Wet N Wild Mega Cushion Highlight | Review & Swatches

Wet N Wild Mega Cushion Highlight Review Who's That Pearl

Just this past January, Wet n Wild released their new Mega Cushion collection, which offers us not one or two, but six different complexion-enhancing products (along with a few lip products as well).  Today I’m reviewing the one I’ve been most looking forward to – their Mega Cushion Highlight.

Wet N Wild Mega Cushion Highlight

This Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Highlight features a no-mess cushion sponge application, housed in a cute and ultra-portable compact.  It’s currently available in one shade called ‘Who’s That Pearl’, which is a soft white-pink/peach with a subtle amount of micro-shimmer.  I imagine it would work for really any skin tone and depth as it’s neutral-toned and also buildable (looks great sheer, and even layered for more intensity).  Better yet, the Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Highlight formula is cruelty-free, fragrance-free, gluten free, and vegan.

Like you’d expect from a cushion makeup product, the Mega Cushion Highlight’s formula feels amazingly lightweight on the skin – almost barely-there.  It’s actually quite sheer, with no crazy amounts of glitter or shimmer, making it practically foolproof (and office-friendly).  One light layer is enough to create a soft, subtly reflective sheen.  You can also build it up to go from sheer, to semi-sheer, all the way up to full coverage (if, say, you are looking to use this on the eyelids, etc).  The texture is silky-smooth and easy to blend out using your fingers, and provides a nice even finish with no stickiness whatsoever.

To apply the Wet n Wild Mega Cushion Highlight on-to-go, I’ll lightly press the sponge against the product-soaked cushion and do 2-3 swipes over the cheeks, then I’ll blend it out using my fingers.

The cushion isn’t my favorite for applying – the shape often results in a not-so-precise application – however, it works just fine for on-the-go.   At home though, I tend to reach for my beauty.blusher by beautyblender for a bit more control and precision.

Another small downside is that, because the container is pretty small and the cushion isn’t super saturated with product, I don’t expect it to last that long.  Thankfully though, at a low $5.99, isn’t not a huge budget buster.

Cushion Contour & Correctors

To complete Wet N Wild’s new Cushion makeup collection, they’ve also thrown in the Mega Cushion Contour, plus four color correctors.  I haven’t tried these (yet), but considering how much I’m loving the Cushion Highlighter, I predict that I may been trying them out soon.  Until then, here’s a quick look at each one.

Mega Cushion Contour

The Wet N Wild Mega Cushion Contour is currently available in one shade – Cafe au Slay.  It features a similar lightweight, ultra-blendable formula to the Highlighter, only the Contour contains silica to help give it a smooth, velvety texture for easier spreading and blending. The formula is cruelty-free, fragrance-free, gluten free, and vegan.

The Mega Cushion Contour ($5.99) are available at Walgreens and wetnwildbeauty.com.

Mega Cushion Color Correctors

The Mega Cushion Color Correctors are available in four different shades: Green (for redness), Yellow (for neutralizing dark circles, veins, etc), Peach (for brightening dark circles), and Lavender (for neutralizing unwanted yellow undertones/sallowness).  Similar to the other Cushions, the four are cruelty-free, fragrance-free, gluten free, and vegan.

The Mega Cushion Color Correctors ($5.99) are available at walmart.com and wetnwildbeauty.com.
