Rimmel Paradise, L’oreal pretentious, tainted & precarious, Revlon lipgloss cherry in the glow, Wet N wild Sumptuous Quad is all the stuff I picked up the other night for under 15 bucks.
But first off with my favorite find of the week.
This is Wet N Wild’s Color Icon Limited edition eyeshadow quad called Sumptuous. I have been on a drugstore eyeshadow “ban” because truthfully it is best to spend money on higher end eye shadows but Wet n Wild never ceases to impress me.
I picked this quad up for 5 bucks and I’m glad I did because the colors are very nice and pigmented. At first I was very skeptical of the gold because I thought it was pieces of glitter with a sticky base, but turns out that it’s this very nice gold cream shadow with great consistency and color payoff, as opposed to the horrible base and chunks of glitter Wet N wild has come out with before in their palettes.
I love every color, smooth to apply, pigmented and the colors have a bit of shimmer but not too noticeable in person which is why I like it. I can wear it day or night and the orange with brown look I did for the day is my favorite.
For a drugstore eyeshadow Wet n wild always beats the rest. Most drugstore shadows are way too sheer and loaded with shimmers. But this quad gives you a lot for your money in terms of color payoff and overall quality.
You can play this look up or down with black liner and my favorite, the cat eye look as well. For earlier in the day I did not line my eyes but soon as the sun went down I played it up with black liner and liquid liner for the cat eye look.
Another great find was this Rimmel lipstick called paradise. I actually have 2 other paradise lipsticks and had to pick another one up for $1.37 75% off I had to stock up. This is such a pretty and soft color. Goes well with neutrals as well as a nice purple smokey eye. I really like Rimmel’s lipsticks and this one is my favorite.
Also for 75% off some l’oreal glosses I got pretentious, tainted, and precarious. Tainted is a pretty wine almost violet color while pretentious is this sheer brown very similar to L’oreal’s Butter Scotch drop juicy tube. My favorite however is precarious which is this nicely pigmented coral and orange color with light shimmers which I love. With a nice coral blush this gloss looks gorgeous on me.
For about 2 bucks each I think I did a good buy. Glosses are always best to buy at drugstores since I feel some of them compare to the high end glosses.
