Beauty Review: New Wet n Wild

I have loved Wet n Wild cosmetics since I first started playing with make-up…back in the 80’s.  They are my go-to brand if I want to experiment or perfect a look because of their wallet-friendly prices.

Right now they have so many great things out.  I have purchased and have been using all the things I’m going to talk about so these will be totally honest reviews.  I got all of these products from Walmart, but I’ve seen Wet n Wild at Target and various drugstores too.  Here we go!

MegaCushion Foundation SPF 15, $9

Ever since Clinique discontinued the foundation I had been wearing for 8 years, I have been searching for something similar.  I saw this product and thought I’d give it a try.  It’s basically a foundation soaked sponge in a plastic case.  On top of the inner lid, there is a foam pad that you use to apply it.  The more you press the pad onto the foundation, the heavier the coverage.  At first I was a little unsure of how the foam pad would perform.  It was surprisingly easy to get even coverage with it.  The foundation itself is on the lighter side, so if you need full coverage, this probably isn’t for you.  But it does do a nice job of evening out skin tone.  You just need to have skin in good condition.  I don’t think this would work for really dry or oily skin without a secondary product.  After a day of wearing it at work, I noticed it was a little blotchy.  I wonder if a touch-up would have fixed it…   I’d also love it to come in more colors because I’m not sure I got the best match.

MegaCushion Color Corrector, $6

My eyes are the thing that I fuss about the most.  Since having my first baby, my eyes have taken a beating.  Now that I have a toddler and 5 month old, they are really bad.  I’ve been able to get the bags and puffiness under control, but I haven’t had much luck with the dark circles.  I like the lotion I use every day, but I still need a concealer.  I’ve tried a few but this one seems to work the best for me.  It is the same concept as the foundation, a sponge soaked in make-up that you apply with the accompanying foam pad.  The featured color is peach for dark circles.  They also have green for redness, yellow for dullness and purple for sallowness.  This product really does a nice job of covering up dark circles.  I use it all around my eye and you can see the brightness right away.  It is light but just heavy enough to give good coverage.  This was a very pleasant surprise that I might have to stock up on in case they don’t plan on keeping it around.  Oh, and that foam pad looks pretty easy to clean too.  Can’t be applying make-up with dirty tools!  Comes in

Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette, $5

This palette comes in four color combos (the one featured is called Nude Awakening).  There’s not really much to say about it.  It’s eyeshadow, nothing ground breaking.  It’s just a nice collection of colors to create a bunch of looks for five bucks.  Super easy to throw into your make-up bag for vacation and be all set from day to night.

Color Icon Eyeshadow Single, $0.99

At 99 cents how could I not get it?!  The featured color is called Nutty and I’ve been wearing some form of this shade as my everyday color since college.  It really complements my blue eyes.  Comes in eight colors.

MegaGlo Highlighting Powder, $5

This was another pleasant surprise.  I switched out my everyday blush for this highlighter, Precious Petals, for the summer.  It’s so pretty!  It gives my cheeks that dewy, youthful glow that I need help with right now.  I will definitely be keeping this in stock in my make-up bag.

Color Icon Rainbow Highlighter, $5

It’s called Unicorn Glow.  Does any more really need to be said?!  Ok.  Fine.  I got this because it reminded me of the Physicians color correcting beads.  After I read the package more closely, I realized I wouldn’t be able to use it like that.  It’s a highlighter so I mostly use it on my cheeks for a glow.  But it’s super fun and super pretty.

1 Step WonderGel Nail Color Bundle, $5

This has become my favorite nail polish.  I plan on doing a very in depth review of it but I had to share it now because Wet n Wild offers this bundle on their website for $5!  It’s a great deal and you won’t be sorry if you get it.  And I promise I’ll review it and tell you all my tips for actually getting the polish to last very soon!
