Review Overview

Although there is no shortage of pressed bronzing powders, if you’re looking for something that does the job at a good price, Color Icon Bronzer might be worth checking out. Wet 'n' Wild has reformulated this bronzer to include SPF 15, but you can't rely on this product for adequate sun protection. Sunscreen needs to be applied liberally, all over the face (and body!), and bronzer should be dusted on over smaller areas of the face. Otherwise, the talc-based formula has the same smooth texture as other Color Icon products, and it applies easily with a kabuki or fluffy powder brush.

Brand Overview

Wet 'n' Wild At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive, good tinted moisturizer with sunscreen; some attractive bronzing powders; mostly good eyeshadow and lipstick options.

Weaknesses: Unimpressive concealers; large assortment of average to poor eyelining products; the mascaras do little to impress; some lip products suffer from the inclusion of irritants; the makeup brushes.

Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.

Lightest shade is amazing highlighter !!

I don't use this as a bronzer at all but rather a highlighter. Texture is a powder yet applies so creamy and NO glitter. I have fair skin and the lightest shade is "Reserve Your Cabana" and it works so well as a highlight! You get so much product for the price. Can't imagine when I'd ever have to buy this again.
