New palettes from Wet n Wild

Mr. Postman certainly knows how to make my day better, and today he left me no less than four packages! Awesomeness! When I ripped open the first one I found the three new eight pan palettes from Wet n Wild Color Icon™ in Comfort Zone, Blue Had Me At Hello and Petal Pusher (swatches at Sasquatch Swatch here, here and here) - and the second package contained even more Wet n Wild, namely three Color Icon™ Trios in Silent Treatment, I Got Good Jeans and I'm Feelin' Retro (swatches at Beauty Gala here, here and here), in addition to one of their matte lipsticks in Mauve Outta Here or Rose Flamboyant.

I was a bit baffled by the third package, as I couldn't remember ordering more than the first two, but when I opened it up I remembered that I won a contest by VampyVarnish on Twitter a few weeks ago. It was kinda funny, because I was playing World of Warcraft and decided to multitask out of the game to check something. I don't remember what distracted me. I then coincidentally noticed a question on Twitter from VampyVarnish where she asked how old she was when she first caught interest of makeup, and I posted the first number that popped into my head: 19. A few seconds later she posted another tweet, announcing me as the winner and today I received my prize: one M·A·C Marvel eyeshadow from Mickey Contractor! Imagine that, I actually won something.

The fourth and last padded envelope contained two silver bracelets from one of my cousins in the US. Such a nice gesture!

Mr. Postman certainly knows how to make a girl happy! Wink

  1. Receiving packages is fun. Now 4 packages is definitely a lot of fun Smile Good for you. *HUG* It’s nice to see you all happy.

    • Yes, it’s fun! Although I don’t like the connection between the arriving packages and the amount of money in my bank account. I wish I could expect mail without having to dish out money here and there! Wink Thank you hon, it means a lot to me. *HUG*

  2. Yay I love packages Smile Strangely I also love to see what other people recieve as well Smile
    I am waiting for a package too…. 3 (or was it four) eyeshadow palettes, a blush and two pairs of earrings Grin Cant wait Smile

    I wish I could get my hands on those Wet n Wild palettes soon, somehow it seems as if Finland gets everything last when it comes to cool stuff Wink


    • You know, I completely understand what you mean. If I don’t have any money to shop myself.. I watch haul videos on YouTube, or read about what others have shopped through their blogs, and I feel strangely satisfied for a while at least. I’m looking forward to read about your shopping too!

      I kinda like these Wet n Wild palettes, even though Petal Pusher seems to be the one that’s liked the least because of poor(er) pigmentation and slight chalkiness. I adore the colors though, so I’m fine with it anyway. I hope you’ll be able to get your hands on some one day. Do you ever use eBay?

  3. These palettes look really nice. I might be tempted to get them if they weren’t drugstore Razz I’m such a snob. And congrats on winning Marvel! Smile

    • You are such a snob. Indeed. Haha, I guess that makes two of us then? Wink I wouldn’t have looked twice at these palettes if it hadn’t been for the pigmentation. The only drugstore item I’m quite comfortable buying is my mascaras. I was almost lured into buying Diorshow on the boat, taxfree you know, but almost 300,- NOK for a mascara is such a joke! Nah.
