This shade is a bit dark for me but I like it very much. Blends well. Lots of color. I would prefer a different packaging though.

I actually hated this product. I watched reviews that said that once you get past the waxy layer, it is a good product. Even from the beginning, I got OK color pay off but I find that I never use this product. I dont like the colors seperately or mixed together. I suppose that its a good all in one product but the packaging is cheap, the product easily dents, and it just doesn't work the way its supposed to. For $3.99, I don't really mind spending that much. However, its going to end up in the trash soon. Not worth repurchasing.

I really like this. It is a good product. This is a cheaper alternative to the Physician's Formula shimmer strips. You can use it as blush, bronzer, highlighter, eyeshadow, and even lipstick if you mix it gloss.

This product is a HG product for me. It works as a blush, bronzer and highlighter all in one. It can also be used as an eyeshadow. I also have this product in Catwalk Pink (see my review, please. :D) but I much prefer this color for my skintone. It also has a lot less sparkle than Catwalk Pink. This little gem has a peachy pinky bronze shimmer strip, a plummy mauve strip, a darker plummy wine strip, and a dark peachy pinky bronze strip. With Catwalk Pink, I used the center colors on my cheeks and just lightly dusted the golden bronze colors across my forhead, cheekbones and jawline (in the "3" motion), but with Strike A Pose Rose, I just swirl my brush around in it and use it on my cheeks, and then go back over the bronze shades for my "3" sweep. The packaging is durable but not the greatest. I will repurchase this as long as it's made. :D I hope to one day get my hands on the peach one!

I bought this powder last year or the year before and I'm still using it. The colour is great for winter! I love it and it stays on all day and just gives that perfect pink cheek, very natural even on my skintone!
The only flaw is that it brought while in my make-up bag. It left a huge mess and now I have to keep it in one place to be able to use it because it's broken.
I suppose that's not a flaw of this specific product, it's a flaw of all pressed powders.
1-2 years after purchase, I'm still using it!

This is marked as a blush/highlighter, however since I am very fair (NW10-15), I use this as a bronzer for when I am doing warmer looks. Really warms up my complexion, especially in the winter. Definitely a great value from Wet N Wild. I like to pair this with red and orange lipsticks too. Almost a drugstore dupe for Tarte's Park Ave. Princess. I really like this for when I am NW20 : ) Has a touch more red in it than I like, which is why it's better for when I have a tan.

Nice! Good color with subtle shimmer. Definitely worth the price.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This is a nice highlighter, it is not to shimmery on my skin. The price is great, I own a similar one from cargo and this product is just as good and it isn't as glittery or as pricey. For me it is a keeper and I will repurchase this again.

This one is a little dark for me (I am very fair; I prefer Catwalk Pink.) It is very richly pigmented, which is perhaps the reason that it doesn't work all that well on me. The stripes do come together in a really pretty, harmonious way, but if you are fair this product probably isn't the best for you.

This is the best bronzer anyone could buy for 3.00.

Pros - great pigmentation / color payoff. the four color stripes swirled together help great a beautiful glowing bronze look. moderate shimmer. it definitely creates more of a luminous sheen. the price.

Cons - nada.

Overall - as long as you use this bronzer sparingly on your face you won't look muddy. I actually prefer to swipe Mac Comfort over my face and then blend Strike a Pose Rose into my cheeks as a blush. For reference I'm NW 20. In a pinch these colors can also be used as a light eye shadow.

Pleasantly surprised by this blush! I'm often a skeptic for these self blending type blushes, but this was a cinch and I actually got it right on the first try. God only knows why I even bother with expensive blushes, when I could of been reaching for the milk and the great WNW products at the same time. Becoming a WNW fan these days - good for the collection and for the wallet.

I'm 17 and have veryveryvery pale skin with a pink complexion, so most matte blushes I try out make me look like I have a rash. I was looking for blushes that have shimmer, and this one was cheap so I got it. This is (besides my CG true minerals blush in shimmering sands) THE best blush I have ever bought.
It is very shimmery, but not glittery; there are no 'flecks' of glitter, just a healthy glow.
Its very smooth and my ecotools brush picks it up easily
Perfect for winter if you're going for that 'snow bunny' look I just out this on and some grey eyeliner and bam. I was ready to go. :)

I love these mega glo illuminator wheels or whatever u wana call it. In summer esp it gives my pale skin and cheeks this slighty warmer pinky glow. I use my elf studio complexion brush and swipe down thru all the colors and apply to my cheeks and its beautiful. I got so many compliments. I duno if i will wear it as much as a blush now that it is gona b winter soon, but i love them as eyeshadows too. Its a nice pinky brown palette. The staying power is incredible! I love these. It was around 4.99 at riteaid but i always wait 4 sales like bogo. These are beautiful. I have very very pale skin and it may look even better on darker skin. Great cheap, pigmented blush/highlighter/bronzer/eyeshadow. Its so multipurpose that its worth so much more!

i love love love this. first i set out to purchase this product because of the price and the good reviews here and i didnt expect it this good! today i finished a look only this product(of course foundaiton and powder mascara eyeliner are the must tools).but i simply used mega glo as a blush when i swiped the golden bronze and rosy plum together, and i used the light brown as contouring powder and the golden pick as a highlighter to add some more dimension. then i used it as a eyeshadow.OMG, i thought it would be sheer on my eyelid. but it is decently pigment as an eyeshadow.first i aplied some sephora eyeshadow base(which i found it work quite well too)then i applied the golden pink(which i used as a highlighter five seconds ago)as an overall lid color then i used the brown all over my crease , used a angle brush to apply the rosy plum to my outer v. then while blending them all together i added some golden bronze as a transition. golden pink again on my brow bone! such a beautiful spring color on the lid!amazing product!will purchase the other colors too!get it girls,you wont be disappointed
Edit: not using this anymore. i looked severely sun burnt. yet i still like the shimmery shades in it which are more pigmented and makes it better as an eyeshadow rather than a face product. i still occasionally use it as a lid color.

Love :) I've used this as a blush and a bronzer for all over color, and always get great results. It never looks like too much on my NC15 skin, and has great color payoff. Packaging sucks, of course, as I dropped one and it immediately shattered, but you get what you pay for with a 4 dollar product. This is an awesome DS find.

I really liked this. It is a great multi-tasker because it can be used as eyeshadows, the lighter two can be highlighters, the darker two can be a darker bronzer, or all the the colors can be used to add a gentle glow. The quality is pretty good but i'm not crazy about the cheap packaging. What more could i expect for a couple bucks though :p Great buy, give it a try!

I desperately need this product! A client of my had it and I fell in love with it! Does anyone know who I can purchase it online? I live in Bali, but I'm from Australia. I can't find it on Ebay?! I NEED IT! Please help! firstname.lastname@example.org

I heard great reviews of this illuminating powder online. It gives a gorgeous warm pink flush to the cheeks. I like it better for the winter. It doesn't really give me a good summer glow. It makes me look too flushed. The packaging isn't all that great and it cracks for no reason. Mine cracked twice and I didn't even do anything to it. I'd say this is a great drugstore product. The quality you get for your money is great. I would buy again.

I love this. I love it so! I wanted a different kind of bronzer than the bareMinerals "Warmth" I had been using, which looked okay but not glowy on me at all. I know this is more of a blush, but for some reason it has the effect of being a highlighter, blush, and bronzer/contour all in one product. The lightest color is a very light colorless shimmer, whereas the darkest color is a deep pinked brown color. I apply without swirling my brush and the lightest color stays closer to my eyes, the pinks sit on the apple of my cheek, and the darkest contours. It doesn't look stripey at all (though I do blend a little bit). And best yet, the overall effect is exactly as the name says: a glow! It's so pretty - I wish I had this on my wedding day. The only ding is the packaging, with its screw on lid, which is at worst *mildly* annoying. I might have to check out the other color options!
*EDIT*: I should add that the two darkest colors wear down much, much faster than the lighter colors. The two lighter bars hardly look like they've been used at all!

For less than $5, this is definitely a bang for your buck. I find myself reaching for it even more than my NARS blushes. There's not a lot of glitter and the colours look good on my NC25 skin. Looks best when you just use all colours instead of one separately. It goes on rather light on my face, hence the four star rating, but that's the look I like. The packaging is okay - cheap plastic screw lid... What do you really expect for $5? Will probably buy again.
