Wet N Wild: Comfort Zone Colour Eyeshadow Collection

The Comfort Zone eyeshadow palette is one of those products that I heard a lot about from American beauty bloggers but as Wet N Wild is difficult to access in Australia I had never tried it.   When I happened across Wet N Wild products on Crush Cosmetics I purchased the Comfort Zone for AU$12 out of curiosity and I am glad that I did.

A word of warning, the cheap packaging of this palette  is a little bit off-putting but it is not indicative of the quality of the eyeshadow.  I knew from other reviews that the shadows were supposedly lovely but truly, these are really nice.  They are soft and pigmented and finely milled and they blend so well.  I do need an eyeshadow primer with these but with it they wear well and don’t crease.

While I find these colours very appropriate for everyday wear, one point to note is that there are no matte colours in this palette.  There are three distinct eyeshadow formulas here including a shimmer, glitter and duo chrome.  The shimmer and duo chrome formulas are beautiful and these are the shadows that I reach for when I use this palette.  The duo chrome shade (which is marked as the ‘definer’ shade in the Green tones), is really beautiful and the main reason why I purchased this palette.  This duo chrome has a red/brown base with a blue/green flash.  So cool!

The Neutral tone ‘definer’ and Green tone ‘crease’ shades are the two glitter shades.  I don’t enjoy these as much.  They look gorgeous in the pan but when worn both look very similar.  They are both dark on the eye and the glitter doesn’t transfer that well and/or I get glitter fallout – nothing major but enough to be a bit annoying.  If these two shades could be replaced with a couple of nice matte crease shades this would be a perfect palette for me.

My last thought – I can’t imagine using these colours according to the labels provided by Wet N Wild… I’m not about a glitter eyeshadow in my crease but maybe that is just me 😉

If you haven’t tried the Comfort Zone palette from Wet N Wild I think it is definitely worth a go.  Wet N Wild are a cruelty-free brand and at AU$12 this is a budget-friendly purchase.

Have a great day!

Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Colours

I have always tended to opt for lip gloss for work as lipsticks didn’t have the lasting power to be practical for me.  I just don’t have time to re-apply repeatedly throughout the day.  All of that changed this year when I came across the brand Wet n Wild which is a drug store brand in America, but one which is a bit difficult to access in Australia.  The online store Crush Cosmetics does sell this range though so after trawling through youtube and blog swatches I decided to try Wet n Wild’s Megalast Lip Colours for myself and since then I have gone back and purchased nearly the entire range of these lipsticks!  Wet n Wild are a Peta-certified, cruelty-free brand and at AU$5  from Crush Cosmetics they are kind on the budget.  The Megalast Lip Colours are such good quality with such great staying-power that they have become my everyday lip product of choice for work.

These lipsticks are described by the company as ‘semi-matte with a 4-hour wear time which produce a velvety colour that doesn’t cake, feather or bleed.’  I can definitely confirm that these have a great wear time and a velvety texture.  I have not found them to feather or bleed, even the bright colours, but they will cake up a bit if you don’t smooth off the first layer before applying the fresh coat.  Saying that, the lipsticks in this range can be a little hit or miss.  I have found some of the darker, brighter shades to be exceptional in all areas while some of the lighter, nude shades can be a little more fiddly to work with.  Although these lipsticks can be a little drying at times I try to avoid applying them over a lip balm as that seems to interrupt the effective application to the lips and leads to a more patchy wear.  For the lighter shades a lip liner certainly helps to ensure a more even, long wear.  Generally I reapply these lipsticks once after my lunch break and otherwise they last really well throughout the work day.  To be honest my greatest complaint would be the packaging.  The lipsticks don’t twist all the way down into the tube so I find that unless I am REALLY careful I tend to nick the colour when removing or replacing the cap which is really annoying.  It is nice to be able to see the colours when making a selection though so I suppose it is just something to be aware of.

I love these lipsticks.  They are by far my FAVOURITE budget-friendly, cruelty-free matte lipsticks.  They are super pigmented with such a long wear time which makes them super practical and for just AU$5 each you can’t go wrong really.  If you are in Australia and would like to try these for yourself you can find them at Crush Cosmetics here: Crush Cosmetics

If you know any other vendors that sell Wet n Wild products in Australia I would love to hear about them so please leave a comment below 🙂

Have a fantastic day!
