FINALLY!!!!! I FOUND the NEW Wet & Wild Palettes

Damn, it took me so long to find these NEW palettes from Wet & Wild Cosmetics, but now I got it, yeah!!!!  There are 6 NEW palettes I believe and it costs $2.99 each at Walgreens.  I heard that this collection is permanent, but I don't know if that is true so I didn't take any chances and picked up 5.  

I really like Wet & Wild Cosmetics because the colors have a good payoff, it's affordable and have a variety of colors & texture - matte, shimmer, etc.  It can be purchased at Rite Aide, Walgreens and even Pathmark Supermarket.  I recommend these palettes especially to those who are just starting to do makeup cause these palettes are labeled on the eyeshadow itself how to use (eyelid, crease & browbone starting from bottom to top) and if you turn it to the back of the palette there is a picture as well showing details.  


The 5 I purchased are: #331 'I Dream of Greenie'; #333 'I Got Good Jeans'; #334 'I'm Getting Sunburned'; #336 'Spoiled Brat'; and #382B 'Cool As Cucumber' (Not apart of the NEW collection).  

For swatches & info, click on the link below to check out The Original QueenBMakeup blog.  She's a BAD makeup artist.  She uses the most wildest colors and create such a beautiful look...she's awesome!!!

L to R: #334 'I Got Sunburned' and #333 'I Got Good Jeans'

The brown in #334 (middle 'crease') is what attracted me to this palette.  It kind of reminds me of Stila 'Twig' but it turns out to be completely different yet beautiful.  Blue is my favorite color so of course I had to pick up #333, but honestly I picked up this palette for the gold.  After seeing swatches on YT, I was sold to that pretty gold.  The 'browbone' and 'crease' color reminds me of MAC's NEW Collection Jeanius so I swatched it (sorry no pics of comparison) and yes it's close.  

L to R: #382B 'Cool As A Cucumber'; #331 'I Dream of Greenie'; & #336 'Spoiled Brat'
I like the green ('eyelid') in palette #382B, it's very pretty along with the other colors in it.  #331 is perfect for Spring and #336 is perfect for a night out.

I started playing with the colors and this is the look I came up with (half a face, lol) using 2 palettes #333 and #334.  Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know my eyelash is coming off.  It's ready to be in the garbage but since I got so excited to play with the colors I just added without cutting it.  And the pencil in my hair, very bad habit - I'm a mother (doing homework) and a secretary...can't say anymore, lol.

New Adventure


I'm so excited to say that I'm working as an intern with Eve Pearl from Eve Pearl Cosmetics in the International Beauty Show (IBS) at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.  On, Friday,  March 4th, I helped with set-up and got the honor to meet Eve Pearl.  She is exactly the same person as you see on YouTube.  If you don't know who she is, I advise you to do so!!!!  She is well known for the true meaning of "flawless."  The big event begins Sunday, March 6th thru Tuesday, March 8th.
