Review: Wet N Wild MegaEyes Black Creme Liner

30 Nov

The next few beauty-centric posts are gonna deal with eyeliner! Woo!

Ever since Wet N Wild revamped their products, they seem to have flooded the beauty blogging world. I can’t tell you how awesome I think this is! The fact that you can now buy necessary, quality beauty items at more than reasonable prices (especially when there’s a sale!) is so important, especially in these hard economic times.

The Wet N Wild product I’m reviewing today is the black Creme Liner from their MegaEyes line. I think it’s important to note that, while similar, this is not a gel liner like MAC Fluidline. (A misconception I was under when I bought it.) It has a slightly thicker consistency, but it is by no means difficult to work with. It’s actually quite lovely! Even using the strangely wide brush that comes with it (I don’t think the brush is that great, as you can see in the swatch it doesn’t make a thin line), the creme liner applies smoothly and easily. It dries down to a matte finish and seems to stay fairly well.

I will say that I have a problem with eyeliners in general. They all seem to melt off when put anywhere that’s not right above my upper lashline. Unfortunately this one is no different. However, I love using this when I am doing a look just for a photo. If I’m taking it off in 10 minutes anyway, wear time doesn’t matter!

It looks like an alien space ship! ^_^

NOTD: Teal of Fortune

29 Aug

Outdoors

This, like How I Me Your Magenta, was very watery, but ToF was even more difficult to work with. It pooled around my cuticles and gathered at the tips of the nail.

It did look really pretty for the 2 days I wore it (2 days until my first chip/major tip wear) and you couldn’t tell the uneven coverage in real life, but you can definitely see it in the pictures. Sad, since this is such a pretty color for a good price. I wouldn’t recommend it for the simple fact that it stains terribly! My nails were yellow/green and the tips of my fingers were blue-green for the next two days, even though I tried to get the stain off with pure acetone. Sadface.

 

Polishes Used (In Order):

1 coat of Seche Vite Base Coat

4 coats Wet ‘n’ Wild Teal of Fortune

1 coats Seche Vite Top Coat

Polishes Used (In Order):

1 coat of Beauty Secrets Base Coat

4 coats of Wet n Wild How I Met Your Magenta

1 coat of OPI I Lily Love You

1 coat Seche Vite Top Coat

 

While they are totally gorgeous, the flakies in I Lily Love You have a nasty habit of lifting at the ends and sticking up on the nail, even through top coat, so be really careful when you apply it so that everything lays flat. The careful application is totally worth it, as you can tell from the picture without flash!

NOTD: How I Met Your Magenta

30 Jul

It’s no secret I am obsessed with the TV show “How I Met Your Mother”. So when I saw this, I couldn’t resist. Seriously, I tried and couldn’t. It’s a medium pink with yellow-gold shimmer (see top picture). The formula is watery, so it took waaaaaay too many coats to get it opaque, but I don’t care. It was under $2 and it’s a gorgeous shade with an awesome finish. Be careful to make an even application, though! You can see in the top picture on my ring finger – a stray brush stroke resulted in uneven coverage and a thick polish line. Boo.

I still love it.

Polishes Used (In Order):

1 coat of Beauty Secrets Base Coat

(No top coat. I really likes the satin finish on this!)

FOTD: Fashion Flower

This look is SO spring! I am in ❤ with the colors, the pale, perfect features, and basically everything about this photo. Even though she kind of looks like the carefully prepared dead girl getting ready to float off into the depths of the ocean as her tribe looks on with sadness. *ahem* Moving on.

Loving the Fashion Flower Lipgelee! I decided to make a FOTD inspired by the colors of the Fashion Flower Collection.
