Wet ‘n’ Wild Air MegaGlo Highlighting Bar ($6.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a pale pink with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers. The powder was soft, more loosely pressed to the point where it seemed a little drier/dustier in the pan, but I didn’t notice any of that in practice as I tapped on the highlighter on my cheek bones. It applied evenly and diffused beautifully along the edges, and as I blended the powder onto my skin, it looked “melted” and yielded a smooth sheen that did not accentuate my skin’s texture. It wore well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.30 oz. - $23.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to yield a "lit-from-within glow" that "delivers a strobing effect" with a "super-smooth" texture. All of the shades felt a little dusty, a bit dry, in the pan and by the touch, but they applied beautifully and sat well on my skin--they almost "melted" onto the skin for a very smooth, luminous sheen. The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, but the ones that weren't full coverage were buildable. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

Sephora Aloha Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was smooth, creamy, and had moderate slip and felt a touch wet initially, but it dried down fast enough that it didn’t feather or get into my fine lines. It wore well for 10 and a half hours on me before it started to thin noticeably.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.04 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "pigmented" with "one stroke" application that is "waterproof" and lasts for "12 hours." I've been a long-time fan of the formula for its variety of shades that are typically pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable to apply, and easy to work with--they aren't too tough to remove nor do they take too long (or dry down too quickly) to dry. The matte shades tend to be the best, while the shimmery shades are good but can be semi-opaque at times. The glittery/sparkly shades have the most inconsistency, usually with respect to pigmentation. They tend to wear around 10 hours on me.

Soft and Sultry

Milani Soft and Sultry 12-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.48 oz.) contains a mix of neutrals, taupes, and deep gray/black hues. It has “smoky eye” written all over it. For someone who regularly uses eyeshadow primer and prefers to build up some of their mid-tone shades, I think it would work just fine, but my experience was that several of the matte shades were a little too powdery to remain pigmented in practice, had some fallout, and overall, the formula used in the palette was shorter-wearing than average. Used over primer, they lasted longer (12 hours), but they did show fading/creasing sooner than better formulas, even over primer.
