Review: Wet n Wild Coloricon Brow & Eye Liners

Hi pretties! I am super excited for today's post because this product is literally, just something I want to tell the whole world about! It is the Wet n Wild Coloricon Brow & Eye Liners that are found at stores such as Wal-mart, Target, and other drugstores that carry this brand. Now, if you aren't familiar with the brand Wet n Wild, then let me give you my opinion on it as a cosmetic product purchaser. This brand has amazing quality products for incredible prices! They have a full line of amazing lipsticks, eyeliners, mascaras, blushes, bronzers, face products, eyeshadows, nail polishes; basically any makeup product you can think of! The eyeliner's I am going to do a review on are only $0.93 at my local Wal-Mart. Yes, you read that right. Ninety-three cents! How crazy is that?!
They are approximately 19 cm in length!

*Also, before you read on; please make sure you follow this blog and subscribe to me on youtube! I will be having a giveaway soon once I reach a certain amount of followers and subscribers!


The above picture shows 3 of the shades that I purchased. The top one is in 651 Black Black, the center is 652 Dark Brown, and the one on the bottom is in 655 Charcoal. All 3 of the liners are extremely creamy, as you will see in the pictures below, and have incredible pigmentation making this eyeliner perfect for smoking out, or a really intense eyeliner. Since the formula is intensely creamy it will smudge a bit and run, giving this a rating of 3.5/5 in staying power.


Here are swatches of all 3 eyeliners, as well as my Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Black Ebony which is on the bottom.  
As you can see, the Wet n Wild eyeliners are more creamier, and have a better pigmentation compared to my $25.00 Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in Black Ebony which is significantly more expensive than the Wet n Wild ones. *Keep in mine that I swatched these all on my hand using the same amount of light pressure.


My Wet n Wild eyeliner in comparison to the Lancôme eyeliner on paper. I used the same amount of pressure, and as you can see the Wet n Wild one is much more creamier, and pigmented. 
Another swatch on paper. 

IN A SHORT:
I really like these eyeliners. They are way underpriced for the incredible pigmentation and creaminess but hey, that's perfectly fine by me! You get a lot (19 cm!), they are super rich, and will last a long time!

Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish Available At Walmart! + Review

Hey guys, so I was requested to do more reviews, and I was at Walmart since one is close by and I saw a huge display of Sinful Colors Nail Polishes! I heard of the brand before from an eleventhgorgeous video, so I was really excited to see them at Walmart!

So this is the display that was in front of the makeup/beauty aisle at my Walmart.
So the colors I bought were Timbleberry and Boogie Nights, just to try out the brand. Timbleberry appeared to be a hot pink shade, but once it was applied it turned into a coral-pink color. Boogie nights is a cream-orange-pink shade.

Timbleberry

It took me at least 2-3 coats, which wasn't that bad. I did notice streaking on my nail on the first coat, and you have to be careful with the brush because it picks up a lot of product. My sister complained that her color globbed on her nail, I didn't find a huge problem with that for me. The color isn't so sheer, but one coat definitely won't cut it.

For the price per bottle ($1.99), I feel like it's worth it. It's very inexpensive for nail polish, they have a large array of colors, and I don't think that this is a bad polish. 

My all time favorite brands are definitely China Glaze & OPI, just because most of my polishes are from those brands. 

I used Seche Vite Top Coat on top for a quick dry, and shine. This protected the polish, and I haven't seen any chipping so far. It's been close to a week with this shade on and it looks like I just applied it that day! That makes me extremely happy. 

In short, I think that these polishes are nice for the price you pay. You won't feel disappointed or in regret for spending the $1.99 on these polishes. I definitely will want to expand my sinful colors collection!

*BY THE WAY* 
Thank you guys SO much for the incredible support on my blog! I can't express how motivated I am to make more posts!


Until Next Time,
xoxo

Crystal Light Drink Mix for Healthier Skin!

Hey guys, so I went to Kroger to pick up some chocolate milk (I know, delicious), and I stopped by the drink mix aisle to pick up a new box of another favorite drink of mine (Crystal Light Peach and Mango Green Tea) and I saw the Crystal Light Skin Essentials Pomegranate Lemonade Drink Mix next to it so I decided to buy it. One reason why I love drink mixes is that they are really sweet so your sugar cravings are gone, they're inexpensive (I got both packs that have 7-10 pouches for $7 in total), and they're 5 calories a pouch!

So obviously the one on the left is the peach mango green tea, but the one on the right is the Skin Essentials one. Like I said I got it at Kroger.

The Claim: Antioxidant Vitamins and plant extract help nourish your skin from within

It was developed in part with European dermatologists.

My view:

Since I just started drinking it, I didn't notice any dramatic difference with my skin. I have oily-combo skin, not a whole lot of acne, just some bumps here and there and maybe a zit if it's...that time of the month.

At first, the taste is some what sour and shocking, but then it becomes sweet and you'll like it it tastes like juice. Not really pomegranate, but it tastes like fruit juice with minute maid.

The color is a intense red color so it will stain clothing.

I'll keep you updated to see if it has any real effects on my skin!

Thanks for the support, and make sure you check out my youtube channel: youtube.com/vanessatiffanie


Until Next Time,
