LOTD: Wet n Wild The Gilded Age

I did my makeup today with the intentions of posting a LOTD. Well, I forgot to take pictures before I left home. (Grr!) I was so disappointed, but I decided to do a LOTD anyway from my phone. (Luckily you can do so much with cell phones these days!) So this is me, sitting in my car and here is my look. :)

I used the Wet n Wild trio in The Gilded Age for this look. It is a summer limited edition trio that you will find at your local drugstore in a display with a limited edition bronzer. It is $2.99 (the bronzer is the same price) and I have seen it at Walgreens, Fred Meyer and Bartell.

Here is what I used to create this look: 

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Cream Shadow Pencil in Pixie (as a base)
Wet n Wild The Gilded Age Trio 
   - Brow bone shade in inner corners, under inner lower lashline and to highlight
   - Eyelid shade allover lid and blended into crease a little
   - Crease shade in outer V, smudged under outer lower lashline
ELF Cream eyeliner in Black for all lining
NYX single eyeshadow in Black over cream liner on waterline
BUXOM Lash Mascara in Black Noir

Benefit Bella Bamba

Jordana Easyliner in Rock n' Rose
NYX round lipstick in Thalia
Maybelline lipgloss in First Light in in middle of lips

Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit in Ash Brown (lighter shade)

These colors are just gorgeous on and I definitely think this is a must have trio. Since it is a cell phone camera, I don't think the difference in colors is coming across very well. Click the link below to see my original swatches of The Gilded Age. These photos are much more true to how the colors show up. The brow bone shade is a light pinkish champagne color but it looks gold in this picture. Also the crease shade isn't showing up as dark, it is a rich deep bronze in person. All of the colors are well pigmented and have a great texture. They were easy to blend without losing too much pigmentation. As for length of wear, so far so good.
