Continuing on with my Wet n Wild posts, I have a First Impressions on some new liquid highlighters, their Mega Glo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighters. I LOVE their Mega Glo Highlighting Powders and definitely think they rival high end highlighters like Becca! I had ‘high’ hopes for these, so lets see how they swatch!
There are a total of 7 shades in this range; I have 6 to show you today:
- Halographic – a pink-toned, white
- Halo, Goodbye – a light pink
- Rosy and Ready – a purple-violet
- Guilded Glow – a light gold
- Goddess Glow – a true gold
- Go with the Glow – a bronze
The colour I don’t have a swatch of is Halo Gorgeous (which will be an online exclusive).
The packaging itself is pretty luxe for the drugstore. They are housed in a glass container with a twist off top. The applicator is a HUGE doe foot applicator which I think is good for initially putting down the product. You’ll definitely have to blend this once you put the product down, and I’ve been doing so with my fingers.
Apologies for my chipped nail polish, but I didn’t want to crop this, so just so you could see the magnitude of the doe foot! I do have to say that since the packaging is all glass, you have to be a bit careful when storing or handling these!
In terms of formulation when you blend them out, they feel oily to the touch which is fine with me just because I feel they blend well into the skin. When you blend them out, the stark pigmentation is lost a bit, but it’s interesting to see how the undertone stays. These are very sparkly highlighters. When blended, they have noticeable flecks of glitter which might not float everyone’s boat. I personally really like the look it gives. This is definitely not a subtle highlight!
Halograhic – Halo, Goodbye – Rosy and Ready – Guilded Glow – Goddess Glow – Go with the Glow
Next up to the swatches, These were applied to the skin with just the doe foot applicator and I didn’t blend them out. As you can see, these have some major pigmentation to them. You can clearly see that each of them are unique and have a different undertone to them.
Personally, my favourites are the 3 lightest shades. Halographic is probably my favourite of the whole bunch just based on how unique it is. It gives that white glow, with flecks of pink! So pretty! The darker 3 shades are almost just too dark for me. I’m glad they have the range though, so depending on your skintone, you can pick a colour that works.
Price point, similar to other Wet n Wild products, are extremely affordable. They will retail for $7.99 CAD when they are released in December 2017. I think this is a great intro to liquid highlighters. Personally, I don’t have any liquid highlighters so I can’t really compare to the Becca ones. These are perfect for me in the sense that I don’t want to spend a lot on a product that I don’t know how much i’ll use. I definitely recommend them!
Thanks so much for reading! Hope this was helpful! Mark your calendars for Dec 2017 to grab these on wetnwildbeauty.com or mass retailers in Feb 2018!
