One of the reason I keep coming back to Wet 'n Wild products is the price and the quality. This eyeliner great, it goes on very black and clean. Once it's on, it isn't going anywhere.
I love all things Wet 'n Wild and this lipstick doesn't disappoint. It is a really great nude, that I have worn with and without gloss. It doesn't dry out my lips and goes on smooth.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Powder- Sand Storm
FlannyCupcake 1/2/2013 3:05:00 PM
I have been using more and more matte powders and I like they way they were working, but this is by far my favorite. It has lasting power and hides my pores, the most important thing I look for in powder. my only cons are the packing and no applicator. Other then that I would not only repurchse I would also recommend this product.
This is my first Rimmel foundation I have purchased and I am really pleased with this one so far. The formula is thicker then I thought and I wasn't sure if I liked it, but I really do. It covers and and blends perfectly to my skin tone. It does have a slight floral scent to it, but it's not over powering. Dare I say I might actually fall in love with this one? To early to tell, but I can't think of one negitive about this one.
Styling Products -John Frieda - Frizz-Ease Dream Curls
FlannyCupcake 6/8/2011 3:06:00 PM
I really like this product. It's cheap and easy to find at most stores. I liked it even more with a $2 coupon I had. :) When I used this product I used it with a curling creme (Coloresse from Sally's) and together the end results were great. I have naturally curly/wavy hair that tends to fizz if I don't add product to it, it did control the frizz giving me really nice curls. I didn't get a crunch feeling after using this, I also let me hair air dry.
Moisturizers -Johnson & Johnson - Purpose Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion
FlannyCupcake 5/20/2011 12:55:00 PM
This was just OK. I'm girly and I like my products to smell perfumey and this doesn't. As far as moisturizing, it's middle of the road. The best part is the pump. I won't be rushing off to purchase this ever again.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel
FlannyCupcake 5/20/2011 12:51:00 PM
With the help of fellow MUA member synergie I was able to purchase awesome little bath towel at a local Koren market. (I also had a yummy dinner to boot.) This towel ROCKS. It's rougher then your average loofa and the results are fantastic. My skin hasn't been as soft, especially my legs, with any other product I've used. I also use this on my feet too and this could help the "life" of your pedicure to last longer. This was worth ever penny. I even bought one for my husband and he really likes it too. One of the best kept secrets.
I've been purchasing this product on and off for over 15 years and I always come back to it. I recently purchased this again and to my surprise the texture has changed and so has the packing (still a tub)! The texture really lives up to it's name, skin CREAM. It doesn't have the curddle (as a previous post stated) feel to it. If you haven't tried Noxzema in a while give it another try, you might like it.
I was a little worried with the over powering scent of mint (from other reviewers), but actually it reminded me of Wiggley's speariment gum, which I like. It's a light mint scent. The mask is think and green and when it dries it turns bright green. I do feel a slight burn in the cheeks when I've use it, but nothing that would make me stop using it. The directions on the bottle say to leave it on for 15 minutes, but I like to leave it on for 30 minutes. I do apply a thick coat on my face and when it's time to remove I use a wet washcloth and it takes several times and light scrubing to remove. This masks leaves my face feeling really clean and my pores seem to get smaller. I really like the results. Plus the price, $4 at Walgreens. Awesome.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Single in Brulee
FlannyCupcake 4/4/2011 4:37:00 PM
I LOVE this shade. I have used this as a base and to blend out my eyeshadow if I applied with a heavy hand. It has a nice silky texture and very easy to apply. This is a must have netrual to have in stash. I'm not sure what WNW is up to, but their products have really improved. I haven't purchased anything from them recently that I haven't fell in love with.
Fragrances -Lolita Lempicka - L de Lolita Lempicka
FlannyCupcake 3/30/2011 11:38:00 AM
I am sure I am going repeat alot of what others are saying about this unique scent, but I wanted to add my 2 cents. :) I spotted this at TJ Maxx on clearance for $20! I had it in my hand, but put it back, because I never smelled it and I didn't have my phone with me to check what MUA had to say. :D So after reading the comments and the lippies I went back to TJ and bought it. I was lucky too, there was only one left! Anyhoo....onto the review.... At first I wasn't so sure this was a scent. It reminded me ALOT of Angel (and thought I guess I could deal with this), but then the scent sort of changed giving off a sweet lemon scent. THEN it change to a sexy sweet musky scent. It still reminds of Angel, but with a sweeter twist. The bottle is lovely. It's heart shaped light blue, but the top of the bottle has gold ocean themed fish net, star fish in the glass, gold rhinestone L. The spray cap is clear plastic. The package is a nice orange shade with a large L. Overall, I really like this perfume it's not like anything I have worn before, plus the amount I paid for it at TJ, you can't go wrong! **Edit** I bumped up the lippies to 5, because this is now my new favorite scent. I have worn it everyday since I purchased it.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lipstick - Warm Me Up
FlannyCupcake 3/25/2011 12:02:00 PM
I have been hearing a little buzz about this lipstick for a while now. Then last month's Marie Clarie mag, Miley Cyrus was wearing it on the front cover, which is why I bought it. I love the color it's a great netural brown pink. It goes on smooth and doesn't dry out my lips, it's kind of moisturizing. It wears for a long time too at least 2 hours. I'm not too fond of the smell, but that can be easily overlook, due to the awesome color and overall look of my lips.
After many failed attempts to purchase this lipstick I finally got my hands on it. (The stores were always sold out). I LOVE this shade. Love it! I have tried other nude shades and they do nothing for me. With my skin tone, the shade comes off pinky, which looks really nice. I do wear a clear gloss over. It doesn't dry out my lips, which I really like.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Shine City
FlannyCupcake 2/18/2011 11:13:00 AM
Best. (almost clear) Lipgloss. Ever. Shine City shines. ;) This gloss can be worn alone or over lipstick, I prefer wearing over lipstick, it just gives the color of the lippie a nice pop. The packing is high end, the price is middle of the road, but the quality is top notch. From the way it looks in the bottle it has a pink shimmer to it, but once I applied it I didn't notice any color just shine, which really isn't a big deal to me. I also like that the gloss isn't sticky and glides on and leaves my lips really glossy. This one is a must to have in your collection.
I love this stuff! I can't live without a primer and I've found my new favorite one. I have to admit it scaried me a little when I squeezed it out of the container and it was white. Then I applied to my face and instant softness and my face reminds soft for the rest of the day. For $8 and for the amount of product you get it's a great deal. **Edit** At first I loved this stuff, but as time went on the primer has gotten a little runny. It feels heavy on my face and I have to give it time to dry. The outcome it still nice. My foundation and power do look nice when I use this. But as I said the texture changed, which I find to be a little weird, so I've knocked off a few lippies.
