Wet n Wild has released a small collection for Summer 2014; it includes three limited edition ColorIcon bronzer/blushes which I’ll be reviewing today plus six nail polishes. First, let’s take a look at the three limited edition bronzers compared to the three permanent bronzers. Continue reading
Wet n Wild recently released a limited edition collection for Spring 2014, called “The Style Award Goes To . . .” The collection includes six Megalast nail polishes (I swatched two of them) and two 8-pan eyeshadow palettes, which I have for you today.
Frankly, I hesitated to buy these. Wet n Wild used to have a fantastic eyeshadow formula, but many of their latest released (such as the permanent 5-pan eyeshadow palettes) were not up to par. However, after posting a picture of the display on Instagram and receiving several comments that these eyeshadows are the old, good quality formula, I caved. And I’m glad I did! I don’t think these eyeshadows are as good as the best of Wet n Wild, but they’re decent palettes with a few stand-out shades.
As you may know, Wet n Wild recently released two 8-pan palettes and six Megalast nail polishes, all limited edition. Here’s a shot of the collection from my Instagram.
I haven’t decided yet whether to buy the eyeshadow palettes, but picked up two of the polishes – the others (seen here on Nouveau Cheap – note that her bottles and my bottles have switched shade names) are too frosty for my tastes.
Valet Tag is a taupe with silver shimmer, opaque in two coats. I had hoped the shimmer would be more visible, but I can barely see it on the nail.
Silver Lining is a VERY sheer grey with blue and pink shimmer. It’s lovely, but this is about five coats, and I suspect six would be needed on the nail if you wanted it to be opaque. It’s better for layering.
I accidentally made the above photo too small – sorry – but you see Silver Lining alone, over black, over purple, and over a steely grey. I like it best over the grey.
Have you found this new collection, or are you still looking for it?
During the summer, I posted about the Wet n Wild Fergie Summer collection, which includes many different types of items including several nail polishes (note there’s also another nail polish only Fergie summer collection out). I purchased one of the nail polishes, Cabo Cruise, and it is GORGEOUS.
I saw this around all summer but haven’t seen it lately . . . sorry about that :/ (I found this post in my drafts folder a little while ago – I wish I had published it this summer when the polish was still available!)
Hey everyone – long time, no post! Sorry about that – I’ve had a lot going on. But, I have a backlog of products to share, and let’s start off with a bang – the new Wet n Wild Pop Art Craze limited edition eyeshadow palettes, which I found at Rite Aid this morning.
