Wet n Wild: Hemporary Solutions

IMG_7917

Hey loves,

Today for my “Swatch Saturday” post I am going to be sharing something rather colorful! I know, color is something that is rarely on my blog. I’m a neutral kind of gal. However, when I stumbled on this palette (and another, but more on that in a few) some of the colors reminded me of shades I have seen in the Urban Decay Electric palette and in a few Sugarpill palettes. You know, palettes that I lust over but won’t spend the money on because I know I don’t reach for bright colors often. Those palettes.

Well, I have a solution! However, you may want to find these quick, because what I’m about to talk about is limited edition. I can hear you all sighing already. I’m so sorry. I wish limited edition and affordable eyeshadow palettes just weren’t a thing. It’s heartbreaking.

Anyway, this palette is by Wet n Wild, and I found it at my local Kmart. However, Wet n Wild can also be found at Walgreens and CVS. It was $5, and there are 8 shadows in the palette. That is essentially 62 cents per shadow, hell yes. There are 6 matte shades and 2 shimmer shades. I like that there are a few shimmery shades, because all matte bright colors can look a bit odd on my eyes, and the shimmer helps to balance that out a bit.

First thing I noticed is that every single color is bright. Super bright. If you’re someone that likes a warm transition shade, you will definitely need to pull from another palette, or you could possibly mix the white with another shade to create a lighter transition shade.

I only tried this once on my eyes so far, and I will say that even with a primer the pink and red kind of stained my eyelid a bit. Meaning, these are freakin’ intense. The pigmentation on these is superb, and reminds me of the former Wet n Wild quality from a few years ago that I’ve missed oh so much.

As far as I can tell from the few times I have tried this out, the shades are very blendable. They applied smoothly and didn’t look too chalky or drying on my lids. The colors didn’t look muddy and the same on my lids, which is a plus.

These are swatches of all 8 shades. Are you seeing that yellow and red? I would have paid the money just for those two shades! I have been looking for an affordable and nice yellow for awhile, because I want to go all out when we take my daughters to the Minions movie. Yes, I went there. Mom life. Minion life.

Do I recommend these? Yes. A million times yes. All of the yes in the world. If you see these, snag one of each in the collection, because like I said they won’t be around forever. If you like to play with color sometimes, but don’t want to spend $40+ on a palette to do so, check these out. There are 3 in the collection, and for $15 total you can walk out with 24 different shades to play with. That is a win in my makeup book.

Have you seen these? Have you picked one up, or are you going to? Let me know what your thoughts are! I’m totally going to play around with this palette more, and if I come up with a neat look I will post it! I may even post my minion look.

As always, thanks for reading if you made it this far! I hope you all enjoyed this short and sweet swatch saturday post. I picked up another one of these palettes that I will be posting swatches of soon!

Have a good day, lovelies.

  3. Minion lifeeeeeeeeeeee! You soooooooooooo need to document that look because I wanna see it! I was in Kmart the other day cause I remember you had told me they had a good selection of Jordana as well and I saw these palettes. I thought about picking them up, and have a feeling I might just go back as I can’t find them ANYWHERE else. Great post, girl!
