This week, Walgreens has a 50% off deal on all Wet 'n' Wild products. I took the opportunity to get me the Vanity palette from their ColorIcons collection. After hearing so many nice things about it in the blogsphere, I guess the 50% off just gave me an extra push to obtain this palette. I have to say, the Vanity palette doesn't disappoint: it is pigmented and a lot smoother than the old WnW Ultimate Expressions I had before.
I did a quick neutral look and this is the result:
Note: the Neutrogena Just Whispers is a dupe of MAC Blankety. It is also 50% off at Walgreens. At $5, this lipstick is a good deal. It feels pretty much like a MAC lipstick except it doesn't have the sweet smell.
Wanna know how I did this look? Jump!

Face and Lips
I mixed my mineral foundation with sunscreen to create a tinted foundation/moisturizer and applied it on my face. Then, I used the long handled kabuki (LHK) to apply The Ultimate Powder to set my foundation and cut the shine. Using the same brush, I applied Shiseido P Brown 76 blush on my cheeks.

Did you notice something different with my hair? Yeah, I went to get a haircut last Thursday. It's a Victoria Beckham-ish pob. Since my hair is longer than hers, it doesn't look exactly like the Posh bob. The guy who cut my hair did a good job with it and I love how it moves.
So, what do you think about this week's FOTD? Have you tried the Vanity palette yet?
