Highlighting & Contouring ft Wet n Wild.

Wet n Wild has released reformulated and repackaged versions of their Wet n Wild MegaGlo Illuminating Palette and the Wet n Wild MegaGlo Contouring Palette. I purchased both products at my local Walgreen store. The contouring palette is available in two shades and so far I've only seen the illuminating palette in one shade.


MegaGlo Illuminating Palette

Description: This compact is how we see our group of friends. You usually have four of them: one wild, one bold, one sweet, and one reasonable. You always have fun hanging out all together, but sometimes, you only want to mix one or two. So go ahead, swirl together your best combination! Leaves a subtle iridescence and a luminous glow on any complexion to highlight your face, neck, chest, and body.

Retail Price: $4.99

MegaGlo Contouring Palette

Description: This duo of perfectly complementary contouring powders delivers a flawlessly sculpted face in no time flat. The deeper color defines while the lighter color highlights your best features, leaving you at your #nofilter best, whatever the occasion.

Retail Price: $4.99

I picked up the MegaGlo Illuminating Palette Catwalk Pink and the MegaGlo Contouring Palette in Caramel Toffee.


Be sure to watch the video to see a demo using the Wet n Wild products to highlight and contour!

Here are the final results after using both products for highlighting and contouring!

City Color Creamy Lips & Swatches.

City Color Cosmetics is a brand I've been loving a lot lately. They offer great products at an affordable price. You can visit the website here and don't forget to use code GlamMorena to save an additional 10% off! Free shipping is available with $25 or more orders if you're in the U.S.

One of the first products I tried from the brand were the Creamy Lips. There are a total of 12 shades available. The formula is that of a liquid lipstick, but not to be mistaken for a matte liquid lipsticks. It's definitely more of a gloss and lipstick hybrid.

I have six shades of the City Color Creamy Lips.

Description: With true opaque color, City Color Creamy Lips is a lip paint that just won't quit! A little goes a long way with this ultra pigmented formula - only a light touch is needed for full coverage with only one layer. Sets to a lightweight, semi matte finish that doesn't dry out and keeps your lips natural moisture preserved.

Retail Price: $4.99

Available: City Color Cosmetics Website - Save 10%  off with code GlamMorena!

Shades: Blackberry Mojito, Cherry Daiquiri, Chocolate Merlot, Flirtini, Tickled Pink, and Sweet Sangria.

The Creamy Lips features your standard doe foot applicator. It makes application easy!
