The requests for budget beauty just keep pouring in, and so I have to share with you an inexpensive, drugstore find that has smooth, rich pigment, and wears for hours on your eyelids. Wet n Wild Color Icon Palettes contain six shades of eyeshadow, three matte, and three with shimmer effects to them, all for under $5. I originally dismissed these palettes in the drugstore until I finally caved in and purchased one and realized how insanely full of color they are. Of course, I then went out and bought an additional palette, so above are “Vanity,” which is on the left, and “Pride,” which is on the right. To see more photographs and swatches,
Pride contains six eyeshadows, with three of them being matte, and three of them containing shimmer. This palette caught my eye because instead of just the usual blue or green, we see a mix of both blues and greens in this kit. It also comes with a matte white, and a shimmer white, for highlighting and working as a base, or in the inner corners of your eyes.
Is that color payoff not completely impressive for a palette that costs under $5? Not only are the shades intense and beautiful, but with an eyeshadow primer, these shades will last all day long on your eyes.
Vanity is a neutral palette in the Color Icon Collection that contains six neutral eyeshadow shades. Again, three are matte, and three are shimmer, with the first two being a matte beige and a shimmer beige. This palette contains some fantastic shades for natural beauty lovers, and is a great option for the upcoming fall season. The shimmers in the palette are absolutely drool-worthy.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Palettes are available in four kits: Vanity, Pride, Lust, and Greed. Lust contains grays, purples, and beiges, whereas Greed contains classic smokey eye shades such as beiges, whites, silvers and blacks. These palettes retail for $4.99 each and can be purchased at Walmart, Target, Ulta, and drugstores nationwide.
