Daily Moment of Mortification
A cute fireman came to my door today!
This being a hilly area surrounded by dry brush, the town’s fire dudes occasionally visit residents to warn/inform them about brush fires.
Right before the doorbell rang, I was swatching and
knee face deep in Wet n Wild’s $2 Color Icon Eyeshadow Singles, with Lagoon (a bright, shimmery blue) on my right eye and Envy (a shimmery jade) on my left.
NOTE TO SELF: Next time you’re doing something cray cray with your makeup…just assume someone (perhaps a hot fireman) is going to come to the door.
Humiliating moments aside, have you tried these budget singles yet? I can hardly believe they’re only $2 each (available in eight colors).
I’ve tried three of the shades so far — Lagoon and Envy (worn simultaneously in the pic above), and Kitten (a shimmery purple with golden glitter) — and I’m guessing these will make color freaks flip! All three are surprisingly rich, bold and buildable ($2!), with intense pigmentation and shimmer.
They’d be downright perfect if they applied a touch more evenly (they look a little patchy in places) and weren’t quite as powdery, but for $2? — I’ll gladly forgive and forget.

Next time you feel an itch to experiment with brights or feel like you could use a quick drugstore pick-me-up, keep these Wet n Wild Color Icon Singles in mind. I’d say they’re fireman approved…but judging by how quickly the guy left I’d say I scared him away! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
