Go With the Glow
Wet ‘n’ Wild Go With the Glow MegaGlo Liquid Highlighter ($5.99 for 0.50 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The thinner consistency made it easy to simply apply a lot less product and get sheerer coverage if desired, though.
The formula was surprisingly foolproof to work with as the product blended out nicely and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture–sometimes deeper, liquid-based colors seem to sit in my pores and give me the effect of polka dots on my cheeks. There was a noticeable, dewy sheen on my skin, but the product did not feel tacky to the touch. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have "buildable" coverage that is "hydrating" and will help "smooth out the skin's texture." The doefoot applicator made it practical to apply the highlighter onto the face for spot highlighting, but for those who prefer to mix a liquid highlighter into other products (like primer, moisturizer, and foundation), it may not be as useful as a dropper, though I think you can get enough product off the doefoot applicator for mixing if desired.
The highlighter was thin enough to feel like a liquid, work for spot highlighting or mixing in with other products, but still had medium pigmentation. It spread beautifully over the skin with a brush or fingertips, though I prefer fingertips when working over a base (like foundation) to gently pat and spread the product and using the edges of my fingertip to diffuse the highlighter. The formula did exceptionally well over foundation and never lifted mine up (and I used some drier, more matte formulas with it). The highlighters lasted between eight and nine hours on me.
I was surprised that the product actually came in a glass bottle, as I would have expected plastic, and in a way, I might have preferred plastic for fear of the glass breaking in a bag, though it's not uncommon for liquid highlighters to come in a glass bottle.

These loook soooo nice. Can’t wait to see what th lighter ones look like because I am very fair, RInforest of the sea in porcelain, and would love to get a couple. Also, really like the applicator on these. Just wish WNW would have left their eye shadows alone. :/
I hope the light ones work well, too!
I love the look of the consistency. I don’t really like the Cover FX drops as I have dry skin and they make my skin look like leather, at least to me it does. Thanks for the reviews!
I think these are a bit less metallic re: shimmer particles but have a similar dewy finish, but I hope these work for you if you end up trying a shade 🙂
Wrong colour for me, but promising for the others to come
Fingers crossed for ya 🙂
I’m really happy these are performing well and at a great price point. I’m definitely buying this too. haha
They are stunning on!
