Wet n Wild Makeup Review

Wet n Wild Makeup Review

Wet n Wild is a brand common to our American counterparts but a brand that is increasingly difficult to get hold of here in the UK. When I was on holiday over in Florida I definitely didn’t want to give up the chance to pick up a few of their products.

A bit of a background about the brand. They are a completely cruelty free makeup brand that started in New York in 1979 before relocating to California in 2003. The brand is easily available in most American ‘drugstores’ and a very reasonable price! Nothing I bought was over like $7!

In this post I’m going to be going through some of the products I bought and my opinions of them.


Photo Focus Foundation

Foundation is one of the most important aspects of makeup and getting the perfect one can be difficult. I was interested to see how this foundation applied and wore throughout the day as it has such a low retail price of $5.99. I did manage to find a shade that matched my pale skin which proved difficult with other American beauty brands. The foundation comes in a square bottle that has a spatula in it. Clever idea, I know. The spatula is helpful to getting enough product out however my germaphobic ways lead me to question how sanitary it is to apply straight to your face. I choose to apply a bit to the back of my hand  in order to try and limit contamination. Generally it is a good foundation. It applies nicely with both a beauty blender and a brush. The foundation is very light but has a medium kind of coverage. The formula is a glowy consistency and can feel a little greasy but once set with a powder is perfect. The downside to this product is the scent. The perfume is strong. Think the apple scent of Alberto Balsam mixed into a skin product. For the price though, it is a very good foundation.


MegaLast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick

This lipsticks are amazing. Honestly one of the best lipsticks I have ever tried and for less than $5 it is such a great deal. The pigmentation of these lipsticks is so good. They apply incredibly opaque with just one swipe and as the name would suggest last for such a long time. The colours are stunning and suit all different skintones. I picked up two but wish I had bought more! The range of colours isn’t particularly broad but there are still plenty to have some choice. The colours I purchased were ‘Rebel Rose’ and ‘Nudist Peach’. They were the two most nude/neutral tones. Although I like both I would have to say that I slightly prefer Nudist Peach just as I feel it goes better with my skin and blue eyes. Peach colours pop on pale skin and it looks amazing with a neutral eye and a light layer blush. The lipsticks feel very comfortable on the lips but can cling on to dry patches as many matte lipsticks would but a quick layer of lip balm underneath will sort this right out! The packaging feels so premium it reminds me of the Jeffree Star lipstick packaging. For such a cheap product they certainly deliver when it comes to appearance. It has a doe foot applicator which a tapered tip that allows you to get right into the nooks and crannies of your lips with ease! I really want to buy some more shades of these so I think another trip to the USA is needed! (any excuse for me)

MegaGlo Contouring Palette

A cool contour shade is essential for someone like me with a complexion rivalling casper the ghost. I really struggle to find any shades that don’t look orange or too warm as it can take a nice makeup look to a bit of a makeup mockery. Contouring is a tricky skill as it is so if you’re using poor products its going to make your task 10 times harder. With this contour palette I’ve found that it is incredibly easy to apply and blend it looks nice on the face and doesn’t bunch up like other products I have tried. It gives a chiseled look to the cheeks but could also be used to add a bit of warmth to the rest of the face if you were to use it as a bronzer. The size of the palette is also massive. This is necessary when it comes to contouring as the brushes used a typically large. As with the other Wet n Wild products, the price is very reasonable for the product you receive. The contour shade is very pigmented which is even better so a little goes a long way. The highlighter isn’t my favourite as it is matte, I tend to use it to set my under eyes. It brightens slightly but isn’t anything magical.

Large Eyeshadow Brush

The colour scheme on these brushes are every bloggers best wish! The pink and white makes it look so aesthetically pleasing and perfect for the instagrams! This brush is perfect as an all round eyeshadow brush. It fits into the crease perfectly and would allow you to blend colours in easily. It also has handy little grooves in the brush handle which means that it is easy to hold and it allows for a variety of grips on the brush. I have also checked and the grooves will work for left handed people!! This brush is quickly becoming one of my favourite eyeshadow brushes and comes with me wherever I go. It works out at costing less than £2 and my only regret is that I didn’t buy all of the set. It is so soft and blends like a dream so naturally I’m lusting over the rest of the collection!

I have been very impressed with Wet n Wild’s makeup products and it really has left me wanting more! Let me know if you’ve tried any Wet n Wild products and which ones you enjoyed 🙂
