Just when I had written off Wet n Wild Cosmetics as a bust they release the new Wet n Wild Color Icon Collection….
Um hello wow!
Dude, so cool. So cheap.
You need it!
Wet n Wild ColorIcon is a collection of four limited edition baked eyeshadows and two bronzer blushes with an extra friendly price tag!
Head to your local drugstore and nail this collection particularly if you thought your Summer makeup regime was a bust because you had no money to splurge on makeup. The collection features four baked eyeshadows and two baked bronzer/blushes that are marked at $2.99 and $3.99….hello, you so can afford that little amount of cash!
The star of the show are the Wet N Wild ColorIcon Baked Bronzer which double up as an eyeshadow, highlighter, and blush. These are tiny little pots that cost $3.99 each and are pretty damn pigmented and pretty to look at (think MAC Mineralize Skinfinish but cheaper).

They come in two shades which are Sizzle and Scorch, I purchased both right away without thinking about it since the design was so cute and pretty darn stunning for something from Wet n Wild. Each bronzer is a marble swirl made up of colors like gold, bronze, and pink. Scorch is the deeper of the two and gives a peach warm finish with shades of red, coppery penny, and dusky rose. Sizzle is made the lighter of the two with a base of light bronze with a golden swirl. Each has a shimmery finish and plenty of pigmentation to back up the quality.
These have a fair bit of shimmer to them but you can easily blend it out to create a more subdued, warmer look. If they fail to work on your face you can load up a sponge applicator and go to work on your eye creating a really warm, bronze Summer look by doubling them up as an eyeshadow. Each pot is a little bit bigger than a MAC shadow so they travel really well.
Wet n Wild ColorIcon Baked Eyeshadows are just as sweet to look at. These are pigmented as well and have very nice color payoff for a baked shadow. The shadows come in a tiny pot a little smaller than a MAC shadow. I got two of the four colors which were Blaze (Fuchsia with black and bronze swirls) and Singe (Sage Green with Bronze and Hunter Greens swirls). They apply and blend very well.
I wasn’t too keen on any of the colors released in the shadows and actually forced myself to purchase the two I thought would be the most flattering. The collection would have been WAY better if they concentrated on some golds or bronzes rather than the greens, sky blue, and pink they had going on. The colors just failed to excite me and didn’t feel Summer-y at all but the presentation and quality of the shadow for the $3 price tag is incredible.
The pots of the bronzers are a little too small so it’s a little hard to get product out but a kabuki works well or tapping the side of a large blush brush into the pot works as well.
You do have to be extra careful with the bronzers as they are richly pigmented! A little goes a long way so use a light hand or it will look garish on cheeks.
- Anyone looking for super cheap Summer makeup that packs a pop!
- Anyone who likes baked makeup products!
- Anyone who loves MAC MSF.
- Anyone who isn’t keen on richly pigmented cosmetics (these products pack a whole lot of POP and are not subtle in any way).
- Anyone who has issues with smaller packaging (the pots are pretty tiny and prove a little difficult to work with when using larger brushes).
Count me shocked because really I haven’t come across TOO many products from Wet n Wild that are all that good but these are simply darling particularly the bronzers, these are definitely the star of the collection for me! I think this is a great purchase for anyone on a budget at the moment that wants to inject a little Summer color into their current regime.
