Man, Wet n’ Wild eyeshadow palettes are like cat nip for me. I went to a different Walgreens than I regularly frequent and they had ALL THE BRIGHT THINGS so like a deranged lunatic I skulked around the makeup section and quite literally collected armfuls of makeup. Eventually the fog of insanity cleared and I started questioning my life choices but that’s neither here nor there. What’s really important is that now I have swatches! Beautiful bright swatches! Huzzah!
All swatches are acquired by swirling my finger in the pan 3 times and then swiping once on bare skin. All photos are in natural light with a swatch photo in indirect sunlight and a swatch photo in direct sunlight as well. I always feel like I explain this process very awkwardly but that’s just how I roll yo.
There are three 8-pan palettes that are all from the Venice Beach/Vice City collection. (in case you were wondering, Googling “wet n wild vice city” didn’t really bring up the results I was anticipating. So that was fun.)
Overview: These three palettes are consistent with WnW quality. They’re soft and pigmented but fairly chalky. There is some fall out during application. I found the colors I’ve used so far to be easy to blend and work with.

I also purchased two 6-pan palettes from what I believe is the Silver Lake collection.
Overview: I haven’t used any of these shades yet but they swatched just like the shades in the 8-pan palettes. Overall they felt smooth and soft and a bit chalky.
Lastly, I found another of the Fergie Center Stage 10-pan palettes. I’ve been craving green eyeshadow lately and it’s not a color I have a lot of in my collection so I was excited to find this palette.
Overview: This palette is quite similar in consistency to the rest of the palettes swatched in this post. Some of the shadows have a slightly more silicone feel than the other palettes. I can’t speak to the actual application yet.

These are ALL limited edition palettes. WnW limited eyeshadow can be really difficult to find so if you see something that you want in these photos, may the odds be ever in your favor. As is normal with WnW, these are all pretty reasonably priced. 8-pan’s were $4.99, 6-pans were $3.99 and the 10-pan was $7.99.
If I were to recommend one single palette here I would say go for Boardwalk Boozing. It has the best color range but I really really like all three of the 8-pan palettes.
I was experimenting with the Vice City palettes this morning so I have a few photos of how these might look on your eyes if, like me, you’re in no way shape or form a make up artist. MUA’s, you can probably get these colors to pop with your MUA black magic.
There are also a few shades across these palettes that are similar so here are a few swatches in case you were curious.
Do you think you’ll pick up anything from Wet n’ Wild this summer? Do you also have a weird addiction to WnW palettes or is it just me?
