Wet N Wild Fergie Palette in Paris Runaway Swatches & Review

Hey everyone, I have a very exciting review on one of the new Fergie palettes in Paris Runaway. Now before I get started, this palette was a pain in the butt to find. Every time I go out of town, I have to look inside every single Walgreens to see if they carry any of the new Fergie products. I had gone out of town a few weeks back, and it was about 6 hours away from where I live, and I finally came a crossed this palette. I literally jumped for joy inside the store because I have been searching for this palette for what seems like forever. So I am very excited to finally share my thoughts and swatches of the palette. And I kind of went a little picture crazy, so I hope you do not mind!

Wet N Wild came out with two new 10 pan eyeshadow palettes in the beginning of January. They have this one which is in Paris Runaway, and also neutral palette. Paris Runaway is a great purple smokey palette. It comes with a variety of different shades to make a beautiful smokey look. Also, it comes with a great dual end brush that comes with a flat shader brush as well as a blending brush. 

Most of the shades in this palette have a lot of shimmer, as well as glitter in a few. So if you do not like shimmer, this palette would not be for you. All of the shades are extremely pigmented, and I didn't notice any fall out when applying the shades. 

One thing that I was a little disappointed about was that the palette comes with 4 black/grey shades. They are a little different in the pan and when swatched, but I feel like I could have done with just two of those shades, and maybe have a couple more lighter shades, or even more purples. 

Overall I am very impressed by the quality of the shadows.  The quality reminds me a lot of the 8 pan palettes by Wet N Wild, and if you have ever tried those, you know how amazing they are. I really recommend this palette if you can find it near you. I hopefully can come a crossed the neutral palette because I am going to need that one in my life as well. Let me know if you own this palette and if you enjoy it as much as I do!

Jord Sidney Series Wooden Watch Maple & Rose Gold

Hey everyone today I have a little review review for you guys on a new staple piece that I have been wearing like crazy. This is the Jord Sidney Wood Watch, and oh my goodness she is so beautiful. This watch was given to me to review, but that does not reflect my opinions on this watch. 

The Sidney Series Wood Watch has a nice maple wooden band and a rose gold face. I knew right away that I had to get this watch because of the rose gold. 

The watch does come in a beautiful wooden box where you can store your watch if you would like. I thought it was a wonderful added touch when it had arrived. 

The thing I love the most about the watch is the wood. I have never came a crossed a wooden watch before, and I think the concept is amazing. I think the wood really helps make the watch more wearable but it also makes it classy as well. Even though I did choose the rose gold, it most certainly goes with any color, and I think the colors are perfect all year round. 

Another thing that I love about ordering the watch is that you can have it sized for you. So instead of going in to get it adjusted to your correct length, you have the option to have it sized the way you want, without having to go in anywhere. 

This watch can be found at and it does retail for $179.00. I have my eye on a few other watches that I am hoping to get for my collection.
