I have been looking for the Wet n Wild spring palettes for weeks now without any luck. Imagine my surprise when I went into a Walgreens today across town and spotted these palettes, which are not only a brand new release, but palettes I’ve never seen or heard of yet! They don’t have specific names, just numbers, and they both come in a kit with a liquid eyeliner. I have no idea what collection these palettes belong to or if they are just a new release. Once I get more information, I will come back and fill it in here. In the meantime, enjoy my review and swatches of these two brand new Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Palettes!
Neither of these palettes have “names” like the other Wet n Wild palettes usually do, so I will be referring to them by the number that is on the back of them.
“34121” contains eight shades: three shimmer overcoats for the brow-bone, three pearl powders for the eyelid, and two matte definers for the eye line. Both of these palettes really are a medley of colors with no specific theme going on, but I actually like that! The sparkling teal blue is to die for, and is stunning in person. I even got the woman working the cash register to purchase herself one because of this teal shade!
The shimmer overcoat shades are actually really nice. They’re not meant to be overly pigmented, but rather act as a highlighter for your brow-bone, cheekbone, or even as a sparkling “topcoat” over your eyelid. There is a blue, beige, and a pink shimmer in this palette.
The pearl shades in this palette are AH-MAZING! That teal is insanely pigmented and I cannot wait to use it in a look. The copper shade was incredibly velvety smooth and pigmented, while the purple shade was a little less soft, but still pigmented.
The matte shades in this palette work well. Both are pigmented and buildable, which I like in a matte eyeshadow. These are perfect for working into the crease or to line your eyes with.
“34120” is the second palette I found, and follows the same shape and design as the other palette. It contains three shimmer overcoats, three pearl powders, and two matte shades. I like the variety of color, texture, and formula.
The shimmer overcoats in this palette are fantastic. I love the bright golden one to the left especially. It’d make a great “topcoat” over another eyeshadow to dab onto the center of your eyelid so the light catches it. The other two are a light pink and a grey shade.
The pearl shades in this palette were pigmented but less soft than a usual Wet n Wild eyeshadow. The champagne beige shade would be great for the inner corners of the eyes. The pink shade and the copper-burgundy shade are also pigmented, but again, were less velvety and needed two coats to put down nice, even color.
The matte shades in this palette are again perfection. You get a really versatile light brown matte shade that can literally be used for everything from your eye socket to contouring your nose. Both shades were pigmented and performed well.
Overall: Both of these palettes are typical Wet n Wild pigmentation, meaning they are great quality. Each palette has a variety of shades, textures, and finishes. I personally feel that “34121” performed slightly better than “34120” in the pigmentation department, but both are gorgeous. I can’t get enough Wet n Wild!
These Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Medley Palettes can be found in drugstores nationwide and retail for $4.99 USD each. As far as I know, there are only two available, as that is all I saw in the display. There was no attached collection name to these palettes, and neither of the palettes have a specific name. Once I find out more information on these, I will come back and add it in. I had no idea these even existed or were being released, as I found them randomly at a local Walgreens!
