So if you are a regular reader of my blog and Facebook page you know I finally got my hands on some Wet n Wild products. I have always heard great things about their shadows and lip products and not so much about their foundations. So when I found myself in Dunnes Stores Athlone on Saturday I decided to get their Coverall Cream Foundation and give it a try. And at only €4.99 it wasn't going to break the bank.
So after trying it for a few days here's what I thought.
Firstly this is a medium coverage foundation. It will cover most blemishes and dark circles which I really liked.
The bottle has a large nozzle so be careful when squeezing out the foundation as you only need a small amount. It had a beautiful creamy texture which was easy blend in to the face. I used a Real Techniques buffing brush which was perfect for the job.
I did have to use a little concealer around my eyes and on a pretty large spot but otherwise it done a great job giving me a beautiful clear complexion.
As the day wore on I thought my skin looked a little dehydrated. The foundation had settled in my frown lines and my laughter lines around my mouth (see how I don't say wrinkles!!!) but this is nothing that a quick buff with my makeup brush couldn't sort out.
As you can see from below I took a photo at 8.30 am and one at 8.30pm to show you how well the makeup had lasted.
It lasted perfectly throughout the day aside my the little blending from my laughter lines.
I will say though if you have dry skin I don't think this foundation will do you any favours and because it sits in any lines and pores it would be more suitable for younger skin.
It really is perfect for teenagers and ladies in their 20's as it covers brilliantly and lasts all day.
You get 30mls for €4.99 and Wet n Wild is available from selected Dunnes Stores & pharmacies nationwide.
As always...Until Next Time...Be Happy!!!
P.S. If you haven't seen my previous blog about the Aussie Blog Awards go check it out and if you have the time give me a nomination. Cheers
Wet ' n' Wild is the latest cosmetic brand to arrive on our lovely shores from the US of A. I know the name is just terrible but the products themselves are great. And they are all available for under €7 so you are free to experiment with colours and trends without breaking the bank.
I have previously tried their Megalast Nail Polish which applied beautifully and lasted well without chipping for nearly a week. Also the blush has great pigmentation and is long wearing.
But today I am going to review their eye shadow palette and illuminating powder.
Walking on Eggshells is the perfect everyday neutral trio . Each shade is conveniently labelled so even beginners can apply them like a pro.
The browbone shade is a beautiful satin shimmery nude colour. It can be applied as a highlight just under the brow and on the inner corner to really open up your eyes. It is a perfect dupe for MAC's Shroom or Urban Decay's Virgin eyeshadows.
The eyelid shade is a warm peachy nude colour. It applies beautifully and blends out easily. It is a dupe for MAC's Naked Lunch or Urban Decay's Sin eyeshdow.
And lastly Crease. This is a muted golden brown that can be applied lightly or built up to a beautiful dark golden shade. I think it is very like MAC Cork or Urban Decay's Smog eyeshadow.
All three shadows provide great colour payoff, blend easily and have great staying power. All for only €3.49. BARGAIN!!!
Comfort zone has 8 eyeshadows for only €6.49. Again each one is labelled starting with browbone, then eyelid, crease and finally definer. All the colours in this palette are super soft and well pigmented.
Starting on the left hand side!
The Browbone shade is a beautiful peachy gold with a light shimmer. The Eyelid shade is a pinky beige/golden shade. A perfect eyelid shade. The Crease shade is warm antique golden shade and finally the Definer is a dark redish brown. I like to use it with an angled brush as a soft liner along my lash line.
So over to the right side.
The Browbone shadow is a beautiful golden beige with a slight pink undertone. I think this is my favourite shade from the whole palette.
The Eyelid shade is golden olive green.
Next the Crease shade is a very dark mocha shade. It looks slightly black but on the eye is is definitely brown.
And finally the Definer shade is mmmhhh how best to describe this. It is a duo chrome shadow and at first glance I immediately thought of MAC Club. The base is a reddish/brown with a green pearl finish. However when I swatched Club it was more muted compared to the Wet 'n' Wild shadow.
So that is Comfort Zone!!!
And finally the Mega Glow Illuminating Powder in Catwalk Pink. When swirled together this gives a beautiful rose gold toned blush that can be used as a highlighter on your cheekbones, along your collarbone or anywhere you would like a subtle shimmer.
Be warned it is quite shimmery (not glittery though) so if your not a fan of shimmer this isn't the product for you. But overall I liked it. I will use it in summer as a highlight for the tops of my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose and anywhere else I want to highlight.
And that's it. The Wet n Wild range is available from selected Dunnes Stores, Penny's and pharmacies nationwide.
Have any of you tried anything from the Wet 'n' Wild Range?
Until next time...As always...Be Happy!!!
