I couldn't believe that something as cheap as this bronzer could look so polished and high-quality.
First off, this is a highly pigmented bronzer with a warm/orange-y undertone and golden shimmer. The texture is silky smooth, not chalky at all with an intense color payoff which means you have to use a light hand with this one and also blend it with a good quality brush. It lasts long on my face and also as a product it will last you a good amount of time because a little bit goes a long way. I've been using it every day last summer all the time and it looks like I have barely touched it.
Now, this is a bronzer that I wouldn't recommend for contouring as it is shimmery and too orange for that kind of thing. But it works ideally as an all over bronzer on tanned skin. This was a life-saver during the summertime, it complemented my natural tan so beautifully. I used it all over (apples of my cheeks, forehead, neck) for that summer-bronze glow and the shimmer wasn't too intense, it just added that golden sheen to my complexion which had a lovely effect. You have to note also, that I am quite picky with bronzers and face makeup in general, because I usually go for natural subtle looks, I don't do an overly done, full face of makeup often.
Overall, it's really worth the money, I mean come on it's dirt cheap and you will definitely get a lot of use out of it.

This color is perfect for bronzing up the skin and contouring. It's really pigmented and sometimes I even use it as eye shadow!

This bronzer is amazing! It has great pigmentation, which is what I love! A little goes a long way and you get great natural color that lasts through the whole day! I also love the new packaging, how it is a big circular pan...filled with tons of product! This product is the best four dollars I ever spent on a makeup product because you really get a bang for your buck!

This is some great stuff! I can't believe I bought this years ago and am just using it. I use as highlight under my eyes and down the middle of my face. Gives me a great glow. I also like that it is not too shimmery. It have a glow, but is also matte, if that makes any sense. I don't remember how much it was, but it was under $5. I always love stuff too late. Hopefully, I can get another one.

I love this product! I am so sorry that I waited until this spring to try it.
Wet 'n Wild discontinued my previous bronzer a couple of years ago. I stockpiled as much as I could, carried one around for comparison, and tried every drug store brand available. They were all horrible! I finally picked this one up, and it is much better for me than the one I was using before (Tahitian Tan). There is less of it in the package, but the color is wonderful on me. It's closer to my skin tone.
I know that it's a no-no, but I use bronzer all over my face, instead of foundation and powder. I get compliments all day long, about how smooth and clear and pretty my skin is, which it definitely is not! I have dark marks and large pores from eczema AND acne, but others don't notice this at all with this bronzer. And it only takes a light layer.
The one I bought was the only one I've been able to find in stores. It seems like it may be discontinued, even though it's still on Wet 'n Wild's website. So I ordered 10 online at a great price. I hope to order more next payday.

BEAUTIFUL. I have medium skintone and i need to buff this in (only a DAB is needed on the brush) a little bit, but it looks more natural than my other, more expensive, powder bronzers. V pretty effect. Easy to overdo, depending on your skin colour. The minuscule shimmer particles are not at all apparent on the skin, look v naturally and subtly "glow-y"

I am very, very pale and use this bronzer for contouring and it's great! It's super ridiculously pigmented, and has a great texture- not powdery at all. A little goes a LOOOOONG way and I need to blend the heck out of it, but I'm very pleased with this, especially considering the cost. I also appreciate that it isn't overly orange, since I have cool toned skin. The packaging is pretty basic and not super sturdy, but if you treat it well then it won't fall apart or anything like that.

Overall, nice product, a little too shimmery, but nice.
A little goes a long way (had to learn that the hard way),
packaging is annoying to open usually.
The brush is pretty useless, it sheds.
it broke! i dont know if i dropped it, but it all crumbled and left a huge mess in my make-up bag :( im so sad

This review is for WnW's Coloricon Bronzer in #33837 Don't Be Shellfish. I'm NC40 and thrilled. Since I wear bronzer as blush year round, I need a product that is natural, long lasting, and complex enough so that the powders read as multi-dimensional in shade on the skin. The quality is excellent, the staying power excellent, the glow, everything. The powder is two toned with a clever design of the darker powder on the outside of the pallet, which means I can easily sweep a blush brush around the perimeter to get the brown and then come back to a shell and star-shaped part of the pallet to get the salmon colored highlight.
I often just swirl these together with a brush before applying. It gives my cheekbones a sort of burnished quality that I have not found in other bronzers high or low end. The package indicates that the product is a "special micronized blend of treated nylon powders to adhere to the skin and provide long lasting, blendable color. I don't know this technology, however it WORKS. Best of all it dies not break me out, which is a huge thing for my sensitive/aging/acne prone skin. I add a layer of finishing powder from Lucy Minerals on top for extra insurance. Everything about this product is perfect.

This was given to me by my sis, she thought it was too dark on her, but I think she didn't apply it right. At first I wasnt feeling it, I applied with cheap blush brush. Then got a Sigma F40 brush and now use this to contour, and I love it. It's not too shimmery, but highly pigmented, so little goes a long way.
