Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Gold vs Wet n Wild Megaglo highlighter in Precious Petals (Review and Comparison)

"Glow is the essence of beauty." -Estee Lauder

Now, how well said is that? No makeup look is complete without a little glow to it, and the kind of glow you prefer is completely a personal choice. Somedays you want to look like you glow from within and some days you just wanna blind everyone with a highlight so strong, they could let go of the mirror! Oh how I love highlighters, I can't have enough of those.

Coming to the purpose of this post, we will be comparing two of the most affordable highlighters from the drugstore (and they are also available in India!). I though rather than doing two different posts, one comparison post might be more helpful. Thus, also consider this as an individual review of two different highlighter incase the comparison isn't something you were looking for.

Let us start with packaging. They come in a very similar packaging, with a transparent cap and a black bottom pan which holds the product. The packaging on the Wet n Wild one is slightly flimsy and not as good quality as the Maybelline one, albeit, they're both made out of acrylic material. The Maybelline one seems more sturdy and travel friendly since it closes with a firm click sound, the wet n Wild one doesn't. Having said this, this does not mean that the Wet n Wild one opens up while you're travelling and ends up ruining itself and things around, that does not happen either.

Maybelline one holds 6.7 g of product for Rs 550 and the Wet n Wild one retails for Rs 499 for 5.4 g of product.

The Maybelline one is a pure golden highlighter, whereas, the Wet n Wild one is a golden highlighter but with a peach undertone but translates pretty golden-ish on the skin. When I first dunked my finger in (swatched!) the Maybelline one transferred more product onto my finger then the Wet n Wild one, though both of these felt buttery to touch. Probably, the Wet n Wild one is more tightly pressed than the Maybelline one.

Coming to the look of these, Maybelline is a definite metallic, bold, extremely reflective, blinding highlighter. Compared to this, the Wet n Wild is more buildable and soft on the skin. It can be made to look subtle and also can be built up to a in-your-face kind of highlighter finish. The same is not true for the Maybelline. If you try to scatter it or use a fluffy fan brush to apply it, the glitters will look very, very obvious on the skin. My recommendation is using a densely packed brush with this one. Only people who prefer blinding highlighters should go for the Maybelline one. Whereas, the Wet n Wild one is a must-have if we ignore the packaging for a while, which is not that bad either.

Ingredients

A complete ingredients list is mentioned on both the products which is highly appreciated. I'm very particular about everything that goes inside anything that touches my skin. I checked all the ingredients on EWG Skindeep Database (What's this?). All the ingredients are safe to be used on the skin and non-hazardous. Also, both are paraben free. (Know more)


Swatches



If you're specifically looking for a blinding highlight, go for the Maybelline one. If you're a beginner or want something subtle but buildable, go for the Wet n Wild one. For me both are winners. Some lows and highs here and there, but none outweighs the other considerably.
