Halo Gorgeous

Wet ‘n’ Wild Halo Gorgeous MegaGlo Liquid Highlighter ($5.99 for 0.50 oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with two to three layers. I recommend waiting for each layer to dry down before building up to maximize coverage and evenness.

The highlighter was thin, slightly watery but was slightly more noticeable and pigmented compared to Rosy & Ready, though the two shades did not look that different on my skin tone (someone with cooler undertones may see more of a difference). The consistency spread well across the skin, and even though it was more watery, it did not lift my foundation when I tried it over a base. I had no trouble blending out the edges with my fingertips. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$5.99/0.5 oz. - $11.98 Per Ounce

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.

I have some of the dupes in powder form, but it’s nice to have a liquid option during the winter, when skin is drier, and the price is right!
