A Bronzy, Baked Powder from Wet ‘n’ Wild

Wet ‘n’ Wild Carnaval in Rio To Reflect Shimmer Palette ($4.99 for 0.40 oz.) is a rich, copper-shimmered bronze. Estee Lauder Topaz Chameleon is darker, browner–less coppery. MAC Glorify is similar, slightly darker. MAC Worldly Wealth is less coppery.

It has a soft consistency, and it feels like a finely-milled baked powder, similar to MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinishes but smoother. It has a high-shine, frosted and metallic finish, so there is a great deal of reflection, but there is also a slight emphasis of pores and any natural imperfections in skin texture. Carnaval in Rio has a lot of warmth coming from the orange and copper hues in it, so it acts a bit like a bronzer or warming glow. I suspect that this is going to be particularly lovely on a deeper, warmer complexions. It lasted seven hours, which is a little longer than I get with many baked products, but a little short of the average blush/bronzer.
