Wet n Wild Venice Beach LE palettes10:00 AM
*screams* I am so thrilled. I've been looking for the Wet n' Wild Limited Edition summer Venice Beach palettes for THE LONGEST TIME. I mean, as soon as I heard back in June that Wet n Wild would be coming out with 8-pan colorful eyeshadows, I knew I had to have them.
It took me an excruciating amount of time, but I finally managed to nab both "Boardwalk Boozing" and "Hemporary Solutions," the two palettes that I've been eyeing for the longest time. The Venice Beach collection also has a third palette full of purples and blues, but I passed on it since I have quite a collection of purple and blue shades in my makeup stash already.
Boardwalk Boozing has a nice variety of rainbow colors. Surprisingly, with both palettes I found that the mattes came out better than the shades with glitter or a metallic/satin finish, which almost never is the case for me. I was in love with the Electric Palette from Urban Decay, but I think these two palettes have fulfilled all my rainbow eyeshadow wishes. I do wish that I was able to grab an extra two for future backups, but these unfortunately were the last two palettes in my drugstore (good thing I got to them on time).
If you're still looking for these palettes--don't give up hope! Call all the drugstores nearest you to check if they still have them in stock. They're definitely worth the hunt.
[And, as a personal update, I know I've been super MIA on the blog. I'm working (actually) on taking more blog photos, and especially planning outfit posts. I know my last few posts have all been about makeup, so I'll try to change it up.
I've also been thinking up some cool projects that I'm planning on starting before my summer ends. I'll fill you in on the surprise later!]
