REVIEW: Wet N Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Blossom Glow

by - February 23, 2018

Aside from the new eyeshadow palettes, if there was one thing I was most excited to see coming to stores here in Canada, it was definitely the Wet N Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Blossom Glow. I'm basically a massive fan of the Megaglo highlighter in the shade Precious Petals, but when they released a lighter shade and I heard some absolutely incredible things about the shade and formula for pale skinned people, I was 100% on board for trying it out and was even tempted to pay the insane shipping costs to Canada. Luckily, didn't have to. I found this in store recently and I've been using it consistently to see if it lived up to my hopes.

Shimmer and shine in all the right places with the same formula as our must-have MegaGlo Highlighting Powder. Back by popular demand, our #1 highlighting powder is here to stay! Its ultra-pearly finish and easy-to-blend formula makes it a fan favorite! The silky smooth, highly-pigmented powder gives an all over glow when applied to the cheek bones, brow bone, and cupid's bow.

While there were a lot of new releases from Wet N Wild that I wasn't sure I was going to pick up, there was absolutely no way that I wasn't getting my hands on this highlighter. This shade isn't entirely new, it has been available online for quite some time, but in this line the only two shades available in stores here in Canada were Precious Petals and Crown Of My Canopy. See below for comparison swatches between Blossom Glow and Precious Petals.

This highlighter comes packaged in a simple black square packaging with a square pane. I think what makes it feel a little bit special is the floral texture in the product itself, which stays a surprisingly long time even with consistent use. It's just such a beautiful pan that I can hardly believe it's so affordable. Like I said about the Precious Petals highlighter, if this pan was in slightly more luxurious packaging, I would believe I was using a much higher end product.

The formula of this highlighter is absolutely gorgeous. It's a smooth baked gelée formula the sits really beautifully on the skin and doesn't have any obvious shimmer in it - just straight out glow. I like to apply this with my Real Techniques Setting Brush and kind of buff it in a little bit and I find the effect really, gorgeous. The formula picks up really beautifully on the brush and I don't really find myself having to work hard with it at all. It also lasts really well and I find that I still have a glow at the tops of my cheeks after a long work day.

I know that, like me, a lot of pale girls struggled with the options that have been available in stores from Wet N Wild because even Precious Petals, the lightest shade, was a little bit golden and deep. I could make it work - and I did because I absolutely love it - but there was no doubt that Blossom Glow, which is a much lighter, cool toned shade, was going to be better for me. 

Guys, I just absolutely love this shade. For light skin, even the palest skin, there really isn't a highlighter that comes anywhere near this one in the drugstore. I think my biggest struggle with highlighter has always been that they have too much yellow to their undertone and while that has changed recently I find a lot of the cooler toned highlighters end up too pink or lilac. This shade fits really perfectly into that space where it's light enough but not too icy and cool enough but not too pink or purple. It's just kind of perfect.

You can really see the difference in the undertones and depths when you see Blossom Glow and Precious Petals swatched next to each other, I think. Like I said, on my skin tone I can make Precious Petals work, but I generally need to warm up my skin with a generous amount of bronzer and be a little bit careful in my application. With Blossom Glow, it's seriously just a slap it on type of product.

I'm gonna go ahead and declare this one of my personal favorite products available in the drugstore. Period. The formula is absolutely on point and makes me think of a much higher cost product and the shade is absolutely perfect for light skin tones, particularly if you're like me and you've been searching for something that isn't too icy or too pink toned. The formula is pretty much perfection in my opinion as well. If you're on the fair to light skin tone range, I highly, highly recommend picking this up. And for medium and deeper skin tones, I recommend trying one of the other shades in this line.

The Wet N Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Blossom Glow is popping up in Wet N Wild displays across Canada now, so keep an eye out!
