Makeup Review: Wet ‘n’ Wild Liquid Catsuit

I’ve heard a lot about the Wet ‘n’ Wild Liquid Catsuit liquid lipsticks over the past couple of months, and when they popped up on sale at Target I decided to bite the bullet and try them out. Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks, but they’re incredibly practical for work. When I’m in characters, I sweat like crazy, plus I’m constantly chugging water. When I’m in gangster, I have interference from my Britney Spears mic, and in bandit I wear a bandana over my mouth that gets tugged down. So you can see why I have to have lip colors that won’t smear on me.

 

I picked up two shades, Give Me Mocha (a warm brown with a hint of rose) and Missy and Fierce (a bright true red). The more neutral color is for bandit, and the vampy red for gangster- I like matching my makeup to my costume.

 

The tubes are a good size- not too big, not too small- and hold a good amount of product. The applicator feels like a doefoot, but with a little more give to it. Definitely easy to apply (for a liquid lipstick) and easy to control.

 

The first color I tried was Give Me Mocha. It needed a few swipes before my lips were fully filled in- the color was patchy with just one layer- but with a second it was perfect. The texture was a little tacky for the first few minutes, but dried down pretty quickly and was surprisingly comfortable. I did notice a little flaking throughout the day, but I was able to wear the lip color from the time work started at 9:30 all the way until I got home around seven. Ordinarily I probably would have touched up my color after work, but since this was a test run, I left it alone and still wasn’t completely embarrassed to leave it on my face! I was really impressed that there was absolutely no color transfer onto my bandana, even though it was dragged over my mouth at least twenty times during the day.

 

 

I tried Missy and Fierce for my next gangster shift. (I’ve also decided that Missy and Fierce will be the name of my next bluegrass duo band). This time the color went on in a single layer with no patchiness- and most notably, no bleeding around my mouth. However, it did wear off more than Give Me Mocha did. After lunch, the inner corners of my mouth were completely colorless. At least no one could see that unless I opened my mouth really wide!

All in all I would give the Wet ‘n’ Wild Liquid Catsuit lipsticks a 5/5! The formula is incredibly comfortable, the wear is good enough (I personally don’t mind reapplying after a meal), and the colors are beautiful. Plus, at $5 and easy to find in most stores, it’s a steal!

(also, if anyone has a suggestion for an eyeliner that won’t smudge, I will give you my first born child in exchange.)

Look of the Day: 1920s


I have always been so scared of sidebuns! I was afraid they would make my head look fat and lopsided. Which is…admittedly…a strange fear. But still! I LOVE how this hair and makeup turned out. Like, totally.

Hairrrr:


#1: I spritzed leave-in conditioner (the Healthy Sexy Hair stuff, purchased for super cheapo at Ross) on second day hair, combed it out, and teased the top a bit.

#2: I gathered the hair into a loose ponytail on the side, teased it, and kinda…piled it up into a loose loopy bun. And then stuck bobby pins in it till it looked okay. And then put in a little flower snap clip that a friend made for me.

#3: Spritz all the hairs with hairspray, straighten the bangs, and voila!

Melissa cracks me up so much, you guys! She’s a Tennessee girl like me and she’s hilarious. No filter whatsoever, and I love it. She’s so sweet and extroverted and friendly and her videos are super fun.

I didn’t do false lashes or a quite-as-bright lipstick, and I didn’t do the smokey-bottom-lash stuff, but I REALLY love how this look turned out on me. And I especially love how it works with the hair.

Outfit of the Day: Pocket Full of Sunshine

I tried smiling better. I think I look like Lumpy Space Princess.

Anyways.

I’ve reached that point where i hate every single item in my wardrobe. Do you ever get that, or is that just me? I’m just so bored with my clothes. Plus I haven’t gone running in ages so I’ve gotten all squishy and lumpy.

Again, Lumpy Space Princess.

Today is the first day of the year that I’ve broken out my favorite pair of sandals! It’s been in the 70s and 80s all week, so I figured it was time. Aren’t they cute?

(They also fasten with velcro. And are size 4 1/2 in childrens. And are from the iCarly line at Payless. #YOLO and whatnot.)

Also, every time I curl my hair I look like I’m going onstage in The Music Man. I have these Victorian little girl sausage ringlets. So then I brush it out and I look like a mess.

Someone please teach me all these things.
