Wet ‘n’ Wild Desert Explorations Geometric Highlighting Powder

Wet ‘n’ Wild Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a new, limited edition highlighting formula for spring that will be available at local drugstores and mass retailers while supplies last. The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with a “silky-smooth texture that is easy to blend.” The texture of the three powders is soft, slightly looser in the pan than ideal (some excess gets kicked up), with medium, buildable coverage and a pearly shimmer. All three shades lasted right around the seven-hour mark for me. They’re nice, and at the price point, some of the more flattering highlighters I’ve tried from the drugstore (often, they are too sparkly/metallic!). I wish Wet ‘n’ Wild would add these or something like it to their permanent range. Good luck hunting these down!

Wet ‘n’ Wild Desert Explorations Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a light, pastel pink with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores. The texture is slightly powdery to work with, but it didn’t look powdery when I applied it to my cheeks. It may add a hint of color on very fair skin tones. This shade wore for seven hours on me. MAC Play It Proper (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Makeup Revolution Peach Lights (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (95% similar). Laura Geller Charming Pink (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Right) (LE, $65.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Devotion (P, $44.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Moonlight (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Crushed Pearl (LE) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Starburst (LE) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Lancome Moonlight Rose (LE, $42.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Adoration (Left) (P) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Sun Ceremony Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow gold with strong yellow tones (but no orange tones, so it looks almost like a “cool” gold) and a smooth, frosted shimmer. It blended out easily and applied with semi-opaque coverage that could be diffused or built-up for lesser or greater coverage as desired. The powder is a little powdery to work with, and it just made the skin look ever-so-slightly powdery when applied. A little extra buffing helped to work the powder into the skin and leave a pearly sheen behind instead (that didn’t emphasize pores). It wore for seven hours on me. Smashbox Glow (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Gold (12) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Routes des Indes de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). bareMinerals The Shining Moment (LE, $26.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).

Wet ‘n’ Wild Where the Dreamers Go Geometric Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.20 oz.) is a pink-tinged white with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. This was the most shimmery/metallic of the three. It had medium coverage that was buildable to opaque payoff if desired, but the lightly powdery, smooth texture made it easy to diffuse and blend on the skin. The shimmer didn’t emphasize pores either, which is always nice. This shade lasted for seven hours before fading. NARS Summer Dual Intensity Blush I (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Burberry No. 01 White (LE, $68.00) is less shimmery, more muted, warmer (90% similar). NYX Ice Queen (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Dior Glowing Pink (001) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Champagne Pink (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). L'Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Delice (78) (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Perles et Fantaisies (Left) (LE, $65.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). L'Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Light Sunshine (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
