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! Β The brow bone shade is a pale white with a frosted finish–it’s a touch sheer. Β The crease shade is a moody medium-dark blue with a frost finish. Β 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). Β  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?).

Oooh the swatches look like how I frequently do my eyes with UD Shattered, Asphyxia, and Vapor (w/ Electric 24/7 liner of course). Guess I’m heading on over to Walgreens tomorrow… πŸ™‚

I noticed that as well! I’m not a huge bright eye shadow fan, but I might just purchase this one. Can’t beat the price πŸ™‚

I can’t thank you enough for reviewing Wet and Wild! I wish I could afford Guerlain and Chanel but I lost my job in this recession and times are tough. Reviews like this that help me find stuff on a budget really make me happy! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Christine! And good luck with your last essay πŸ™‚

I purchased this palette and love it! I tend to layer the blue and fuchsia together to make a kind of duochrome purple that I really like and it similar to one Lorac recently came out with. Lovin’ me some WnW!

I did a recent review on these and loved them all except this one. On my fair skin it was hard to see and not very pigmented at all which was a bummer cause i was really excited for the fuchsia color.

My first eyeshadow that I EVER owned was a Blue and Purple matte Wet n’ Wild duo! This palette REALLY does make me feel “Retro” I’m getting this one A.S.A.P for old times sake!

I really am impressed with the quality of the WnW Colour Icon shadows (singles and palettes). I’ve only discovered these in the last year or so. But the colours in this palette are ones I just don’t wear so I’ll be taking a pass on this one.

What MAC blue would be the closest to the WNW blue? I want to use what I already have. I have Pink Pearl and that is close enough to Stars and Rockets for me. Thank you!

I just bought this one and the “sweet as candy” trio. Great product at such a low price. My first WnW purchase ever. I might be picking the others as well… Thank you for reviewing this Christine!

Kate Avatar

I just went out and bought this after reading the review πŸ™‚ are you going to review the other WnW trios? I saw some others that I liked!

i have the shimmermoss and stars n rockets eyeshadow from mac….you have already mentioned that the purply-pinky shade looks like mac’s stars and rockets….but do you think the bluey-tealy color would be similar to shimmermoss???

Hannah Avatar

FYI, the pink in this palette is a really good dupe for MAC’s Swish. Maybe just a tiny bit darker, and actually more pigmented. It’s got the same purple-blue duo chrome.

I haven’t touched drug store makeup in years, not only because a lot of company’s are not cruelty free, but I never could get the end result I wanted. The brighter and crazier the color the better. I’m mostly a loose pigment eyeshadow wearer, but recently I’ve been buying cake shadows for those on-the-go days. After seeing these wet n’ wild swatches I decided to give them a try despite poor quality of a lot of their products. I picked up “I’m Feeling Retro”, ” I Got Good Jeans” and “I’m Getting Sunburned” . I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The frosted shades were soft and very pigmented. The crease shade in I’m Getting sunburned was very dark and sparkly, I loved it! I’ve been recommending it to my friends who are looking into playing with bright colors. And Wet n’ Wild are cruelty free!The only thing I noticed when I tested them on my hand is they wiped off easily so make sure to use a base πŸ™‚
