Wet n Wild Shimmer The Night Away

Wet n Wild Shimmer The Night Away is one of the new limited edition Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes this holiday season. There are three in total (Sparkle ‘Til Morning and Drinking A Glass Of Shine – which incidentally is the same exact palette as I Heart Matte).

This palette features a side of lights & darks and then a super colorful side of purples and blues.

Wet n Wild Shimmer The Night Away Swatches
Left side: Browbone, Eyelid, Crease, Definer

The Browbone shade is an icy shimmery white.

The Eyelid shade is an intense silver metallic.

The Crease shade is a dark grey with silver glitter.

The Definer shade is a black with silver glitter.

I was fairly impressed with the first three of these considering I didn’t use any primer. They all feel soft and had good pigmentation. The Definer shade though was a bit patchy without a primer.

Right side: Browbone, Eyelid, Crease, Definer

The Browbone shade is a pale pink/lavender with very subtle shimmer.

The Eyelid shade is a bright fuchsia/purple.

The Crease shade is a medium sparkly purple.

The Definer is a medium bright blue glitter.

The pigmentation with these shades wasn’t as strong as I had hoped. I had to work a bit to get them to really show up. I think over a primer they would be a bit more intense.

Overall: I like this palette but definitely not as much as Sparkle ‘Til Morning. I don’t think it’s as universal and the pigmentation wasn’t as good.

Availability: Walgreens, CVS, etc.

Pricing: $4.99.

Are you interested in the shades in this one or do you prefer more natural shadows?
