Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette Swatches and Review

This is one of three 8 pan palettes wet n wild released in 2011 which are exclusive to wal-mart and walgreens and replaced the 6 pan palettes in those stores. The one I have picked and maybe the last one I will pick up is comfort zone. I picked it up at walgreens for a measly $4.99 which is a great deal for 8 shadows. What I am going to do to let you know what I think about each shadow is describe the shades and let you know what I think about the formulation.

Overall: 28/35: 80% : B
Product: 10/10
Price: 5/5
Shade: 5/10
Pigment: 8/10

Overall this palette is very pigmented, affordable and great if you like the colors. If I had been more fond of the shades, this definitely would be a holy grail product. Check it out if you like these types of colors although I think the palette is worth it just for the right definer shade.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Blush in Berry

Most of you must have taken advantage of CVS's super cosmetic sale a few months back where most makeup was slashed down 50-75%. One of the products that I picked up during that sale was Rimmel London's Lasting Finish Blush in the shade Berry which you can pick up on Amazon for $7.85.

I would describe this blush as a frosty purple-pink berry shade. It is much more intimidating in the pan than on the face. I love the subtle sheen it gives when applied that brightens up my face without looking glittery or fake.  This is a pretty blush for fair to medium skin tones but darker mediums should shy away since it's not crazy pigmented and I think will be too much of a hassle to put on. These blushes are pretty affordable at your local wal-mart so I recommend checking it out. It's one of those "easy peasy" blushes that you can wear when you are not really sure what to pop on your face. (That sounded gross) :)

Overall thoughts on the product?
I think it's a gorgeous everyday blush that everyone should take a look at. It's not your everyday pink but I'm sure it's not too far out of most girls' comfort zone.

Overall: 28/35: 80% : B

Shade: 7/10

Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush in Smooth Talker: Review

Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush in Smooth Talker

I have recently been bitten by a crazy little fox. If you are are around the YouTube or blog world you know that Hard Candy has recently released a set of blushes that are reminescent a blatant copy of Benefit's boxed blushes that retail for $28. 

I stopped by local Wal-Mart which is in Manatí, Puerto Rico late at night and decided to check to see if we already got our Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blushes. *Ding Ding Ding*, we did and there was a display of three shades and only two were available which are Spicy and Sweet  and Smooth Talker. I had recently seen Productrater's review saying that there were rumors that HC's Smooth Talker was a dupe for Benefit's Sugarbomb I decided to pick it up. Honestly, they look so similar in the pan except that Benefit's quad was divided by triangles and Hard Candy's were four squares.

Honestly, in the box it didn't look that appealing but I decided to buy it anyway. When I got to my dorm I opened them up grabbed by handy Sigma F40 blush brush and went to town. What an ugly suprise when this little blush did not show up on my face. I piled and piled and I got nothing more than a faint peachy blush. Nothing nearly as noticible for my liking and I'm a pretty pale girl. Also, when I rubbed my brush around I found it to be extremely powdery and left a mess all over my counter. Maybe next time I'll try another shade but I really doubt that I would like to give another blush a try.

Oh, just so you know. Hard Candy says they don't test on animals that makes me and my doggy happy :)

Have you tried it, what do you think? Recommendations?

This blush is available in Walmart for $5.99
Overall: 10/35: 29% : F
Product: 1/10
Price: 2/5
Shade: 6/10
Pigment: 1/10

I guess it would be an okay blush for the fairest of the fair who can't pull off highly pigmented blushes but honestly I'd rather have a crazy pigmented blush and apply it lightly. I've heard good thing about Hot Flash, maybe that'd be better luck?

Here's are some swatches after the jump:
