Review: Wet-n-Wild Take On the Day Eyeshadow Primer

Image
Hello gentle readers. Today I would like to share a review of of a product I picked up at my local Walgreen's, the other day. Part of the new Wet-n-Wild Fergie cosmetic line is their Take On the Day eyeshadow primer. Wait! What-what? Wet-n-Wild makes an eyeshadow primer? I was surprised and delighted to find this product when I did my latest Walgreen's beauty department crawl. It cost me $4.99 USD. Not too shabby, especially if it works. Wet-n-Wild Take On the Day eyeshadow primer. The packaging is a very low quality black tube that holds 0.34 fl oz. or 19 mL of product. The package claims is that this product primes and preps, lasts all day and doesn't crease.  Wet n Wild Take on the Day eyeshadow primer is a lightly pigmented pink leaning nude. The texture is very smooth, quite silky, in fact. The primer has very nice slip, it smooths easily across the lids, gives a few moments to work with it then quickly sets to a clear, softly diffused satin mat

OPI Jade is the New Black: Swatch and Review

Hello gentle readers. Today I am featuring a polish I lemming'd on for a long time and I finally bought it. I don't know why I waited so long to buy this polish. I am just weird like that, I guess. OPI Jade is the New Black is from the Hong Kong Collection from 2010. It is a rich, shiny, dark jade green creme. This swatch is two coats and Seche Vite. The formula on this is pretty fabulous, It applies smoothly and is easy to control, there is no running, pooling, dragging, bubbling and other nonsense. It was a little streaky after the first coat but the second coat made this perfectly smooth and fully opaque. Dry time is good. There is a little weirdness on my middle finger nail, it isn't the polish, I ended up with an invisible fiber that mucked up the works. Grrrrr! I tried to smooth it out a little with the airbrush tool n Picasa... I don't know how well I did. But I gave it a shot. Do you own OPI Jade is the New Black? How much do you love it? If you h
