Wet ‘n’ Wild I Don’t Do Camouflage Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild I Don’t Do Camouflage Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is one of four new–and limited edition–Color Icon Eyeshadow Trios for fall. According to the brand, each trio features “highly pigmented shades” with a variety of finishes and pre-packaged with a tube of Mega Protein Mascara as a bonus. The trio will be available at local drugstores (not online as far as I know), though I haven’t spotted any displays near me yet (but I never seem to catch them!). I’m afraid that this trio is a major miss for me, once again. I had fingers and toes crossed for a return to pigmentation, but all three shades were lacking in quality. The eyelid shade had promising pigmentation, but the powdery texture was worrisome and ultimately was its downfall. I tried these on bare lids (about two to three hours of wear), with eyeshadow primer (NARS and Urban Decay) (four to five hours of wear), and then over NYX’s Milk (creamy white) and nothing was working. Even over what is typically the saving grace of most pitiful eyeshadows, it was faded, patchy, and uneven within three hours (and then almost gone entirely by the sixth hour).

Sephora Romantic Comedy & Summer Cruise Contour Eye Pencils

Sephora Romantic Comedy (35) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “flashy pink.” It’s a bright pop of fuchsia-pink with cool, blue undertones, and a smattering of silver sparkle. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color with two to three layers of product. The consistency was lightly creamy, somewhat waxy, and it glided on well without tugging at the lash line. It wore well for almost ten hours and then started to thin/fade. Urban Decay Woodstock is redder, less blue-based. MAC Process Magenta is redder, darker, matte. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Meerkat Pressed Eyeshadow & Loose Eyeshadow

Fyrinnae Meerkat Pressed Eyeshadow ($9.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vibrant pink-purple with gold shimmer and sparkle highlight.” It’s a plummy purple with gold shimmer and sparkle. It had good color payoff applied dry as well as over Pixie Epoxy. The texture was fairly soft, though it had quite a bit of sparkle, so it wasn’t perfectly smooth. MAC Double Feature #1 #2 is darker, more plum. Buxom Schnauzer is similar, slightly more muted. OCC Overlook is darker. Inglot #445 is similar but less gold shimmer. See comparison swatches.

Sephora Banana Split (10) & Indulge Yourself (22) Contour Eye Pencils

Sephora Banana Split (10) Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “yellow.” It’s a bright, sunny yellow with a matte finish. It’s this matte finish that makes it hard to dupe–I only have one other matte yellow in my stash, which is MAC Primary Yellow, which I find is slightly warmer. The color payoff is good, even in a single stroke, and it’s buildable to mostly opaque color. The consistency is creamy, a little thicker compared to other shades in the formula, but it works well on the lash line as it doesn’t tug or pull and deposits good color from the get-go. It wore well for ten hours on me, which isn’t the full 12-hours that Sephora claims, but relative to other eyeliners, it is a nice, long-lasting shade.
