Review + Swatches: Wet n Wild “Smoke and Melrose” Eyeshadow Palette
What it Is: A Limited Edition 5-Pan palette of Wet n Wild’s Color Icon eyeshadows for Fall 2014
What it Does: This palette contains five gorgeous, highly pigmented, buttery smooth eyeshadows all in rose-tinted shades.
What it Costs: Only $4-$5
Where to Get it: Drugstores, like Walgreens, or online retailers
Similar To: Urban Decay Naked3 Palette ($54)
Quick Verdict: Thumbs wayyyy UP!
Wet n Wild did it again this season. The incredibly affordable drugstore brand is notorious for coming out with limited edition products that are (usually) amazing quality. Sometimes they come out with intense, neon colors, and often their eyeshadow palettes/trios contain colors that really don’t make much sense together, but the Fall 2014 collection is just gorgeous! Specifically the Smoke and Melrose palette.
There are three other palettes in this collection, and I honestly thought that they were all gorgeous (but we must RESTRAIN OURSELVES). Wet n Wild also released some new lipstick shades (for a later post!) and nail polishes.
Wet n Wild Smoke and Melrose contains five eyeshadow colors that just scream Fall. There is a great mixture of both matte and shimmery shades, which makes this palette very sophisticated and totally useable for anyone. All of the shades are slightly “rose-toned”, similar to the shades in the Urban Decay Naked3 Palette… however I’d venture so far as to say that these eyeshadows perform a bit better than those in the Naked3! I was disappointed by the HUGE amount of fallout in that installment of the Naked palette range, and this inexpensive little guy contains similar shades that go on like butter. Smooth, pigmented, and with little to no fallout, especially with a primer.
The only thing I have to say against this particular palette (and most Wet n Wild eyeshadows in general) is that I would NOT use these shades where they say to use them. There is no way I’m putting a dark plum/taupe shade on my brow bone. Nope.
