Review: Wet n Wild Here’s to the Wild Ones Fall 2015 Collection

Finally found this new fall collection by one of my favorite drugstore brands, Wet n Wild! I trolled all my local drugstores until I found it ( you fellow beauty addicts know what I mean!) and my patience (obsessiveness) certainly paid off—it’s gorgeous!

I got four of the LE Megalast lipsticks and the eyeshadow palette that I thought would look best with my green eyes. Ladies and germs…we have five winners right here!

Here’s the eyeshadow palette, in The Gal-lery Next Door. It has a good mix of muted and more sparkly purples, which I liked because it’s versatile enough for work or the club.

Look at that eyelid shade! So pretty. I swatched these without primer, on my arm, just to see how they performed without any additional help.

As you can see, minus primer they don’t seem as vibrant, but I expected that. Just use any eye primer under them and they live up to their true potential. Here they are on my eyes, again without primer:

The true shining stars here are, of course, the lipsticks. Wet n Wild’s lipsticks are my favorite from the drugstore and possibly of any lipsticks, and these did not disappoint.

Can….you….even….? Look at those colors! From left to right, we have Celeb Sighting, a neon orange-red, Vintage Vibe, a berry purple, Photobomb, a rusty brown that made me go ham with love, and Coffee Buzz, an extremely dark and extremely unique color–it’s a blackened plum with a lot of brown in it. My inner Goth practically cried with love for these. They have a satin-matte finish but go on so creamily.

Here’s Celeb Sighting, one of my faves, below:

Here is Vintage Vibe, below. I thought that the permanent shade Sugarplum Fairy would be a dupe for it, but this one is more purple and darker.

1217

Here is another favorite, Photobomb, below. It’s such a weird but wonderful color.

And lastly here is the glorious Coffee Buzz.

The only problem here is that they’re limited edition! Wet n Wild always kills it with their fall collections, and this one is no exception.

Review: ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

AHHHH I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO EXCITED FOR A REVIEW BEFORE!! Or so excited for a product. I sat on the ColourPop website for six agonizing hours, trying to get nine of their new Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks into my cart, and I finally succeeded. Without further ado, I present the glorious new lip offerings from ColourPop.

I got Trap, Donut, Drive-in, Tulle, Succulent, Creeper, Zipper, Avenue, and LAX, and oh boy are they gorgeous!

That’s taken in natural light, so the arm swatches are very color-accurate.

I also did lip swatches for my lovely readers. 🙂

Trap is a pale gray-mauve nude, which is identical to Lime Crime’s Cashmere.

Donut is that perfect 60’s coral pink—I loved this one!

Drive-in, a bright magenta-purple, was another favorite!

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Tulle

This is Tulle, a reddened nude brown/plum color. It’s a bit hard to describe, but it’s a lovely color! I could see this being a great nude for women of color or a sultry fall shade for pale chicks.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Succulent

This beauty right here is Succulent, a neon orange-red. OMG.OMG. God-tier lipstick right here!

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Creeper

This little gem is Creeper, a true Hollywood red. Gorgeous.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Zipper

Zipper is a darker purple, fun and unique. I will say that this is the only one that went on a little patchier.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Avenue...can you tell my lips are killing me?

Avenue is a dark, warm-toned brick red (and a dupe for Lime Crime’s Wicked.)

ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in LAX

Lastly is the very dark, very vampy LAX, an extremely blackened cherry color.

My lips were killing me after all those swatches! It was worth it, however, because I have found my new favorite liquid lipsticks. These are some utterly gorgeous, very pigmented, very matte lipsticks that are so, so worth the mere $6 that they cost. I love the smaller doe-foot applicator and I love how with only one coat, you get in-your-face color and one heck of a matte finish–it’s like suede! I think these are my favorite product yet from ColourPop! 🙂
