Winter Falls in LA
Wet ‘n’ Wild Winter Falls in LA MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is a pale, warm white with a pearl that shifted from green to blue paired with a metallic finish. The consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly not too softly pressed in the pan. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and diffused easily along the edges. The highlighter gave a noticeable sheen on my skin but did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.
