Did I make it? Is it still Wet n Wild Wednesday?!?! *looks at watch and sees it’s 11:30 p.m.* Okay, we’re good.
I’m ending off the evening with the Wet n Wild Zodiac Collection highlighters.
This starry collection includes five highlighters – four highlighting bars and one loose powder.
The highlighting bars come with a marbled design, embossed with the zodiac signs. They’re named after the elements.
The loose powder comes in a clear container with star-shaped sifting holes (which I think is a really cute touch).
Air is the lightest of the bunch – it’s a frosty pearl shade. Definitely the kind of shade I like to use.
Earth is a golden champagne shade. It reminds me of one of my current favourite highlighters, the Wet n Wild MegaGlow Highlighter is Golden Flower Crown.
Fire is a warm copper shade. My skin tone is too fair for me to pull it off as a highlight, so I’ve been wearing it as a blush (and it works because it’s nicely pigmented).
Water was the one that I was most apprehensive to use. It’s a true blue with a platinum shift. I personally think that the richness of the blue was too colourful of a shade for me to pull off. While I love a good blue highlighter, it has to be pale enough for it to not look weird – I imagine that the recipe for my ideal blue highlight is an icy white with a drop of blue pigment. Needless to say, Water was not a good look for me – it just looked like bruising on me.
Written in the Stars is actually the first loose highlight I’ve ever tried. It was pretty sparkly and much more intense than the pressed highlighters, but it didn’t look as smooth as the highlighting bars. I liked the impact it gave off, although it was a bit messy as any loose powder can be, which made it hard to target a specific area.
The highlighting bars were a consistently good formula. Like previous MegaGlo highlighters, they were easy to pick up with a brush and easy to apply. The powders were pigmented, especially when swatched with my fingertip.
Water definitely wasn’t one that I could make work, but the other four shades were winners. If you looking for a sparkly highlight, definitely check out the loose powder in Written in the Stars.
