Bronze Dynasty

Wet ‘n’ Wild Bronze Dynasty Color Icon Bronzer ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a golden sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out fairly well. The consistency was soft and smooth to the touch with a moderate density that gave it more of a powder-cream hybrid feel overall. It applied best with a denser brush, and I liked buffer brushes as they seemed to distribute the bronzer well to bare skin and blended out the edges more readily than fluffier brushes. There was a natural sheen on my skin that was noticeable but did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

Formula Overview

$4.99/0.38 oz. - $13.13 Per Ounce

The formula was more like a cream-powder hybrid, as the powder had a lot of slip and felt very smooth to the touch without being powdery, and it was on the denser side. It applied best with a circular, small-to-medium buffer brush or an otherwise moderately dense brush as it picked up product more evenly and dispersed it well. The product had medium to opaque coverage, depending on the shade, but they were buildable if they were not opaque in one layer. They blended out fairly well, but they can be tricky to blend over damp foundation--they seemed more reactive to residual moisture/oiliness on the skin compared to the average powder bronzer. I'd recommend lightly dusting translucent powder over your complexion products if they do not dry down to a semi-matte or matte finish.

This one is probably the prettiest of all 3. It has a “natural” tan glow to it that just seems like it could be a flattering shade for many. Especially those who fall somewhere within the lt.-med to tan ranges, possibly even tan-dark NC42-43. While I love the depth of You’re Dragon Me Down, I also love the glow of this one.

I wish I had gotten this one instead of one of the other two in the kit — on the skin they’re pretty much identical, whereas this one has a different undertone.

I was scared to pick this up because it looked really dark for my skin tone (MAC NW10), but it actually applies really beautifully. I used the bronzer brush they have with this collection.
