Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter ($6.49) is starting to hit the drugstore scene! I picked up two shades recently at Harmons and was pleasantly surprised to find them there since Wet n Wild, like most brands, has started migrating a lot of their seasonal and new releases onto their website directly. I mean, it can take several weeks or even months before a new item to launch in stores once Wet n Wild launches it on their website! It was nice seeing a few new displays pop up at Harmons.

I picked these up because I do so love a blush highlighter hybrid and Wet n Wild has proved they can do one very well when they launched those awesome Flights of Fancy Color Icon Baked Blushes for Spring 2018.

Wet n Wild launched these in three shade selections and each is a split pan much like those brilliant Becca Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector Mineral Blush Duos that launched a few years ago (that they really should revisit and relaunch in new shades in my humble opinion). One side holds a shimmering blush and the other side contains a highlighter. You can sweep the two shades together or use them individually to create a pretty glow on your face.

These come housed in Wet n Wild’s standard black plastic packaging and set me back $5 bucks but are listed as $6.49 on Wet n Wild’s website and each is 0.35 oz in size. They are Made in China but are cruelty-free and not tested on animals.

I picked up After Sex Glow which contains a champagne gold highlighter and a light peach blush and Flash Me which contains a deeper beige highlighter and warm raspberry blush. The texture is very soft and powdery but not chalky nor draw! I found myself tapping excess off my brush before application as no matter how lightly you sweep across the shades you still get a lot of powder. They apply and blend very well on my skin without clinging to drier areas. The finish was smooth with a refreshing and gorgeous glow.

I was disappointed in After Sex Glow which I felt gave me more of a glow versus any color. The blush was sheerer on my skin tone and acted more like a highlighter. I had no such issues with Flash Me. The blush was quite pigmented and when blended with the highlighter created a nice luminous flush on my cheeks. Both shades produced a lasting glow that wore for six hours before showing signs of fading. They both had a very smooth, seamless finish with an intense glow so a little goes go a long way. You can easily use the highlighter shades on your eyes as well should you like.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter didn’t give me the same magic I experienced with the Flights of Fancy Color Icon Baked Blushes but they were a nice little blusher and highlighter duo. I do wish the shade range was a bit better because I can see myself raving these much more if they had some lovely golden corals, peaches, or even some pinks to offer. I don’t think these are a head to the drugstore immediately to purchase item but if you see them in passing or on sale you might want to snag one to try out if you’re a highlighter fan.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter are available now on Wet n Wild’s website and Ulta.

Where to buy

Wet n Wild

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Blushlighter are a new split pan duo featuring a blush and highlighter which can be used together or individually that launched for Spring 2020 in three shades. Each palette is housed in a plastic compact that holds 0.35 oz of product for $6.49. I found the formula soft, finely milled, and quite powdery but not dry or chalky. They apply and blended well with a smooth finish on skin that wasn’t overly frosty or shimmery. The blush shades vary in terms of pigment as the darker duo I hauled called Flash Me had a nice pigmented blush where as the middle shade I purchased, After Sex Glow, was a bit sheerer and acted more as a highlighter than a blush on my skin tone. I used them by sweeping the two shades together to create a pretty glowing flush on my cheeks!

Pros

  • Affordable.
  • Produces a very pretty luminous flush on cheeks.

Cons

  • Limited shade range.
  • Made in China.

    Blushlighter reminds me of Nars Orgasm.. pink and shimmery gold. I loved that blush so this might be a good pick for me!

    Made in China is a con? Why? All of wet n wild cosmetics are Made in China. It is not a good reason to put it as a con, just saying.

    • Isabella Muse

      Made in China isn’t an issue for me but it is a problem for many, many of my readers which is why I listed as a con. I don’t have any problems with Made in China makeup but many of my reader’s avoid purchasing makeup Made in China.

        I didn’t understand at first but it’s good to know. I love wet n wild also thank you for your review. I do appreciate your honesty. I have been following and reading your blogging since 2007.

          I honestly never had an issue with Made in China products. I buy a lot of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese products but for personal reasons a lot of people do not like products made in China due to a wide variety of different issues including animal testing ones (although Wet n Wild does not test on animals). I hope this clarifies! and thank you very much! THAT is super flattering to hear! You’ve been with me since the start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you so much 🙂
