Queen's Land

Wet ‘n’ Wild Queen’s Land Color Icon Bronzer ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a golden sheen. The shimmer was quite fine, so the more I buffed and blended out the bronzer, the more luminous and glowing it appeared (without being overtly shimmery). It had good color coverage in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than a half of a layer on top. The consistency was dense, almost like a powdery cream, and it applied best with a small, buffing brush (I used Sonia G. Face Two). It was fairly blendable, but the very edge took a bit more effort to diffuse, and I did notice that it did not play as well with still-drying or dewier foundations (compared to bare skin/matte skin). It wore well for eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

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.

I got the Fire & Ice box so I have both bronzers. Finger-swatch-wise, they don’t seem very different to me; I don’t wear bronzer anymore, but they’re both good colors to use as eyeshadow, so that’s now their purpose in life (or at least in my stash).

Hmm, I’m trying to pick one of the 3 bronzer to finish up my cart with WnW. This one is certainly dark enough. I just don’t know about the orangey-ness of this one. ?
This tends to be an issue I have with so many bronzer. Either they’re quite light, or if they are geared towards med-tan or darker, then they tend to be orangish.
