wet n wild Limited Edition Zodiac Collection – Written in the Stars

I must admit that my favorite type of post to create and share is limited edition collections by wet n wild! This time around we have the wet n wild limited edition Zodiac collection. I was able to get all of the pieces to swatch and review for you. I am not someone that has ever gotten into the world of astrology, but I am intrigued by the concept as well as this collection. As with any wet n wild release or collection, there is always a hiccup somewhere along the line. I seem to never get the emailed newsletters, so I kept watching out for the release myself. A few hours after I purchased the collection, I did receive the email and it stated that you got a free makeup bag with every $20 purchase. I was highly perturbed because I was not aware of this, and my checkout process never gave me the option to select the bag. I messaged customer service and they only reached out to me once to say that they would see if the warehouse could add it to my order. I figured that I got jipped out of the bag, but lo and behold it was in my order. Thanks wet n wild customer service for helping me out! After the minor bump in the road I am ready to explore the collection with you.

The free makeup bag is a faux navy blue velvet material, featuring gold hardware and lettering. The bag itself is fairly spacious. It was able to hold the entire Zodiac collection, minus the loose highlighting powder. The design on the front of the bag displays your zodiac sign and name, and the back side has the wet n wild logo.

wet n wild megaglo Highlighting Bars

The first set of products in the wet n wild limited edition Zodiac collection are four megaglo highlighting bars. The highlighting bar concept is not a new one for wet n wild. The Midnight Mermaid collection featured one bar in the same type of packaging. They also tried a highlighting bar a few years ago with a different package. I am definitely a fan of these bars. I do not think that the formulation is exactly the same as the beloved highlighting powders, but they pack an amazing punch that lasts all day and are just as good. A little goes a long way with these, so try to be light-handed with your brush. In this lineup Fire is a bit too dark for my complexion, but that will not stop me from using it. I am not sure how often a blue highlighter such as Water will fit into my routine. Air and Earth will be the ones that I will get the most use out of. I am enjoying that the 12 zodiac signs are imprinted in the product.

wet n wild color icon Eyeshadows

Join me for a moment as I sit back and appreciate how beautiful these color icon eyeshadows are. Wet n wild has never created an eyeshadow in this format before. If you have ever seen an eyeshadow from Ofra, these are identical in design. The colors in the lineup are gorgeous. As a warm-tone fan I am attracted to each eyeshadow, except for Air. I know that the colors in Air will not fit into my routine often. Fire really stands out from the bunch for me because it reminds me of Naked Heat, which is easily one of my all-time favorite palettes. I do have a complaint about Fire because there is not much variation between the shades. Earth and Water are simply beautiful. I can tell that the formula is the same as all of their eyeshadows that they reformulated for 2018. I say this because they are extremely powdery, yet pigmented. Wet n wild has always been known for their awesome eyeshadow so it blows my mind that they would reformulate it into a powdery, fall-out prone mess. I say if it ain't broke, do not fix it. At least the pigment is there. Some of the lighter shades struggled to produce pigment, such as the whites. All of the shades are super shimmery, so if that is not your cup of tea, you may want to pass on these.

wet n wild megaglo Loose Highlighting Powder in Written in the Stars

Wet n wild has already released a limited edition loose highlighting powder as part of the Goth-o-Graphic collection, and it was nothing short of spectacular. We have been asking ever since then to have wet n wild make some as part of their permanent collection. While they have yet to make our dreams a reality, they at least gave us another limited edition powder. I can tell that the formula of this one is the same as the prior, just in a different shade. Written in the Stars is more of a cool-toned, gentle pink, while the one from the Goth-o-Graphic collection is more of a white gold. I am digging the outside of the packaging and the star-shaped holes. This is another highlighter that you want to be light-handed with. Just the tiniest bit of powder will pack a serious punch on the skin.

wet n wild color icon Lip Glosses

Insert my usual lip gloss rant here. But, seriously, I hate the feel of lip gloss on the lips, and the poor staying power. However, if I have to wear lip gloss, I am all about wet n wild's formula. For the superb price of $2.99 they always show up to the party with a formula that is not too sticky and one that lasts better than others. This collection of 12 glosses really breaks down into three categories. Category one is a clear gloss with super shimmery glitter, category two is a gloss with mid-range pigmentation, and category three is a super pigmented gloss that might as well be a liquid lipstick. Take Aries as an example- I have no idea what black magic that wet n wild used to get that kind of pigment out of a lip gloss, but I am stunned. The majority of the glosses are packed with glitters and shimmers, and the ones that are not have more of a chrome-like sheen. You may wear these alone or over another lip color according to your personal preference. They feature a flat doe-foot applicator. I would say that your best bet here is selecting the glosses that you think you will get the most use out of, rather than buying all 12.

wet n wild Zodiac Collection Bundles

I thought that it would be fun to end my wet n wild limited edition Zodiac collection review with a look at each of the bundles. Wet n wild offered the option to shop via bundles, but you still had to purchase the loose highlighting powder separately. I went ahead and photographed each group so that you can see the hues side-by-side.

In conclusion, the wet n wild limited edition Zodiac collection is definitely worth your money. While you may not feel it necessary to purchase every single piece, you can rest assured that the items you select will be good quality and worthy of being in your stash. My final bit of disappointment comes with the packaging of this collection. I like when the collection comes in a collectible box. This time around the beauty influencers that got sent a PR package got everything in a box, but not us. I was thinking that the bundles would at least, but they did not. I know that it is silly to get bent out of shape over a box, but it makes for nice presentation when I share the products with you all. Did you purchase anything from this collection? What is your zodiac sign? Let's start a discussion in the comments. I am a Sagittarius. I had an exceptional time swatching and reviewing all of the items in this collection for you, and I look forward to the next limited edition collection. Until next time, continue to let your true beauty shine.
