New Wet 'n Wild Holiday palettes!

As a hardcore Wet 'n Wild devotee (my HG mascara is their Mega Volume in the yellow tube - I get fat, black lashes for under $2!), I was thrilled to see these at Meijer on Saturday. For whatever reason, I stared longingly at them and then passed. As though it was meant to be, their Sunday ad included all Wet 'n Wild for 50% off this week! So I went back and got 2 of the sets, Night Elf and Sugar Plum Fairy. Any good blogger would've gotten pics of the entire display and names of the other palettes, but, well, I never claimed to BE a good blogger, so... ;-) Anyway! Here are some pics and swatches of what I did get.

First, Sugar Plum Fairy...




Left to right on my fingertips is top to bottom (starting on left side) in the palette


Holy pigmentation on the brown, right?! This is what's left over after swiping on my hand! I may need a backup of this palette! The 2 lighter shades (top) are not that special in my opinion, but the other 4 are looovely! The 2 middle ones have a pretty golden sheen to them in certain lighting. The brown isn't just your ordinary brown; it has a coppery shimmer. This one comes with a mini eyeliner in Purple Violet.



Next is Night Elf...
(Try to ignore the reflection of my pink camera, 'k thanks! ;-))



(Sorry, I messed up on the order of swatching in the next 2 pics...remember what I said earlier about not being the greatest blogger? I wasn't lying to you!)

See the middle one here (bottom left in palette)? It's a total MAC Club dupe!!! Yeah, that's right, an entire palette including a MAC Dupe for almost 1/3 the cost (at retail!) of a single MAC eyeshadow! I might get a backup of this one too if only for that (I do like the other colors as well, but red and black shadows just don't flatter me). This one comes with a mini eyeliner in Black Noir (it's shimmery black).



I can't say how the wear is on these, because I've not tried them yet, but as long as they're on par with my Wet 'n Wild Lust palette (which, with a primer, wears all day on me without touchups), I'll be happy as a clam! If you plan to get any of these too, better pick them up first chance you get, as the labels on the back of the palettes say "Limited Edition" so I don't think these are going to become part of Wet 'n Wild's core ColorIcon palette line!

  9. Thanks ladies! I ended up going back to Meijer and getting 5 (!) more palettes because I forgot about the $5 of $10 WnW coupon in All You. So I got 5 for $7.49, including tax! I'll likely do a giveaway at some point, so if you can't find these, stay tuned! =)

  16. Hey sweetie! I hope this is OK, but I'd like to use one of your photos of the Sugar Plum Fairy palette for a dupe post I'm doing right now. I will OF COURSE give you full credit for the image with (another) link back to this awesome post! If for any reason you'd like to remove your image from my post, just let me know and I'll do that ASAP. Hope that's OK with you, love! xo
