Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette: Lust

Can ya'll tell that I love Wet n' Wild (WnW) Color Icon Palettes??? LOL!!! So, yes my dear readers, here I am with another WnW Color Icon Palette review!!! 

Now, I know that WnW is coming out with a whole new range of Color Icon Palettes, so I realized that I better get some of my reviews up for the "old" ones from 2010! I was able to pick up most of these on a major 50% off sale at Walgreen's before they cleared them out. I am really, really looking forward to the new releases! The formula of the shadows is apparently "better" than these color icon palettes, but I tell ya the formulation is already great, so I am expecting great things!

Okay, I digress...back to my review!!! :) 

Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette in Lust

What a super gorgeous palette!!! This has quickly become one of my faves!!! Not only have I discovered that I love WnW Color Icon Palettes lately, but also that I love wearing purple shadows!!! With my cool coloring Purples are surprisingly neutral and wearable! Plus, my chameleon like grey/blue eyes even look a little greenish with these shadows on, which is kinda cool! 

Here are some high points about this great palette: (keep reading after the jump!)

  • Like all WnW Color Icon Palettes, you are getting an amazing value for $4.99 (or $2.50 on sale)!!!
  • The shadows themselves are great quality! Very pigmented (see swatches below: just two swipes with a q-tip on unprimed skin). Holy pigmentation!!! 
  • This palette contains a mix of matte, shimmer/satin, and glitter shadows. Love the variety here. IMHO, I feel that WnW has really mastered the "matte" shadow as they have such a lovely texture without being chalky. 
  • I love the "buttery" texture of these. They apply so easily and blend extremely well.
  • The shimmery vanilla shade is a pretty close dupe to MAC's Vanilla. Such an easy-to-wear shade.
  • My fav color combo from this palette: Vanilla shade in inner corner and on brow bone, matte light purplish pink on lid, and a mixture of the grey and matte medium purple on crease (try this!!! These colors are gorgeous mixed together!!!), and the sparkling eggplant purple shade as a liner. Just so pretty!!! 
  • I don't know how much longer these will be available with the new palettes coming out. So, I highly recommend picking up this Vanity palette if you see it! You won't be disappointed!!!

If you haven't guessed already, lol, I totally love this palette!!! I hope you enjoyed reading!!!

Omg I love this palette too! So does my mom :) I gave it to her for her birthday and she wears it almost daily now! I have very light greyish blue eyes also and I love the way this looks on my eye color.

I am in LOVE with this palette! I've used it so many times since I picked it up back in the fall. The pigmentation is amazing. I wasn't much of a purple shadow wearer until I picked up this color icon palette and I've since been converted. The looks you can create with this are amazing!

@AffordableBeauty-Hey Ashley!!! Yes, isn't this palette the best! Great for girls with our coloring and eye color! :)

@Nikosmommy-Totally agreed! Such wearable purples! I really had no idea how much daily use this palette would get when I got it! Can't wait to see what WnW comes out with next!!!

@Allison-I am excited for the new ones too!!!
