Wet n Wild Haul + First Impressions + Swatches

Hi everyone! So I was at K-Mart the other day, yet again! I always seem to find myself in there since it is one of the main places on Guam where I can find cosmetics. I ended up picking up a few Wet n Wild products that I had been wanting to try so I just thought I'd share my great finds with you all!

Wet n Wild Haul!

Wet n Wild Lipstick in 966 Don't Blink Pink: This lipstick is a super bright pink! I really have no words to describe it other than that it's absolutely gorgeous and so on trend for Spring!

Wet n Wild Lipstick in 968 Pinkerbell: This lipstick is a gorgeous yellow-toned pink and I love love love it! The MAC lipstick called Viva Glam Nicki that has been getting a lot of hype lately and I heard that Pinkerbell was a really close dupe so I snatched one up right away! I'm pretty sure the finish is different because Pinkerbell is a matte finish while Viva Glam Nicki has a satin finish. But you can't beat Wet n Wild's prices when it comes to testing out a new, bold color!

Wet n Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink: This is a blush that I've been wanting to try simply because I heard it was a dupe for the Nars Orgasm blush which as you all may remember is my all time favorite blush. So I decided to try this out to see if it really could match up to my beloved Nars Orgasm. I must say, it is pretty darn close! However, it's slightly darker pink and doesn't have quite as much golden shimmer as Orgasm. It is actually more pigmented than Orgasm too; you only need the slightest amount of this for it to show up so be sure to apply using a light hand.

Wet n Wild Coloricon Trio in Walking on Eggshells: I always hear people raving about the Wet n Wild Trios but I had only tried out the 6-pan shadows which sadly have been discontinued. So I finally gave in and picked up a couple and of course I picked up the most neutral ones because I am pretty much a neutral eyeshadow addict. Anyway, this trio lives up to the hype it gets because it is beautiful and so easy to use! It is perfect for an everyday look and includes a off-white highlight color with a pearly finish, a slightly metallic copper-bronze crease shade, and a pearly pinky-champagne color for all over the lid. The back even has a cute little diagram to show you exactly where to place the colors which is helpful for makeup beginners. Oh and the shadows are extremely soft, well pigmented, and easy to blend. What more could you ask for in an eyeshadow?

Wet n Wild Coloricon Trio in Silent Treatment: This trio is the other neutral one I saw so I picked it up as well. It includes a shimmery champagne color for the brow bone, a black with tiny purple shimmers for the crease, and a silvery taupe for the eyelid with a pearly finish. This is a great palette for an easy smokey eye. The champagne color isn't as pigmented as the one in Walking on Eggshells but it's still really pretty. The black isn't very pigmented but can be built up. With that being said, black can be difficult to work with at times so sometimes a less pigmented black is easier to use so you can slowly build it up to your liking. I love the taupe eyelid color. It could be worn all by itself and would still look good.

  9. Orgasm does seem to be the go-to comparison blush. This one doesn't seem to have the shimmer that orgasm does though. Must get some tips off you for taking photos of swatches, mine are always terrible!
