Wet n Wild Color Icon Eye Shadows – The Big Guns

Hello beauties! I’m concluding my exploration of the Wet N Wild eye shadows today with the 8 pan palettes.  Hold on to your lipstick, because we’re looking at 24 different shades today!

The 8 pan palette rainbow.

Comfort Zone was by far my favorite of the 3 palettes, which was not really surprising because I can’t stop putting neutrals on my eyes. Comfort Zone IMG_5360 The colors were shimmery, pigmented, and easy to blend. The back also had directions to different look combinations, I apparently was wearing the “Wild Look”. Ok. I loved the bronzy colors on the left side, and true to name, these are all shades in my comfort zone.

So about that mascara clumping...

I also thought the green/ grey colors on the right came out looking nice as well. I NEVER wear green eye shadow, so points to Wet N Wild for helping me overcome this fear.

My skin likes to absorb pastel colors as you can see on the top swatches.

I use to love wearing purples in college because I had read somewhere it made brown eyes pop, and I was pretty excited to try this palette out. I primed with NYX’s Jumbo Eyeshadow in Milk because light colors like the lavender shade on the left side of the palette don’t love showing up on my eyes, as evidenced in my looks below.

Even with the white primer, these colors came out very light on me. I also had difficulty blending it the way I wanted. To give the look more color, I added Jordana’s Liquid Eye Liner Pencil in Purple Fix on the top lash line, and the definer color and crease color from the left side of the palette on my bottom lash line. I feel like I look like I have a bruise, but this might be a good, conservative purple for others. On the right side of the palette, there were more dramatic colors to be had. Petal Pusher

Long story: No closed eye picture because I burned my eyelid when a drop of boiling water splashed on it. I don't know how I exist either.

I liked this side of the palette much better. The colors were more pigmented, easy to blend, and the whole look came together for a pretty amethyst like color. The definer color was also so dark I used it as eyeliner on both top and bottom lash lines. These colors also made my eyes look a bit green/hazel, which was exciting, because they are usually straight up mud brown.

Finally, I was going to stop with those two 8 pan palettes, but while visiting my friend in another city I stumbled upon Poster Child at a local Walgreens. Poster Child is my antithesis of eye shadow, but it was just sitting there, daring me to buy it. So I did. (It was $4.99, I couldn’t say no, it was bullying me!)

So. Poster Child. I don’t know if words are needed for these colors. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Poster Child

You can't see the yellow brow bone color on the top right because my skin is basically yellow. Sorry.

I layered and layered NYX’s Milk Pencil to make sure the colors would show up on my eyes. Oh, they did.

The pink shades are actually okay, I like it better than Spoiled Brat.

I'm a mermaid!

Poster Child So would I buy these again? Definitely Comfort Zone, most likely Petal Pusher, and only Poster Child if I was feeling like Cyndi Lauper.

However, I don’t regret getting them all because they are fairly nice quality eye shadows for the price, and now I have a pretty good collection of eye shadows. I could make a rainbow eye! Oh the possibilities!

Stayed tuned on Monday for my favorite drugstore lip products. (Because I can’t continue to do 2 different eye looks at once, I’m losing my mind and terrifying my husband.)

Question/s of the Day:
-Do light color eye shadows show up on your eye lids?
-Do you ever feel like your eye lids are fat? (I had this feeling often when taking close up pictures of them. I need an eye lid diet.)
-Do you ever wear blue eye shadow? Do you feel more like a mermaid or a woman of the ’80’s?

Love!
