Wet 'n' Wild South Africa - Haul & Wishlist!

Hi there

In the last month I have been hearing that Wet n Wild Cosmetics is coming to South Africa.  I thought "I will believe it when I see it".   For months, there had been a sign where the "Accesorize Cosmetics" had been discontinued showing "Exciting New Brand Coming Soon"

I was in Gateway mall one of the days this week, and during my last 10 minutes, to kill time while waiting for the other ladies, I wondered into Clicks to hang out at the makeup counters.
While browsing I saw a mascara that looked unfamiliar to me.  When I looked up to see what the brand was, I nearly started jumping up and down with joy.  I had to contain myself or else security might has escorted me out if I hadn't behaved myself.  Yes, it was Wet n Wild!! I phoned my bff immediately.

By that time I only had 5 minutes left before I had to drive back to work.  Although I was rushed for time I did notice that most of the 8 pan palettes where sold out as where a lot of the other cosmetics on the stand.  I hope it is replenished soon.  I grabbed two things and ran to the till to pay.

Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Single sahdow in Brulee

I have always heard how Brulee is the BEST hightlight shade on your browbone.  I was not leaving without this, no matter how rushed I was.

Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon in Petal Pusher

I love purples although I have plenty purple shadows.  The one I really wanted "Comport Zone" was sold out.  I was in a rush, I should have grabbed the 3 pan palettes that I have been coveting.

My Wish list:
Later that evening, I consulted the girls on the Makeup Board on Makeup alley and I asked them to suggest their best loved Wet 'n' Wild mascara.  So I will definitely go back for a mascara.
Wet N Wild Mega Length Mascara

Wet 'n' Wild single eyeshadow in "Nutty" is supposed to be a dupe for Mac's 'Satin Taupe'.  I also like "Kitten" and "Penny".

Left to Right: Knock on Wood, Walking on Eggshels, Silent Treatment, Sweet as Candy

WET N WILD Color Icon Blusher - Pearlescent Pink

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipcolor

In particular, the lippy that caught my eye was "Just Peachy".  Think Pink, Mauve Outta Here and Cherry Bomb shades would be next.

That is just a few items that I am coveting.  There are lots more products like Bronzers, Liners, Nail Polishes, Coverall Foundation etc.  I must say that the Coverall Powder also looked damned good for my yellow toned skin.  But my wishlist may be filled by Xmas - we'll see!



  1. I got some wet 'n wild stuff on the weekend here in JHB. I got Walking on Eggshells and Comfort Zone. Petal Pusher was sold out here. Both Walking on Eggshells and Comfortzone are amazing! The duochrome definer shade in Comfort Zone is just incredible! Get ASAP!

      I did end up going back and getting more stuff on my wishlist. The shadows are soo pigmented. I want more lipsticks as well. The display is almost bare so hopefully they will re-stock it soon.
