Over the past 10 months I’ve been working to perfect my makeup routine. I’m so proud of my progress. When I officially learn how to snatch this face , I’ll post pictures of just how much progress I’ve made. Despite my improvements I still have a long way to go before I’m really sculpting this face and winging out this eye like the pros.
In the meantime, I’m trying out products to determine what looks best on me and I’m having so much fun playing with eyeshadow. From high end to drug store brands I love them all.
I must admit I’m super excited when the drug store brands have a high color pay off and that was the case in the three Wet n Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Trios I recently picked up from Rite Aid. Here’s my review of each palette starting with the newest one from Wet N Wild ‘s limited edition fall collection.
“Plaid to the Bone”
Pros: This palette is small but packs a big punch. The shades are really pigmented.
The green and brown shades are both frost finishes which I love and the blue is a flat matte. I love that this palette wasn’t all mattes or shimmer shades.
I’ve worn the brown shimmery shade on my lid and added the green to my inner tear ducts.
Cons: The blue matte shade was really tough to work with. It wasn’t easy to apply or blend. Moving forward I would only use the blue for the outer corner of my eye.
Will I Buy Again: For the price alone, I think it’s worth repurchasing. Also, the green is absolutely beautiful and very compatible to a green frost I have from MAC.
The other two are from the 2015 Hollywood Holiday collection, so it may be tough to get your hands on them in stores , but you can order them both online HERE.
Pros: I was really surprised by the color pay off with this palette especially the pearl white shade. Talk about totally impressed. I can only imagine how pigmented it will look once I use a wet brush to apply the shadow. In this palette this glitter is hinted not saturated. This trios could help you achieve a smokey eye and who doesn’t love a smokey eye? And while similar I can definitely tell a clear difference between the silver and dark grey
Cons: The shadows are sort of thin. I would definitely have to apply build the shadow to get my desired look, which requires me to use more product. More products means Jamiese Monét is spending more money on additional palettes.
Will I Buy Again: Definitely! The pros outweigh the cons in my book.
“Bust a Wrap”
Pros: If you’re looking for glitter and tons of shimmer this collection is for you. The palette features three shadows that are loaded with sparkle.
Cons: There’s always one shade in a palette that doesn’t act right. The silver-white shade was super powdery and thin. It was hard to work with and manipulate. Also the blue and the black shades look just a like. I had really high hopes for the blue. It’s so pretty, but when swatched it lays flat.
Will I Buy Again: I found it to be too similar to “Wrapper’s Delight.”!At this point I wouldn’t buy again unless I find a new use for it.
