Eye looks using Wet n Wild's LE Go for the Gold collection

I thought I'd post both a cooler and warmer eye look using the Wet n Wild Summer 2011 limited edition Go for the Gold eyeshadow trio, which you can see swatches of here.

First up, here's the warmer look I did, using all three shades in the trio:

For this look, I used the bronze shade on my lid, the lightest shade on my brow bone and inner corner, and the darker brown shade in my outer "v". I also used Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeliner in Bronzed to line both my upper and lower lash line. 

Here's the cooler look I created, using the same trio, The Gilded Age:

For this look, I used just the lightest shade as a wash from lashline to brow, and then the darker brown shade in my crease.

 I also want to show you what the bronzer in this collection, Everything Under the Sun, looks like on my skin:

In this photo, I used Everything Under the Sun on top of my blush (I believe I was wearing a Milani blush that day) and I just lightly applied the bronzer to the tops of my cheekbones. I was surprised, considering how neutral this bronzer appeared when I swatched it several times on my arm, that on my face, there's visible gold shimmer that I did not see when I swatched it on my arm. It definitely gives the skin warmth and a nice glow, but I just want you to be aware that there is gold shimmer in this bronzer.

Have you spotted the Go for the Gold display in your area yet?

  1. OMG, cant wait until these come out. Im buying backups!

  2. Not out yet..went out on a hunt for them last night!

  3. nope not yet. Went out last night looking for them...

  4. Gorgeous! I hope these will be available here in Finland too, but I doubt :/

    - Nea / Fashioned in Finland -

  5. I try not to get to excited for limited edition WNW anymore because we never seem to get any of it in my area. I searched everywhere for the In Bloom collection and the spring palettes and we never got them.

  6. Excited about this line LOVE gold bronzy pinky colors!

  7. I hope to find them soon in CNY. I definately want the bronzer. The gold sparkle will make a pretty look for night time this summer, I imagine!

  8. This is gorgeous! No, I haven't seen them yet.

  9. WOW! I totally want this! And I hardly wear makeup, but this is must have! Thanks for sharing the great looks with this pretty eye makeup!

  10. Hopefully this will come to my Wags. They had the LE pixie palettes back @ Christmas. They never had the Bloom or Vanite collections though. But maybe they will get this I hope because I love them both. Maybe Rite Aid in my next town will get this. The one in my area doesnt get alot. Just for info too I called LA Colors and they said that the 3 shade eyeshadow palettes were NOT Limited Edition. I hope the ones in my area get them back in stock soon!!!

  11. I love the top look! It's lovely.

  12. Ive become "close" with the head beauty girl at Walgreens and I went in yesterday and told her about these.. Shes got my number and is going to call me as soon as they come in. She called me the day the eight pan palettes came out. Hopefully they get them soon. Im going nuts!!!

  13. Very pretty! I love that sunkissed glow :)

  14. I've checked Walgreens, Rite Aid and drove 30min to CVS. No luck! Despite having multiple pharmacies in the area, none of them seem to get the LE items (Why?!). I really want that beautiful eye shadow. Thanks as usualy for the beautiful pics!

  15. I wish they would bring this Trio out again! I missed it! :-(
