Autumn Shades for Eyes and Lips

Every few months Wet N Wild release a new collection. The latest offering comes in the form of a limited edition fall collection containing exquisite shades for autumn and winter. Think beautiful gold, rose gold, and bronzy brown shades. The accompanying lipsticks are matte and in deep berry shades.

Eyeshadow palette in "Smoke and Melrose"

This eyeshadow palette contains five warm-toned neutral eyeshadows. The shades are extremely wearable both day and night. The quality is what we've come to expect from Wet N Wild: buttery and blendable with little to no fallout and good staying power. There is one matte shade (brow bone), a dusky purple-pink, and the rest of the shades contain subtle shimmer. There is a pink shell colour (base), a beautiful taupe (eyelid), a shimmery gold crease shade, and a rich plum definer shade. This palette is fast becoming one of my favourites!

Matte Lipsticks in "Urban Night" and "Sugar Plum Fairy"

I'm not normally one for bright lip colours, but this winter I've decided to dip my toe in the plummy pool. Part of the Fall collection is a deep red lipstick in the shade "Urban Night" (left). It has a creamy consistency and turns to a matte lipstick that feels comfortable on the lips. You can see swatches here.

"Sugar Plum Fairy" is a permanent shade and also a matte lipstick. This shade is a perfect dupe for Mac Rebel. It also applies very nicely and settles into a comfortable stain. You can see some swatches here.

Urban Night is a dark burgundy red and comes across more plummy than in the bullet. Sugar Plum Fairy is more purple and comes across more pink-purple than in the bullet. Both lipsticks are extremely long-lasting and although they are matte do not dry out my lips, which is no mean feat! I stand corrected, but I think these were R45 each, and I think they are extremely good value for money.

Do you own any of these products? Let me know in the comments section!

Until next time!
