Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Collection Box - Review & Swatches

Hi Beauties!

Wet n Wild introduces a new summer collection, Flights of Fancy.  It is a limited edition collection that is dedicated to hummingbirds.  The collection features bold hues and vibrant pigments inspired by the Allen's and Costa hummingbirds and their habitat.  The collection features new eyeshadow quads, lip glosses, blushes, liners and more.  I received the Limited Edition Collection Box which is available for purchase.  By purchasing this collection, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Los Angeles Audubon Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect birds and their habitats.  Today I will be sharing the contents of the collection box as well as swatches.

There are three quads in this collection that feature a range of purples, blues and greens.  The quads include shades for the transition, brow bone, crease and lid to complete an entire eye look.  The palettes are the perfect shades for summer.  Stop Ruffling My Feathers is the lighter palette which can be used for creating more soft daytime looks.  The other two palettes, Flock Party and Hasta La Costa Baby, can be used for more bold looks.  I'm very drawn to the shades in these two palettes.  The mattes are fairly pigmented and they apply very smoothly.  The shimmers apply better with a wet brush or fingertips.  However, the shimmer fades rather quickly.

The star of the Flights of Fancy Collection, in my opinion, is the Baked Blushes.  There are three different shades, each meant to give a tropical glow.   The powders are embossed with a beautiful hummingbird in the center.  It almost makes me not want to use it.  The blushes contain micro-fine pearls to achieve a nice glow to the cheeks.  All three are equally gorgeous and they blend easily into the skin.  Once blended they give a sheer glow.  Don't Flutter Yourself is a soft pink shade that looks light on my skin tone.  Dare to Soar is a bolder pink shade that looks better on my complexion.  Hummingbird Hype is a warm peach shade that adds a hint of colour to the cheeks.

Highly pigmented glosses perfect to give a vibrant summer pout.  There are five shades in this collection and I have four to share with you.  The lid of the tube is illustrated with a tropical design that includes hummingbirds.  The applicator has a flat rounded tip and picks up the right amount of product.  The glosses have a rich formula that features vitamin E to improve lip texture and murumuru seed butter to moisturize and nourish the lips.  The formula is very comfortable to wear and it's not sticky.  Fly Gal is a pink shade that is a little too light for me and has a sheer finish.  Featherless is a light peach with a sheer finish.  Pout of Paradise is a nice orange shade that is pigmented with an opaque finish.  Shut the Pluck Up is a pretty plum shade that also has an opaque finish.

MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner - $3.99

There are two eyeliners included in this box.  Gilded Wings is a metallic gold which is stunning and Winged n' Wild is a matte green shade that I don't see myself wearing that much.  The brush is very thin, which I like, to create a precise wing.

The box also includes a Photo Focus Primer Water Spray which can be used to prep, set and refresh makeup throughout the day.  I like how it bottle sprays the product evenly.  It does have a scent that I'm not too keen on.  Lastly, is the Perfect Pout which is a lip scrub in Pecker Up.  It contains "Murumuru Seed Butter which has excellent moisturizing and nourishing properties and Tucuma Seed Butter that acts as an emollient, lubricant and moisturizing agent".  It has an artificial watermelon smell but it doesn't bother me.  The sugar really helps to buff away dead skin.
