First Impressions: Wet n Wild Fall 2016 Collection + Swatches8:33:00 PM
Wet n Wild is one of those drugstore brands that I actually get excited about Limited Edition collections. At the beginning of the summer, I reviewed the Summer collection and recently picked up a few items that launched with the new Fall Collection. This collection is called Autumn Lush and is based around fall colors of burgundy, deep teal, bronze, and all of those colors that make you think of fall.
This newest collection features colored mascaras, 2 eyeshadow trios and Liquid Lipsticks. Since I am on a cut back and I'm overloaded with mascara at the moment, I ended up scooping up the two eyeshadow trios and 2 of the four liquid lipsticks. I was super excited to try the liquid lipsticks from this brand and was kind of hyped up on that alone.

The eyeshadow trios in this collection are Violet Vixen and Plaid to The Bone. These trios remind me of Catholic school uniforms for some reason. The burgundy + cream and tan and Navy and bronze give me flashback to high school. Let's look at a few swatches.
These swatches really do the colors no justice. Both of these performed really well on the eye. The only one that swatch that disappointed me was the matte deep teal shade it in Plaid to the Bone trio. It swatched dusty, but actually built up really well on the eye. The shimmery shades in the quad are gorgeous, creamy, and pigmented. The dark shimmery color is a dark teal with bronze reflects. I can't wait to try this with a black base. This trio wore beautifully and lasted throughout the night.
I haven't had a chance to wear Velour Vixen on the eye but the colors swatched gorgeous. The lightest shade in the trio looks a little chalky when swatched, but I think it will work nicely packed over a primer. The darkest brown in this trio has glitter over a satin base, but I don't think that this will translate on the eye. The burgundy shade in this trio has a soft sheen to it and will be perfect on its own as a one color look or with the other colors in the trios.
The Look I created using Plaid to the Bone and My Tulips Are Sealed:

As I said before, the liquid lipsticks that I picked up really impressed me. These retail for $2.99 and you get .18 oz of product. You can find them at Walgreens, Kmart and on the Wet n Wild website The formula of the this lipstick is a hybrid of creamy and liquidy and dries to a flat comfortable matte finish. Literally, the swatches lasted through two showers. I also wore these out on Saturday and Sunday and they lasted the whole day. These are totally kiss proof which I love. The applicator on these are a large doe foot applicator that comes to a point so they are very easy to control and spread on lips evenly.These are not patchy at all.
How Fleek is Your Love is a cool red orange color. Once this one dries down, it will not budge. I wore it out to dinner on Saturday and loved how comfortable it felt with out being too drying and didn't peel off my lips, which is always a win for me.
Too Tulip Too Quit is a deep blue toned fuchsia and reminds me a lot of "Flat Out Fabulous" retro matte lipstick from Mac and More Better from Colourpop is also a close comparison. I wore this shade a few times this week and got so many compliments. I absolutely love how it looks and performs on my lips.
Overall I was really impressed with this collection. The colors are fall appropriate and perform really well on the eye. I cannot wait to use the other eye trio and incorporate this into my fall/winter makeup routine.
