Hit or Miss – Drugstore Eyeshadow Palettes

 

Hey what’s going guys!¬†Today I’ll be sharing my hit or miss¬†drugstore eyeshadow palettes as requested. I know how overwhelming it can be trying to find a good eyeshadow palette¬†when you’re not able to test the products properly.¬†Drugstore makeup can be a hit & miss thing but their palettes are definitely stepping up these days. So, I thought it might be helpful to talk with you guys some of the¬†eyeshadow palettes that I’ve tried and I’d recommend if you’re on the¬†fence to pick something from the drugstores! FYI – this is not a sponsored post!

Okay, let’s do this.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m going to talk on¬†these three eyeshadow palettes which I picked up from my local drugstore not too long ago.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My girl¬†friend introduced me to this eyeshadow palette. I like that it comes in a huge pan¬†which means you get a lot more products from this palette. The best thing is it’s also travel friendly.

Covergirl TruNaked Palette is available in Nudes, Roses and Goldens and retails for CAD$12.97.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Goldens shade contains warmer shades of beige, tans, olives and browns. If you’re someone looking for¬†these color eyeshadows,¬†this one¬†is for you. It reminds me a lot of the Urban Decay Naked palette actually. I love the color selection in this palette. They’re so pretty and all the shadows are so versatile. You can create a neutral to dramatic look with these.

There are¬†three matte shades Creme, Cookie and Sierra while the rest are shimmers. I didn’t notice any difference in formula between¬†the¬†different finishes. They all feel the same to me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They’re very easy to blend out and long lasting. It’s really¬†pigmented while I also notice that it does kicks up some powders, I wouldn’t be too¬†alarm by it. In fact,¬†I found that I don’t need to dig into the pan¬†that hard to pick up products.

I was quite¬†impressed with the formula and quality. They apply so beautifully on eyes and on swatches. I’m loving this palette and it’s a hit for me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Rimmel London launched these in three shade groupings which are golds and nudes, roses, and smoky shades. I picked this palette because I knew right away that this would be the most wearable choice out of the three palettes.

I have a fairly good track record with Rimmel eyeshadow as I happened be a fan of their Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow Palette.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Eyeshadow Contouring Palette comes housed in a plastic compact that contains 12 shades. The palette also contains two dual-sided sponge applicators.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Some textures are creamy and smoother than the other. Yes, I’m referring to the matte and shimmery shadows. The matte formula is silky¬†smooth while the shimmery ones seems to be more textured with¬†glittery feels to them. It’s not bad but it would be even better if they’ve have similar formula¬†to the matte shadows.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was hoping for a much better or improved formula but this doesn’t even come close. Sadly it didn’t bring me to the moon and back ūüė¶¬† I don‚Äôt think the formula is up to par with the Glam Eyes Eyeshadow formulas they‚Äôve done in the past. The shadows blends to sheer and grouping other colors together. It gave me a serious black eye look which certainly isn’t cute at all. That was a deal breaker.

I’m quite disappointed with this palette and wouldn’t recommend it. You can definitely find other brands for¬†the same price point but you’re getting a better quality product.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m not going to do a full review here, at the risk of being repetitive but for those of you that didn’t see my original review, I’ll just keep it short and sweet by saying that this formula is quite impressive.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Wet n Wild Au Naturel eyeshadows are¬†richly pigmented, soft, and glides on so smoothly. To be honest, I really don’t have anything negative to say about this palette. For the price, quality and that it’s cruelty free, I say run to your nearest drugstore and pick one now.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Needless to say, this is a winner in my book.

I hope this review was helpful, and let me know if you’ve found any must-try shades from this line!

Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipsticks – Review & Swatches

DSC03974

Wet n Wild recently revamped their Silk Finish lipsticks, gone are the silver tubes and they are now replaced with black plastic tubes like these ones.

DSC03975

Okay, so the shades I have of the revamped line are:

Blind Date – gorgeous purple berry. This is one of the new colors. Reminds me sorta of the Sugar Plum Fairy shade in the megalast line.¬†I feel¬†that the formula is very pigmented, went on smoothly and evenly. Didn’t dry out my lips either. I’m in love with my Blind Date!

Hot Paris Pink – amazing red coral. When both red and coral mixed together you wouldn’t believe how stunning the shade was.¬†Hot Paris Pink is prettiest of all,¬†I really¬†love this one too! ūüėČ

DSC03977

I really love the formula in these lipsticks. Its formula contains all the same things as the other guys: rich color, vitamins A & E, aloe vera, and really feels like putting silk on your lips. I love how comfortable it feels on¬†lips. It wear lasted for 2-3¬†hours which I’m quite impressed.

The downside of this Silky Lipstick is the tube packaging. I find that the packaging is frustrating to deal with, you can’t just pop the cap on and off, you have to line it up in order to close shut. The upside is the¬†clear plastic cover made easier to see the lip colors.

This Silky Lipstick is available in 24 amazing¬†shades on¬†Wet n Wild website for US$0.99, that’s a crazy bargain if you ask me! CAD$1.99¬†if you go to¬†Walmart Canada.

Anyway, yeah, these $0.99 lipsticks are great.What can you even buy for $0.99 cents anymore these days? That a great steal & I will purchase more. I highly recommend them my friends, they’re super affordable.

Which lip color would you prefer? Would it be the Megalast or Silky Finish lipstick? Don’t forget to comment below.

Wet n Wild Coloricon Bronzer In Bikini Contest

wet n wild

I have heard quite a lot about¬†Wet n Wild Coloricon Bronzer and I’ve decided to join the bandwagon.¬†I”m curious to see how they fared compared to their eyeshadow 8-pan palettes in terms of formula and pigmentations.

DSC02461

If you are a frequent readers to my blog, you all know how much I love Wet n Wild makeup products. From eyeshadows to lipsticks and I’m trying to discover more from this brand. Not only is the quality impressive, it’s also a cruelty free makeup brand which I am and many of you are excited with.

wet n wild bronzer spf 15

I picked this bronzer up several weeks ago but it just got piled up in my to be reviewed product stacks. And today, I just wanted to share this amazing and gorgeous looking bronzer with all of you. So, let’s go right into it:-

The shade I got is in 740 Bikini Contest by Wet n Wild which is the darkest tone of the 3 color options. Shades available are the Reserve Your Cabana (more a highlighter than a bronzer), Ticket To Brazil (golden brown) and Bikini Contest (which has much more reddish bronze undertone than Ticket to Brazil). You can find these at the drugstores, Walgreen, Walmart, Target and online.


DSC03434

The plastic packaging looks a little cheap but the formula and texture just blew me away.

DSC03442

This is a really great and affordable bronzer. It contains SPF 15 which is nice. I find that this bronzer last all day and I love it.

wet n wild bronzer

This bronzer¬†is huge and it’s the size of my palm and very generously portioned with net wt 0.46 oz. You really get a lot for your money. The product is really easy to get picked up on a brush and it’s got enough pigment that it is easy to apply. So, the color payoff is incredible and a little goes a long way.

DSC02462

I love the texture and feel on my fingers. It feels so smooth and velvety soft. It blends so well and it gives a nice bronzy finish. The only downside I notice is that it has a slight shimmer of the product because matte bronzers are really the best for contouring.

DSC02464

It does blend easily and once blended, you really can’t see any shimmer. I also love that you get such large compact for the price. It comes with the generous size and it’s going to last all summer plus some. This is another winner for¬†Wet n Wild.

Overall, it’s a nice color that’s just a tad too shimmery for me, if you don’t mind shimmer I’ll say give it a chance!

Do you own any of¬†this new Wet n Wild Bronzer? If so, which shades do you own and how do you like them.¬†I love to hear your comment in the section below ūüôā

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

Wet n Wild Coverall Foundation


wnw foundation

I bought this Wet n Wild Coverall Cream Foundation because I’m literally obsessed with the Wet n Wild makeup line and therefore¬†here I am with its cream foundation I picked up recently ūüėõ

The shade I picked is in 819 Medium. I heard a lot¬†about this foundation and I’m curious to try it out myself. For those of you who¬†are new here, I’ve dry skin and I’m always on the search for a really good¬†foundation that doesn’t make my skin looking cakey.

wnw color swatch

This Wet n Wild foundation comes in a tube packaging which I like but not in love with. I think it’s a great size for travelling and all you need is just squirt the formula on your hand before blending them on your skin. You can use a beauty blender or foundation brush to¬†buff and blend them in.

This cream foundation has¬†medium to full coverage. I like the consistency of the formula on swatch but it feels a little heavy when I applied it¬†on skin. It does hide the imperfection and redness around my nose and it doesn’t oxidise like some other foundation do. When I put¬†this foundation¬†on my skin with a light layer, I notice that with this formula, it sink into my¬†fine lines and it makes¬†my pores seems larger and¬†more visible. I heard mixed reviews on this foundation but for me personally I just¬†cannot figure out why so many boast about this foundation being full coverage. I could barely cake it on to medium coverage status. ūüė¶

wnw color swatch foundation

This cream foundation¬†¬†goes on very smoothly and dries with a satin matte finish. I personally prefer a bit of a dewier finish especially on a full coverage foundation but that’s just me.

It’s not a terrible foundation, it’s just not for me. It might work better for you, I don’t know but this is a miss for me. I would like it a lot better if it didn’t make my small pores look larger and that it has a longer staying power.

Overall, I think that Wet n Wild has good and inexpensive products such as their¬†tinted moisturizer with sunscreen and bronzer¬†but¬†mostly very good eyeshadow and lipstick options. Anyways,¬†if you’re looking for a cheap on the go foundation and if you have normal skin tone, then this cream foundation might be something you will like to try considering the low price and it’s cruelty free.

Have you tried any of the Wet n Wild foundation? Do you have good experience with your purchase? Let me know your comment on the section below.

Thanks so much for reading.

I’m Getting Sunburned by Wet n Wild

 


nw eyeshaow trio

You guys know that I’m obsessed with Wet n Wild makeup and it didn’t stop there as you can see I’ve more eyeshadow to share with you all today. LOL Yes, you’ve seen the Walking on Eggshells in my previous post. Click here if you haven’t already. Now, let’s get started.

shadow pan trio

I picked up this Trio Coloricon by Wet n Wild in I’m Getting Sunburned for $2.77 and I think the regular price is selling for $3.97. So, I got to save like $2.00 on both palettes and I’m enjoying my beauty frugal life at this moment.

wnw i'm getting sunburned swatch

This trio shadow palette has an insanely amount of shimmer  and look how pigmented they are, so if you love a shimmery, frosty finish then this is a gorgeous palette that you would love for your vanity. You just have to apply bare minimum shadows since the color payoff is without saying incredible.

I slapped on the color swatches on the top and¬†bottom pictures to show the intensity of these shades. The top row is the trio palette from Walking on Eggshells and the bottom row is I’m Getting Sunburned.

shimmer shadows i'm getting sunburned

This is a shimmery shadow and the only downside of this trio palette is fallout. I notice there is some fallout from the golden metallic shadow where else the other shadows on pan are richly pigmented, especially the pink highlighter which is silky buttery soft.¬†With that aside, I feel that the dark grey shadow (crease) has a lot of gold glitters and in my opinion it’s the most driest in the pan among the three shadows, and of course, these shadows last¬†throughout the day. The highlighter is freaking gorgeous like I¬†said earlier and will mention again that if you’re into shimmer shadows this¬†palette is great.

For such great price and quality, I want every single shade, plus backups and repurchase. If these shades is not your cup of tea, head over to my earlier link of neutral shadows) or visit your nearest drugstores, Walmart and Wet n Wild online.

So, there you have it some obsession of mine and I hope you like them too.

Thank you so much for reading.

Madness Wednesday|Two for $3

 

In this¬†Madness Wednesday, I’ll be talking and sharing with you my experience on how to get great deals, coupon and store promotions at the drugstores. I’ll be out doing more footwork and sighting for more good deals in my blog. This will be¬†a weekly ongoing content. I’m super thrilled and can wait to get started. So, let’s begin …

wnw lipstick satin

Yes, I’m hooked with Wet n Wild makeup products and I just can’t stop getting enough of its products. Uh..well, girls you can see that I’m heading to a rather dangerous path and the only thing I¬†can do is finding a smart solution to the¬†problem/obsession. So, in order not to break my bank, I’ve decided to save as much as I¬†can using store coupons, special deals, liquidation sales, store promotions¬†and so on. ¬†Hmm… maybe I should’ve name my content “Frugal in Beauty”. But no, I think I’ll use it for later content.

Anyways, long story short, here is what happened recently at¬†Walmart. Going to Walmart’s beauty section is like a child¬†in¬†a candy store. They carry some exclusive brands like hard candy and flower but my local Walmart carries Milani and Wet n Wild which keeps me excited to check every now and then.

So, my¬†trip to Walmart this time wasn’t that bad. I got to save a few pennies (chicken feed) but better than none, right! They have this promotion at the Wet n Wild section on this new Silk Finish¬†Lipsticks where you get 2 for $3.00. Regular price is $1.78 and¬†I’ll leave you to do the math.

color swatches wnw

The lipsticks shelf of the WnW was pretty much emptied¬†except for a few colors. 2 lipsticks for $3.00 that’s a pretty big deal here. The Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick has now 6 new shades¬†and a whole new formula for the whole lineup for 2015!¬†I managed to pick up these two lovely shades in¬†15 Minutes Aflame which is¬†a bright¬†pink and Will You Be With Me in a light bubblegum pink.

This formula contains vitamin A & E with aloe vera and macadamia nut oil. They have a buildable formula and I can tell you that they’re really¬†comfortable¬†to wear¬†for a long time.

will u be with me shade

On the top right is my naked lips. I applied them using the Will You Be With Me lipstick and voila the finish product. So, as you can see, it’s silky and creamy and let me tell you, it’s long lasting too. Okay,¬†I did check on¬†my teeth if it shows up yellow because pink lipsticks tend to make my teeth looks yellow for some reason. But with this lip¬†color I’m wearing right now, it doesn’t look the slightest bad at all! ¬†Well, I’m just going to wear this out¬†for the next few days¬†and see if I get any compliments. LOL!

Overall, the texture¬†feel¬†soft, glides on easily¬†and nicely¬†pigmented. There is a slight scents on the 15 Minutes Aflame and a tiny faded scent¬†on Will You Be With Me that you might want to take note of. But the scents doesn’t lingers which is good news. I’m definitely not a huge fan of lipsticks that has floral or chemical scents on it.

The one thing I don’t love about is the plastic¬†top¬†where it has to be¬†lined-up just so that it can close properly. I seriously have¬†difficult time¬†with this one. I mean come on,¬†just give me an easily cap that I can close and nothing fancy. I’m basic you know.

15 minutes of aflame shade

This 15 Minutes Aflame lipstick¬†is a bright pink lip color which will look amazing¬†if you like bright or loud color lipstick. Geez… I’m in a pinky mood and I don’t know what’s going on but that’s what’s up.

Alright, let’s go back and talk a little bit more on¬†the above lip color. Isn’t that a pretty bright pink lips you’re looking at? I have the 15 Minutes Aflame on¬†without using any lip concealer, no lip liner and no lip gloss. The picture on the bottom is the final results from the two lip color transfers I tried¬†on my hand. I really love this look ‚̧

After the first and second lip color transfers and until the moisture sets, you can practically kiss anyone without worrying of¬†color transfers. I even kiss my makeup mirror just to test my theory and sadly NO color transfer at all. Maybe this is TMI but just make it clear, I don’t usually kiss my mirror but I do it for you, mwah! ‚̧

I really like the texture and look of these shades. They are comfortable, has a lovely shine and really pretty colors. My favorite is the 15 Minutes Aflame.

This is an amazing lipstick to have¬†if you like trying¬†new colors and it’s so inexpensive. For the quality and price, please do yourself a favor and get one.¬†They’re available at Walmart, drugstores and on Wet n Wild website. May I also remind you that Wet n Wild is cruelty free.

Did you see any shades that appeal to you? Leave your comment in the section below.

Thanks so much for reading.

Wet n Wild Nourishes Lashes |Cruelty Free Mascara

 

wnw mascara

I got this Wet n Wild Nourishes Lashes Mascara more on a whim kind of thing. I got this in Very Black for $3.00 from my local Dollar store. I was  surprised that they carry Wet n Wild product brand and so I was sold by the excitement of seeing Wet n Wild brand.

DSC01557

Frankly speaking, I’m more intrigued by the ingredients used in this mascara than the ¬†appearance results itself. This mascara has soy and wheat which are fortified with protein and enriched with acai oil to condition your lashes. No wonder it’s also called Mega Protein which make a whole lot of sense here.

I notice that this the packaging looks similar to the Covergirl Lashblast Volume mascara. It comes in a plastic-y material and the brush is simple and straight with just some short bristles on. It looks like a brush that can separate your lashes nicely.

DSC01559

When it comes to mascara, I’m pretty”basic” and I’m not ashamed to admit it.¬†I require only four things:

That it doesn’t clump.
Does it darken?
Does it lengthen?
Is it cheap?

So, let’s see if¬†this Nourishes¬†Lashes mascara by Wet n Wild able to rock my lashes?

DSC01561

This Mega Protein mascara claim to nourish and condition your lashes and helps make them fuller and thicker naturally. Well, I just tried it and I’ll continue to use it and will report back the results once I see¬†my lashes improves in volume after using it.

DSC01566

So, for my¬†first impression review, I’ll say that¬†this mascara has passed the test. It’s only $3.00 (score!). On application and vision (refer to pic above), I do see my lashes look both darker and a little longer and if I remove the excess, it doesn’t clump.The good thing about this mascara is that doesn’t¬†flake or¬†clump up, which could be a nightmare for many. One point to note is¬†that this mascara has water element as part of¬†the ingredient. Therefore,¬†it’s¬†not a waterproof mascara.

For you who is looking for a protein enriched mascara,¬†this one’s for you! :p It’s also cruelty and paraben free. Overall, I love the fact that the¬†ingredients used are natural and that it helps condition eyelashes. It’s too soon for me to give this mascara the¬†quality ratings if it actually perform as claimed but one thing I can be sure of is that if you’re looking for a cruelty free mascara with basic expectation, then you’ll like it ūüôā

What do you think of this Wet n Wild mascara? Have you tried any Mega mascara, if yes which one? Don’t forget to leave your comment below.

Wet n Wild Cruelty Free Eyeliner Pencil

 

 

Hey beauties,

Guess what I happened¬†several days ago at Walmart?¬†I was planning to try on the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeliner Pencil ¬†but¬†since¬†I was in a rush I¬†accidentally¬†picked up the Wet n Wild Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil instead. I read Color Icon and just pick it but didn’t read the shimmery part ūüė¶¬†I realised it only after I tried it on.

wnw shimmer eyeliner pencil

I got mine in 154 Black with net wt: 0.03 oz for $1.87 on sale price at Walmart.

This shimmer liner is rich and creamy in formula. It glides like butter on my lash line and it blends effortlessly.¬†But when I looked closer I noticed my eyes were shimmering. The thing is that I’ve sensitive eyes but I’m surprised that this eyeliner¬†doesn’t irritate my eyes like¬†some eyeliner general do especially when it comes with glitter.

DSC01746

If you have been following my blog, you know the meaning of the bunny logo. Yes, it means it’s Not tested on animals which translate to cruelty free. Wet n Wild is a drugstore brand which participate in the¬†cruelty free program. This is a new formulated color icon that has such great pigmentation and is fortified with vitamin E acetate to offer long lasting color.

DSC01747

In this shimmer color icon eyeliner category, there are four shimmery shades available. These eyeliners are not expensive at all and work really well. The downside is there’s only a few shades to choose from and you need to sharpen this pencil.

DSC01733

In my opinion, I feel that the texture of this color icon¬†liner feels like the kohl pencils which I love. And as far as the pigmentation goes, I’ll say it vary from shade to shade, for instance Black is not an intense black but soft black. But when i put it on, it feels very pigmented and creamy.

Available at any drugstores, Walmart, ebay, walgreen and Wet n Wild online website. For only less than $2.00 I think it’s extremely affordable way to experiment with colors and try some¬†shades you wouldn’t wear. If you’re looking for an eyeliner that bedazzle your eyes without been¬†irritated by the glitters then¬†you’ll like this¬†Wet n Wild Color Icon Shimmer Eyeliner ‚̧

Overall, I wouldn’t mind picking this Black Shimmer Eyeliner at all. I wouldn’t have pick it if it wasn’t by mistake and¬†I’m glad I did.

Do you already own any Color icon Shimmer Eyeliners? I’d love to hear from you! Don’t forget to leave your comment below.

Wet n Wild Color Icons Eyeshadow Palette

 

Hey Cuties! Today, I’m working on one of my drugstore‚Äôs favourite eyeshadow palette. I did a review a week ago where I raved about the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette and today I‚Äôm bringing in yet another palette from the same family, the Petal Pusher. This palette has more purplish-pink hues for cooler skin-toned compared to Comfort Zone palette.

petal pusher wnw

After my experienced with Comfort Zone, I rushed to get another same palette to stock up in my stash. A few days ago, while shopping, I saw this Petal Pusher and it’s calling to me. So, obviously I got to get it. I’m also very curious to know if there is any difference between these two palettes.

Anyways, I posted on facebook and twitter if I should do a review and the answer is yes. So, here I am doing just that. A REVIEW! Yay!!!

color on pan

I noticed that in Petal Pusher the formula is a little different compares to Comfort Zone. First thing first, the texture in the pan are much drier or solid especially the Browbone, Eyelid and Define on my left column while on the right column the Crease and Definer are more rough on touch.

Unfortunately the¬†White browbone and Lavender eyelid weren’t¬†able to transform the shades as¬†best as¬†the other shades in the palette. There are many tiny micro-glitters on both¬†the Crease and Definer formula category. I love the Soft Pink browbone highlighter which is the most creamiest and softest of all. The pigmentation is simply incredible with a satin silky finish. Where else the other shades have more metallic finish except the white and lavender which looked more matte finish to me. I don’t know, it’s late now and my eyes may be playing tricks on me, or maybe different lighting angle ūüė¶

wnw eyeshadow

Now get your shadow-brushes and be ready to blend, blend and blend!

Keep this line-up on standby for the next time you hit snooze, and prepare to be impressed.

color swatch 2

The highly pigmented creamy formula of this product is one-stop makeup exemplified, for it can be applied in a matter of seconds, lasts incredibly well and the formula is such as requires minimal blending.

The above color swatches you could wear them for evening wear while the bottom shades will be more for daywear.

color swatch 1

It‚Äôs an ideal piece to reach for if you’re in a rush or on-the-go especially the Comfort Zone Color Icon palette. I do like this Petal Pusher palette which has more¬†cool-toned shades than the Comfort Zone and¬†the shades are versatile where you can create a sultry or intense eye makeup look.

What are your one-stop makeup favourites?

Wet n Wild Megalast Matte Lipstick|Swatch|Review

 

 

Hey beauties!

Remember that I mentioned in my previous post that I haul a good handful of drugstore beauty products? Well, this Wet n Wild Megalast Matte lipstick is the one that I want to talk to you about today.

I have started to love wnw makeup line lately since as far as I can remember wnw wasn’t so good. In the past few years wnw has grown & revamped there whole line. They have amazing eye shadows and beautiful lipsticks that’s so cool.

wet n wild lipstick

I did a review before actually of another shade which is the Pink Suga awhile ago. I’ll leave a link below if you like to check it out. Anyways, since I love the experience I have with this megalast lipstick, yeah! I pick another shade in Rose Bud. Such a pretty… pretty color that just light up my pale-tired face. Net wt: 0.17 oz for $2.78 at Walmart.

color swatch wet n wild lippies

The texture is smooth and it glides beautifully. I simply love how generously pigmented this lipstick is! It’s incredibly pigmented and the color is gorgeous. I mean look at that swatch, right! It gives a matte finish look and it¬†last for what feels like forever! lol After the photos I took them off with a baby wipe and washed my hand¬†and you could still see color stain¬†of the color.¬† So very pigmented !

lips swatches wnw

On this look, I’m not wearing lip primer¬†or lip balm so it looks a little chapped since I feel that the downside of this formula is that it tends to dry up lips ūüė¶

I have here Pink Suga in 900B – a neutral nude and Rose-Bud in 904B – a pretty dark rose.

Final thoughts on¬†this megalast lip color is 8 out of 10. Totally worth the price. Ill be picking up a few more shades for sure. What about you? Will you be picking some springy or summery shades too? Please let comment below. I love to read your comments ‚̧

Thank you as usual for taking the time to read.

Wet n Wild Mega Last|Review|Swatch

 

Hey lovelies,

Today, I’ll be sharing with you a short review of this Wet n Wild Mega Last lipstick which I posted earlier before in my beauty haul. If you like, please check the link here.

Available in twenty four long lasting shades. Makeup sure that you look at the lipstick color formula¬†when choosing your right shade because I notice¬†that the label description at the bottom doesn’t match the actual color formula. The actual formula is darker than the label.

Wet n Wild lipstick in 900B Pink Suga is a velvety matte lipstick with awesome pigmentation. I just love how beautiful it was on swatch. I’m quite impressed on¬†how matte and lovely¬†this nude shade. It’s long lasting and should I say durable!

On first application, the texture seems to be a little bit drier than other matte lipsticks I have tried a dozen times before. One thing that is lacking is the creamy moisture formula. To counter it, you can apply a lip gloss on leaving your lips nice and pretty! Awesome!!!!

In my case, since I love matte lipstick, I don’t mind wearing it without the lip gloss. A perfect nude that feels so natural ūüôā

Which is your favorite Spring lip color?

So, thank you so very much for stopping by.
