feels so much lighter, since I've met you"
Yes, I got a bunch of these in January so it isn't new or anything. So, what do I think of them?
First of all, they are so cheap!! And you guys should know that I'm big old cheaper and I don't like to spend a lot of money on anything unless I feel like I need it. Sometimes, I try to convince myself that I need some makeup and that's when I do go and buy stuff. Anyways, this is not a post about me, it is about my Wet N' Wild stuffies:
I got this for 75c and that's why I even got it in the first place. This is my first experiment w/ a pressed powder. I wanted something that would just set my liquid foundation. I think this is good for that. Just a light touch with a big fluffy brush and you're foundation will stay and your face will be matte. Now, I think that this pressed powder SUCKS in being a pressed powder. It doesn't really give you any coverage and sometimes I feel like it makes my pores look bigger. I don't think it'll prevent shines or anything (my skin is dry so I don't worry about it). So honestly, save yourself the money and buy something better! If you're like me and just need a powder to set foundation, then get this. It's cheap, it doesn't clog pores, it doesn't irritate my skin. It's been okay for me. The reason why I do set my foundation is to prevent streaking of blushes and bronzers. It happens when my face is still kinda 'wet' with foundation.
2)Blush Pearlescent Pink
What intrigued me was the idea of a 'silky finish'. And I don't quite know if it does give me that. However, this is a LOVELY color!! Very pigmented~ The only problem (and maybe not a problem) is that it has a lot of gold glitter in it. Now, this glitter is really pretty. It's like shimmer instead of glitter but I wouldn't wear it in the day time. I save this blush for going out at night. And it truly works perfectly for that. The only thing that I don't like is staying power. I'm not sure if it has the ability to stay for more than 2 hours. I doubt it.
3)MegaGlo Illuminator Spotlight Peach
Indeed, this might be my favorite product out of my entire haul! I LOVE THIS THING! AHH!! It gives me a nice subtle tannish peachy color for my cheeks. Since I'm not fair, it looks really natural on me! When I use my Ecotools blush brush, it just goes on perfectly. I really recommend people buying one of these blushes b/c they kick butt!!! YES, they do. Let me say it again - PERFECT for everyday look~
Overall: 5/5 (it gets the cupcake award!)
