I don’t usually use bronzers/contouring products because I have naturally dusky complexion and my skin tends to tan very easily even from very short exposure to sun. The high point of my face is ironically my high cheek bones, well not that high but I can accentuate them by using appropriate blush. Highlighters are another way to do that and I recently purchased a dual product from my local drug store. Following is my take on it.
Contouring made easy and portable! Wet n Wild Megaglo Dual-Ended Contour Stick is dual-ended for precise application to easily enhance your features. The contouring shade defines and chisels. The highlighter illuminates your best features.
• Highlights, contours, and blends
• Paraben, sulfate, and gluten free
My Take on Wet n Wild Megaglo Dual-Ended Contour Stick – Medium/Tan:
This stick reminds me of the several cream contouring products available these days, particularly in stick form – they make the contouring process easy and quick and is perfect for beginners or people who face time crunch while getting ready.
Packaging: Product is in a stick form with contour product at one end and highlighter at the other – both the ends are protected with a thick, clear plastic cap. This is perfect for those who travel a lot or don’t have a lot of vanity space.
Texture: It’s a cream product and is easy to apply but not that easy to blend and I really wish that it was a bit creamier. I can still make it work and increase the wear time by layering it with a powder bronzer or a translucent powder.
Color: The contour part has light to medium tan color which can be built up to a certain extent. The highlighter is however not meant for warm skin tones because it has pink undertones and would look ghostly on my skin color. Both the colors give a matte finish.
Pigmentation: I didn’t get a chance to use the highlighter because it is not for my skin tone but I enjoyed using the contour a lot especially in the hollows of my cheeks; I just draw one, thin line and blend it to add more depth and definition to face and make my face appear more chiseled.
Wear time: The product lasts entire day or till it is removed or as long as the base makeup stays in place.
Conclusion: This is a very pretty, handy duo and I wish I could use the highlighter as well but alas no such luck but I am sure cool tone beauties can enjoy it. This is product is not expensive but performs beautifully and looks so natural and warm on my skin and is worth a buy.
Pros of Wet n Wild Megaglo Dual-Ended Contour Stick – Medium/Tan:

Cons of Wet n Wild Megaglo Dual-Ended Contour Stick – Medium/Tan:

IMBB Rating: 4/5 (as contour), 2/5 (as a highlighter)
