Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio
Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) contains a peachy-orange, medium-dark brown, and light-medium blue all with matte finishes. Everything was powdery, and two of the shades were also chalky. I had major wear issues with these, as the eyeshadows on their own (not to sound like a broken record, but Wet ‘n’ Wild advertises the Color Icon formula as long-wearing and highly-pigmented, which is why the poor wear is such a problem) disappear in their entirety after five hours of wear–they were half-gone after three hours. It was like my lids were hungry for eyeshadow. Over a primer (I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance), they were slightly better–six hours with a fair amount of fading. Over a creamy base (I used NYX Milk), they performed the best and wore fairly well for seven hours, but you’ll be packing on the eyeshadow to get the color payoff to be true-to-pan.
To Muse and Carouse #1 is a light-medium orange with a matte finish. It’s chalky and somewhat powdery, but it had so-so color payoff. See comparison swatches.
To Muse and Carouse #2 is a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with a mostly matte finish. It was very powdery. See comparison swatches.
To Muse and Carouse #3 is a light-medium blue with a matte finish. It was incredibly sheer, powdery, and chalky. See comparison swatches.
* Please note: This is a quick review, so while I’ve still pulled dupes, I just haven’t gone through them one-by-one and broken out how they differ.
