All the beauty blogs and groups are abuzz over the Flora and Fauna sets by Wet n Wild. I happened to come across a few at my nearby under-shopped Rite Aid. I only picked up the Flora set #1 because I'm on a "no-buy" this month and didn't want to totally cheat and #2, I already had the nail polish color that was in the Fauna set. Plus the orange in this eyeshadow trio sold the whole set for me. I mean look at that thing! That's ORANGE!
I decided to do the eyeshadow like the imprints on the pallete. I used the chartruese all over the brow and the orange on the lid.
Then I added the teal color into the crease and the outer triangle.
I followed it up with black liquid liner.
This is the first time I've used Wet n Wild eyeshadows. I've read blogs where people have compared their new formulas to MAC and they rave on and on about them. I have to seriously disagree. Although the colors are really nice they took a lot of layering to get a good solid color. I also had a bit of trouble getting them to blend properly. It took a little more work than what I'm used to.
The lip gloss went on really nice and smooth. There wasn't really any color too it but it has a nice shine and flavor. I didn't used the nail polish but its a bright chartreuse color so I'm sure I'll use it quite a bit. The blush was a beautiful neutral shade, unfortunately it was such a small little strip of it in the palette that it was kind of hard to get to.
I don't want to seem too negative. The whole set is $4.99 so it's a really good deal. I will be trying the eyeshadow palette again to use the orange in a more prominent way. I just wish the colors had gone on a little smoother.
Ultimately I wouldn't recommend this set unless you didn't want to spend a bunch of money and really wanted some bright eyeshadow colors. But I am basing this mostly on the eyeshadow alone. The packaging is really nice and you get a lot of products for a small amount of money. If you're already a Wet n Wild eyeshadow fan you might be more impressed. :)
