Wet n Wild: Swatches & Review (Long Post)

I know its been a while since i said i would post this but since my first haul i bought more wet n wild products and i wanted to post all of them in one post so I'm sorry i took a while but here it is =) Enjoy!

Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes
 Wet n Wild has four of these palettes and i have all four but i didn't post the vanity palette(one of my favorite ones) because my son was playing with it and one color complete broke off and it doesn't look pretty so i didn't want to post it since i didn't have all the colors. Anyways the price ranges from $3-$5. 

So This Palette Is Called the Lust palette and it's probably one of my favorite because i love purples and the eye shadows are so pigmented and they apply smoothly.

1st Row: matte
1st color: is a pale baby pink that i always use a lid color
2nd color: is a bright medium pinky purple that reminds me of the matte version of MAC's Nocturnelle. i use this in my crease
3rd color: it's a very deep purple that almost looks black if applied too much but a very nice color to darken the outer crease.
2nd Row: Sheer
1st color: is an ivory color with a slight sheen and small silver glitter/sparkles that i always use as the highlighter.
2nd color: a deep semi metallic gray color that reminds me of MAC's knight Divine
3rd color: this looks the same as the 3rd color in the first row but this one has small pink glitter/sparkles.

The Lust palette is a must have and will compliment any skin tone and any eye color especially green eyes.

This palette is the pride palette and i think it's the most pigmented and brightest colors out of all of them and it applies smoothly as well and it is a bit hard to blend but it doesn't bother me. i like all the colors in this palette.

1st Row: Matte
1st color: a matte white that i use as a lid/highlight color.
2nd color: a matte sea foam green that kinda reminds me of a minty color but a bit deeper. i use this as a lid/crease color.
3rd color: a matte navy blue color that i use to deepen up my outer crease
2nd Row: Sheer
1st color: a sheer white color that i often use as a highlight or used in the inner corner of my eye.
2nd color: a light and shimmery version of the sea foam green in the 1st row.
3rd color: a dark sheer blue that reminds me of MAC's Deep Truth

The Pride palette is nice to have but not a must have because it's very bright and some people are more into neutrals.

This palette is called the greed palette and this palette is my least favorite but i don't hate it. It applies kinda chalky so you'll need a good primer and brush. This palette is more on the neutral side.

1st row: Matte
1st color: a matte soft light beige that reminds me of MAC's brule. i use this as a lid/highlight color.
2nd color: a matte peach that reminds me of MAC's Samoa silk. i apply this as a lid/crease color.
3rd color; a matte black like MAC's Carbon. used to deepen the outer crease.
2nd Row: 
1st color: a light sheer gray with a gold sheen/undertone. this is a nice highlight/lid color
2nd color: a light sheer peach with a gold sheen/undertone. good for highlight/lid
3rd color: a soft black with lots of shimmer and silver sparkles like MAC's black tied. good to deepen the outer crease
The greed palette i actually do like, reason why it's my least favorite is because the colors are neutral and some are not so pigmented and are very sheer. but overall it's a nice to have palette especially for the price.

Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio Palette

Wet & wild has i believe 12 different trio palettes and a lot of them didn't catch my attention so i only bought three to test out. These palettes are not as pigmented as the original 6 eyeshadow color icon palette. The palettes range from $2-$4 depending on where you get them.

This palette is called I'm getting sunburned and it's very pigmented and the color payoff is great. A Must have
1st color: is a very  light pink color that is very sheer and it hardly shows up but you could build it up and if applied under a white base it does stand out. i use it to highlight but not on the brow bone. on the crease or inner corner
2nd color: a very pigmented dark chocolate brown with gold glitter/sparkles used as a crease color
3rd color: a very pigmented gold/bronze shimmery/metallic lid color.

This palette caught my attention because green and purple have always been my favorite colors. the pigmentation is not so great and it can be slightly chalky.
1st color:  a really soft pastel green that has a slight sheen.

2nd color: this color is a dark medium purple with a slight sheen

3rd color: this is a forest green with a slight sheen

This palette is ok but you can skip it. 

This palette has very neutral colors that is perfect for those who want an almost natural look. This is nice to have but skip if u want a lot of color payoff.
 1st color: a light beige with a sheen. this is a highlight color.
2nd color: a very soft light brown with a sheen that nice to add a bit of natural depth to the crease.
3rd color: This is a sheer light rosy pink that gives the lid a nice natural glow.    
I usually use this palette when i want to do a pin-up look or i want to wear a bright lip because it's very natural looking.

Color Icon Single Eyeshadow
There are 7 shades in single eyeshadows and they are just as pigmented as the palettes and they range from $1-$3 with tax 
The first light color is a matte called brulee and it actually looks a lot like MAC's brule. I noticed that this color is in a few of the color icon palettes so if you have the palettes then you don't really need to buy the individual version unless you run out then you don't have to buy the full palette for this color you can just buy this. i reach out for this color often because it's great for a highlight or for the lid when I'm doing neutrals. and this color is really pigment and applies very smoothly better than MAC's brule (sorry mac)

so the second color is a light sheer taupe color called Nutty and its not a whole lot of color since it's a neutral but it's perfect for any makeup look. I've used it for neutral and smokey looks and it even tones down a bright look. It does apply sheer and a bit chalky but it's a unique color since i don't have anything like this. i don't reach for it often and it's not a favorite but for the price it's worth it and it's a nice color to have.

Wet n Wild and NYC eyeliner
Left swatch: wet&wild creme eyeliner  Right swatch: NYC liquid eyeliner

When i was looking at the wet 7 wild makeup i saw this cream eyeliner and i don't need one but i bought since it was the last one and it was like $2.99 awesome right. I also bought a liquid eyeliner and i know its NYC but i wanted to include it since it was bought the same day.

So the creme eyeliner is waterproof which is an A+ since my eyes are watery 24/7 and it actually applies smoothly and it does last and didn't smudge. I will say though that it wasn't like an intense/jet black but when you apply it you can't tell. As far as waterproof it is long wearing and it did its job and i was surprised because it was hard to remove. For the price and size it's a good eyeliner so i do recommend it. oh and as far as the brush included..don't use it, it doesn't apply it good(it applies streaky) and it's kinda thick. but with your own brush it applies great.

Now the liquid eyeliner is great as well, it's really black it lasts and my favorite part is the brush applicator. i really love a thin brush applicator because i can control how thick or thin i want my eyeliner. Some people might not like it because it can be hard to apply if your not used to it.   (you need a steady hand to apply this) my sister likes the shorter more sturdy brush like the elf's liquid eyeliner. i like a precise eyeliner so this liquid eyeliner is great and it was like $3 so even better!

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher
The blush is in heather silk and i wanted to get the wine blush and the berry one but they only had this one which i still like. It applies smoothly and it's very pigmented like the color icon eyeshadows. I really like it but you do have to have a light hand or you will apply too much since it is quite pigmented. If I applied too much it looks overdone because this color can be quite bright on my medium tan skin tone so i think it would look much better if your fair to medium skin tone. I'm more on the darker side. Overall i do like the blush and i will definitely buy the other more deeper shades that will probably compliment my skin tone better.

Wet n Wild Lipsticks
So spring is here and i have tons of nude lipsticks and i thought it was about time to rock the bright lips.
so i bought the brightest lipsticks i saw and i love them! 
So i had been looking for a fuchsia lipstick for a while but i was kinda skeptical about this one because of the blue pearl. (i don't like blue based lipsticks) but this one is lovely and it is quite bright. you can definitely see the blue sheen in the pics but on the lips it looks amazing. it has a nice pearly finish and it applies smoothly. The only thing that i dislike is that i have to keep applying it over my lips like 4 times to get the true color. it's not as opaque as it looks but it is buildable so problem fixed! definitely recommend it. but I'm still trying to get comfortable enough to wear this outside my house lol and i am I'm just waiting on the right outfit for it lol. oh and the price was 75 cents shocking huh lol

This lipstick is a hot pink shade and it has a matte finish. It has a nice color payoff and it is pigmented but you also have to build it up just not as much as the fuchsia one. it is quite bright but i really like it because it's matte and that's my favorite kind of finish. I do have some is drying on your lips and it applies harshly and it tugs on your lips when applied so i highly recommend you exfoliate then apply lip balm/chapstick prior to application. other than that i really like the color so I'm going to go pick up some more shades. the price was like $2.30 something

P.S- on the bottom left corner i wanted to include a pic to show you how much product it has and it's actually quite a lot

You can purchase all these products at any drugstore such as walmart, rite-aid, walgreens. I bought mine at walmart and some at Winco which are even cheaper than at walmart.

  1. Pride looks gorgeous! I don't have that one, it never really appealed to me cause the colors didn't look like colors I'd use a lot but it really does look gorgeous. I might have to pick it up! Omg! lol My makeup wishlist grows with every click I do hahaha.

    Wow! I see what you were talking about with the Gold in Sunburned! It's lovely!! The Pink is pretty too! <3

    The creme liner I've tried before & yeah you're right the brush for it, is kind of annoying. It made a thick line & back then I didn't use my own brushes so I depended on the ones that came in the packaging. ;( Plus mine dried out super fast! Perhaps it was cause I was a careless broad lol But you're right, it's a really good liner!

    & That's a gorgeous blush!! It looks so pink! I love it <3

  2. @Dinorah ♥yea i don't wear blue eyeshadows often but i picked up the palette cause i wanted to have all of them but the colors are really nice. and omg girl i know what you mean..everytime i look at a review on a blog i go out and buy the makeup lol. For the eyeliner you should try it with the elf studio angled eyeliner brush it works amazing. and i think you should definitely try the blush it would look beautiful on you because you have fair skintone.
