Wet n Wild palette "Cool as Cucumber" Review

So I debated for awhile on whether or not to do this post because this is a "negative" review. It really makes me sad because Wet n Wilds' eyeshadow palettes are,in my opinion the best drugstore eyeshadow you can get. I have them all and every single one of them are really soft,no fallout, great lasting pigmentation even without primer... until I tried this one. Cool as a cucumber is just a fail. It had major major fallout, I had to literally pack it on to get any kind of color, did not blend well, just a total mess.

This is AFTER I rubbed my finger across 4 times!
And the finished EOTD

LOTD, Hard candy Plumping Serum lipgloss Review

So this is my first "Lip of the day" I've never seen one so I decided to go ahead and do it :) So lately I've been using Hard Candys' Plumping Serum Volumizing Lipgloss in "Dunes 336" It's a sheer mauve with pink&blue specks of glitter but it dosen't over power your lips. It claims to plump your lips which I didn't really see a difference, but it does smooth over any lines on your lips. Overall I'd give this a 6 out of 10.

Here's the rundown:

Gorgeous Color
Nice Tingling Feeling
Cute packaging

$6 for only 0.10 oz. while their other glossoholic lipglosses are $5 for 0.38 oz. thats more than two times the ammount!!!!
The packaging is decieving! but oh well.

E.L.F. Vol. I Natural Eye PaletteReview&EOTD

So I was abit skeptical when I swatched a random shadow in the palette but after jumping in and doing an eotd I fell in love with this palette. I will be honest, the matte colors aren't as pigmented as I would like but how gorgeous the shimmer & pearl ones come out I'm as pleased as punch. For $5 you really can't go wrong :)  

So to the EOTD part: On my lid i'm just using one shadow, the last one on the right second row. It has lasted ALL day with the help of a primer without creasing and without loss of color OR smudging. I know right AMAZING!!! lol
