Wet n Wild Sparke ‘Til Morning ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Wet n Wild Sparke Til Morning ColorIcon Eyeshadow

Wet n Wild recently released three limited edition ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palettes for Holiday 2012. The only one that caught my eye was the Sparkle ‘Til Morning variation as it contained a good deal of nude, natural shades with a small pop of color here and there.

Here’s a look at it!

The ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palettes contain eight shades each for $4.99 and resemble the ColorIcon Eyeshadow Trios in formula and style. The palettes are slim enough to store easily in a simple black compact, they kinda resemble two of the Trio’s glued together.

Each shadow has the imprint of what it is used for, brow bone, lid, crease, and define. Although after a few uses these imprints will disappear however, there are instructions for use in the back of the compact should that happen.

I think the formula deserves a rave and a rant. These are very pigmented with a velvety smooth texture much like the finish you’d get from a Stila Eyeshadow (just a hell of a lot cheaper). They pack an intense finish with full color pay off however, a good primer is required for the best wear since color fades and creases without something solid to adhere too.

The left side of the palette is what I deem the fun side. It has a creamy yellow highlighter, a copper crease shade, a light tan lid color, and a fun aqua for defining. The right side is the more serious natural selection. This side features a pink beige highlighter, a bronze-y copper lid color, a true brown crease shade, and a dark, chocolate shade to define with. I feel like the right side has colors that are easily duped from other palettes like Comfort Zone and a few of the original trios. That’s what takes away from some of the uniqueness that is Sparkle ‘Til Morning and has me questioning whether you absolutely need it.

You have to practice real caution with these palettes as I always feel like things get really frosty and shimmery, really quickly. There’s a good deal of fall out as well during application. I feel like the shadows tend to look over done sometimes since I have a heavier hand. They are quite powdery too and kick up a good deal of shadow when a brush is applied. I tend to migrate toward sponge applicators for application and blend out using a brush. This lessens the fall out and also creates a softer look sans the amount of frost I seem to get when using a brush.

Overall, the palettes are an excellent deal with a nice formula no doubt. However, application takes a little TLC and patience to avoid the shadow looking too overly done. I also feel like the shades in Sparkle ‘Til Morning might be easy to dupe so check your other Wet n Wild Palettes prior to indulging as there may be a repeat or two here.

    i actually love the palette but i agree with you it s not very unique just that the natural eyeshadow whores inside of us see it as a necessity and of course for the price tag we tell ourselves “you can never have to many natural eyeshadow palettes” irrational addict thoughts lol love ya Muse


    • 10/10/12 11:37 the Muse:

      LOL Claudia, you took the words out of my mouth, exactly. I like it a lot too, but sometimes I feel like these coloricon palettes are a tad too frosty but overall such a great price and fantastic pigmentation ;D! and yes, the nude addict in me says you must own this!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • 10/10/12 13:08 Kiss & Make-up:

    I don’t like the colors, it just looks like a weird combination to me… But hey, for 4,99… :-)


  • 10/10/12 15:04 Marina:

    I’ll be picking a few up if I am able to find them around here. Our Walgreens and CVS stores in my town get little-to-no new limited edition items. I JUST found a few of the new Color Tattoos.
    I love these palettes though. The trios rock as well. These shadows last 12+ hours on me with my primer, the best wear I’ve really ever gotten. The only shadows I really trust for a long work day :)


  • 10/10/12 15:15 Kim:

    I think I will skip this since I have the Comfort Zone palette. I like it though.


    • 10/28/12 12:37 Branny43:

      Had to chime in! :) I used to own Comfort Zone and it was waaaay too frosty for me. The Sparkle ‘Til Morning is much less frosty and, I think, more wearable. Just a thought!


  • 10/10/12 18:23 Alexis:

    I feel like I could pass on this, as I already own Comfort Zone as well as the Urban Decay Get Baked palette…seems like I could come up with really similar looks. That being said, I bet I’ll change my tune if I see it in person!


  • 10/11/12 0:45 Tiffany Martin:

    I like these, and what an awesome price. Wet n wild has become so good for their price.


  • 10/11/12 0:52 Ruthless:

    Oh I like this. If I see it, I’ll get it.


  • 10/11/12 4:00 Rhonda:

    I have a few of the wet n wild shadows. i like them.


  • 10/11/12 9:23 JenJ:

    The blue shadow is throwing me off but I love the rest. If I see it I will get it :)


  • 10/11/12 9:44 Laura:

    Eh, I think I’ll be passing on these new 8-pan palettes. This one especially looks too warm for me.


  • 10/11/12 14:33 Ellen:

    The left side of the palette looks like a dupe for a very expensive Estee Lauder palette that I own. They did a good job with the dupes
