Today’s post is a rather picture heavy collection of swatches that looks at some beautiful pieces from Wild About Beauty. These products are perfect for Autumn and Winter and shortly I will be doing a face of the day to show you just how beautiful they really are on the skin.
This is the first lipstick I have tried from Wild About Beauty and I have to say, I really love the Nutrilips Colour formula. Its creamy, smooth and super hydrating. The pigmentation is good and I liked the sweet aroma from the product (Although for those who do not like lipsticks with a scent, I’d try before you buy).
Bobby, is a beautiful pink/peach nude. It is a creme formula and looks slightly matte on the lips till the light hits it (As you can see from the swatch) and you get a beautiful sheen. This nude is gorgeous, its your lips but better. With the hydrating properties too its perfect for Autumn/Fall when the weather changes and our lips take the brunt of it.
When it comes to eyeshadow formula, I do think Wild About Beauty have it sussed. Their eyeshadows are buttery and pigmented. I find they build up easily on the eyes and the colour pay off is great too.
Jody was a little scary at first in the pan, namely as it looks more of a blue toned grey. However, as you can see when swatched it has the ‘smokey’ appeal. Almost like a blended out black. This colour has so many uses. Great for crease definition, for making a colour deeper, a subtle alternative to liner on the lash line (Also the pigmentation when wet it fantastic as liner too) and if you want to do a smokey rock chick eye, you really can get away with just this product. This is a huge favourite for me!
Heather like the name looks purple and pretty. It does remind me of fields of flowers. However, once swatched you will be surprised to see there is more of a damson tone to this beautiful eye shadow.
I usually steer away from colours like this, but have found with a neutral eye this colour in the outer ‘V’ can look AMAZING! Also, using this on the lower lash line over the Eyeshadow Pencil Duo in Penny looks beautiful!
Oh Fern. Fern is the most beautiful Autumnal orange toned copper. Out of all my eye shadows (And I have a ridiculous collection), I do not have anything like it at all. Even the images do not do this beautiful colour justice.
Fern looks amazing on the crease and lid. On the lower lash line it really brings out your eyes (Especially if you have blue eyes like mine). I like applying this all over my lid, then wetting a small brush and applying a little in the middle of my lid to make it pop!
As I mentioned before Penny looks gorgeous when combined with the powder shadow in Heather. This double sided eyeshadow pencil is a clever crease-proof eye shadow and liner all in one. I adore the colour and although its not something I would normally wear, do think on Hazel eyes this would look amazing! The shadow end is great for applying and then blending out with a blush, it works great as a base and I love that the you have a contrasting liner too.
Who doesn’t love a black eye liner? I think black is probably the most worn throughout the world and the Kajal Pencil Duo has been my pencil of choice since I got it. It is black and I mean black, although the thicker kajal end in my opinion comes off slightly more intense. If you like a black, smokey, grunge black liner look, this is definitely for you. I find the colours blend really well, last on my eyes and really intensify my lashes too. I will say that this does shift on my waterline, so do not think it is waterpoof. Do not be put off by this products shade name of Mauve, its a carbon black rest assured.
When it comes to nails, we know this is one of my biggest obsessions. I am exceptionally picky when it comes to formula and testing nail varnishes. As my biggest pet hate is chipped nails (I cannot stand to see them!!), when I tried these 2 polishes from Wild About Beauty I was so impressed that once I wore them 4 day and went on to reapply my nail polish again, I used these polishes again! Which is almost unheard of with me (Usually I like a bit of variety!).
Jake is one of those colours that proves that you must swatch it first. If I’d have gone into a shop and looked at this polish I wouldn’t have bought it. It really looks like it has more of a shimmer finish to it which I don’t personally love and almost is a deep copper in colour. I could not have been more wrong. This is a gloss finish polish.
Jake is a deep russet brown which looks almost black. There isn’t really any shimmer there at all, on the nails it looks more like a creme formula with dimension to it. I absolutely adore this shade and 1 coat was enough due to it being so pigmented! It lasted 4 days without chipping and no top coat (But I do currently have tips on and this can help with nail varnish longevity).
If black polish is you thing, then please take a look at Michael. He is a beautiful rich black although I would class him more of a mid gloss, or demi matte finish. There certainly wasn’t as much shine there are Jake had. This polish looks beautiful on almost any shape and length nails. I think long gone are the days when black was reserved for goths!
Michael needed 2 coats to get a good opaque finish and in honesty at 4 days when I changed my polish still has not chipped (That again is without a top coat). I have been so impressed with these nail polishes, I definitely would invest in more shades and also use them on clients, especially when they are so reasonably priced in my opinion.
Over all, I have loved playing with these Autumnal shades and love them! I can see them carrying through to Winter easily too and some items are definitely becoming staples in my collection. Make sure to check out some of my face of the day posts soon showing looks I have created using these products.
