Hello everyone! Happy Friday ❤
With temperatures slowly rising here in Southern California (and summer around the corner!), I felt that my go-to makeup routine needed some updating. Summer, for me, tends to be the ideal time for more natural, glowy looks. Wet ‘n Wild, an affordable cruelty-free makeup brand, released several new products in their spring/summer collection and also reformulated some of their original products. I picked up a few of their goodies from my local drugstore and after trying them out for a couple of weeks, I’m here to share if they’re hits or misses!
Au Naturel EyeShadow Palette – Bare Necessities 753A
I picked up this eyeshadow palette mainly because it was under five (or six?) dollars. I didn’t swatch it at the store or anything, but the colors were pretty enough to make it into my shopping basket. The packaging is sleek and the palette includes a double-sided eyeshadow applicator inside (the kind that doesn’t last very long though). There are 10 shadows in total, eight of which are shimmery. There are two brown toned mattes shades and each shade is labelled as a number (from left to right). These shadows are pretty pigmented, blend fairly very well, but are more powdery than buttery.
Photo Focus Setting Spray
According to the Wet ‘n Wild website, this makeup setting spray claims to be a “weightless formula” that will “extend makeup wear.” I used this spray multiple times, sometimes switching out products to test out the longevity, and must agree that this product does what it says it will. The spray nozzle releases product evenly and the formula doesn’t make your face feel sticky or dry. For less than five dollars, your makeup will last most of the day with this setting spray (it’s amazing!).
MegaGlo Illuminating Palette – Catwalk Pink 320
I’m all for that twinkling highlighted skin, especially during the spring and summer. This Illuminating Palette reminded me of Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips and since it’s more affordable, I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, there isn’t much color payoff with this product, even with the new formula. It was much to sheer to me and I found it wasn’t very visible on the skin. I tried mixing all the shades together but it still wasn’t enough to make a noticeable difference.
Overall, I feel that Wet ‘n Wild is a promising brand that has some great products. I was pleasantly surprised by the Au Naturel Eyeshadow palette in Bare Necessities 753A and think the colors are absolutely lovely. It’s definitely a hit. Another product that I particularly enjoy (more like love!) is the Photo Focus Setting Spray. Seriously, track it down and try it. It’s a hit for me! Lastly, the MegaGlo Illuminating palette didn’t do much for me so it’s a miss in my book, but maybe it could work for you.
What Wet ‘n Wild products have you tried? Any recommendations?
P.S. New post every Friday!
