I have been meaning to do this review for weeks now but every time I set about to write it I find that I’ve picked up another product from the Wet n Wild range to try. I know, I know a terrible excuse. But here it is, better late than never, totally jumping on the bandwagon my opinion of the eagerly anticipated Wet n Wild range.

So first of all I went for nail varnish. I picked up two colours from the Megalast collection. Costing a whopping €2.99, I picked up the colours E2181-I Need a Refresh-Mint and E2072-Bite the Bullet. I Need a Refresh-Mint if you hadn’t guessed it by now is a gorgeous pastel minty green and I love it! It is the perfect colour for spring time and two coats of this baby will go along way.

The same goes for Bite the Bullet except that it is a wonderful pastel purple colour, are you seeing a pattern here? The brushes in the Megalast collection are wide and flat making it very easy to apply. I will definitely be picking up a few more of these.

Sticking with nail varnish I also picked up Wild Shine nail varnish in E463-Jezebel for €1.99. I like the shiny finish on this varnish but I feel like this colour is more of a christmassy colour than a fresh spring colour. With that being said I will definitely be breaking it out next autumn/winter. It has a very glamorous, old Hollywood finish. The brush isn’t quiet as nice or as wide as the Megalast range but it applies quiet evenly. I will be pick up a few more of these once my pastel phase wanes a bit.

Now on to my current obsession lipstick! I tried and fell head over heels in love with the Megalast Matte Lip Colour, the formula is lovely and creamy and feels really comfortable on the lips. I picked up four lipsticks in total and believe me it was hard to stop just at that many. E907C Mauve Outta Here is a lovely pink/fuchsia colour with a purple undertone. It is really pigmented and lasts about 4 hours. It does fade as the day goes on but it fades really evenly and doesn’t leave you’re lips looking patchy and dry.

I also picked up E909D Coral-ine. A gorgeous coral colour this again this lasts about 4 hours but I find that it doesn’t fade quiet as well as the mauve colour. It is a vey pink/red hued coral and is quiet striking thanks to it’s rich pigment.

In my second shopping spree I picked up E903C Just Peachy. This is more of a peach nude and is perfect for everyday wear. I wear it quiet a lot to work and just if I need a pick me up while running errands but don’t want to be too daring.

Finally I picked up E917B Cinnamon Spice, this is a more vampy colour than I usually wear but I love it. It isn’t a traditional spring colour but I think it brings a bit of edge to any outfit.

I will definitely be picking up a few more of the matt lip colour lipsticks as I am quiet taken with them and for €2.99 how could you go wrong?

Still on the lips I picked up the Megaslicks Balm Stain Moisturising lip colour in E128 Pinky Promise (€3.99). I found that this was quiet moisturising at first but it made my lips feel dry and tacky quiet quickly. I was also disappointed with the color finish which has a sort of frosted effect (it’s hard to see that in the photo above, but trust me it’s there!). I felt like a was wearing children’s dress up make-up. Very disappointed with this and I will not be repurchasing. I took a look at the other colours available at my local stand and they all seemed to have that frosted finish so I won’t be trying any of the other colours either.

Now onto eyes. I am still on a mission to find the perfect eyeliner to give me that gorgeous vintage cat eye that I crave so much so I picked up a bottle of H2O Proof Liquid Liner in E883 Smoky (€3.99). Now I tried this product for over two weeks as I wanted to give it a good whack and I so wanted to LOVE it! I am not the best at doing my eye-liner and am still in the practice stage after all these years but I could just not get my head around this liner. The applicator was nice, small and firm with a long handle which I found easy to use, but the liquid liner itself was messy. It took ages to dry meaning that when I went for a thicker line I got it all over my eyelid when I blinked! Now this could be because my eyes are quiet deep set but this liner is definitely not for me. Once it dries, however, it is very difficult to remove so if you manage to get it to stay where you want it long enough to dry, it will stay there all night long.

Overall I was very impressed with what I tried in the range and will definitely be repurchasing and trying some of the other products. For the price this range is a bargain and well worth every cent.
