Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar ($3.99) in Holly Gold Head is a new, limited edition highlighter that launched with the Wet n Wild Sequins and Stardust Holiday 2016 Collection. I purchased this a few weeks ago at Harmons but it is now available on the Wet n Wild Website as of yesterday and still in stock which shocked me. Personally, I’d recommend buying it online since displays at the drugstore merely have one bar each and it’ll likely prove impossible to track down.
The Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar reminds me of the Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold Light-Reflecting Highlighter a little bit! This comes housed in a black compact with a clear plastic lid. I didn’t take a picture of it but I just realized it actually has a little mirror that pulls out from the side! Pretty nifty packaging for under $4 bucks right? The highlighter actually looks like a thick, gold bar (0.22 oz). This is the original Megaglo formula but they repackaged it for the Holidays and gave it a pretty star design.
The highlighter is made up of two shades but the brassy light gold is the dominate shade with a small coppery shade that makes up the star design of the palette. For me, the star’s shade is merely a decoration as it is hard getting to that shade and actually using it. This is an unique gold shade. The color is a brassy gold with a pretty peach reflection in the pan but it applies a pure gold on cheeks and face. This is a fine milled powder with a velvety texture. Initially there’s a fine sparkly over spray over but this dusts off with the first use. The powder beneath is still very, very shimmery. This applies and blends very easily but beware, a little goes a very long way because it does cling to drier areas if you have them. I find a misting of setting refines the finish of the powder on my drier skin. This creates a really pretty golden glow on my cheek bones! Sadly, you can’t get the full effect from my crummy photos below but I did try to capture the glow the best I could.
With highlighters being so very huge at the moment, I picture the Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar being a popular pick! Not to mention it’s a super affordable way to get your glow on this Holiday season! And hey, if highlighting isn’t you thing, no worries, slip a little onto your lids for a pretty foiled eye look.
