This post is all about my little collection of Wet n Wild eyeshadows. Wet n Wild is not sold in my country and it was really hard for me to get these ones. There are a lot of reviews on these... I will add another one :) Maybe it will be helpful for you.
|From left to right: Blue had me at hello, Petal pusher, Spoiled brat|
Let's begin with the Blue had me at hello e/s palette:
So, this palette consists of 8 eyeshadows. All of them are extremely soft (but not chalky), so you may experience some fallout (or maybe a lot of fallout? lol). My favourite one is that teal color :) As you can see they are divided into 2 columns and on each e/s it's mentioned where you should place it. The ones which are supposed to be used for your browbone area I really dislike. They are way too soft and even flaky, too shimmery, and the color payoff is very sheer to my liking. I tried using them on my tear duct and did not like the result neither. The other e/s are ok and I am often using them, especially the black e/s. Both black e/s are matte, one fo them comes with glitter and the color payoff is very good. Of course if you use the glittery black in the crease and blend it, all the glitters will disappear :) Anyways I like these, they blend so so well... I didn't expect this, because I have a lot of black e/s which I hardly work with... But not with these ones ;)
Movin' to the next ones... The 3rd e/s from the 1st column looks so gorgeous in the pan, but not so good after you've applied it :) You can see it on my swatches. If you just dab it on your lids without blending, the blue hue will be visible, but if you're gonna blend this color, it will transform into a flat black eyeshadow :) It's kind of a black e/s with blue flecks in it, I even can consider this one as the 3rd black e/s from this palette :) And the last 2 e/s which I didn't talk about I liked also, you can see on my swatches how pretty and pigmented they are. The blue is like a royal blue color, and it looks really good in combination with silver or teal from this palette!
All in one I am not sure would I recommend this particular palette? This palette would be perfect having a good one highlighting e/s, then removing that black with blue flecks and I guess one matte e/s would be enough to complete this one :)
Petal Pusher e/s palette:
This one disappointed me even more then the previous one... The only color I liked out of all these 8 e/s is the 2nd one from the 1st column. A very unique lilac with golden flecks... It can be used for some neutral looks, romantic looks... I enjoy this one a lot! The rest of colors I never use... I tried them few times and didn't like working with them, neither liked the result.
Again, two awful highlighting e/s! The 2nd e/s from the 2nd column disappointed me the most. At first sight, I thought this will be my fave! So, this e/s is a sheer purple loaded with copper flecks, in the pan it looks so interesting. After you apply it... it's almost zero color payoff. I have applied it over a creamy base, and when you try to blend it with another color for ex. all you get is a mess. All the flecks will be on your face, and a dirty sheer purple on your lids :) It looks very ugly to me. The next color after this one is also not what I have expected. Actually it is a black e/s with same copper flecks :) Of course when you blend it, it will transform into a black e/s with no flecks in it :) The glittery black is quite ok :) Even after I blend it, few flecks still are visible, you can dab some of this e/s again to make those flecks more obvious. The purple from the 1st column is pretty sheer for my liking (in my swatches I have applied them on a foundation) so you'll have to layer a lot this color. Also I'd like it to be brighter or deeper then it actually is. And the last e/s is a blue loaded with glitter of different sizes. After you blend it, all that remains is a dirty blue and tons of glitters. It's very hard to work with, because it doesn't blend well with other colors.
In conclusion, this palette I would not recommend. Most of e/s are lacking adhesion, and most of them have sheer color payoff.
Spoiled Brat e/s palette:
This trio is my favourite out of all my wet n Wild palettes I own! I love the quality of all these 3 e/s. They are very pigmented and blendable! I just don't use the silver as a highlighter as it's a bit dark for my skin tone :) But its color is so precious, like a foil ;) I was afraid of that pink with a blue hue in it... thought it will be so hard to blend. But hey, it blends like a dream! Very smooth and easy! I have used it to blend the black and it was awesome. It is not too bright, nor sheer, just as it is needed for my liking :) Not a con about this little baby ;) I think I want to try more of these trio e/s palettes :) I really recommend it to everyone if you enjoy these colors! Or you can check other color combinations of these trio palettes. I suggest you trying these instead of those 8 e/s palettes ! :)
IMPORTANT : As all these e/s are soft, try to use a creamy e/s base. This will prevent their fallout. Also they will stick better to your lids and look more vivid.
I don't know unfortunately where you can get them, but I am sure they are sold in most USA drugstores.
