So I’ve been playing with the Wet N Wild MegaGlo highlighters in Crown of my Canopy and Precious Petals for awhile now and I have to say, I really love them. These were the first drugstore product to truly wow me in a LONG time. They perform just as well as high-end brands. My only problem is there aren’t very many colors to choose from so I was excited when they launched the palette for the holidays, but that was a fail. With that being said let’s get into swatches and pros and cons.
Let’s start with the palette:
Now, this palette is was incredibly disappointing compared to their single pan MegaGlo highlighters. These are FAR more chalky and more glittery than glowy. The colors are rather lackluster as well. I do kind of like Wild Cosmos, it looks like a VERY antique gold in the pan (think going green type of oxidation), but it comes out to a pretty gold on the skin. I don’t think most of these would be very flattering on most skins tones though, so I would say if you’re debating on getting this palette, I would pass.
L-R Crown of My Canopy, Precious Petal & Golden Flower Crown
These I’ve been loving!! They have a buttery texture and on the skin, they have a wet glowy look, which is what I prefer. I’ve been using Crown of my Canopy because I’ve been pretty tan lately and have been wanting a more natural glow, but I’ll use Precious Petals to brighten it up every now and then. I just got Golden Flower Crown, and this is such a pretty color and can’t wait to get it on my cheekbones, but it’ll definitely be brighter than I need for a while. I did want to compare these to the Dose of Colors DesixKaty Highlighters because the tones look very similar and the effect is actually very similar, so here are swatched below:
As you can see, they’re not dupes, but definitely similar. Mirame looks like almost a mix of the two, but with more of a golden reflect.
These are a far more obvious difference. Fuego is warmer with a yellow undertone and Golden Flower Crown is more of a champagne tone. Golden Flower Crown is definitely going to be more fair skin friendly.
Considering these are only $4.99 on Ulta, I’d say these are a good inexpensive highlighter and I definitely would rebuy these. The next drugstore highlighter I want to try is the Maybelline Master Chrome, but it’s been sold out everywhere I look. If you have the MegaGlo and Master Chrome highlighters, let me know how you feel about both of them and if there’s a big difference between them.
