Wet n Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick Highlighter - Review and Swatches
Dec 28, 2017 - Zubaida -
This year liquid and cream highlighters become equally popular to powder highlighter as they are more pigmented and are long lasting. Once you get to know the right way to apply them, they can be your favorites. As Wet n Wild produced many other products, they also introduced MegaGlo Makeup Sticks in many shades which included blusher, concealer, corrector, contour and highlighter sticks. I had picked their highlighter stick called When The Nude Strikes which i am going to review today.
- Velvety, cream-to-powder formula
- Ultra-blendable on the skin
- Ease of precision and control
This highlighter stick comes in plastic twistable packaging with transparent plastic lid. The packaging of stick indicate the shade of product inside which is really good. The packaging looks sturdy and travel friendly. The tube contains chubby highlighter inside and with out twisting from bottom this product can last for months however the tube is not filled with product, it only contains it till Wet n Wild black strip on top. There is no any noticeable smell to this product.
The color When The Nude Strikes is champagne shimmery shade with very pale pink hint to it. It is not very shimmery or glittery and instead gives a glowing touch. The texture of this stick is quite thick and in this cold season it is not melting. I wonder if in summers it will become more soft. I apply it after foundation application and before any powder product. As it is thick product, you have to swipe on the area you want to highlight instead of dotting. You can tap it with fingers to blend or use beauty blender. If you want to use brush, you need to pick thick brush instead of fluffy ones like Sigma 4DHD Kabuki brush or Real Technique expert brush.
It gives a lovely champagne pink, kind of pale rose gold, highlights to your skin and looks absolutely stunning. This shade is good enough to wear everyday or for glamorous look as it can be sheered out or built for intense look. As i said the texture is thick, if you are wearing layers of makeup, you might find it tricky to apply it on top of foundation layers as it might rub them a little. I hope in summers it become little soft. However as i only prefer a sigle layer of foundation, i love using it every day and some time on bare skin. It is very long lasting as well compared to powder highlighters. It stays for more then 5 hours and doesn't look patchy while fading.

Overall i loved this shade and the formula. It is little hard textured but once blended gives a stunning glow. For the price this highlighter stick is perfect for everyday to glamorous look.
