Wet & Wild Budget beauty (REVIEW + Swatches)

Lately, I've been trying to explore more of the cruelty-free options that reside at the drugstore. Actually, I've been trying out drugstore options in general, in an effort to find some more affordable options. In all honesty, I haven't tried much from Wet & Wild, at least not since my high school days (minus their gel polishes...which you will see more on soon)! But, since I knew they were cruelty free, and super affordable, I figured it was time I dove in and tried a few things.

I ended up picking out an eye shadow palette and one of their new limited edition high lighters. The palette is called Comfort Zone, and the highlighter is called Where The Dreamers Go. I was instantly drawn to the colors of the eye shadows, and in all honesty, it was the packaging that really sold me on the high lighter - which I think is much nicer than their traditional packaging. It's just cleaner in my opinion.

The shadow palette is from their Color Icon eyeshadow collection and features eight shadows. Each shadow is super soft and buttery, and I found them to all be wonderfully pigmented. The only complaint I might make is that there is a bit of fall out, but it was nothing insurmountable, or that I haven't experienced before, and often from much more expensive shadows. I absolutely love the green color, which is certainly my favorite of the eight shades. I do wish though, that the shadows had names!! Oh and did I mention that this palette was only $5.00!?! Even if you only liked one color, that's still far more affordable than many other options both in the drug store and high end!

The highlighter drew me in with the geometric design and the packaging (BTW, I love that the cruelty free symbol is now proudly being shown on the front of their packaging!!). These highlighters are from their limited edition Spring 2016 collection, of which there are three. I have tried this out a few times and I will say that if you are looking for an intense/strong highlight, then this might not be for you. However, if you are like me, and like something a bit more subtle, or that you can build up without worrying about looking like a greasy disco ball, then I would suggest giving this a go. Again, this highlighter only cost $5.00 so it's worth the gamble if you're curious!

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these Wet & Wild products and I will certainly be keeping the brand on my radar. If you have any suggestions of what I should try out next, please let me know in the comments!
