I purchased a few Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencils as they are being repromoted with the new Enchanting Halloween Looks Wet n Wild Collection. I actually didn’t know about Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencils prior to seeing them in the display…I guess I never explored the Wet n Wild core collection because these passed me by for some reason.
I was quite happy to have snagged a few of the Fall shades though, two of the three I believe are limited edition, as I’m a fond fan of cream shadow especially ones in pencil format as they are easy for swipe and go looks!
Let’s take a look!
In theory, Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencils sound great! These are a shorter, chubby cream shadow stick you can use to line and shade with. The formula is divine on first swatch! Pigmented, creamy yet super slick so they glide across my drier lids without a hiccup! I find the color blends out beautifully and the slicker texture makes for easy, no tug application. The colors have excellent pigmentation as well and build very, very easily.
First off, oily lids turn back now! You’ll never survive 10 minutes with this formula. The formula never truly sets and remains quite emollient through the wear which basically translates to major creasing and fading within I’d say the first hour of wear and likely that will be shorter for oily lids.

I was so so so disappointed because truly the texture is fabulous and some of the shades are just delightful! Like Who Are You Wearing? is a delightful shimmery gold and Graphite is a very pretty smokey gray.
But sadly, where as the texture works fabulous during application it does not, unfortunately, wear well and creases as well as fades very rapidly which makes these little cream shadows a no go for me.
Anyone try ’em?
