OH MY WORD! Ok, so I have NO IDEA why it took me 76 years (approximately) to decide to buy this (interesting number of years considering I'm 27.) So, ok, I was already sold on Wet 'N' Wild eye shadows, but this is magical. Brulee is a warm matte ivory. It's infused with velvet, cashmere, silk, or all three or something. IT'S SO SOFT AND BUTTERY! It goes on like a dream, and is super pigmented to boot. Gosh. I really like the packaging, too. Simple, slender, yet still sleek-looking. So, over TFSI, it completely evened out my eyelid color. I wore it lid to brow, with a shimmery deeper brown in the crease with a dark brown liner, and full black lashes. I looked like a movie star from the 50's. This is GORGEOUS. Go buy it. You need it.
Perfect for a natural looking eyebrow highlight and even in the corners of my eyes. The texture is so creamy and easy to blend.
Ok, this is seriously amazing eyeshadow. I bought this on a whim, actually, because I wanted a more affordable version of MAC's Brulee. Texture and color density are top notch in this. This has become an everyday staple for my makeup routine. I actually already went out and purchased a back up of this, because at $1.59 there was no reason not to. Give this a try and you won't be sorry.
**Only down side is the packaging is a little annoying to open, and there is a small amount of crumbling around the edges of the pan after a few uses. Not a big issue at this price, though. Just get a backup. :)
Wet n Wild shadows are amazing. This one is a smooth, creamy matte skin toned color, perfect as a highlighter or all over the eye to even the skin tone. I hit pan on my first Brulee but then it began to break in big chunks, which is a downer, but for only two dollars, it is so worth it. I use this almost every day, and it has become one of my staples. Dare I say HG? This blows MAC Brulee out of the water!
Great pigmentation and very easy to work with at a price that's hard to beat!
WNW has stepped up their game!! My eyes lids have always been discolored with bluish veins and reddish spots. This eyeshadow covers EVERYTHING and looks just like my natural skin. Seems chalky in the pan but is really smooth when applying. I even apply this under my lower lashes to cover the reddness. Makes me look like I had 9-10 hours of sleep. Never creases and other shadows blend over Brulee like a breeze. Brulee is what BE Well-Rested eyeshadow failed to be.
I think this should be in everyone's collection. It is a great matte highlight color for the brow bone. I think it would work with everyone's skin color. For me it matches my skin exactly (NC15) so this is a very natural highlight/blender color for me. It works great for me to blend out darker shadows with this shade. On darker skin tones it would be a great highlight. It is somewhat chalky but not overly so. It is an awesome price--$2!!
I love the new wet n wild color icon products and brulee is a great shade but the packaging of it sucks! As many people have stated, it's extremely hard to open. Mine is crumbing around the edges and I haven't even dropped it or anything. I think it is crumbing because of how hard to have to open and close it. I thought I just got a bad one until I saw other people's reviews on here that had the same problem. Also some of my friends had the same problem. However this color is very pigmented and a great staple matte highlight or base shade that is unbeatable at only $2. I will just buy another one when mine is so crumbled it's hard to use. It is hard to find good matte shades for that cheap.
I was excited about this eyeshadow single because I've been buying the Color Icon trios and loving them. I bought this to use as an all-over base or highlighting color. The main problem is I can't get the case open. When I brought it home yesterday and took the sticky closures off (I hate those), I tried and tried to open without ruining my manicure. Finally my husband was able to open it. Unfortunately when I went to use it this morning he was not around to open it for me. I eneded up chucking it back into my makeup case and used something else. Pfft. I think this one will be going back and I'll get another one.
UPDATE: I still have trouble opening these little shadows but I use the blunt end of an eyeshadow applicator to pop them open now. :O)
Very nice matte finsh that works great as a base color. It goes on smooth and stays put. It also works well as a blending color. You can't beat the price.
