Makeup to Tickle Your Fancy: Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Collection

Makeup to Tickle Your Fancy: Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Collection

I know this collection has been out for a while in the US but since Canada always gets things a little later, it’s still relatively new in our country so I thought I would share my thoughts on it! πŸ˜‰ I’m talking about the Flights of Fancy collection by Wet n Wild! When Wet n Wild launches a colourful and fun makeup collection, especially in the summer, my eyes light up and my ears start to hum with excitement. This is definitely a makeup collection that tickles my fancy!

Inspired by the feathers of the Allen’s and Costa hummingbirds, this collection has tropical doses of purples, greens and blues as well as sweet pops of red, pink and coral. It’s a limited edition collection that comes with everything including 3 Color Icon Eyeshadow Quads, 2 MegaLiner Liquid Liners, 4 Color Icon Lip Glosses, 3 Color Icon Baked Blushes, a Perfect Pout Lip Scrub and a Photo Focus Primer Water.

Makeup to Tickle Your Fancy: Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Collection

Featuring a highly pigmented, pearly formulaΒ the 3 Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad‘s ($3.99) offer a unique, satin texture that blends evenly and won’t fade or crease. Stop Ruffling My Feathers offers a mix of bronzy and coral pink shades for a stunning summer look and Hasta La Costa Baby showcases pops of green and purple for a more colourful makeup look.

The Color Icon Baked Blush‘s ($5.99) come formulated with micro-fine pearl pigments to give your skin that tropical glow and the shades and hummingbird design on the product itself is stunning. Don’t Flutter Yourself is a coral pink that is always a must have for any summer collection and Dare to Soar is a bold purpley pink that looks stunning on darker skin tones.

The Color Icon Lip Gloss‘s ($4.99) come in 4 shades, including Pout of Paradise, a burnt orange that I get serious fall vibes from. They’re highly pigmented glosses that feature vitamin E and murumuru seed butter which keep your lips moisturized and nourished while looking glossy and gorgeous.

To amp up the look of your lips even more, the Perfect Pout Lip Scrub ($4.99), which comes in Citrus Elixir and Pecker Up and smell and taste as delicious as they sound, are made with extra fine sugar to buff away dead skin to keep them looking soft and supple. The scrubs also contain murumuru seed butter, as well as tucuma seed butter which both keep your lips nourished, moisturized and looking healthy.

Lastly, prep, set and/or refresh your skin with the Photo Focus Primer Water ($5.99). The primer water will keep you looking refreshed and glowing throughout the summer.

My Glittery Thoughts:

WnW knows how to come out with high quality eyeshadows that feel as good as higher end shadows and the quads are a perfect example of that. I love the fun and interesting colour combinations and how easy they are to work with. I like that there are options for the colour lovers, like me, and for the softer, more neutral eye makeup lovers. Plus, they’re only $3.99 each, so there is no reason to not get your hands on all of them! The blushes are another big hit for me because of their buttery texture and seamless blendability. The purpley pink, Dare to Soar, is a little too dark for my cheeks but it is a stunning eyeshadow and I love adding it to a look made with the Stop Ruffling My Feathers eyeshadow quad.

Another big hit in this collection is the Perfect Pout Lip Scrub. It’s nothing I’ve seen from Wet n Wild before but it makes sense because the sun can dry out your lips and make them look cracked and gross and these scrubs are a delicious and fun way of keeping them in good, healthy condition. The lip gloss shade, while gorgeous and very pigmented, doesn’t look the greatest on me, but I do want to give it another shot when it gets closer to fall because it just reminds me of pumpkins, PSL’s and colder weather. But the gloss feels very comfortable and moisturizing.

I had a bit of trouble getting the gold liquid liner to show up and look as opaque as possible while the dark green went on deep and dark with one stroke. I wish the gold had more pigmentation because I’d love to own a bold gold liquid liner but I will still use it regardless. Lastly, I love anything that hydrates and keeps my makeup looking fresh and the Photo Focus Primer Water is perfect in that way. It leaves a dewy finish and although it doesn’t make my makeup last much as long as my favourite setting sprays, it’s still a nice base and refresher for your makeup.

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation: Pale Girl Approved Shades

Review, Wet n Wild
Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation: Pale Girl Approved Shades

I love getting excited about a new foundation line, only to find out that the palest shade is still too dark or not the right tone. Well all that has changed thanks to Wet n Wild‘s new Photo Focus Foundation. The collection comes with not one not two but five Ivory based shades!

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation: Pale Girl Approved ShadesThe Photo Focus Foundation line is all about making your skin look like your own but better. It’s formulated with a matte, light-diffusing complex that gives your skin a #nofilter appearance and the complex also helps prevent giving you a white cast appearance in photos. To assure this, they tested the foundation under 7 light conditions with and without using flash photography. Not only do they have their bases covered with plenty of foundations for pale girls like myself, but they have tons of shades for dark skinned girls, who also have trouble finding the right shades, which brings the complete foundation offering to a total of 20 shades.

Price: $5.99 US / $7.99 CAD / 30 ml / Available now at Walmart

Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation: Pale Girl Approved ShadesFrom L-R: Shell Ivory, Soft Ivory, Nude Ivory

My Glittery Thoughts:

For this review, I got to test out three out of the five pale shades, which also includes Porcelain (the lightest shade) and Rose Ivory (the darkest of the pale shades). I figured the three within that range would offer the best colour choices for me and I was right. Firstly, I really like the applicator and the fact that I can dab a bit of the foundation all over my face without having to pour some onto the back of my hand. The first foundation, Shell Ivory, has a nice neutral pale colour that sits in between being a cool and warm shade and ended up being a perfect match for me. The next one was Soft Ivory, which is warm toned and when I want a warmer, more tanned look that is still natural on me, this shade works perfectly. The last foundation I tried was Nude Ivory, another neutral-toned shade thats a little bit darker than Shell Ivory but is still a decent match on my skin. The formula feels light and goes on smooth and yet it offers a beautiful medium coverage that gives a long wearing, matte finish that doesn’t oxidize over time. Since it’s got a matte finish, it works best when my skin is really hydrated underneath, just so it doesn’t cling to any dry spots. I’ve read reviews of some people getting bumps after wearing the foundation, but I’ve never experienced anything like that. I think if you have sensitive skin, you should test it out and see how your skin reacts to it first, otherwise I think you will love it like I do!

Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks Review

Review, Swatches, Wet n Wild
Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks Review

After a couple years of the same product offering, Wet n Wild is finally expanding their collection of products in Canadian retail stores! Very soonΒ you’ll start to see tons of new products trickle in within each makeup category, including the new MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks!

Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks Review

You may have already heard about the new MegaLast Liquid Catsuit lipsticks because they’re quite popular in the US. That’s because they glide on like a buttery gloss and then transform into a highly pigmented matte finish lipstick that feels like a second skin. They’re lightweight with intense pigmentation that doesn’t dry out the lips and come in 13 vivid shades.

Price: $5.99 ea. / Available at Mass Retailers

Wet n Wild MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipsticks Review

Top Row from L-R: Coral Corruption – light peachy pink, Pink Really Hard – light rosy pink
Bottom Row from L-R: Rebel Rose – light nude pink, Missy and Fierce – medium cool red

My Thoughts:

I usually don’t struggle whenΒ removing matte lipsticks because they’re not totally budge-proof, for the most part, but these lipsticks are definitely a game changer in that field. They are incredibly long lasting and require waterproof makeup remover and a ton of elbow grease to remove. That makes me feel more confident in wearing the darker shades because they’re not going to disappear quickly and leave me with a weird ring around my lips. I really like the angled applicator that lets me line my lips with great precision as well. It feels really lightweight, not too drying on the lips and every colour I have is beautifully pigmented. After eating and drinking, the colours stayed flawless and perfectly in tact. I am absolutelyΒ in love with this collection and can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the shades!
