Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad – Petalette

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad Petalette Review

Today I’m going to review Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad in the shade Petalette. I got this on sale when I hauled a lot of products from Wet n Wild and instantly fell in love with the burgundy shade and the price point. Let’s get started and see how this palette fared out for me and do I recommend it?

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad- Petalette

Price: ₹299 for 4.5g

Available on Nykaa, HOK Makeup and Flipkart.

I got it from HOK Makeup during a sale for ₹220-230.

You can also check Flipkart for the same as they keep having a sale on Wet n Wild.

About the brand

Wet n Wild is a Los Angeles based company bringing to you stunning range of cosmetics with high-performance formulations all available at unbeatable prices. The brand is Peta-certified cruelty-free.

MY THOUGHTS

It comes in 6 different shades and I got the one named ‘Petalette’. I’ve been wanting to get a pink-based eyeshadow palette but didn’t want to invest much as I rarely wear eyeshadows. So this one from Wet n Wild seemed to be the perfect option.

Packaging

It comes in a small plastic palette that has a transparent lid. The packaging isn’t very sturdy but it’s something you can make do with. It doesn’t come with an applicator or mirror but for 299, I don’t expect much.

At the back, they have specified the steps to create an eye look with the palette which is pretty helpful for beginners.

Shades, Texture & Smell

There are 4 eyeshadows in the palette, as the name (quad) suggests- Transition, Crease, Eyelid and Browbone – all the shadows are embossed with their name which makes it easier to identify.

It has 3 shimmer shadows- Eyelid (Light Pink), Crease (Burgundy) and Browbone (Iridescent White) and 1 matte shadow- Transition (Neutral-Mauve).

Most of the shades are powdery, not buttery which causes product fallout and requires some serious blending.

It doesn’t have any weird or sweet smell to it.

How does it work?

I had to swatch multiple times and literally press my fingers for the colours to show up in the swatches. When I tried swatching it with a brush, hardly anything showed up. I used these with Wet n Wild eye brushes only.

Let’s talk about each shadow and how they perform.

Transition: This is a very sheer neutral-mauve shade, especially for us brown girls and doesn’t show up much on the lids. God forbid if you have dark circles like me! Priming the lids and providing an even-toned canvas is a must for this shade.

Decent transition shade if you have lighter skin.

Crease: It’s a gorgeous burgundy shade with light shimmer and the reason I bought this palette. There’s quite some fallout with this one so it takes effort while blending. The pigmentation of this is the best in the palette.

Gives depth when used on the crease and outer corner and can be used to line the eyes.

Browbone: This is a bright shimmery iridescent white shade with a purple sheen to it and can be used on the inner corner of eyes and lids.  You need to wet the brush or use your fingers for the colour to stand out.

Eyelid: This is a baby pink shade that has shimmers to it. Again need wet brushes or finger to get proper pigmentation.

Application

I played with this a bit and did a very basic eye makeup which turned out okay-ish. What do you think?

I’ll try to break it down a bit to you:

  • Covered undereye circles with concealer and set it with powder, except the lids. I wanted the shimmer shade to stick and show up better.
  • Eyelid shade all over the lids with finger.
  • Crease shade on the outer corner and blended with Wet n Wild crease brush. Also applied it on lower lash line.
  • Took transition shade on the brush to blend the line between crease shade and eyelid shade.
  • Used browbone on the inner corner.
  • Put a very thin line with an eyeliner on the inner half of eyes so it doesn’t look harsh and make my lash line intense.
  • Put on mascara!

CONCLUSION

Overall, this is a decent eyeshadow palette for the price (4 shades for 300!!) and if you’re someone wanting to explore eye makeup you should definitely get it. But if you’re someone who has used some really good, creamy eyeshadows, you’d be disappointed.

Nevertheless, I like playing with it and it has some shades I didn’t own before, so it was a good eye palette for the price.

  6. WnW has a lot of great products but they’re all very hit or miss. I do agree that their eyeshadows could use some work but they’re also good for beginners as they’re not as pigmented and if you mess up, it’s easy to fix.
    Great in depth review!
