I am on constant look out for something cheap and useful; be it any city or any store, I always look for something unique, not heavy on pocket and can be put to some use. That’s why I frequently visit thrift stores and drug stores to feed my stinginess.
On my usual thrift trip to my local drug store, I came across wet n wild cosmetic display stand with awesome deals and without further ado I grabbed a bunch of cosmetics (eyeshadow, blush, lip gloss and so on) but sadly not all of them were a hit.
Following is the review of one of the 2 eyeshadows I purchased.
Five amazing shades in one convenient package for an unbeatable price! Each eyeshadow palette features five distinct shades that can be mixed and matched to create a unique look for every style. From matte to ultra-shimmer, these long-lasting, highly pigmented formulas are satiny-smooth for crease resistant wear. Enriched with Macadamia Oil, each shadow provides continuous moisture that improves the appearance of the delicate eye area.
My Take On Wet N Wild Floral Values Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette:
One look at the eye shadow case and you would know it is custom made for beginners. Anyone, who is new to the art of eye shadow blending or is a dilettante in the field of makeup, should totally grab this one and enhance their skill before they start dabbling with more expensive brands.
Packaging: Each color is placed in small separate section with its usage engraved on the surface of the color, as shown in the figure below. One can follow these steps to blend the colors and achieve a flawless yet effortless look, which is ideal for party or even office.
Texture: It is a powder eye shadow set in cake form but is very smooth and easy to apply. Even the shade with mild shimmer is smooth and does not feel gritty.
Color: Dark blue, pale lavender, cream white, rose pink, light purple.
Pigmentation: Very good pigmentation. I gently swiped my finger tips on the shadows to take a picture and was delightfully amazed to see the color my finger tips picked up. Two swipes are enough to get an intense eye look.
Wear time: 5-6 hours after which it starts to crease. One can increase the wear time with a primer or white eye shadow underneath.
Conclusion: This is a very good product for the money paid. Each palette offers varying range of shades which are sufficient to complete the look. The shade Floral Values might not be that visible on dark lids, hence one has to use a corrector or concealer and further layer with primer to get make the color more obvious.
Pros of Wet N Wild Floral Values Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette:
• Sturdy travel friendly packaging.
• Dark shades with mild shimmer, ideal for a night out.
• Decent staying power.
• Perfect for beginners.
• Pocket friendly.
• Easily available online or in stores.
• Definitely worth the money.
Cons of Wet N Wild Floral Values Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette:
• Brush it comes with is very useless ( but usually it’s the same case with all product).
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Wet N Wild Floral Values Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette?
Maybe not, but I recommend it to all the beginners or people who love makeup but can’t fish out a large chunk of money. Also, for people who party once in blue moon, this eye shadow is god send. So go grab one.
