Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation Will Come in NEW Deeper Shades

wet-n-wild-photo-focus-foundation-darker-shades

Back in September I was invited out to Brooklyn for a special early sneak peek of wet n wild’s 2017 launches. There are a ton of new products coming our way in January, but naturally I zeroed in on the foundations since they added new deeper shades to the lineup. Though the company that owns wet n wild also owns Black Radiance, we haven’t seen much crossover (okay, we haven’t seen ANY crossover) in complexion shades since—well, maybe EVER.

This NEW BECCA Multi-Tasking Perfecting Powder Though?!?!? #SwatchesInSeptember

becca-multi-tasking-perfecting-powder

Listen, I have my apprehensions about what appears to me as BECCA Cosmetics, long known as a brand that has SO MANY FOUNDATION shades—I’m talking RANGE FOR DAYS, dwindling down on their extensive range in exchange for “flexible” complexion products. Basically this means being able to still cater to a very wide range of skin tones—maybe even the same number as before, but with fewer products. I can’t be mad at a brand that can lessen its SKUs and still cater to darn near everybody. What I worry about though is perception because folks who don’t know the brand or who may not initially get what “flexible shades” means may feel excluded and not support the brand :/ I’m not so sure that the richly complected melanin beauty who might have worn BECCA’s deepest shade of Cacao might fit into the new flexible shade range. But on the same token, perhaps the brand wasn’t seeing a high enough demand for the shade. I don’t know. This is all my own speculation.

If you can find a good match in Black Radiance Color Perfect Liquid Make-Up, you’ll score a pretty good foundation for just $5. A while back when I was going on a swatch-binge and looking for products to include on the blog, I bought a bunch of Black Radiance and of course had to include the foundation. And these plus a bunch of other products that are patiently waiting to be swatched is why I started #SwatchesInSeptember.
