If you’ve been following me on Twitter, or any other Irish beauty blogger for that matter, you may have noticed a few raves about a certain US beauty brand that has landed on our shores. Until now, Wet n Wild has been a brand we only managed to pick up on our infrequent trips Stateside but we’re no longer missing out, as the popular bargain beauty range has arrived and is now available in Dunnes Stores across the country.
While I’m sure some of you will have picked up a few of the brand’s products on your travels, I’m new to the brand and am feeling slightly excited about the whole thing. I’ve been hearing great things from my fellow bloggers (the longlasting lippy being a must buy apparently) and best of all, its products are really affordable.
Ranging from €1.99 (for single eyeshadow colours and lipliner pencils) to €4.99 (cream foundation) and €6.49 (for the Colour Icon eyeshadow collection), the products won’t break the bank – all the more reason to take them for a test run.
The brand launched at a special event in House Dublin on Leeson Street recently and I was lucky enough to pop along to see what it was all about. While the launch party was a happy mixture of cake pops, cupcakes and lots of cosmetics, it wasn’t too difficult to win the make-up posse over! But best of all, it was a chance to see (and try) all the products and I can safely say that its price point isn’t the only attractive selling point.
There were Wet n Wild make-up artists on hand at the launch to help you try and test the newest products to the range!
The Wet n Wild product range includes everything from mascaras, liquid liners and eyeshadow palettes to foundation, illuminating powder and nail colours. All between €1.99 and €6.49! There’s no excuse not to try it now!
I tried one of the MegaLast lip colours (€2.99) and was delighted to see its staying power was still going strong when I arrived home that evening. Other products I picked up at the launch included a Wild Shine nail colour base coat (€1.99), Coverall cream foundation (€4.99), a cream eyeshadow pencil and the Ultimate Brow Kit – product reviews coming very soon!
Wet n Wild have been around for 30 years and will be available in Dunnes Stores, selected Penneys and other retailers nationwide.
Cake pops and lipsticks galore. A winning combination every time! 🙂
