Wet-n-Wild Makeup Review Update

***Click here to read the original post.***

I think this is the first time I've been so let down by a product that I posted a follow-up review, but here goes:  In my post-Halloween haul, I'd bought a Wet-n-Wild Fantasy Makers kit.  I'd torn open the package before I remembered to take the first picture, but it was the Bewitching Beauty kit.

I bought it so excited to see what it looked like as it appeared to be glitter cream shadows with LOTS of glitter.  The first swatch I did turned out just like I'd hoped, even though the glitter didn't show up in the picture.  It wasn't until about a week later when I went to wear the colors that I realized the pretty sparkle was only on the top layer.

Here, you can see what I'm talking about.  Not only is the glitter only on the top, but the colors seem to completely change after the top layer.

Close-up so you can see how there is NO GLITTER after the top layer.  It would have been better had they just included some eye-safe glitter to put over the top of the cream or pretty much anything other than just "Oh look, glitter!" to draw you in then dashing your glittery dreams.

I did find out, however, that you can use these with an angle eyeliner brush just as a cream liner, which is okay, but not what I wanted at all, so beware when you buy their products that they may not be what they appear to be.  :(  However, I do have a great review for the glitter tattoo kit by them I bought which I will post later!



  1. I hate when cosmetic companies put a spray on the top of products. What's the point? Its just ends with a disapointed customer. Looking forward to your glitter tattoo kit review. :)

    1. Agree, I'd never have bought it had the glitter not been there as I don't care for most regular cream shadows. Now, I'll be leery of any product I see from them that is supposed to be glittery.
