The $4 Cream Highlighter You Need Now
It might just be the best $4 you've ever spent.
There's a drugstore cream highlighter that's making waves with beauty insiders, and for good reason. With a $4 price tag, Wet n Wild's MegaGlow Highlight Makeup Stick promises a natural flush and glowing skin with just a few swipes. Those are some pretty lofty claims, but reviewers (and one viral Instagram post) promise it truly delivers.
So what's the deal with this magic makeup stick? Well, the draw is that it's basically four products in one: a highlighter, blush, concealer, and contour stick. It effortless glides on like a cream and quickly dries to a powder finish. The MegaGlo doesn't require a full face of makeup to act as a base either. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, try using it to pare down your entire makeup routine for a day. Lipstick and this quadruple-threat highlighter are all you need for a natural glow, achieved in less than a minute, and for that reason alone we think it warrants a place in every makeup bag.
To apply, swipe the MegaGlow Makeup Stick just above the cheekbones for an immediate lift. We recommend limiting application to the cheekbones for a more natural look, though you can also apply to the areas shown in the graphic above if you're looking for more impact. Use a makeup sponge or your fingertips to gently blend the color.
