Wet n Wild Color Icon 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Poster Child

Mary1 090

Wet N Wild eye shadow palettes are definitely a Drugstore favourite of mine and I know I’m not the only one who shares this view.  I mean, come on, for $4.99 ( US ) you get an eight shadow palette!  And these shadows pack a punch in terms of pigmentation and longevity.  A Google search will result in favorable reviews for this brand.  Unfortunately for us Canadian Beauties, it’s hard to find any new Wet N Wild in our drugstores or at least in my area.  Lucky for me, I live along the US/Canada border and cross border shop frequently……..okay, maybe to frequently, but don’t judge 🙂  So as a result, I get to grab new items before they become available in Canada……if they do become available at all.  I was very excited to find this palette during my last trip.

This palette features eight new shades, all labelled with where they suggest they should be used on your eye.  These are cooler shades and the palette includes both mattes and shimmers (just a slight shimmer…..no disco balls here).  Pretty colours for spring and summer with  bright and fun shades.  It’s great for trying bright looks on your eyes.  Having said this, the colours are somewhat sheerer than they look in the pan.  This palette gives you more of a sheer pop of colour rather than a BAM in your face colour.

Overall, I think it’s a great palette for those wanting a sheer pop of colour to wear on their lids.. I know I love those pink, peachy colours and that aqua colour is to die for !!

I’d highly recommend it for your collection……and for $4.99 you can’t go wrong.  And did I mention it’s part of the permanent line?!

What do you think?  Will you be getting it?  Let me know of you have it already and what you think of it.
