obsessed: wet-n-wild color icon eyeshadow palettes + swatches
I recently had the opportunity to test out some of Wet n Wild’s Color Icon Palettes, and I am so happy that I have discovered these. If you haven’t tried Wet n Wild products for the past few years, PLEASE give them another try. Wet n Wild has some really amazing products for the price, and I am very impressed with the quality of their eyeshadows!
Overall, I’ve found Wet n Wild eyeshadows to be highly pigmented and easy to apply. They are VERY soft, which is great for application, but be careful with the palettes. I accidentally dropped a few on the ground, and they shattered. Thankfully the shadows are soft that I was able to press them back together easily, though.
On Cloud Nine Trio
Shimmery silvery blue, matte medium brown, and medium blue shimmer
I love this palette. I think it’s a really beautiful blue smokey eye look.
Knock on Wood Trio
Dusty rose shimmer, medium brown shimmer, burgandy shimmer
This palette would be an amazing fall eye look. The colors are great because depending on how heavy you apply the shadows, this look could be very natural or highly dramatic.
Sweet as Candy Trio
Light pinkish-nude shimmer, matte dark brown with glitter, light taupe shimmer
Beautiful neutral eye! Add more of the crease color to increase the drama. The eyelid color, a metallic taupe,
is so, so gorgeous.
Cool as a Cucumber Trio
Light yellowish seafoam green, dark purple, dark mossy green shimmer
I think all of the colors in this palette are really interesting. I’d definitely wear the pale green with the mossy green, but I’m not sure how the purple ties in to the look.
Silent Treatment Trio
Champagne shimmer, medium brown shimmer, light pinkish-taupe shimmer
This is my favorite palette by far. The brown crease color is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Smog, one of my all-time favorites, and the eyelid and brow bone colors are so beautiful. This is a great palette for everyday school or office looks.
Spoiled Brat Trio
Silver shimmer, matte black with glitter, hot pink
Spoiled Brat is such a fun palette. The silver is so pigmented and metallic- I’m in love. The crease color- a matte black with glitter- is a dupe for Urban Decay’s Oil Slick. I think this is a really fun night look for parties!
I Got Good Jeans Trio
Light silvery blue shimmer, dark blue shimmer, metallic yellow gold
Such a lovely palette. All of these colors are so pigmented and creamy, and I think that I’ll be sporting this look quite a bit this fall and winter.
I Dream of Greenie Trio
Palest green, bright green, neon green
I really love the middle green color- it’s so vibrant and a really fun accent color. The pale green and neon lime green are very unique, but unfortunately they don’t work with my skin tone.
Overall, I have become a huge fan of the Wet n Wild palettes. Their eyeshadows are highly pigmented and smooth, and the colors are gorgeous at an extremely reasonable price. I wish that the packaging was a bit sturdier to protect the super-soft shadows, but for only a few dollars a palette, I can’t complain. I’m currently searching for the Gilded Age palettes, so let me know where you’ve spotted them!
