Blue Week : 4. 10 – 4. 17
I finally got my hands on all three of the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collections. These eyeshadow palettes contain 8 eyeshadows (2 browbone shades, 2 crease shades, 2 eyelid shades, and 2 definer shades). Here’s my review and swatches of 737 Blue Had Me At Hello, a blue eyeshadow palette.
1 – white shimmer – It’s much more powdery in comparison to the other shades in this palette, or WnW shadow in general. It’s OK, but I find that I need a primer with it. I would of rather had a matte white in this collection.
2 – pale icy blue pearl shimmer – This is is a good color. It looks good under the brow bone when used with the darker blues in this palette.
3 – shimmery silver – This is a metallic silver, simple as that.
4 – beautiful teal with gold shimmer – The gold shimmer in this shade make it worth having. It’s a bold teal, really the “star” of this palette in my opinion. I like this one so much better than similar MAC shades that I have.
5- navy shimmer in an inky blue base – This is a really cool color. I find it odd that it is marked as lid color when it is just as dark as the definer shades, but whatever. I’m happy it is is in the compact. It’s a beautiful eyeliner shade.
6 – deep sapphire blue shimmer – Here’s another color that works well as a liner. I love a shimmery jewel tone.
7 – matte black – I love it. It’s wonderful for creating retro 1960’s Ursula Andress type eye makeup looks. It’s also a wonderful brow powder for those that want a dramatic black brow.
8 – black with silver glitter – It seems like this shadow is in 75% of WnW palettes! I rarely use such a color but many people love it. It’s a dupe of Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in The New Black.
Below is a dramatic look using this palette. I am only using this palette (no primer), mascara, and faux lashes. I used the teal (#4) from lash line to crease. I used the blackened blue (#5) in the crease and as a liner. I blended a bit of the light blue (#2) under the brow and halfway lining the bottom lash line. This palette is very versatile you can search on-line and see all of the cool things that people are doing with it.
If you want a blue eyeshadow palette, pick this one up. All of the shades are pigmented and blend easily. Wet n Wild is my favorite eyeshadow formula. They’ve beat out high end brands in my book. I don’t wear colors like this much anymore. Where was this palette when I was 20?! I love these shades but I feel they look much better on those with brown eyes, especially those with medium to dark complexions and brown eyes. These blues overpower my eye color but I will still wear this palette 🙂
These Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collections are a deal at under $5. That teal alone is worth that! Check out Wet n Wild’s website for more info.
