Hey Everyone!

Next up from Wet N' Wild Where's the Party ColorIcon Holiday 2012 is Sparkle 'Til Morning. Check out my swatches and look for Shimmer The Night Away HERE

Sparkle Til' Morning is the palette I really wanted out of the collection. I love neutrals with a pop color.

 Swatches for Sparkle 'Til Morning. They came out really light and flimsy. I was lightweight not happy about that.:/
Here's the look I came up with for Sparkle 'Til Morning. Most of the neutral on the top lid and I used the turquoise green on the bottom lid with a wet smudging brush with some MAC Fix+.


The colors are beautiful and the palette as an artistic whole is aesthetically perfect to me. However, after using it, I was reminded that I have many of these colors in my collection, just not together in a 8-pan.

~Swatches + FOTD~ Wet N' Wild Shimmer The Night Away.......

Hey Everyone!

I can't call it. I've been having the best luck finding this season's must have and highly hunted drugstore makeup and limited edition items. I never go into any other CVS' other than my hometown ones. On this past Saturday, I went into a Spartanburg area CVS and there they were...Wet N' Wild Where's The Party ColorIcon Holiday 2012 8-pans. I literally SCREAMED! lol!

I really only wanted Sparkle Til' Morning but the BOGO FREE Sunday sale had already started in my area so I went ahead and grabbed Shimmer The Night Away. I have the I Heart Matte 8-pan from last year so I didn't get the other palette on the display.

 Swatches of Shimmer the Night Away. I liked that dark blue the best.....
 Here's the look I came up with using Shimmer The Night Away.....
 I free styled this one...can't remember what color is where. lol! However the the light lavender shade is on my lid and it was the hardest to build. Its sheer as all get out!

I used the blue on the lower lid on a wet brush with MAC Fix +.


Its a beautiful palette. I'm glad I got it, just for the blue shade!
