Wet n Wild Color Icon 8 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Petal Plusher

Wet n Wild Color Icon 8 pan Eyeshadow palette in Petal Plusher is what I'm loving at the moment. I've said it before that I have thing for purples and this palette fulfills my purple eyeshadow cravings. It has 8 cool shades of purples, bluish-purples, plums and pinks with shimmery finish. All the colors are beautiful, pigmented and very easy to blend.

Wet n Wild says, (taken from their website)
"Eight dynamic, perfectly color-coordinated shades with high pigment and pearl for ultra-impact color. Shades can be used together or individually to create an endless variety of looks."

What I like:
  • The colors. Usually I prefer warm eyeshadows because those look best with my medium/tan skin tone, but the cool colors in this palette still looks great on me. 
  • The shimmers in each shadow are not too over powering. 
  • Labels are embossed on the shadows. It makes it easier for beginners to apply the shadows on the eyes. But of course you can mix and match and place the colors where ever you prefer. Just don't apply black on the brow bone lol.
  • It has a good black and dark plum shadow. They have some silver flecks on the swatches, but they're not visible once it's on your eyes, which makes them great for defining and contouring the eyes. 
  • Texture. It's soft and silky and easy to apply.
  • They last a long time under a good primer.
  • Easy to blend. It was very easy to blend one color to another for a smooth transition.
  • It has less fallouts.
  • Very affordable. It's only $4.99!!!
What I don't like:
  • The packaging. It's not sturdy, so be careful and don't drop or else it will break.
  • The highlight color on the upper left side is a bit chalky. It requires a bit of blending to get a decent payoff.

It comes with a double ended  and angled bush. I don't use it.
