MegaGlo Highlighting Powder
If you've been looking to wear the highlighted look that's all the rage these days, Wet n' Wild's MegaGlo Highlighting Powder is a great, wallet-friendly way to do it!
This highlighting powder comes in a straightforward compact. The texture is buttery-smooth, easy to pick up with a brush, and not too powdery upon application.
This highlighting powder goes on somewhat sheer at first, but is easy to build up if you're looking for a more intense glow.
Currently you have your pick of two shades: A shimmery champagne and a coppery rose, but both are lovely and work for a variety of skin tones. The finish gives skin a lit-from-within glow and sheen without looking overly glittery or frosty.
The really great aspect of this fragrance-free powder is in its staying power! It doesn't fade or migrate one bit throughout an entire work day, and looks just as attractive on bare skin as it does over makeup. We have another winner from Wet n' Wild!
- Buttery smooth texture.
- Easy to build color intensity.
- Attractive shimmery finish.
- Wears well throughout the day.
- Looks beautiful on bare skin or over makeup.
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.
