Ahhh…trying new makeup, who doesn’t love that! If you haven’t seen my first impressions on these products, the video link will be down below… But okay, let’s jump into the review.
I love both of these brands and have been using them for years so you can already see why I am so exited to share my opinions on these products with you. I tested out 3 products of each of these two brands, are you ready?
Wet & Wild:
Photofocus foundation: This foundation is a very lightweight foundation with a medium to full coverage depending on how much you apply. With the thin consistency, building up layers are so easy without looking cakey. I have found that it doesn’t blend that well with a large buffing brush, but it blends beautifully with a more dense and compact brush like the Real Techniques Expert face brush. A damp beauty sponge also works perfect. As for the longevity of the foundation I have found that it lasts pretty long and wears well throughout the day. The glass bottle also adds a nice expensive feel to it.
Photofocus concealer: At first the concealer looked pretty full coverage but after taking a closer look I feel that it is more medium coverage and doesn’t build up to full coverage very well. On the bright side it blends out really easy and doesn’t crease that much…
Au Naturel: Nude Awakening eye shadow palette: This palette performs fairly well and you can definitely create multiple looks with this palette without having the need to reach for another one to use with this one. The shades are pretty good especially for the drugstore and the shadow not only blends out easily but they last pretty long on the eyes too.
Blush: Cosmopolitan: Wow, just absolutely stunning! I am just in love with Maybelline blushes. This is such a pretty colour that just brightens up my whole face and gives me a healthy look. It’s not too pigmented but just pigmented enough to apply effortless, still keeping it buildable. Oh and it blends like a dream!
Setting Spray: If you are looking for a nice and affordable setting spray that will make your makeup last all day long then you should really give this one a go! I find it to work perfect for all types of foundation and it just seals everything in without making it overly dewy or matte, it just looks natural. It also has a really fine mist which I’m in love with!
Super Stay Matte Ink: (05 Loyalest) At first I wasn’t to sure about this colour but now I actually quite like it. The formula is super long lasting and transfer proof. If you like matte lippies then I’m sure you will love this one! Please just use a lip liner… The only downside for me is that I was hoping it would be as pink as the bottle but it’s actually a bit more nude…
And that my lovelies are it for this post, please follow this blog if you like makeup and don’t forget to watch my video to see these products in action!
