NEW Wet N Wild ColorIcon 10-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes

NEW THINGS! NEW MAKEUP!

Look, I have a review of these! I made a good ol’ order on Wet N Wild’s website (here) when I heard they dropped a bunch of new products, because you know, I had to get my grabby hands on them.

The biggest news was that they redid and released all of their eyeshadow palettes, with a new configuration and new formulas. I have the 10-palettes in this review, that are slowly phasing out their big 8 pan palettes.

I have all 4 of them and they cost $4.99 each – just like your old 8 pans.

 

Let’s get into it, because it’s going to be long, with lots of pictures.

Sinful Colors ‘Bayou Babes’ Sinful Shine Collection

Hello everyone! I’m back! If you follow my blog, or follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I posted I would be a little MIA as I was finishing my big senior project for school. And while I have a couple more days of work on it, (it’s sending out for printing Wednesday!) it’s finally slowed down and I’ve been able to write up some posts in the breaks. What was it? Well I created a 40 page magazine about the food & drink in my town here! I interviewed everyone, wrote the articles, got the photos and designed it all – and now it’s going to be displayed in our art museum with the rest of the graduating seniors’ work. It’s crazy to believe it got done – and soon I can sleep again!

But what I really couldn’t believe was the amount of support that poured in from the beauty and Instagram community. It was incredible. My heart was so full from all the wishing of luck and sweet messages you all delivered. Ever since I joined this community, I’ve found nothing but open arms and new friends and support as we all just talk about the things we love. So I want to thank all of you who supported me – I couldn’t have stayed sane without this.

But now, I’m back and ready to post more than ever! Since this project is (pretty much) done, I’ll have more time to devote to blogging – and applying for a real adult job after graduation – AH. We’re not thinking about that right now. We’re thinking about pretty nail polish.

SO Sinful Colors put out 3 collections all at once, underneath a big theme of “Spring Trippin'”. There are 2 collections in their normal ‘Sinful Colors’ line called ‘Desert Divas’ – with the ‘Stoned Crystal Shimmer’ finish (I NEED THESE AND HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO TRACK THEM DOWN. I might have to put out a call for someone to find them for me), and the ‘Chic Chicas’ collection of creams – again, another one that I haven’t been able to find (my Walgreen supply has been TERRIBLE).

And then there’s a new Sinful Shine collection – which I actually did find, and am talking about today. This is an 8 shade collection – but there’s 5 new shades and 3 repromotes. The repromotes didn’t interest me too much, so I just┬ápicked up the new shades.

Like I mentioned, there’s 5 new shades, and they’re all this wonderfully shimmery finish. You can also tell them with their themed-New Orleans names. Since they’re the Sinful Shines, these retail for $2.99 a piece.

So let’s get into the shades – and back to blogging!

Swatch/Review: Orly ‘La La Land’ Spring 2017 Collection

SPRING IS ON ITS WAY. Well, that’s what I’m going to pretend anyways as all of these beautiful soft spring collections come to us. Welcome to my first spring post!

Today I have the Orly ‘La La Land’ collection, as based on the movie of the same name that just came out. I HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET SO NO SPOILERS. This also means I don’t know exactly what the names are referencing to, oops. Whatever they’re pretty colors and new nail polish so duh I got them.

I purchased mine off transdesign.com, as with nearly all of the new collections I get.

This is a 6 piece collection, as most Orly collections seem to be. There are 5 creamy pastel shades and then one shimmery topper.

Hauling! – Birthday/ChristmasDrugstore Makeup

This is a LONG one. So hold up, and get ready to go. Like get yourself some coffee and just be ready to hang out.

Before I started writing this, I told myself, to make myself feel better, that I was gifted things and didn’t spend that much money. But now that I’m looking at it, I realize I have a problem and just am using the excuse of the holidays. It’s fine.

It’s safe to say I went eye palette crazy. I LOVE eyeshadow palettes. They’re honestly my favorite makeup product, so I just can’t get enough of them. I didn’t include swatches because I’ll be doing more in-depth reviews of them later on.

Enough chatter, let’s just get into the hauling.
