Wet n Wild Not a Basic Peach Eyeshadow Palette Review

Wet n Wild Not a Basic Peach Eyeshadow PaletteAbout a month ago, I needed makeup after a sudden announcement that a client would be stopping by and I was going to be in that meeting. And as much as I love my non-makeup look… I wanted to step up my look a bit so I went to the drugstore and picked up a few different palettes as I didn’t know exactly which one would work out. And one of the palettes I ended up getting was the Wet n Wild Not a Basic Peach eyeshadow palette, which includes 10 shades and costs $4.99.

Claims from Wet n Wild

Powerfully pigmented, buttery-soft, glides on like a dream. That’s what we dreamed up with our reformulated Color Icon eyeshadows. Our reformulated Color Icon hues come in a mix of coveted colors, from shimmery daytime hues to sultry shades for cocktail hours—including new matte transitional shades for impeccable blending.

I really love the matte shadows in this palette but the glittery shades (#7 & #8) are insanely chunky. I would only use these shades with a finger to avoid fall out. Especially with #8 which didn’t swatch the greatest but it does look nice when applied to the eyes. #5 the light bluish-teal is nice but you have to build up the shadow for any pigmentation. I would rather reach for the individual shadow from NYX called Mermaid to get a similar tone as compared to this one.

Overall, I think the palette is nice, but you can find better palettes from the drugstore than this one. However, if you’re in a hurry and there aren’t a lot of cruelty free options at your local drugstore but this is available it won’t do you dirty. I have worn this palette quite a few times and can always make some nice looks out of it. But given a choice between this palette and a ColourPop one… I would go with my ColourPop palettes.

Love ya,
