Hi, lovelies! I was originally going to review two of these products individually but I found that they didn’t actually work for me. I love making recommendations on my blog, but I don’t enjoy writing negative reviews as much. I decided to include them both in one post instead. As always, these are just my opinions. What doesn’t work for me may work for you (and vice versa). The two products I didn’t like this past month were:
I hadn’t had a bad experience with Wet’n’Wild until now. I bought this eyeliner with high hopes because their original Black Gel Liner gets raved about often. First of all, I don’t love the color. I was hoping for a warm toned brown. Instead it comes off very grey and cool toned which looks like faded black liner on the eyes. That’s just a personal preference though. The deal breaker for me is that the formula is hard to work with. It’s too wet. Whenever you try to go over a line, the existing line slides and looks patchy. I’d rather pay a bit more for a L’Oreal or Maybelline gel/cream liner (and those are actually really good!)
I actually bought this months ago and have been trying to make it work since. After 4 unsuccessful attempts, I gave up and decided I just don’t like it. It’s nothing like any cream blush I’ve used before (in a bad way!) The formula is slippery and doesn’t adhere to the skin well. Whenever I try to blend it, it goes a bit patchy in some places because it slides around too much. Plus, I think the finish is too dewy. It never sets and I feel it makes me look greasy. It sits on the skin and doesn’t look natural. It’s ironic because it’s everything a cream blush shouldn’t be. It wears off easily and doesn’t look more natural than a powder. It’s such a shame because the color is beautiful. For the price I much prefer the formula of the NYX Cream Blushes (review) and those are cheaper!
The rest of my makeup (products I do like): Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer, Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer in 53, Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, Milani Shadow Eyez Pencil in Champagne Toast (review), Wet’n’Wild Rose Champagne Glow Shimmer Palette (highlighter), Collection 2000 Super Size Fat Lash Mascara, and Revlon Prim Rose Lipstick.
