Wet n Wild products hold a special place in my heart, as the first couple makeup products that I purchased when I started getting into makeup came from this brand…and many of them are still favorites of mine today! This year they’ve brought out so many new things and I was able to try out several of them. I can’t wait to share the hits and misses with you today! Let’s get right to it. 🙂
These are limited edition, but I believe you can still find them in store. From left to right I have the colors Jingle Belle, Sugar Plums, and Nightingale. I am typically not a fan of different colored liquid liners, but it’s fun to have some in your collection to play around with on occasion. As you can see from the swatches, the liners are very pigmented! I tried these years ago, when I first got into makeup, and didn’t like it at all. It was so sheer and hard to apply. But these are a whole different story! I was able to apply these fairly easily and while you have to be careful to not get a ‘streaky’ look in your liner, it does show up true to color on your eyes. The wear time for them is good, too. Last all day for me, though I don’t have watery eyes, typically. I will say, though, that the black shade — Jingle Belle — I did notice the glitter falling onto my cheeks by the end of the day. If you can still find these, though, I would say the bright colors would be fun to try.
Wet n Wild Brushes
Powder Brush — $2.99 — This brush is so fluffy and soft! It’s one of the smaller brushes I own for a powder brush (maybe I just prefer large ones) but it gets the job done just fine. And so soft!
Small Stipple Brush — $2.99 — This is the perfect brush to use to apply cream products! I enjoyed using this for cream blush and cream highlight, it applied it beautifully.
Large Concealer Brush — $0.99 — I personally never like flat brushes for concealer, so this one doesn’t get much use from me. But the bristles are still nice and soft, if you like this type of brush.
Small Concealer Brush — $0.99 — I actually love to use this brush to apply my inner corner highlight. It gets right in there and lays down the color beautifully. And considering that Wet n Wild is often on sale at local drugstores, I highly recommend you get this brush!
Fan Brush — $2.99 — I haven’t found a fan brush that I like, because they seem to be way too thin. And this brush is no exception. It’s nicer than the one I own from ELF, but still not my preferred method for applying highlight. Nothing against the brush, though, it’s on-par with the other brushes in this collection.
If you haven’t been able to guess yet…I highly recommend this line of brushes. They’re so affordable and the bristles feel great! I went out a purchased the contour brush and large eyeshadow brush on my own, and like them, too! So affordable!
As always, I swatch each color twice on my arm without any type of primer underneath them.
These eyeshadows are limited edition, but I still find them on Wet n Wild’s website, so if you like what you see here, you should still be able to get them.
Bust A Wrap — As you can see from the swatches, there really isn’t much different between the middle navy-blue color and the black in the palette. And that sparkly silver shade is very textured and rough. It can work, but I highly recommend you lay down a tacky base color (like a glitter glue) to help the silver glitter shadow stay in place and really give you the color you see in the pan.
Bohemian Wrapsody — All the colors in this palette have that really rough texture to them, which is disappointing, but that top yellow-shimmer shade is just a total dud, in my opinion. It’s hard to get it to show up, even with a primer underneath. The brown and taupe shade are really pretty and totally workable, but still have that rough feel to them, so they’re not my favorite to reach for.
Wrapper’s Delight — This palette is the only one that most resembles the pigmentation and quality of other ColorIcon palettes from Wet n Wild. That top blue-silver shade is very smooth and shows up great in swatches and on the lid. The bottom gray shade is a bit rough-feeling, but not as bad as the other palettes above. If you want a silvery-smokey eye look, this is the palette I would recommend you try out.
Wet n Wild has a few different lines of nail polish, and they’ve introduced a new line this year with their 1 Step Wonder Gel. I received the polishes 719A Condensed Milk, 731A Pretty Peas, 727A Bye Feluschia!, and 733A Left Marooned. What fun names, right! I really love this formula and am eager to try out some more colors in this line. Some of the colors require more than two coats — such as Bye Feluschia! — but it’s not too hard to build up. I typically still use a base coat and top coat when I use these polishes (out of habit and because I am very hard on my nails), but I’ve also worn them without either of those and am impressed with the lasting power of these polishes all by themselves.
I wore Left Marooned for almost three months straight, I loved it so much. Without a base coat or a top coat, these won’t chip for around 3-5 days, depending. Because they have a thin consistency, they also don’t ‘peel’ off of your nails like a typical polish, which helps them to last a while. The price is more expensive then their other nail polishes, but I still think they’re worth it! I can’t wait to get some more colors!
So, just for a quick recap, the brushes and nail polishes were a big hit for me, the liners were really nice, and the palettes were more of a miss for me. Have you tried any of these products yet? Tell me if you have and what you think of them. And if you’ve tried, and love, a new product that I haven’t mentioned, let me know so I can go pick it up! 😀
