i fell in love with this after i saw a guru wore this all the time in her videos. although it is discontinued i found it at my local five below ( a 5 dollar and under store) i use the matte side way more than the shimmery side, and the mattes are similiar to mac's bisque(light), cork/wedge(med), and embark (dark). the top one i believe is sold as a single eyeshadow called brulee? and the gold in this palette too, i believe. the formula is creamy and soft, and easy to blend. i wish they never discontinued this!
I went through 2 of them already and when I went to buy another at my drugstore I was told it was discontinued, I panicked and went to every drugstore near me and couldn't find a single one !! I had to buy it on Ebay for freakin' 14$ !!! Yes that how much I like this palette, I'm just in love with the 2 lighter matte shades, I use them everyday. So if it's still available where you live, don't hesitate and just buy it , you won't regret it !
This is my second Wet 'n' Wild palette. The first one I got was 'Greed'. I love them both and on most days I'll use them together! This is a great basic palette to own because it has very pigmented browns that compliment any look! I ordered mine offline and when it came in the packaging was sort of messed up (the lid will not snap closed entirely). But, I adore this palette and I will be ordering more of these bc I honestly don't think I could live without them!
This. Product. Is. Necessary. I haven't even used the shimmery side. And after reading from another reviewer that this is being discontinued, I think I'm going to die. I typically use the lightest all over my lid and the second lightest as the contour. Add some winged liquid liner and I feel like a sexy pinup. The colors are so so so blendable. Again, I don't know what's been going on at Wet n Wild but they're really doing something right! This is one of those sets where it's guaranteed you'll hit pan.
This palette has 6 colors. 3 matte, and 3 shimmery ones. They are neutral which i like because i'm not that crazy girl bold color look. If that even made sense haha. i do wish that the color boxes are bigger and the brushes that come with it, you can throw those away cause they are so small and useless! The pigmentation is not great, but its not bad i would give it 3 stars. Without an primer, it stays about 2 hours on my oily lids.
Perfection. One of my best makeup finds ever. I'm from Australia, where a single M.A.C eyeshadow costs 33$. Wet n wild is not sold here, but I bought this online from "nonpareil boutique" (amazing site) for less than $5, and it is beautiful. It always seems to find it's way into whatever eyeshadow look I do, as the colours are very practical and also fantastic quality. The three matte eyeshadows are smooth, opaque and not chalky in the slightest. I can honestly say that they are BETTER than M.A.C's matte shadows (but then again I have never been particularly impressed by M.A.C's eyeshadows in general). I adore the pale shimmery eyeshadow as a wash, it gives the most beautiful and subtle sheen to my lids. I'm floored by the quality of this palette. Needless to say, I HIGHLY recommend it.
I don't even know where to start.. I have used this palette every single day since I discovered it in September of 2011, whether it be just a couple of colors for blending or highlighting or every shade in the palette for a slightly bolder look. It is the perfect blend of matte and shimmery shades. So many neutral looks can be achieved with this one palette. I also own the UD Naked palette and was infatuated with it for awhile, but have to say I was a little overwhelmed when trying to come up with looks using it. However, coming up with looks out of the Vanity palette is easy as pie. For everyday, I use the matte creamy shade all over my lids, the matte mid-tone warm brown in my crease, and the matte dark brown along upper and lower lash lines for a bit of definition. In conjunction with a great mascara, this combination gives me the PERFECT neutral everyday work or school look, but I can also achieve a great night-out or date look just by sweeping on a shimmery highlight or a bit of gold across the lid. I should mention that the shadows are soft and buttery and blend effortlessly when used with brushes (I love EcoTools and RealTechniques). Their softness can make them a little more prone to cracking if dropped, so be careful, but otherwise... this is the best eyeshadow palette I have come across in years - drugstore and high end!
Love it...I only wear the matte side because at my age shimmer just draws attention to the crows feet. I still think the shimmery side is gorgeous and wears exceptionally well, I just don't like shimmer. The matte side is perfect...middle shade on the lid, dark shade in the crease and light color as the highlight...it does not get any simpler than that... the result is classic and very pulled together. I got scared when I discovered it was being discontinued and went out and bought two backups. (my 23 year old daughter took one back to North Dakota with her). Dirt cheap and serves its purpose.
With a primer this palette will defeat any high end eyeshadow undoubtedly!
I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette! It has all of the shades you would need for a subtle or very dramatic eye look. The shadows are very pigmented and wear very well with any sort of primer, and the colours suit my hazel eyes very well. I would definitely recommend you picking up this palette, especially since it is quite cheap.
