Wet N Wild and Jordana New 2015 products

Picked up a small haul of new 2015 products. I'm not even sure if it's really a haul, but I just feel like not many of the new products for this year interested me. Matte lipstick seems to be the big trend at the drugstore this year. Since I have already found my HG matte lipstick in the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms I didn't feel like trying too many of the new matte lipsticks. I did pick up two of the Jordana Modern Matte lipsticks.

Since they are so cheap ($2.49) I decided that I could splurge and test them out. The two colors I picked up where Matte It Girl and Matte Style.

Matte It Girl is a slightly more blue toned pink color. I found these lipsticks to be pretty opaque. The colors didn't match up too well with how they looked in the tubes though. 

Next I got Matte Style. In the tube it looked like it would be a good true red. On my lips it has a bit of a pink undertone. I was disappointed since I was hopping for a more rich red. 

I haven't worn these for a long period of time yet so i'm not sure about the wear time. They did go on pretty smooth. They have a bit of a sticky feel. I'm going to test these out more hopefully

Next I got Fergie for Wet N Wild Come Correct Celebrity Concealer. I couldn't really find any info on it but decided to grab it any way. I picked up the second of three colors, Medium Golden. I found that it's very similar to the IT Bye Bye Under Eye. So I swatched them next to each other. Here I have from left: IT Bye Bye Under Eye Neutral Medium blended,  Come Correct Medium Golden blended and then Fergie and IT unblended. 

These both are too light for my NC25 skin, though I tend to like my concealer to match my skin instead of highlighting. IT was more pink and Fergie was more yellow.  I found that the Fergie conceler had a much creamier feel when blending, the IT one had a bit more of a tug. I'm going to go back tomorrow and get the darker Fergie color and test out the wear time. I will also swatch it with the Tan color of Bye Bye Under Eye. 

Hope this helps!

Amazing deal!

I know I haven't posted on here in forever but I found this amazing deal today so I had share!

So a while back maybelline came out with some new limited edition eye studio pallets and color show nail polish.
Today I was walking around Walgreens and I was looking at the sale end caps and I found a bin of make up and I squealed when I saw these amazing gems!!

I read Nouveau Cheap's review of the maybelline Eyestudio in Olive Martini and I wanted to buy it but I don't like buying things for full price so I missed out on it. So i was super happy so see this on sale for 2.63!!!!! The normal price for it at my Walgreens was 10.49 so I saved 7.86 on this.
Next up is the Color Show nail polish in Boho Gold. As soon as I saw swatches of this I knew I had to have it. If you haven't seen swatches of it go look at some! The original price was 4.99 but I got it for.......62 cents!!!
The best part was that Maybelline is buy 1 get one for %50 this week and it applied to this! So thats why I got the nail polish or 62 cents. ALSO I had a dollar off of Maybeline so I saved even more!
Overall for both of these I think I payed about 2.25 for both of these!! I am just so excited about this. If you have a Walgreens near you definitely run over and see if you can find these amazing deals!

Barefoot in blue

So a while ago Essie and Toms was having a contest where they gave away 15,000 polishes over 15 days and apparently I won because I got my polish today!

This promotion was for the One Day without shoes event happening April 10 where people are supposed to go barefoot to raise awareness of the children who don't have shoes all over the world.

This limited edition nail polish is called Barefoot in Blue. I haven't tried it yet but I will very soon!

Did anyone else get this polish and if so how are you liking it?

Limited Wet N Wild +Bonus

I ended up going to pick up the Wet N Wild limited edition Fauna collection today. While I was there I saw that they had some of the Wet n Wild Ice baby nail colors so I picked one up! I didn't get any of these when they where out around christmas so I was excited to see them. The one I got is called 24 Carats. Finally I went to Ross last night and I saw that they had one Physicians Formula Healthy Wear™ SPF 50 Tinted Moisturizer laying around for $5.99 so I had to get it! I LOVE the Healthy Wear powder foundation so I really wanted to try this out. Still testing it but so far it's a keeper :]

(Please ignore the turned around lip gloss and bad background :p)

That completes my latest buys. Sorry for my lack of posts lately, I have been really busy! I have another post about Revlon Lip Butters that I plan to post soon so check back later.
