Wet n Wild Lunch in Sao Paulo Palette

wet n wild lunch in sao paulo

Hey lovelies,

So, I was trying to find the California Roll palette from the Silver Lake collection only to discover that most of the Walgreens in my area have started to take the displays down. I was a wee bit crushed. However, Kaily from Someday Sunny must have felt my pain states away and found one and is sending it to me! Seriously, that made my whole day.

The point of me mentioning that is because even though I couldn’t find anymore Silver Lake palettes, I did find a display with a new Limited Edition Wet n Wild palette!

If you’ve read my reviews on the Paris Runway and Milano palettes knows that I think the quality of these palettes are awesome for drugstore eyeshadow palettes. If you’re looking for a cruelty free and affordable palette, I do reccomend them.

With that being said, to avoid repeating myself I’m just going to share photos and swatches and my thoughts on how this compares to the other two.

Price: $7.99, same as the others

Permanent? Nope, this is one of the limited edition items from Wet n Wild that will be popping up over Spring and into Summer. So, if you see it and want it, snag it.

Colors: This palette has a few very bright and colorful shades and some neutral shades. There are no matte shades in this one, so you may need to use some from other palettes if you’re like me and enjoy matte transition shades, but overall the colors are very pretty and I feel there’s a decent amount of diversity.

Quality: The quality is the same as the other two, in my opinion. Very easy to swatch, and the colors feel very nice. A few of the colors were very slightly powdery, but nothing too bad. I do feel that in terms of drugstore quality, these are awesome shadows.

This palette comes with the brush just like the other two did. It’s not my personal favorite brush, but it works if you’re in a pinch, or if you’re just starting out with makeup.

Swatches:

These swatches are done with no primer underneath. The color payoff was really nice. The yellow-ish color I had to work a bit with, but I typically do with all lighter shades because my skin is so fair. I’m dying over that greenish-teal color though. I really want to play with that one.

Overall thoughts: Ah, I’ve been sucked into the “limited edition” trap once more. However, this one I am very happy with, and I’m already planning out a possible “get ready with me” video using it! It’s probably obvious by now that Wet n Wild is one of my favorite drugstore brands.

I don’t know if I like this palette more than the Milano one, but I do like it more than the Paris Runway palette. I don’t like that it lacks mattes, but the pretty colors kind of make up for it I suppose. The closest thing to a matte is the teal shade, but even then it still has a bit of sparkle in it. However, if you did some blending you could probably blend the sparkle away. Only do that with shadows, don’t blend your real life sparkle away 😉

I do have some more limited edition goodies from Wet n Wild to review soon, so stayed tuned! If you’re new here, stay awhile if you want!

What are your thoughts on this palette?? Will you be picking it up?

Wet n Wild Silver Lake Collection

wet n wild silver lake

Hey lovelies,

Today I have a review with swatches of my palettes from the Wet n Wild Silver Lake Collection. I know these have been floating around for a bit, and I will admit to being skeptical at first. I find that with wet n wild shadows, they can be kind of hit and miss in terms of quality. However, I saw a few bloggers I follow talk about how awesome these were…and they’re limited edition. What is it about Limited Edition makeup that makes me buy it? You could put glittery baby turds in a container and put “limited edition” on it and I would buy it. Okay, maybe not, but I would definitely consider it.

Anyway, these little palettes have 6 shades per palette and are $3.99 each. That in itself is incredible! I feel that these are exclusive to Walgreens, or at least that is the only place I have seen displays for them at.

I have 3 palettes from the collection to share today, but there are 5 total palettes in the collection. California Roll is the other one that I want terribly, but I’m still looking for it. That seems to be the most popular one.

Since this one is the one I’ve had the longest, I will start with it. This is “Thrift Store Chic” and I bought it mostly for the name, because thrift store chic is actually my lifestyle. This is a very cute and flirty palette with mostly pinks. I will admit that the glitter shades in this one are kind of lacking, but I use elf’s glitter primer with them and they end up looking beautiful! I really love the last shade in this. I don’t really have a shade like it in my collection, so that alone made this one worth it. I adore the last shade in this palette though, and it made the purchase worth it. I’ve been trying to add more colorful palettes into my collection because I really need to venture outside of the neutral zone.

This little pal is called “Vegan Culture” and is most definitely way out of my comfort zone. I don’t wear a lot of blues because I feel it clashes with my green eyes, but I REALLY love the mint shades in this palette. The silver is also super pretty. The shimmery white shade is also lovely and would be the perfect inner corner shade. This palette is totally the perfect spring/summer palette for those in need of something fun! All of the colors in this one swatched beautifully, and are super buttery. The pigmentation is awesome with these, as you can probably tell by how much my tattoo is covered by the last few swatches. I can’t get over how lovely those minty green shades are.

The last one I have to show is “Vinyl Collection.” This one is very very neutral. I obviously needed another neutral palette…but it’s limited edition. It’s justified in my mind. I do like this palette and the quality is the same as Vegan Culture. My personal favorites in this one are the matte shade (perfect transition shade for my fair skin) and the dark khaki green shade. It’s so gorgeous, and I feel it has just enough brown in it for me to pull it off. If you’re in need of an everyday neutral palette with a twist, look into this one. It’s just a nice one to add to the collection, in my opinion.

IMG_6285

Overall, I am very impressed with these shadows. A few (namely the glitter shades) are a bit lacking, but it’s not horrible. I feel these are worth the $4 each and if you can find them all, pick them up! I have no idea when these will be taken off the shelves, but I do know more limited edition items are starting to hit the shelves as well *winks*

Like I mentioned before, there are 5 palettes total in this collection and you may need to hit up a few different Walgreens in your area to find them all. Every display I have seen only has 1-2 of each palette and usually 2-4 are sold out. Frustrating to say the least. If I do find the other two I will pick them up and create a separate post with swatches!

I will definitely be playing with these more and I’m thinking about using them to create a minty Spring/Summer look!
So, if you’re new here and you’re interested in seeing looks, make sure to stick around if you want! It’s free! 😉

As always, thank you for reading and I hope you are all having lovely nights.

Review and Swatches: Kat Von D Innerstellar Palette

As I have said a few times on my blog before, Kat Von D makes some damn great makeup. Expensive, but high quality and very unique. When my boyfriend told me he bought me the Innerstellar (limited edition palette fyi) palette I nearly fainted and squealed. I own some lip products and a foundation by Kat Von D, but I do not own any of her eyeshadow palettes. Sad, I know.

So, this review is very exciting for me. I’m going to quit rambling though and get to the point.

First, this palette is a Sephora exclusive and can be bought on sephora.com or it’s in stores.
It’s $46, so it is high end, but still a few bucks cheaper than the Urban Decay palettes.
This is a cool toned palette. If cool tones do not flatter you or are not your thing, this palette might not be for you.

I wear a lot of cool toned lipsticks and blushes since I am extremely pale and my skin undertones are naturally pink rather than beige. So, cool tones flatter my eyes and skin a great deal. Don’t get me wrong, I love warmer toned eyeshadows (also apparent on my blog) but I’ve been wanting something different since everyone seems to be on this warm tone kick right now. Personally, I needed to switch it up a bit.

IMG_3506

The packaging is a thick black cardboard material with a pretty big mirror on the inside, which I also like. It’s pretty big, but I feel it is still a very travel friendly palette. The reason why it’s a bit bigger is because the 3 bigger eyeshadows are 2.3 grams and the 9 smaller shadows are 1.1 grams. That’s a pretty decent amount of product, in my opinion.

IMG_3507

There are 3 bigger shades at the top, and I am assuming they’re bigger than the rest because these are typical “staple” shades that are used often universally. Whether as a base or as a highlight, these 3 shades are the ones many reach for to create many different looks. Because let’s be real, how many of us have hit pan very quickly in our Naked palettes with those smooth and precious little matte highlighting shades and thought, “Why?? I need you!”

Something else I look for in a palette is “is this thing versatile?” Meaning, can I create entire looks using only this palette? That’s actually a problem with me regarding most palettes. Many palettes lack something whether it’s a strong set of mattes, a transition shade, or the perfect highlighting shade or lack a matte black to take a look from daytime glam to “hey baby look at me.”

I have found that this palette passes the versatility test for me! There’s a transition shade, perfect highlighting shades, crease shades, a matte black, and little pops of color to create a ton of different and beautiful looks. I have tried a few things already with this palette, and I will show a few looks at the end of this post.

As for quality and pigmentation, Kat Von D brought her A game. I speak about her like we’re bff’s (I wish) but I’m being totally honest, you all. This palette is beautiful and the pigmentation is intense with every color. The shadows themselves are very smooth and buttery, and it doesn’t take a lot on your brush to get great results from the product. Every swatch I have done is without primer so you all can get a good idea of what the shadows look like.
As usual, I am sorry the lighter shades don’t show up very well on my moon tanned skin. Just take my word that they are pigmented. 😉

IMG_3647

These are the 3 bigger shades from the wrist down: Lycan (matte white), Vast (satin taupe), Gravitron (shimmery light pink)

IMG_3648

First 5 shades from the bottom up: Killing Moon (matte plum beige), Moonshine (shimmery gray), 3 am (dark purple), Orion (shimmery lavender), Darkstar (darker gunmetal gray)

IMG_3649

Last 4 shades from bottom up: Astrological (matte darker brown), Lunacy (satin taupe), Dios (very shimmery silver shade), Night Crawler (matte black)

Can we just take a second to admire the unique names Kat Von D has for everything? I love them. I know they weird some people out, but the eternal gothish-punk and horror fan in me loves it.

Would I recommend this palette to others? Absolutely. If you’re going back and forth between palettes if you’re still holding on to gift cards, my pick would be this one. Not just because it’s a great quality palette, but it’s also limited edition. I don’t always get my hands on limited edition makeup items very often, so I do cherish this one quite a bit.

Is it okay to call palettes babies? This is currently my baby.

Okay, I had my weird moment and now to show a few looks I have done using this palette and this palette alone.
