Wet n Wild Megaglo Illuminating Palette in Catwalk Pink


Contouring, Highlighting, Strobing, and more are all the rage right now! Everyone seems to love piling on the shimmer until they’re almost blinding others. AND I’M TOTALLY ON BOARD. However, so many highlighters are crazy expensive, so I was psyched to find this wet n wild megaglo Illuminating Palette for only $4!wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-2-5

The pan is HUGE and contains 4 different shimmering powders. From left to right it includes a light gold, a pinkish white, a rosy pink, and a bronzy tan. Each strip is a little under an inch wide, so you get tons of product.wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-2

As you can see, this palette works wonderfully as a highlighter. I used a blend of the two left shades on my under-eye, cheekbone, forehead, and the bridge of my nose. I also use the rosy pink as a blush. All together they help brighten my face, hide dark circles, and blur imperfections.wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-3

I love that the colors can be worn alone or blended depending on your goals or skin tone. The palette color name is Catwalk Pink, which I think is misleading, since only half of the shades have pinkish tones.wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-4-5

I have also used the two left shades as highlighters on my brow-bone and inner eye corner, and they blend beautifully.  wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-4

Since I am very fair-skinned, these shades really pop on my face. They are pretty pigmented though, so I think they would flatter anyone!

I love this illuminating palette because it adds an iridescent shimmer without making my face look oily. Some highlighters go a bit over the top, and the result is a greasy-looking face! No, thanks. wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-5

At times I wish the palette had a bit more glow, but for five bucks, I can’t complain too much. However, since I’m already complaining, I also wish the colors were a bit more separated. When I use the pink shade as a blush, it’s difficult to maneuver my blush brush without coating it with the other colors as well. But, like Tim Gunn suggests, I “make it work.”wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-6-5

I know several people tend to swirl all of the powders together for a beautiful shimmery look, so I suppose to palette set up is perfect for that! wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-6

Swiping this palette on my cheekbones is my favorite part! To me, that’s where the shimmer pops most, along with the bridge of my nose.

If you’re anxious to try out the contouring world, or just add a bit of luminescence to your makeup routine, I can’t recommend the wet n wild megaglo Illuminating Palette enough!  wet-n-wild-megaglo-illuminating-palette-in-catwalk-pink-8

Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation and Concealer


I have been seeing the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer praised all over the place lately. From people who love high end makeup to drugstore fans, these seem to be pleasing everyone!


I decided to jump on the bandwagon, so I purchased both of these products last week. I feel like I have finally used them enough to write a review.

No surprise, I’M A FAN! I purchased the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair 15. There is another light shade, Light 10, but it seemed to have more yellow undertones. Fair had pink undertones, which suits my skin better.concealer 1

It comes in sleek packaging with a doe foot applicator. I have been using it as both an under-eye concealer and to cover blemishes and redness.

The formula is great! It’s so creamy and smooth, without being greasy or looking too thick. It easily blends out with either my finger or Beauty Blender and provides enough lightness without making me look like a raccoon.

In fact, my mom has been on the quest for a good under-eye concealer for years and has tried every high-end product around, and she recently tried this and loves it, too!

I think the concealer adds brightness, while blending seamlessly into my foundation, which is everything I look for in a concealer. Oh, and coverage, duh. It does a great job of that, too. 🙂

For the foundation, I picked up the shade Natural Ivory 112. It is the second lightest shade, and seemed to have similar coloring and undertones to the concealer.

foundation 1

I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION. It seemed slightly drying when I first put it on, but I decided to wear it regardless, and give it a chance. I’m so happy I did! I’ve always wanted to have that porcelain skin look, but I feel like I can’t ever achieve it with my freckles. This foundation got me the closest I’ve ever been!


It comes in a bottle with no pump, so I simply dot it around my face with my fingers and blend it in with a foundation brush.

foundation 2

It definitely diminishes the look of my pores (I think anyway, based on the photo below!), and gives my face a flawless finish without looking like I have tons of makeup caked. It supposedly contains micro-powders that help absorb oils throughout the day, but I still get shiny after a few hours of wear.

What else is there to say? I’m a believer! This foundation and concealer combination is my current favorite, and at around $10 for both, I think it will be for quite awhile!
