Tight Wallet Tuesday: Wet & Wild “Fergie” On Edge Creme Eyeliner

Out of all the topics I post on my blog Tight Wallet Tuesday is my absolute favorite topic! It’s been a little while since I’ve brought you guys one of these! But I’m truly happy that this is one of my comeback post!

This product makes you say MAC fluidline who?! No lies the consistency, the color pay off , the price, the staying power! This doesn’t even give Mac a run for their money it RAN Mac.

This mystery product is Wet and Wild’s “Fergie” creme liner “on the edge”. It comes in black – little black dress and a brown cocoa Riche!

So I figured I would buy the brown color because my dip down fluidline from MAC was completely dried out. I was $5 away from free shipping on drugstore.com and this was perfect $4.99!

So the jar looks pretty similar to the fluidline packaging shown above! It’s a nice rich brown and it glides on like you would not believe!

I promise you this product is long lasting, waterproof, smudge proof and it has a crease resistant finish so you can use it as a base for a bold smokey eye!

And to add to the amazingness it’s not tested on animals!

It’s a 0.10 oz but a little goes an extremely long way! And actually MAC fluidline is the exact same size
At $16! You can buy almost 4 of these for the price of one!

This product will leave you saying MAC fluidline who? $16 for what?

Go out and get it! You’ll love me for it!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Wet & Wild Megalast

ImageWatch out now MAC pro long wear lipsticks! Wet and Wild has just launched an amazing forever staying lipstick that seriously does not move! This is stuck to me like glue and I am loving it!

First of all this is a Tight Wallet tuesday because it is only $2.99! Yes I said $2.99! And if you go to CVS sometime this week you can catch the sale buy one get one 50% off ! So you get two colors for the price of $5 bucks! Sure does beat the MAC Prolong wear lipstick price of $23.00 a piece! You can pretty much buy the whole collection from wet & wild and it will still be less than one MAC prolong wear. The only con is there currently not a large selection of colors, maybe like 6 in total.

So I bought 2 lip colors these stood out to me the most, I wanted to give them a try before I went all out.

The pink is Back to the Fuchsia

The red is Red My Mind

These colors are super intense and dry matte. Here is a photo of me wearing “Red my Mind”

Such a really pretty true red! And the staying power I promise you  is unbelievable. I even tested it out on a napkin after letting it set! No lie, no transfer!

DAANG! That’s pretty amazing for $2.99! As always a long wear can be drying, just apply a chapstick or gloss on top when it feels a tad bit dry.

Wet & Wild if you come across this post, as a makeup artist and a product junkie consumer, This is Everything, you guys did good! Just launch more colors and I will be a happy camper!!

To my fellow Glam Gluttonies go to CVS now and treat yourself!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: H&M Beyonce Beachwear Line

ImageBeyonce’s collaboration with H&M launched early this month and not only is it super cute, but it’s super inexpensive! The cute little dress and crop top won’t cost you more than $20 but the biggest shock to be was the price of the Bikini tops and bottoms! Seriously it’s a steal.

 

We all know that we can easily spend $60 on a pretty cute bathing suit! But Beyonce’s line you spend $10! Yes $10 for the whole thing top and bottom! This is why it is my topic for tight wallet tuesday. 

Summer is right around the corner there is lots of time for the pool, sunbathing and vacation. And we all want to have multiple bathing suits that are super adorable but don’t break the pockets. H&M and BEYONCE did that! 

ImageI got 2 bathing suits, 4 pieces for $20! The coral color i’m absolutely in love with! It has matching bottoms, but i don’t like to match that often. Matching is overrated. But back to costs 20$ That is ridiculously hard to come by. Even at Target we leave there with one bathing suit @ $30.00! Each piece is $4.95 they are very comfortable, chic and well cheap!

Get out to your local H&M and get a few before they are all gone!

That’s your tight wallet tuesday tip for the week.

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Bowler Hat Find!

Tight wallet Tuesday is back! And i think this is the best deal I have ever come across, and probably saved the most money on. I never shop at Kohl’s but I was on a hunt for a cute bowler hat! I fell in love with some at goorin bros, but I couldn’t gather myself to pay $75 and up for a hat right now. So i decided to go to my favorite friend google.com and type in bowler hat. One of the first links said Kohl’s so I said okay lets check this out! So I found this cute little black bowler pictured below! Way cute right? Well I will be taking out the feather because it is a little too pimp-ish for me. But never the less a cute bowler. The best part is that this was on sale. Original price was $42.00 knocked down to $8.40 okay so that is already more than 50% off it’s like almost free. And then on top of that kohls had an online promotion of 20% off with the promotion code: BLOOM- which I got off of retailmenot.com! which made it like $6! And to top it off I used EBATES and got money back! Okay so it wasn’t that much money back from ebates because it was only like 3% but still. This $42 hat was practically free! Right isnt that an awesome deal if you have a tight wallet!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids

ImageWhile reading my Glamour magazine on the plane last weekend I came across this ad and was like “YES! I need this orangey coraly color and whatever other color it comes in!  Especially if the pigment is just like that!” I fell in love with an orange very similar to this in the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #12- Coral Incandescent described as a bright cajun coral. But, you know sometimes you can’t just dish out $34 on a lipstick! And yes the YSL lipsticks are worth every penny, but right now I probably should not be spending $34 on one lipstick! Especially because these new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids run about $7-$8 per lipstick and that means you can get 5 for the price of one! And yes because I really wanted to try these I had my boyfriend take me to CVS right after we got off the plane. hahaha.

Immediately I found them and tried not to be excessive and limit myself to 3, but that never works. I left with 5!  I think there are eight in total so I am only missing 3. I got #860-pink pop, #870-shocking coral, #880-electric orange, #895-on fire red, and #905- brazen berry! Image

ImageFirst and foremost the bright orange translucent packaging is so eye catching you immediately take a double take! And then you see the colored stickers on the bottom, and you already think to yourself these are going to be gorge! Since I am all about sanitation and cleanliness I never swatch the colors on my hand at the store, because you would hate for someone to do that to your lipstick right? So I take a chance and buy them all! LOL. That’s just the gluttonous me talking.

So when I finally got home and had the chance to try them I was convinced that I needed the last three that I did not buy. The pigment on these lipsticks are wonderful even on a dark skin tone. They are extremely hydrating and creamy on the lips. And the best part of all they have longevity so you will not have to reapply that frequently.

Below are swatches of all 5 lipsticks that I purchased.

Top Left: #860- Pink Pop

Bottom Left: #870 Shocking Coral

Top Right: #880- Electric Orange

Middle Right: #895- On fire Red

Bottom Right: #905-Brazen Berry

Image

If you have been dying to get some bright lipsticks and the $15-34 dollar lipstick is out of your price range, head to CVS or Walmart or target and find these! Sometimes our wallets are a little tighter than we want it to be! But we absolutely have to have a new lipstick. I promise these will make your day, and you’ll forget about that MAC lipstick you wanted for now and save $7 doing it!
