Passion for Peach: Wet n' Wild Penny Single Eyeshadow Swatches and Review + tinyupdate

     I love peach, it brightens my complexion and gives me a girly glow, I feel so much more alive wearing it. I wear neutral eyes so much, like most girls, and I find that peach blushes and lipsticks look gorgeous paired with a brown eye. Anywho, this series will provide swatches and reviews (or quick reviews) on peach colored products I adore.

     Although peaches, pinks, and reds are a bit hard to pull off on the eyes, I couldn't do this series without a peach eye product. I find that with peach, pink and red eyeshadow you just need to know how much to use. In my eyes, more is better, because it becomes more evident that you are purposefully using a peach eyeshadow. So anywho, the Wet n' Wild Single Eyeshadow in Penny is readily available in your near by drugstore and I got mine for $1, but I think they go for about $2 usually.

     Wet n' Wild's Penny Eyeshadow is a golden red peach. It's a metallic shadow which is why in different angles and lighting you will see more gold, red, or peach. For this reason, if you only wear this shadow on your eyes, it will look like you have multiple shadows. The eyeshadow has a wonderful texture and pigmentation. It's the type that does not get so soft that you waste product and get fallout, and at the same time you have very nice pigmentation. I like to wear this shadow all over the lid, a little past my crease, and with a matte brown shadow in the outer corner and blended into the crease. I feel that I can't get a good 6-7 hours of wear before the color fades a bit, but that doesn't totally matter to me. Also, this kind of looks like MAC Rubenesque in powder form except much more red/peach, I'll do a comparison post later on with Rubenesque and this other cream shadow from a Revlon quad.

     OMG, guys! I reached the Picasa Web Album storage limit? I have the option of either purchasing 20GB of memory for $5 per year, but I wanted to know... if I forget to pay for the next year, will it delete all the photos I posted during the year? Are there any suggestions you guys have like a different blog format? Have you guys paid for more memory and what is your experience? I'm happy and kinda sad at the same time, since I have to pay now but this goes to show how in depth I try to my my blog and photos. I have I think two more posts can go up before I must pay. What do you guys think about me doing some videos? 

Thanks for reading! Please comment and follow my blog. Byebye. B)

  2. Ooo, I am contemplating to get the color Penny or Nutty :D The swatch is amazing! Thank you. Made my decision easier ^^, I love reds/peach too on my eyes :D It looks good with brown eyes I think :D Although have you tried Nutty?



  3. @Vale: Thank you! I'll check out your blog!

    @a!k0: Nutty is more a browny taupe. I can't say too much about it because I've only swatched it.
