Wet ‘n’ Wild I’m Feeling Retro Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio Swatches, Photos, Review

Wet ‘n’ Wild I’m Feeling Retro Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a mix of bright pops of color and a softer brow bone shade… that actually makes sense!  The brow bone shade is a pale white with a frosted finish–it’s a touch sheer.  The crease shade is a moody medium-dark blue with a frost finish.  The eyelid shade is a fuchsia-purple with a pink iridescence/duochrome–think shades like MAC Stars ‘n Rockets and Urban Decay’s Fishnet.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Drifter Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Drifter Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is described as a modern, sexy take on sultry, lush plum.  It’s sold out and not sure if it’ll ever return, but in case it does, this post will be here for all eternity as a reference.  Plus, perhaps together we can find dupes.  This is a really rich, deep dark plummed burgundy cream.  I only needed two coats for complete opaque color, but one was nearly enough.  The closest shade I could think of to dupe this is Essie’s Masquerade Belle, which is slightly less plum.

Chanel Teheran (56) Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Teheran (56) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a frosted pinked coral with soft iridescent pink-fuchsia shimmer. It’s a warmer shade, which means it will suit warmer complexions with ease. I think the way the pink sheen catches the light may make it wearable for cooler skin tones, though. For a Rouge Coco, it has a surprising amount of color coverage–virtually opaque–and didn’t seem as dry as other shades I’ve tried with similar frost finishes.

theBalm Sexy Stacey Eyeshadow

theBalm Sexy Stacey Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “shimmering pewter.” It’s a dark gray with silver shimmer and sheen–and the faintest hint of teal micro-shimmer. I wouldn’t call it pewter myself; it’s just too gray to be pewter, which tends to lean more taupe or gold, depending on the base.
