When the highlighting game really started to pick up steam, I grabbed both this product in Precious Petals and the MegaGlo Makeup Stick. This won out against the MegaGlo stick as far as my personal preferences go, and really changed my perception of Wet n Wild as a brand. The 10+ hour longevity of shine on this product, and the simplicity of application to get a full look, are both a 5/5 for me. This is now a permanent fixture in my makeup bag. I haven’t seen any signs of powder fall from my face.
I use a smaller angled contour brush and swipe it a little bit under my eyes and occasionally under my eyebrows. Considering I use this almost daily, I still have about half of the powder left, and it’s been close to a year. For $5… not too bad! I’ll be sad if they ever discontinue it (although, the highlighting trend is bound to die off at some point… right?)
There are several shades of this product. My favorite is Precious Petals, I think that has the best glow. I’ve also used Blossom Glow, but I didn’t think the coloration looked as good on my skin. Finally, I’ve tried White Raven, which I think was a limited edition. I’m not sure what I had in my head when I bought it in terms of what I was going to do with it, because it was really… white. Duh! It still did the job as well as Precious Petals in terms of holding up, just wasn’t a color I ever should have bought in the first place.
Without being too “loud”, this powder highlighter makes a long-lasting statement, and I recommend every makeup fan to pick up this $5 buy. ~A
