Wet n Wild Zodiac Highlighter Swatches

Wet n Wild Zodiac Highlighters 
Wet n Wild Zodiac Collection has launched! It's now available on their website and exclusively at Walmart US, sadly this one isn't coming to Canadian stores. If you do want to pick it up you can grab it on the Wet n Wild website. If you'd like to see the Wet n Wild Zodiac collection in action I have a full try-on and review video
Wet n Wild Zodiac Fire Highlighter
Wet n Wild Zodiac Earth Highlighter 
I plan to review the entire collection here on my blog but today we're chatting about the Zodiac MegaGlo Highlighting Bars and the MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder. In general, Wet n Wild makes some of my favorite highlighters at the drugstore. Not just because they are affordable either, the formula rivals high end. Super smooth, glowy and great shades. 
Wet n Wild Zodiac Air Highlighter
Wet n Wild Zodiac Water Highlighter 
What I love about Wet n Wild's collections is that they don't sacrifice quality when launching specialty and limited edition collections. The Wet n Wild Zodiac Highlighters are great, that same quality in fun, zodiac themed packaging. The bars are my favorites, in general I tend to prefer their pressed over loose powder - less glitter. 
Wet n Wild Zodiac Highlighter Swatches
Of all the highlighting bars my favourite shades are Fire and then Earth. These retail for $6.99. Fire has a gorgeous warm underdone that is more copper, great for a deeper skin tone. Earth is a true gold, which I always love! For me, Air is a little too light - but great if you have a more fair skin tone with pink undertones.  Water, is a miss, in my opinion. Blue highlights aren't for me, I actually didn't mind their blue mega glo highlight from last year but this one just has too much depth. I haven't tried it on my skin but I'd assume it would look bruise-ish. 
Wet n Wild Zodiac Loose Highlighter
The Wet n Wild Zodiac MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder in Written in the Stars, this one wasn't for me either. This retails for $5.99. Again, personal preference, it has a light pink frosty tone which is just too light for my skin. It also contains slight glitter which I don't love, but I think it could be great on the body! 
Wet n Wild Zodiac Loose Highlighter Swatches
Overall, I highly recommend the highlighting bars - great texture, shades, and so affordable! Will you be picking up anything from this collection?

New Covergirl TruNaked Palettes Swatches 2018

New Covergirl Makeup 2018
Covergirl has launched a new line of just about everything, foundation, concealer, face and eye palettes. See the entire collection in my Covergirl 2018 Launch Video. Today we are chatting about their TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes.
Covergirl TruNaked Dazed Eyeshadow Palette Swatches
I've always been a fan of the Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes, I thought they were incredible quality when they first launched a few years ago. Drugstore eyeshadow palettes can be pretty crappy in my opinion but those were great. That being said, they lacked mattes which almost all drugstore palettes do for some reason? That's what makes the latest iteration of the Tru Naked Palettes  great, mattes, and warm shades. 
Covergirl TruNaked Peach Punch Eyeshadow Palette Swatches
These palettes for the most part are dupes for high end palettes. I've talked about my thoughts on drugstore brands playing copycat time and time again so I'll leave it. If you'd like to see the dupes posts I've covered those for both the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Dupe and Anastasia Modern Renaissance Dupe
Covergirl TruNaked Sunsets Eyeshadow Palette Swatches
Oveall, highly recommend these palettes. I think they are great, drugstore or not the quality is there! If you're in the market for something affordable, travel friendly or just want to grow your collection these are a great option.

Too Faced Peach Palette Dupe: Covergirl TruNaked Peach Punch Palette

Covergirl Peach Punch Palette Too Faced Peach Palette Dupe! 
Covergirl has launched a new line of just about everything, foundation, concealer, face and eye palettes. See the entire collection in my Covergirl 2018 Launch Video. Today we are chatting about one palette specifically the Covergirl Peach Punch Palette
Covergirl TruNaked Peach Punch Palette 
I've always been a fan of the Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes, I thought they were incredible quality. Drugstore eyeshadow palettes can be pretty lame in my opinion but these are great. Same can be said for the latest launch of these palettes that they released. Actually, they are even better because there are more warm and matte shades! 
Covergirl Peach Punch Swatches 
The Covergirl Peach Punch Palette looked like it was a dupe or at least an attempted dupe for the Too Faced Peach Palette. This palette is also lightly peach scented, nothing that sticks around too much. 
Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Dupe - Covergirl Tru Naked Peach Punch 
In my opinion, the Covergirl Peach Punch Eyeshadow Palette is a close dupe for the Too Faced Peach Palette. Glaring difference is that the Covergirl has less shades so you are missing shades, the green which would make the palette even more versatile. That being said I don't really miss the green. I think if you were intrigued by the Too Faced Peach Palette but never pulled the trigger and wanted similar shades this could be great. Sometimes larger palettes can be overwhelming so this gives you less shades to work with.

If you'd like to see these products in action check out my New Rimmel 2018 Video, I also have a blog post on the Rimmel Magnf'eyes Spice Edition Palette. I thought I'd swatch a few of the products today so you can see what you may want to pick up. In all honesty I did not like the initial Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palettes, but I recommend these!
