Haul: Wet n' Wild Cosmetics

Okay, so I feel like I should do a Black Friday haul but a lot of it was clothes except for three things so I will continue to think about it or leave a comment letting me know if you want to see!! Anywho, I stopped by Walgreen's on my way home today and I remembered seeing Walgreens ad in the newspaper and it said that Wet n' Wild cosmetics were 50% off! They are already very inexpensive to begin with so this was an amazing deal! I picked up 5 things with a total of $8.04 (including tax.) I also found a nail polish but I think the cashier forgot to ring it up because it's no where to be found on my receipt on in my bag :(. 

I have been needing a new bronzer with none or very little shimmer. The one I am currently using is Elf's Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder. The bronzer in that is very shimmery although a perfect color. The WnW one is even better. It has barely any shimmer or sparkle and is the perfect shade for my skin. It contours beautifully. The one thing though is that when you dab your brush one the powder, the powder chunks together and kind of goes all over. If you can get past that con I definitely recommended it. 

One of the next two products is everywhere in the YouTube beauty guru world. The eyeshadow in the shade Nutty. It is a very beautiful color. It has a shimmer finish with a touch of frost but it still makes for a gorgeous color. It is a light brown with silver/white shimmer. It would be perfect for a crease color for a day look or a very natural look.The other single eyeshadow I purchased was Envy. It is a shimmery army green- perfect for this season's army and military trend :). I think this color would look really nice as an all over lid color with gold liner top and bottom and full lashes. Over all these shadows are SUPER pigmented. I can't emphasize super enough. I lightly ran my finger over it to do a swatch and so much product came off (in a good way.) I really look forward to using these. 
This next product is an eyeshadow palette. It is in the color Vanity.There are 6 colors- 3 matte and 3 shimmery. My favorite color just from swatching is the shimmery white one (the second swatch from the white side). I think it will make a great highlight. I was a little disappointed in the pigmentation of the lighter colors. The matte colors seemed a little chalky to me. I will continue to use these and see if they are worthy of my every day use :) 

The last product is a lipstick. It is in the color Bare something...I threw away the wrapping and the lipstick tube doesn't have the name. It does have a number though: 902C. This is the perfect nude shade for my skin next to Revlon's Soft Nude. The formula is very creamy and it "dries" matte. I would recommend using a lip liner underneath though because after about 10-15 minutes of wearing it i noticed it started disappearing on the inner part of my lips. The swatch on my hand shows it more of a pinky but the color on my lips is the true color. 

I hope you found this post helpful :). I apologize for not posting as often as I did previously but school is consuming my free time :( I have end of the year exams coming up and teachers are cramming many assignments and tests in. I will hopefully catch up over the Winter Break. I have some interesting post ideas: Cold Weather Essentials: Beauty and other random things; a haul with nail polish and decals from Japan :); and maybe a Black Friday will be late haha.

  1. i apologize for the formatting of this matter how it looks in the edit post page it always turns out messy and different on here :(

  2. def. going by walgreens tomorrow to pick some wet n wild up! :] hopefully it will be 50% off. :]]

  3. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog :) Are the Wet and Wild lipsticks moisturizing at all? jw because I want to try them but I don't want it dry out my lips.

  4. the line that i got isn't. i think they are the matte ones but i would recommend putting a lip balm on prior to applying the lipstick
