After searching high and low on ebay, I finally got my hands on this discontinued LE eyeshadow pallette. And I am glad I did. I love, love, love the MAC Club dupe (the greenish-red in the bottom left) and the true red shade. I find this palette is similar to Cover Girl's Drama Eyes Quad so if you don't have the Night Elf, pick up CG instead. Their red is more cranberry and they don't have a bronzy-gold shade or the MAC dupe but every other shade can make a similar smoky eye look.

I had the hardest time getting my hands on this palette, but I think it was worth it in the end. The shades are all so smooth and pretty, and it's really unique in the realm of affordable, drug store makeup. Way to go, Wet'n'Wild. Please make more products like this!

I was surprised to find this holiday palette (and the three others) in January 2011 at a Wallgreens in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We were stranded in 35 degree Florida (cold Florida, what?) because of a blizzard in NYC, so finding the holiday palettes wasa nice consolation prize. I bought them all, as the store was running 50% off all WnW products. They were $3.50 each.
I mainly bought this palette because of the hype -- about the duochrome and the red, even though I knew the red wasn't something I would wear.
I have focused on the left side colors (the creme, the taupe, and the duochrome) and I found they work really well together on me, sporting pale pale skin, brown hair, and hazel eyes. The lower left duochrome is a very unique color and I think a high end brand would charge $15-$30 for this shade by itself.
The shiny grey and sparkly black are very similar to colors in the Spoiled Brat Coloricon Trio and very similar to shadows I already have in my collection. The Coloricon Trio came out after the Holiday palette though -- I just happened to purchase them at the same time. I always love a sparkly black, but how many can you have? I was surprised this one wasn't that pigmented, but at $6.99 (or the $3.50 I spent) it's no big deal.
I think this palette would work really well on a darker tinted skin (and I have seen many people prove this on the web) and overall I think Wet 'n Wild is doing a fantastic job of delivering fabulous eyeshadows at dirt cheap prices. Kudos to Wet 'n' Wild. They have really stepped up their game.

The reason this palette caught my eye was because of the red. It's hard to find a nice red eye shadow that doesn't break the bank.
I used the silver, red & black to make a dramatic smokey eye. Love it.
I actually don't love the Mac club & TF label wh*re dupe because I don't look good in the color! The formulas nice, the color just doesn't work on me.
Overall, if you find this palette & like the colors get it!

Being only 17 years old without a job, finding great make-up for a great price is the best thing ever. I bought the Night Elf palette because I love creating dramatic, smokey looks, but the awesome thing about this palette is that you can create natural day-time looks as well. The pigmentation of the shadows is great, and I would have to say my favorite color is the one in the bottom left corner (the mahogany-ish color with the green duochrome). There are a few companies I can name off the top of my head who make a color exactly like it, but to get 5 more colors with it for only $4.99 is SWEET! However, as with all other wet 'n' wild products, the packaging is kind of ugly but I guess it's pretty sturdy and that's what matters. I highly recommend this palette, but you better get it quick because it's limited edition!!

Love Love Love Wet n Wild Color Icon palettes. The shadows are extremely pigmented and creamy. I was so impressed that I bought all 4 regular palettes and all 4 holiday palettes. they are a great deal and work amazing.

I have to admit i was late discovering WnW for their eyeshadows., but alas - say LE to me and the hunt is ON! Lol., i managed to grab all four of the holiday palettes in a day at 8-10 different drug stores. Rite aid., cvs., walgeens.....the only place i found them was at walgreens. Now-on to the review.
I have to give WnW some major props for picking up their game with their eyeshadows. Well done! Any of these are just as good as any of my mac/ud/tarte/elauder...some are better.
The beown color in the bottom left swatched on my skin along with club., blue brown pigment and ud lounge- is an exact dupe of ud lounge. Club and its pigment counterpart have more of a brown base where ud lounge has a red-orange base. Exactly the same as the wnw night elf color. Dgmw., its gorgeous all the same and there Are no losers in this palette. If you see it GRAB IT!

These are high quality shadows that can go toe-to-toe with any of the HE brands in a really ugly container.
I have found a great way to use the red shadow. I use it as a lip powder over balm and it gives a beautiful natural rosy YLBB look. It lasts a very long time with virtually no transfer. I wish I could find another palette just so I could have another one of these colors.
The MAC club dupe actually works much better for me. Club pulled red while this only has a hint of burgandy. It is a very wearable color that is quite unusual.
The white is great as an accent in the corner of the eyes and under the brow.
They all are easy to blend and have great staying power. Now if I could depot them into a nice container, I would be so happy.

I looked high and low for weeks on end to find this palette. When I finally did, I was so excited to finally try it out that I think I built myself up a bit too much about what to expect. Overall, the quality is on par with the rest of their palettes....buttery, creamy formula and pretty good pigmentation. On the other hand, the burnt golden color is a bit on the chalky side and transfers quite a bit lighter than it appears in the pan. The MAC Club dupe on the bottom left turned out surprisingly red on me, but it's still a lovely color. It's more of a red/brown duochrome on my skin. But the red shade is exactly what I'd hoped it would be: creamy, really pigmented, true to color, and very blendable.

Wow!!!!!! I'm very happy that I decided to purchase this LE palette after all. I kept seeing it at my local grocery store and was on the fence about it for the longest time. The reason I decided to purchase it is because it's the most unique of all the WW color icon palettes out so far (even the regular collection). I swatched all the colors and they are so creamy (except the black glitter). All of them have some sparkles to them, none are matte. The red color is really nice, but not as pigmented as the rest of the colors. You'll probably have to use a base for the red. The only color I probably won't wear much is the black glitter color. It has chunky glitter that will probably end up all over my face. The eyeliner it came with is okay but it has sparkles so I'm not too keen on it. This is a fabulous find for such a low price. Great for doing a festive look for an evening out. The only reason I wouldn't purchase again is because it's LE and because these colors will last me a long time.

I am in love with this palette. The colors are pigmented and for the low . If your looking to figure out what to do with the red. Check out Queenblend on Youtube and look up her red and black eyeshadow tutorial. I tried it and I love it. I might have to go back and get another one for back up! The dupe for club is def better then MAC's Club and very easy to use. This is a must buy for anyone's collection even if you dont wear drugstore products!!! For $4.99 six eyeshadows and a eyeliner. It was like wow! Just could not believe how good the color pay off was.

I was late getting in on the bandwagon with these, but luckily they had all 4 sets at my grocery store, so I got Night Elf and Golden Goddess. I had to get NE if only for the red, which of course is a rare color. I was uncertain how much I would be able to do with this palette since red can really accent any eye redness and make it look like you've been crying, but I forged ahead anyway.
The top left cream color is very nice as a highlight just under the brow. I like the silver and wore it on my lid. The gold on the middle left is also pretty and I used it on the outer half of my lid. The red is pretty, a true red; it's a little chalkier than the others but is still very workable and definitely SHOWS UP on your eye so be careful. I actually put this on my outer V. The Club dupe on the bottom left I put in the crease and a little on the outer V to kind of tone down the red slightly. The weird thing about it is that when you swatch it with your finger, you see green. Then when you rub it off on your arm (I was testing the colors before using), it turns a sort of warm, reddish brown (IMO, on me personally) and sort of looked like a bruise! But on my eye I thought it looked nice, even though I can't see the green duochrome at that point. The black was the nicest surprise of all. I used it DRY as a liner and it worked very well. It stayed on all day and looked sparkly and nice.
I wore UDPP in Eden under the whole thing and had no creasing issues. My eyes are dark brown and I am very light-complected, so I'm not sure if this palette exactly complements my coloring, but I don't think it looked bad either. It was fun to wear and I'll do it again! I think the colors are all nice, very workable, and you can use just some of them or mix them with some mattes that you might have in other singles or palettes if you're afraid of being overly shimmery.

The only two colors I like from this palette is the goldish-taupe color, and the silver. The white with a tinge of gold is also OK. These two colors are really highly pigmented and would look great in an eye look. But - the color that is supposed to be the big draw to this palette is the alleged dupe for MAC Club, is not fantastic in my opinion. It is more like the MAC Blue Brown pigment - but finishes more of a red-brown. I really don't care for it! Since this palette is less than $5 at Walgreens, and also includes a mini black eyeliner, for the two colors that I do like, I'm OK with it. The payoff for these colors is FAR superior to the other WnW holiday palette I tried - Sugar Plum Fairy. I have a review on that one as well. I have also reviewed a few of the WnW singles.

It took me weeks and weeks to track this down. I actually gave up, and found it by chance. LOVE the shadows. They are rich and blendable, but not too shimmery. Like the tiny eyeliner, too. However, I'm disappointed with the case. Remember the ones with the cool full-sized slide-out mirror? What happened to that? I would also prefer that they not even bother putting in the tiny useless brushes and applicators. But overall these shadows are excellent, and so cheap!

Love this palette. WnW is doing the damn thing. I really only bought it for the Club dupe - it's beautiful. Much more 'magical' than the MAC one regarding the duo-chrome effect. (Club has always appeared to be a plain muddy green to me. Never saw the duo-chrominess in it. Therefore, never bought it. )

I am not even lying when I say this is probably the best palette I own. I originally bought it because of the Club dupe and the red color, but when I swatched it out I fell in love with ALL the colors in this. I do an amazing dramatic eye with all the colors in the palette... "Club" on lid, blended out to crease with the red, brow highlight with the white shimmer, inner corner with the gold, outer V with the black sparkle, and bottom inner lid with the silver. This creates the most beautiful eye you can't even look away from the mirror! The colors are highly pigmented and blend like a freaking dream, with my UDPP it's out of control. I am totally buying a back up of this, and I never buy backups! I think I may vacuum seal it and keep it in my freezer! I'm just going to stop myself now because I could probably write a novel about this palette. Run, do not walk... for real.

I searched all over my local Walmarts/Targets/Walgreens-es to find one of these after seeing the swatches, and finally I got my hands on one a few weeks ago. (I have started to see the other palettes appearing in clearance bins, so watch out and get them while you still can)
While I do like this palette, I find that some of the shades are tricky to wear, though they are all very pigmented and of high quality. The red baffles me, every time I try to wear it, I end up looking like I have pink eye. The silver is nice, but again, not sure how to wear it best. The palest white color makes a good highlighter. The infamous MAC Club dupe brown at the bottom is really pretty in the crease, but for some reason it pulls warm brown on me and doesn't show any of that interesting greenish glitter. The antique-y gold color might be my favorite, I like to wear it on the lid.
The glittery black surprised me the most - in the pan it kind of reminds me of Urban Decay's Creep that I got in my Naked Palette, but this WnW one is so much better! The one time I wore Creep (for a Halloween party, lol) it showed as black with large glitters in it and a crapload of fallout. I tried to re-create the look with the WnW shade and the glitters are much smaller and uniform, less chunky and more of an even shimmer. Sorry for the ramble but this really amused me, haha.
The included brush and sponge applicator are the usual crap, so I threw those away. The eyeliner is ok, more on the hard side. I kept it for now but might give it away or something.
I'll get regular wear out of the three left-hand shadows, which is more than enough to make me happy with this purchase.

This is a great value. The colors are vibrant and well pigmented. I bought this for the Club dup alone (bottom left) but I like the other colors as well. I was so lucky to find this after scoping out different places.

Let me just say now, I love this eye shadow palette.
The red was the main reason I bought it,
I use to wear red eyeshadow all the time but the company I bought it from shut down :/
These colors are very well pigmented and easy to blend.
The dup for MAC club is great, its alot like L'Oreal HIP's intrepid only not so shimmery and alittle more toned down,
The red is vibrant without being crazy.
The black with silver glitter is a true black and the glitters dont fall for me.
The antique gold is a great base color, it brighten my already usually emerald greenish hazel eyes.
The silver is very vibrant and I can understand why some people dont exactly love it, I personally adore it.
The white with silver glitter is a nice highlighter.
The colors blend nicely, are very vibrant, last a long time with proper primer and just are great for a holiday look

I was skeptical about buying this because I have so many shadows but I couldn't resist once I saw them IRL at Walgreens.
This palette is even better than the first set of color icon palettes that came out earlier this year. The quality is amazing for DS eyeshadow. They are so creamy and blend able and the shades rival MAC.
The e/s on the bottom left is an exact dupe for MAC Club! I own Club and this one is actually better. It is softer and creamier than Club. The silver shade on the top right is a dupe UD Uzi, but with less fallout and smaller glitter.
WnW is really coming out with some great items. I don't feel bad about this purchase at all. The palettes is only $4.99 plus tax and it comes with an eyeliner.
The colors are very pigmented. The Red is a little chalky and not as pigmented as the others, but still a nice shadow. The club dupe is awesome and the creamy ivory shade is quite unique. If you can get your hand on this buy it.
