Wet n’ Wild
Tis about that time kids! Summer is coming, very slowly, but it is coming. As Summer approaches I tend to haul out lighter coverage and look out for anything that will make me look flawless but isn’t incredibly heavy. Of course tinted moisturizers are a great way to even out your skin tone, make you look flawless, plus most include some sort of SPF for sun protection.
They aren’t always cheap! Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is a shocking $42. I’ve always found it a little crazy that tinted moisturizer costs so much and in some cases more than run of the mill foundation.
Anyway, here’s some affordable, cheaper tinted moisturizers to keep your beauty budget in shape this season so at least you’ll have some left over cash for a bikini after purchasing your TM.
Want a full color lipstick with a super matte finish? Want it cheap?
Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color might fit the bill!
Yup, I’m a makeup snob. Present me with $3 buck mascara and I do second guess whether I actually NEED to even try it out. Seriously?
Since I’ve been so busy scoring left and right with awesome eye makeup removers at my drugstore I thought, “heyz let’s go ahead and try something else new…” Pushing my luck I purchased Wet n’ Wild Beauty Benefits Beyond Eye Makeover Remover and proceeded to have my head examined.
I’m such a dope. I should know lightening never strikes twice. I was lucky with Clean & Clear and again lucky with L’Oreal but this…this is utter rubbish.
Jump for it!
Wet n’ Wild is going all green and organic or whatever you want to call the current craze of hippie loving cosmetics out there (no offense green friendly peeps but the market is getting a little too saturated with this stuff that it’s getting on my nerves by now!).
Along with cosmetics in the new Wet n’ Wild Beauty Benefits Collection they released a $4.99, 3.8oz size of eye make remover. It claims to remove waterproof mascara but I don’t think so.
First off it burns like acid. OW! It hurts something fierce. It also has the consistency of water mixed with dish soap, not good, not good at all. Oh and it also smells like dish soap mixed with gasoline, pretties (insert sarcasm there).
Seriously though between the burning sensation, the gross smell, and the fact that it doesn’t do all that great a job removing my shadow never mind my waterproof mascara, this one is a very safe skip.
Stay clear people, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Final word, no likey, at all.
Ha who would think that mascara that costs $3.79 USD would actually work? Count the Muse amused, delighted, and surprised at how well her testing with Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara went!

I ran across Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara recently while I was at Walgreens and I must say it actually works quite well. Last Intense makes the standard round of promises such as fuller, thicker lashes but at $3.79 USD my dubious nature set in. Seriously, mascara that’s under $4 USD…..doesn’t the idea of the price tag alone scare the beegees out of you?
Turns out you can have thicker, longer, and fatter lashes for under $4 USD. Ha, who would guessed?
Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara sports the plastic applicator that’s taken the drugstore world by storm lately. Everywhere you look plastic applicators are popping up! What do you think of plastic applicators? I find in some cases that they work rather well but in others not so great. In this case the applicator is the key to creating beautifully long, thick lashes and works quite well. The applicator has no curve and is straight in style with longer bristles on one side and shorter on the other. The best way to apply the mascara is to use the longer bristles to brush a few coats of mascara on and use the shorter end to work product through your lashes while curling them upwards. It does a take a little bit of work to get the knack of using it without creating a mess but a few tries later and I had quite nice results.
Results are pretty amazing! My lashes were considerably thicker, longer, and full of volume. Likey! It wears well through the day without smudging, flaking, or smearing. The cute portable size and purple packaging appeals although it is a tiny bit cheap looking but hey the product works, that counts for something!
What’s not to like? If you’re on a budget and looking for a cheap mascara that gives longer, fuller lashes this is well worth a try! I didn’t LOVE it but I definitely liked it!
Anyone try out Wet n’ Wild Lash Intense Mascara?
