Wet 'n' Wild Mini Haul (UK)

So as you know 2 weekends ago I was back home in Gods own country (Ireland) and of course I couldn't miss an opportunity to buy makeup.
The lovely Gillian from Purple Gillian (blog and youtube) doesn't live far from where I am from and kindly told me that the local pharmacy in my town stocks the (I think) American brand Wet 'n' Wild- a brand I have never seen in any other shops I have frequented in the UK.

Enough Rambling- here is what I got

I firstly got this Color Icon Eyebrow/liner pencil in Mink Brown

I didn't have any brown eyeliners in my collection and this is a nice creamy cool-toned brown that I thought would look nice with my Naked 2 palette.

Next up was this lipstick in Smokin' Hot Pink

And This one is Sugar Plum Fairy

These are both matte shades. They are lovely and creamy, super pigmented and opaque and apply nicely to the lips. I've only tried them on so I can't comment on the wear or longevity but if you'd like me to road test/review let me know in the comments. 
Smokin' hot pink is a deepish rose pink, I thought it looked very sophisticated and different to all I had in my collection. Sugar plum Fairy is, as you can tell, a lovely deep berry-plum colour which will be gorgeous in the autumn (or whenever as I never stick to seasons)

The last thing I got was this Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in Walking on Eggshells

This was what I wanted to get when I first heard that the Pharmacy carried Wet 'n' Wild. This eyeshadow trio is perfect for an easy everyday look. The swatches above are one swipe, the pigmentation is good and the shadows are creamy, shimmery and lovely. It also comes with the usual sponge applicator but also a wee brush which might be good in a pinch.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what I got, the lot only cost me just over £10, if you ever get a chance, pick some of the stuff up as it is a lovely drugstore brand! Thanks for reading. I'd love to hear if you have anything from WnW or what you are lusting after!
