Wet N Wild Color Icon blush

Wet N Wild blushes are much raved about as being some of the best blush products in the drugstore. I bought one in Mellow Wine years ago, but I hardly wore it. The reason? It just wasn’t my shade. It was a bit dark and I had a hard time getting it to blend in nicely. So I had to use a very light hand and most of the year the color just wasn’t a great match for me. I ended up decluttering in, but I did like the formula enough that I figured: if I got two different shades that suit me more, I’m sure I’d use it more. And I couldn’t have been more right.  wet n wild color icon blush ombre rosé champagne in a purple haze review swatch

Wet N Wild Photofocus foundation

The Wet N Wild Photofocus foundation is a cult favorite by now and I was lucky enough to snatch one up from the US drugstore when I visited last year. Since they only had a few shades left, I picked one up that was a tad light for me during the summer, which is why I am only getting round to reviewing this now. Is this as good as everyone says it is?

30 Day Make Up Challenge #3: Green

30 Day Make Up Challenge #3: Green

We are still on the color themes of the 30 day make up challenge. The first 10 rounds are, and we are now at round no. 3 which calls for a green make up look. I went with this very autumnal looks, with a mossy green eye and a plum colored lip. It’s a mix of both drugstore and high end products, so I hope you enjoy!

On these pictures the eyes look kind of muted down, but in real life it looked much smokier and heavier. I don’t mind the subtle though. It’s a nice touch combined with that fairly bold lip color. And very fall like if you ask me: the lip color is a deep burgundy shade which makes this so much more fall appropriate.

Read on to find out which products I’ve used.

I realized after taking the pics, that it looks like I have a patch of bare skin in my crease. As you may see on the pictures where I have my eyes open, you will see I have quite the fold and I applied the crease color with my eyes open. You only see it when I close my eyes anyway which, during the day, I don’t usually have.
