I of course like the rest of you was caught up in the hype of the new seemingly hard to find new Wet N Wild Beauty Color Icon Holiday Palettes. I found mine at Walgreens for $4.99. When viewing the pictures online the Night Elf palette was the one I was most excited about due to the gorgeous red shade the palette offered.
I did two looks with this palette to show those that are frightended by the red that there are two sides to this fabulous palette. The left side has beautiful colors that blend nicely to create a warm brown smokey look while the right side of the palette offers a completly different bolder color selection as seen below.
I really am impressed with these shadows as I am the other Color Icon palettes that Wet N Wild has produced. The shadows are buttery soft and easy to blend. I used MAC Painterly as a base to hold the shadows and I had no problem with the colors moving or creasing. In the red fotd above I did use MAC Flamable paint to intensify the red shadow however.
The Night Elf Wet N Wild Holiday Palette is swatched above. In the picture the shadows look really shimmery becasue of the way the light is catching the colors. But on the eye they are not at this way. I wanted to show you this picture so you could see the reflections in the shadows. For example the brown with the green reflects resembling MAC Club eyeshadow and many others.
I only picked up 2 out of the 4 palettes, the other being Snow Sprite. The other two palettes werent orginal enough for me and resembled the palettes that were already in the regular line ( in my opinion)
What do you think of the Holiday Palettes?
