(Updated with swatches) Spotted: Wet n Wild Holiday 2013 In The Spotlight Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette Collection

'Tis the season for the Holiday 2013 collections to start popping up in stores, and today I have the Holiday 2013 Wet n Wild Coloricon eyeshadow palettes to show you!

I want to thank reader and YouTuber prettydaysies for alerting me to the fact that @4seasonsofmakeup78 on Instagram posted these photos today. I asked @4seasonsofmakeup78 if I could share her photos with you, and she graciously said yes (she found this collection at her local HEB, by the way). Take a peek:

Wet n Wild Holiday 2013 In The Spotlight Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette Collection
(retail: $4.99 each)

If these palettes looks familiar to you, there's a reason for that. I'll explain, after the jump...

The top of the display reads:

"The spotlight is on you this season...shine tonight!"

The bottom of the display reads:

"Our rich, blendable, highly-pigmented colors deliver an unparalleled eye-catching finish that's truly out of this world!" 

There are three palettes in this collection. Each palette contains eight shades (six pans). Here's a closer look at two of the palettes:

A Great Glistener and No Neutral Ground

I believe that the third palette (which is in the center in the photo at the top of this post) is called Lights, Camera, Attraction and it contains blues and pinks.

If these palettes look familiar to you, that's because Wet n Wild has released palettes in this format before. Remember the Get Your Look Eyeshadow Medley Palettes from Spring 2013? The format is identical, and at first I thought these these new palettes were just repromotes of the Spring 2013 palettes, but they're not. The product codes are different, and the color combinations are different. In fact, you can see the Spring 2013 palettes over on Emi's blog here (most of the shades were nicely pigmented, by the way, so I hope that these new palettes are as well!).

So what IS the same is the format. You get three sparkly overcoats (top of the palette), three pearl finish shades (middle row) and two mattes (bottom row) in each palette. Again, to get an idea of the finishes, check out Emi's post here, of the Spring 2013 palettes.

UPDATE 9/11/13:

Wet n Wild just sent me press photos of the three palettes in this collection:




And a HUGE thanks to reader Mindy for the following photos. Mindy purchased all three palettes and took the time to swatch them for us!

NOTE: Mindy swatched one swipe of each shadow on top of  Too Faced Shadow Insurance for all of the following photos.

Have any of you spotted this collection in your area yet? Thoughts? I don't know which retailers are going to carry this collection, but obviously these aren't a Walgreens-exclusive like the Spring 2013 palettes, since both Mindy and @4seasonsofmakeup78 spotted them at HEB. If there's enough interest in these, I'll certainly start a sightings map for them--just let me know if you'd like to see one!

Thanks so much, @4seasonsofmakeup78, for letting me share your pictures here today--I really appreciate that! Thanks to @daysies for taking the time to let me know about these, and huge thanks to reader Mindy for taking the time to swatch all three palettes for us!

  5. Those look pretty, I'm digging the teal & bronzey shades in "No Neutral Ground". Hopefully they're as pigmented as the regular color icon line. That was nice of 4seasonsofmakeup78 to let you use her images. :)

  7. I really hope we get these where I am in Florida, we never got the Spring 2013 ones :( I would love to have sightings map for this, it'll probably be my only hope of getting my hands on them.

  8. I hope I get these too near me! I live near Orlando and hardly get any LE Wet N Wild items. I even had to go online to get the Pop Art nail polishes. Why does Florida have to luck out? Especially last year with the Where's the Party pallets last year, I went all over for the Shimmer Night Away pallet and had no luck.

    1. ??? I think that maybe you misread my post? This display was spotted in-store, meaning they're already released! :)

  10. Wait...there was a set released like this one last Spring? How did I miss THAT one!!? Maybe I just forgot about it. I'm SOOOOO happy that these are powders and not cream shadows. WnW doesn't do creams so well. But they are BOSS with powder shadows. :D

  11. I totally want those. I haven't seen them yet, but I'll be on the look-out for them in my area!!

  12. No Neutral Ground is pretty but I don't know if I really want to hunt it down. I have bad luck with these LE things from Wet n Wild! I am a teal fiend though and the glitter overlay shade-things are pretty looking.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'd like to see any of those in Zip Code 19064!

  14. Gorgeous! Going to have to get a friend to send them to me because we never get LE stuff here.

  15. Thank you Mindy for the swatches!
    Thank you G for the post! ^^

    These shadows don't look that sheer like some previous eyeshadows from WnW.

    A Great Glistener looks very nice. I like the bluish/lavender shades. ^^

  18. i think i am going to pass on these. they dont look anything pigmentation wise like the 8 pan palettes from wet n wild. they also dont scream fall or winter to me. i have a feeling that they are going to come out with a holiday limited edition 8 pan palette. i hope anyway!

  20. The pigmentation on these looks great from the photos! I'd love to get my hands on No Neutral Ground. Not sure if I'll be able to get them here in Canada though. Excellent post!

  26. Could someone please post the UPC of all three of these palettes? I am wanting them All and have had no luck finding them. Thank so much!! <3

  27. This is a Holiday collection so my guess is they will start popping up in most stores in mid to late Octobet HEB just seems to be super early with the displays which makes me so sad that I am all the way in Mn boo lol

  28. No neutral ground is for me! Maybe I'll get lucky and Wallgreens will have it out today when I go check for Disney Villains stuff.

  29. I saw all three at my local CVS in North County SD and they scanned $3 with CVS card. I ended up getting Lights, Camera, Attraction.

  31. I found all three palettes yesterday at my local cvs...i swatched them and I wasn't really impressed with the color payoff..I love wnw so I was really disappointed :/ I'm going to swatch them over primer today to see what happens.

  32. I got the palette at my local cvs..I love wnw but I have to be honest the only shades that were really pigmented were the two bottom matte shades, the other shades were not soft and didnt have great color payoff.

  33. I picked up No Neutral Ground and A Great Glistener today at my local Fred Meyer and they're just as beautiful in person. They're also having a sale right now so I got the second one half off. :)
