My love and adoration for wet n wild eyeshadows should be fairly apparent by now. I love them...that's it. But, as with all brands, eyeshadows vary so instead of a general review, I'll be sharing my thoughts on each particular color.
**Part of wet n wild's 2012 Cosmetic Collection, these beautiful new eyeshadow singles will be available in February.
Left to right:
Unplugged, Platinum, Trashed, Panther, Sellout, Glamrock, Stagedive, Golddigger
Color Details and Thoughts:
Unplugged: a metallic bright white with a touch of sparkle. It's a lot like MAC Crystal Avalanche. I'm not a white eyeshadow kinda girl but if you are, this is an awesome, pigmented, AND affordable option.
Platinum: a metallic silver with a touch of sparkle. I want to say it's similar to MAC Silver Ring eyeshadow but I don't have that one to do a swatch comparison.This would be gorgeous for a smokey eye!
Trashed: a satin finish black with a slight sheen and silver sparkle that actually sticks during application and blending. O...M...G...okay I know it's just a sparkly black but it's a total must-have. Super dark, sparkly....I love this one.
Panther: an incredibly deep true matte black. Again...a must-have. I'll do some swatch comparisons but this is THE darkest black eyeshadow that I own. Absolutely amazing.
Sellout: a slightly shimmery bright, but wearable, pink with a touch of sparkle. Being a lover of pink eyeshadow, I'm thrilled with this color. Bright but not overdone. Sparkly but not glittery. It's perfection in my eyes.
Glamrock: a shimmery blue-tones purple. While it's beautiful, this one honestly isn't my favorite of the bunch. It's not as pigmented as I'd like it to be. It's a bit on the sheer side which you may be able to tell from the swatch picture. However sheerness and softer eye looks are your thing, you'll love this. For me though, I'll likely be using this over a purple base to bring out the color a bit more.
Stagedive: a slightly metallic bright blue with traces of sparkle. *ahem* This is my favorite eyeshadow of the bunch and of the moment. MAC addicts or those of us who are reformed may remember an eyeshadow called Blue Storm from some collection a while back. Which collection? I have no clue...but it was my first MAC eyeshadow and to this day it's still my favorite. I barely use it in fear of running out. Stagedive is so similar to Blue Storm...I'm totally thrilled. If you're not familiar with Blue Storm, just know that this eyeshadow is a must-have for blue eyeshadow lovers.
Golddigger: a shimmery yellow gold with gold sparkle. This eyeshadow is stunning. I believe it's similar to MAC Goldmine but a bit brighter. It would be gorgeous for a smokey eye and can easily go bright as well. Though I love Stagedive, I'll likely wear this one the most often.
Now tell me...which will you be trying? Or have you already? What are your thoughts?
