Radiance rich ingredient, cooling agent ingredient, 50% of moisture essence ingredient (Mint water, marine collagen, hyaluronic acid), porous air light powder.




CC creams are all the hype now in the Beauty Market following the trend of BB creams. While the latter promises coverage and skin care benefits, this one aims for colour correction without the heavy feel – more on the no makeup look.

 As for someone like me, whose only concern is the slight redness from broken capillaries, CC cream is the way to go.





Aqua Petit Jelly CC Foundation
One of the Best Sellers of Holika Holika (I know because I asked them,lol) is the Aqua Petit Jelly CC Foundation. 

Available in 2 shades. 01 Light Beige and 02 Natural Beige

01 Light Beige is the lighter shade of the two. This is my shade.







Comes in a pump up bottle, makes it easier and hygienic to use.  Actually reminds me of Etude House BB creams, they come in this kind of container. :)



It's watery consistency allows it to spread easily. The nice part is the cooling sensation it gives!


Main problem I have with most BB creams is the Pinkish tone. Since BB and CC are related, I got scared it will be pink. But alas, it was yellow! This will counteract the redness and brighten up the face!

(with pop up flash!)
It blends well on my skin. No whitish cast. Provides light coverage


For this look I used the following:

Translucent Loose Powder
Etude House Easy Brow Pencil
K-Palette 24HR Eyeliner Brown
Holika Holika Holy Berry Tint



staying power? 
lets just say that I test my foundation by how it will make me look after wearing for a whole day.  If I still look good, then its a keeper.  This one? A KEEPER. :)


Check the Aqua Petit Jelly CC Foundation out in Holika Holika SM Fairview Upper ground floor.

THE LIPSTICK SWATCHES


Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Coral-ine

Coral-ine on Lips
  
A perfect balance of red and orange.  Coral-ine is a bright color that can perk up the face.  If you're scared of wearing reds, this can be your starting point. It's wearable.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Red Velvet
Red Velvet on Lips

Its a blue based red good for warm complexion.  I still love mac Ruby Woo but if you want a tamed version. Then this is it.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Stoplight Red
Stoplight Red on Lips

I prefer this one over Red Velvet. This is a true red shade.  A closer shade to mac Ruby Woo as  mac Russian Red is a little darker. Pretty though.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Just Peach
Just Peachy on Lips
This I believe is my favorite out of the bunch. My top - only  choice if I need to wear peach.  Maybe because there is a hint of pink in this that it doesn't wash me out. This is a vibrant shade not dull.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Rose-Bud
Rose-bud on Lips
 For light skinned gals, this is pretty natural peach shade. And for medium, its a gorgeous nude peach.  I prefer bright nude shades so when the color goes even just a half shade darker than my lip color, I'm not going to use it anymore (bright dark pink shades are an exception and the occasional red lippie). But hey, I love using this shade on other people and its really a keeper- just not for my personal use. 


Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Pinkerbell
  

Pinkerbell on Lips

Pinkerbell is a wearable bright baby pink lipstick. Very close to mac Nicki Minaj. I don't think I was able to capture the color of this shade well so please watch my video (up^) to see its actual color on my lips. :)

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Don't Blink Pink 
Don't Blink Pink on Lips
Don't Blink Pink is a wearable bright berry pink lipstick.  Perfect for standing out without being too much. Not dark at all.  I don't think I was able to capture the color of this shade well so please watch my video (up^) to see its actual color on my lips. :)

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Mauve Outta Here
 
Mauve Outta Here on Lips
A medium pink with purple undertone. I never thought something with purple would look good on me. I tried before and failed. Never bothered after that.  Though its still out of my comfort zone, I will give this a chance as its a pretty shade. Not nude.

 Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Smokin' Hot Pink
 


Smokin' Hot Pink on Lips
For me, this shade is a medium (wee bit dark) raspberry pink shade.  Something very wearable for everyday, not as bright as Pinkerbell or Don't Blink Pink. Certainly a tamed pink-red for a more polished look.

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Spiked with Rum

Spiked with Rum on Lips

This one is a plummy brown shade. I find the color nice but its dark on me so I don't think I'm going to wear this at all. But again, those who can pull of medium pink-purply-brown shades, please pick this color up. Not flat and will certainly give color to the face. 

Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick Cherry Bomb




Cherry Bomb on Lips
So okay, I have bought similar colored lipsticks before but only found what I've been looking for a long time in this.  Too pretty pigmented bold dark plummy red. I can't get enough of this shade(please watch video to see how pretty). Wearable though I got a number of surprised reactions when I wore this (I always wear nudes and brights so its normal plus its Halloween so they thought I was trying to look vampy scary, lol).  Blank canvas with this on will already give a neat makeup look. Want to look instant sultry?..wear this shade!!!


Overall

Positive
  • Superb for the cheap price - totally more than worth it
  • Very pigmented - True color payoff!
  • A lot of shades to choose from
  • Vibrant
Negative
  • Packaging - Not a fan. Defective packaging. Some tubes get stuck upon twisting. This will nip the upper part of the lipstick. 1/4 of my wet n wild megalast already are damaged due to upper part clipping. Usable but not pretty anymore. :(
Ehhh
  • Needs application of lip balm beforehand for this not to look dry and flaky - I think this should be done when wearing any lippies

 So there you go. Priced at just $2.50 in the US and around 250php in the Philippines (shipping+tax thats why its more expensive). Cheap but worth it!

Thanks! ~xoxo
