Today I have a review and swatch of a Wet n Wild product I have been longing to get my hands on since I’ve seen the release of it in the U.S.A. last year! There has been SO much hype around this product and I love me a good highlighter. As per usual, products always get released in the states first before Canada, and we lag behind sometimes almost over a year before we get it in our stores. So of course, when I saw these in the makeup aisle, I had to pick up both colours – Precious Petals and Crown of My Canopy. Each of these were $6.67 from Walmart.
Precious Petals (L), Crown of my Canopy (R)
I love Wet n Wild. Easily one of my favourite drugstore brands for eyeshadows – they are always buttery soft and pigmented, and the price tag is always more than reasonable. And ya’ll know I love a good deal! However, a thing I am never a fan of with WnW is the packaging of it’s products – it’s cheap (especially the lipsticks – the caps always fall off and the inside of my bag ends up wearing half a tube of the lipstick!) and it sucks. But for the price you’re paying for… you really can’t complain about the packaging. Especially when the product inside is glorious. I can definitely suck it up if I’m paying less than ten bucks for most of the items.
On the left, we have Precious Petals, and on the right we have Crown of my Canopy. Precious Petals is a gorgeous, light rose-gold colour – perfect for highlighting. However, Crown of my Canopy was a hard pass for me in terms of using it as a highlighter. The colour is too dark to put on the tops of my cheekbones, but makes for a beautiful, all-over shimmer bronzer or even a blush topper. If you are darker in skin tone, Crown of my Canopy would definitely work well as a highlighter!
As usual, WnW did not fail to deliver again with pigmentation and consistency of the product. It is buttery, it is highly pigmented without any chunks of glitter in it, and blends like a dream. It’s been my go-to highlighter for the last month! Unfortunately, I have a feeling that this product may have been breaking me out… but that has yet to be confirmed, as my skin has changed drastically the past six months, and many things are still under trial for me.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a budget friendly highlighter! I’m not sure if these are limited edition, but hopefully they are here to stay!
I’ll see you guys next week – I’m planning to do monthly vlogs and the first one will be coming soon! xo
