So awhile back I read a review about a company that I had heard of but never purchased before. Sure you have seen Wet n Wild in the local cosmetics aisle in the far corner, and like me probably never tried them before because how well can a $3.00 lipstick work?
Well from the reviews I have read, pretty well actually. Chelle over at Makeup You Mind put up a post about how well the new Wet n Wild ColorIcon eyeshadow palettes worked. From the reading, I was hooked on the colors and really wanted to try them out.
Her review was posted December 6, 2018 and every time I looked I could never find them. They were slowly going into stores at the time of the writing but I did not see any since I had read it.
I heard stories trickling through twitter that people were starting to see these in their local stores, so the wife and I headed out Saturday morning and tried to find some. It took 3 stores before I found them, and I was able to pick up Comfort Zone and Not A Basic Peach.
It’s no secret that my wife does not share my love of makeup or shopping, but she was gracious enough to toss in some of her Air Miles to cover some of the cost of there new Palettes for me. THANKS, HON!!
I was drawn to the gold tones in Not A Basic Peach and the shimmery dark greens of Comfort Zone. Of course, I have already been scouring the net looking for some looks to use these with when I finally get the time. If these turn out well I am also interested in trying some of the Wet N Wild lipstick and PhotoFocus Foundation.
The price point on these is great, at $7.39 each they will not break the bank. For a similar style of palette from CoverGirl I paid at least $13.00 so you can see how these are the better deal. They do not come with the little sponge applicators but with the money you will save you are better to go and buy some decent brushes.
Hopefully, I can get the chance to use these soon and report back at how they work for me.
Thanks for reading
