As you know, I love posting both negative and positive reviews because I find them equally helpful. Negative reviews seldom make an appearance because I tend to research products
obsessively thoroughly prior to purchase. And many times I pass along products I don’t like and forget to photograph them before they leave my hands. Here’s one of the major disappointments of the past few months…
I went through a strong glitter kick during the start of 2015 and when I saw the Wet’n’Wild Color Icon Glitter Singles I’d thought I’d give them a try. My expectations were not too high, drugstore cream glitters tend to be under performing, but at $1 each it wasn’t much of a loss. Well… I suppose the pictures above already gave it away. These were terrible. They were sort of creamy/greasy on the pan, but I had hopes they would set once applied. Two-in-one glitters with a base would make the process of wearing cosmetic glitter so much easier because I wouldn’t have to separately purchase (and apply) a glitter adhesive and then the actual glitter. However, these Wet’n’Wild ones did not deliver good results.
On the left (in the image above), I wore Brass over a primer and powder eyeshadow. After about 30 minutes, it has creased horribly and almost all of the glitter had gathered into my eyelid fold. Since I didn’t want to risk this product ruining my makeup again, I wore Groupie alone on a bare lid to see if it would wear just as badly as Brass. Unsurprisingly, after about 10 minutes the same thing happened: a creased greasy mess.
So don’t waste your money! Yeah, they only cost $1 each but I find these pretty non-redemable. I could have bought some candy or something with those $2 I wasted.
