Swatches

After my last experience with Wet n Wild I was hesitant about purchasing the full Flights of Fancy Collection Box. Instead I spent what little free time I did have trying to track down a few of the products I wanted to try in person. I was only able to find two products. One of them is the Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad in Hasta La Costa Baby. I was hoping to get Flock Party as well, but I haven’t been able to find it yet.

Hasta La Costa Baby contains 4 eyeshadows. The shades look really pretty and colorful and really called to me. They swatched beautifully! For the most part they applied just as nicely. However, the crease and eyelid shades didn’t really pop. I ended up applying the eyelid shade on my lower lash line and the crease shade in my outer crease. I applied the eyelid shade with a dampened brush thinking it would pop more, but it didn’t. It just ended up looking dull. The crease shade too. I kept trying to pack it on hoping for it to pop even a little, but it just wasn’t happening.

I applied the other 2 eyeshadows the way they were intended. Those worked out much better. In the end I was pleased with my look, but if I’m being honest I was hoping for a little more color. If only they had applied the way they swatched this quad would have been perfect! You can see a look I created with Hasta La Costa Baby below. I applied the browbone shade on my eyelid and browbone, the transition shade in my crease, the crease shade in my outer crease, and the eyelid shade on my lower lash line.

Overall, it’s an ok quad. I was still pleased with my look, but I really wish those 2 colorful shades popped more. But they did apply and blend beautifully. I was able to create a complete look using just this quad. And for just $2.99 you really can’t go wrong.

Have you purchased anything from the Flights of Fancy Collection? Did anything from the collection catch your eye?

Wet n Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection

Wet n Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection

Wet n Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection

A few weeks back I was thinking that Wet n Wild should be coming out with their Spring Collection soon. Then I saw the promo photos for the Goth-O-Graphic Collection and excitement set in. It looked even cooler than their other collections! But maybe I’m just a sucker for skulls and metallics? Once the collection was released online I purchased the entire set. I really only had my eyes on both of the MegaGlo Highlighting Powders, the MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder, 1 MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Eyeshadow, and 1 MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipstick. But I figured another $10 and I could just have the whole set. I mean even if only half of the products worked out for me it would be worth the money. Well, I’m sad to say that none of these products worked out for me. And since Wet n Wild doesn’t offer refunds, I’m stuck with a box of useless products.

I’m so bummed. I honestly don’t think this Spring Season in a Box is worth $39.99. The quality just isn’t the same as their previous collections. I’ll break it down by product.

MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Purple Ashes

Swatches: White Raven, Purple Ashes

MegaGlo Highlighting Powder $4.99

  • Purple Ashes
  • White Raven

These two beauties are what I was most excited to get my hands on. The skull packaging is too cute! However, I found them to be very sheer. My swatches are heavily built up. They’re not all that bad, but they’re nothing like the other MegaGlo Highlighting Powders I’ve tried in the past. I know a lot of their products can be very hit or miss, but I’ve always felt their MegaGlo Highlighting Powders were pretty solid. These are just ok.

MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder $6.99

  • Moon Tears

In my opinion the MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder is the only winner from the entire collection. I still don’t think this one product alone is worth paying the $39.99 for the box so I’m still a little bitter about that. If you spot this in the store I’d definitely scoop it up if I were you. It offers a really nice glow. A little more subtle, but it can easily be built up. You also get quite a bit of product for the price. It’s a really great buy.

  • Hell-O Darkness

The MegaGlo Highlighting Stick is a beautiful shade! It’s fairly creamy, but it doesn’t really apply evenly. It’s not too big of a deal because you can always use your finger tips to blend it out.

MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Eyeshadow in Goth Tears, Mystic Dreamer, Nyctophilia, Pure Intension

Wet n Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection

Swatches: Goth Tears, Mystic Dreamer, Nyctophilia, Pure Intension

MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Eyeshadow $4.99

  • Goth Tears
  • Mystic Dreamer
  • Nyctophilia
  • Pure Intension

The MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Eyeshadows really bummed me out. I had my eye on Mystic Dreamer so that’s the one I tried first. It’s a gorgeous shade, but it doesn’t apply evenly at all. I tried to quickly blend it out with my finger tips as I usually do when working with liquid eyeshadows. But no matter how much blending I did it was super glittery in some areas and super sheer in others. I suppose these would work ok if you were applying a bit to the center of your lid for a halo type effect. But if you’re going for an all over lid shade you might be disappointed. And don’t even waste your time with Nyctophilia. The other shades at least swatched nicely. This one didn’t.

Swatches: Black Butterfly, Pink Coffin, Skull Prayer

MegaLiner Metallic Liquid Eyeliner $3.99

  • Black Butterfly
  • Pink Coffin
  • Skull Prayer

The MegaLiner Metallic Liquid Eyeliners are super pretty! I bet these could make for some cute little accents or look nice layered on top of your traditional liner. My problem? It would be nice if the brush didn’t look like this. Seriously, what am I supposed to do with that? What kind of a line am I going to make with that? Not a precise one I can tell you that!

MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipstick in Death To Unicorns, Gunmetal Heart, Pastel Grunge, Wicked Pink

Wet n Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection

Swatches: Death To Unicorns, Gunmetal Heart, Pastel Grunge, Wicked Pink

MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipstick $4.99

  • Death To Unicorns
  • Gunmetal Heart
  • Pastel Grunge
  • Wicked Pink

Finally we have the MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Metallic Lipsticks. I’ve tried some of their metallic lipsticks in the past and they were pretty awesome! They were nicely pigmented and they applied nice and evenly. These? They did this weird thing when I tried to swatch and apply them. It would bead up and the beads wouldn’t spread out. In my swatches I had to run the wand back and forth trying to break up the beads and maybe get a decent enough swatch. It wasn’t happening. I don’t think I’ve ever had this happen before. I also detected a bit of a scent. It wasn’t vanilla or floral. It was rather funky. It wasn’t strong, but it was definitely noticeable.

The look I created with these products was awful. I ended up removing everything and did a quick face before leaving the house. I will definitely use the MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder in a look later on this week. For now I’ll just leave you with these photos, swatches, and my thoughts.

Overall, the Wet n Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection was a huge miss for me. The packaging is all kinds of cute and I’m even digging the product names. However, the quality isn’t what I’ve come to expect from Wet n Wild. Their previous collections have been huge hits for me. I may end up with a dud here and there, but I’ve never ended up with a box full of duds. Well, the MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder isn’t a dud. I do recommend that. And maybe the MegaGlo Highlighting Stick if those types of highlighters are your thing.

Have you tried anything from the Wet n Wild Goth-O-Graphic Collection? What are your thoughts?

Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in The Sweetest Bling

March 16, 2017 | Beauty, Wet n Wild | 14 Comments »


Wet n Wild Queen of My Heart Collection

Wet n Wild Queen of My Heart Collection

Swatches (Left to Right): The Sweetest Bling, Lilac To Reality

The new Wet n Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powders from the Queen of My Heart Collection seem to be the most popular items in the collection. I can see why. The shades are pretty unique. I don’t have a lot of pink highlighters in my collection and I definitely don’t have any lilac highlighters.

The packaging is simple, but the heart design is super cute! I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about the hearts claiming they’re childish and that the entire collection reminds them of children’s makeup. I just don’t see that. The Lip Palette might give off that vibe, but I think the highlighters are really cute. The collection is called Queen of My Heart so the heart really is fitting. The Sweetest Bling is a very pretty pink. It’s surprisingly very pigmented. In the swatches above you’ll see that I swatched the inner heart as well as the outer part. I like it because I feel like I’m getting 2 highlighters in 1!

I did use a light hand because I was afraid of overdoing it. I found that I had to build up a bit, but at least I gave myself more control over the intensity. It can be very easy to overdo it with these highlighters.

You can see The Sweetest Bling in action below. I used the inner heart on the inner corner of my eyes. I used the outer part to highlight my cheeks, nose, and cupid’s bow.
