First Impressions: Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palettes


 I picked up these palettes (and a couple lipsticks) from Rite Aid today because they were BOGO, and after hearing a lot of positive things from bloggers I have to say that I was only halfway impressed. The matte shades (left column in each palette) were awesome, but the shimmery shades were mediocre. Actually, without a primer the shimmers were absolutely useless. I loaded up my brush with the shimmers and could barely get any color to show up when swatched. The mattes, on the other hand, were richly pigmented and smooth to apply.

 Sorry I don't have time to do a full on post with swatches of each color (need to study! 0_o), but just want to let you all know what I thought. When swatched over a base, the shimmers were fine (not outstanding), so I guess overall it's pretty good for the price (regularly $4.99 a palette). However, I think I'll end up returning these palettes and pick up some of their single, matte eyeshadows while they're on sale still. As I mentioned, I also picked up two lippies, but one of them (the color I actually liked) split right after I put it on!

In conclusion, I will probably be returning the palettes to get the single pan matte shadows, and either returning or exchanging the lipsticks as well :(

(sorry for the crappy photos, blogging from my phone again :P Anyway, back to studying!)
