Wet 'n' Wild Haul & Review

Hi Everyone,

If you follow me on Instagram (HERE), you'd already know that my very sweet Sis-In-Law V, indulged me with some Wet n' Wild products while she was on vacation in the States. She knew the 'Budget product Junkie' in me would love some drugstore products & what better than some W&W products to pamper me!! Special thanks & warm hugs going out to her on this post...Thank you Baby!

So with some refreshing Green tea to give me company, I'm ready to share my haul with you today :-) Let's begin -

1. 'Take On the Day Eyeshadow Primer' from the Fergie Centerstage Collection

The smallest wonder of this entire haul but a good one at that! This lil primer potion comes out pearly but blends clear on application. It brightens up the eyelid & forms a smooth base. It ensures that my eyeshadow lasts for a good 6-7hrs & keeps them from creasing on my oily eyelids.

2. Wet 'n' Wild ColorIcon Blush in 'Pearlescent Pink 831E'

I had read online that this lil blush was a drugstore-dupe for the very famous 'Orgasm' by NARS. Since I don't own the NARS one, I cant really say anything about the claim. All I know is that Pearlescent Pink gives a nice, warm flush to the cheeks, while looking absolutely natural. It has a smooth finish on applicaton thanks to being finely milled, but that also means that you've got to be careful while dipping your blush brush in it - this baby can go everywhere if you arent careful!

3. Wet 'n' Wild Megalast Lipstick in 'Cherry Picking 965'

Cherry Picking is a stunning deep pink true to its name! I have a ton of pinks in my lipstick collection, but I've never owned a shade like this one... yay for me ;-) It's semi-matte on application & dries a bit after some time. True to it's name, it's really 'megalasting' & has a wear time of around 5+ hrs on me. It does transfer a bit while having a meal or drinking water, but that doesn't affect the shade on the stains the lips & somehow manages to look as pigmented as it was on application. This is one Va-Va-Voom shade ... go for it if you love bright lips!

4. 'Rose Champagne Glow Highlighter A045' from the Fergie Centerstage Collection

This beauty has become my one of my favourites of this entire haul :-) Rose Champagne Glow gives me the softest glow ever & it great for daily use. I haven't tried it on 'evenings out' yet but I'm sure it's going to rock even there. The amount of product one gets would last for a very long time & the highlighter itself is very long-lasting! In the packaging, it's yummy looking swirl of champagne, rose- gold & pink shades, which gives me a natural glow without looking like a streak of light on the face. Absolutely loving this one...a must-try!! Wearing Rose Champagne Glow HERE.

5. Wet 'n' Wild ColorIcon 8 eyeshadows palette in 'Comfort Zone 738'

'Comfort Zone' has been featured in a lot of Wet 'n' Wild must-try lists. I was very excited to try out this palette & it definitely hasn't let me down. Typically Wet 'n' Wild, this palette comes coded with Browbone, Eyelid, Crease & Definer shades, so it becomes easy for a beginner to try them's a no brainer! For those who love to experiment, you can swap around the shades to create  different looks :-) Let me know if you'd like me to do a detailed review of this product, I'd be happy to do that!!

Overall, I'm very happy with my haul...thanks again to dear V for getting these for me! There are a number of sellers on Instagram who deal in W&W products, but along with the shipping & margin, these babies turn out to be quite expensive :-( However, if you do get your hands on any of these, you will not regret it...the quality of these products is really good & can give my 'slightly high-end' alternatives, a run for their money!! :-)

Do you own any Wet 'n' Wild products? Which ones are your favourites? Do leave me your thoughts about this post too, in the comments section below.

Until the next post, Ciao!!!


  1. I m truly envious of you for being so comfortable n knowledgeable with this side of the beauty world! To me these are just pretty colours to ogle at! I wouldn't know which ones go where!
    A suggestion from me- why dont you also add a video of how you did a particular look with these? It'll be cool to see MMM (my makeup matte) do it live in front of me. Wotsay?

    1. While I love blogging & blog during my free time, shooting, editing & posting video tutorials requires much more work & commitment Purni :-) Having said that, I'd never say NEVER! ;-) hehehe maybe someday, I will have my own channel on YouTube which would have makeup tutorials, reviews, hauls, etc. It's definitely something I aspire to do & will be the next step...a BIG one..!! I'm so flattered to know you'd think I'd do a good job at videos... <3 Lots of love and hugs to you!!
