Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Silent Treatment
TRACYwashere 4/25/2011 8:48:00 PM
I heard such good reviews I knew I wanted to try this trio. I wasn't too sure about the browbone color, it looked too peachy. But it doesn't really show up too much on my eye. The crease color is nice & dark, but be sure you don't use too much! The eyelid color is really pretty. Its a taupe that is kind of purple looking on me. I think this is going to be my favorite out of the new wnw trios! EDIT: I still love this trio but I found the eyelid color a little too light...I add an Ulta eye shadow called Twilight (which is a more purple taupe) when I wear this. I like how the colors look together!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - I'm Getting Sunburned
TRACYwashere 4/25/2011 8:43:00 PM
I love all the shades in this trio, a light pink, dark brown, and bronzey gold. But when I put them together... It didn't look too good. I didn't apply as WnW recommends. So I need to work out how to wear these together... The pink is pigmented & very frosty. The dark brown is insanely pigmented. I put too much on my brush & ended up with enough to cover both my eyes with it! The bronze/gold color is my favorite. True golds don't usually work on me, but this one looks nice because it's more of a bronze. Overall, I think this palette is a good deal!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"
TRACYwashere 4/13/2011 6:19:00 PM
I saw this a few times, unsure if I should get it. I passed, figuring someone who really wanted it would get a chance to get one. But the reviews kept coming, saying great things about this palette. So I next time I saw one I bought it! I Love the left side. It has warm, coppery browns. The right side I'm not too crazy about. I don't like the mac club/TF label wh*ore dupe too much. It doesn't look too good on me & I can only use it sparingly. I'm also not loving the green color. I looks lighter and gold-er when I wear it... But overall I reach for this more than I thought I would! Great palette at a great price!
I have this in two colors: Black & Gunmetal. The gunmetal was more disappointing as an eyeliner because it is SO sheer! I have to layer & layer for it to show up. It didn't really show up on my waterline at all! It works a lot better as a base or cream eye shadow. I use an elf eye shadow brush & the pigment is better & it lasts a long time. The black I use a lot more. I like it but it is kind of sheer.. When I put it on my eyelid I have to used 2 layers or top off with black eye shadow. It doesn't work as good as the WnW creme liner for the top lid, but this ELF liner lasts the longest on my waterline! (I top it off with black shadow for more lasting power & so it doesn't smear so easy.) So far I've only tried 3 cream/gel liners & this one is the most inexpensive. I like it and will buy again!
Nails -Wet 'n' Wild - FastDry - Party of Five Glitters

I love this polish over black!!! I mostly see the red glitter pieces, the green, & silver. The other two don't stand out as much. My nails chip with this polish, but with a clear coat on top it lasts quite awhile for me!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - I'm Feeling Retro
TRACYwashere 3/8/2011 2:46:00 PM
I didn't love this trio. The white color is just like a sheer white glitter. I don't really see myself ever using that. The pink/fuchsia color is surprisingly sheer & takes a lot to build it up. This could be good for because that can make it more wearable for people.. The blue is actually really pretty and shows up well. I like one color out of the three. I won't buy again but I will try other trios!
This is also a review 8pc Deluxe travel Brush Set (see picture). When I saw this at Target I thought, I'd get this & I won't need any more brushes! But I was wrong. The eye shadow brushes hurt, they are so scratchy. The big fluffy blue brush sheds like crazzzy. I do like the lip brush. But this is not worth the money for one brush.
What can I say about this palette? I love it! All of the colors appeal to me, the colors show up well and last quite awhile. Plus it's reasonably priced! What's not to like? I found it at Walgreens, & I didn't expect to find it because these palettes are new & everyone's on the hunt for them. I almost fainted right there in the aisle from the shock of finding all 3 of them xD So when I saw it I had to get it! If you like blue eye shadows you'll love this palette! :)
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Holiday 2010 LE Night Elf eyeshadow palette

The reason this palette caught my eye was because of the red. It's hard to find a nice red eye shadow that doesn't break the bank. I used the silver, red & black to make a dramatic smokey eye. Love it. I actually don't love the Mac club & TF label wh*re dupe because I don't look good in the color! The formulas nice, the color just doesn't work on me. Overall, if you find this palette & like the colors get it!
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow in Tease
TRACYwashere 1/5/2011 12:59:00 AM
I saw this at Big Lots for $1.50. So I had my mom buy it for me to put in my xmas stocking. L.A. colors is very hit or miss, so I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this palette. I put on TFSI, then NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk & WOW! The blue has crazy pigment! It is so bright! So is the pink (Also the pink does stain!) The green is pretty pigmented also. The gold & orange colors are more sheer. I don't mind too much. That makes them more wearable for me. Overall, I can't find much wrong with this palette!
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - Profusion-Color Me Glow 12 Shades eyeshadow

I got these at walgreens for 99 cents. I like how all the eye shadows are shimmery! Good color pay off, with a primer the shadows last, & it's affordable! The only cons are Profusion is pretty hard to find & the packaging can be a little difficult to open. I bought 3 & love them! I'd buy again if I find them!

I notice my lips were getting chapped more & I had almost no chap-stick, nothing to moisturize my lips with. My sister bought this for my for xmas & I love it! I think you get a good amount of product for $7. I like how the strawberry scent is soft, subtle. This works for me & I'd buy again!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black
TRACYwashere 12/31/2010 9:17:00 PM
This is just about as good as my L'oreal HIP gel liner. Except the L'oreal one's container is glass & a million times nicer! I like this product but want better packaging! This liner goes on nice & dark. Its a dryer formula but it doesn't tug or anything. It lasts quite a while but at the end of the day is kind of faded &.. . idk. smeared looking? But it's not bad. This isn't that long lasting on the waterline though! Great for the eyelid, okay for the waterline.. Its on par with a more pricey liner which is impressive! I'm not sure if I would buy again! Partly to the packaging, & partly because mine is drying out... I've had it for awhile but I haven't left the cap off or anything.. Also this liner is kind of hard to find!
This is a great idea. A travel palette with 4 eye shadows & a lip/cheek color. Unfortunately the quality is lacking. I find the convertible color (which I have only tried on my lips) to be very... greasy. It is a very pretty pink though. The eye shadows have also missed the mark. The beige color & the pink are very sheer. The blue (which is matte) shows up but does show up patchy. I haven't tried the back color yet. It had the potential to be good value but I wouldn't buy again.
When this first came out I saw it & thought it was pretty but I didn't wear neutrals enough to justify buying it. But lately I've been getting into tamer, more natural looks. The top row is nice, all matte. There's a white, light brown & dark brown. The second row is more frosty, shimmery. There's a pretty champagne color, a gorgeous bronzey brown, & a darker brown. The last row of colors has one really shimmery color (with some fall out) but it's still a wearable champagne color with gold glitter. There's also a true gold & a dark brown. I love this palette a lot & reach for it more than I thought I would! The only con is that it's pretty pricey... But I would repurchase!
