Makeup Wars: Best of Wet n’Wild

Purchased by me


This week our Makeup Wars bloggers are talking about their favorite Wet n’ Wild products. The brand has a been a drugstore staple for eons and often the first makeup brand teens turn to because it’s so inexpensive. But hold on beauties….just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s not great, there a few jewels to be had here. One of my favorites is the MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99).

I’m amazed at how soft, smooth, blendable AND pigmented these are! There is no glitter and they are not chunky or chalky. You can use for a subtle glow or build them up for a “see from outer space” effect. These have been such a hit with consumers, WnW added 7 new shades! Pictured above is Blossom Glow, an icy white with a pink undertone. In addition to the original Precious Petals and Crown of My Canopy, new to the line are: Diamond Lily, Precious Petals, Botanic Dream, Royal Calyx and Golden Flower Crown. There is a shade for every skin tone. As if that’s not enough, the design is worthy (and reminiscent) of a high-end brand. The embossed floral pattern is stunning!

If you prefer liquid highlighters over powder, then check out the Wet n’ Wild MegaGlo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighter ($5.99). They are available in 7 shades from a cool white to a warm bronze. I got Halo, Goodbye a pretty pale pink and a total dupe for Benefit’s High Beam Liquid Highlighter which is 4 times the price! These little lights deliver a multi-shimmer glow thanks to its shimmering pearl pigments. The hydrating formula is infused with Murumuru Seed Butter, Grapeseed Oil, and Vitamin E to help smooth out the skin’s texture. They have a big doe foot applicator that makes it easy-peasy to sweep on cheekbones.

Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Blush ($2.99) is a blend of sheer and radiant. They are so pigmented you must use a light hand when applying yet they are lightweight and not chalky. Amazing for a price of $2.99! They wear well and there is no streaking or fading. I have Fantastic Plastic Pink, a cool pink with sparkle. I see the sparkle in the pan but it doesn’t translate to my skin. If you like shimmery blushes, you may not like this shade.
