A Few New Things From Wet N Wild

I do love a good drugstore brand, and Wet N Wild is just that. Ever since they've landed on our shores a few years ago I have tried quite a few of their products and most were hits in my book. Today I'm going to show you a few new things that I picked up a few weeks ago.

ColorIcon blush in "Pearlescent Pink"

This is the first Wet N Wild blush I've tried and I really like the texture and the colour. The texture is fine and very buttery. The colour is quite a striking orangey pink (it's almost the colour of a guava) with shimmer. The blush applies easily and evenly, but the shimmer does tend to spread across my cheeks during the day. It's not a major problem and I think that I can combat that by using the correct primer, or by applying a cream blush of the same shade underneath this blush.

ColorIcon 5 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in "Girls just wanna have funds" (LE)

I love Wet N Wild's eyeshadows, especially the palettes. They are super affordable and better quality than a lot of high-end brands. That being said, the quality of this eyeshadow palette isn't the best I've seen from them. The colours are stunning: a metallic cream, a light metallic apple green, a mossy brown, a bottle green, and a rich chocolate brown. The shadows are buttery and quite pigmented, but they don't apply as smoothly and patch-less as the other WnW eyeshadows. I've also found the staying power to be not as good as their other shadows. The colours are, however, stunning and really pull a makeup look together.

UltimateBrow Highlighter in "Highlight of my life"

This creamy white (with a slight pink tinge) pencil is to be applied lightly under the brow bone and blended out to create the illusion of light, thereby "lifting" the eyebrow. As can be seen it's incredibly creamy and applies easily, but the shade is much too stark for my skin tone. I can't remember if there were other shades, but this is much too pale.

1 Step Wonder Gel Nail Color in "Don't be jelly!"

This shade is such a soft and pretty lilac with a very subtle shimmer, only detectable if you're looking at my nails from very close by. The brush is nice and wide which makes applying the polish a dream. A single swipe is enough to cover my entire pinky nail perfectly. The formulation is creamy and I don't find that the polish applies streaky. I've also not seen any chips, bubbles, or gloopy ribbons. I've only just painted it so I can't comment on longevity just yet.

I'm thinking of buying more of the 1 Step Wonder Gel nail polishes and also the new eyeshadow primer which is apparently a reasonable dupe for the Urban Decay Primer Potion. Which Wet N Wild products can you recommend? Let me know in the comment section!

Until next time!
