I have heard such great things about Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow so I picked up a few palettes when I was in the U.S..Wet n Wild describes these palettes as “Eight dynamic, perfectly color-coordinated shades with high pigment and pearl for ultra-impact color. Shades can be used together or individually to create an endless variety of looks.” I couldn’t agree more! The pigmentation is fantastic, the colours are beautiful and well-selected into palettes, and did I mention these 8-shadow palettes retail for only $4.99 USD? Wet n Wild is not available in Canada, but you can likely find their products online on sites like Amazon and eBay.The Color Icon shadows are available as singles, in trios, and in larger palettes. The palettes come in three shades: 736 Petal Pusher, 737 Blue Had Me At Hello, and 738 Comfort Zone. As you can see in the picture below, each shade is designated as either being for the browbone (and arguably the inner corner highlight too), eyelid, crease, or as a definer (outer part of the crease). The back of the palettes feature a diagram showing where each shadow should be applied, as well as an overview of which steps to follow to achieve different types of looks. There’s a nice range of dark and light shades as well as matte and shimmer finishes.
Comfort Zone is the first palette I gravitated towards first given it features neutral shades. Below are swatches on bare skin (no eyeshadow primer applied):
I also picked up Petal Pusher since the colours appealed to me for the warmer months, especially since I’m trying to be more adventurous with my eyeshadow looks. Below are swatches on bare skin (no eyeshadow primer applied):
I absolutely love these palettes so far and can’t wait to begin using them! Have you tried any of the Wet n’ Wild Colon Icon Eyeshadows before? Let me know what you think of the shades!
