wet n wild New 2017 Products Haul

Friday, February 10, 2017
To me, the most exciting part of starting a new year is the new makeup! Many makeup brands release an army of new products at the beginning of each year, and wet n wild is no exception! wet n wild released a ridiculously huge amount of new products for 2017, most of which I am very excited to try. I ran into my local Walgreens as soon as the display was put up and grabbed a basket full of goodies. While it was just too expensive to buy every single product, I did get a pretty good representation of the new items. I will continue to collect the new wet n wild 2017 products all year long. If you heart makeup hauls, reviews, swatches, and first impressions, then this post is for you. Even better yet, I have been giving some of these items lots of love lately, which means I have plenty to say about them!

wet n wild Megaglo Makeup Sticks

I must admit that I am not the world's biggest fan of makeup sticks. I tend to be frightened of cream makeup products because they often are thick and drag on the skin, and never seem to set right. I have to say that I am impressed with the swatches of these megaglo makeup sticks. They are all smooth and very easy to swatch. I find that they blend out nicely with my finger, and set once they are blended out. They all seem very pigmented! Look at that glow on the highlighter! The blush also has much glow. I think these will work great with a blending sponge.

wet n wild Megaslim Skinny Mascara and Skinny Tip Eyeliner

The megaslim skinny mascara is definitely a fiber mascara, and is very black. It is unfortunately very dry. I recommend using this with an eyelash primer, such as wet n wild's photofocus eyelash primer. Otherwise it will look like you are not wearing any mascara. I have no plans to repurchase it.

The megaslim skinny tip eyeliner is OK... it is not better than any other felt-tip liner that I have used, and is not a game-changer. It is very black and can easily achieve precise lines. One thing to note here is that the tip is unusually short. I was watching a video online in which it was stated that the short length would make this eyeliner difficult to use for beginners. I am not sure how I feel about that statement. I have no trouble with it, but I am very experienced with eyeliner in general. I say spend the $5 at your own risk.

wet n wild Perfect Pout Gel Lip Liners

I am blown away by the formula on these! They swatched easily, no dragging at all. The colors are gorgeous and will surely pair well with a wide range of lip colors. The tip is just the right size. They have fit right into my makeup routine.

wet n wild Mega Cushion Contour and Highlight

It is becoming obvious quickly that cushion makeup products are going to be trendy in 2017. So far I really like the mega cushion products! They blend out easily, and the packaging is adorable. I dip my blending sponge right into the product, rather than use the awful pad sponge thing they come with. I wonder how long they will last before they dry up or just run out. I have provided a few different images so that you can see how the packaging works.

wet n wild Mega Cushion Soft Matte Lip Cream in Doll So Hard

My major turn-off with this product is that I have to squeeze it incredibly hard to get the product to dispense. I have actually purchased another color since getting this one and the problem persists. The cushion applicator is quite interesting, but I am doubtful that you can get a lot of precision while applying it. Other than that it quickly dries to a completely matte finish.

wet n wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks

If you picked up any of wet n wild's matte liquid lipsticks from their past limited edition collections then you will find these liquid catsuit matte lipsticks familiar. They are the same formula and packaging, just with a new name. I am overjoyed that they are now part of the regular line because I really like them. They dry fully matte in a few minutes and are highly pigmented. I have no problem with how they feel on my lips, but I do recommend using a lip liner under them to assist with the matte feel. This collection comes in a range of to die for colors. Seriously, they are all perfection. I plan on collecting them all over time.

wet n wild Photofocus Foundation in Nude Ivory

At first I was upset that not all 20 shades were available in store, but now I am glad because I would have bought the lightest shade, which would be too light. Nude Ivory was the lightest one available, and it is perfect for me! Overall I am obsessed with this foundation and it is my new everyday favorite. I have not been able to find a foundation that I absolutely adore and trust besides my all-time favorite wet n wild Coverall Foundation. Finally, a winner! The finish is beautiful- it looks like your real skin and is not cakey at all, not even when set with powder. It refuses to sink into most of my lines. Also, I always get oily on my forehead, nose, and chin, but with this foundation, only my nose gets oily! Which is fine because there is no product in the world that will stop my nose oil from coming through. The only bad things are the paint-like smell and the fact that it dries fast. Be sure to apply it in sections! I apply it with the spatula right to my face and blend with a blending sponge.

wet n wild Photofocus Pressed Powder in Warm Light

Again, this was the lightest shade available in stores. I believe this powder truly helps the foundation work well, as described above. This is the only powder I use with the foundation. Some people complain that it makes your skin look dry, but it works great for me. I have oily areas and normal areas and it still looks fine. The powder is very soft and creamy.

Photofocus Concealer in Light Ivory

Light Ivory is the lightest shade that the concealer is available in, but it is just not light enough in my opinion. I use concealers to brighten my under eye area, but this one is not light enough compared to the foundation. It has a standard doe-foot applicator. Some people complain that this concealer is too matte and even looks dry on the skin. I have normal skin under my eyes and do not have any problems with this concealer.
