NEW wet n wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Singles Swatches and Reviews



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.

$1.99 each





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?

I love these eye shadows! They have been on sale for a few weeks at my local Walgreens and I picked up the blue shade. It is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait until I have the opportunity to wear it. Thanks for sharing.

Everytime you post something like this I have this very strong urrrge to go buy. They look fabulous, and for the price! Amazing!

Gabby said...

Love the colors so bright n vibrant. They should have like a pallet where you can pop them in so you don't have all these little pots filling up the drawers. WetnWild is definitely making some great products my money can go so much farther then those crazy mall prices.

littlesquirrels said...

hmm i found the display and there was only 5 colors... =/ what about the other 3? will they be on the normal wNw area in Feb ?

Wet N' Wild has answered my prayers! I always have been saying that they *need* to come out with a wider array of single shades in vibrant colors, and now they finally have! horay! I need to get my hands on that cobalt shimmery blue and matte black for sure, you better believe I'll do a kick*ss smokey eye with those.

Nicole said...

They have such good color payoff for such cheap eyeshadows!

Sarah S. said...

I saw these in-store already but I had to resist buying them all because the hubs was with me and he was like " do you really need all of them? " well of course YES I DO, but I was good and picked out the pink, Sellout. It's perfection, just as you say!

I BLEED PINK said...

I didn't see all these colors, but they are so pretty. I need the purple and gold in my life.

Janna said...

WnW is seriously the BEST...! I wish it were more readily available in stores and not so hard to find...:) great review!

PlusSizeBarbieDoll said...

I was wondering was the sellout (pink) similar to the pink in the spoiled brat Trio. I am not sure which season the spoiled brat was in, but it is still in stores.
Thanks for the review.

Sd said...

33790 Sellout (fuchsia shimmer)
33791 Stagedive (blue shimmer)

So looks like I'm hungting for Unplugged, Panther, Glamrock now. lol What stores should these be at? Walgreens or RiteAid?

Zadidoll said...

BTW - I've got members on MakeupTalk who saw these and were wondering if you used a primer underneath the shadows and if so which one?

A Brilliant Brunette said...

So glad you're all loving the colors!

To answer a few questions...the eyeshadows will be found everywhere that sells wet n wild. These are part of their 2012 permanent collection. So, if you can't find them right now, no worries because they'll be out eventually. It always depends on each individual store.

@Zazidoll...the swatches were on bare skin! :)

Chanel Nicole said...
