Hey pretties! Today I have a Wet n Wild review for you! Now this is the first time I’ve tried this brand as it’s not readily available in the UK. My friend Katie kindly picked up Petal Pusher for me though, on her recent trip to Florida. I’ve heard alot of good things about Wet n Wild so was really excited to try this. Unfortunately, I have to say I was underwhelmed. Many people rave about the pigmentation, but to me it was severely lacking. When I did a little research I saw peoples swatches of this palette look so vivid. What did you use, a paint roller? Now apologies for my terrible swatches today. I still haven’t found the perfect place in my house for a mega accurate representation.
I had to scrub away to get the colour payoff above. The darker colours are alright, its just the lighter ones. I guess people who don’t normally wear bright colours may think the pigmentation is good, but I do regularly wear bright eye shadows from the likes of Sugarpill & indie loose pigment companies, so to me its a little disappointing. The packaging is plastic and cheap looking, but it is a cheap drugstore product, so what do we expect really?
Now don’t get me wrong, I do like this palette. It’s great for a colourful toned down look (you can see my recent FOTD post using this here) but it’s not as “in your face” as I'm used too. One thing which I really love though, is how well the shadows blend! So easily do they just merge together to give beautiful gradients. Not patchy in the slightest. I am going to give the brand a second chance as a few people I’ve spoken too have said Petal Pusher isn’t the best, so if my secret plans (which are not so secret to some of you) go ahead I’ll have to chance to try alot more Wet n Wild next summer.
What do you think of Wet n Wild palettes? Which is your favourite?
