This is a gorgeous highlighter. I use it on my cheeks and the inner corners of my eyes, and it really brightens up my face and gives me a glow. I'm NC10 so i don't see how this could be a bronzer for anyone. i think it's good for warmer skintones, while Wet 'N' Wild all over shimmer seems better for cooler skin tones, because it's more pink.

I would consider this product a highlighter, not a bronzer. As a highlighter, it works beautifully. I am PPP/netural undertone and this looks very pretty on my skin.

I have very pale skin, but this was way too light. It just made my skin look beige and sparkly.

I bought this after reading the reviews here. After looking for weeks, I bought it online for $3. As Murphys Law would have it, I found it 2 days later at the grocery store on clearance for $1.49 :D Oh well, now I have 2.
Works great as a highlighter, I'm pale as a sheet and no way this works as a bronzer. Which is fine, not why I bought it. Use a light hand, and it gives you a very nice glow. I'm glad I have multiples, I think I'll be using this often.

I have NC20 skin with strong yellow undertones and this works wonderfully as a highlighter- not a bronzer. I like adding it over my NARS Orgasm blush to make it more glowy.
1. Packaging is very cheap (what do expect with the great price tag?)
2. A few swipes is enough- a heavy hand with this will make you look silly

As others have stated, this is by no means a bronzer; however, it's a wonderful highlighter, providing a nice glow where you apply it. I don't know how this will fare with darker skin tones but on my NC20 skintone (fair with yellow undertones), it gives me a healthy glow. The product itself is light and shimmery so be careful, as I've been told I look glittery on days I apply with a heavier hand. I apply Acapulco Glow on my cheeks on top of my blush for that extra oomph. The packaging is cheap and flimsy, along with the brush, but for a few bucks, you get an awesome product that will lasts for months. I've had the same compact since last summer and I'm only now hitting pan.

First off, this is really a highlighter, not a bronzer (unless you're REALLY pale). It's mostly just champagne colored shimmer. It isn't the most finely milled, but hey - it's only $2.99. It looks great over a matte blush to give you a summery glow, but be careful not to apply too much or it *will* accentuate pores and scars. The packaging really sucks, but again, only 3 bucks. Unfortunately, I think WnW may be discontinuing these, but I'm not sure. They may just be re-packaging them like they did with their blush. Either way, if you're looking for a cheap, neutral highlighter, definitely go and pick one up while you can.

Overall I love this stuff. I got mine for .74 cents, so price-wise it's great as well. It comes with a small brush and the plastic compact has a small mirror inside.
I'm NC15 and this stuff acts as a highlighter for me. Very pretty and glowy. I pack it on after putting on my blush and it shows up nicely without looking cakey or making my pores look huge. I just use the brush it came with... it's not awesome but it does the job for me.

Another great recommendation from MUA. I had never even given this brand a second thought. Great as a highlighter. You can brush a little over your cheeks and it gives a nice, subtle shimmer A little too light for a bronzer unless you are extremely pale.
I'm afraid that this product might be discontinued. Although I have a full one, I found it at my local drugstore and purchased a back-up. They only had one left, so I bought it. It is not listed on the Wet N Wild Website . It only lists 2 colors for bronzer and neither are the ones that are mentioned in these reviews. Also, I noted that the name and the packaging on their blushes is different. The colors are still the same though.
Very inexpensive. If you can find it, then I would pick it up.

They don't sell this anywhere around me anymore, but after reading all the rave reviews and wanting some type of shimmer powder, I ordered it online. I probably paid more for it than I had to, which I wasn't happy about, but it was the last resort. Anyway, I was kinda disappointed when I first tried it on. I was expecting more of a payoff in terms of shimmer or pale golden pigment, but wasn't seeing much. I have an NC35 undertone, if that makes a difference. If you like low-dose, barely-there sheen, get this. The "glitter" is minimal, like you can see it up close but it doesn't scream out at you. There is a definite sheer sheen, yes. And I think you really have to layer it to make out any sparkle. Others have also noted that this isn't really a bronzer but more of a highlighter. I guess I'm just used to a little more when it comes to a highlighter. Anyway, I think I'll be fine using this as a natural glow finishing powder. It does look very natural, I'll give it that, if you don't want to look overdone, and it probably looks even better on paler skin tones. Wasn't what I was expecting, but I'm now stuck with it and may as well make use of it. I will update my lippie rating if my opinion changes!

What an amazing product! I had to do my roommate's makeup for our sorority formal and she was wearing a white beaded princess-y dress and I used this on her cheekbones to give her a glow. She's NW35 for reference, and this worked great as a natural looking highlighter. It didn't leave a white strip behind and it just blended into her skin. It's a pigmented light beige shimmery color and its super buttery soft and easy to blend. It might be too shimmery for some people, but when used with a light hand and the right brush (I used MAC 187) it will look amazing!

This bronzer is amazing! Although, to be fair- I wouldn't really call it a bronzer because it's a sheer satin finish and almost the same shade as my skin. It's more of a brightening face powder that results in an amazing glow for light/medium skin tones. For NC/NW30s and darker, I'd imagine that this makes a great highlighter.
Anyways, back to the review- it's very soft pressed powder, it's got that lovely 'buttery' texture that NYX e/s are liked for. It's easy to use and unlike most bronzers that make me orange and unflattering, it is very hard to mess up this product. I use it all over my face- cheeks, nose, jaw line, temples, brow bone, etc.
The only down side is that I did notice that it seemed to accentuate the pores, so go easy on it. Oh the price! You just can't go wrong with it. Unfortunately, for reasons I'll never understand- this product is being discontinued. But I've been snatching them up for super cheap- like a dollar each- because at these prices, why not stock pile a few?

I absolutely love this bronzer!!! I have extremely pale skin so I use this above my eyebrows, around my nose, chin, and above my cheekbones to provide a nice healthy glow. It has such a great price too.

I am NC 20, and this is my HG *bronzer* as of right now. I can pile this on and it doesn't look orange or silly, but I do have to have quite a heavy hand for it to work as a bronzer. I see why it is just a highlighter for so many people, and I actually wish it was less shimmery. If I can find something that is a tad darker (everything I come across seems to be too dark though, nothing can touch this!) and less shimmery without being $$$ then this will lose its HG status. Until then though I <3 my Acapulco Glow!

If you ever run across this, give it a shot! You might be as surprised as me. I bought this last summer and it's my go to highlighter, I layer it on top of blushes or just by itself and absolutely love it! ;) It is rather hard to find in my area, since it alway seems to be out of stock.

So I just realized that this, my most favorite Highlighter, is being discontinued. Sad times!! It is definitely NOT a bronzer. I am super pale and use it as a highlighter. Is so glowy and pretty on. I do have to spritz with Fix + when I use it to tone down the powdery-ness and make it more dewy. I'm gonna miss it!
Thank you to the previous reviewer who recommended Hard Candy's Tiki as a possible replacement!

I actually don't use this as a bronzer. Since I have a darker skintone I use it on my brow bone as a muted highlight. I love the texture and how it's not too powdery/cakey.

I absolutely love this product. <333 it's amazing, when I feel like glowing I wear this, lasts all day beautiful sheen.

wowowo.. I don't normally use Wet n Wild products because I have a minor problem with products manufactured in China (hey, they put melamine in baby formula and other nastiness).
My daughter who is a scrapper for bargains came home with this and gave me one as a gift (she paid 2.99 for it..lol). I absolutely love it.
I don't think it has noxious elements in it, but I am of the school that what doesn't kill you will make you stronger (babies excepted). Anyway, I used this as a highliter, although it says bronzer. It is not bronze. It is a light/skin color with sheer sheen. It is not shimmery or glittery -- just nice sheen. Neither my daughter or I have broken out, gotten any allergic reaction or funny nonsense...so I guess it's all good.
The color will adapt to any skin and should be used with blusher or bronzer -- if not, you will not get a great color payoff. That said, it is worth 10x more than what she paid because it is a gorgeous color with great pigmentation and application. This is an inexpensive dupe for many highliters and will complement most skin tones. Use this with a stippling brush and softly define your cheekbones and other areas you wish to highlite.
I will be buying a few to stash for client use.
