Wet n Wild is DIRT cheap and can be found at pretty much every drug store and big box retailer here in the U.S. It is a cosmetic brand with a pretty wide range for the price, including face products, eye products, nail products, as well as beauty tools and brushes. It has a lot of great offerings, but I do have my personal favorites, and I want to share those with you!
- Walking on Eggshells Eye Shadow Trio $3
This is a cult-classic, but it is popular for a reason. It features two shimmer and one satin shade: a shimmering ivory shade, a satin mid-tone brown, and a stunning light pink shimmer. The shimmery pink is a very close dupe to Stila’s famous Kitten. I don’t own Kitten myself, but I found a bomb comparison on the blog Beautiful (Un)Necessities (below). The trio are also supposed to be dupes for a few MAC shades. The ivory WnW for MAC’s Shroom, the brown for MAC’s Cork, and the pink for MAC’s Naked Lunch, so if you’ve been wanting any of those, try out Walking on Eggshells first!
2. Hollywood Boulevard Shimmer Palette – $6
This swirled, baked highlighter is so pretty that I wish I had bought it sooner. It’s a marble of gold, bronze, and pink pigment, but when swatched is just a lovely non-brassy gold that looks amazing on my NC15 skin, but it would also look really great on darker skin. It may get a bit ashy on very dark skin, but would also be a lovely shadow and inner corner highlight! I use this with a small fan brush, and put it on the top of my cheekbones, tip of my nose, and a bit on my forehead if I’m feeling extra glam. It’s also a high quality dupe for several high end highlighters, including the new Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighter in So Hollywood and Laura Geller’s cult favorite Gilded Honey, although I think Hollywood Blvd. is a bit lighter and less warm that Gilded Honey. I bought Hollywood Blvd. specifically because of the below swatch from my FAVORITE Instagram account, Dupe That, and in it you can see the comparisons between several brands!
Don’t let the name fool you, this isn’t a bronzer AT ALL. This is a very light, illuminating powder that is absolutely incredible and a must have for your makeup collection. Use all over for an illuminating finishing powder, as this is very similar to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Dim Light (see swatches below from Emily Loke). It can also be used as a super subtle highlight on the high points of the face. Finally, on lighter skin tones, it is great for brightening the under eye and setting under eye concealer. Another huge plus about this product is that the pan is HUGE, as big as my palm if not bigger. So it lasts F O R E V E R!
