fergalicious definition make them boys go loco.
Over the holidays, I received an awful lot of makeup. (I guess my family knows me pretty well!) So, I have been doing my very best to try out all of the new products in my collection. To start with, I thought that I would review some new Wet n' Wild eye kits.
Let me just say, I adore Fergie. I am such a huge fan of her music. Unfortunately, we don't really get a lot of her Wet n' Wild line where I live. So, when I received these two Wet n' Wild Fergie sets, I was super excited! They are: Glamorous Dutchess and Vicious Fergalicious. Ready to take a closer look at Glamorous Dutchess.
This is supposed to be "for your glam side" and includes a silver eyeliner pencil, a black liquid eyeliner, an eyeshadow quad, a mini mascara, a fluffy eyeshadow brush and a lash comb. It also has a little makeup tutorial on the inside flap! Another notable aspect of this Wet n' Wild eye kit? The packaging. Each one is like a little book that can stack on your shelf or counter. It definitely looks great, which is always a plus.
There were a few really great things about this set. For starters, that silver eyeliner pencil is fantastic. It is super pigmented and has a lot of glide to it. And I really don't have anything like it in my makeup collection! As for the black liquid liner, it was fairly standard - but had really good staying power. Plus, that little eyeshadow brush is great for blending out. The mascara didn't wow me, but I didn't imagine it would. I really like that they thought to include a mascara in this set...it just simply wasn't for me.
Here is a closer look at the eyeliners that came along with the set (I love, love, love that silver one!):
Now for the eyeshadow quad. As an eyeshadow lover, I was really excited to try these shades out. Here's the thing, I wasn't disappointed in them...they were just different than I expected. In the packaging they looked like really warm shades. There was a purpleish kind of colour that I was really intrigued by.
When I actually went to try them out though, they looked quite different. They were actually pretty icy and wintery, with a bluish undertone. There was no purple at all! I think the colours look great, but I wouldn't say they really fall into the glam category. Just take a look at the swatches below and you'll see what I mean.
In terms of the pigmentation and fall out, I would say these are so-so. They have a decent amount of colour payoff, but they aren't quite as good as the regular Wet n' Wild eyeshadows. There is a little bit of fall out for some of the deeper shades but it's nothing that can be worked with. I would definitely recommend using a primer with these though, just to help them stay longer.
Overall, I was pretty pleased with this set. Not all of the products were incredible....but there were just so many to try out. This kit had such a wide variety of eyeliners and even came with some brushes. This would great for someone who doesn't have a lot of makeup in their collection already. (Or for someone who really loves Fergie!)
Here is the makeup look that I created using the Glamorous Dutchess set from Wet n' Wild.
In my next blog post, you can take a peek at Fergie's Wet n' Wild eye kit: Vicious Fergalicious!
