Wet n Wild in Ireland - A Closer Look at What's What

If you go down to your Dunnes today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go down to your Dunnes today
Your purse better go in disguise!

For every girl that ever there was
Will gather there for certain because,
today's the day that
Wet n Wild launch their maaaaake - up!

You'll have heard rumblings over the past couple of days, then seen Instagrams trickle through and even ALL CAPS TWEETS exclaiming that budget beauty giant Wet n Wild have landed on our shores and arrived with little or no fanfare into local Dunnes Stores' everywhere. 

Since learning of their arrival this week I quickly learned that there is to be a national launch at the hands of one of our favourite PR companies (WHO WILL ALSO BE BRINGING NYX - ARRGGHH). I'll be popping along to the launch so will be sure to take lots of behind the scenes snaps but for now, snaps of the products as they stand will whet your appetite just enough. 


Mega Rocks: €3.99, Megalast: €2.99 & FastDry: €2.99
As of now I've only sampled the Megalast in I Need a Refresh-Mint and you can see the results of that here on my Instagram feed. The pro brush is short, wide and applies the formulation beautifully. I'll 100% have more in-depth reviews coming up.
Mascaras (various) €5.49, Color Icon Palettes €5.49, Color Icon Shadow Collections €6.49, Color Icon Eyeshadow Trios €4.49, Eyeshadow Singles & Glitter Singles €1.99, Lip Liner €1.99, Brow Liner €1.99 & Idol Eyes Creme Shadow €2.99
Again I have swatched the majority of these in store and been very impressed overall. You can see up close swatches of the Comfort Zone palette here but I will continue to add good quality swatches as & when I have them. 

Mega Slick Balm Stains (Crayons) €3.99, Megalast Lip Color €2.99, Lip Gel €2.99, Lip Balm €4.49, Lip Gloss €2.99, Liquid Lip Color €4.69 & Silk Finish Lipstick €1.99
H20 Proof Liquid Eyeliner €3.99, Mega Eyes Defining Marker €4.49, Megaliner Liquid Liner €2.99, Cover All Concealer Palettes €4.49, Mega Glo Illuminators €4.49, Color Icon Blushers €4.49, Brow Kit €3.99, Cover All Cream Foundation €4.49, Liquid Concealer Wand €3.49, Cover Stick €2.99, Cover All Pressed Powders €3.99 & Bronzers €4.99
Pheweee! As I say, once I have decent swatches available I'll have them on my Instagram (you really should follow that, there's bonus kitteh & Rottie pics) but also here in more detailed posts. 

Just thought I'd give you a quick glance at what everyone else is seeing on stands as of this week and a better idea of price points. Overall, I'm very, very impressed - as with every brand there are standouts and there are some you can skip over happily - I'll be letting you know which is which ASAP. 

First impressions?
