Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Photo Op Eyeshadow Collection Swatches and Review

Fergie Centerstage Collection Photo Op Eyeshadow

The Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Photo Op Eyeshadow Collection features four eyeshadow palettes, each featuring five shades exclusive to the Fergie collection.

Each of the palettes features different finishes within, so you can create a variety of looks. They are meant to be intensely pigmented, long-wearing shadows.

My experience with these overall was pretty good. Most of the shadows were nicely pigmented and while they didn’t feel like the softest shadows I have ever used, they didn’t feel hard or chalky either.

The Maldives Sky palette features really bold colors, all on the cool side.

First we have a pale green shimmer, which was one of the most sheer shadows in all these palettes.

Second is a medium purple matte.

Third is a medium navy blue metallic.

Fourth is an intense teal with shimmer. Gorgeous shade and very pigmented.

In the middle is a deep charcoal grey matte.

The Dutchess Lounge palette features mostly deep smokey purple shades.

First we have a sparkly pale silver.

Second is a very dark shimmery eggplant with great pigmentation.

Third is a super sparkly black, very saturated.

Fourth is a glittery purple, again with great pigmentation.

In the middle is a medium matte purple, a little on the patchy side.

The Desert Festival palette features all warm, more natural shades.

First is a very pale tan with slight sheen. Very hard to see!

Second is a vivid burnt orange matte, nice pigmentation.

Third is a very dark chocolate brown with glitter. Looks nearly black here but it’s really not.

Fourth is a shimmery warm tangerine/peach shade. Great pigmentation and soft.

In the middle is a deep chocolate brown matte with great payoff.

The Metropolitan Nights palette might be the hardest to wear overall because it features some yellow and starker shades.

First up is a bright white sheen.

Second is a super glittery warm yellow that barely shows up and feels a bit gritty.

Third is a black with yellow glitter.

Fourth is a shimmery silvery/taupe shade. Kind of a strange one in this palette I think.

In the middle is a black matte.

Overall: There were some hits and misses, but mostly hits. My favorite two are Maldives Sky and Desert Festival. I think of all of these Desert Festival is probably the easiest most natural one, and also it has the best pigmentation and texture in one palette.

Availability: Drugstores.

Pricing: $4.99.

    I like desert festvial and metropolian nights

      I think Desert Festival will be the fav for most people.

  • February 27, 2013

    I bought desert festival when these palettes came out, and I felt that the orange matte didn’t translate as well on my eye as it does in your swatch. It just didn’t have the vividness on my lid, even though I used the primer.

    These swatched so well for you! I was really excited about them, but really disappointed with how they swatched for me – not smooth or pigmented enough, alas.

    I have one of those Fergie WNW kits upstairs (can’t think of the name). it comes w/a 4-kit shadow, liner, mascara, e/s brush, and brow comb/brush. I like everything but the liner…very hard to apply.

    Yours is the very first review on the shadows that was not all negative. Your swatches look amazing. If I had seen your review first I would have bought a few of these, instead I have avoided them like the plague! Love the teal on your eyes, very pretty.

    We finally have some of the Fergie Collection at Walmart in Canada. I saw the nail polishes. I hope that these make it because they are so pretty!

    I really like the Metro Nights one!

    The colors in all of these palettes are gorgeous, and I truly love Wet n Wild eyeshadows, but I don’t think I’ll be purchasing any of these. While they’re pretty, I don’t know if I could make any of the colors work for me. Maldives Sky does look great on you with your hair color and I’m sure a ton of women can pull these colors off, but they do kind of actually make me nervous.

    I picked up Maldives Sky and I don’t know if I’ve ever disliked a palette as much as this one. Dry, chalky, didn’t wear well at all. Considering the usual quality of WnW eyeshadows, I was terribly disappointed.
