Wet N Wild Mega Glo Illuminating Powder Review

Doing Drugstore: Wet N Wild Mega Glo Illuminating Powder

When I think of Wet N Wild, I think of one of two things: a water park extravaganza, or a bubble gum-popping teen cosmetics brand. So, the grown-up in me was surprised to be drawn to the brand's Mega Glo Illuminating Powder ($3.99).

I do have a bit of a soft spot for the brand, seeing as it was on my go-to list of drugstore buys in junior high. This powder is a dynamic combination of a blush, bronzer, and brightener which instantly gave me a rosy-cheeked glow reminiscent of my days of youth, as if I was back in Mrs. Betteridge's eighth-grade homeroom.

The product comes in four shades, each featuring four colors that can be easily blended or worn alone as a blush or eye shadow. After swirling a powder brush into the product to collect the multi-hued shades, I swept it on the apples of my cheeks and lightly touched upon any areas where the sun might naturally hit (tip of nose, around the hairline, eyebrow area, and jawline). I give this illuminating powder high marks for the way it brightens without causing excess shine, the fact that it's a multitasker, the natural sun-kissed look it gave, and the amazing value. Even though I had to reapply it a few times, it still gets a gold star.
