Looking at the reviews it's hard to believe it's the same product. I have oily skin that always feels a bit moist or tacky to the touch. For me, this moisturizer was light-weight and absorbent. After applying my skin is pleasantly dry and stays shine-free longer. The only thing I dislike is the odd chemical smell of it, otherwise it works great for me!
Surprisingly this cream has really improved my oily, acne-prone skin. It's very matte when applied, not at all shiny or greasy, and provides a smooth base for my mineral makeup. My only complaint is that the container is huge (16oz)! I think 6-8oz would be more manageable. Still, at less than a dollar an ounce the price is quite reasonable, and the product itself is fantastic.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Shadow - #194 Iced Out

Iced out is a shimmery white with a touch of glitter. It blends easily, and I had no creasing whatsoever. I definitely will try the other colors!
Geode is the color Urban Decay's Lust really should be (on the website it looks lovely, but in real life it's a dull purple-grey!) No creasing and minimal fading in 90 degree heat. A beautiful color.
Eye Shadow -Aveda - Shadow Plus Vitamins in Insight
seratonin 8/9/2004 10:06:00 PM
Tried out this color today when I went to Aveda (it wore very nicely by the way, no creasing). However, when I went to buy it not only was the store out, but I was told that the color had been discontinued! The MA advised me to check Aveda salons because they tend to have less turnover on makeup. So if you see Insight, buy up!
The color I have is Sazzy Glimmer (seriously). In the bottle it's a fantastic shimmery fushia, but on my nail it seems sort of dull. I had to use three coats before the polish covered completely (normally I only do two coats). It has lasted nicely without chipping. It's not bad nailpolish by any means, I just prefer the vibrant colors of Urban Decay.
Popsie gives your lips an "I just ate a cherry popsicle" kind of look. The gloss is quite thick and lasts well enough. I really wish Pop Beauty had made some effort to put an applicator on the tube, I not thrilled about getting my fingers sticky. The scent and flavor remind me of strawberry chapstick. It's an okay lip gloss but not remarkable.
I have 716 and 662, they're both quite wonderful and longlasting for such a low price. I've used 662 as an eyeliner (it about the same color as Urban Decay's Big Bang), and it works quite well.
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaBrilliance lipgloss-#591
seratonin 7/14/2004 4:11:00 AM
I bought this thinking it looked very similar to a Sugar lipstick/gloss (and $17 cheaper!) However, it goes on clear from what I could tell, and you have to apply it several times to get an even spread of glitter. The effect is still rather nice; irridescent orange and green sparkles.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Blush- Naive [DISCONTINUED]
seratonin 7/14/2004 4:06:00 AM
I have very pale skin and it seems like I have to put a ton of this blush on to even see it. Aside from that, it is a very natural, pretty color.
I have mixed feelings. Sometimes this mask seems to shrink pores and dry up pimples, but most of the time it just leaves my face very very red. I really think it has to do with the consistency and wish Burt's would give some guidance as to what proportion of water/mask to use.
I must say, I was originally surprised at how small it was. I had thought that if something were to be used as a blush it would be a bit larger than an eyeshadow, but...Solar Slammin is still a (surprisingly) versatile coppery-pink color. I've managed to keep it from creasing by applying it over Big Bang (Urban Decay) eyeshadow. The colors complement each other very well, and neither budged after a day of wind and sun.

A bright metallic green that lasts all day. It could also work as a mascara. Wonderful product and color!
Eye Shadow -Christian Dior - 5 Couleur - Rose Gipsy 840

I love the colors, love the blendability, love the staying power. The rumors are true, Dior eyeshadow is the best!
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - Delusional Eye Shadow Quartet

Like everyone else has said the colors are really pretty. I have to add that "soul" (the pewter shade) is super intense! One light swipe lasts all day with no fading.
