New 2014 Wet n Wild Products {Spotted}

I went to the CVS in Iowa City last weekend and spotted a couple of the new Wet n Wild 2014 products, as well as some LE polishes that apparently never made it to my local stores. So far, I haven’t been able to find any new 2014 displays in Cedar Rapids, but with the new year underway, I expect that to change shortly.

I’m not sure when the official Wet n Wild vegan list under the FAQ will be updated (go here for my more accurate WnW vegan list). I have tried contacting WnW in the past and never received any responses, so I guess we’ll just have to wait. Until then, we won’t know if my assessments are correct.

Nail Polish

I totally forgot about the new nail polishes—including the matte top coat—until after I got home. I was very disappointed because I really want to try the matte coat. I was super disappointed with the e.l.f. Essential Matte polish and hoped the Wet n Wild version would be better.

There were a few different displays of LE polishes. I had to struggle to resist buying a few glitter polishes, though I did end up snagging a Fergie nail polish. Mountain High is not part of the new 2014 collection, but a leftover I found from the Holiday 2013 Heavy Metal collection. I never saw any displays for this set at any of my local drugstores. Which is too bad because I was really interested in several shades.

Mountain High is a milky white polish with hex and shreds of holographic glitters. I think it was $3.99 USD.

Color Icon 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette

I spotted a display next to the polishes containing the new 5 pan Color Icon eyeshadows. The palettes retail for $3.99 USD. All of the shadows I saw at CVS had a $1 off coupon attached to the front. I checked the ingredients and they look suitable for vegans. Interestingly, the ingredients listing for the palettes are different depending on which contain carmine. Maybe WNW got tired of people asking about it.

(I grabbed the last one in the display)

Of the five palettes available, the three that do not list carmine on the label are the following: The Naked Truth (the neutrals palette), Tunnel Vision (the grey palette), and, surprisingly, Floral Values (the purple palette).

I’m His Breezy (the blue palette) and Art in the Street (the vibrant multi-colored palette) contain carmine.

Ingredients for The Naked Truth:

Talc, Nylon-12, Boron Nitride, Ethyl Macadamiate, Dimethicone, Magnesium Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polybutene, Caprylyl Glycol, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Glycerin, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Tocopherol, [+/- (May contain): Iron Oxides/Cl 77491, Cl 77492, Cl 77499, Mica, Red 40 Lake/Cl 16035, Titanium Dioxide/ Cl 77891, Ultramarines/Cl 77007]

Please note that all of the new Color Icon 5-Pan Eyeshadows have two macadamia ingredients. In case you were wondering, my research concludes that caprylhydroxamic acid is a coconut derived preservative used in place of parabens.

Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Balm Stains

The new WNW product I was most liking forward to was the Balm Stains. I really like the e.l.f. Essential Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks (read my review here) and wanted to try similar products. I looked over the cosmetics department several times and finally spotted a display randomly stuck atop the Milani section, if I remember properly.

Unfortunately, the Balm Stains contain beeswax. Boo, I was so looking forward to trying them.

Other New 2014 Products

The Color Icon 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes and the Balm Stains were the only new products I spotted. The new polishes and single eyeshadows could have been there, but I forgot to look for them (my bad). The new MegaRocks line of glitter nail polishes may have been there as well, but honestly, there are so many displays of nail polish at any time that it’s difficult to keep track of them all.
