When I received this Wet n Wild palette, Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Illuminator and a few Revlon Colorbursts in this month's Rite Aid Network, I knew there was about to be a makeup tutorial going down. The colors are SO fun for spring time! Lord knows New England needs a hint that it's spring time. I'm talkin' to you, random snow and sleet last Wednesday morning. You are so on my list.

The Headliners: Wet N Wild Floral Values Palette, Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights in Pink Light and Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Whimsical and Matte Balm in Lovesick.

Also Used: Foundation - L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Foundation in Light Ivory | Concealer - MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose | Blush - MAC Melba | Bronzer - NARS Laguna | Eyelid Primer - NYX Eye Pencil in Milk | Gel Liner - Maybelline (??) 

Eyes: I highly recommend using a white base with the Wet N Wild Floral Values Palette. On the lid, we started with the "Base" color. I popped the "Definer" shade into the crease and blended. I patted the "Eyelid" shade onto my lid. I decided to switch it up and used the "Crease" shade in my outter v. Lastly, I took the "Browbone" shade, wet it and applied it to the inner corner of my eyes. Cheeks: I used the Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights in Pink Light to highlight. I also used this down my nose and in my cupid's bow. Lips: First, I applied Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Lovesick and decided it needed a little more va-va-voom so I used Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Whimsical over it. I love the combo!

Unfortunately, most of the shades in the Wet N Wild Floral Values palette were incredibly sheer (not to mention chalky) so using white will give them a nice neutral base to pop off of. I also recommend patting, not spreading the shades on. The only redeeming shade was the "Base" shade which blended and applied perfectly. The Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights Illuminator was absolutely amazing! I love the subtle highlight it gave! Lastly, you all know this by now but I'm coo-coo over these Revlon Colorburst balms so naturally, I loved everything about them!

Would you rock pink/purple eyes? How much effort do you put into a product before you give up on it?
