Hey everyone! I meant to get these pics up here sooner, but was having problems uploading pictures on my computer. I wanted to bring you some swatches, so you could get an up-close look at the new 8-shade Color Icon palettes from Wet 'n Wild! I found them last week at my local Walgreens for $4.99! This blog will just be swatches (without primer) & general observations. I'll have a full video review soon, once I spend some more time testing these out!
I was so excited to tell you about these palettes in my All Drugstore Olive Eyes tutorial!
They were also featured in my More for your Money Makeup video!
This is the neutral palette of the three. All of the colors have shimmer and some are more sparkly than others. All shades are pigmented, but keep in mind, you only need a tiny amount of the dark shades to get the job done. The shade in the lower right hand corner is kind of deceiving, and a close dupe for Too Faced Label Whore. It's a brown with bluish metallic tone. I love the eyelid shade on the right, and all of the olive tones are great. All of these shades swatched so easily- very little effort required!
This palette seems to have the least impressive swatches on camera, but they truly are pigmented and very nice to work with. The top 2 shades on the left side don't have lots of shimmer, and are just softer shades in general. The deep periwinkle/lavender shades are awesome, and the crease shade on the right is a nice dupe for MAC Beauty Marked. The eyelid shade on the right didn't really deliver in the swatch- but it's soo pretty. Another one of those two-tone colors.
While some of the lighter shades got a bit washed out in the palette picture, the swatches are just lovely. While this group of colors centers around bold blues, you also get some nice basics... a matte black, a sparkly black, a silver, and a gorgeous shimmery navy with navy blue sparkle. Again- I used NO PRIMER with these swatches and was still able to get some very bold color payoff!
Thanks for stopping by my blog for some initial impressions on these palettes!
Check back with my YouTube channel for a full review very soon!
