A few weeks ago, Wet N Wild Beauty launched two new shades of the cult-favorite MegaGlo Highlighting Powders. I ordered the two lighter shades in 'Blossom Glow' and 'Golden Flower Crown' for $4.99 each. They also released two deeper shades in 'Botanic Dream' and 'Royal Calyx.'
If you're trying to achieve a "wet" highlighter look, these are perfect for just that and more! All shades give off a buildable metallic sheen without the chunkiness of glitter.
One of my favorite things about this highlighter is its versatility. You can achieve a healthy, luminous glow or build it up to a blinding beam of light.
Fan brush: I used the Sephora Collection PRO Fan Brush #65 and although it applied a nice and even sheen layer, I experienced quite a bit of fallout. Glitter flecks had made their way to the sides of my nose, contour and even chin.
I suggest this method if you're looking for a very natural wash of color. Just remember to tap off excess product.
Domed highlighting brush: This was my favorite way of applying this highlighter. I used the e.l.f. Highlighting Brush and had the best color-payoff with this method. I didn't experience any fallout because by using a denser brush, it allowed me to buff glitter chunks and micro-glitters away leaving a true metallic sheen.
You'll need to be light-handed and have some patience with this method.
I was able to get approximately eight hours of wear before noticing the product dulling down throughout the rest of the day.
- soft to the touch
- glitter fallout with some application techniques

For nearly five bucks, you get intense color-payoff and an expensive looking glow. Go ahead, get your glow on!
