Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick Fall 2015 Limited Edition Shades Review

There's something about the Wet N Wild lipsticks that I just can't quit. Well, the brand as a whole, really. They make some really good stuff, and more often than not, their limited edition collections are pretty amazing.

So when I heard about their Fall 2015 collection - Here's To The Wild Ones - umm, I fell hard. One, because the name is pretty awesome, and two, because of the lipstick shades.

What's so special about the lipsticks in this collection, you might ask? One way to put it is this, I suppose: I got 99 problems but a vampy shade of lipstick ain't one (ahem. There is clearly a reason why I'm not in the songwriting business.)

This collection has 6 lipsticks, 6 nail lacquers, and 4 eyeshadow palettes. Unfortunately, my Walgreens was out of everything else, but I was lucky enough to get the lipstick shades I had set my sights on. So, onwards!

Wet N Wild To Reflect Shimmer Palette Review - Rose Golden Goddess & Carnival In Rio

Continuing with the Wet N Wild highlighter reviews (I reviewed Hollywood Boulevard and Rose Champagne Glow in my last post here), today I'm talking about the other two (well, technically the other one, but we'll get to that in the end).

While Hollywood Boulevard and Rose Champagne Glow were most definitely highlighters, Rose Golden Goddess and Carnival In Rio are not so clearly defined. They're deeper than the first two, and so their function depends entirely on your skin tone.

Wer N Wild Fergie To Reflect Shimmer Palette Review - Hollywood Boulevard & Rose Champagne Glow

Given that the world seems to be going nuts over strobing - what is even up with that, can I ask - everyone seems to be in the search of the next big highlighter. Or, well, something that does the job without breaking the bank, you know?


I have a lot of love for Wet N Wild products - they really do have some lovely products - and I'm not sure why their highlighters aren't more talked about, really. I'm about to rectify that *dun dun DUN*.

ColourPop Lippie Stix in Grunge Review (Limited Edition Fall 2015)

I'm not going to do what I usually do and talk a bunch about this product before coming to a conclusion. Nope, not this time.

What I am going to say is this - if you're medium to deep skinned and/or have even a faint nostalgia when it comes to the 90's, you need to go right now and get this shade. Do it, I'll wait.

Look, I'll be perfectly honest. Back in the 90's, I was a kid. Heck, I was a tomboy as a child and a geek as a teen (who am I kidding, still have the geek force in me) and if you'd asked me what was trendy in the world of makeup at the time I'd have gaped at you.

This shade, however - this collection, in fact - kinda makes me wish I was more into makeup in those days. I'm definitely one of the many who are elated at the fact that the 90's are making a comeback!

The ColourPop Lippie Stix in Grunge is one of several that ColourPop released as part of their 'ColourPop Throws It Back' collection and hoo boy, have they ever.

Guess who fell sick?

So I fell sick over the weekend and feel quite dreadful at the moment, so I don't think I'll be able to get a post up today. I'm hoping it won't affect my posting for the rest of the week! I'm also hoping to get today's post up tomorrow instead (if I feel better, fingers crossed!).

I hope you all had a great weekend!

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows Review (Limited Edition Fall 2015)

For Fall 2015, ColourPop came out with their 'ColourPop Throws It Back' collection (also called, apparently, Back To The 90's) as a homage to the grunge look of the 90's (which I absolutely do not remember because I was full-bodied tomboy during my childhood) so I took it as a chance to re-live the 90's look.

I was very fastidious when choosing what to pick from this collection, because despite it having several lovely shades and sets, I'm trying to stick to colors that I'll actually use. With that thought in mind, I picked up only two of the ten Super Shock shadows available in this range.

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 2 Lipstick Review

MAC's Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 2 was released online on September 8th (10th in stores) and I knew I wanted it the moment I saw swatches of it. I pretty much ordered it the day it came out, and I've had it for a couple of days now and have been testing it out.

Now, both the Viva Glam Miley lipsticks are available online on the MAC website, and they're also available in stores.

Just as a reminder, all the proceeds from the Viva Glam line (100% of the price) goes to a charity that helps men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS. That's a pretty fantastic reason to buy this, but the color also makes a compelling reason!
