Follow EverydayMakeupBlog on Bloglovin'

Have you heard the NEWS, Google is getting rid of Google Reader for good on July 1st, 2013. If you use it to follow your favorite blogs, then consider switching to Bloglovin. I've been using Bloglovin for awhile now and I honestly like it better than Google Reader. It loads faster, you can organize your favorite blogs into categories (which I need to work on) and they have a Bloglovin App. It's pretty easy and simple to import from Google Reader to Bloglovin. Click HERE.

Wet n Wild Pop Art Craze Coloricon Eye Shadow Trio Collection Review/Swactches *Limited Edition*

Happy Thursday, everyone!!! Few more days and you can get your hands on the new limited edition Pop Art Craze Coloricon Eye Shadow Trio by Wet n Wild. Ever since they discontinued the I Heart Matte palette, which everyone loved, many of you has been asking WnW to bring it back or come out with matte eye shadows. I'm happy to say that Wet n Wild listened and here they are! This Summer collection consist of brights and pastels with mostly matte finish. It comes in a white packaging which makes them stand out from the rest of the Wet n Wild trios.

I took photos of the colors and swatches with and without a flash to hopefully capture the true colors of the eye shadows. I hope you guys find my review and swatches helpful!

This trio screams Summer to me, but the colors are more pastel than it appears on the pan. Pastel Yellow (slight satin finish) is the most pigmented in the trio. It's more of a soft yellow when swatched.  The Purple (matte) and Magenta (slight satin finish) are not as pigmented as I would like so I recommend applying with a sponge tip applicator to get the maximum color pay off.

This trio also screams Summer. The Buttery Yellow (slight satin) is pigmented and smooth as such a beautiful color. The Blue Teal (matte) is extremely bright and true to color. It's pigmented and easy to blend. It's my favorite in the trio. The Burnt Orange (slight satin) is not as pigmented yet pretty! Apply using a sponge tip to get the maximum color pay off.

This palette reminds me of Easter. Such a cute trio. The Baby Pink (matte) is pigmented pastel pink color that's easy to apply. The Blue (matte) is bright on the pan but is subtle on the swatch. It's very pigmented and easy to apply too. Cream (matte) is such a beautiful soft cream color. It would be a great highlighter on the brow bone and eyelids.

This is probably my favorite one out of the collection in terms of colors, texture and pigmentation. White (matte), Red (matte) and Black (matte) are all true to colors. The red is really red. The black is really black. They are extremely pigmented and easy to apply. I can't to play with the red eye shadow.

The Yellow Green (matte), Ocean Blue (matte) are both my favorites in the trio. They are bright, pigmented and easy to apply. I want to play with these colors soon.
The Raspberry (matte) appears more brighter in the pan than swatch. Not as pigmented but nonetheless, a beautiful color.

Peach (matte) is a gorgeous peach color. The Brown (matte) is gorgeous as well. It has a slight sheen to it on the swatch but it's absolutely matte to the naked eye. It's at true brown that's soft, pigmented, easy to blend and apply. I love it! The Baby Blue (matte) is also soft, pigmented and easy to apply.

Overall, I enjoyed the whole collection. I'm a sucker for bright colors and I can definitely sport them this Summer. I love how the finish of the eye shadows are mostly mattes. Even the one's with a slight satin finish can pass as matte because the sheen is not too noticeable. Most of the eye shadows are pigmented and easy to apply and even the ones that were a bit stiff and weren't too pigmented are okay with me as long as I use a primer and use a sponge applicator to apply. If I were you, I would get my butt to the drugstores in July so I can snag them all before they sold out.



These retail for $2.99 at your local drugstores in July 2013.

Wet n Wild Fergie Perfect Pout Lip Gloss Review/Photos/Swatches

Here are the new limited edition Wet n Wild Fergie Perfect Pout lip glosses. I'm glad they're adding lip glosses to the Fergie line. Now, all they need are blushes and the entire collection is complete. They are very similar to their regular Glassy Gloss in terms of look and packaging, but I found some slight differences that makes them stand out from the rest.

Read on for my review...

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout lip gloss in Hot, Hot Haute(left) and Fergaluscious(right)

Wet n Wild claims, "Get a 'Don't you wanna kiss this?!' set of luscious lips! Long-lasting shine, come hither colors + deliciously flavored- now that's a perfect pout". (taken from promo sheet)

COLORS/PIGMENTATION
-Hot, Hot, Haute is a nice pinky coral lips gloss. It's sheer yet a bit of the color shows through my pigmented lips. I find these more pigmented than their regular Glassy Gloss. I really like it.

-Fergaluscious is a gold color as described by Wet n Wild. To me, t's more like a metallic champagne gold that looks light on the lips. I don't like metallic lip colors in general. It's very metallic with fine shimmers that doesn't flatter my medium/tan skin tone. It's not for me.

TEXTURE/LONGEVITY
-Hot, Hot, Haute is a tad stickier than the regular Glassy Gloss, but tolerable so I don't mind it at all.

-Fergaluscious is very, very stick. It's stickier compare to their Glassy Gloss with metallic finish. I felt it as soon as I put it on. I kept it on for a while and the stickiness didn't go away. I didn't like it.

PRICE
They retail for $3.49 at your local Walgreens. But you can get them at a lower price if you have coupons. They will be available in July 2013, but some stores will most likely place them on shelves earlier.

Here's how they look on my lips. Keep in mind that my lips has discoloration so these colors may look different on your lips.

Overall, I prefer Hot, Hot, Haute over Fergaluscious. The sheer coral color is more flattering on me and it's not too sticky.


What do you guys think of these colors?
