Lately I have really been loving some great drug store products! If you missed it you can catch the article I wrote on some of my favorite e.l.f. products, but there are some great products from Wet N Wild that I NEED to share with you!
I remember Wet N Wild from way back when I was in high school, but I don’t remember using a lot of their products or thinking they were good quality. Today, the brand has really upped their game and the products are so affordable it is a fantastic value. In addition, I love that everything is cruelty free. Read on so I can tell you about my top 5 products from this brand!
Photofocus Foundation ($5.99)- I am blown away by the quality of this $5 foundation! It promises to prevent any photo flashback, being tested under various lighting conditions with different Smartphone models. I don’t really care about all that so much, but what I DO care about is that this goes on easily, gives a smooth semi-matte finish and has great lasting power. I also like that it doesn’t feel heavy on my skin when I wear it. The applicator is a spatula which I find makes application easy. There is a great shade range selection with 20 colors to choose from (some high end foundations don’t even have that broad of a range!) The only drawback that I’ve found with this foundation is that it does not contain an SPF so be sure to apply one separately!
Coloricon blush ($2.99) There are five colors in this blush collection and my favorite is “Pearlescent Pink.” This color is a beautiful peachy pink with a slight sheen. This formula blends perfectly and gives a beautiful flush to the cheeks! These blushes really have a generous sized pan that will last a long time for the price. The color is very pigmented, and a little goes a long way so don’t be too heavy handed with this product! Another nice blush color in this collection is “Apri-Cot in the Middle” which is a peachy nude also with a hint of sheen. Ooh la la!
Color Icon Bronzer in “Ticket to Brazil” ($3.99)- This is a perfect shade for lighter skin tones and not too orangey. There is no chunky glitter or shimmer which is something that I look for in bronzers also. The pan is a really generous size – I think it might take years to hit pan on it! It just adds the right amount of color to give more dimension to the skin. Another plus is that it has SPF 15. I feel like I look relaxed, having just returned from vacation, every time I put it on!
MegaLast Liquid Catsuit lipstick ($4.99) These liquid lipsticks are a recent release from Wet N Wild that has taken the beauty community by storm. I still cannot believe that these liquid lipsticks are $5!! There are 13 shades ranging from your nudes to your really dark vampy shades. “Rebel Rose” is my favorite shade – it’s a beautiful pinky brown mauve. Another honorable mention goes to the color “Give Me Mocha,” a warm pinky brown. The product has great staying power and does not over-dry my lips. Note that this is a matte formula, so if you are a shiny, glossy type of girl then you probably won’t enjoy this product. I love the packaging – you get a generous amount of product and the applicator has a little curve in it which makes it so much easier to apply on your lips. If you are a liquid lipstick fan, then you know that these products are not forgiving and need a precise application to look good, both of which can be achieved easily with this lipstick.
Photofocus pressed powder ($4.99)- I actually purchased this is a darker skintone to use as a bronzer when I am self tanning and darker than I am now, even though it is actually a pressed powder that can be used to set foundation and concealer into place. I really like the feel of the powder and it has a great shade selection with 8 different shades to choose from.
So you really have nothing to lose in trying out these products if you haven’t been using Wet N Wild. Many drugstores and retail chains like Target carry their line and they also have their website if you like to shop from home. Let me know what your experience has been with Wet N Wild and what products you are loving from the drugstore!
