Wet n Wild Zodiac Color Icon Eyeshadow ($4.69) in Fire is one of four limited edition eyeshadows that Wet n Wild released with their Zodiac Makeup Collection exclusively at Walmart. I picked up Fire and Earth which I recently reviewed! If you haven’t already do take a look at that review as I had some fun creating the look for that post.
I ended up ordering my some of the collection from Wet n Wild’s website as I have yet to see any of this collection at Walmart (although it is available at walmart.com). This is an opening for me to rant about the fact that exclusive drugstore collections suck. I feel like I’m running all over the damn place to locate these collections lately. The new Fire Dragon vs Ice Dragon is apparently exclusive to Walgreens and Ulta but I located at Harmons which leads me to believe at some point the Zodiac Collection will have a wider launch as well but as of now you have to haul ass to Walmart to get it. When did makeup become so damn complicated?
Wet n Wild Fire Color Icon Eyeshadow ($4.99) arrives in a circular compact that holds 0.21 oz of eyeshadow with six shade pressed into a single compact. I was a little concerned it would be difficult to use the shades given they are all housed together in one tiny space but I had no problems reaching into the shades I wanted without making a mess!
This palette is inspired by the Fire element with shades fiery shades of red, cranberry, orange, brassy gold, cream, and brown. It’s a really stunning selection of Summery shades! The shades pair up really well together and I was able to create a pretty contrasting look using them!
Unlike Earth these shades swatched quite nicely without as much glitter or dustiness but the formula was a little drier which disappointed me. None the less they were still very easy to apply and blend out with no fall out issues.
Where to buy
Wet n Wild Earth Color Icon Eyeshadow is one of four shades that launched with Wet n Wild’s new Zodiac Collection for Fall 2018. The palette contains 0.21 oz of eyeshadow and will set you back $4.99 for six shades. I thought the eyeshadows swatched very poorly on my arm and felt dry and appeared to dusk away easily but the application was a lot smoother with plenty of pigment and a good deal of lovely glitter although there was a good deal of fall out to deal with.
- Lovely shades that all work well together.
- Beautiful fiery shades for creating a really pretty Summer eye look!
- Swatches a well but shadows are a bit drier and need a little TLC during application such as good primer or a sponge-tipped eyeshadow applicator for application.
- Available on Wet n Wild’s site only at the moment as it sold out at Walmart (apparently it is a Walmart exclusive collection).
I think anyone who loves a fiery eyeshadow look will get on rather well with the Wet n Wild Fire Color Icon Eyeshadow. It’s a nice pick if you simply don’t have the money to splurge on palettes like Urban Decay Naked Heat!
