Wow! Wet n Wild really put some razzle and dazzle in their Sequins and Stardust Holiday 2016 Collection, didn’t they glamour babes?!
The glamorous display has an old Hollywood look and feel to it, with a subtle flair of Gatsby glam. Well, that’s the way I see it anyway. I think the theme here is suppose to have more of a 70’s vibe. Hence, the lip gloss name Boogie White Lights, lol.
The photo above is courtesy of Nouveau Cheap. The displays that I have spotted were pretty sparse, as I would expect. The limited edition collection is beautiful, a true makeup must have. I picked a few items out of the set; All four Coloricon Loose Pigments ($2.99), two Coloricon Lip Glosses ($2.99), and the Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar ($3.99). Only leaving the lashes and nail polishes behind. Although appealing, I own plenty of nail color, and I never cared for Wet n’ Wild’s faux eyelashes. After seeing them separate from the lash tray, I was reminded once more by how cheap, plasticky, and heavy they truly are.
Okay, enough talk about the items I didn’t buy, let me get into the pieces I did buy.
Wet n’ Wild’s Loose Pigment Shadows in shades (top to bottom) Kung Fu Lightening, Dom & Cherry on Top, Heart of Rose Gold, and Ride on my Copper are stunning.
When opening these nice sized containers, they reminded me of salt and pepper shakers due to the clever little plastic flip lids and holes to prevent spillage, great idea! Who wudda thunk it?! Not me, lol. The shadows are lightweight, finely milled, comfortable to wear, highly pigmented, blendable, buildable, and produce long lasting wear when used with a primer. FYI: They can be used as highlighter too. Now, that’s what I call a multitasker, wink.
Coloricon Prismatic Lip gloss: The Loco Potion (sheer coral), and Moxie Brown (fawn peach) are the two glosses I chose out of the four. Boogie White Lights (White), and Ring my Bell Bottoms (gold) weren’t my favorite, both in shades and movie/jean type. The formulation of Wet n’ Wild’s Coloricon Lip glosses are all the same. Lightweight, moisturizing, slippery, sheen, sheer, comfortable to wear, each has a plush doe foot wand, and they are not sticky nor tacky. The only difference is that these Prismatic Glosses are formulated with Micro Fine glitter. Wear alone or on top of your favorite lipstick to create a dazzling holiday look. Smile everyone!
I saved the best for last boys and girls, the pièce de résistance. The oh so exquisite Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar, Holly Gold Head. Isn’t she just breathtaking?! There are two shades inside if you can’t tell. The star is rose gold, and the bar is the color of pure gold. It is finely milled, lightweight, highly pigmented, buildable, blends easily, has a pearlized finish, and lasts for hours. And, there is a surprise that I did not know about until now. An enclosed mirror!It’s right in back of the compact! How nifty is that?! Holly, I’m going to be dripping in gold for days now, which is something i’ll be looking forward to.
Wet n Wild’s Sequins and Stardust Collection is available at CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid.
Stay beautiful, xo.
