OMG An Update !!! (+ Review, Haul & more)

Hey guys !

Oh my goodness, how long has it been? I deeply apologized (i know, for the gazillionth time) for not updating. Many reasons I could throw out there but I bet you're not really interested in details. Anyway, I just recently moved away from Hawaii but I will soon return next year. I settled in my new place and I do plan to keep this blog alive again, cross my heart.

So, for a start, how about a review?

I visited my *new* local Walgreens for Halloween stuffs last week and saw they had a 50% off sale on Wet'n'Wild items, my eyes went O___________O because there are stuffs I badly wanted to try and I would have gotten them anyway even without the discount. So I marched my way to the aisle and snatched 2 of their Color Icon Palette in Vanity (browns) and Lust (purples).

Product Pictures
The second picture was taken under a normal lighting, so I would say it gives you a better judgment on the true colors appear on the palette.

1. Vanity 

2. Lust

AMAZING. I love them not just for the price, the texture is velvety smooth and to my surprise, the matte ones are easier to apply and have better pigmentation than the satin ones. Vanity has 2 nice matte brow bone colors and the browns are so wearable. Lust has 1 pastel baby pink that is so adorable and I hardly find mattes in that color that is so pigmented and soft. The purples are gorgeous and the dark burgundy color is perfect for crease to deepen your night look.


Only Lust for now :) hope you all like it!
