blush brush ( i use the one by Sonia Kashuk) always picks up to much which lead to tapping product off which leads to makeing it even more messy.. :p

I'm so thrilled I bought this! I have to admit I have turned into a bit of a make up snob, but one of my favorite YouTube gurus (Blacklablover9) often raves about Wet n Wild products so I finally tried a few.
I got this at a local Kmart because they don't sell it at Target. It was a measly $4 and I was super suspicious. The packaging is just ok. I like the double lid, but the rest of it is pretty meh and when I removed the label it was still sticky. I hate that.
The actual product is IDENTICAL to stereo rose! It's stereo rose in loose power form. It's gorgeous. It can be worn as a blush or a bronzer. I'm in love. They only had one where I bought it, but I'm going to be on the lookout to buy a back up. I'm so glad I tried this!

I loooove this bronzer! it's not too dark and gives a nice corally finish that isn't too glittery. It's the perfect shade. It's also really cheap and I was surprised at the quality and staying power. My only complaint is that I hate the packaging. I wish it wasn't a loose bronzer but one of those pressed ones.
Oh and it's quite pigmented so I just need a wee bit and then i buff it out with my brush :)

Got this product after a YTuber mentioned it was a dupe for MAC's Stereo Rose. wasn't able to snag a SR, so picked this up! It is fabulous. It goes on very smooth, the color is phenomenal, not bronze, more of a coral. it is very buildable depending on the look you're going for. there is a shimmer, but nothing obnoxious. definitely will be stocking up on this product.

This is by far the BEST Bronzer I have tried!!! In fact I have been using it as a blush & It gives the most amazing color to my cheeks!! I am in LOVEEEEEEE with this product! The staying power is pretty good, I can still see it after a few hours of application. I have been reaching for it every day since I bought it! Wonderful product! Amazing Color!!

I LOVE this bronzer! It was only 4$ at CVS. I bought it because of a youtube guru raved about it and said it was simular to MAC Stereo Rose. I don't own Stereo Rose,so I cant talk about that but what I can say, I love this bronzer! The name suits it perfectly. Amber color, and it definitely makes you glow! There is no real glitter in this,rather just shimmer,but not too shimmery at all. I am SO hooked on this bronzer, and I am really not a bronzer kinda girl! It is very pigmented, and a little goes a long way. I do love the packaging, it isnt "pretty" packaging but what I love about it is the fact that the sifter has a lid to it and then there is the screw on cap! So then that way all the product doesn't build up on top of the sifter! Love this product! 5*s definitely! I will buy a back up of this just in case it gets DC'd or I run out...either way its definitely worth the 4$ price tag!

I bought this on the high recommendations of my favorite YT gurus and am glad I did. I couldn't wait for a sale, so it was $4. It goes on like a bronzy/rosy blush w/shimmer. It's not too shimmery that you look like an oil slick or glitter ball. If applied lightly, it looks like a glow...so true to it's name .. amber glow. The packaging is a sealable sifter w/twist top lid. The lid is kinda loose, but the fliptop lid keeps everything intact. I like that. I think I will really enjoy playing around with this. I will use it as a blush, bronzer and maybe even a glow as my tan starts to fade this fall. It's a great buy, check it out! :-)

So I heard on YT that this is super similar to Stereo
Rose...sure enough it does and i love it!!! I use it as a blush and it looks awsome..it gives a super healthy flush... =) love the price tag on this too!

I don't know what it is with me and cheap bronzers - just one of those things I hate to spend a lot of money on. One of my favorite cheap ones is the now DC'd WnW Acapulco Glow...a highlighter really, with a warm toastly barely there sheen. Perfect. I can't find it anywhere now, and my last one is down to about a quarter teaspoon of little crumbs.
Anyway, I decided to try the Ultimate Minerals bronzer, which has been out for a while. There was only one color at the store I went to, Amber Glow. I love it. It has much more color than Acapulco, and is a more bronzy peach, with just a slight, very slight, suggestion of shimmer. One dusting gives a light, soft, sunkissed effect. You can build it up a little more with additional applications, but you are never going to get a really obvious look, unless maybe you are extremely pale.
Comes in the typical mineral jar with sifter lid, and the sifter lid inside has it's own little lid, which makes it much less messy. It only "sifts" out when you want it to. No brush comes with it, which is fine, you will probably want to use your own better quality one anyway.
I like it a lot. It looks very natural, which is something you want with bronzer. Staying power is ok, the same as most mineral products on me. Definitely recommended if you don't want to spend too much and if the look you are going for is subtle. WnW is hit or miss for me, for the most part I don't care for the line, but this mineral bronzer (and the mineral blushes) are pretty decent. I would buy again for sure.
