Wet n Wild Color Icon Pencil Swatches and a Born Pretty Giveaway

   Hello hello! How are you all today? Dustin and I's vacation is wrapping up and we will be going home in a few days. It was nice to not have my husband tied up with school so he could dedicate so much time to helping me with this blog! No worries though...we still find the time somehow! :)

   It's been a while since I have posted any makeup because polish will always be my first love, but I will be showing you a few of Wet n Wild's Color Icon eyeliner pencils today! I got these super cheap at about 60 cents each! Rite Aid had them 40% off a few weeks ago. But even at regular plrice (.99), these are still a steal!

  The shades I bought are: Purple, Amethyst, Turquoise, Cool Green, and Sky Blue.

And then in reverse order than above, swatches. All of these went on very smoothly with no dragging. The pencils are very soft so it makes application easy. The downside of that is that the pencil dulls pretty quickly. But the pencils are pretty long and regardless of frequent sharpening, will last a long time.

Here's an eye look I did using Purple. I applied ELF Eyelid Primer and then I lined my upper and lower lids with the pencil. After that,  I patted ELF Mineral loose eyeshadow in Flirty on the upper lid only to the crease and inner corner of the eye.

And here is another eye look using Cool Green. Same steps as above. For shadow, I mixed the top and middle shades in Wet n Wild's I Dream of Greenie palette. Both these looks lasted mostly all day.

I love doing these eye looks because they are easy, but still add some drama to your everyday look without being too over the top. Do you guys like these pencils? I think they are a great quality and value.    
 I don't like to invest in high end brands of makeup so I can focus more on polish...not that I like all drugstore brands, but ones like Wet n Wild and ELF make that easy!

Also, as their facebook admin, I am hosting a giveaway of some things from Born Pretty on their facebook page. It ends Sunday so go enter! :)

One more thing before I end this post: I entered a manicure contest over at Lacquered Me. My mani is number 21 and you can vote on her FB page OR her blog. I would love to have your vote! Thanks ladies! <3

  1. I recently discovered how wonderful the eyeshadows are from Wet N Wild. Now I need to try these liners. They all look so pretty.

  2. I owned the green liner but mine was very hard which lead me to tossing it. I have to say, you have the most beautiful eye colour!

  3. Wowzer's, these looks awesome!! Thanks for sharing :)
