Today I am talking about this "bronzer" from Wet n Wild which is pretty popular if I'm not mistaken. I also a lot of videos I watched from Jessica Braun | JAMbeauty89 , she kept raving about how much she loved this and I was okay you convinced me so I purchased it like a good girl haha no...
First of all, let me say that I don't know what Wet n Wild is thinking naming this product bronzer.. I can't imagine this working as "bronzer" for anyone really! so whatever.. highlighter is what they meant to say I'm sure. This is a soft beige, golden shade with a slight sheen, luminosity to it. The powder feels smooth and silky, but not as similar to like my Hourglass Ambient Powders, that I hear compared to this a lot. The texture is definitely smooth and not chalky or dry. It has a fine glowy sheen, not shimmery, frosty or glittery at all. It looks very beautiful yet natural on the skin. It can be a barely there highlight for me. So what I'm trying to say is that, it's not BAM in the face highlighter. It's very natural looking and not too noticeable if you will. It definitely gives my skin a natural sheen that I know I have this on, but to someone else, might look like my skin is just glowing. I feel like it can't be over applied really. I tried building it but I still got the same look, Good thing is, it didn't make me look powdery or chalky for over applying it. I also like to use this as a blush topper. So I just take any matte blush I have, apply it then add this highlighter on top very lightly and it gives it a beautiful effect, so I just turned my blush from matte to like a satin, luminous finish. I love using this method for my matte blushes, it gives me a lot more options.
I have heard a lot of people compare this to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders, and I have both and I don't really think they're dupes for each other, in my opinion. I don't know, I swatched them side by side, and they weren't identical, so I don't think I agree with others, but that's just my personal opinion. I think this is a beautiful product and I really enjoy using it. This is perfect for my natural makeup days, because it doesn't look too obvious like some other highlighters are. If you are looking for an affordable very natural highlighter, I recommend this. I feel like with the amount of product you get and the price, you can't really go wrong with it.
