Rose in the Air

Wet ‘n’ Wild Rose in the Air Color Icon Eyeshadow 10-Pan Palette ($4.99 for 0.35 oz.) is a mix of warm-toned neutrals and a pop of mauve and berry. The mattes performed better than the shimmers, which was a good thing since most of the shades in this palette were matte. They were not as pigmented as marketed, though many shades had buildable pigmentation in practice. The formula had a drier feel overall that improves significantly with primer as the eyeshadows don’t start fading until the ninth hour and are a bit more pigmented upon initial application.

It seemed inspired by Anastasia’s Modern Renaissance palette (see the two compared side-by-side here), and I think they were more functionally similar than they were 1:1 across the board (and of course, the quality differed between some of the similar shades).

Take Me Home

Colour Pop Take Me Home 6-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a six-pan palette with warm, neutrals–four mattes and two shimmers! They are previously-released shades, though I found Issues to be different enough than my previous version to merit a different name (hence the #2!) and “Bitter Better” was labeled “Better Bitter” in a past palette–they’re similar enough that I think they’re supposed to be the same shade but not 100% the same (see below).

Hooked on Vinyl

Wet ‘n’ Wild Hooked on Vinyl Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($2.99 for 0.16 oz.) contains three neutrals and a pop of smoky teal. Three of the shades were decent enough, but the deeper teal shade, while pigmented, was a real pain to work with and blend out. It was just the type of texture that stuck very strongly wherever it initially applied and did not want to blend or even out nicely.

Silent Treatment

Wet ‘n’ Wild Silent Treatment Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($2.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, permanent set of neutral shades–mauve, peach, deep taupe, light taupe–housed in a slim, plastic palette. They were not the worst eyeshadows I’ve used, but there was a dryness present through the formula that made them harder to use without a good primer underneath.

Wet ‘n’ Wild reformulated their eyeshadow trios and palettes with the trios expanding to quads and some shades getting changed. I did not keep most of the previously-released trios and palettes from the brand as mine, but when I compared 2018’s formula to the prior one (and mine are likely five or more years old), the previous formula was far better for their shimmers–slightly more slip, creamier in feel, and typically more pigmented and true-to-color on the lid. I think the mattes, overall, are improved as they are more blendable and pigmented on the lid.

What Went Down

Colour Pop What Went Down Super Shock Shadow Quad ($18.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a set of shades that was released in late fall. As always, the shades can be purchased individually as well (and there’s not much savings if you buy all four — only worth it if you’d use all four), which is a nice touch. The four worked together to create a really stunning look, but with two of the four shades being matte, the foursome might be everyone’s cup of tea.

Golden Shine

MAC Golden Shine Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains warm-toned neutrals to the tune of beige, copper, rosy copper, and brown. They can come together and create a nice, cohesive look (assuming one likes a lot of shimmer), but they need to be used with a dampened brush to apply well.
