Expert Reviews

Wet n' Wild might be a brand known for their low prices, but that doesn't mean their products are low-quality: Many of their makeup offerings are top-notch, and that includes MegaGlo Makeup Stick Highlight.

This swivel-up stick highlighter comes a in a no-frills container but that's welcomed because it's simple and straightforward to use, and it does what it says. Its emollient texture means it glides across skin with ease and is a breeze to blend. Because of that texture, and the fact that this maintains a dewy appearance all day, it's best for those with normal, dry, or combination skin.

At the time of this review, only a single, silvery shade is available, but it's workable for numerous skin tones. It isn't sparkly or overly shiny, it just provides a subtle sheen that gives skin an attractive glow.

This fragrance-free highlighter also performs well, lasting throughout a standard work day without fading. It's another great offering from Wet n' Wild, and a true beauty bargain!

Pros:
  • Easy to apply and blend.
  • Gives skin an attractive glow.
  • Doesn't fade throughout the day.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.

Brand Overview

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.
