Wet n Wild Fergie Holiday 2015 display at Walgreens
It's that time of year again! The annual Wet n Wild Fergie Holiday display is now popping up at select Walgreens locations, and I'm so happy I finally spotted it in my area because that means I have lots of pics to share with you today!
This year's display is different from the 2014 and 2013 WnW Fergie holiday displays. It's a three-sided freestanding floor display (you can see the 2014 and 2013 displays here and here). There are some repeats this year, but there are also some new sets (or sets we've seen in the past, but with new products added).
This collection contains both Walgreens-exclusive sets and non-Walgreens-exclusive sets (noted below).
Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Eye Collection
(retail: $10; five full-size products)
This set includes the permanent Fergie Milano 10-pan palette, as well as two full-size Fergie eyeliners (black and brown), an eyeshadow brush, and a full-size Fergie Turn Up the Volume Full Blast Mascara. For $10, this is a fantastic value considering that the 10-pan palette alone retails for $7.99.
Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Lip Bestsellers Collection
(retail: $10; six full-size products)
This set includes six full-size lip colors, all from the permanent line (two Fergie Creme Lipsticks, two Fergie Vicious Varnish High Shine Lip Stains, and two Fergie Velvet Matte Lip Pencils). Just the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils alone are $3.79 each so, again, an excellent value.
PS: I LOVE those Vicious Varnishes (you can see my full review here).
Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Brush Set
(retail: $10; five full-size products)
This is basically the same brush set we've seen in past Fergie holiday collections--only the outer packaging is different this year.
Best of Wet n Wild Mascara Collection
(retail: $5; five mini mascaras)
This year's mini mascara set is the same as previous years, except this year they added the new-for-2015 Max Volume mascara to the set.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Glitter Palette
As with previous years, this is a cream eyeshadow palette (NOT powder). I know these cream shadow palettes are not a favorite with Nouveau Cheap readers, so perhaps you'll be happy to know that there's only one this year (last year there were two).
Wet n Wild Mega Slicks Balm Stain Set
(retail: $5; three full-size pencils)
Another nice value, considering that the Balm Stains retail for $2.99 individually. I believe these are all permanent shades, but I can't 100% confirm that (I ran out of time when I was at Walgreens and didn't get to check).
Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage On the Edge Long-Wearing Mini Eye Pencil Set
(retail: $5; four mini pencils and one sharpener)
No new shades here--all repromotes from the permanent line.
Wet n Wild Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner Collection
(retail: $5; four full-size liners)
Nice deal here, since these liners retail for $2.99 individually. I believe all but the bronze shade are from the permanent line. Wet n Wild seems to roll out that bronze shade every year for the holidays (you can see swatches of it from 2008 here).
Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Collection
(retail: $5; two full-size products plus 2 brow stencils)
This set includes the new-for-2015 Coloricon Brow Shaper (clear pencil), which retails for $1.99 individually. The Brow Kit retails for $3.99 individually.
Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Mini Nail Color Set
(retail: $5; four mini nail polishes)
These are all shades from the permanent line, and I believe these are the same shades we've seen in previous holiday collections.
Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Eye Shadow Kit
(retail: $5; full-size eyeshadow palette and mini primer)
I THINK the primer is a mini (again, I was in a hurry and didn't really pay attention when I was snapping these pics but, now that I look at this photo, that tube looks smaller than the full-size tube, right?). Anyway, the palette in this set is the new-for-2015 Camouflage Couture palette (you can see a better photo of it here). Since that palette retails for $4.99 by itself, it's like you're getting the primer free. And you know how I feel about that primer (it's one of my holy grails, in case you're new to this blog).
Wet n Wid Mega Last Nail Color Set
(retail: $10; eight full-size polishes)
On the third shelf of this display, we have this polish set. As we all know, the Mega Lasts retail for $1.99 each, so this a great value at $10 for eight full-size bottles. There's a mixture here, in terms of colors. Some of these shades are from the permanent line, while others are shades that Wet n Wild tends to bring out only for holiday collections. None of the shades look brand new to me, but there are some pretty colors here that you can't get year-around.
Wet n Wid Fergie Centerstage Beauty University Palette
And finally, we have the Fergie Beauty University Palette, which I already went over at length HERE (this is the same palette as last year). If you're interested in this, try to wait until Black Friday since this usually goes on sale for 50% off at that time.
What do you think of this year's WnW Fergie holiday offerings? Any must-haves here? Have you already spotted this display at your local Walgreens? I'd love to hear from you!
