I decided to go ahead and post the Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette review and swatches today.
This is for all of the 2014 Color Icon palettes released.


As you know, I won these in a giveaway. I didn't pay for them, but I'm not obligated to review them or show swatches. I just wanted to share them. :)

I've loved the 3 pan and 6 pan Color Icon palettes that Wet n Wild has released in the past. They're inexpensive, pigmented and pretty great. Sure, some of the shades are chalky, some don't blend the best but for the most part, they're worth it.

This isn't the case with the new release. They don't seem to have the same quality they previously had. Don't get me wrong, some of these shades are beautiful, pigmented, smooth and easy to blend, but others are chalky, lack pigmentation and are just a pain to work with.

The bright side is, even if some shades are a miss, they're still inexpensive, so it's not a big deal to buy the palette for one or two shades. What is disappointing is that I know Wet n Wild is capable of making amazing eyeshadows, so it's annoying that some of these aren't so great.

You can purchase these at drugstores. The smaller palettes retail for $2.99 and the 6 pan retail for $5.

So, here are all of the swatches! These are all without a base, and one swipe. You'll be able to tell which ones are great and which ones are lacking.

That's it!

So, which are my faves? I love The Naked Truth and Art in the Streets.

Both of those have the same quality you're used to.
The rest all have hit & miss shades.

There isn't one palette that is all bad. There are good & bad shadows in each, and if you like the shades, I recommend picking them up as the majority of them are still pretty nice.

Thanks for reading!
