Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette

Happy Monday loves!

I’m changing things up this week since I’ve still got my gel nails on! This has been an over due eye shadow palette review that I completely forgot about! Back in Christmas season, CVS had a Wet n Wild palette kit which included an eye shadow palette, an eye primer, and an eyeliner. This has been in my makeup storage for quite some time and forgot about it. The only reason I remembered it was because I was wearing a green top and wanted to go for a green look, and I found the palette hiding. This palette has 6 shades, and is called Comfort Zone.

There’s 2 sets of shadow shades: a rosey taupe set and an emerald green set.

The Rosey Taupe Set:

 

  1. A light golden shimmery brow bone color. I use this for the brow bone and also sometimes in the inner corner for a pop of color!
  2. A rosey eyelid shade: This usually my go to eyelid color when I want a rosey pink look. I love how its light and actually very buildable.
  3. A medium bronze crease shade: I wish the picture would do the color justice! It’s a medium bronze with ย metallic shimmer. I sometimes use this as an eyelid shade for the days I want a basic bronze look
  4. A darker brown definer shade: This is probably one of the darkest shade in this palette! It has a burgandy reddish glitter to it. I love using this as an eyeliner for those days I don’t want to use a gel or liquid liner.

The Emerald shades:

I’ve read that people who use an emerald shade for brown eyes makes the eyes pop. So I love this part of the palette!

  • A. a bronze browbone: Again I use this for mostly the inner eye. It’s such a pretty bronze taupe shimmer.
  • B. a spring green eyelid: This is actually my favorite color from the whole palette. It’s a pretty shimmery green that is buildable. It looks really pretty on top of the Revlon ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow in Pistachio.
  • C. a grayish brown with a shimmery top crease. It’s a bit harder to blend in compared to the others.
  • D. a red brown with a blue-teal duochrome and frosty top. I love this is shade as well just because it’s so different!

There you have it loves! My very first Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palette Review. What do you guys think?!

 

Red Flames Mani Mondays

Happy 2017 my loves! I hope you all had a safe and wonderful New Years Day. I really do hope that 2017 brings everyone happiness!

Welcome to my very first blog post of 2017. You can definitely expect many more blog posts this year.

Frankly, I don’t know the name of the red polish that I used except that it was in the Wet n Wild Holiday Nail Set. It’s a creamy red that works perfectly for the holiday season. As for the gold flickers of glitter, that was from the CoverGirl Hunger Games line.

What do you guys think? Here goes to a prosperous 2017!

Weekend Splurges

Merry Christmas Eve loves!

I hope everyone has a great Christmas Eve and enjoy it to the fullest!

I know I’m glad I finished finals and did great in my classes so this weekend I splurged a bit more on my makeup junkie-ness more than I planned. This whole month has a been a bit too much on the makeup purchases but who could resist right?!

This weekend, I made a stop at Ulta, and CVS. I feel like I go to CVS every few days to see if more clearance products come out. To my surprise, the beauty clearance sale also covers hair care!

I got the Salon Grafix Healthy Hair Nutrition Conditioning Cleanser in Citrus Creme. This was originally $8 but I got it for $2.50! I really advise you guys to look around the beauty, hair care, and bath and body area of the store. You have no idea how many goodies you can find.

I saw this new Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette and took forever to chose what shade I wanted! So many possibilities! I opted to get the shade “Floral Values 393A”. It’s very feminine and soft. It comes with a base color, the browbone, the definer, the eyelid and the crease. I have a feeling that they might start discontinuing the original trio eyeshadow palettes but I could be wrong. I only paid $3.99 for these suckers!

The last thing I got from CVS this week (and hopefully the last!) is the Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Bronzer in Medium Skin. This is my first time actually buying a bronzer so I’m excited on trying this out! It’s original price was 14.99 but it was on 75% so I only paid about $3.15!

I later went to Ulta and I had one of those coupons that were Buy more than $10 and get $5 off, so I went off to the hunt! :p I got one of the most talked about product on the web which was the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Milk”. I use this mostly when I want my shadows to pop.

This winter has been pretty harsh here in California and I don’t think people notice how bad the cold weather effects their skin! Especially their lips! I heard that the Sally Hansen Peptide Lip Smoother was on clearance but alas, I could not find it. Although I did find it at Ulta! I’m excited to try this especially at night when it’s the coldest.

As I was already paying at the cashier’s, I still did’t have enough to get the discount so I grabbed the closest and cheapest thing. haha I did get the Ulta Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel Sanitizer in “Holiday Cheer”.

So at the end, I only paid $6.59 which is not bad at all!!

Have you guys found any new products that you tried and loved? Let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

Twisted Tuesday

I always heard bad things about the Wet ‘n Wild nail polishes but it was on sale so I figured hey! let me buy and try it out. worst case scenerio if I don’t like it I could just return it or exchange it. I ended up getting the Wet ‘n Wild Megalast in Candy-licious 209C. I love it!

Its a bubble gum pink and is very vibrant. It doesn’t chip as bad as some of the other brands.

What I love most about this nail polish is the brush! The brush is called ManiCurve Pro Brush, its pretty big so that just one swipe could cover the whole nail. Who wouldn’t love that?!
