When the new LE Fall Wet 'n Wild collection came out, and people started posting comparisons to the UD Naked 3 palette, I knew I wanted to try them. Don't get me wrong, I have the original Naked palette, and it's a great palette. But I wanted to see if these rose-toned neutrals were worth another $50, or if I'd be okay with the two $4 Wet 'n Wild palettes.
I actually really like these palettes! Wet 'n Wild definitely has both hits and misses with their eye shadows, but I think these are a hit. Here's a closer look at the eye look I did with the Wet 'n Wild Melrose at Night palette.
Um...I know I used a foundation, but it didn't seem to make it into the picture. I've been using powder foundation this summer, for the most part, so it's either Ageless Derma Pressed Mineral Foundation, or the It Cosmetics one. Also, I used mascara. Was I drunk when I put this together? Where's the mascara?
I'm hard pressed to use anything other than my Cover FX stable of primers, though. I haven't found a foundation they won't work with, and I love that they are skincare as well as makeup. The blemish primer is proving especially useful these days, and because the eye primer is also a treatment, I put it over my lid and under my eye, as well.
I finally gave away that Physician's Formula brow definer. The design just bummed me out. I hated having to replace the cap whenever I wanted to switch to the brush. I'm much happier with my Too Faced Bulletproof Brows.
The blush, Maybelline Mineral Power in Fresh Plum, is one I've had for a while, and thought it complimented the eyeshadows well.
I have tried the UD setting spray, this mist from Pur, and the ELF setting spray. I like them all, but the Urban Decay sprayer beats them all, hands down. The Pur spraying mechanism just douses me, which wastes product and is annoying because I can't put my glasses back on until my face is dry. So, for now, I'm back to using the UD spray full-time, and I'll refill the bottle with something else when its done.
I also did a nail look to go with the outfit I'm wearing. I started with Echo Dark from this same LE collection. It's a dark navy jelly matte. What? yeah.
I did random brushstrokes with Revlon Spirit and another color from this LE collection, Careful, it's Vine-tage. a matte grape.
And, here's the final result!
The whole look, sorta:
Have you picked up anything from this collection? What do you think?
