Ticket to Brazil
Wet ‘n’ Wild Ticket to Brazil Color Icon Bronzer ($4.99 for 0.38 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It was more gold than peach or brown when swatched and applied to my skin. The texture felt denser, though smooth, and seemed thicker; I could feel that “gel-infused” property to it as it seemed almost like a crumbly cream if I pushed at it with the back of a brush. It picked up better with a brush than I expected, but I did prefer a denser, more circular/flat-topped brush (almost like a buffer brush but smaller), as it seemed to pick up product more evenly and distributed it more evenly to my skin as a result. The product spread and blended out nicely on my skin without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

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.
