Yeah, I’m on a low-buy, but this was CA$4.99 and that’s pretty cheap! 😉 And, the Color Icon eyeshadows are pretty amazing for the price.
I finally went to a Rexall (that’s a Canadian drugstore chain) for the first time in eons, and they have Wet n Wild! I normally order my Color Icon palettes from Well.ca, but they don’t seem to carry the seasonal collections.
So, the Rexall had the Wet n Wild Spring 2015 Silver Lake Collection, and I picked out a fun, warm-toned palette full of bright near-pastels.
California Roll is a happy little palette with four shimmers and two mattes:
- warm vanilla shimmer
- peachy nude shimmer
- wasabi pea green shimmer
- coral matte
- turquoise shimmer
- warm pomegranate matte
I’ve only swatched them so far, and apart from the peachy nude shimmer (top right in the palette), they all seem lovely and smooth. The green shimmer and the coral matte in particular seem really creamy. The peachy nude has the largest shimmer flakes and I foresee fallout with it. The pomegranate was a tad chalky. However, it is well-pigmented like the other shadows, barring the peachy nude.
Here are photos of the other Wet n Wild Color Icon palettes I have:
