Wet n' Wild Color Icon palette in Greed (246) swatches + review!
I know, I know. You guys have seen me talk ages about Wet n' Wild now! But, the quality of these palettes are awesome for just a mere $5 each! I was asked by a reader about pigmentation, lasting power, etc. on the Wet n' Wild Color Icon palettes. And then, I remembered that I haven't swatched the four regular palettes like I promised! (Thanks Shanna!) So sorry about that, but they're here now! Today, I'm starting with Greed (246). All of the palettes include three mattes in the first column, and frosty/lustre-textured colors in the second column. Greed includes three peachier tones with a matte and shimmer black, and a light periwinkle with a gold frost. Every time I've used the mattes, they haven't let me down! On the other hand, the frost/lustres aren't very pigmented. They also tend to leave a good amount of fall-out on the cheeks. The periwinkle and peach shimmer are better served as washes on the lid. And, in my opinion, the best use for the black shimmer would be trying out a lighter-hand smokey eye. It's a very versatile palette though! I've used it plenty of times since I bought it a few months back. If you're a neutral shadow nut, this needs to be in your collection! Here are pictures of the palettes and swatches. Enjoy!
