Budget friendly beauty shoppers gather round. You’re going wanna take a look at this new Wet n Wild ColorIcon Limited Edition Holiday Palette.
As you know from my prior post Wet n Wild is releasing four limited edition ColorIcon Palettes for $4.99 each that include an Eye Palette and an Eyeliner. Happy Days! Cheap makeup.
The good news is they ROCK. These are wicked awesome and even snobby high end lovers will adore ’em. Trust me I’m a snob. The bad news is they are proving a tad difficult to get a handle on. I’ve been stalking the entire New York State drugstore scene and have yet to come across them in store however it is pretty early so give it time and it might just pop up at your local drugstore shortly. I’ll, of course, keep my eyes peeled and let you know which drugstores get ’em.
But for now wanna take a look at the Golden Goddess Palette?
It’s my fav!
A limited edition palette featuring six Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadows plus a matching ColorIcon Eyeliner Pencil!
First off, let me tell you, packaging is great. These come tucked in a slim line black palette. I know at the price of $4.99 you might be a bit wary that you’ll be forgoing decent packaging and formula but you’re not. The compact is slim, very basic, and easy on the eyes. Granted, it’s not cute or pretty but it’s not shabby or cheap either. It’s functional, stores easily, and travels well. The palette comes with one sponge tip applicator and one brush applicator. These aren’t going to do you any favors in dramatic eye look application but they work well to create a quick look on the fly however for more advanced looks I’d go with your normal stash of brushes.
The colors included are rich bronze shades most of which have a shimmery formula. The texture of the shadows is superb and honestly if you slapped a high name on this palette you’d be raving it hard. They have a velvety smooth formula that apply dreamy and blend easily with great color pay off. The shadow formula is fantastic to say the very least and wears well without fading or creasing. They stay fresh and vibrant all day.
The six shades included can create any number of looks by combining, contrasting, or wearing one at a time. Shades range from a creamy nude to several graduating bronze shades. All vivid, golden shades that are ideal for Fall, Summer, or a different Holiday look if you’re not wanting to go the more traditional look for the season.
The eyeliner included is a sparkle bronze color which applies decently with good pigmentation and smudges quite well.
Sadly the eyeliner doesn’t work well on the waterline and it applies with a bit of tugging but it does smudge nicely and has very good pigmentation so I can easily disregard the bad and embrace the good hear plus it’s just a nice little freebie extra with the already awesome palette you get!
- Anyone who likes rich, golden shades of color!
- Anyone who enjoys good quality drugstore makeup (this is the top of the line).
- Anyone who wants a cheap, inexpensive shadow palette with warmer shades of color!
- Medium, dark, or tan tones will love how these shades compliment their skin.
- Brown eyed girls you need it, ’nuff said (compliments my big brown eyes beautifully!)
- Makeup snobs (but I beg you please try it before you knock it! You’ll be surprised how fab it is).
I’m deeply impressed with this palette and I’m greedy to get my hands on the other palettes in the collection! At $4.99 this is the most affordable Holiday Palette you’ll get your hands on this season and one of the best as well. The quality of the shadows is brilliant at this price and I’m very happy to have had the chance to try this and add it to my own stash.
Do you need it?
Start stalking your drugstores girls!
