I had placed, and removed, these adorable little eyeshadow palettes in my online cart at least 10 times. So you can imagine my excitement when I finally saw them available in-store. With a little self-control, alright, a lot of self-control, I only grabbed the ones I truly thought I would wear. Believe me when I say that I wanted to snatch up every-single-one!
Are these color combos gorgeous or what? Obviously, Wet-N-Wild knows what they’re doing. The shades go together quite nicely and take all the guesswork out of pairing colors to create an eye look. Personally, I am afraid of color on my lids, so these have helped me mix it up a bit. I also like that each palette contains a matte, shimmer and/or duo chrome shade. You get a little of everything to play around with-which makes it more fun!
I couldn’t pass up Petalette (the purple hues were calling my name). Honestly, purple is one of my favorite colors, but I NEVER wear it on my eyelids. I can easily wear the eyelid color and transition shade from Petalette without feeling intimidated or like it’s “too much”. I love to rock a neutral eye, so Silent Treatment is my jam. That eyelid shade is what my dreams are made of. A creamy, shimmery taupe that looks good year round. If anything, buy this palette just for that shade (I would). I love the versatility of Silent Treatment as well. It can go from day to night by simply adding the crease shade for more drama. Now, let’s get to Sweet as Candy. I gravitated towards this little guy because of the beautiful pink and chocolaty brown shades. Match made in heaven. The pink gives this simple little quad a feminine feel that is perfect for spring and summer.

The shades do not have names, rather their suggested placement. I ordered them by transition shade, eyelid, crease and brow bone. The picture doesn’t do them justice. I only did one swipe to swatch them, but I feel like they look a little patchy. Please trust me when I say that they do not wear this way on the eyes. The transition and eyelid shades perform the best, but they all blend out beautifully with very little fallout.

The older versions are still a solid purchase. These shimmer shades wear beautifully and are a great addition to any eyeshadow collection. I love adding these shades to the middle of my eyelid or inner corner to highlight. And, let’s be honest, who doesn’t like to add a little sparkle?

These shades swatched WAY better. I love the combination of mattes, shimmers and duo chromes. Also, the earth tone colors are absolutely amazing. I think it is an interesting palette to play around with since it is neutral, but not boring in any way. Again, these shades are pigmented, easy to apply and blend out with little fallout. So, so many options with this one.
Pictured in natural light. Isn’t that green color gorgeous!?
The packaging has had a bit of updating, too. I like that it gives you a visual of where to place each color and ideas for the 10 pan palette. So, if you’re looking for a little inspo just flip it over. I will say that the packaging is very thin and flimsy. Definitely handle with care.
Overall, I love these guys and highly recommend that you go buy one, or all, of the coloricon palettes. The colors are current, pigmented and easy to blend out. Not to mention, they are crazy affordable! So run to your nearest drugstore and grab a few!
