Current Obsession: Wet N' Wild

Recently while perusing the aisles of the drugstore, I came across the wet n' wild brand, which has been widely talked about in the beauty community. I have never paid much attention to this brand, probably because of the "too good to be true" prices and it's tacky packaging. However, just for fun I picked up a few of their products, fell in love, and have since gone back for more. 

Here is my small but well loved collection of wet n' wild makeup:

1. Mega Last Lip Color - 901B Think Pink
2. Mega Last Lip Color - 903C Just Peachy
3. Color Icon eyeshadow single - Brulee
4.  Color Icon eyeshadow single - Nutty

These lipsticks are completely matte but they are not so drying if you put lipbalm underneath or some gloss on top. I like the matte texture because it doesn't feel like you're wearing a lipstick, and it lasts forever.
I absolutely love the colors of these. They are so vibrant and yet still very wearable. The coral peach shade is almost an exact color dupe for YSLs Rouge Volupte in No 30 that you guys know I'm obsessed with. Obviously, the texture comes nowhere near the YSL, but the color is so pretty and really lifts the face, not to mention it is much longer lasting. The bubblegum pink is really nice as well; it is like a brighter version of creme cup. These are the only colors I found in the collection that I would wear, but I saw online that they do make a nude shade, which I am trying to hunt down.

The only thing I hate about these lipsticks is the packaging. It is as cheap as they come, and not only that, the lipstick does not twist all the way down into the tube so it impossible to pop off the cap without nicking the lipstick.
Other than that, I love these!

I picked two of the neutral eyeshadow shades in the collection, nutty and brulee, and I am obsessed with them both! The quality of these eyeshadows isn't the greatest and can be a bit powdery if applied with a fluffy brush, but for $2, they are well worth it to me.
Brulee is a nice matte skin-toned pinky beige color which is really convenient to wear all over the lid and as a subtle highlight. Nothing that you need to run out and get, but I didn't have a shade like it in my collection so it was well appreciated. Nutty on the other hand, is amazing and I am so seriously in love with it I will probably keep it in my collection forever. It is a dirty brown color with a taupe sheen running through it. To me, it is like a more wearable version of MACs club. It is so pretty on it's own for a natural smokey look and I have also been wearing it in the crease with brulee on the lid on most days. 
I also really enjoy the tiny, bare minimum packaging of these single eyeshadows - they're cute and easy to store and carry.

Overall, I really love this brand. I really want to try out some of their eyeshadow palettes and possibly some more lip products. The collection is small so it is easy to get all the colors that suit you without being overwhelmed. There's nothing that really rivals high end makeup, but nonetheless it is inexpensive and fun to buy and use =)

I also want to thank everyone who has been reading and commenting on my posts. I love blogging and your thoughts are well appreciated!
Hope you had a good weekend =)
