Wet N Wild "Blue Had Me At Hello" Palette

Hi! I'm really sorry I've been missing. I really don't want to talk about it but I am going through a REALLY rough time. To be honest, I've been super depressed & haven't felt up to doing makeup. But, I need to get back to doing what I love.

Anyways, onto the good stuff..I picked up Wet N Wild's Color Icon Palette's at Savemart about a week ago. I originally just bought "Blue Had Me At Hello" & "Comfort Zone" but I couldn't resist & picked up "Petal Pusher" a few days later!

Today I will be reviewing "Blue Had Me At Hello" palette!

(L to R: Blue Had Me At Hello, Comfort Zone & Petal Pusher)

I love blue eyeshadow (Yes, I was born in the 80's!) and this caught my eye as soon as I saw it! The palette comes with 8 shadows, two colors for your brow bone, eyelid, crease & definer.
That teal (second on the right) is my FAVORITE color in this palette. I have to admit that I love all of the colors. I'm super picky about blues on me because I feel like they can really wash my skin out. I'm really impressed with Wet N Wild, when I was younger they were the cheap brand that I started out with & they were kind of crappy. Man, they truly stepped their game up BIG TIME. These shadows are super pigmented & easy to blend. Plus with a price tag of $3.99 each, they are a complete steal! They do have a bit of fall out & the darker colors go on much darker than I expected. The packaging is a little cheap & it is not sturdy. I know if I dropped this palette the shadows would just crumble! But all in all, I think that this is a great palette! The set would be perfect for a makeup kit.Here are all the colors swatched. I went from the left side of the palette, starting with the brownbone color & then back to the browbone color on the right side. I also swatched NYX Eyeshadow Base in White with the bright teal eyelid color.
Left Column:Browbone-Frosty white, Eyelid-super frosty silver, Crease-black with navy shimmer, Definer-matte black
Right Column:Browbone-frosty baby blue, Eyelid-Frosty Bright Teal, Crease-Frosty navy, Definer-Black with silver glitter.
Can I tell you that the right definer color is a dupe to MAC's Black-Tied. It matches almost perfectly!

Here's my look with the palette. I used the entire right column for this look. Of course, I had to add my cat eye liquid liner!

I adore that teal color, I couldn't wait to try it out!

Have you tried any of these palettes? What do you think!?
