Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette in Going in the Wild is one of two limited edition palettes that were introduced recently for Spring. I know they’ve proved a little difficult to find and hope to hear you’ve had success locating them. Each one contains six shades for $4.99 each.
I located both of mine at Harmons but the display was pretty much wiped out really quickly. I’m hearing some folks had success at CVS so good luck finding them everyone and when all else fails Evil-bay is your friend for hardcore lemmings.
Going in the Wild is actually the more mismatched and challenging of the two palettes to wear or at least for me. The colors seem kinda odd for some reason and I had issues with them blending into a muddy mess. If anything at all I’d go with the Nude Awakening Palette as that has a nice range of nude colors that work together easily.
I admit Going in the Wild had me scratching my head.
On the up side these are some of the nicest ColorIcon 8 Pan Palettes I’ve tried. They don’t have a terribly frosty finish and lack the shimmer that prior ones have had. The colors are super smooth, heavily pigmented, easy to apply, and have a soft, silky texture. The liner shades do have chunkier glitter but aside from that I didn’t wrong into major frost which is something I’ve had to contend with in the past with these.
One side of the palette features a lilac shade but they recommend this pastel for the crease with a mauve for the lid. This is the side I used for my look below. I must admit the lighter pastel of the lilac was drown out my the mauve on my lid. I either lack the skill to apply these correctly or I’m correct in saying they just blend together like mud! Eep! The right hand side of the palette is no better as this as a mint eyelid shade and a khaki taupe for the crease….this is a better combo and is workable but again I had issues blending out and the colors just didn’t want to contrast together well. Perhaps I just don’t do pastels well.
On the upside they do have a nice formula and work great individually I just feel they are a bit mismatched when used together and the blending is sometimes harsh.
If you’re a frequent user and master of pastels I imagine you’ll do just fine with this palette as for me I think I’ll stick with the safe nudes and naturals located in the other palette! That’s more my speed 🙂
Anyone own this?
I’d love to hear what sort of looks you created using it!
