Wet n Wild Lipsticks

Ranters I have to convey my latest Rant on how GREAT these lipsticks are! They have been compared on YouTube to Mac Lipsticks plus they are Cruelty Free. Save the Bunnies Peeps. The cost is inexpensive $1.99 and at times 50% off at any local drugstore. Sweet!

My fellow blogger BMJ2K was very passionate not too long ago about Wet n Wild. So there will be other episodes or blogs dedicated to this brand as they have launched new items recently and were brought to THIS RANTER’S attention by Mr. BMJ2K ! Just kidding but he does like giving me the push I need to rant to my hearts content LOLS.

This brand takes it upon itself to put itself out there regarding how it represents itself and its image to customers. The ingredients are mentioned in the FAQ’a which is easily accessible. They also have a vegan list in the FAQ’s which makes them an even more valuable brand which great prices and values.

Without further ado lets begin………Here are the swatches of all the nice MegaLast lip colors that I currently own:

Lipstick Swatches

  1. 24 Carrot Gold: Its a Great summer color that is always in my purse.
  2. Pink Suga: Awesome nude shade if your looking for one. Goes with mostly all skin tones
  3. Purty Persimmon: I heard is a great dupe for some Mac shades. I have no idea which shades but I bought it anyway. You can probably do a search on YouTube for the exact shade
  4. Pinkerbell: Love the name! What a fairy tale?! Where the hell is my prince charming people!
  5. Bare it All: Oh ya going Nude is the way to go
  6. Just Peachy: is perfect lip heaven. It goes great with Lip gloss
  7. Dollhouse Pink: is NEON pink. Excellent shade for the summer.
  8. Raven Raisin is such a unique  color. Great for Halloween or if your into Wicca. Beautiful and bold for a daring look.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Beautiful lip colors all in their own right. I also want to talk about their packaging. Packaging is very cheap with the top coming off damaging my lipstick. It was upsetting since it caused the lipstick to break from the bottom like it was on a roller coaster ride. Also the lipstick does get all over the top cover like no tomorrow.  So cheap packaging is given but then again you do get what you pay for which is $1.99 BUT Wet n Wild’s Silk Finish Lipsticks is only $0.99 and the packaging is way better. So I think they can actually make their MegaLast Lipsticks packaging more durable. I hope Wet n Wild will consider my suggestion.                                                                           Last and not least I would like to say I am not being sponsored to rant my innermost thought.  Let me know what colors you have. How you feel about Wet n wild or just say Hi as a ranter!

September Birchbox 2015 (Ingredients information)

FTC Disclosure: This product was paid for by yours truly. I am currently subscribed to Birchbox and received this on a monthly basis.

Birchbox is a subscription box that retails for $10 a month for you to try new products. Most of the products are high end. They also have a points program where you end up receiving five dollars back for reviewing your samples to redeem for full sized products. For more information you can check it out through my invite link here:https://www.birchbox.com/invite/gz8zl or http://www.birchbox.com. Whichever makes you more comfortable my fellow ranters.

I received my September Birchbox very early. I was really surprised and excited. The box was really nice. The theme was fashioned for Birchbox’s birthday.

A little backstory; I’ve been going crazy with the ingredients in the beauty products that I utilize. I am not vegan by any means but I am concerned about having animal by products derived especially from beef or pork. Pork especially as I don’t even consume that on a daily basis in my diet. This is due to the reason that I am Muslim and practice Halal. So in my research I came to find out a lot of information which I plan to share with my peeps :). I hope this helps.

  1. Anastasia Beverly Hills: Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil - taupeThe full size retails for $23 but my sample size was 0.013 oz. I have to say that the sample should have included a spooley considering that it is a significant part of the product. I researched the ingredients and I haven’t found ingredients containing animal byproducts.
  2. 100% Pure: I like this product tremendously so far for the reason that its vegan. The scent is like vanilla which I am not a fan of but I am hoping that with the passage of time the coffee ingredients will work. I mention in my video why. Full Price Retails at $25.
  3. Raw Spirit Fragrance: I am not a fan of this sample. It is so masculine and mad me sneeze like no tomorrow. I also noticed that one of the ingredients is just Alcohol. I tend to avoid alcohol in my products. It is sort of difficult but I try as best as I can. Retail price is from $40-$90, yikes!
  4. Salon Gioje: Right off the bat I noticed that there was Keratin in the Protein mask. I was concerned due to religious concerns since  I can’t utilize products derived from pork. Thankfully the company had mentioned where the ingredient was derived from on their website. I am happy that its from sheep and also happy with the company’s transparent approach regarding their ingredients. The full product retails for $48.
  5. trestique: I received a concealer in Bisque. I believe that it would be great for under-eye concealing. I also did reach out to the company to make sure the Glycerin in the product wasn’t derived from either beef and pork. The company is fairly new and I come to find that their direct phone number didn’t work. If you email the company it does take them a couple of days for them to get back to you. Full Retail value of this products is $26.

Overall I really liked the box this month and I am excited to try. If you have a subscription box or birchbox let me know in the rant below.
