I haven't given as much attention to my blog as I would like and I admit I've been sort of slacking and posting really late if I post at all. Secondly, work seems to be draining me more lately...new management, new workflow, new office. We just had a co-worker that worked at the clinic for 13 years who just lost her job because of the new workflow reconstruction. My boss is going to be on medical leave for 8 to 12 weeks. I am already feeling the pain and dread of the months to come. I guess I'll have to find some ways to keep my spirit up.
I wanted to share two makeup looks that I did with the new Wet N Wild and tell you what I think of the palette.
I used the eyeshadows in the order they are labeled. I'm not too crazy about the shimmery light green on the brow bone but it's not as bad as it looks. Personally, just not how I would wear this look. Sometimes, I wonder if there have been any thoughts put into how the colors are coordinated together and if Wet N Wild even tried the looks before they sell the palette.
This look is a little softer. I applied the shimmery light green on the lids, the matte medium green on the crease, and the dark shimmery green on the outer V. On the brow bone, I had to improvise another color not from the palette.
The eyelid color is soft but a bit powdery and the pigmentation is ok. I did have to pack it on in order to show.
The crease color has good pigmentation but I find blending it a bit harder. I'm usually not in favor of shimmery eyeshadows on the crease but because it's pretty dark, it kinda worked.
The browbone color is on the sheer but it's soft.
Overall, I would use the colors together but not necessarily in the way it is labeled. Quality and pigmentation of the palette is pretty average, which was a bit of a bummer. It seems like the quality of the new Wet N Wild palettes are just not as they used to be. What do you think?
