My favorite products by Wet n Wild – and a few not so favorites

29 Apr 2016

It’s almost that time of the month…time to pick out my favorite products of the last couple of weeks. Before I do that, I’m doing another installment of my ‘best of’ series today! In these series I tell you my one-brand favorites. A couple of days ago I showed you my favorite IT Cosmetics products and today it’s all about the brand Wet n Wild! Which products are worth getting and which one(s) are not?

Wet n Wild is sold at the drugstore and has a ton of products that are very, very inexpensive. The quality is great though, the shades are endless, they’re cruelty free, very innovative and they continuously come out with new (limited edition) collections.
Fun facts: they sell one black eyeliner pencil every 20 seconds. That’s 3 a minute and 1.5 million a year! Wet n Wild launched in 1979 (my year of birth!) with lipsticks and nail polishes at 99 cents and the same lipsticks and nail polishes are the same price today. Crazy!

Ok, on to my current favorite products! Like last time, I’m not going to ‘dwell’ too long on each product, because I don’t want to make this post too long. If you’d like a more detailed review on anything, just let me know. 🙂

1 Step WonderGel Nail Color

These are nail polishes that don’t require a top coat and cure without a UV lamp. 1 Step WonderGel is Wet n Wild’s first polish with the gel formula. It lasts at least a week on my nails without chipping and the shade selection is nice!

MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner

This liquid eyeliner is pigmented, dries fast and stays on my oily lids. It’s not waterproof, but I believe there’s a waterproof version as well. I love the brush on it: it’s flexible and easy to use.

Color Icon Blush

The Color Icon blush has been around for a while, but they’ve recently reformulated it and I love it even more now! It’s really smooth, blendable and very pigmented. It lasts for a while, even on my oily skin. I have it in the shade Mellow Wine.

To Reflect Shimmer Palette

I believe they’re slowly discontinuing these Fergie To Reflect Shimmer powders. Too bad, cause they are beautiful! They’re finley mild and very pigmented. They give you a pretty glow, without looking like disco ball. Wet n Wild does still has something similar in their collection though, just without Fergie’s name.

Megaglo Highlighting Powder

These highlighting powders are equally as pretty! Launched with the Lost in the Wild Flowers Summer 2016 Collection, they give you a naturally luminous glow without going overboard. I have Precious Petals and Crown of my Canopy. How pretty is the design? I’m so tempted to buy backups of these, just to look at. 😀

Geometric Highlighting Powder

Yes, another highlighter! Sun Ceremony was a limited edition product that is not as pigmented as the previous powders, but still very pretty. More of an ‘everyday’ product, if you ask me. I have to admit, I also picked this up because of the cute design. 😀

MegaLast Lip Color

Wet n Wild MegaLast lipsticks are a must-have! They’re hella pigmented, long lasting and have a semi-matte cream finish that won’t dry out your lips. They don’t cake, feather or bleed either. I think I have them all (no joke!), love them!

Metallic Liquid Lipstick

These are my most recent Wet n Wild purchases: the Metallic Liquid Lipsticks. They are new: like the highlighting powders, they launched with the Lost in the Wild Flowers Summer line. They are available in 6 shades and I’m not really sure if Wet n Wild is keeping it on permanently or if it will be available for a limited time only…
They are said to be liquid color with metallic finish, but in my opinion they are more like very pigmented lipglosses, because they stay glossy and are far from being drying. Very pretty and definitely different from the current ‘matte lips’ trend.

What I do not recommend from Wet n Wild are their foundations. The Ultimate Match Foundation, Ultimate Sheer Tinted Moisturizer, Intuitive Blend Shade-Adjusting Foundation etc… I tried them all and none of them held up on my oily skin. Some even made me break out really bad. I don’t recommend them.

So that’s Wet n Wild! Which brand should I do next?
