Fergie's Photo-Op Eyeshadow in Desert Festival...Review, Swatches and Photos

Hey guys, I'm back with another Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection review. I've been playing with the entire collection and I just can't get over how awesome it is. I'm rockin to some Fergie and Black Eyed Peas at this very moment to get me in the Fergalicious mood as I blog lol! I'm going to do a series of the Op-Eyeshadow palettes, which I'm totally in love with and I know you will too. Gorgeous palettes with amazing, pigmented colors with a super affordable price tag. Gaaaahhh!!! Read on for more...


For this post, I'm going to review Desert Festival. It's the first palette I played with. It consist of warm oranges and browns with shimmery to matte finishes that's perfect for either Fall or Summer. It reminds me of the MAC Spiced Chocolate Quad from 2008 without the chestnut color. I think it's a pretty good dupe.

Wet n Wild claims, "This palette of intensely-pigmented shadows comes in a range of textures from translucent highlights to subtle mattes to shimmering glitters-all of which the camera loves. It's satiny-smooth formula is nylon-treated and jet-milled for ultra-pigmented crease-resistant color that lasts all day. Be one of the glamorous, ohh flossy!"

What I like:
  • Colors. The colors compliment each other very well and you can create numerous eye looks with it. 
  • Finishes. I love how it's a mix of shimmery and mattes. You can create a well balanced eye look.
  • Texture/Formula. Really smooth, soft and easy to blend. 
  • Packaging. Very pretty and chic palette. It's compact so it would be great to bring for travelling. It fits nicely in my makeup bag.
  • Longevity. With a good primer underneath, the colors stays put for a long time.
  • Price. You can't go wring with $6!!! Super affordable.

What I don't like:
  • The shimmery light champagne is too translucent/sheer for my liking. It's difficult to pick up with a brush. I suggest using your finger or the sponge tip applicator that it comes with to get the maximum color pay off.

I love the sleek and chic packaging. Very compact and great for travelling.

  1. Shimmery Champagne Pink- It's a gorgeous color in the pan, but it's too sheer for my liking.. I had to dip my brush really hard to pick up the color and it's not too noticeable on the eyes. I suggest using a color base underneath to make the color show.
  2. Matte Burnt Orange- My absolute favorite color in the palette. A true burnt orange with no shimmers or iridescent. Reminds me of the burnt orange color in the sunset. Absolutely beautiful. It's a great all over the lid color or blending/transition color on the crease.
  3. Shimmery Dark Brown- Super pigmented and smooth. The shimmer disappear when you brush or swipe the color. Instead, apply the color in patting motion to make the shimmer visible.
  4. Shimmery Champagne Peach- A little sheer, but still visible. I love the peach sheen in it. SO gorgeous. I suggest to use a color base underneath to make the color stand out. 
  5. Matte Brown- Straight up brown with no shimmer and iridescent. Super pigmented and easy to apply and blend. Great for adding definition on the crease, lower lash line, liner (apply it wet) as well as filling in the eye brows. I love this!


Here's what it looks like on my eye. Aren't the colors just gorgeous?
I used the Wet n Wild On Edge creme liner in Little Black Dress.




Overall, it's a great eyeshadow palette with beautiful and pigmented colors. I highly recommend it to anyone.

  4. I love how you used the colors, they work so nice on your tan skin! The swatches dont seem that pigmented but how you used them made it work well.

  5. When I have seen this palette on other blogs and youtube, I didn't know if I liked it, but on you it looks beautiful! It makes me want to go run out and buy it! xD I don't know if it would look good on me. I'm tempted to go and buy all of the quads because I have a weird obsession with wet 'n wild palettes.
