Wet’ n Wild Eye Makeup Remover

Hellooooo!!!

 

Today I’d like to talk about my experience with the Wet’ n Wild Makeup Remover.

While I am a firm believer that generally, you get what you pay for, there are lots of great products out there that are good AND cheap.  I don’t think having a good quality product must be expensive, even though that may be the case sometimes.  But then there are products that do fit the “you get what you pay for” statement.  This product cost $2.99, and I was not happy with it.

Here is this product’s description: “Whisk away the most stubborn mascaras, shadows, liners and shimmer.  Hypoallergenic, Ophthalmologist- tested.  Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers”.

I bought this eye makeup remover along with some other very nice eye shadow trios by Wet’ n Wild that I really like, and was very excited to try it out.  However, the first time I tried it (I tried it 2 more times after that), it gave me this terrible burning sensation on the skin around my eyes and that wasn’t enough.  I poured too much product in the cotton ball and it got into my eyes…. And let me tell you, my eyes burnt as if I had put soap in them.  Every now and then I manage to get some eye makeup remover in my eyes because I am always in a rush or not too careful, maybe.  But, of all the brands I have tried, this one is the first one that made my eyes burn…  Not a good thing.  So maybe, I am allergic to a substance in this product or have VERY sensitive skin, but this product did not work for me.

However, when I used it to wipe off the swatches on my arm, I did not get any burning sensation, so I’ll be using it for that purpose only.  So if you do a lot of swatches like me and are looking for some cheap makeup remover to clean that up, this works pretty well.

Hello everyone!!!

A029 Desert Festival                                                                                                                            A030 Dutchess Lounge

I am here to talk about two “oldie but goodie” products that are super worth your money. They are super pigmented, long lasting and blend easily.

With the Desert Festival palette, you get a matte orange, a champagne color with a little bit of shimmer, a lighter shade of orange, a dark shade of brown, both shimmery, and finally, a matte dark brown.  The only color that didn’t come off so well was the champagne one; however, you can still use it as a highlighter.

 

Now, while the Dutchess Lounge palette also has the same quality as the Desert Festival palette, the colors seem very tricky. The palette offers five different colors: dark eggplant with shimmer, silver with shimmer, a very dark grey with purple glitter, black with glitter and a matte purple.  However, once you put them on the three darker colors almost look the same. The black looks the darkest, but the other two different colors look very similar, but with glitter.  So overall, in my opinion, this palette is still a good option for a dark smokey eye for a night look, just not as versatile colors.

 

*** All the swatches  were done WITHOUT a primer.

 

You can find them at drugstores for about US$4.99 each.
