Wet N Wild
Wet N Wild has a new mascara, Lash Renegade, which features a ball at the end. These have been a trend in more expensive mascaras. The packaging makes it look almost like a perfume bottle. But minus one other mascara, I generally don't like WNW mascaras. This one isn't bad. It is growing on me!
Liquid Catsuit--Matte liquid lipsticks are still popular are this is WNW's version. I only have one shade, but this one is really patchy and hard to apply. You'll see at the end of this post. But wear time is decent and it's not crumbly like some liquid lipsticks. I might purchase another shade to give it another fair shot. Give Me Mocha is what is pictured above and it's too dark for me.
Other new WNW makeup: Photo Focus foundation and concealer that I skipped since I have dry skin. There are also some new liquid sponge compact contour and highlighters but I couldn't find them.

My eyes were immediately drawn to the Magnif'eyes Shadow palettes, and there are 3 of them, but they really do look similar. Pictured are Grunge Glamour, London Nudes, and Keep Calm & Wear Gold. There are a couple of matte shades out of the 12 and I wish there were more. Despite that, I really liked these palettes. Pics at the end.
Jordana is my under-the-radar brand because it's not always easy to find (I got these at Walgreens. Try Kmart or online.) but they're not bad for the price. The Sculpt N Go is a basic cream sculpting stick that comes in a few shades. I liked it since it's more towards the cooler browns. The Glow N Go is a strobing stick that comes in 3 shades--I have shade 2--and I really like this one. I accidentally bought 2 of the same shade, so I'm on the hunt to get the others. I like these better on dry skin for staying power.

Milani had several new releases! They have a liquid highlight on one end and a cream sculpting stick on the other. Both products are not bad, but not sure I'd repurchase.
The concealer is tiny but packs a punch as a highlighting concealer.
Prime Light is a gorgeous highlighting primer that rivals one from MAC's Strobe Cream. Should I do a comparison?
The setting spray boasts 16 hours, but I haven't been able to test it that long! ;) It's been good so far. I don't have oily skin and the weather has been cool, so I'm interested to see how this one does in the spring.
Isn't this gorgeous? I saved it for the end. This is a face and eye strobe palette. You can use the shades individually or together. The copper looks best on my eyes but darker complexions can use it as a blush or highlight. The blush section in the lower left-hand corner is pretty but small. The highlight is decent and can be worn as shadow or highlight. I want all of them!
I had to put on ALL THE THINGS to show them to you. Please excuse these pics--I had the stomach flu so I wasn't really going for perfection here. And I wanted to show the true essence of these products. On my eyes is the Rimmel palette in London Nudes Calling. I'm also wearing the WNW mascara. On my face I had on a bb cream since I was headed to work and didn't want a full-coverage look like I normally show on the blog. On my cheeks is the Milani palette. I did highlight with the Jordana but it is such a pretty natural highlight that it doesn't photograph well. On my lips is the WNW Liquid Catsuit. Before you read me for my lipstick, I wanted to show how difficult this was to apply--so uneven!
And here's the makeup from the front. Overall, I was pleased with everything I purchased. Some of it wouldn't be repurchase status, but all of it was worthy of trying. Stay tuned for makeup from Maybelline and Revlon next week! Hopefully, I'll be back to a full week of posts!
Which of these would you try?
Snow this weekend, so I'm staying in with no plans!
Does my Instagram show up in your feed? I'm getting super frustrated over mine not showing up.
