Hello my lovely ladies,
This is my first ever review on IMBB and I am super excited to contribute my share on this space as I am a makeup junkie and love watching YouTube videos related to makeup and fashion. Though I consider myself a makeup lover, I never got a chance to write a review on anything because of my tighter work schedules, but finally, I decided to spare some time out of my busy life and do something which I love the most. So, here I am with a product review on the very famous Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana.
I always wanted to try a subtle highlighter to emphasize those beautiful high points on the face and to get more dimension and dewy glow to brighten up the makeup look. Unfortunately, my skin being more towards the oily side, ends up being shiny in all wrong places and I was very skeptical to aggravate the shine with the highlighter!! One fine day, I was walking through the aisles of Walgreens aimlessly and couldn’t pass this beauty 🙂 So, I finally decided to try this budget-friendly highlighter and ended loving this for the price and amount of product that comes in. Believe me when I say it is bigger than my palm!!
This highlighter comes in a plastic container which makes it travel friendly, but be extra cautious as it can shatter and break very easily. Wet n Wild promotes the product as a bronzer to add a golden glow and a touch of luminosity to any complexion for a healthy, sun-kissed look. Special blend of treated nylon powders provide long-lasting, blend-able color. Dermatologist-tested. As the product claims, it is definitely not a bronzer as it comes in a pale champagne color, more suitable to be a highlighter for light-medium skin tones.
$3.99 for 0.46oz/13 gm.
My Take on Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana:
It is a very beautiful tightly milled, buttery soft highlight color for light-medium skin tones; it has the right amount of sheen which makes it suitable to use it on everyday basis even to work to fake the beautiful glowy skin. That being said, if not blended properly, it might emphasize the open pores and make it look even bigger. This highlighter photographs pretty well even with the flash which makes it suitable to rock the night parties. If you have dry skin, it might stick to the dry patches and appear chalky just make sure to use a nice moisturizer or a suitable foundation underneath.
This can be used on highest points of the face like cheek bones, brow bone, bridge of the nose, cupid bow and also in the inner corner of the eyes. I also like to use it on the “no-makeup days” to give my skin an extra glow and also it comes with an SPF 15 which is an added advantage for those hot and humid days to protect the highest points on your face to get sun burnt.
Pros of Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana:
- Lot of product for the price, you might not ever run out of the product 😉
- Very affordable and easily accessible in any drug stores.
- Buttery soft consistency.
- Right amount of sheen to give that perfect glow.
- Good product for those people who want to give a try to highlighters before spending lot of bucks on high-end product.
Cons of Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana:
- Can be chalky and flaky if not blended properly.
- Might emphasize the open pores.
Women with large pores can definitely pass this product, for that matter any highlighter!!
Please make a note that this product comes with an expiry date, not sure if it turns bad after it expires. I am pretty sure that I can never touch the pan for this product.
Yes, I would recommend this product to anyone who doesn’t have open pores on the skin.
