New Products from Wet n’ Wild came out this week! It’s their new spring 2014 collection and I bought all of them!
Like most of their existing collection, Wet n’ Wild 4 out of 5 are monochromatic which i find infuriating. I don’t see why they can’t more dynamic palettes but whatever – they only cost $3.99. Almost all of the colors are fairly pigmented except for the lighter colored ones.
This palette is my favorite. It has the most varity in all the palettes. And even though I would not be able to use all these colors in one eye look they do offer a nice pop of color to any eye look. My personal fav is the orange color!!!
Though this palette is very pretty the only stand out colors is the crease color which is a blue/purple with pink shimmer and “browbone” light lilac shimmer. The other are pretty but run of the mill pink and purples.
This is a GREAT every day palette. I would recommend this to any beginner makeup dabbler because it allows you to create several looks with this one palette. I like how there are warm and cool browns in the palette.
Though I like the idea of this palette the colors are too harsh for an eye look. I would use the black to deep up the crease or the silvers to highlight the inner corners. Other than that, I would just use this palette alone to create a smokey eye for my muddy brown eyes.
I kind of secretly love/hate this palette – well I guess not secretly anymore. The blues look really great with my brown eyes and I do love the matte cobalt blue in the palette but it’s just soooooooooo BLUE. Like I said in previous statement, I wouldn’t be able to use this palette alone to create an appealing look.
My final thoughts: The spring 2014 collection is great in it’s own ways but definitely has some flaws. I am sick and tired of these monochromatic palettes. I would love a palette from them that has more variety. For the price point of $3.99, the color pay off is AMAZING!
