This is another Wet n Wild highlighter that I bought along with “Halo Goodbye.” I bought these two liquid highlighters in the hopes of finding cheaper substitutes for Coverfx liquid highlighters. Although they are not perfect dupes of the one I love from Coverfx, they are still not as disappointing as one would expect a drugstore highlighter to be. They perform really well and the effort from Wet n Wild is commendable.
Intense is the name of the game with this buildable liquid highlighter that delivers a multi-shimmer glow thanks to its shimmering pearl pigments. The hydrating formula is infused with powerhouses like Murumuru Seed Butter, Grapeseed Oil, and Vitamin E to help smooth out the skin’s texture. You’ll look radiant–even after a sleepless night.
My Experience with Wet n Wild Megaglo Liquid Highlighter Halo Gorgeous:
This product comes in a tiny glass bottle, with a twist-up cap. The cap has a doe-foot applicator which is larger in size than the usual ones we see with lip gloss and liquid lipsticks. There are 7 shades to choose from in this highlighter range and they vary from bright silver with pink tint to an all-out tan bronze. I bought two shades from this range – Halo Goodbye and Halo Gorgeous. I expect a liquid highlighter to blend well with the base makeup and add luminosity to the face. Finally, after the look is complete, it can be further layered on at the high points of face. I did the same with this product and was happy that it worked well when I mixed it with my foundation.
It has the usual glitter particles with cool pink tint to it and I have come to realize with endless experiments with makeup products that for highlighter and blush, I should opt for cool tones to not draw attention to my blue under-eye area or pigmented area, hence the pink tint works in my favor. But again, like I mentioned before, it comes in 7 different shades and one can find a highlighter with appropriate undertones that will complement their skin tone.
I use it on my base makeup and also apply it to the high points of my face. I dot it on the high points of my cheek points, a tiny amount on the bridge of my nose and the residual highlighter on my fingers goes on my forehead and chin. It dries quickly, so has to be blended before it sets. I do not like when glitter particles of highlighters spread all over the face; fortunately, that does not happen with this product. However, it does make facial pores appear larger, but since that’s the case with most of the highlighters, I can make peace with it. A pore-covering primer is useful in such a case.
Pros of Wet n Wild Megaglo Liquid Highlighter Halo Gorgeous:
- It is an affordable liquid face highlighter and one cannot go wrong with it, especially for the money paid.
- This range has 7 different shades.
- The bottle is made up of glass and does not feel cheap at all.
- It adds luminosity to the skin whenmixed with base makeup.
- It is a good affordable substitute to more expensive, high-end liquid highlighters.
- The glitter particles do not spread on other parts of face.
Cons of Wet n Wild Megaglo Liquid Highlighter Halo Gorgeous:
- It does accentuate facial pores and a good pore minimizing primer is required underneath.
- The bottle might be a bit bulky for some of us and is perhaps not so travel friendly.
- I wish the ingredients list had a fewer chemicals (it puts me off when I see a long list of complex-sounding chemicals).
- It dries quickly, so has to be blended quickly.
These highlighters are a good attempt by Wet n Wild. They are perfect for all those who do not want to spend $42 on Coverfx liquid highlighter. Although, it is not a perfect dupe, it will make do for most of us.
