New wet n wild Products 2018

Sunday, February 04, 2018
As you may or may not know, I am a wet n wild collector and junkie. The reason for this is that wet n wild is an affordable drugstore brand that has managed to keep their prices down for years, while we see that other drugstore brands are sneakily jacking their prices up. In addition, it is rare that a wet n wild product ever fails me. The quality is superior for the low price point. I must say, these new wet n wild products for 2018 really bring the brand to a new level. This year wet n wild has released new shades of popular products, created some new products and brushes, and have reformulated and/or repackaged eyeshadows. I bought every single new product for the sake of this post so that I can swatch and review everything for you. I have even included a special treat! If I had the old version of a revamped product in my collection, I went ahead and provided side-by-side swatches and reviews. I also noted that wet n wild snuck some limited edition items into the mix under a new name. I have side-by-side comparisons to help you decide if it is worth spending the money if you already have the products. This is officially the biggest post I have ever done. I usually split up larger posts, but I felt like all of the products had to be together. Let's get started.

New wet n wild products 2018
New wet n wild products 2018

wet n wild photofocus Matte Finish Setting Spray in Matte Appeal

The first product in the new wet n wild products bunch for 2018 is a matte setting spray. I already had their original setting spray and I think it works well, so it was a no brainer to add this one to my collection. As an oily gal I definitely appreciate matte products. After releasing this matte setting spray, wet n wild renamed their original spray to "natural finish." I find the name change to be highly accurate, as it never made any finish claims, nor did it provide your skin with a particular finish. It simply helped lock your makeup in all day. I am a fan of the camera lens packaging.

wet n wild coloricon Color Correctors

I have an obsession with color corrects- I just have to try them all! I was really impressed by the swatches of these color correctors. The formula is thick, streak-free, creamy, and the shades are true to color. The final test will be blending them out on the skin to see if they actually correct anything, but I have a good feeling about them.

wet n wild photofocus Dewy Face Primer

I have the original face primer, and I think it is a great, basic drugstore primer. The dewy version is a nude, skin-toned color, with shimmer. I would imagine it will work as well as the original. After releasing the dewy primer, wet n wild renamed and repackaged the original and called it "matte." I do not agree with the name change. I found the primer to be a basic primer that does not provide a particular finish. I think they could have just kept it as "photofocus face primer," which would have caused no confusion with the dewy version.

wet n wild megaslim Skinny Mascara Waterproof

I have the original, non-waterproof version of this mascara. I never had any issues with it, but then again I never submerged myself in water. The thin wand makes it ideal for bottom lash application. If you want to use it on your top lashes, be sure to use a lash primer to get the most bang for your buck. This is the only time I will recommend a lash primer, but it is the only way to really see this mascara on your top lashes. I use it with wet n wild's lash primer. This is a fiber mascara.

wet n wild megaglo Highlighting Powder in Diamond Lily

I am a huge fan of the megaglo highlighting powders, and I think they are the best highlighters from the drugstore hands down. I am all about new shades. Diamond Lily is straight up silver, but I do not have another silver highlighter in my collection, so I am ok with the color choice.

wet n wild mega cushion Foundation in 106A Light Ivory

I bought the lightest shade this foundation comes in, and it is a lovely shade match for my skin. It may look a bit yellow on my wrist, but it looks fabulous on my face. The foundation contains natural coconut derivates, which makes it smell yummy. It feels lightweight on the skin. I really liked how it looked by the end of the day. I must say, I have adored every wet n wild foundation I have tried, and they are all staples in my collection. These people know how to make foundation! I feel like you get a good amount of product for just $8, which is half the price of Maybelline's cushion foundation, and it wears better on me. I apply cushion foundation with a damp blending sponge.

wet n wild ultimatebrow Retractible Brow Pencil in Medium Brown

I appreciate that this brow pencil has a spoolie on one end, and that the product tip is triangular. I think the shade will be a match for me. It swatched like a typical brow product, but the formula is dryer than I expected. Hopefully it glides through the brows easily.

wet n wild Pro Brush Set

Did you notice that over the holidays wet n wild released a pro brush line exclusive to Walgreens, followed by a release on their website with "similar" brushes that were more than double the price? Well, I am here to address the drama and tell you all straight up about the fast one wet n wild pulled on their customers.

I first found the exclusive Walgreens set in December. It retailed for $30, and the box claimed that it was a $90 value. I was immediately intrigued and added it to my Christmas list. Shortly after discovering the brush set, Walgreens did a half off sale, making the brush set $15. It sold out in a few days in all stores and online. They did not restock the brush set. Sometime after this wet n wild released the pro brush set on their website. I am here to confirm for you that the Walgreens set and the wet n wild online set are THE EXACT SAME BRUSHES. Here are the only differences:
  • The Walgreens set has white bristles and silver handles, while the wet n wild set has ombre pink bristles and pink handles
  • The wet n wild set has brush numbers on each brush, while the Walgreens set does not
To buy the full brush bundle from wet n wild will run you $70. What happened to the $90 value they claimed on the Walgreens set? Yeah, I think that was a bunch of crap. What I ended up doing was going on Ebay and buying the Walgreens set for $30. I absolutely recommend going this route before spending the $70 with wet n wild. Now, these brushes are probably the highest quality that you will find at the drugstore and are totally worth the money. If you need to go the $70 route, I say buy only the brushes that you need and/or will use, because they are worth the $5.99 a piece. I am just annoyed that wet n wild tried to pull a fast one and never addressed the Walgreens brushes.

The brushes themselves have a weight and feel of quality to them. The bristles are heavenly soft and provide an airbrushed look. So far I have not had any shedding issues.

Dome Pencil Eye Brush

This brush can be used for eyeshadow blending, as well as eyeshadow application in the outer-v.

Tapered Blending Brush

This has become my new brush for eyeshadow application on the eyelid, which has caused me to stop using my elf eyeshadow C brush that I have been using daily for years.

Flat Contour Brush

This brush is designed to apply contour to the hollows of the cheeks, and for contouring down the sides of the nose.

I have heard that people really like using this brush to apply concealer to the under eye. While I have not yet found a use for it, I say try it with concealer.

wet n wild perfectpout Gel Lip Liners

I am a huge fan of the gel lip liners. While I have other lip liners in my collection, I have to force myself to stop using these daily and to use the others I own. These are my daily lip liners because the formula is silky smooth and glides on effortlessly with no tugging. The pigmentation is there, and these liners come in every color you could possibly need.

wet n wild megaglo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighters

Being that the megaglo highlighting powders are out of this world, I expected a lot from the Hello Halo line. These are liquid highlighters that come in glass bottles. They feature a large doe-foot applicator, which makes application super easy. Typically, liquid highlighters have droppers, which can be messy and difficult to work with. I literally dot the highlighter on my cheekbones with the doe-foot, and it works great. I do advise applying this product before applying powders, or else it will set odd. In general, you always want to use liquids and cremes before powder. These things swatch amazing- super blinding. They blend out on the face to give a subtle glow. If you find the megaglo highlighting powders to be too much bling for you, I recommend these for a healthy glow. I blend them out with a damp blending sponge and/or my fingers. They are definitely not as concentrated as the CoverFX drops, which is nice. Ultimately some of the shades are too dark for use on my face, but I could foresee using them on my eyes as an inner corner or brow bone highlight, and even on the eyelid.

Halographic is perhaps the most fun Hello Halo. It looks entirely white in the bottle and on the applicator, but it has a stunning pink/purple shift.

wet n wild megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks

Continuing with the new wet n wild products for 2018 is more shades in the liquid catsuit matte lipstick line. I cannot say enough good things about this line. I love the staying powder, pigmentation, streak-free application, and the fact that they are truly matte. They are on the drier side of matte, but not entirely uncomfortable. If you like a totally comfortable matte lip, these may not be for you. I always use a lip liner to prevent bleeding outside of my lip line and to add comfort. I really like the new colors in the line, but some are too wild for my taste. I cannot see myself using the teal, black, or gray. I also noticed that wet n wild already released the black and gray in their Fantasy Makers line in October, and simply renamed the colors and snuck them into the regular line. I have side-by-side swatches to see if they are the same.

wet n wild megalast Liquid Catsuit Liquid Eyeshadows

I am not the biggest fan of liquid eyeshadow, and it is not something I reach for often. However, I am interested in giving these a try. They come in a wide color range, and surely pack on the sparkle. They do swatch somewhat streaky and uneven, but I think that carefully building the product up on the eyelid will remedy the situation. They have a small, flat doe-foot applicator, making application directly on the eyelid simple. I did notice that four of the shades are repeats from the limited edition Midnight Mermaid collection, they simply renamed and repackaged the shades. I really do not think it is fair to sneak limited edition products into the regular product mix. They create all this hype over the limited edition stuff and crazy customers bend over backwards to collect everything, then they bring it out to stay without saying a word. I could see if there was a high demand for the product to become permanent, but otherwise, no thank you.

wet n wild megalast Lip Colors

wet n wild's lipsticks are excellent, standard lipsticks from the drugstore. I particularly love the megalast line because they hold up longer than traditional lipsticks, and the finish is more demi-matte than full-on shine. They are always creamy and packed with pigment in one swipe. I am really digging Never Nude from the new lineup.

I would like to note there is one more new shade from this line, which is a black lipstick called "Black Out." I decided not to purchase it because I already have the black lipstick from the Fantasy Makers line. They released it under the name "Eerie Onix." They also had a silk finish version simply named "Black." I will probably never use black lipstick, so why have two hanging around my collection going bad?

wet n wild coloricon Eyeshadow Singles

I would like to start off by making a general statement about all of the eyeshadows in today's post. wet n wild has some of the best eyeshadows in the drugstore. They are always highly pigmented and blendable. I can say that all of the new shadows are completely awesome and still live up to wet n wild expectations. I noticed that when swatching old eyeshadows vs the new formulas that the new felt super soft. I will say that the new had a lot of kick-up, and I created a huge mess doing all the swatching. I can definitely look past the kick-up and adore the eyeshadows.

wet n wild discontinued a ton of coloricon eyeshadow singles while revamping the line. They ultimately kept a few shades, and introduced new ones. They also redesigned the packaging. I did notice that in the old line they named the shimmery shadows "coloricon shimmer singles," while the matte shadows were just "coloricon eyeshadow singles." Now, no matter the finish, each shadow is simply "coloricon eyeshadow singles." The packaging does not state if the old shades they decided to keep have been reformulated or not, but I went ahead and provided side-by-side swatches of the old vs new.

wet n wild megalast Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipsticks

We first got the Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipsticks from the limited edition Midnight Mermaid collection. I noticed that the Midnight Mermaid tubes said these were "metallic matte," while the permanent line only says "metallic." I can confirm these are all metallic mattes. I have no idea why they dropped the word "matte." Also, two of the shades are duplicates from the Midnight Mermaid collection, just renamed and repackaged. I think this line is gorgeous and I cannot wait to get them on my lips. The pigmentation and metallic properties are there, and the formula is creamy.

wet n wild coloricon 10 Pan Eyeshadow Palettes

The update to the coloricon eyeshadow palettes is super exciting, as wet n wild finally has included transition shades. Two of the palettes in the line are remakes of old palettes- Comfort Zone and Nude Awakening. Comfort Zone claims to be reformulated, and now includes gorgeous transition shades. Nude Awakening simply claims to be repackaged, with the same shades and formula. Rose In the Air and Not a Basic Peach are brand new palettes. Yes, I definitely think Rose In the Air is a Modern Renaissance dupe.

Old vs new Comfort Zone 

I really cannot tell much of a difference between the two formulas. The main difference is the addition of the transition shades. I say if you have the old Comfort Zone, just save your money unless you desperately need the transition shades.

As to be expected, not much difference between the old and the new.

wet n wild Silk Finish Lipsticks

The Silk Finish lipsticks are standard lipsticks with a glossy finish. They are perfectly good lipsticks to have around. The pigmentation is great. Secret Muse is calling my name.

wet n wild coloricon Eyeshadow Quads

Some of these eyeshadows used to be eyeshadow trios, but wet n wild has added transition shades and reformulated the shades. The other palettes are brand new shades.

Silent Treatment

This palette has been reformulated, with an added transition shade. I do not see much difference between the old and new, besides the added transition shade.

wet n wild coloricon Glitter Singles

The last of the new wet n wild products for 2018 are the odd glitter singles. I have never understood the glitter singles line. I consider them to be for special occasions only, and by that I mean Halloween. I have heard these described time and time again as Vaseline with glitter mixed in. I can say that after swatching these, the formula is too thick and dry to be Vaseline. Sticking my finger in the pan felt more like sticking my finger into a jar of plain glitter, but with a hint of something else added that makes them spreadable. Some of the shades are new, while others they kept from the old line. They have updated the packaging. There were no claims made as to reformulating the old shades. I do have side-by-sides of the old vs the new, and there is no difference between any of them. Definitely pass on the old shades if you already have them. The most mind blowing thing about this collection is the new shades Toasty and Newcomer. Both have an entirely different feel and finish. They feel and look like high-quality creme eyeshadows, nothing like the other glitter singles! I think that wet n wild should have reformulated all of the glitter singles to be like Toasty and Newcomer, or just have scrapped the line entirely. You cannot tell me this line is super popular and in demand.
