WET N WILD COLOR ICON BRONZERS (ALL COLORS) // REVIEW & SWATCH

2:26 PM




Hi Lavs!

I don't know if you can relate to me, but for me, before I started reading beauty blogs and watching youtube beauty videos, I didn't know about bronzer at all, no, nada. A product to warm up your face and make you look more tanned? But, why? What? haha that was my first thought. Through out the years, the word bronzer is getting more and more familiar to me and I also started to realize, hey, I think bronzing up your face to give some warmth makes sense after all. 

Fast forward to few months ago, my friend told me that she was going to get a bronzer and asked me if I wanted one as well. I realized that I didn't have any bronzer in my makeup stash! Well, I lied, I have the bronzer and blush duo from elf, but I don't like it. So I said yeah, why not.
Planned to get the famous NYC sunny bronzer, but sadly, it is not available anymore, I think it is dicontinued :(

So I googled and read more reviews, I decided to get...   

*   WET N WILD COLOR ICON BRONZERS   *

--
*   PRODUCT   *

 

This line has 3 shades available: Bikini contest (the darkest color, deep reddish brown), Ticket to Brazil (medium brown color) and Reserve Your Cabana (which is practically a highlighter, Idk why they put it under bronzer category). Keep reading to see the swatches.


This is how it looks on the pan. It has a sun pattern as well as wet n wild writing. Sadly, reserve your cabana crumbled apart in the shipment, so now it has no pattern anymore.
I got this from drugstore.com, but you can get from Wet n Wild Indonesia website for IDR 98.000.


This bronzer is huge. Let me repeat. It is HUGE
Look at its size when being compared to the size of my palm.
On a good note, it is a bang for your bucks ;)
I think the packaging is a little bit too fragile. Thus, I think this product is not travel friendly.

*   TEXTURE & BLEND-ABILITY   *
Buttery smooth! Loving that this product can blend effortlessly on the skin.

--
*   PIGMENTATION   *
Amazing. Be careful not to pick up too many product on your brush.
You can see how pigmented it is on the swatches below. It is only one swipe.

*   SWATCHES   *


As you can see, all the colors are shimmery. So yes, this is trully a bronzer, not a contour color.
Bikini Contest is a reddish brown which may work on darker complexion.
Unfortunately for me, this color doesn't seem quite right.

Ticket to Brazil is my personal favorite.
It is a medium golden brown which appears very natural on my complexion.

Reserve Your Cabana is a very natural looking highlighter for me.
I like this better compared to the highlighter from Sleek Face Form (review here). 

--
*   STAYING POWER   *
Great! I wore it on a normal working day and it stayed on for a good 8 hours.
On days where I did quite a bit of activity, it stayed around 3+ hours.

*   OVERALL   *
If you are looking for a bronzer with affordable price which gives natural looking warmth & glow to your facehas amazing texture and pigmentation, don't mind the huge packaging,
I'd say you better give this a go!


Have you tried these bronzers before? What are your thoughts?

    1. Wahh kalo buat aku bronzernya muddy and blushnya terlalu pink di aku, mungkin aku yang salah pick the shade. Iya, bagus kok yang reserve your cabana hehehe

  4. I love the matte bronzers/contours from Wet n Wild! They're so inexpensive compared to other bronzers and work well.

  5. I have never tried a bronzer as I am not really into makeup, but it was nice reading your review! I love the name "Ticket to Brazil" - it makes me think of sun and summer.
