Bang for Your Buck

I had read a couple of rave reviews in the blogosphere of Wet 'N Wild's Color Icon collection eyeshadow pallet so I thought I'd try it out for myself.

I bought the one on on the left called "Greed"

My mom bought "Lust"

Each palette comes with 3 matte and 3 highly-pigmented shades. Now when I think of Wet 'N Wild I think cheap and bad quality because of the low pricing and also because I bought a nude lipstick when I was 13 and it looked pasty on me and hardly stayed on, it was basically crap. I thought I should give Wet 'N Wild another chance. After all, it had been a loooong time. I'm so glad I did. I bought mine at Wal-mart after searching for it at London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart and Superstore (in Canada) and they must have re-vamped their make-up line or something because I was super-impressed with the product and now prefer this eyeshadow over the MAC ones I've been using, as does my mom. The shadow goes on super smooth, is easy to blend and lasts all day. Surprised? I was, too. And it's under $6.00 CDN. Definitely a steal. I am now a huge fan and will continue to try their other products. And I won't put a dent in my wallet!

These palettes look a lot like the limited edition things by MAC!
I posted my review on the To the Beach collection today so please have a look!

I bought Greed and Lust palettes like a month ago and I am loving them. The shimmery colors are not that pigmented but I mean, they are that cheap that I did not bother me lol
