Hope you all are staying safe. I work in the public health sector and am working long shifts to ensure the safety of communities. I urge you to practice social distancing and be careful about what you touch. Prioritize your health and stay indoors as much as possible. Now, let’s get into the review of a bronzer from Wet n Wild that I purchased a couple of months ago, it’s the review of Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer Palm Beach Ready.

My Experience with Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer Palm Beach Ready:
The bronzer looks really pretty in a black case with a transparent top. The golden rim with golden lettering adds to the elegance of the entire package. The bronzer is visible through the transparent top, making it easy to grab it in a hurry. The back of the case has the necessary information, listed very neatly. Overall, love the fuss-free yet elegant packaging.
The bronzer color- how do I describe it? It’s a beautiful golden color with coppery-brown undertones. The perfect color to complement wheatish-dark or a multitude of Indian skin tones. The luminosity in the bronzer comes from golden shimmers, densely packed into this pressed powder bronzer. It does feel like a cream-powder hybrid. It lacks the dry powdery feel of most other bronzers. Being intermediate in consistency, it glides effortlessly on skin with any dense brush and deposits the color on skin, sans the dryness or cakey-ness.
It has decent pigmentation, pretty buildable. The finish is semi-matte, not complete transfer-proof. It does move around if you have oil seeping out from your pores or a greasy foundation. A light touch of translucent powder before applying this bronzer will do the trick. It is such a gorgeous summer color, dab it generously on face, collar bones and arms/legs to give the exotic tropical summer vibes. It photographs well, not dazzling, but definitely packs in a punch to make you look like a Greek goddess.
All said and done, this is not a bronzer you can reach out for very often. Because of the shimmer, it does feel like a highlighter and you might go wrong any time. Also, the contouring effects are pretty low, because of the intense shine. So, use it in a light-handed fashion to add the warmth, and steer clear of wearing it to work.
