SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION WET N WILD ZODIAC COLLECTION: EARTH




Hi there, my darlings! How time flies! It seems like just yesterday that I began this series in February...and here we are, about to check out the last installment, in MAY! Where did the time go?! The Zodiac collection from Wet n Wild was a truly magnificent collection and overall, I'm super impressed with it. It just goes to show how far drugstore/affordable beauty has come. With that said, let's take a look at Zodiac Earth, the Element personified by Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.


MEGAGLO LOOSE HIGHLIGHTING POWDER ($3.49 USD, ON SALE)

Illuminate your inner aurora! Brush on a luminous sheen with high-impact glow for radiant cheekbones and an all-over shimmer thanks to this highlighter’s iridescent pearls. This buildable formula is silky to the touch and blends into the skin for an otherworldly gleam.



Last time I'm swatching this beauty and as you can see, it's gotten a fair bit of use! I don't usually reach much for loose highlighters, finding the mess too much to handle, but I love this shade and found multiple uses for it--highlighter, eyeshadow, etc. If you can find this, give it a whirl!




COLOR ICON EYESHADOW ($2.49 USD, ON SALE)

Dream up a heavenly eye look that’ll put the orb in orbit. From air to earth, fire to wind, each palette has six super-pigmented, metallic shades that are designed to highlight your element with shadows that build from subtle to sultry for an out-of-this-world look.


The shades in this palette are absolutely fabulous! From the intense pigmentation to the velvety texture to the ease of application, I cannot find one thing negative to say about this little compact. Yes, much like its sisters, it's a bear to try to keep the colors separate but these colors make it worth the while! I mean, just look at that green and the matte plum shade! No other words describe it other than WOW!




MEGAGLO HIGHLIGHTER BAR ($3.49 USD, ON SALE)

Tap into your earthly element for a perfectly ethereal lit-from-within glow. This highlighting bar delivers a strobing effect that’ll look like you've been kissed by the stars. It goes on super-smooth and can be applied both wet and dry for a luminous effect that’s uniquely you.


OK, I have a quibble with this highlighter. When I think Earth signs, I look for...well, earthier shades. I fully expected a bronze or copper highlighter. Yes, there's a tinge of bronze in there but this is mostly a light gold. Another light gold. Let's just say I'm underwhelmed.




COLOR ICON LIP GLOSS ($1.49 USD, ON SALE)

Embrace your star sign with an ultra-pigmented lip gloss hue that’s just for you. Swipe on for a mirror-like shine that embraces the beams of your rising sign. Argan, Macadamia, and Jojoba Oils keep your lips soft and moisturized for a perfectly kissable pout.



First up, the Taurus gloss: this one took me by surprise. I wouldn't necessarily associate Taurus women with pretty pinks but here we are. It IS a beautiful pink, though, and much more pigmented than I expected, and that too, with quite the intense shimmer.

On to Virgo's gloss. The mothership is a Virgo and she really would not touch this shade with a ten-foot pole. She favors classic shades, which I imagine many Virgos do. This is not a classic shade. It is far from classic but incredibly intriguing. A light mauve with a light blue-green shimmer, it's very unique, I would say.

Capricorn's gloss is definitely the one I found most aligned with how I think of practical Capricorn girls. It's a lighter berry with brown undertones and a pretty pink shimmer. I would have to say this one was my favorite!




ZODIAC WATER Bundle ($10.49 USD, ON SALE)

Practical, grounded and dependable – just like the shimmering hues inspired by the beauty of our Zodiac earth element set.

  2. I'd buy that eyeshadow in a hot second. I think the glosses are beautiful but even though I'm a Capricorn I'd rather buy the Taurus.
