Wet n Wild Fergie Jet-Set Makeup Palette Review/Swatches

 photo IMG_0200_zps63dba58d.jpg

Wet n Wild Fergie's Jet-Set makeu Palette $30. "Wet n Wild presents the LIMITED EDITION FERGIE'S JET-SET MAKEUP PALETTE, curated by the Duchess herself! The Set: The dazzling collection includes a makeup essential created conveniently in one-place" (taken from the packaging)

In case you didn't know, I'm a sucker for makeup palettes. I love seeing different colors of makeup in one cute palette or any kind of packaging. So, when I learned about Wet n Wild Fergie Jet-Set makeup palette, I couldn't contain myself with excitement! It contains everything you need to create a complete makeup look (except for concealer and foundation). It has 132 shades for eyes, lips and face in one cute, black box. It's available exclusively at your local Walgreens for $30 along with the rest of the Fergie Holiday limited edition collection.

Read on for my review...

The packaging is quite impressive. Usually, big makeup palettes from the drugstore are flimsy and light. But not this one. It's very heavy and solid. It opens up like a book and you simply slide out the different levels. First you see eye shadows, then lip colors, blushers, eye liners and bronzer and highlighters. It also closes magnetically, so the case stays in place.

Here's how it looks on my vanity table/drawer so you can see how big and wide it gets. It's awesome isn't it?

 36 eye shadows

I love the variety of colors from neutrals, colorful and darks. The possibilities are endless! Surprisingly, the quality of these eye shadows are quite impressive. They have decent to great pigmentation depending on the finish. I notice the shimmery ones are  more smooth and has better color pay off than the matte ones. A good eye shadow base/primer is definitely needed to kick up the vibrancy up a notch. Also, they are a bit powdery, which is understandable with drugstore makeup palettes, so make sure you don't dip your brush too hard.

Here is a Fall/Thanksgiving makeup look I did using the eye shadows. See more photos HERE.

This palette has the most gorgeous silver and grey eye shadows I've ever seen!

Some of the eye shadow colors has a duo chrome quality to them which means the color changes depending on the angle of the light. That's unusual for a drugstore palette, especially big ones.

6 Blushes

All the blushes has some kind of shimmer or glitter(gold and silver), but don't be intimidated. The shimmers are not too noticeable when applied on the cheeks. The texture is not too powdery. I also like that they're all different shades of pink which I think looks great on all skin tones. My favorite is the pink/berry tone blush all the way to the right.

2 eye liner pencils and 1 lip liner

I like the red lip liner more than the 2 eye liner pencils. It's a rich red color that glides on the lips smoothly and actually stays on. The eye liners are just okay. They apply smooth and doesn't tug on the eyes, but they don't last long at all.

2 Face Powders and 1 Bronzer

The powders are quite nice. The texture is smooth and actually blends well. I have medium/tan skin tone and it's too light on me, so I could use it as a highlight powder to apply om my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. I just have to make sure I don't put too much. I like the bronzer a lot. It has soft gold sheen that looks really nice on the skin. Can be use as a contour, but I'd rather brush it on the side of my face in an "E" motion to add a nice glow to the face.

The lip colors and lip glosses are my least favorite in the palette. The colors are so beautiful, but they don't have a great color pay off. They are also very sticky and uncomfortable. I don't like them at all.  

Overall, I like this palette and would recommend it to a friend. The concept and the look is great. The highlights are the most definitely the eye shadows, blushes and bronzer. They are awesome! You get a variety of colors and finishes with great pigmentation. The eye liners and lip colors are a miss, which is a bummer since it's a whole section of them. However, for the price of $30, it's still a great product. You might even snag it for a lower price if you catch it on a sale or if you have a coupon.

  1. I think palettes like these are cute, great for younger girls who want lots of shadows to play around with or to experiment with. However even higher end brands with big sets like this I completely avoid because I don't like having such a huge range, I prefer smaller palettes!

  2. I agree with Sharlynn's comment above. Personally, I, too, avoid using such palettes. Although, the colors in them scream "buy-me" but I'd only give them as gifts to younger girls

  3. I was tempted by this, but I decided to pass. As cute as the packaging is, and as pretty as the shadows are, I have so many already and I was just not interested in those lip colors. Pretty swatches though!

  4. i was wondering if you could do a Christmas look and give tips on what colors are to vibrant and what colors aren't enough

  5. The colors look gorgeous. Too bad I'm trying not to hoard as much makeup lol
