Hello everyone! I am so excited to write today because I have been waiting for Wet N Wild to come out with bigger, better eyeshadow palettes! They are such a great brand that offers affordable, cruelty free makeup. Many of Wet N Wild’s products have been in my monthly or yearly favorites. So, if you are interested in seeing my thoughts on one of their new eyeshadow palettes, just keep reading!
Above is a picture of the four palettes that they released. The names are Comfort Zone (top left), Not a Basic Peach (top right), Rosé in the Air (bottom left), and Nude Awakening (bottom right). These are all remakes of older palettes with many added shades. They are all a mix of mattes and shimmers. The one palette that looks very familiar to a popular palette is the Rosé in the Air palette. It looks strangely similar to the Modern Renaissance palette but this also means that if you like the tones but don’t want to pay $42, you don’t have to! The selection of these are really great. You can create so many palettes with each palette. If I really like the Nude Awakening formula, I might just have to pick up more!
This is the Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette in Nude Awakening ($4.99). This is the first complete eyeshadow palette that they have come out with that includes mattes and shimmers. I think these palettes will bring Wet N Wild to the next level. Eyeshadow palettes are such staples for so many brands: Modern Renaissance for Anastasia Beverly Hills, Chocolate Bar for Too Faced, and the Naked palettes for Urban Decay. I chose Nude Awakening because I thought I could make multiple looks with it. The pink/champagne shimmers in this palette are right up my ally for my everyday looks. I could truly see myself using every shade in this palette. It is perfect for me!
Now to the most important part… the swatches! I was surprised when I swatched these. The mattes are very creamy and the shimmers are smooth and don’t flake off. I think the color payoff is very true to the actual color as well. I had a little trouble with the matte maroon shade because it swatched a little patchy and I had to go over it multiple times. I think it will be a shade that will have to be built up in order to look good on the eye. I think the shimmers would be applied best with a finger; that’s typically how I apply my shimmers anyway. I am very happy with how pigmented the black shadow is! That was only dipping into the palette once! I think that for the cheap price of $5 for 10 eyeshadow shades, it is really worth it!
I think that there are multiple day time and night time looks that could be made with this palette and I can’t wait to start working with it. If you don’t want to pay $40+ for a high end palette, I recommend picking one of these up!
