Wet N Wild Eyeshadows+Swatches

Wet N Wild Color Icon shadows are crazy pigmented!!! As many of you probably know by now, I love the color icon shadows that Wet N Wild has now!! Along with the Color Icon Blushes and Liners too! I depotted these shadows and placed them in a Zpalette with all the other depotted WnW trios. Its a great way to be sure to utilize all your shadows!!

Blush Wars! My favortie HIGH END Blush brands! (Series # 1)





Rose Petal, Heather Pink, Violet Orchid (only shimmer)  and Soft Iris
Top Collage swathces from left to right top to bottom:  Lotus Pink Peach Whisper Orange Blossom, Bottom: Barley Pink Lush Nectarine, Sweet Mandarin





So by now many of you may know that I am a blush addict! From drugstore to high end I just love blush and am not partial to any in particular if it is pretty and the right shade I am all over it, so I have decided to share my lovelies with all of you, what I am buying what I love and why (or why not).

Here and there I will post various Blush wars post! You guys be the decider of what you might think works for you! Please leave your comments on any of the products mentioned I am sure others would love to hear what you have to share as well. That is how I mostly base most of my blush buying on too, by reading and watching on you tube what others say about the blushes they buy and why!


So the brand featured in this post is Laura Mercier among many other products I own from LM (cream blush, shimmerblocs, bronzers, foundation primer, eye liner cake, etc) I really love the blushes this brand has to offer, such great shades! They last very long and the color stays true for hours, I prefer applying my blushes on top of a cream blush as well, but even with out these babies can last! For the shimmering blushes I don't have to apply a highlighter they already have a great sheen!

Above from left to right the shade swatches are Rose Petal, Heather Pink, Violet Orchid (only shimmer)  and Soft Iris. Top Collage swathces from left to right top to bottom: Lotus Pink Peach Whisper Orange Blossom,  Barley Pink Lush Nectarine, Sweet Mandarin




I purchased these on sephora.com and lauramercier.com. The palette I have mine in you can purchase separately. Which I preffer to do, so I don't have to store so many compacts and this way I also remeber my blushes because I can see them mostly all in one palette!

#1 Fave Palette... LORAC UNZIPPED!!! + Swatches

swatches correspond with palette below, top to right

top to right.. undercover, unbelievable, unattainable,unconditional,unbridled,undiscovered,unreal,uncensored,unspoken,untamed



First of all, out of all the eye shadow palettes and eye shadows I must say that at this moment this is by far my Favorite!! The texture, the color, and the longevity! Is what totally sold me on this palette I can't stop using it lately!

The LORAC unzipped palette also comes with their tube of eye primer perfect size lasts a long time!
I love the lightest shade undercover as my highlighting color, I seriously want to buy this on it's on so I don't run out! It looks like nothing much in the palette, but it is this perfect creamy vanilla shade with the ever so slight sheen that is barely detectable but it gives the greatest look as a highlight! Unconditional is also right now my favorite crease color for that soft but buildable neutral look! If I am using other shadows for the day I totally pull out my LORAC palette lately just to use undercover as a h/l and unconditional as a crease color! that is how much I love them!
If you have yet to try this palette go now to Sephora because I doubt it'll last long when people start to see how great it is! (I feel like buying a back up!)
