Royal Calyx

Wet ‘n’ Wild Royal Calyx MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. There were larger sparkles within this shade compared to others within the range, and there was some emphasis of my skin’s natural texture when applied at semi-opaque coverage or greater.

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “silky smooth” texture that is “easy-to-blend.” It had a slightly drier, looser texture compared to the other shades in the line-up, which might have been due to the larger sparkles in it. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers. For me, the color applied decently but took more effort to diffuse and blend out on the cheeks, though it was achievable without using every trick in the book. The highlighter lasted for just over eight hours on my cheeks before turning patchy.

Rose Champagne

Wet ‘n’ Wild Rose Champagne Color Icon Blush ($2.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a soft peach with warm undertones and fine, gold pearl. It had a subtle shimmer-sheen finish that became softly luminous when buffed and blended out on the skin.

The brand says that it’s supposed to be a “buildable, blendable powder” with “long-lasting color.” It had good pigmentation that was buildably from mostly opaque to opaque. The blush had a fairly soft, lightly dusty texture that was blendable on the skin and easy to work with, especially if you’re someone who can be heavy-handed with blush. The color itself is on the lighter end of the spectrum, so it would be something that would show up more visibly on fairer skin tones than my light-medium complexion, where it worked more as a highlighter than a blush. It lasted well on my skin for seven and a half hours.

Botanic Dream

Wet ‘n’ Wild Botanic Dream MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with stronger, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The finish was more metallic as I diffused and blended out the powder on the skin, but it did not seem to accentuate the look of my skin’s natural texture.

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “silky smooth” texture that is “easy-to-blend.” The highlighter was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, which made it easy to use as well as to control the amount of product picked up on a brush. It was nicely pigmented with nearly opaque coverage in a single layer. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Pearlescent Pink

Wet ‘n’ Wild Pearlescent Pink Color Icon Blush ($2.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with a golden shimmer. After blending out the powder, the finish was more of a satin sheen.

The brand says that it’s supposed to be a “buildable, blendable powder” with “long-lasting color.” The consistency was slightly drier with moderate amounts of excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but I had no trouble blending and diffusing the edges of the blush on my skin, and I did not feel like it looked dry applied. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

Bloody Mary

NYX Bloody Mary Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-red with very strong, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a half a layer more on top. The lipstick had more of a velvety feel and was slightly firmer in the tube compared to others in the range, and it seemed to cling more noticeably on. This shade wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, but was moderately drying to me.

The Matte Lipstick is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “velvety, non-glossy” finish. In general, the formula has semi-opaque to opaque color coverage with a velvety texture that glides on without tugging but doesn’t have a lot of slip, so the lipstick won’t slide around while worn. The formula varied from non-drying to moderately drying with wear times that ranged from four to over six hours (deeper, reddish shades lasted quite long). It has a mint scent and no discernible taste. I noticed that the packaging had a tendency to twist up the lipstick too easily (even barely holding it) and sometimes would twist down as I would apply it directly from the tube.

Blossom Glow

Wet ‘n’ Wild Blossom Glow MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a very pale, whitish pink with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It almost read beige on my skin tone at times, and I thought it might have had a duochrome shift but not so much.

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “silky smooth” texture that is “easy-to-blend.” It had a smoother consistency that wasn’t quite silky but never felt rough or too loose in the pan. I felt like it looked smoother on the skin than it felt in the pan, and I had no trouble blending or diffusing the highlighter on my cheek bones. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation but was forgiving enough, as the texture was moderately dense, to simply use less to achieve a sheerer effect if desired. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight hours.
