As you can see in the featured image, today I would like to review Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection in 736 Petal Pusher, 737 Blue Had Me At Hello and 738 Comfort Zone. It claimed to be “perfectly color-coordinated shades with high pigment and pearl for ultra-impact color”, but is it true?
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection ($6) is a permanent product, meaning you can always grab your hands on them anytime. If you haven’t heard of the brand, let’s just say the American brand delivers the best drugstore eyeshadows. This is one of the first drugstore brands I ventured into when I first got ‘addicted’ to makeup.
Now, the packaging is made up of a clear-plastic lid with typical plastic containers. Each eyeshadow is embossed with where it is supposed to be applied, such as Browbone, Eyelid, Crease, and Definer. The palette comes with a doe-foot and brush applicator. At the back, there is a quick guide on how to use each eyeshadows to create desired look. There are some french there, just in case a French girl doesn’t understand English. (lol)
Jokes aside, let’s look at Petal Pusher. This palette consists of purple, pink and red color family. As you can tell from the swatches below, the first two eyeshadows do not show up clearly, but the second shade makes a lovely eye-corner highlight.
The rest of the eyeshadows are pretty pigmented and blends beautifully. I didn’t put on any primer on my arm so if you put on eye primer before applying this, the pigmentation is great and lasts for a good 6 hours.
Next up, we have Blue Had Me At Hello. This palette is made for all you party girls. Unless you are those who love to wear bright blue in the afternoon, you do you girl! I’m impressed with the pigmentation of these shadows, especially the first 4 shades. They feel creamy and there’s no chalky texture that you would usually expect from drugstore eyeshadows.
Mind you,the last color is a black shadow with glitters, so I suggest that when you apply, pat them onto the lid and gently blend. The key word is gently. Other than that, this palette is amazing.
Moving on to Comfort Zone. This is my favourite one out of the three. The palette has the most diverse combination, with pink, green, grey, and browns. It is versatile and the pigmentation blew my mind. For the price, this is an awesome palette.
These colors are so beautiful on its own that you can just apply one shade, blend and boom! You’re a bombshell. I love the last shade, which is a duo chrome brown-grey with gold reflects. The swatch below doesn’t do it justice, but if you see it in person, it’s a very unique shadow.
Overall: YASSS! The claim is true.
These palettes are available in Indonesia. Yes, you can either buy them in beauty stores or online.
