Brand Overview

This beauty bargain gets the job done in terms of setting makeup and adding light coverage. The soft, pressed-powder texture can be a bit powdery as you sweep your brush across the compact (which is what we'd recommend applying this with; not the included sponge), but once on the skin, you'll get smooth, lightweight coverage.

Coverall Pressed Powder has enough pigmentation to even out skin tone, but not so much so that it looks heavy or chalky. The addition of mica to the formula provides a subtle light-reflective quality that enlivens skin without looking too shiny.

Given the absorbent nature of this powder, it's best suited for normal to oily/combination skin. Shades come in several neutrally flattering, natural colors for light to medium-tan skin tones. This pressed powder is fragrance-free and suitable for sensitive skin.

  • Evens out skin tone without looking heavy or chalky.
  • Subtle light-reflective quality enlivens skin without looking shiny.
  • Soft, pressed-powder texture blends on smoothly.
  • Absorbent finish keeps excess oil in check.
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Bargain price!
  • Texture means it can be a bit flyaway (messy) as you sweep your brush across the compact.

Wet 'n' Wild At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive, good tinted moisturizer with sunscreen; some attractive bronzing powders; mostly good eyeshadow and lipstick options.

Weaknesses: Unimpressive concealers; large assortment of average to poor eyelining products; the mascaras do little to impress; some lip products suffer from the inclusion of irritants; the makeup brushes.

Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.
