Elf Cosmetics Aqua Beauty Collection

Hey y'all.

I recently picked up a couple of items from Elf Cosmetics' limited edition Aqua Collection.


Elf Aqua Beauty Radiant Gel Lip Tint and Blush and Bronzer

Elf's Aqua Collection is ideal for Spring and Summer because the colors are vibrant and the products are infused with Purified Water and Vitamin E.

I REALLY love the Blush and Bronzer duo in "Bronzed Violet."  The blush and bronzer are both pigmented and blend easily into the skin.  Both colors are also deep enough to show up on my dark skin which is great!

I honestly don't feel that the Radiant Gel Lip Stain is worth $4. It takes at least 4 coats to get even a hint of color.

Wet n Wild Perfect Pair Ombre Lip Wand (swatches)

Hey y'all.

Wet n Wild recently released a NEW Ombre Lip Wand collection at Target.  These are available exclusively at Target stores and on Target's Website. 

Wet n Wild Perfect Pair Ombre Lip Wand in "Mutually Beneficial"

Here's what Target's Website says about the product:
"The Perfect Pair Ombre Lip Wand by Wet n Wild® will give you the perfect bold, pouty lip you have been going wild over! A dual lip wand with complimentary shades that can be worn together or separately. Create endless looks with this highly pigmented formula perfect for layering and highlighting."

I picked up the shade "Mutually Beneficial" which has a bright pink shade on one end, and a true purple shade on the other.

Honestly, this box wasn't my favorite.  I'm on the fence about whether I want to keep my subscription.
