One of my favorite brands from the Drugstore is Wet n Wild. I love nearly all of their products! Wet n Wild is so affordable it's one of the go to brands to try something new. I'm an advocate of buying cosmetics on sale - places like Walgreens & CVS often have bogo sales and places like Target, Meijer, & Walmart are cheaper - but Wet n Wild prices are already very, very affordable.
This is part of my collection of Wet n Wild - these are my favorites! Wet n Wild has 4 blushes but I only have two. I can't, for the life of me, find the other two! When I find one of them it's the last one & it's usually all crushed up & powdery. But these colors in Pearlescent Pink & Mellow Mauve are really pretty & both natural looking.
Mellow Mauve is a rich pink-wine color that is buildable from a sheer flush to a deeper color. It is matte & deep - there's no glitter & highly pigmented! A little will go a long way so be sure to tap off your brush (don't be so heavy handed!) For me it comes off more of a true wine color but I've seen it on others where is more peachy. I'm on the search for a peachy blush but this isn't it for me. Pearlescent pink has a little bit of shimmer but I find it wears off & a really sheer true pink color. If you want a lighter flushed color Pearlescent pink is it. The other shades available are Heather Silk & Berry Shimmer - can't wait til I get my hands on them!
There's a newer collection by Fergie for Wet n Wild called the Center Stage Collection. This collection features these Shimmer Palettes (the bigger marbleized guys there at the top). There are three colors - Carnival in Rio, Rose Golden Goddess, & Rose Champagne Glow. The two featured here are Rose Champagne Glow & Rose Gold Goddess.
I use the Rose Champagne nearly everyday as a highlight on my cheek bones & really lucked out that my palette has a great big part with only the light pink color. Sometimes I use that as a highlight on my brow bone. Rose Champagne Glow is really sheer & a pinky-white highlight. The other two shades on the other had are really shimmer bronzers. I'm a bit intimidated by Carnival in Rio which I think might be better for darker skin tones but I really want to try a bronzy look with Rose Golden Goddess. The swatches are just gorgeous!
Not part of the Fergie Collection are these Color Icon Trios & these 8 pan Color Icon Palettes. There are beautiful shades that go together to create bright or neutral looks. I am all about a neutral eye and my favorite trios are Walking on Eggshells, Sweet as Candy, & Silent treatment. My favorite palette is the neutral one in Comfort Zone. I can't wait for the release of more trios in July! They are going to be brighter shades but I still can't wait!
To make the shadow last longer I use the eyelid primer from the Fergie collection. I've never tried an eyeshadow primer before but this one seems to do the trick! My shadow lasts aallll day. No lie! Like I said Wet n Wild is so affordable - I'm avoiding the word cheap, because it's such good quality - that if you want to try something you should go for it.
So there you have it! All my favorite products from Wet n Wild. Whenever I pass by the display I just have to check it out to see if I want to pick up anything else. With prices from $0.99 to $5.99 + bogo sales, it's just perfect!
