wet n wild Haul: Popular Products & New Faves

Friday, December 02, 2016
I always get excited when one of my favorite makeup brands runs an online sale. You can almost be guaranteed that I will buy something. I did take advantage of wet n wild's recent 25% off sale. I used the sale to get my hands on some of their online only products, as well as their most popular items that I often see people wearing on the internet. I have to say, I'm really liking all of my selections. I did have one issue with my package. Two of my products arrived completely destroyed, as if I had dropped them on the floor repeatedly. I would say that my box received too much "love" during shipping. wet n wild customer service was so kind to me and sent me replacements for my broken items. However, the bronzer arrived smashed to smithereens once again. One good thing does come out of this experience- I get to make a how to repair broken makeup tutorial for you! Anyway, let's move on to the haul!

Brushes

I highly recommend wet n wild brushes. The bristles are super soft and really feel like they are high quality. An added bonus is the finger rest groove on the handle that allows you to comfortably and ergonomically hold your makeup brush. The price of these brushes is so low for how awesome they are! The small stipple brush will be good for applying cream blush and even foundation. I'm really excited for the contour brush. I've tried a large slanted brush, and a more precise brush for my contouring. I've noticed that the large brush blends the contour so much that it's hard to actually see it, while the precise brush is a bit too intense. I think this wet n wild brush will be the perfect happy medium. It's size and slant should be perfect for contouring. My only worry is that it is not dense enough to pick up a proper amount of product, but I will give it a good try before judging it. The smoky liner brush is the perfect size to blend out eyeliner for a dramatic look, or really get in there with precise eyeshadow application. I'm not really sure what you use a large stipple brush for, perhaps foundation. The blush brush looks like it will be another winner, just like the contour brush. I think it will blend out blush well.

Eyelashes

I don't really have much to say about their eyelashes. They are just as good as any other brand of eyelashes. The glue holds up pretty well, I just find cutting the tip off of a new tube to be difficult. I think the names really suit the eyelashes. Volume Vortex is very dramatic, best saved for special occasions. Max Bandwidth is so long! They might look funny on such a small person as myself, but that won't prevent me from rocking them. My favorite are Natural Sync. They are perfect for everyday use, as they truly are natural. By purchasing these I now have all of wet n wild's eyelashes in my collection!

wet n wild Coloricon Ombre Blush in The Princess Daiquiris 

I think the ombre blushes are beautiful. I got this one online because they are actually Target exclusives, and it was sold out during my last trip. This shade of pink is very natural, perfect for everyday use when you want to skip the drama.

wet n wild Coloricon Blush in Apri-cot in the Middle

The formula of wet n wild standard blush is so soft! I really adore this color. I think everyone should have an apricot blush in their collection such as this one, because it pairs perfectly with an orange, bronze, or apricot eyeshadow look.

wet n wild Coloricon Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Days of Fuchsia Past

This metallic liquid lipstick is from their summer limited edition collection. Somehow I did not know this shade existed. I don't remember seeing it in stores or online when I purchased the collection. But, I really like these things, so I had to have it. Just like the others, the pigmentation is crazy and the metallic shine is off the charts. They do stay sticky and glossy like a lipgloss over time, so they don't actually set. While I won't enjoy that, these things are just too great to ignore.

wet n wild Mega Rocks Glitter Nail Color

I already had a few of these bottles that I got clearanced out at Walgreens, as seen in my Walgreens Beauty Haul. I wanted to add more to my collection since they did not have all of the colors, and I'm a junkie for glitter nail polish.

wet n wild Coloricon Bronzer in Ticket to Brazil

As you can see, I ended up having to re-press this bronzer. It still works great. My only complaint is more of a personal nature, in that this is an orangey bronzer. I do not particularly like those because they make me feel like a Dorito. But, if you like that kind of bronzer, then you will like this one. A bonus is that it contains SPF, but I do not see how that benefits you unless you bronze your entire face, bringing us back to the Doritos look again. I do appreciate how it gives a gentle bronze, suitable for fairer skin tones such as mine.

wet n wild To Reflect Shimmer Palette in Boozy Brunch

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of shimmer in this highlighter. I think these shimmer palettes are definitely hidden gems from wet n wild. Besides the fact that this particular shade is great for everyday wear, the size of the product will make it last a long time.
