Wet n Wild is launching its products in batches in India. When it first launched, I hardly found any good match in the foundation and the powder range, so I had to wait this long in getting my hands on my right match. And in the second batch came up some really interesting products, including the MegaCushion foundation and the liquid highlighters, along with adding some more shades of the foundation and pressed powders. Wet n Wild is a Los Angeles based company brings us a stunning range of cosmetics with high-performance formulations, all available at unbeatable prices. Wet n Wild is a Peta-certified, cruelty-free brand. Though not 100% of the products are vegan, the brand is still striving towards making them all vegan friendly! In this post, I’ll be talking about the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation and the Pressed Powder.
What really makes the Wet n Wild PhotoFocus range stand out from the rest of the collection is that it has been tested under various light conditions which makes sure this range delivers a camera-ready makeup look.
Goodbye Photo Flashback : Tested Under 7 light conditions and with top smartphone models –
- Clear Blue Sunlit Sky.
- Outdoors PM.
- Indoors PM.
- Electronic Flash.
- Fluorescent Light.
- Bathroom Light.
- Nightclub Light.
WET N WILD PHOTOFOCUS FOUNDATION
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.
- High-performing, breakthrough formula
- Featuring light-adjusting complex to help prevent white cast in photos
- Tested under 7 light conditions with and without the use of flash
PRICE : INR 599/- for a 30ml product. That is a decent pricing for the average amount of product we get.
SHADES : There are a total of 20 shades available in the foundation, out of which only 10 shades are available in India. I hope we get access to the rest of the shades as well, because India is full of pretty girls with different skin tones and with different under tones, so it is hard to find a perfect match for everyone.
After a lot of online research about the shades and swatches, I bought the shade DESERT BEIGE, which is close to my skin tone.
Packaging, the Wet n Wild PhotoFocus Foundation comes in a clear square shaped glass bottle. It doesn’t come with a pump as any regular foundation, rather it has a spatula kind of applicator which is quite convenient in application. Absolute thumbs-up for the packaging from my side, for the amount I’m paying when compared to other high-end foundations that come in plastic bottles and have no applicators at all. The packaging is pretty much okay for self use, but if you’re a makeup artist and wanna use this on your clients, then the spatula applicator might not be a good option in terms of hygiene issues, other than that everything is pretty good with the packaging.
The foundation has a runny liquid consistency. The spatula applicator picks the right amount of product and it blends effortlessly on the skin. For this kind of thin runny formula, I mostly prefer to use a brush for blending the foundation. It does have a paint-like scent to it which doesn’t linger for much time, once the foundation settles down the scent disappears. This foundation gives a medium coverage with a flawless matte finish, which can be build-able to a full coverage. It does not cover up all the blemishes and spots in one go, but if you’re blessed with good skin you’ll definitely find this foundation to be a full coverage one. It’s not a flat matte foundation, it does leave the skin with some luminosity to make it look like ‘my skin’. It has a light-weight formula and feels very comfortable on the skin. It does not feel tacky nor gives a cakey look to the skin. It does cling on to the dry patches, if you’ve any. So a really good prep has to be done before going on with this foundation. It did pass the flash-test, this foundation doesn’t give any flashbacks. Also it doesn’t show up any white cast on the skin. On my combination skin, this foundation lasted for about 6-7 hours after which I did notice some creasing around my mouth, laugh lines and a little bit under my eyes. I have an oily T-zone with dry cheeks, so I definitely need a powder to set my problematic oily areas and also my under eyes.

- Each shade covers a range of skin tones.
PRICE : INR 499/- for a 7.5g product.
SHADES : There are 8 shades in total and we have 4 shades available in India. Again, not a decent spectrum range covering all the skin tones.
I got the shade – TAN BEIGE. I haven’t found any swatch comparison pics anywhere nor on the website, so I blindly went with what colors the website showed up, blindly.
Packaging, the Wet n Wild PhotoFocus Pressed Powder comes in a regular black compact case, with a clear lid. It does not include any applicator inside nor it has any mirror, which is a sad thing.
The powder has a super finely milled silky texture to it. It blends into the skin like dream and gives a very natural look to the skin. It gives a medium coverage. It doesn’t show any ashy or white cast on the skin. Since I’ve put both the foundation and the powder to test, together, I feel they both complement each other very well. They give such a flawless result. I mostly use the powder to set my under eyes and rest of my face. I use my beauty blender sponge to apply the powder. I grab a generous amount of the powder and set my under eyes and leave it for some time while I finish doing rest of my face, and I use a powder brush to wipe away any extra powder. I have a habit of using the powders alone, when I don’t want to wear any makeup, and this powder does a good job in brightening my face and give a natural look to my skin.
Overall, being budget-friendly, both the foundation and the pressed powder are great products for daily makeup looks. They are totally worth the price and worth all the hype! I really wish we get access to the rest of the shades as well, so I get to pick some more shades in both the foundation and the pressed powder. I wanna come out of this ‘Beige’ family and try out some more interesting shades(of course which match me).
