Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Wet 'n Wild Lost in the Wild Flowers Summer 2016 Collection

Hi!
**purchased

I've got the fun, super-anticipated Wet 'n Wild Lost in the Wild Flowers limited edition collection for Summer 2016 to share today.  (Nail polishes will be in an upcoming post.)  I first spotted the display at Rite Aid, missing an item, so I bought all I wanted then continued my search for a few days.  I found the final wanted item at Walgreens, but I believe I also spotted this at KMart - nothing so far at the one CVS I visited.  I would say, if you want anything, get it as soon as you see the display.  I was in the same Rite Aid I first saw the display just 3 days later and the entire collection was gone.  
The display was nearly untouched, but for missing both bottles of the 4th nail polish color.  I took a close-up for the brand's descriptions of the Metallic Liquid Lipstick (did not purchase any), the MegaGlo All-in-One Multi-Stick, and the MegaGlo Highlighting Powder.
I was lucky enough to find the collection when Rite Aid had Wet 'n Wild on sale for 40% off and this particular location actually honored that sale on the limited edition collection (the other Rite Aids around me do not honor sale prices on l.e. items).  I believe both the Multi-Sticks and Highlighting Powders retail for $3.99, polishes are $1.99.  I don't have the price of the Metallic Liquid Lipsticks since I didn't buy any and the display didn't have price stickers.
First up, on unprepped skin, is Crown of My Canopy.  This is just one swatch on my hand.
The upper left picture is in natural, filtered daylight; the bottom swatch is in my lightbox and is closer to what I saw in regular room lighting.  This might be too dark for me to use as a highlighter, so I will probably use it more as a blush.  I'd describe the color as a slightly golden peach.

Next up is Precious Petals, again a single swipe on my hand.
As above, the upper left picture is in natural, filtered daylight while the bottom is in the lightbox and closer to what is seen in regular room lighting.  I think this is more of a highlighter shade for me, but could also be used as a blush topper.  This one comes across as a golden pearl to my eye.

The next picture is both of the Highlighting Powders for a comparison.  Precious Petals is on top, Crown of My Canopy is on bottom.

Last up for today's swatches are the MegaGlow Multi-Sticks.  I debated on getting these or skipping since I don't regularly reach for cream product, but I am trying to broaden types of products used.
Marigold Round, Light Up My High-Biscus, Carnational Anthem
The swatches for these involved building up for all 3 shades, particularly Marigold Round (bottom).  Light Up My High-Biscus is the center pink shade, which looks like it would make a pretty blush.  Carnational Anthem is the top swatch and looks very orange on my hand.  I didn't notice any greasiness with these, but have yet to try to apply them on my face over foundation/BB/CC cream.  I did just plop a little bit on one cheek and it seemed to blend out all right,  not leaving me any more tacky than I already was (end of day over concealer that was never powdered).  It did sheer out quite a bit but I didn't try to build it any.

I've only had the Lost in the Wild Flowers collection for a few days, and on none of those days have I worn makeup so I can't really comment as to how they look applied normally and over my usual base products.  It'll be fun to play with these products for the next time I do put on makeup and I'm looking forward to playing with my new goodies.

Have you come across the Wet 'n Wild Lost in the Wild Flowers collection yet?  Do you plan on picking up any of the items?
