Love it or Leave it: Wet n Wild Halloween

I am not sure what has happened. Last week it was sunny and 88 degrees and this morning I woke up and it was cloudy and supposed to be in the 60s all week. I guess that means it is officially fall, and that means that Halloween is just around the corner.


Although they only just release their Midnight Mermaid collection, I walked into my local Walgreens and found four limited edition Catsuit Liquid Lipsticks for Halloween.


The Halloween collection includes for new, unique shades. From top to bottom: Boo Blu, Terrifying Tangerine, Purple Panic and Emerald City. As of right now, the only places where this collection can be found is drug stores such as CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid.


Now, the colors are clearly something new and unique for the Catsuit line. Unfortunately, I was not a huge fan of these colors or formula. I found them to be a little patchy, but they are not terrible. I also find that they are more moussey than the permanent line and do not dry down all of the way, so they are not transfer proof.

For me, personally, I do not see myself getting much use out of these. If I am going to wear a crazy color, I would prefer it to be darker like the ones in the Midnight Mermaid collection. That being said, these could be really fun for Halloween! They would be perfect for costume makeup. Since I will most likely be working in a high school on Halloween, I think I am going to skip wearing a full costume and just go with crazy makeup. I’m thinking a candy corn theme with the orange lip.

What about you? Do you see yourself in any of these colors?

Wet n Wild: Midnight Mermaid

I have been obsessed with mermaids ever since I was a little girl. I can remember spending summers in our pool with my cousin playing mermaid and trying to swim like we had tails. When I first heard that Wet n Wild was releasing a mermaid collection, I knew I had to have it.


The collection has 12 items total: 4 MegaLast Metallic Liquid Catsuit Lipsticks, 4 Color Icon Metallic Liquid Eyeshadows, 3 MegaLiner Metallic Liners, and one Mermaid Highlighting Bar. The collection is limited edition and can be purchased online at Wet n Wild and Ulta as well as instore at CVS and Walgreens.


The first products are the metallic liquid lipsticks. Wet n Wild first came out with their Catsuit Liquid Lipsticks early this year. I have a full review of them here. These are part of the same line except they are a metallic matte and in more trendy colors. The first is Coral Crown which is a burnt orange metallic. Next is Harbor A Crush which is a burgundy red metallic. It is also the only shade that is not vegan. Next are the really trendy colors. Siren’s Jewel is a metallic emerald green color and Sea Seduction is a dark blue metallic. All of these shades are really beautiful and comfortable to wear. They are very pigmented and were not streaky or patchy. While the red and orange are the most wearable, I can definitely see myself wearing the blue on a girls night out. The only this is that they do slightly transfer.


I was most excited for the liquid eyeshadows. With all of the glitter, they really reminded me of the Stila Magnificent Metals and they did not disappoint. There are four different shades: Lara’s Necklace (green), Aquatic Prism (blue), Mysterious Nights (black), and Moonlight Majesty (purple). They are different colored glitter in a matching base color. However, the base color is not super opaque. These work best when placed on the top of a powder shadow. I also found that they work really well when applied with a brush, for more precision. Ther work great as glitter liner or to use as a glitter cut crease. Also, they are beautiful to use for a glittery smokey eye or to create a glitter halo effect. I think it could be fun to use for a glittery lower lash line as well. I really enjoy these and hope the Wet n Wild will add to the collection with lighter colors.


Wet n Wild has had the MegaLiners for as long as I can remember. For this collection, they decided to change it up a little. They came out with three new, limited edition metallic shades. Sea Symmetry is a beautiful green color and it is fairly pigmented. I only have to go over it once to get full opacity. Sea Dreams is a dark blue and Trident’s Shimmer is a steel grey. These are both beautiful but they take a couple of layers to get full color pay off. I really enjoy using these on their own as well as a base for the liquid eyeshadows to create a glitter liner.


The final product is the Mermaid Highlighting Bar in Midnight Moon. This product is stunning! It has the image of a mermaid tail embossed across it. The product itself it very smooth and blends out great. The color is like a gold/green with pink shimmer. It is really beautiful on paler complexions and would work on most skin tones as a great inner corner highlight.


Here are swatches of all of the products starting with the liners, lipsticks and finally the shadows.

Overall, I am very impressed with all of these products. The lipsticks are comfortable, unique and will be stunning for fall. The shadows are so much fun and a much less expensive alternative to the Stila Magnificent Metals. The liners and highlighter are a fun pop of color. I really hope that Wet n Wild continues to expand their Catsuit Liquid Lip line as well as the liquid shimmer shadows.

What trends are you most excited for as we go into fall?

Wet N Wild Catsuit Liquid Lipstick Review

I love a lipstick that can stay all day. Between work, school and my home life, I always forget to check and reapply my lipstick. I love the idea of being able to swipe on my favorite color and be able to wear in the office without a second thought. Ever since I learned about liquid lipsticks, I have been on the hub for the perfect formula. Ideally, I need something that not only stays all day but isn’t overally drying. Well, I think I’ve finally found what I’ve been searching for.

Wet n Wild is a drugstore brand sold in the US. They recently launched the Catusiy Liquid Lipstick in 13 colors: nudie patootie, nudist peach, coral corruption, pink really hard, rebel rose, give me mocha, berry recognize, nice to fuchsia, oh my dolly, flame of the game, missy and fierce, video vixen, and goth topic. I purchased all shades except for give me mocha, because it had been out of stock. 

Overall, I LOVE this formula. It is pigmented and glides on easily. The applicator is unique. It has a divet that not only picks up product, but fits the contour of your lip. Each color dries down matte completely and is transfer proof. While they are a tad drying, I find them to be very comfortable through out the day and they do not over exaggerate my lip lines. The color stays vibrate and perfect all day.

I would recommend to start by exfoliating and moisturizing your lips as well as staying hydrated. Though you can wear these alone, I would recommend using a lip liner for the darker colors. It may also be helpful to use a lip brush to apply the darker colors, so as to get a clean lip line. The only colors I was not a fan of was video vixen and goth topic. They both seemed a little patchy to me.

Overall, I highly recommend this product. They are not only affordable but amazing quality. They best part is, you can usually get them on sale! CVS frequently does buy one get one 50% off and Walgreens recently had these on sale at 3 for $10.

I hope you find this review helpful! Below you will find swatches for 12 of the 13 shades (give me mocha coming soon).

Update: finally got my hands of Give Me Mocha and it is georgous! Here is a picture of all the colors swatched.
