Budget Beauty: Wet N Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana

I am always happy to find exceptional products at the drugstore. It is absolutely amazing when you can get a perfect product at an extremely affordable price. My most recent discovery is the Wet N Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana that is actually a highlighter. Nevertheless, it is pretty great!

Wet N Wild Color Icon Bronzer SPF 15 ($3.99). Sunset tan! The grand daddy of the bronzer world! This big, hunky guy is the perfect man: he’s healthy for you (dermatologist-tested), not slimy (oil-free), has a great pedigree (winner of The Oprah Magazine O-Ward) and is so protective (from harmful UVB rays). Plus, he’ll always complement how you look!

Wet N Wild Color Icon Bronzer comes in three shades – Ticket To Brazil, Bikini Contest and Reserve Your Cabana. Even though it is stated to be a bronzer it is more likely to look like a highlighter in your skin if your are not extremely fair. At very least on my NW20/25 skin it does look like a highlighter and nothing like a bronzer.

Reserve Your Cabana comes in a huge compact that contains 13 g or 0.46 oz of product that is way more than you get with The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer for example (13 g against 8.5). So, there is quite a lot of product and the size of the compact allows you to use any type of a brush up to a powder brush that fits in there perfectly if you decide to add luminosity to your whole face. The powder itself is very finely milled  and soft and is not powdery at the same time. The shade is a very light beige with a natural golden sheen to it. It is not frosty as The Balm or MAC highlighters tend to be and is very easy to use. This adds just a right amount of luminosity to the skin and can easily compliment any makeup look.

Wet N Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana truly is an amazing highlighter and I reach for it quite often as it is absolutely prefect for everyday use. The budget-friendly price makes it even more appealing, especially for such a huge amount of product you get with it. I totally recommend it if you love subtle highlighters as it is pretty great this way. And it will also last you for a very long time!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

    1. It is such a beautiful highlighter! And the drugstore price makes it a good option for those who value subtle highlighting effects! I also love how little you really need to make you skin glow with it!


  1. I’ve just ordered this and I can’t wait to use it. I wanted to ask you, do you think it can be used as an all over face powder to get luminous skin? If dusted lightly? Because it seems like a matte highlight to me. I’m NC25-30, for reference.
    Great review, btw! xx

    1. Thank you! I do think you can use it all over the face – with a light hand, of course 😀 it seems like a good highlighter for NC undertones and I think it will look quite nice on NC25/30 skin. It definitely is not matte – it has such a beautiful sheen to it but it is not too shiny or metallic therefore I say it is quite subtle but still is visible on the skin 🙂
