Wet ‘n’ Wild Glow Watcher MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a pale, bluish-silver with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen with slightly larger bits of sparkle strewn throughout. The powder had a fairly smooth, lightly dusty consistency that made it easy to apply and blend out on my skin, which can be key when working with a less conventional highlighting shade. It had a moderate sheen but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. I felt like this “warmed up” noticeable on my skin tone and looked more like a very light white in practice, particularly when paired with other products (like blush or bronzer). It had good color coverage that stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “silky smooth” texture that is “easy-to-blend.” The shades ranged from semi-opaque to opaque typically with smooth, denser textures that weren't stiff or difficult to work with. A couple of shades seemed a touch drier in the pan but did not appear dry on my skin usually. They blended out nicely and lasted around eight hours on average.
