Sneak Peek: Wet n Wild Limited Edition Summer 2016 Collection (Plus: Swatches!)

Sneak Peek: Wet n Wild  Limited Edition Summer 2016 Collection
(iPhone case NOT included in this collection)

I have good news and I have bad news for you today. The good news? Those of you who have been wanting more highlighters from WnW are going to be very happy about the new LE Summer collection. The bad news? This is an LE collection. So the highlighters and metallic liquid lipsticks I showed you in previous posts are going to be limited edition (I didn't know at the time of those posts that those products were part of the Summer LE collection, but I can now confirm that's true).

But! More (potential) good news: WnW might make this collection available on their website like they did with the Spring LE stuff HERE, so if you can't find these products at your local drugstores this May, you might have another option!

So let's get to the sneak peeks:

Looking at these pics above, you can see that in addition to the powder highlighters, there are also highlighter sticks and nail polishes, and of course the metallic liquid lipsticks in this collection. Wet n Wild has not shared any sneak peeks on their Instagram of eyeshadow palettes, but hopefully there are some of those in this collection has well.

Another shot of the highlighter sticks. So pretty, right?

And thanks so much to reader Liz (@lifeofalittlecrazy on Instagram) for kindly sharing these screenshots from Wet n Wild's Snapchat (wetnwildbeauty). We have swatches of the Megaglo highlighter compacts! These look absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to see them in person. 

Sneak Peek: Wet n Wild Metallic Liquid Lipsticks, coming this May

Lastly, I figured I would include these two photos from my previous blog posts, just in case you missed them. These are the metallic liquid lipsticks that will also be part of this collection.

The Wet n Wild Limited Edition Summer 2016 collection is scheduled to hit drugstores this May, however I wouldn't be surprised if some of you see the display a bit earlier (that tends to be the case with drugstore collections). I am so looking forward to your sightings when you spot this one (and thank you in advance if you share sightings with us!).

Thanks again, @lifeofalittlecrazy, for the great pics of the highlighter swatches. I really appreciate that!


  1. First collection I've been excited about in a while! Thanks for the preview, G!

  2. Oooh those highlighters look so pretty! I bought one of the limited edition ones from the spring collection and was so disappointed :( I wasn't expecting it to be Becca quality, but I did expect much more pigmentation.

  3. All of the liquid lipsticks look gorgeous but I'm excited for the rose and peachy colors! And of course, as usual I want all the highlighters! Maybe they'll even be sold online as well, like the spring collection was? That would be so helpful.

    1. Yup, I talked about that at the top of this post (second paragraph). Fingers crossed!! :)

  4. The limited edition 6 pan colors from summer or spring last year (vinyl collection, California roll etc) are on overstock as a bundle. Pretty good deal along with other limited edition collections from other brands. :)

  5. Yes, fingers crossed bc my local Walgreens is the only drugstore that gets WNW LE items. And then they only get a few. Im psyched about all the highlighers!!!!

  6. Aww poo, I thought the highlighter sticks were lip balm! They're in the same style tube as the Wet n Wild lip balms I had as a kid.

  7. Oh my god! These are so gorgeous!

  8. Highlighters galore....finally got my hands on the wet n wild shimmer palette in boozy brunch (fergie's hollywood boulevard repackaged) ahhh now I must get these :) when I see them....the swatches look promising. Wet n wild is on a roll with beautiful quality products I'm seriously impressed with the quality of their products in relation to the price.

  9. I love the 1.00 color stick( in Persimmon) from ELF. Its a great highlighter. I hope the WnW stick highlighters are the same.

  10. I have been following for a long time now and never commented. But, I had to this time! I picked up the highlighters and lippies today from Walgreen's bogo 50% off but had to get the prices adjusted because it was not in the system. I had been passing on wet n wild the past few years until I recently bought Boozy Brunch aka Hollywood Blvd and this georgous ombre blush In A Purple Haze at Target. These highlighters are everything!! Precious Petals is a dead on dupe for MAC Whisper of Guilt more than Hollywood BLVD in my opinion. I will be going back to get a back up. The packaging on the cream highlighters is a little flimsy so you have to be careful putting the cap back on. My store display only had 2 of each. The lippies are ok, the darker shades suited best for my dark skin tone. They are very glittery and hard to get off. Still a pretty collection for the prices. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful posts! I also snagged other goodies thanks to your posts. :)

  11. I just found the collection at Rite Aid today...4-16-16...beautiful!

  12. Are Wet N Wild limited edition collections usually found at CVS?

  13. Has anyone seen this recently? Or know if when it may be online?

  14. Has anybody spotted this in South Texas,we are usually the last to get things!I hate it!I'm from Ingleside,Tx.Looking forward to the highlighting powders!Saw them on ebay,but of course price is quadrupled! Grrrrr!
    I always just purchase what I want,sometimes hooking up someone that can't get their wanted products,but never do I over buy items to hustle on eBay.
