Colorful Summer Makeup Look (Drugstore)+ Mini Haul Updates

I was feeling inspired from the Wet N Wild “Poster Child” eyeshadow palette and wanted to do something really colorful and bright. This is definitely not an everyday look, but experimenting with bright shadows that I typically would not wear allows me to be a little more creative!

Keep reading to see a full list of products I used to create this look AND a quick first impression review on the products from my mini drugstore haul (previous post).

Products Used:

Eyes

  • For the eyes I used the “Poster Child” palette from Wet N Wild only. I applied the lighter pink shade as a transition shade, the deeper pink in the crease (soft cut crease) and the yellow all over the lid. For the bottom lashline I used a mixture of all the blue shades. IMG_7018
  • I used the NYC liquid liner to create a wing.
  • I applied a couple of coats of the L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara to my top and bottom lashes.
  • I applied MAC Nylon eyeshadow to the inner corner of my eye and to my browbone.

Face

  • I primed my face with just a few sprays of my Mario Badescu Rosewater spray.
  • For foundation I used the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation.
  • I used the Wet N Wild Come Correct concealer on my undereye area.
  • I set my undereye area with the NYC translucent loose powder.
  • I set the rest of my face with the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation powder.
  • I contoured/ bronzed my face with the NYC bronzer in  shade Sunny.
  • For blush, I used the Makeup Revolution matte blush in shade Nude (this is a great shade for ANY makeup look!).
  • For my highlight, I applied the Elf Whipped highlighter in shade Lilac Petal to my cheekbones, tip of the nose, and Cupid’s bow.
  • Lastly, I set my face with my DIY Mac Fix + spray.

Brows & Lips

  • For my brows, I just filled them in with the L’Oreal Brow Stylist pencil in shade Dark Brunette.
  • For my lips, I used the Wet N Wild MegaLast lipstick in shade Don’t Blink Pink.

And that’s it for my makeup! Keep reading to see what I thought of the products from my mini drugstore makeup haul!

Wet N Wild Come Correct concealer- This stuff is FULL COVERAGE but it is great! I have heard that it is a perfect dupe for the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye concealer (but I cannot say because I have never tried the It one). I have the shade Medium (the only shades I saw were Fair and Medium) and it was the perfect shade for my skin tone. The only thing I did not like about this concealer is that it creases really fast so I have to set it right away with powder. A little bit goes a long way for sure- you only need a little dot for both undereyes! Other than that, this product was a hit for me!

NYC Liquid Eyeliner (black)- I knew I was going to like this before I tried it out and I was happy that I was not disappointed! This is the best liquid liner I have tried (drugstore and high end!). This one dries completely matte and it is less than $3! If you do not have this already, you need it.

Wet N Wild “Poster Child” palette- I did not get to trying the other palette but I will get to it! For both the palettes, the shadows are really buttery, soft, and surprisingly pigmented. Plus, these palettes were less than $5 each! For the “Poster Child” palette specifically, the shadows were not patchy and blended beautifully. The only downside is that they are very powdery and have a lot of kick-off, but they blend like a dream so the powdery-ness does not really bother me at all. This is a great palette! I will do another look with the other neutral palette soon!

Wet N Wild MegaLast lipstick in Don’t Blink Pink- I already love these lipsticks and this one was no exception. The color is a bright Barbie pink and very pigmented. The formula is on the dry side, but the formula applies evenly and is not patchy at all. Love these lipsticks and they last forever on the lips!

Elf Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal- I thought this was going to be really chunky, glittery, and hard to blend but it was actually not hard to work with at all. A little bit of this goes a LONG way. I just dabbed it onto my cheekbones with my finger and kind of blended it out. Then I went in with a small stipple brush to further blend it out and it was a beautiful highlight. I applied this overtop of my powder and did not have a problem blending it. This was only a $1, so I definitely think this is a great highlight!

So overall everything I bought was a hit for me and I would definitely recommend any of these products! Hopefully this post was helpful and y’all enjoyed it!
