So this week I FINALLY found the new Wet n’ Wild eyeshadows! I have heard lots of great things about these shadows, and it has been hard for me to believe. In my mind, Wet n’ Wild is still the really cheap, terrible brand it was years ago, but apparently they have reformulated their product and I have heard rave reviews from so many people! My Walgreens had all of the trios and 2 of the 8-shadow palettes in stock, so I went a little crazy, as I know a lot of you would appreciate some input from me about them!
This first palette I’m going to review is one of their 8 shadow palettes- “Blue had me at Hello”. The name reminds me of the play-on-words names that OPI does :)
For the most part, the color payoff on these is really impressive! I was disappointed with the sparkly black on the bottom right, as it looked so pretty in the pan, but swatted was a huge let-down. The matte black on the bottom left is awesome, and the teal and blues on the right are great too!
Something worth mentioning- the shimmery colors are messy and fragile! I just swatched these once and the imprinted lettering already had started to fade, and there was a lot of shadow that didn’t get picked up by my brush that become loose and kind of useless, so they are a little wasteful in that aspect, unless you picked up shadow and the pressed the extra into your brush.
This palette was $4.99 at Walgreens. I just found out it’s also available at Drugstore.com, which has 8% cash back if you visit through Ebates. If I had known this two days ago I would have ordered online and not at Walgreens!
