Wet n Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick Conceal (Nude For Thought)
I’m currently so enamored with Wet n Wild’s cushion foundation — seriously, the more I use it, the more I like it — I decided to take a closer look at some of their other face products that I’d ignored up until now.
I’ve mentioned before that I generally prefer stick concealers because they’re quick, convenient and usually contain waxes which means they’re usually waterproof (a necessity given my watery eyes) and do a great job of sealing in moisture. Well, Wet n Wild apparently has an entire line of concealer, contour and blush sticks.
I’m not one for contouring, so I decided to skip their contour sticks entirely and there’s only one shimmer-free blush stick that I’ll probably try eventually but I was mostly intrigued by the concealer sticks. Disappointingly, there are only 3 concealer shades. I feared that the lightest shade would be too light for me and the darkest, although it had a nice yellow undertone, looked like it would be too dark for me. That left me with the middle shade, Nude For Thought ($4.19 at CVS).
Physicians Formula LW2, Physicians Formula LN3, Wet n Wild Light Ivory, Wet n Wild Cream Ivory
So I went back to CVS as I said I would and picked up the second lightest shade of the Wet n Wild cushion foundation, Cream Ivory, as Light Ivory’s undertone didn’t look quite right on me. The shade itself is okay and I can make it work but I felt that a slightly warmer undertone would flatter my skin tone more. FYI: Light Ivory is described as Light Neutral and Cream Ivory is described as Light/Medium Warm.
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Color Correct Cushion Wonder – Peach
As I mentioned a few posts back, I picked up the Hard Candy Peach corrector from Walmart recently. Carah Amelie on YouTube raves about it and named it as one of her favorite beauty products of 2017. Hard Candy isn’t really a brand that I’ve explored much but such high praise really piqued my interest.
The corrector is available in 4 shades: Green, Lavender, Peach and Yellow. Out of all of those colors, I thought Peach would work best on my dark circles. The Cushion Wonder correctors retail for $6 each at Walmart.
I recently purchased the new Wet n Wild Photo Focus concealer from CVS for $3.99. I chose the second lightest out of six possible shades because the lightest shade, Light Ivory, looked a bit too pink for my liking whereas Light/Med Beige leaned more yellow.
I’ve seen a lot of people refer to the Photo Focus concealer as a Tarte Shape Tape dupe and it made me curious. As you may recall, I wasn’t a fan of Shape Tape. Although it had excellent coverage, I thought it looked very heavy and mask-like and emphasized skin texture and dryness, even when used sparingly. However, depsite my disappointment with Shape Tape, I was interested to see how Photo Focus compared to it.
I’m slowly but surely making my way through the new items that I hauled recently, one of them being the e.l.f. powder blush in the shade Blushing ($2) that I got at CVS.
