Hello Beauty Babes!
I’m so happy to start posting again. I haven’t been as active as I want on Instagram or on my blog because of some things happening the past few months in my life that to be honest have really brought me down. I may open up about it later on if you want but for now let’s get to something to really lift our spirits.
Wet N Wild just launched their new flights of fancy collection for spring and summer and I am loving it!
I feel like alot of brands have gotten so boring and unoriginal. just recycling old trends until no one wants them. I don’t wanna name names, but uhm, I think we’re finished with mermaids and holographic fantasy makeup. right?
But back to Flights of Fancy. this collection is perfect for spring and summer and it gives us something new to fall in love with. This limited edition collection comes with lots of products, some we haven’t seen from wet n wild till now.
It comes with:
- 3 Color Icon Baked Blushes ($4.99)
- 5 Color Icon Lip Glosses ($3.99)
- 3 Megalast Liquid Eyeliners ($2.99)
- 3 Color Icon Eyeshadow Quads ($2.99)
- 2 Perfect Pout Lip Scrubs ($3.99)
- Photofocus Primer Water Spray ($4.99)
- P72 Blush Brush ($7.99)
- 6 Color Icon Nail Polishes (available online 5 for $9.99)
This collection is inspired by hummingbirds and the vibrancy of summer. You get something new with this collection so that you can really get inspired!
Something great about this collection is that Wet N Wild has donated $10,000 to the Audubon Society which protects birds habitats, like the hummingbird which I think is so amazing!
So, let’s get into the haul! I picked up a few products from this collection at my local Walgreens.
So let’s get into it!
First, I want to talk about the brand new Color Icon Baked Blushes because this is something we haven’t seen from Wet N Wild till now!
The packaging is similar to their very popular Megalast Highlighters (which are favorites of mine) but they aren’t the exact same These have a gorgeous hummingbird design in the blush pan. These baked blushes have a really gorgeous sheen to them that isn’t too shimmery or over powering. I love blush formulas like this for the summer because they give you that nice glow from within look.
The formula is really nice because the texture is very soft, yet light and very blendable. These aren’t highlighters, they really are blushes or if you don’t like alot of sheen in your blush, you could use these as a blush topper. They remind me a lot of the MAC Extra Dimmension Blushes because they aren’t shimmery or sparkly they just offer a really beautiful glow to your cheeks.
Out of 3 shades, I picked up two. Hummingbird Hype, which is a gorgeous peachy orange with a golden sheen, and Dare To Soar which is a purple berry color with slight purple and orange reflect.
I wanted to show you how these looked on the cheek, so you could see that they aren’t “metallic” and more so give you a nice sheen or glow.
Hummingbird Hype (left) is probably the one I knew I would use the most because I love peachy warm blushes and tones. It gives you that “oh really? I just woke up looking this glowy and fabulous i had no idea!” look which I really love. If you have a warmer skintone like me, this is really going to compliment that!
Dare to Soar (right) is such a unique blush color! I was worried it would look clownish, but it really doesn’t! the formula is very light and blendable like I said so it won’t look weird or patchy when you apply it. I think this shade on medium/deep skintones is really going to look awesome because that berry shade will work well with deeper skintones, however you still get that glow from the blush. I swatched these when I was wearing NO makeup at all so you could see how the blushes look by themselves and I really love how they perform.
Next I picked up two of the five Color Icon Lip Glosses!
I’ve been kind of obsessed with lip glosses right now so when I saw this collection would have 5 different lip gloss shades, I was all for it!
I picked up the shades Featherless which is a light peach/pink nude shade, and Pout of Paradise which is a vibrant pumpkin orange shade.
Wet N Wild claims that these glosses deliver a brilliant mirror like finish and have a super rich formula with Vitamin E and Murumuru Seed Butter. Now I don’t know what is in this, but GIRL THIS FORMULA!!!
It is so buttery, so smooth, not sticky but rich enough to last on your lips, I love it! These aren’t completely opaque, but I like that because you can wear it alone or as a topper. There isn’t a very obnoxious or bad smell and the packaging is so cute!
Featherless is one of those shades that you will get so much use out of because it goes so well with so many looks. it’s like a summer nude. it’s nude, but it delivers enough vibrancy and color to give you that summer vibe. This looks good by itself, and it looks good over so many different lip colors. I love it.
Pout of Paradise is so unique, and so me. I saw this swatched online and I loved it! it’s this gorgeous warm pumpkin shade that somehow is perfect for the summer. it gives your lips this juicy look that I love. it’s colorful, but not to the point where wearing it as a gloss looks bad.
Another brand new product from Wet N Wild in this collection is the Photofocus Primer Water Spray.
I’m gonna be honest with you I saw this and I didn’t really get it. “what’s the point of primer in a spray?” even now I wouldn’t necessarily consider this a major necessity. But, I do really like it. it actually DOES something you know? and if you’re pressed for time, it’s great because you just spray it on!
I like using this on top of another primer personally. I also just discovered that this is great with eyeshadow. if you spray your brush with eyeshadow on it with this primer water, the tackiness helps keep eyeshadow together and stops fall out! That same tackiness helps keep foundation on. So if you thought “this is pointless it’s just fancy water” you would be wrong. I don’t know if this is the same as a setting spray, but I really don’t think so. One day if i’m feeling creative i’ll test it out and let you guys know.
Last thing from my haul is a new limited edition Wet N Wild brush with a gorgeous purple handle! it’s a blush brush that works perfectly with the Color Icon Baked Blushes. I usually use blush brushes that don’t have any density so it delivers a light flush, but this brush is fairly dense, however it applies blush evenly and the shape applies it exactly where you want it to and blends it out at the same time.
This brush also works great in my opinion for contour and setting underneath the eyes. However, brushes are different for everyone you don’t have to use this for blush if it doesn’t work for you. find what works for you.
Alright you guys, that’s it for my Wet N Wild Haul.
I do think the rest of the collection is worth getting. personally, I may want to try one of the eyeliners, and the lip scrub and maybe another shade of lip gloss. i’m not as intrigued by the eyeshadow quads, however I may decide to try them.
Alright you guys, that’s it for this post. you can find this collection at Walgreens, or wetnwildbeauty.com I am really loving this collection so far! Wet N Wild has stepped it’s game up and has really become a major beauty company that produces affordable quality products! If you guys want to see a tutorial using these products, let me know!
