Wet n Wild I ♥ Matte ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches


Wet n Wild I ♥ Matte ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette

Wet n Wild I ♥ Matte ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99, 8 x 0.0375, Walgreens) is a limited edition 8-pan eyeshadow palette with 4 neutral-tone and 4 multi-chromatic shadows--all with matte finishes. The palette is a cheap square plastic case with a clear lid to easily view the shades; there is no mirror. This particular palette is a Walgreens-exclusive palette and can be found in a large display attached to an aisle (along with the 6-pan baked palettes).

Wet n Wild shades are unnamed, so I'll just describe each shade by its color--

White is a neutral run-of-the-mill matte white. It has a soft, smooth, and thin texture with medium, build-able pigmentation. Something about this shade gives it a dull appearance.

Green is a muted cool medium green with a matte finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with good pigmentation.

Blue is a neutral slightly warm medium blue with a matte finish and slight sheen. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with great pigmentation.

Purple is a neutral-cool purple with superfine silver glitter and overall matte finish. It has a dry, stiff texture with medium pigmentation which makes it difficult to build up or blend.

Beige is a neutral-warm pale beige with a matte finish. It has a soft, smooth, thin texture with medium, build-able pigmentation.

Nude is a very warm, very matte light orangey-brown. It has a soft, smooth, and dense texture with great pigmentation. I find shades like this to be quite unflattering on me.

Brown is a warm red based dark brown with a matte finish. It has a soft, smooth, thin texture with medium pigmentation.

Black is a neutral run-of-the-mill black with a matte finish. It has a dry, stiff, thin texture and medium, build-able pigmentation.

I think this palette is a nice matte palette to have in your stash. I don't find the shades flattering or useful enough to warrant daily casual use. They all just seem like individual shades to use for different purposes and looks. Although I'm not crazy about the palette alone, I think it's a must-have for any makeup addict to own!
