Stop Ruffling My Feathers

Wet ‘n’ Wild Stop Ruffling My Feathers Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($2.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad for summer that features a soft taupe, pale rosy taupe, copper, and golden pink. Three of the four shades are shimmery, but the way I’ve experienced Wet ‘n’ Wild’s eyeshadow formula, even the more shimmery shades tend to have a more pearlescent sheen applied than intensely reflective. Three of the four shades were fairly easy to work with but one was a big disappointment (and it’s baffling as to why, given the hue itself, should have been a walk in the park to do).

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #1

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #1 is a soft, taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a rather powdery consistency with a lot of excess product kicked up in the pan and some fallout during application (even after I tapped away excess). Luckily, it was pigmented enough that it still yielded mostly opaque coverage despite the powderiness. It lasted for seven hours 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.

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #2

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #2 is a soft taupe with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had sheer coverage, which was difficult to improve despite trying it with primer and a dampened brush. I think the closeness to my skin tone helped minimize how obviously under-pigmented it was. The texture was smooth and dense but not firm, yet the payoff was dismal. It wore well for six hours for me before fading noticeably.

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #3

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #3 is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer with a smooth, blendable texture that wasn’t too soft nor too firm in the pan, which made it easy to work with. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #4

Stop Ruffling My Feathers #4 is a light-medium, cooler pink base with warmer, golden shimmer. It had excellent pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The consistency was soft, blendable, and wasn’t prone to fallout or powderiness in the pan. It lasted nicely for seven hours before fading a bit.

It’s really sad when a brand can get the more unusual shades completely right, but then fail dismailly on the common shades, like the browns/neutrals.

I think I prefer the new Milani eyeshadow palette – it is out in shimmers and in mattes. which are stunning.

“but one was a big disappointment (and it’s baffling as to why, given the hue itself, should have been a walk in the park to do).”

I think this whenever a brand releases a super lame bronze. I’m like… it’s basically the making a bowl of cereal of makeup. Not that hard! Impossible to get wrong! Should have a delicious result!

Still, two A-rated shades and one B-rated shade for $2.99 is very nice. If these were shades that looked good on me, I’d definitely buy this palette for my office back-up stash.
