WnW Vanity Palette

I finally gave in to all of the hype surrounding these wet N wild palettes, and I am so happy that I did.  They are 50% off this week at Walgreens, so grab them while you can!  Here is a quick look I threw on to try out one of the new palettes and am quite pleased.  The shadows, both mattes and frosts, are so well pigmented and creamy.  The mattes actually rival MAC's famous matte2 texture in both pigmentation and application.  Awesome deal for $2.50!!

I used Indelible Cream Shadow in Bare Necessity as a base, the shadows as pictured below:

Softer Gradient Purples


Ive been getting a lot of use out of my 88 matte palette lately... it had gone long ignored until recently.  I love having all the shadows spread out before me in one easy to access place.  Here is a simple look using a matte white and some purples from the palette.... as well as a pop of yellow on the inner corners.  I think this would have looked really nice with some demi falsies, but I was too lazy to put them on :)

NYX Jumbo Pencil in milk (applied lightly all over lid)
88 Matte palette- white, yellow,  medium purple and deep purple
Ben Nye Cake liner
Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume

Cheeks are Milani Luminous (a close dupe for Coralista!)
Lips are OCC lip tar in memento ( i think- name has been rubbed off)

ACK!  Photos look a bit washed out :(  Thanks for looking all!

88 matte palette, w/ step by step!


I am lounging today and having some make up fun.  I went for a brighter look, complete with false lashes.  I used mainly my 88 matte palette for this look.  Thanks so much for looking!

I started by priming my eye w/ Indelible Cream Shadow in Bare Necessity

Then I took my MAC 217 brush and placed the Shrek-y green from this palette to just above my crease and blended up toward brow

I then took a vibrant teal, with the same brush and applied it to my crease leaving a bit of the shrek green exposed.

I then took a smaller crease brush and dipped into some deep blue mixed with some black to darken and placed it in the very outer V.

Next, some cream colored shadow to the brow to highlight and blend using a larger shader brush.

Next, using a small shader brush, I picked up a muted gold and applied to the lid. I also sharpened up the outer V by cleaning up with a make up wipe.

Then, using a pencil brush I lined the lower lashline with a true green

I then took MAC's Gorgeous Gold with the same pencil brush and applied to inner tear duct area/lower lashline

Black liquid liner on upper lashline, kohl liner on waterline, filled in brows.

Touch up colors as needed, add some mascara and falsies and all done!

On my lips Wet and Wild Matte lipstick- 903C with NYX gloss- Natural
Cheeks are MAC The Perfect Cheek
