Wet n Wild Color Icon Petal Plusher Review + Swatches

 I bought several Wet n Wild palettes a while ago. You can read about the haul here. I reviewed all the trios here, but I haven't reviewed the 8 pan palettes, so I will start a series of posts in which I will review them. I only got 3 of them(hoping to get the new Limited Edition ones soon!) so it will be split in 3 posts.

 Starting up with Petal Plusher, which could be the only one I might be biased about, because of the purples and pinks. However, if a makeup item is purple, the way it performs will matter so much more to me, because it's my favorite color. Basically, I'm harder on purples!!

First picture taken with natural light, second with flash.

Left column:

Brow bone color: This one is extremely powdery and it makes it really hard for the color to show up, actually not just really hard, it just doesn't happen. However, when I swatch it on my finger I can see there's some opalescent effect to it. It's a shame that the opalescent effect doesn't show and that the color itself doesn't show, otherwise it would be super pretty. So much fall out, it's crazy.

It's hard to get it to show up, but it's definitely buildable and when some color is achieved, it's a really pretty color, that I actually don't have in any other palette. It's really sweet, pretty and girly.

Crease: Such a pretty shimmery purple, of course this one, being a darker color- shows up much more and it's definitely buildable. As usual, there is some fall out. I keep saying that most of them have fall out, but it's a thing with Wet n Wild. But they are pretty, so I forgive them, most of the time...

Definer: Such a blue purple, gorgeous color, great for the crease, shimmery too, pigmented and definitely buildable.

Right column: 

Brow bone color: This is like a platinum/silver pink, really pigmented, buildable and pretty. This would work great as a brow highlight, so brow bone is the place to wear it, also inner eye corner. Then again, you can wear all of these colors wherever you want, it's up to you and the look you want to get. Don't stick to the areas they recommend to wear them, spice it up! Try this as a crease! haha!

Eyelid : This is such a pretty pink brown, really pigmented and buildable. You could make a look with the brow bone color from this column,the eyelid color from the Left column and this as a crease color and make it really work appropriate, sweet and feminine.

Crease: This is a super super dark glittery brown, really pigmented and buildable. Careful when working with it, because a little bit, will show up A LOT! This color would be perfect for a fun, night out brown smoky eye.

Define: Gorgeous glittery black! Perfect for a sexy smoky eye! Same as the crease color, super pigmented and not forgiving, so as I said before careful when using it, because if you are not going for super dramatic, that's what you will get.

 Overall this is a great palette, really fun to work with. Some colors might give you a headache, others might be dangerous to work with and others fun and user friendly. In spite of the lack of pigmentation from some colors, I still like working with this palette. The colors are bright and might not be the right fit for someone that doesn't venture much into color, however you can still pull off at least a couple of non dramatic, work friendly looks. And if you are looking for drama you can get that too for sure!!

 I love Wet n Wild, because it puts good products, into hands that might not be able to afford the most expensive makeup out there. Even if you are not really lucky with money at the moment or have other priorities that take your money, you still deserve to look pretty and wear makeup, so I appreciate all the companies that produce quality products for a lower price, that can be available to those that have more important things to take care of than makeup.

 I definitely recommend picking this palette up if you want to have some fun with color. If you are looking for a more neutral look, I would advice to go with a neutral trio, so you don't spend extra money in shades you might not use.

 Hope you enjoyed this little review! More coming soon!
