True dat! But I’m lit up with a nice healthy glow. Over the weekend I was putzing around Ulta. I needed a distraction from grocery shopping so I decided to stop by to see if there were any new and inexpensive cosmetics I could discover!
That glow isn’t from a few glasses of wine. It’s from the new liquid highlighter from Wet n’ Wild! Keep reading….
Anyway, I’ve been on a Wet n’ Wild Cosmetics kick for a while now. I just cannot believe how the quality of this brand has improved over the past couple of years. And while I was wandering, I came across a Wet n’ Wild display. What I spotted was a liquid highlighter and naturally I had to buy it.
Highlighters are rather intriguing to me. And they are way overused on Instagram and YouTube. Highlighters are supposed to give a subtle glow and not make you appear like the glare from the sun at 5:30 in the evening when you are driving on the highway back from work!
This Wet n’ Wild MegaGlo Hello Hallo liquid highlighter comes in a small tube/bottle/jar–whatever. I paid $5.99 for 0.5 fluid oz. It may not seem like a ton of product but believe me, a tiny amount goes a long way! As usual, it is a cruelty-free, vegan product.
This is a beautiful highlighter!!
The applicator is a doe foot—which is great for dotting the highlighter on.
This is the perfect applicator for the product!
The color is Rosy and Ready–it’s a beautiful pearlized mauvy-pink and glides on so smoothly. It is very mature-skin friendly and lasts throughout the day.
Here’s what it looks like on my hand. It’s very luminous. That photo at the top of the blog–I took it this morning and the glow lasted all day!
Overall. I give this an A+!!!
Don’t ask me why, but I ended up also purchasing an eyebrow pencil. It was an impulse purchase for sure. Nothing can compare with the Anastasia Dipbrow gel that I use, but for a change, I figured this might be decent.
The pencil? It’s NYX Precision Brow Pencil. The pencil itself is actually nice. A spoolie brush on one side and a retractable eyebrow pencil on the other. Why am I not crazy about it then? OK—I purchased the color taupe and thought it would be more pigmented. I like a dark brow and this just wasn’t dark enough. It isn’t bad but it isn’t great. It cost ten bucks and for eight dollars more, the Dipbrow is far superior.
Quite honestly, I don’t think this is worth the ten dollars I paid for it.
Thankfully, this photo from MakeupAlley provides a better look. The tip is squared off. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t great!
Overall, I rate this a C. Not that impressed, but it isn’t awful!
If you haven’t been reading about the vast assortment of color correcters, I’ll refresh your memory. Do you remember years and years ago, back in the 1970’s when Revlon came out with color correcters in little rectangular bottles? I had the green to hide my redness. It never worked. The product was discontinued.
Color correctors are back. And guess what? I don’t think they do all that much. I purchased the Wet n’ Wild Cushion Corrector. In green. It’s actually pretty good as a regular concealer. The product is hydrating and doesn’t dry up. The coverage is very good. However, regular skin-toned concealers do the same job.
I love the packaging though..
Despite the horrible lighting, this really IS green! There is plenty of product in this little cushion and the coverage is decent. I paid $5.99 for this.
Overall I give it a B+. It isn’t bad at all, but it works more as a concealer and all my concealers cover my redness!
Speaking of green, the company I work for treated everyone to bagels for St. Patrick’s Day! Oy vey! I’m trying to take it easy on carbs but for 6 WW points, I couldn’t resist a raisin cinnamon bagel. No butter or cream cheese kept it at a solid 6 point breakfast. I’m back to tracking! For dinner I made a 9 point omelet filled with mushrooms and two slices of cheese. Tracking will keep me in line!!
This guy greeted everyone in the cafeteria today!
This will go down in history as the year I ate bagels for St. Patrick!
Those are my little reviews for this evening. And the winner in this…
