Wet n Wild Coloricon 8 Eyeshadow Palettes

Here's my review on the Wet n Wild Coloricon 8 eyeshadow palettes. 

Hurry up and buy these. The end.

Okay you need more persuasion then here you go. 

I bought the 737 Blue Had Me At Hello and 738 Comfort Zone. These have been out since last year I think but they still have the "new" sticker on the side which is a little odd to me. But that's not the problem. The problem is it keeps running out at all my stores! 


Here is 737 Blue Had Me At Hello


I swatched the eye shadows from the left side first. They don't list any names for the specific color but they have it categorized. 

The brow bone is an interesting light silver frost, the eyelid is silver, the crease is dark blue, and the definer is a matte black. 

The pigmentation is fabulous for all of these 4 colors but as you can see below, the royal blue crease is incredibly dark. I wish the blue would stand out more but oh well.



I love playing with the right side of this palette. 

The brow bone is a gorgeous light blue frost which I haven't seen before, the eyelid is a very vivid teal, the crease is a true deep blue, and the definer is black with lots of sparkle. 

The only problem I had was with the sparkly definer at the bottom. It's chalky but one out of eight eye shadows is a pretty good ratio. 


Next up is probably my favorite palette. I would even say I like it more than high end brands like Urban Decay. Yeah I said it.


738 Comfort Zone 


These were incredibly soft for me and easy to blend. I adore every color on the left side and they coordinate so well with each other. 

The brow bone is a light shimmery gold, the eyelid looks almost like rose gold to me, the crease is a lovely light brown/almost taupe, and the definer is a true dark brown. 

These have wonderful payoff and great if you love a neutral everyday eye.



The brow bone is a stunning tan, the eyelid is a light green, the crease is a mix of both dark green and gold, and the definer is just amazing. 


The definer is a duo chrome mix of red, brown, and plum. It's really spectacular on it's own. 


So do you need this? Yes. 

I recommend using a primer for these eye shadows. The color is even better and they last all day.

They retail for $4.99 but it's 40% off right now at Rite Aid. 

What do you think of the Wet n Wild Coloricon 8 Eyeshadow Palettes? Do you own any of them?
