My Experience with Wet n Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick Highlighter When The Nude Strikes:
Packaging: First things first, the packaging is very simple. This highlighter comes housed in the form of a chubby makeup stick which looks really cute. They are creamy sticks which are closed by a plastic cap. The cap sits securely in place. The colour of the makeup stick is analogous to the colour of the highlighter stick. You will clearly get an idea of the makeup stick inside by seeing the colour-coded body of the product. The shade name is written on the body of the stick, but I did not find any details about the ingredients of the product. Since this creamy stick is really small in size, there will be no issues in carrying it in your handbag. Overall, the packaging is sturdy and travel-friendly.
Shade: The shade “When the nude strikes” is a beautiful pale-toned pinkish champagne coloured highlighter. The colour is not completely pink, but it is more of a pearly colour which is best for the right glow. It looks very poppy and bright. Usually, this type of highlighter shade complements fairer skin tones very well. I just wish Wet n Wild launches some more highlighter shades keeping in mind the needs of dusky beauties. It acts like an instant glow bomb and brightens your face.
Pigmentation: This highlighter stick is very creamy and has a nice pigmentation. One to two swipes and you get a beautiful, subtle glow on the highlighted points of your face. It blends on the skin evenly and it is easy to layer this product. The intensity is very easy to control with this type of highlighter sticks. I love the subtle highlight that it gives to my cheeks and only a little quantity goes a long way. This definitely is my go-to highlighter for now. I am so impressed with the intense pigmentation and that too at such an affordable price tag.
Texture: The texture of this chubby stick is very creamy and feels buttery soft on skin. It glides on my cheeks so smoothly and gives my cheeks a wet kind of glowing look. It blends flawlessly and my skin looks so radiant after putting this on. It feels very comfortable on the skin. The highlighter contains very fine micro-particle sized shimmer pigments which goes unnoticeable when applied. So, you will never end up looking like a glitter factory.
I swirl the makeup stick on my cheeks in circular motions and then smudge it with my fingers to get that perfect look. Another way of using this stick is to dab some product on your hands and then use a highlighting brush to apply it on the apple of your cheeks for a bright pop of glow. The application in this case is neater and more precise. You can even blend it using makeup sponges.
To make this highlighter last long, use it over a setting powder. I had no issues layering this product over a setting powder. I have used it underneath my liquid foundation and it looked so pretty. You can use this as a base for your powder highlighter. It works fine in that way also. However, this is not transfer-proof. It does transfer slightly if comes in contact with objects.
Staying Power: Staying power of this product varies depending on your way of using it. If you are simply using it on bare face, it lasts for 3-4 hours. If applied over a primer or a setting powder, it lasts for about 6-7 hours. However, if you are sweating, the intensity of the glow slowly fades away as the formulation is super creamy. It gets easily removed with any makeup remover or micellar water.
Overall: This highlighter is absolutely fantastic. The glow is stunning and it delivers a very good strobing effect. Whether you wear it on bare face or after applying your makeup, it gives you the most beautiful gleaming effect. I love this highlighter beyond words and I will repurchase it until I find a better one at this price value.
