FOTD: Wet N' Wild ColorIcon Trio in I'm Feeling Retro....

Thursday, February 03, 2011

 Now....I'm not a makeup artist....just a girl who loves makeup...so dont take my application too seriously. I just wanted to show my fam how I'm working out these new Wet N' Wild ColorIcon Trios. I know that everyone has been raving about the pigmentation and colors but notice something today while playing with I'm Feeling Retro ( shown at the top)....

The consistency of these shadows are very much like those of the shadow palettes you buy at the local  BSS for $2.99. Its that powdery, and sometimes hard to blend texture. My NK HD shadows are like that. Vibrant colors but hell to blend out and they most of the times, if it not always a shimmer/satin.

Just wanted let you guys know my opinion on these....The colors are slightly original but the formula is has been done. Probably the best thing about them is that they may be dupes of other higher end brands and they are cheap.
 I'm wearing all three colors in I'm Feeling Retro....I'm not feeling that white shimmer color. The blending the  texture is horrific. And who would put that on their browbone as a hightlight??
 I have something like the iridescent pink color in my NK HD eye shadows ( #3024, check the link)...but I think it a MAC dupe of Romping ( which is MAC Too Dolly palette that I sold at the Blog Sale) or MAC Pink Pearl Pigment.

Come to think of it...the whole palette is very Too Dolly...excluding a black shade and MAC Yogurt.

The green shade.....possible dupe of MAC Parrot. I swatched it and compared it to my NK HD shadow in #3006, which is a Parrot dupe...very, very close.

I actually used a matte black shade to deepen the outer corner and crease.

Its an okay palette...but not original....more FOTDs coming soon!!

Love what you've done here, even if it wasn't easy to achieve. :D I'm excited to find this one & the Greenie one myself.. I wish we had CVS up here in the NW, but all we have is Rite Aid and its similar but not the same. *sigh

This is a gorgeous look too, you are seriously making me want to try my hand at bright colors again, lol. I have 3 huge palettes full of these beautiful bright colors but I tend to stick with neutral colors. My bold bright looks always look off to me.

Adjua- thanks! Glad to have inspired you! lol! I love neutrals and they are my favorites but every once in a while I need a shot of color.:) Just play around the colors and see what happens. I get like that too.
