First Look: New Limited Edition Bronzers from Wet n Wild

A HUGE thanks to reader Jenny for this one! Jenny spotted a brand new Limited Edition collection of  Wet n Wild bronzers (three different shades) at her local Meijer store recently and she kindly shared pics of the two shades she bought! (Jenny will be sending swatch photos tomorrow, so I'll be sure to post those--check back tomorrow night for them!)

In the meantime, here are two of the three LE bronzers:

These are so new, I don't even have a collection name to share with you yet! Obviously it's a sea-themed collection and I am LOVING it so far!

Jenny said that both shades she purchased have super fine shimmer that looks nearly matte on first glance. She said the shimmer just gives "the slightest glow" to the skin. Also, she said that these bronzers feel smoother in texture than the core collection bronzers (click here for my review of those), which probably has to do with the fact that these don't contain SPF like the core collection bronzers.

Uh oh...I have a feeling this is going to be a sought-after LE collection from Wet n Wild this summer! I see a new sightings map in our future...

Please come back tomorrow for swatches, if you're interested! And thanks again, Jenny, for the fantastic scoop and pics (taken in the rain, even!).

  1. OMG! how cute are they, they kind of look poorly made because of the shapes but they are still cute nonetheless!!!

  2. Don't let the packaging quality fool you! These are so awesome I actually went back to get the last one that I had originally talked myself out of purchasing!

  3. I just saw these at my Meijer on Saturday! I so wanted to get them but my mom would have yelled at me, lol. They had two displays of these actually. One had a few missing, but the other one that was on a lower shelf was still full!

    Can't wait to see the swatch photos!! Might be my decision on if I go back and get one, lol.

  6. I was just at Meijer this afternoon and saw this display~ I purchased Me Shell My Belle. The pink design of the shell in the middle is a really pretty blush and very pigmented to be able to use it alone as a blush- almost looks like a sunburn look- which is a nice color to go with the bronzer. I haven't tried swirling the together to see how it will look- best of all it was only $2.99! BTW Meijer has Physician's Formula 40% off, too.

  7. Are you kidding me? I just bought a WetnWild bronzer today but these are so much cuter! Can anyone tell me if the shell's lighter pigments contain shimmer? Can they be used as a blush or highlight? Thanks!

    1. The 3rd bronzer that isn't listed *yet* has a really light highlight shade... In my opinion, on a shimmer scale of 1-10, I would give these about a 3 or 4. Not super shimmery but gives a beautiful glow.

  12. For all your Meijer purchasers - I would JUMP on this purchase. Not only are they ringing up at $2.99 instead of the displayed $3.99 pricetag but all WNW stuff is also bogo1/2 this week!
