Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Retractable |I’m Feeling Gassy Again

Happy Monday morning internet friends! I hope this week treats you well, and all of your hopes and dreams come true. <— Including any and all wishes of marrying rich, and winning the lottery.

I intend to finish up all of the Wet n Wild product reviews this week, so we are going to start with another big poofter. Please keep in mind these are always my own opinions, so if these products are exactly what you are looking for, it’s all you honey. DO IT!

Ultimate Retractable Brow Pencil | Price: $6.29 CAD

ClaimsInsta-worthy! Fill in and define your brows with our unique triangular pencil tip. It creates strokes small enough to look like your finest hairs and sharpens the edges of those brows with rub-resistant pigments. Brush and blend it all out with the pencil’s built-in spoolie. When you’re done, the tip retracts for quick-and-easy storage in your makeup bag.

The only positive I will give this product, is the spoolie. High five for a good quality spoolie. IMG_7561.JPG

But here in lies my real issue. WHY IS THIS TRIANGLE SO BIG? I find this near impossible to work with unless I want to look like a crazy sharpie eyebrow lady. Which works for some but not for me.  Continue reading “Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Retractable |I’m Feeling Gassy Again”

Shade Range 


My Thoughts

I really liked these, and the wide array of shades they came in. They have a standard size doe foot applicator and went on flawlessly. The packaging is sleek and compact, and looks like it would ring in at a higher price point than $6. As for the claims that it they provide long wearing vivid colour and have a comfortable wear? Vivid colour… Check… Long wearing…. Half Check…. Comfortable wear… Half Check.

It’s not fair to call them uncomfortable because they aren’t, but to me something that is claiming to be comfortable is something that I should not be aware of. Throughout the day as these wore, I could feel them, I knew the product was on my lips and I could feel where it was starting to fade.

I thought based on the swatch that Berry Recognize would be patchy going onto the lips but it was definitely not. After one full swipe of colour I was good to go, and Flame of the Game hit it out of the park on pigment.

I purchased the shades Flame of the Game, and Berry Recognize. Swatches and application are available in my Full Face of Wet n Wild Products. IMG_2922.JPG

The Kiss Test 

I could NOT BELIEVE there was no transfer on my DZ boy! That is incredible, I kissed him about five times, all over his face, and there is not one little smudgin of transfer. This seems like a random and odd test if you haven’t been here before but this is very important to me. I don’t want to have to worry about kissing my pups because I might get lip stuff all over them!

 5/5 Wet n Wild!

Wet N’ Wild Photo Focus Foundation Review

Good Morning and Happy Monday,

After my first experience doing a full face with one brand I was surprised to find some products I really loved, and some I really didn’t.

For those of you interested in the video here it is, BUT I made promises for full reviews of the products I used so I am being sure to include them here throughout the week as promised.

So let’s start from the bottom up I suppose and go straight to the face products to start the week. (I’m skipping primer because it’s not that fun to review. It goes on your skin, it feels nice. WIN!)

Shade Range: 20, ranging from Porcelain to Mahogany, in a range of under tones.  ( I purchased soft beige)

Price: $6.29

Products I’ve Changed my Mind About | Essence Lash Princess

Mascaras and I are a thing. We have the most abusive relationship you could possibly get with a makeup product. There have been many trials and tribulations, ups and downs, etc etc. I have even kicked them out of my house for months at a time.

One of the  YouTube favourites is the Essence Lash Princess, which can be purchased for about $5 at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. So I clearly picked it up because it was going to change my world. Obviously it didn’t, because as previously mentioned me and 90% of mascaras? Nope. We just don’t get along. Into the drawer it went.


Since starting shop my stash, I have been pulling out products and giving them a second chance.  HOLY HELL am I glad I did!

There is not a laundry list of products that I have made such a violent 180 on, but wowza. This elongates and adds volume while still holding an impressive curl. The brush is thin and easy to work with as well, after about three coats this is where we are at.IMG_2314.JPGIMG_2318.JPG

What are your products that you have changed your mind on? Hated at first, and loved after a revisit? This is why shopping our stashes is so important!

Rimmel Magnif’eyes Colour Edition

Good Morning all,

I picked up the Rimmel Magnif’eyes colour edition palette up earlier in the weekend, because I just can’t help myself. It’s not often you see a truly colourful palette coming from the original drugstore brands, so I thought I would give’r a shot. My thoughts are mixed, and mildly confused.

Surprising Drugstore Palette | Maybelline Burgundy Bar

It’s been awhile since I reviewed the Maybelline palettes. The Brights, Smokes, Nudes, etc… There is a line in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days when Bianca and her friend are trying to figure out the middle of being overwhelmed and underwhelmed. Could you not just be whelmed? That’s how I felt about those palettes, they worked but were nothing special. They work, but aren’t great, they essentially get the job done, and for $14 what did I want?

IMG_2254There were a few more releases in this line that had come out that I chose not to bother with, until I saw this Burgundy Bar… and wow. This is everything I wanted to see in their previous releases. It doesn’t look like much, but wow I am pleasantly surprised. I picked this up at Walmart for about $12.99, and so far it is more than worth it.



These swatches are done over Painterly Paint Pot using the brush it came with. I never understood the importance of brush swatches until about a year ago. So that is the only way I swatch now.

A First LookIMG_2263.JPG

This palette has 12 shades, and 10 of them are shimmers. The light brown and dark brown on the end of the palette are matte. I do wish there was a matte shade that was a bit lighter as a base shade, but many palettes miss the mark on this for me. I also wish there was a black/dark brown. The dark brown matte shade is just not quite dark enough, so I supplemented with the black from Lorac Pro to complete this look.

The Wear

By the end of the day, I expected creasing and fading. It wasn’t, it was almost perfect. This means it stood up to my entire day, inclusive of cleaning, playing outside with the dogs in the snow, and literally having my eyeballs licked incessantly by Athena for five mins. (Which seems to be the ultimate makeup remover).

The red and burgundy shades are very pigmented and easy to work with, and are amazing shades to create grungy 90’s looks with. (Which are some of my favourite looks). I will be spending more time this week creating looks with this palette that are more neutral, but I definitely had to bring it up now because I was to floored by it!

Thank you so much for reading 🙂 Let’s be internet friends!
