Holly Gold-head

Wet ‘n’ Wild Holly Gold-head MegaGlo Highlighting Gold Bar ($4.99 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, slightly denser consistency that applied evenly to my cheeks and blended out with little effort. There was a noticeable sheen but wasn’t quite to the level of a truly metallic finish. The highlighter was dense enough not to have any excess product kicked up in the pan, but I had no trouble picking up product using a tapered highlighting brush. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

If I saw only the swatches and cheek application, I would have easily imagined this to be a mid to high end highlighter. That’s how good this one looks! 🌟

Love the shade and quality of this highlighter. Again too dark for me but the real show stopper here are those earrings. You have the most beautiful earrings, Christine and your fashion sense and shade choice means they just enhance the makeup look you have on. Really beautiful.
