MAKEUP MONDAY: Week 2

Hello all!

If you read last week’s blog, then you already know what I’m doing. Each week I will take a selection of products and try them for seven full days. On Monday, I will share with you how those products worked out and let you know what I’ll be trying the next week. So, here are the products from the past week:

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette in Basis Peach: I was really excited to try this palette because I had heard great things about Wet n Wild’s eyeshadows. This color selection stood out from what I had in my current. I really enjoyed playing with the blue eyeshadow (a color I previously shied away from) and it looked gorgeous under the lower lash line. Both transition shades worked really well. There were a few more glitter shades than I would have personally liked, but overall the color selection was really good.  While the shadows didn’t blend as well as a high-end product would, they were still relatively easy to work with. I’m hoping to get my hands on the Rose in the Air palette soon.
Price: $4.99 USD / Size: 10 Shadows

Profusion Contour Palette: This palette came out around Christmas time and I was really excited about it. It had some pretty decent reviews on YouTube and the cool tone contour shade looked like it would fit my skin tone pretty well. When I went to actually apply the product, it was patchy and difficult to blend. It took a lot more time than I wanted it to and it wasn’t practical in my usual morning routine. The highlights were powdery as well. In the past, I’ve used it for eyeshadow and that worked decently, but I wouldn’t recommend buying a contour palette just for that. Especially when you could get better eyeshadow for less money. I did find the brush included was nice for some nose contouring.
Price: $7.00 USD / Size: Two Highlights & 3 Contours

Wet n Wild MegaCushion Color Corrector in Green: This product surprised me the most. It actually worked much better without a primer underneath, which saves a step in the morning. The green shade wasn’t too deep, so it didn’t show through my foundations or CC cream. While using the product is a nice touch, it’s not something I would do every day because I’m not sure it’s entirely necessary. I’ll probably use the product up, but I’ll have to use it a lot more before I decide if I need to repurchase.
Price: $5.99 USD / Size: 0.18 oz

E.L.F. Active Post-Workout Cool Down Mist: Here’s a product that felt nice, but I’m not sure it really prepped my skin or set my makeup. It was also heavily fragranced, so sensitive skin beware. Really this is just a refresher after a really hot walk outside. If you’re not a super active person or you don’t like fragrance, this isn’t for you. If you’re super active and hate the heat, you might like this product. Overall, I’m not sure I think it’s worth the money.
Price: $8.00 USD / Size: 2.7 oz.
