Bed of Roses

Wet ‘n’ Wild Bed of Roses Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($2.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of four shades–two shimmers, two mattes. Per the brand, they can be used wet or dry, which I did not find to be true with the mattes–the mattes turned into stiff, un-blendable powders used dry. At most, you could use a thin, angled brush to stamp it into place, though you’ll create a hard surface on the pan if you use a damp/wet brush directly in the pan. It was fine to use the shimmery shades with a wet brush (and it didn’t affect the surface) and using them did improve their pigmentation and adhesion. Bed of thorns was more like it!

Bed of Roses #1

Bed of Roses #1 is a muted, light-medium plum with warm undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had larger particles of shimmer that emphasized my skin texture more, though it wasn’t thick. The texture was drier, more loosely-pressed and prone to fallout during application. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry and opaque coverage applied wet. It stayed on well for six hours before fading noticeably on me.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to be "powerfully pigmented" with a "butter-soft" texture that "glides on like a dream." The majority of the eyeshadows are on the drier side, sometimes feeling loosely pressed and other times more chalk-like and truly dry to the point where a primer became a must for getting good adhesion and wear out of the formula. Most of the matte shades were quite pigmented, and I found they actually applied better to bare skin than some of the shimmers, which often appeared faded and muted in practice compared to how they appeared in the pan. The pigmentation varied from decent to mostly opaque depending on the shade, and the wear was typically between five and seven hours on me.

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.

Bed of Roses #2

Bed of Roses #2 is a medium-dark, reddish copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation applied dry, though it didn’t intensify much when used wet and wasn’t as easy to work with when I tried to blend it out. The texture was drier and a bit more firmly pressed in the pan, but I was able to work with it enough to blend out some of the edges. It lasted for six hours on me before it started to fade visibly.

Bed of Roses #3

Bed of Roses #3 is a blackened purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had an incredibly stiff, drier texture that I had to jab at to loosen powder off the surface for application. It was difficult to diffuse the edges of dry, and it was impossible to blend it out with a wet brush–I could only use it as an eyeliner stamped into place. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but I was incapable of getting the edge to soften and gave up after a solid try (I want some of the struggle to convey–I don’t want to blend out one shade for 30 minutes). If you want to use this wet, be sure to pick up product first, then spritz your brush or dip into the wetting agent, as the pan hardened immediately after being touched by a lightly dampened brush.

Bed of Roses #4

Bed of Roses #4 is a deep burgundy with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage applied dry and wet–I didn’t find the intensity actually changed, it just because unworkable when used wet as it did not move or blend out. The texture was fairly soft but could have been more blendable and had less fallout during application. I noticed signs of fading after six and a half hours of wear.

This is one of those “thank goodness I have dupes for this” type of sorry-azz products. I would much rather try to blend out MAC Shadowy Lady and Sketch before even *thinking* about attempting to wrestle with this palette! And that’s really sad, because the actual shades picked go together so perfectly.

Or, a more intense version of this quad would be Star Violet, Cranberry, Indian Ink, & Deep Damson… I never would have thought to use those 4 singles together, until I got this quad, so at least it’s inspiring, LOL!

OMG – this is bad….why does a brand bother when the final result is so poor? Thank you for reviewing this product Christine, even though the results were not as expected.

I bought these primarily for “novelty” purposes, so if I can’t get them to work, I still won’t be too disappointed… They literally just came to my door less than an hour ago, so I haven’t had a chance to do more than swatch them, but I think I can actually get some use out of them, even if it means just using the deeper matte shades as liners, and the shimmers over a tackier base… The combinations are just so pretty, and if nothing else, will inspire me to dig out similar shades.

Wow, didn’t expect this review to be like that. I saw a tutorial yesterday and a lady who used this eyeshadow quad did an amazing job and she had no issues with application.

I have watched quite a few reviews and tutorials using these quads, and I’ve not seen any terrible reviews. The worst one was the quad with the dark green. I’m surprised this got such a low marks here. I didn’t buy any of them but I’m still very surprised.

I can only review based on my personal experience! It’s great that other people have had better experiences.

Disappointing! The rose imprint of these looks so pretty and while this colour assortment would never work for me, I’d have been so happy to see something this pretty and this affordable also be a good performer.

Wow, I have this, I don’t find it that bad but maybe thats just my preference…or there’s more than one batch? The colors are just a bit deceiving in the pan- the light shade especially, and the purple is more of dark cool brown. and the shimmer is a bit more intense than I prefer, but the texture and pigmentation seems fine.

I reviewed them both wet/dry and without primer, so if you normally use primer, I’d expect that to help somewhat (at least) 🙂

This palette is so pretty! I’m glad they’re jazzing up the packaging and pans, but maybe they could spend some of that extra money on formulations next time?
