Wet N Wild has launched two new collections for Fall 2014, the All Access Beauty Fall 2014 Collection, which features four new Limited Edition Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes, and the Megalast Matte Lipsticks and Nail Colors Collection, which consists of four new Limited Edition Matte Lipsticks, and six nail polishes. Today I am reviewing the Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes, that I was lucky enough to purchase from Kmart during a trip to NY.
The Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes feature five shades of eyeshadows that have the suggested placement imprinted on each shadow. There is also the standard eye diagram on the back of the palette for placement suggestion as well. Take these as recommendations only, as sometimes the suggestions are a little questionable!?
Smoke and Melrose
All of these shades swatched beautifully, no primer was used. The browbone color is matte, the definer and crease were shimmers with a hint of sparkle. The base and eyelid were a satin finish. Gorgeous colors and my favourite palette. You could almost compare this to the Naked 3 palette……will have to check that out.
Angels in Aubergine
The browbone and eyelid are matte but the browbone has poor pigmentation. The base and crease are shimmers with a hint of sparkle. The definer is the clear hit from this palette….it’s a gorgeous wine satin, with no sparkle. There was no primer used.
High Wasted Jeans
The browbone is a matte, the base is a frost, the definer, eyelid and crease feel very dry and chalky with slight sparkle. I do not like this palette. I find the shadows feel very dry & chalky. The only shade that is worth it here is the base colour. Once again, no primer used.
Melrose at Night
The browbone is a matte, the base & eyelid are satins, the definer is a dry formula with slight sparkle and the crease is a shimmer with sparkle. I really love the browbone, base and eyelid colours! The other two aren’t anything special and I don’t care for their specific formula. No primer used.
Overall there are hits and misses in these palettes. The obvious favourite is Smoke and Mirrors. I’m not at all impressed with High Wasted Jeans, and can’t honestly recommend it. Although I didn’t like all of the shadows in Angels in Auberdine I would only recommend it if you want that wine shade. Melrose at Night is very nice….I love three out of the five shades, so can honestly recommend it. What do you think? Will you be picking any up?
Thanks for reading, until next time….
