I've Tried It!: Wet n' Wild Trio in Walking On Eggshells

Hey everyone! Today's post is a review. Today's review is on the Wet n' Wild Trio in Walking on Eggshells! This trio costs only $2.99 at your local drugstore. It features an eyelid,crease and browbone color. It comes with a dual ended sponge tip applicator and small brush. The eyelid color is a shimmery pink color. Quick Fact: The eyelid color in this trio is almost an exact dupe for the MAC eyeshadow in All That Glitters. The crease color is a Matte Chocolate brown. The browbone color is a light champagne color. Below is pictures and a tutorial on this product!


Below is the Pic-Tutorial!

Step 1: Prime the eye with any eye primer you choose! I picked the MAC Paint Pot in Painterly.
Step 2: Using the dual ended sponge tip applicator, apply the eyelid color onto the eyelid. (As Pictured)

Step 3: Using the same sponge tip applicator apply the browbone color directly under the brow.

Step 4: Using the brush provided, apply the crese color directly in to the crease.

I've Tried It!: Benefit Posie Tint

Hey Everyone! I have been asking a couple of my followers for a while, what I should name my reviews, and after many choices were sent in, the winner was "I've Tried It". Whenever you see a post that starts with "I've Tried It", it is a review on a certain product. Today's featured product is the Benefit Posie Tint. This product is both a cheek stain and a lip stain. I also like that it is a 2 in 1 because instead of bringing a blush and a lipstick, you can just bring the Posie Tint. There is also two other cheek and lip stains that benefit sells. Benetint is a rose colored cheek and lip stain.

Chachatint is a mango tinted lip and cheek stain.

And of course the Posietint is a poppy-pink tinted lip and cheek stain.

The Posietint is a light pink color that is perfect for an everyday lip. This is also more flattering on lighter skin tones. For medium-dark skin tones I reccomend the Benetint or the Chachatint. This product is $29 and is sold at Ulta or Sephora.

1.) Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Shadow in Gold Rush
