Reader Sarah wanted to see five duochromes, and I thought I’d try to get some variety in type of product. A product with a duochrome finish or color will look like one color when you look at it straight on, and then when you angle it, it can look like an entirely different color (or nearly so). MAC has several duochrome eyeshadows and pigments (more than most other brands that I’m aware of)–far more than the two here on the list.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio: I’m Feeling Retro
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.
my thoughts on the formula: Color Icon Eyeshadows are definitely some of the best eyeshadows you’ll find in the drugstore, and this trio is well-pigmented, smooth to the touch, and the colors themselves performed well in a wear test–easy to apply and blend while lasting the eight hours I wore it for (without any fading that I could see). The brow bone shade wasn’t quite as pigmented as the other two shades but I wouldn’t say it’s sheer (decent but not good, you know?).
The two colored shades are fun, pigmented, and love that the fuchsia-purple shade is more of a duochrome finish, too. You just don't get to see that in this price range usually.
