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!

1182

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.

1194

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: New Wet n Wild products for 2015 (pic heavy!)

Today I just wanted to share my thoughts and my swatches of some of the new Wet n Wild 2015 makeup. I tried to pick up a variety of different products to show you guys, to give you an idea of what this new collection is like. There are some hits and misses here, and I hope my swatches and mini reviews are helpful!

173

First up, I thought I’d talk about the two items that I was most excited about—the Coverall Primer and the Correcting Palette.

177

The primer looks and feels like a moisturizer—it’s lightweight and hydrating, and it really does help my makeup go on smoothly. It brightens my skin and I feel like it does extend the wear-time of my foundation.

175

I was wondering if the Correcting Palette would be sort of a gimmicky product, and I was half-right—the green and yellow shades are great for correcting redness and dark circles, but the purple shade is way too, well, purple to use on my fair skin without looking like I got kissed by a crayon, and the white highlighter shade is a bit too glittery for my taste. The primer and the correcting palette come together in a set, and I still think the set is worth getting, however!

I’ve had several people ask me about the Come Correct Celebrity Concealer, but alas, this was the one product I was really let down by.

As you can hopefully tell from my swatches, this concealer is very yellow, very thick, and way too dark for my skintone even though I got the lightest shade, called Fair. It’s got an almost oily consistency, and although it does provide heavy coverage, it looked very noticeable and unnatural on my skin. It was very sticky and hard to blend, also. It’s so dark that I would be more likely to use it for contouring instead of highlighting! I would definitely pass on this.

However, I do really like the new Max Volume Plus mascara! It’s like a less clumpy version of L’Oreal’s Miss Manga! The wand is great—it has these tiny comb-like bristles, and it’s small enough to use on your bottom lashes with ease. I’m wearing it in all of the pictures below.

Look at this eyeshadow palette! Isn’t it pretty? It’s part of the new Fergie Centerstage Collection by Wet n Wild, and it’s called Camouflage Couture. It has a good mix of olive, silver, and jade green shades, which are soft and shimmery.

172

Next up, we have these gorgeous new blushes. I picked up all three shades. There’s a warm coral with gold shimmer and red tones, a soft salmon with a satin finish, and a bright matte bubblegum pink. These are super pigmented!

This one is called Brush With Brilliance—Nars Orgasm dupe?

Here are swatches of the blushes:

I was so excited to see that Wet n Wild also has a new lipstick line out. My Walgreens didn’t have all the shades, but I got three of the ones that they did have. I got a cool toned mauvey pink, called “Will You Be With Me?”, a neon orange-red with both coral and pink tones in it called “What’s Up, Doc?”, and a deep burgundy called “Dark Wine.”

Swatches of the blushes and the lipsticks:

I also did full-on lip swatches. Here is “Will You Be With Me?” Although it’s a lovely shade, it’s way too cool toned and pale for me, and washed me out bigtime. Definitely exfoliate your lips before wearing this one!

117

Next, here is the bombtastic “What’s Up, Doc?” I loved this one! Super bright and unique shade!

130

Lastly, here is “Dark Wine.” It applied the creamiest of the three.

Whew! I know that was a ton of swatches! I liked most of these new products, with the exception of the concealer. The blushes and the lipsticks are my favorites, but everything is well worth the price!
