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.
