Wet n Wild Haul: Glitz-licious and Glamourous

After watching Iron Man 2 on opening night (accidentally, in fact), I had around $13 left after purchasing the movie tickets I wasn't supposed to purchase. Long story short, I participated in the Eco-Friendly Fashion Show and won a raffle of 2 AMC movie tickets, which I tried to use at the Esquire but they wouldn't let me for a "special event" like Iron Man 2 pfft. Well, luckily the movie was worth every penny. [By the way, as I'm typing, all the words I'm saying come out in my head in British. What? I guess that happens after watching charlieissocoollike on Youtube. He's bloody brilliant!]

Walgreens had a Buy one get one half off deal going on for Wet n Wild, so I figured I would get some things I've wanted to try. I like the E/S Palettes because they're very pigmented with primer and because there's 6 shadows for $5 ... not bad. Since it's buy one get one half off, I nabbed both for $7.50. I can live with 12 shadows for less than a dollar each : ) The brush applicator they give you is useless, toss it. I just used my ELF Studio Eyeshadow Brush and it's pretty amazing. It picks up colours and I can keep dipping it into another colour but it will only deposit the colour I want. Is it magic? Perhaps. I also have been looking for an orange/tangerine lipgloss but don't want any of that sheer nonsense, so I found one that looked similar but it was more reddish so I didn't risk it. Also wanted to get some dry shampoo but I realized that I ran out of money.

Purchased:
Wet n Wild Craze Nail Polish in Glitz (the crazy purple glitter LOVE it)
Wet n Wild Craze Nail Polish in Goldmine (a yellowish gold)
Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Polish in Blazed (a coral hot pink)
Wet n Wild E/S Palette in Vanity (browns)
Wet n Wild E/S Palette in Lust (purples)
Wet n Wild Dual Pencil Sharpener (which is PERFECT for my big fat Wet n Wild Creme Eyeshadow Stick thank goodness)

Vanity: normal lighting

Lust: normal lighting
Lust: flash
Glitz: normal lighting. I love these little bottles! I think I will eventually buy all of the Craze polishes because they're so adorable and application is amazing. I bought this obnoxious purple glitter polish because it reminds me of 7th grade, a little bottle I had with purple and blue glitter. This one is mostly purple, blue, and white small glitters. I like how it dazzles in sunlight.
Glitz: flash
Glitz: up close
Goldmine: normal lighting. I don't really love this colour because I think it's too yellow but it's still nice. It's a cremey, slightly sparkly yellow-gold. The cap is too adorable!
Goldmine: up close
Blazed: normal lighting. I bought this for my toes, I wanted something bright to wear with my sandals. It turns out to look a lot more hot pink/reddish than coral and makes my skin look more than than it is D: Still a pretty shade. The polish is super smooth to the touch : )
I'll do a look with the purple palette sometime. I love purples for brown eyes - they're so compatible and lovely. I've also become interested in the Ashton DSLR .. Nikon D3000 or D5000? Have you heard good things about it? It seems like a dummy-proof DSLR, which flies in my book. I hope it's not too heavy either.

Tell me if you have any camera recommendations! From my deluge of photos, you can definitely tell I need good colour (if my dress is purple, I want it to show up as purple and not blue), macro, and shutter speed. Thanks lovelies~

OMG what a coincidence!!! Just last night I was looking up a dupe for MAC beauty marked, and the color in the WnW Lust palette came up!! Let us know what you think of the shadows! I just browsed Walgreens and they're not BOGO here :( But at $5/palette, that's less than $1 per color so I will def shell out if the shadows are good :)

I've never even purchased anything from Wet and Wild, but I love the Lust pallet. I have green eyes so I love wearing purple eye shadow too. That ES brush sounds so cool...I don't have any good brushes so I apply shadow with my finger...so it looks like I love to finger paint sometimes!
-Cheerio!
