Swatches: NEW Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Palette

Since its #10orlesstuesday on my Instagram Page, what better way to celebrate than with two NEW Wet N Wild Eyeshadow palettes. Per the Wet N Wild website: “This palette of ten neutral shades is anything but ordinary. You’ve got every bronze-hued shade that tickles your fancy, from mattes to shimmers to satins to sparkles. Includes a jet-milled base, silicone technology, and pearl density to make them uber-pigmented, smooth like silk, and last for hours” I picked up both palettes available in the collection and guess what? They are only $6.99 a piece! The palettes can be found on the Wet N Wild Website or you can buy them at your local Walgreens. The two shades available are Bare Necessities and Nude Awakenings.

I wanted to swatch them right away and get them up on the blog so you can see how beautiful the colors are. I am new to Wet N Wild Eyeshadow but I am obsessed with their Color Icon blushes so I can not wait to dig in and play (so stay tuned). While swatching the palettes the shadows did not seem dry or non pigmented. I did not press my finger in heavy either to get my swatches so first impression based off swatches is pretty darn good!

SHADE: Bare Necessities – I personally love the three gold/bronze shades in this palette. The color range is perfect for an every day neutral to a darker grey smokey eye.

SHADE: Nude Awakening – This palette also offers a day to night look but has more rose tones in it. So if you prefer this type of smokey eye I would go with this one. I just prefer more golds and bronze tones but I probably should branch out more with color lol Who else has this problem!???

So what do you think? Will you be picking up either of these palettes? I hear so many fabulous things about the Color Icon EyeShadow Palettes from my friends and fellow bloggers so I will be picking some up of those as well.

Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! Happy $10 OR LESS TUESDAY!!!!!

A BEAUTY APP EVERY BEAUTYLOVER MUST HAVE

Have you heard of Lovelyloot App?  Lovelyloot is a Beauty app where you can “save all your beauty products in one place! Keep track of the items you love, remember the ones you want to try and never forget a product again!”  It’s pretty much an app that every beauty lover needs and the best part it’s FREE! I know you may be thinking “I  already use Pinterest so why would I need this app?” I thought that at first as well. However Lovelyloot is the best approach for product organization.

I have been using the app for some time now and I am in love. Not only as a beauty lover but as a beauty blogger this app has kept me so organized with products I want to try, review for my blog and buy of course!!! Whether you have a wish list of luxury items to buy, a list skincare products that didn’t work for you or a list of lipsticks to buy the Lovelyloot app has you covered!  Let’s take a look at three lists I have created to give you a better idea of how this app will work for you!

Lovelyloot App - Beauty App

Here is my link to my luxury wish list. Yes you can share your links! How fun is that?!!!?? Hello birthday lists made easy!!! I have so many luxury items I want to try and seeing them all in one space will help me budget my money as to what I truly want to buy first for myself. You can search for items you want directly on the app and add them or on your next trip to Sephora you can just take pictures of your must have luxury items and add them to your list! I have also taken screen shots of pictures on Instagram and then add the image to the app and in the notes wrote down info such as brand and shade name. Super easy and organized!

I absolutely wish I had this app a few months ago because I was at MAC swatching blushes to get ideas for my Custom Palette. When I started to purchase blushes a couple weeks ago I could not remember one that I swatched that I fell in love with. If I had the Lovelyloot App I could have just snapped a picture of the name and put it in my luxury wishlist! How many times has this happened to you?

As a blogger I love finding $10 or less items for my blog and Instagram. Lovelyloot makes it simple for me to create a list of items I want to buy and try that are $10 or less or even take pictures of products from my own collection so I dont forget to showcase them on Tuesdays!! If I see fab finds scrolling through Instagram or if I am at the drugstore  I can either search on the app and add it or snap a picture of it at the store and it’s all set and organized for me in one place! See my current $10 or less wish list items here. Another great way I am using this as a blogger is for my Dupe List Series on my blog. I have created a list of items in my collection I want to dupe for future blog posts here.  Just like $10 or less beauty products I have a drugstore list as well. Drugstore products are some of my favorite so having a list of items I want to try and being able to take pictures of products I haven’t heard of (for blogger references) is perfect!

I have found this app to be extremely helpful for my blogging but it translates so well for the everyday beauty lover. My sister in law is loving it as well as my friends for all thier beauty product needs and organization. What do you think? Do you think you will be downloading this app? You can download the app here for free. I would love to hear your thoughts!

MAC Eyeshadow Swatches: My Custom Palette

I am so happy I have finally completed my custom MAC Eyeshadow Palette even though I know I will buy more! Filling up all the slots has given me a sense of fulfillment and I know each and every shade will get used which is even better. I wanted to make sure to get my MAC Eyeshadow Swatches up for you right away because every time I have posted part of the palette on my instagram account it has gotten a ton of attention and I received so many requests for swatches with shade names. So I hope you enjoy 🙂

Just as a little backstory on how all this got started. I had a ton of MAC single shadows and I had such a hard time with storage (Its now rare for me to ever by a single shadow). I also had 2 custom 4 pan palettes so I decided it was time to buy the double sided palette with 2 inserts. I searched on YouTube for “How to Depot MAC Eyeshadows” and started my project. A fabulous videos is right here (side note I tried the flat iron but I used a lighter and tongs so I would not burn my fingers) I also bought small magnets from Micheals similar to these. The depotting was not hard at all and once I was done I submitted my empties for the back to MAC recycle program to get my free lippies. See BACK to MAC information here.

There are still so many shades I want and I did discover some of my eyeshadows are old and patchy and need to be replaced. I did not edit these pictures at all to make sure colors were true. Some of the shimmer/frost in the shades were hard to pick up on camera as well as my lighter shades.

Olay Eyes Collection

“Introducing The Olay Eyes, a collection designed to treat the 5 eye aging patterns that affect 95% of woman. Whether your concern is dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles, sagging or all of it, Olay now has a solution to making your eyes look ageless” If you have been following my skincare journey you know that my eyes have been such a problem area. Dark Circles, Puffiness and dryness all came with a vengeance after my son was born! Trying out eye products has been something I have fallen in love with because typically no matter the ingredient I typically have no reactions so its fun to see what works and what does not! To read other skincare blog posts see them here, here and here.

When I received this package from Olay three products instantly stood out to me. I will include a mini review with them along withe the product breakdown of this fabulous collection!  Lets get started!!!

The Ultimate: Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream

  • Dark Circles
  • Wrinkles
  • Puffiness
  • Supercharged with peptides & vitamins
  • Color Correcting technology

This is super creamy and moisturizing and does indeed give you some color under your eyes to hide dark circles. I really didn’t notice a difference in puffiness but over time the look of my eyes looked more awake!

Olay Eyes

The Brightener: Olay Eyes Illuminating Eye Cream

  • Dark Circles
  • dual swirl formula
  • light reflecting pigments
  • gel to moisturize

This has a subtle illuminating affect and does make your under eyes appear brightened. I would mix this one with the Ultimate eye cream for maximum affect. However I do prefer my Origins Gin Zing Eye Cream  over these as it just worked better for me.

Olay Eyes

 

The Depuffer: Olay Eyes De-Puffing Eye Roller

  • Eye bags
  • Instantly Reduces puffiness
  • precision micro rollers that cool & massage skin

Out of all the 3 I tried this was my favorite. You instantly feel the magic of the rollers and massaging them on your skin feels amazing. My eyes do tend to be puffy in the morning in general but after rough nights of sleep (mom life!) they have become worse! You can see the results and feel the results. I will be repurchasing this product!

The next two I did not try. I felt the problem areas these two eye creams tackle were for more mature skin so I gave them to my mother in law and just like me she is an avid Olay user and fan!

  • Deep Wrinkles
  • Patent Formula
  • Pro – Retinol
  • Diminishes crows feet in just 4 weeks  – Shop Here
