Clinique and Wet n Wild Mini Haul with Swatches and Comparisons

Hi everyone!

 A couple of days ago I went to Sephora and Duane Reade and bought a few things:

Wet n Wild Fast Dry Nail Color- FuschiaRama and Buffy the Violet Slayer; Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes-Deep Cobalt; Wet n Wild singles- Nutty, Brule, Penny

MAC Blooz, Clinique Deep Cobalt; MAC Blooz, Clinique Deep Cobalt

As you can see, Blooz is darker than Deep Cobalt. I already own Clinique Cream Shapers in Starry Plum and Chocolate Lustre, and I love them. I can’t wait to try out Deep Cobalt!

MAC Expensive Pink, WnW Penny, WnW Brule, WnW Nutty

I do not own MAC Satin Taupe and Brule, so I went to the MAC store and swatched them there, alongside Nutty and WnW Brule. I did not have my camera, so I did not post a photo of these swatches. When compared to Nutty, Satin Taupe is warmer, less frosty, and less pigmented. Both Brules are dupes of each other, but WnW’s version is more pigmented.

MAC Expensive Pink is very close to WnW Penny, but EP contains more gold shimmer and is less pigmented.

WnW Fast Dry Nail Color- FuschiaRama.

I love the color of FuschiaRama, but I had application issues with the polish. It went on unevenly and needed three coats to get the bottle shade. The fast dry claim is questionable, since my nails smeared 10 minutes after application. I did not post a photo of Buffy the Violet Slayer, because the color showed up very blue on camera, and I felt that there was no point in posting the photo, since it did not even vaguely resemble the true color.  If you look at the product photo above, you’ll see that BtVS is a true purple. It is similar to OPI Purple with a Purpose, only without any blue tones. It is a very true purple that will look marvelous on many skin tones. I am a huge “Buffy” fan, and a purple lover, so of course this purchase was a no-brainer for me. 🙂 

Did any of you buy any of these products? What do you think of them? Did you have the same app issues with the WnW polishes as I did?
