BREAKING: The Wet n Wild Matte 8-pan, baked shadows & LE Wild Shines have landed!


UPDATE: FOR CLOSE-UP PHOTOS AND SWATCHES OF THE BAKED EYESHADOW PALETTES, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

I want to thank those of you who gave me a heads-up about the NEW limited edition Wild Shine collection called Flirting With Fate. I had NO idea about this collection of polishes, and it looks to be ALL NEW shades (no re-releases!). A HUGE thanks to longtime reader @ashleyjazzybear for tweeting me a link to Destany's post, which has great swatches of many of the shades. Have YOU spotted this collection in your area yet?

Are you ready for your first glimpse at the much-talked-about Wet n Wild ColorIcon ALL-MATTE 8-PAN? All thanks to my lovely reader niftyBA, I've got a pic for you! NiftyBA spotted the display (which is called the Walgreens Beauty Bar--click here for details) at her local Walgreens, so IT HAS OFFICIALLY LANDED, folks!

As you can see, the ColorIcon Baked Palettes are on top, and the Matte 8-pan is in the lower right corner, next to the core-collection 8-pans.

Thank you SO much, NiftyBA, for the awesome scoop!!

Have YOU spotted the Walgreens Beauty Bar at your local Wags yet? NiftyBA is literally the first person I've heard from who has seen these products in her area so far, so I guess it's time to create a new sightings map!

Also, have you spotted Flirting With Fate in your area? If so, which drugstore?

  7. Problem with this holiday palettes is they dont stock too many and when they run out they never re-stock them!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Welp now I have a reason to stop by Walgreens for the next few weeks to see if I spot these. I just might grab all 4 of those palettes.

  9. If only there were Walgreens in Canada, I'd be on my way to pick up that matte palette! :(

  10. Aww! No sight of these yet at my Walgreens. And I was just there yesterday! but I'm about to start checking daily, lol! I really want those baked palettes! Thanks for the info!

    ReplyDelete

  13. I CANNOT wait to see these new products!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I swear they're not stocking these near me. I haven't seen them yet.

    ReplyDelete
  15. see...its about to be Christmas 2010 madness already. lol! I need ALL of the mattes.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I was hoping that the matte palette would be neutral, but I'm excited for others who want a colorful good-quality matte palette. I'll look to the baked palettes instead!

  17. Went to walgreens tonight to pick up my free blushes from covergirl (gotta love coupons!) and I looked for these and they weren't out yet. I did see the see the Flirting with Fate polishes though. Gah, I want that palette so bad I never got my hands on one of the limited edition 3 pan palettes they had last time :/. Took me forever to one of each of the 8 pan palettes and I had to take a slightly crumbled one because it was the last one in stock of comfort zone. Will be interesting to see swatches of the baked eyeshadows. My experience with baked cosmetics hasn't been great. *drools over the LE matte 8 pan* Orange eyeshadow, teal, and bright blue?! *cries* I want it!

  18. Yay! I haven't seen these yet, but I haven't been out looking. I don't have a Walgreens real close to me. But maybe I'll have to go search for one! The baked shadows interest me more than the matte palette.

  19. omg those baked palettes r beautiful! I must own them!

  20. I'm glad the matte palette has landed but I'm kinda disappointed in the shades selected.

    I'm certain that is a black matte shade in the bottom right, which you already get in Blue Had Me At Hello. I was hoping for the middle matte shade from the Vanity palette, but it looks like they went with the middle matte shade from the Greed palette, which is not as versatile in my opinion. Too warm for a lot of skin tones.

    I am glad they included the white matte shade though!

    Hopefully, they will reconsider matte shades for a permanent 8 pan matte palette if they make one

  21. I love the baked but the matte is dissapointing with the color choices ;(

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ahh, I have to have it but I must say I'm a bit disappointed with the color selection. Its a little bit too out there for me but I guess it is a fun and cheap palette to have. That brown baked palette looks great though!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I need, need, need to find those baked shadows near me!

    ReplyDelete
  24. *crossing my fingers* VT only has 1 Wags and it's in my town! I'm lemming the baked shadows and maybe the mattes too. Oh Boy!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I dont really hold out much hope of seeing any new WNW in my area. I try to check other drugstores when the hubby and I are traveling around but he just doesn't get it. Lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. i found the entire flirting with fate wild shine collection two weeks ago at my local ocean state job lots store (in portsmouth, nh) for only 88¢ apiece! thanks so much for posting about this-- i googled and googled and couldn't find any info about this collection. mystery solved!

    ReplyDelete
  27. the baked shadows look amazing! i'll have to run to walgreens tomorrow and see if they popped up there. i was really excited for the matte palette, but those bright colors really aren't my thing and the neutrals arent calling to me either :\ oh well, more money to spend on the baked shadows! thanks for the heads up G!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I found them yesterday! I was disappointed in the matte palette. I'm a neutral girl and the neutrals were basically dupes of the mattes in the vanity palette (sigh). But I did pick up the baked palette in browns and a super creamy olive pencil,which is nice b/c I don't have this color in my VAST pencil collection (very nice base for my green looks). Maybe they'll put out a palette of matte neutrals next?

  29. I checked at my local Walgreens today, (2 different ones actually) and neither had the new Wet n Wild. I asked though, and the gal at the cosmetics counter said they get a Christmas shipment in tomorrow and another on Friday. She thinks they will be in one of those shipments. So if you haven't found them yet, check again later this week! :)

  30. After NiftyBA said she spotted them, I went to that Walgreens and got the shadows. But I visited 2 other Walgreens before going to THAT one. The second one had a full display of the Ice Baby. I kindly and will a bit more zeal than necessary, took the entire collection. :)

  31. I am a little underwhelmed by the matte palette, even though I was SO excited for it. I will probably still buy it, but a lot of the shades look like repeats to me. The right browbone looks like the matte browbone shade in the vanity palette, the peachy eyelid shade looks like one from the envy palette, the matte black looks like the blue had me at hello palette, and the two top left colors look just like the two left colors in the pride palette. That means only 3 of the 8 shades are actually "new," and at that, the purple reminds me of a more matte version of a shade in the pushing petals palette and the blueish teal looks like a matte version of the blue had me at hello color. That just leaves the deep matte brown, which has been done a million times before (though I will never turn my head to deep matte browns, I do love them!).

  32. omg!!!!!!!! i must have these!!! i go into my local walgeens 5 times a week lol So ill def know if and when they get it. All of their display space is filled up right now except where they had the polish duo sets(a fast dry polish and a fast dry top coat). I wonder if its going to go where the polishes were :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ommmmg...I think I am about to pass out from being overly excited about those new palettes!!!!!!!!! I hope that they come out near me soon! You never know!!!

  36. I was in Walgreens today,in San Antonio,TX,and happened to notice the beauty bar,stocked with the baked eyeshadows and matte shadow pallette. I just went in with my hubby to pick up a few things,and told him I was going to look around,and I went stalking for the Ice Baby nail colors.Still no sight of the nail colors,however,I am feeling the urge to ask the cosmetician when I go in next time,if she can check in the back for me.There was another Walgreens truck pulled up next to the store this afternoon,as we pulled in,lots of deliveries being made. I hope I will score the Ice Baby's!

  37. I looked everywhere for both the Ice Baby polishes and the baked and matte palettes and finally found them! I bought an extra of everything so if anyone is interested let me know! mallory.peterson@live.com

  38. I tried mine out today, the green shade is terrible! It didn't even last the day even with UDPP under it.

    Drugstore eyeshadow is just where I draw the line, I guess.
