For this week’s post, I’ll be reviewing a few Wet n Wild products. I haven’t purchased anything from this brand in the past because I’d never really heard anything about it. Last month, Wet n Wild released its Photo Focus line. I’ve heard nothing but great things about the foundation and pressed powder so I went to my local CVS and purchased them. Since I’ve heard mixed reviews about the concealer, I decided to wait on that one for now.
It was extremely easy to find my foundation shade because the display features the name of the shade in addition to a description. For example, I got the shade Soft Beige and right underneath it was described as a shade for light-medium skin tones with warm undertones. I also finally got my hands on the MegaGlo highlighter in the shade Precious Petals! So, I’m adding it to today’s post since I’m reviewing other Wet n Wild face products.
The Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation retails for $5.99 and there are 20 shades to choose from. According to the website, this foundation is like
Your skin, only better. Our new high-performing, skin-perfecting foundation underwent major road testing under seven different photo lighting conditions to deliver flawless camera-ready makeup every time. Specially made with a matte, light-diffusing complex to give your skin #nofilter perfection.
I primed my face with the Arbonne Makeup primer and applied the Photo Focus foundation to half of my face using a beauty blender so you can see the coverage it provides.
The Wet n Wild Photo Focus Pressed Powder retails for $4.99 and comes in 8 shades. According to the website,
Your smartphone just met its makeup match. Pack this genius pressed powder in your bag for endlessly amazing photos every time. Light-diffusing pigments give your skin a veil of silky natural looking perfection in photos and IRL. Wear it alone, on bare skin or over Photo Focus foundation for a flawless finish.
- Sets makeup with an unbelievably soft, satin finish
- Reduces shine throughout the day
- Each shade covers a range of skin tones
Here I’m wearing the shade Warm Light and I applied it with my Sigma F30 powder brush using patting motions before then blending away any excess powder.
The Wet n Wild MegaGlo Pressed Highlighter retails for $4.99 and comes in two shades. I purchased the shade precious petals. According to the website, it’s a
velvety-smooth highlighting powder [that] enhances skin with a naturally luminous glow [and is] infused with shimmering pearl pigments.
Here’s my finished look for today:
I have oily-combo skin so I was interested to see how this foundation would hold up throughout the day. I applied it around 9a in the morning and will not be using oil blotting sheets or powdering. The day I tested out these products, it was about 85° F and I took check-in pictures around 12p and 6p.
At noon, I had been wearing the products for about 3 hours and in that time, I had taken a walk to Starbucks and back to my apartment. Here’s what my skin looked like:
Unfortunately, I was only able to take this check-in picture with my iPhone. Since I was at work, I couldn’t bring my DSLR with me. With that being said, my skin was still mattified and I didn’t see or feel like my oils were coming through the foundation or powder. So far, so good!
I work in an office so I didn’t really experience much of the hot afternoon but I did have to run a couple errands across campus in addition to walking to and from my car. Once I got home from work, I had been wearing the products for about 9 hours and here’s how my skin looked:
At the end of my workday, I could slightly feel the oil coming through on my chin but other than that, everything else still felt weightless. My t-zone definitely has a bit of shine but nothing too extreme. This $5.99 foundation worked better than some of my higher end foundations and it definitely held up to its claims! This photo was taken with a flash and the only flashback comes from the oils peaking through the makeup and of course the highlight.
Overall, I absolutely love this foundation! It’s weightless while still having a medium coverage that is also buildable. The only thing I had to reapply in the 9 hours of wear time was my lip color. It kept my oils at bay and my skin looked so smooth all day. And the highlighter is amazing! Now I know why everyone was going crazy over it when it was first released last year. These products are stunning and affordable and I definitely think you should try them out!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post!
Until next time,
