Best Drugstore Palettes – Oldies but Goodies

 

Hey everybody! Today’s post I’m going to talk about my all time favorite drugstore palettes. As much as I love to talk about new product releases, I want to share with you some of my oldies but goodies favorites here.

Favorite Drugstore Palettes

In this post, I’ll be talking about the best drugstore eyeshadow palettes that I’ve been loving over the past and till this date. As you may notice on the title of this post, you’ll also find some wear and tear from these palettes. All color swatches shown below are without primer and is swiped on bare arms using only my fingers.

Let’s get started!

Milani Palette
US$11.00

First up is the¬†Milani Everyday Eyes Palettes¬†that I fell head over heels over with. As soon as I saw a beauty YouTuber talks about the new launch many moons ago, I started my quest to hunt it down. Soon enough, I found it at Walmart a week later and the rest is history. I’ve been loving this palette ever since. It’s a gorgeous palette! I really like that it has a bright orange shadow that will be perfect for summer wear. While the rest of the neutral colors you can wear them on your no- makeup makeup day.

If you haven’t tried this yet, I’m telling you to run to your nearest drugstore or Walmart and grab one today. For the price and quality, it’s drugstore thumb’s up from me! By the way, did I mentioned that it’s also cruelty free! Thought you might want to know.

elf palette
US$10.00

I’m a fan of e.l.f products and when I saw they launched their eyeshadow palette, I was in cloud nine. It’s rare to find all matte eyeshadows from a drugstore brand but e.l.f sure nails it with the e.l.f. Mad for Matte Palette that houses 10 eyeshadow shades.¬†

Nicely pigmented shadows that’s easily blendable and natural looking but you still need an eyeshadow base or primer if you’re looking for a bold and intense matte finishing then look no further. Here’s something you would love for beginners.

WNW palette
US$6.99

Next in my list of favorite is another Wet n Wild Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette. If you love natural eyeshadow palette with a hint of plum shadows, then you’re going to like this.

I really have nothing bad to say about the pigmentation as you can see them for yourself. You get a nice color selections of shimmer and matte shadows all in one palette. If it’s calling your name, then do yourself a favor and pick up one today.

cover girl palette
US$9.98 at Walmart

When it comes to Covergirl Eyeshadows Palette, I don’t have much luck with this brand. It’s either a hit or miss. But when I saw their new launch of¬†Covergirl TruNaked Palette at my local drugstore¬†–¬†I was completely sucked in.

To be honest, I don’t put much expectation on this based on past history but I was totally taken a back when I did the color swatch. Turns out, the formula is super pigmented, smooth and soft! All the shades are so versatile that you’ll want to wear them everyday. Definitely give this palette a try!

wnw comfort zone palette
US$4.99

I save the best for last and it’s the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette. It’s not a new release but rather an old palette that keeps me going back to wear it after all these years. The pigmentation is mind blowing. Super pigmented!!! Love that Wet n Wild products are not tested on animals and if you’re environmentally concern then you’re going to love this. I swear by it! Get yours NOW!

How gorgeous is it! Incredibly pigmented formula with the best affordable pricing only available at Walmart or your local drugstores. It’s definitely a winner in my book!

Well there you have it! My favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes! Which is your favorite palette of them all?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Thank you for taking the time to read.
