Wet N Wild Midnight Mermaid Collection Swatches & Review

I'm so excited to finally have my hands on the new fall collection by Wet N Wild called Midnight Mermaid. The box is soooo pretty with the holographic mermaid and mermaid scales. I spent half an hour trying to check out on launch date because their website was so slow and there were probably a ton of people trying to get on the site too. But, they shipped it out relatively quickly. It's currently out of stock but you can get the items individually or at ulta/walgreens/drugstore. The box was $34.99 and most value for money though. The mermaid box came in a brown box (standard packaging) and the contents were bubble wrapped and sealed. So, pictured on top is how everything looks inside minus the packaging and seals. 
I had seen previews of the box prior to purchasing and I really liked the colors and theme so I'm excited to share my own swatches and review on the items.
These are the MegaLiner Metallic Eyeliners. Individually, they retail for $3.99. There are three shades -…

Holy Grail Makeup & Skin Care Products

I'm not sure how useful this is but I decided to compile a list of my favorite makeup and skincare products. Some of these are products that I have been using for years and some are recent discoveries that I am in love with and plan to continue using. I don't claim to have the widest knowledge in makeup and skincare but these are items that have worked well on my skin, so I'm just writing out of my personal experience.

Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam Pictured is the current new version of the cleanser but I was using the old one for a couple of years until I ran out. I really enjoy the fizzy texture of this and that a little bit is all you need to get a good amount of foam for your face. There seems to be some exfoliating bits too so that always comes in handy. This removes residual makeup o…

ColourPop Summer '17 Heat Collection Lip Swatches | Asian Skin

Yay! Who doesn't love it when ColourPop releases new lippies? They called these the heat collection and there are 8 new lip colors.
There is a trio bundle called Sun Seeker for $15 and this includes one of each type of finish - glossy, satin and matte. Cabana Boy (Ultra Glossy Lip) Cabana Boy is a rose gold in a metallic finish and it is beautiful. It has just the right amount of pigmentation and it looks beautiful worn on its own. You can use it as an accent on top of other lip colors too. This one feels really comfortable on the lips and not heavy or tacky at all.

Tidal (Ultra Satin Lip) Tidal is a warm brown and this was really pigmented. It dried down to quite a matte finish but it's not transfer proof. Super comfortable and not streaky. It would be a great nude for deeper skin tones.

Sizzle (Ultra Matte Lip) Sizzle is described as a warm berry but it seems like a really bright strawberry red in my opinion. Even so, it's really pigmented and it's a cute bright color …
