Wet 'n Wild rocks it with Color-Icon palettes!

Ready for some drugstore goodies today?
If you haven't already, its time to head down to the Wet 'n Wild shelf and sample some of their new-er item. Yes, new-er because they've been out for a while, but they are still a new addition to the line.

Wet 'n Wild ColorIcon Trio eyeshadow


I've only recently been able to catch these guys since there is only one store that carrys them here and its almost always sold out.... >.>"




Wet 'n Wild ColorIcon 6-pan shadows

I was lucky to grab the last one of this VERY POPULAR shade; "Vanity".







Let's get into the review shall we?













Last words...



Wet 'n Wild ColorIcon Trio--swatch

The Good.....
  • Both palettes have beautiful pigmentation.
  • Show up well on the skin, even the matte shadows
  • Decent blendability.
  • Nice range of textures to experiment and combine.

The Bad.....
  • The texture isn't great, come off too powder and thick (the matte shades especially)
  • Doesn't last all day without a shadow primer.
  • The satin/metallic shades are a little too soft and easy to overblend, thus loosing intensity.

Over all I'd still call these guys a good pick! While they are not the most long-lasting, I think that factor depends on your skin and also what you are wearing it for. For a 4 hour trip, they will do just fine, anything more and you'd better add a primer to it. I do think Wet 'n Wild are really trying to revamp their line and that's a great thing for us product junkies!



Hope you found this helpful!
