Wet N Wild | Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette " Blue Had Me At Hello " | Review + Photos

Yep! I'm back with another Wet N Wild Eyeshadow post :o) I can't help it, I think there's just something inside of me that makes me HAVE to try all of these lol. I actually saw the " Blue Had Me At Hello " palette swatched on another blog and immediately fell in love with the colors. Needless to say when I spotted it at Walgreens I gave right into temptation! This palette features eight shadows, they also come in 2 more color options but this was the prettiest to me by far. 

Also, I'm still practicing on my eyeshadow applications, I think I still need more work in the blending department but I've definitely come a long way. I still haven't quite got the concept of applying color between my brow bone and above my crease ( highlight ) , my sister swears it looks creepy without eyeshadow there but I'm just not good at that so I skip it :-/ plus it's not easy to find a "brown girl" friendly highlight. Anyway check the pics and my review below! 



Glow: I really love the blues & turquoise in this palette, the colors have a tropical feel to them. Also they're more pigmented than some of the other WnW palettes.

Glare: Well a couple of the shades are really sparkly but the sparkles disappear once you apply them on your skin and that kinda sucks b/c they look so pretty in the pan. Also the eyeshadow is kinda crumbly when lifting it with a brush and blending was still a task.

Would I Recommend It? I would! I'd also recommend using a base. I used my white NYX jumbo pencil on my eyelid as a base before applying the shadows and it made a huge difference. The colors were way more vibrant.

Overall Glam: It's a decent inexpensive palette, I bought it at Walgreens for $4.99. Some of the lighter shades are still a hit & miss but that's just the breaks when it comes to Wet N Wild.

Product(s) in this post were purchased by me. 


  1. I love how the bright the colours come out, and your brows are absolutely gorgeous!

  2. Odara, to make your highlight color work you need to get a transition color. That is a color similar to your skintone that you blend between the crease and browbone and it makes the look smoother. Try Brown Script or Saddle by MAC.

  3. I forgot to add, the look is really pretty and I jelliss your brows.

  4. Ohhhhhh!!! Thanks Shuggggg! Someone else mentioned Saddle by MAC too I'll go peep those colors this weekend and thanks I finally learned to fill in my brows w/o looking like a clown lol

  5. What do you use on them? I need to find something good to fill mine.

  6. I just use a brow powder by Jordana it's really cheap but it works and I use a stiff angled brush to outline and a lash/brow shader to shade and blend the color. It looks like a mascara wand
