Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

wet n wild thrift store chic

The Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99) is one of five, limited edition Wet n Wild Silver Lake Spring 2015 Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes that recently launched at drugstores.

I have a love hate relationship with Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes. The first round were amazing and to this day I cherish them but there have been many variations since that time and they can prove hit or miss but none the less I continue hauling them because when you do get a hit, well, it’s a cheap kinda thrill that makes your makeup day!

The Wet n Wild Thrift Store Chic Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette is one of those cheap thrills!

E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette

The E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette ($6.99) is one of several, limited edition products launching with the E.L.F. Cosmetics Frozen Elsa Makeup Collection. As you might have noticed from a few my past posts E.L.F. has really gone all out with Elsa’s Collection. They are apparently doing things a lot differently this time and instead of launching items in sets they are doing cuter, individually palettes and makeup products.

Let’s take a look at the E.L.F. Snow and Ice Icicle Face Palette!

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick Review & Swatches

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick

Oh lord where does one start with Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick ($2.99)? Jordana introduced Modern Matte Lipstick to their permanent color cosmetics collection for Spring 2015 in 12 shade selections. They market these as a “kiss your dry matte lipstick goodbye and say hello to modern matte” which implies to me they are hydrating. They also call them an all day wear formula without the typical dry lip finish that feathers and cracks.

Something got terribly lost in translation here!
