Wet n Wild Color Icon Palettes

Wet n Wild Color Icon Palettes

One of my favorite drugstore brand is Wet n Wild. If you’ve used their products then I’m sure I don’t have to explain myself. I especially love their Megalast lipsticks and Color Icon palettes. The Wet n Wild Color Icon palettes come in different variety but today we will talk about the 8-piece eye shadow palette in Blue Had Me at Hello and Comfort Zone.

I purchased these palettes at the BX on base for $3.99. That’s right, if you’re new to Wet n Wild, their products are only $0.99 to $4.99 average. They are so affordable I can’t contain myself from raving so much about them.

On the other hand, If you’ve followed my videos from when I was in the Philippines, you may remember a few Wet n Wild palettes I purchased at MOA (Mall of Asia) and honestly they were expensive. It’s probably because of the taxes plus the mall cut. The palettes retail for around 300-500 PHP. even their lipsticks are pricey because they are priced at 199-299 PHP.

Anyway, I just wanted to share that information since I’m assuming that majority of my readers are based in the Philippines. I feel you! But I believe there ‘s a  growing number of online shops and sellers on eBay that offer Wet n Wild products for reasonable prices.

Moving on, here are the two palettes I purchased:

Wet n Wild Blue Had me at Hello

L – Blue Had Me at Hello  R – Comfort Zone

PROS:

  • The Wet n Wild Color Icon palettes are so affordable!
  • The packaging is durable enough to sustain minor accidents (I’m a klutz)
  • You can easily de-pot these eye shadows.
  • The names are super cute!
  • The color combinations are so complimentary and are absolutely gorgeous!
  • The pigmentation of these eye shadows are AWESOME! But if you are new to makeup, you might find it a bit challenging to work with.
  • They are easily blended and applies on the lids effortlessly.
  • They stay on all day without creasing on me!
  • These two palettes have been my go-to the past two months. Comfort Zone is great for every day wear or for neutral but non-boring looks, while Blue Had me at Hello is more for the adventurous ones or for a night out.

CONS:

  • They tend to have a bit of fall-out especially the dark colors.
  • They can be challenging to work with if you are not used to working with eye shadows.
  • Both palettes don’t have enough matte eye shadows.
  • Wet n Wild products in general are not as easy to get a hold of in my area.

These are the swatches of the eye shadows:

Blue Had Me at Hello

 

 

Blue Had Me at Hello contains a silver, gray, navy blue, matte black, glittery black, bright blue, turquoise, and a light blue. All the colors work well together so you can create so many different looks in this color range.

 

Comfort Zone

 

 

Comfort Zone contains a mix of different colors and an iridescent eye shadow. I truly enjoy using this palette for natural looks. I haven’t really used the olive and green shades because I’m not  a huge fan of them, but I am not completely closing myself to using them one day. I am currently brain storming looks for a Holiday tutorial using the iridescent eye shadows just because it’s unique to me and is so pretty on the eyes. It gives a chrome-like finish on the lids!

So what do you think of these palettes? Do you have them too? What looks have you done with them! If you have a blog post of video tutorial on YouTube using these palettes let me know so I can check them out!

I wish I can get my hands on all the color Icon collection. Maybe I’ll drop by a proper drug store in the city just to hunt for them. That is all for my review and stay tuned for my Wet n Wild Megalast lipstick review and demo.
