Wet 'N' Wild Color Icon palette

Overall Rating: 4
Price [Value]: 5
Packaging Quality: 3

I bought Lust and have been absolutely LOVING it! It's great for simple work looks AND for a smoky night look. All of the shades are gorgeous, but my favorite colors are probably the matte nude on the top left, the blue-gray metallic shade on the middle right, and the blackish purple with red sparkle on the bottom right. They're all AMAZINGLY pigmented and blend like a dream! Plus you can usually get these for about $5...totally worth every penny! The mattes ARE a wee bit chalky, but nothing too extreme, and they're crazy pigmented.

I think my main problem with these palettes is the color range. I feel like they need to come up with some more combinations, and definitely a neutral or cool-toned neutral palette (as Vanity is quite warm). Also, the packaging is pretty flimsy, but that's common with WnW.

I can't believe WnW has come up like this. This is definitely not your 70's or 80's WnW. I wore Lust palette today and absolutely loved it. I've been on a serious WnW kick lately. A few months ago I picked up the Vanity palette and about a month or 2 ago I picked up the Blue Had Me At Hello 8-palette. Last week Rite Aid had them BOGO free but the store I went to didn't quite have what I was looking for so I ended up just getting the Creme Eyeliner and the Liquid Eyeliner, both in black. Spent $4.35 for both. I was stoked! And I really, really like both of them. One of my local grocery stores has them on sale right now BOGO free so I picked up the Lust palette, Cool As A Cucumber e/s trio, 901B lipstick, and a purple eyeliner. There are a few more things I'm looking to get as soon as Walgreens has another sale.

You're bound to find at least a couple you'll like. Even though they're really cheap already, every Sunday I hound my local drugstore ads looking for a sale. LOL!

I've recently stopped wearing my Urban Decay Naked palette and use Vanity nearly every day. The colors are so much prettier on my eyes. With a little primer potion, they last and last and the darkest color works great as a liner. I also love Egyptian Sands (a trio from WnW which isn't Color Icon).

i gave in and finally got the naked palette and its such a huge let down.... for the past year I have had most wnw trios, depotted and stored in an inglot magnetic palette and honestly they are far better than UD naked. Far far better!

I have the Lust and the Vanity palette, and I love them both. The only disappointment for me was the middle purple on the left; it stains my skin red, applies unevenly, and fades. The rest are totally worth the low price. I tend to reach for them more than my MAC shadows.

I dont see all the hype in WnW they dont show up well without a primer
That's probably true. But many people, myself included, always wear an eyeshadow primer anyway. Wet n Wild shadows are very hit or miss, but the hits are pretty great. And because the price is so low, it's okay if there are some misses in a palette. In contrast, if there is even one miss in a MAC palette, it's unacceptable for the price point, in my opinion.
