I'm in love...With Wet n Wild holiday palettes.
I went everywhere, called everywhere looking for these. I couldn't find them anywhere near me. Finally, I decided to call a Walgreens 30 minutes away from me, and they had them! So I actually made the 30 minute trip, out of love. When I finally arrived, I had to calm myself down and hold back from fanning myself in public when I saw them. They are gorgeous. O...M...G. Six beautifully coordinated eye shadows in each palette. They are seriously so stunning. The quality is fabulous. They're pigmented, soft, and long lasting. Some don't even need a primer. I only got 3, Night Elf, Golden Goddess, and Sugar Plum. Colors range from sheer shimmers, pigmented and shimmery, to pigmented with fine glitter. If you don't have these I definitely recommend them. You'll love them as much as I do! I'm so glad these came out during the holidays because they colors fit perfectly.
The 1st is a sheer white with purple shimmer (tdf!), 2nd a light pink mauve with very fine silver glitter, 3rd a light lavender WITH GOLD SHIMMER omg, 4th a medium purple mauve with gold shimmer (fans self), 5th a metallic grape purple, and 6th a dark blackened plum purple. Makes a HOT, I'm talking HOT sex kitten smokey eye. Amazing!! Add this color to my smokes for browns list.
The 1st shadow is a white highlighter and the 2nd a metallic silver. In the pan, the 3rd shadow looked like It was going to be a dupe of MAC Patina. But swatched It was more golden. Then the 4th shadow is a red with slight red shimmer. Swatched dry It's a light red, over primer It brings out the full blown red. The 5th shadow (brown with green duochrome) is a close dupe of MAC Club and Too Faced Label Whore. I think It's closer to Label Whore since they both have more green to them. The black shadow is a close dupe for MAC Black Tied. Black Tied is very dry and gritty, which is hard to work with. This one is softer and the glitter isn't gritty. I couldn't get the black to come off my finger, It just wanted to stick to the primer I had leftover on my finger. Oops!
The first shadow is a sheer white with light gold shimmer. Beautiful highlighter. The 2nd is a peach with gold shimmer (this ones my fav, ugh, so hot), very pigmented and soft. Then the next 3 are similar. A gold, a bronze, and an bronzish orange, with gold shimmer. The last color is a dark brown with slight plum to it. Very slight. With find gold glitter. It's super freaking hot! Makes a great smokey eye.
First picture was taken with flash, 2nd with bright natural lighting. I'm talking full blown sunlight. It felt like my arm was being cooked! Hope this review was helpful! Now, go stock up on these before they're gone! They are on FIYAH!
