USA Haul Part 1- (Lipsticks: Wet n' Wild, Loreal,and Revlon)

Hows your week so far? Ecerything good?

I went for a 3 day vacation in Seattle which is about 3 hours drive from Vancouver. I went with my family and thankfully it is a bit warmer there compared to Vancouver. I told myself that I should TRY to MINIMIZE my spending,but look what happened!? LOOK!

I ended up with seven lipsticks...

> Revlon Cherry Ice- A wearable Red with a hint of pink/coral. This is a good dupe for MAC Viva Glam Cyndi, but lighter and pinker.
> Revlon Cherris in the Snow- Bright magenta red. Think MAC Impassioned, but more wearable.
> Wet n' Wild 900B- Nude peach
> Wet n' Wild 903C- Nude with slight peachy orange undertones.
> Wet n' Wild 901 B- A very Wearable pink. Think MAC Angel but a little bit brighter.
> Wet n' Wild 909D-A wearble reddish coral, perfect for spring/summer.
> Loreal British Red- Classic red.

I'll start off with the Revlons and the Loreal lippies

I went looking for this revlon lipstick everywhere in Canada, but couldn't find it. I finally found Revlon Cherries in the Snow at Target.

Hand swatch: Loreal British Red-350 (Love the name!), Revlon Cherry Ice-012, and Revlon Cherries in the Snow-440 (I finally have you!)

and then the Wet n' Wilds...

Let me tell you a "short" story about why I bought these lipsticks. I saw Temptalia's tempting lip swatch of Wet n' Wild 909D on her blog and I got sucked it. These lipsticks cost $2.99 and they had a promotion Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price at Fred Meyers. WHAT A DEAL right?

These lipsticks are super creamy just like MAC's cremesheens and they are pigmented as well. When I first swatched them on my hand, they felt hard and a bit dry, but when I applied them on my lips when I got back to my hotel, they were super creamy and they glided on my lips like butter. If you ask me about their packaging, I would say they look cheap, but for the price, they are worth it. So for the WnW lipsticks, I only paid less than $10!

so anyways..heres some photos

hand swatch:Wet n' Wild 900B, 903C, 901B, 909D

I have lip swatches of Wet n' Wild 909D and 900B

Final thoughts: I'm ready for spring/summer and I'm very happy with all of these lipsticks I bought. I finally found Revlon Cherries in the Snow. I would suggest trying the Wet n' Wild
Have a lovely week everyone and thank you for reading.


  1. great haul! those wnw lipsticks look amazing!!
    they carry wnw at walmart in canada, so im def going to have a look!

  2. @christine- you should! Tell me how much because if they are the same price or a little more expensive than 2.99, I might get some too. I want more!

  3. I want that Revlon Cherry Ice now; damn you!

  4. I'm so jealous. I have been wanting to try wet n wild lippies since forever. I have the bare it all one coming from a blog sale but I would love it if I can get more. I'm from Malta in Europe - and we don't get wet n wild, and you can't get wet n wild online either :( Oh well. Thank for feeding my addiction ahha xD
    I love love love the shades you got :D xxxx

  5. @Poorcolledgestudent- HAHA! awwe so sorry.Get Cherries in the snow!

  6. @Dyna- Thanks and I'm sorry to hear that, but you have Barry M's right? I need Barry M in Canada :)

  7. No no Barry M in Malta haha xD I wish. But we can get them online, I'm thinking about ordering actually. I just bought a barry m lippie from a blog sale, I'll see how that goes and if I like it, I'll grab a couple more shades xD

  8. i love Revlon so much.
    I bought a bunch of their lipsticks recently too. I use wet n wild nail polish, occasionally. You know another cheaper brand is NYC which is pretty great, nail polish, mascara

  9. @Dyna- oh thats good. Shipping here in Canada is INSANE!!! haha

  10. @Alexis- I love NYC too, but we have limited se;ection if NYC products here. :)

  11. =/ That's a shame
    Barry M though charges a bit too much for shipping. I have to pay £10 to order something. Which is too much for cosmetics, but I'll definitely try to find a cheaper alternative if I can. But I am probably going to give in to temptation, or find someone else in Malta who'd love to order and share the shipping fees. I don't know. We'll see haha :D
    Thank you for your response, you're so sweet xx

  12. @Dyna- Thats a great idea :) Np, thanks for reading my post :)

  13. Im so tempted to buy a new lipstick shade now! =)

  14. haha its always so hard to not spend when you are on a trip.... :) nice finds! great colour choice as always :)
