All of these new products for 2014 are PERMANENT (not limited edition). So I will not be creating interactive sightings maps for these new releases, since they'll be available everywhere, eventually. They're already starting to pop up at Harmon, Bed Bath & Beyond and Christmas Tree Shops across the nation, so keep your eyes peeled!
So let's take a look at the newest addition to the Coloricon 8-pan family:
NEW Wet n Wild Coloricon 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Poster Child
(retail: $4.99, 0.3 oz)
Let's start with the left side of the palette:
The right side of the palette:
Just like with the left side, the right side of this palette works much better over primer. Again, none of the shadows here have a texture that is too soft/crumbly and with the exception of the blue on the far right in my pic above, none were too dry/hard. That deeper blue shade is a tiny bit dry, so don't let your primer set too much before you apply that one or you might encounter patchy application. Just like with the left side of the palette, a few of these shades kick up some fallout when you're picking up color with your brush, so be prepared for that. My favorites here are the two middle shades above--that lovely seafoam green and cornflower blue. I can't wait to play around and create some eye looks for you with those two shades!
And for those of you who are curious, the Wet n Wild limited edition Coloricon Trio in Army Brat (which came out in Fall of 2013) is NOT identical to the first three shades in the Poster Child 8-pan:
No dupes here. Yes, some shades are similar, but nothing identical.
I can't give you a final verdict on this palette yet since I have not tested it for my usual 2-3 weeks, however I can give you my initial impressions! If you loved the limited edition I Heart Matte palette, I think you will probably love this one too--it's just as colorful and fun, in my opinion. Overall, none of the shades in this palette are very heavy on shimmer or sparkle--most have a soft satin finish with just a bit of sparkle. A few shades are powdery and kick up a bit of fallout when you're picking up color with your brush, but none are too soft/crumbly or dry/hard (with the exception of the dark blue shade, which is a tad dry). I would certainly advise applying eyeshadow primer before you use any of the colors in this palette--on their own they're not pigmented enough if you're big on color (and I'm assuming that if you're drawn to this palette, you ARE big on color!).
Again, this is a permanent (not limited edition) addition to the Coloricon 8-pan range, so you will eventually be able to find it wherever Wet n Wild is sold in your area. I will be sure to post some eye looks with this palette in the future!
What do you think? Are any of these colors jumping out at you? Do you think you'll give this one a shot when it shows up in your area? Please check back for more Wet n Wild 2014 posts, coming up soon!
