My favorite time of the year is summer. But sometimes our summer is cold and cloudy and that is the time when I take out my bronzers and make my skin sun-kissed. So, the hero of my today’s review is the Wet n Wild Color Icon Collection Bronzer SPF 15 Avec FPC.
Nt Weight: 13g
Shade: #E740 Bikini Contest.
For a really long time I dreamt of having this bronzer but it was constantly sold out. But one day I was lucky enough to find it present in the local department store. I was pleasantly surprised with the prices of the Wet’n’Wild product, they were so wallet-friendly. I know that the quality of the products by this brand is very good and is way higher than the price.
The bronzer was packed in a simply designed plastic packaging with the name of the brand on the top cap. There was also a bright yellow sticker with the name of the color. On the backside there’s a list with ingredients, size and some other information about the product. I appreciate very much the SPF 15 in the product, as we need SPF something in the summer.
At first sight I've fallen in love with the beautiful sunbeam print on the powder. At first I didn't even want to use the product as the sunbeam was so beautiful. But despite using this product for a good while already, the print is still there and hasn’t changed. The bronzer really goes a long way. I presume that 13g will last for years so sometimes I apply the product on my body to make it look sun-kissed as well.
On the swatch the color might seem a little bit red but on the face I apply less so it won’t look red once blended. The texture of the product is very lightweight and soft to the touch. I take the product with a bronzer brush and the color payoff is always amazing.
The formula is almost matte though there’s some shimmer to it. But I think the shimmer is undetectable on the skin. This very color will flatter all the swarthy girls and boys (if needed) but for fair girls it might look too intense and red.
Usually I apply this bronzer on my bare skin as I don’t like using foundation products in summer so to not weight my skin down. No issues with application. The product always looks even and patch-free. I usually apply this bronzer on my cheekbones, temples, chin and decollete. The staying power is excellent, as the product stays on for the entire day.
In real life I usually apply a lesser amount of the product but here I applied more on purpose - to show you the true color of the product.
I like the result I get with using this bronzer. Straight after application my skin looks healthier and better. The bronzer makes my skin sun-kissed which I really like. Wallet-friendly price, great quality and beautiful heavy packaging make this product a must-have for me.
