Wet ‘n’ Wild Three’s a Party Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Three’s a Party Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) contains a white, red, and black. Of all the trios, this is the only one I’d really consider getting, which is due to the red eyeshadow, as it is difficult to find red eyeshadows, period, let alone at this price point. The red and black eyeshadows are also better than the majority of the collection, as they did not fade as quickly and were much more pigmented. I experienced noticeable fading without a primer (remember, Wet ‘n’ Wild touts these as highly pigmented and long-wearing!) after four hours. Over a primer, I was able to get to seven hours overall before it started looking faded.

Wet ‘n’ Wild A Regular at the Factory Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild A Regular at the Factory Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a limited edition palette for summer, so you’ll have to hunt around your local drugstores for this one (I’ve yet to spot any of the Pop Art displays in my area, which means it hasn’t arrived yet or it has already sold out!). This was one of the “better” trios I tested, though it was still underwhelming, due to the incredible powderiness across the shades. These absolutely need to be worn over a primer, because they are prone to fading and creasing–they lasted a mere four hours before fading significantly without a primer–and even over primer, they didn’t last beyond eight hours.  They’re powdery, easily sheered out (but harder to build up), prone to fading, and really do not show why Color Icon eyeshadows were so coveted when they first debuted. (And Color Icon is a formula touted as highly pigmented and long-wearing.)

Sugarpill ElektroCute Neon Pigments

Sugarpill ElektroCute Neon Pigments ($16.00 for 0.19 oz.) come in an assortment of five bold, bright shades. Overall, these are going to be a product some will absolutely love and others will find frustrating and difficult to use (and ultimately not worth the patience). These are designed to be used with some sort of base or mixing medium and shouldn’t be applied straight to bare skin. Over the past week, I’ve tried a rich assortment of bases and mixing mediums, and I’ll lay out my findings below, but suffice to say, expect a fair amount of fall out, some trial and error, and maybe a test of your patience. On the plus side, when I wore these out, I was stopped by no less than five people asking me what I was wearing (in the space of an hour).
