Wet n Wild 'I'm Getting Sunburned' Color Icon Trio | Review

I've had a slight obsession with Wet n Wild Cosmetics after I tried one of their Mega-Last lipsticks. Ever since then, my greedy little hands have been curious to see what other products Wet n Wild have to offer. I own two of their eyeshadows so far; one is a single shadow in the shade 'Suede' and the other is a Color Icon Eyeshadow in the shade 'Walking On Eggshells'. That palette was very neutral, so I decided to experiment with something a little different and that is how I stumbled across the 'I'm Getting Sunburned' Color Icon Eyeshadow trio. 

There are three colours in the palette (hence the word trio -  nice, Miah). The first colour appears to be a medium pink for the browbone, the second is a dark shimmery brown for the crease and the last is a warm gold for the eyelid. My favourite colour is the dark brown, as it's perfect for a smokey eye look and it's buildable too. The gold is great for an inner corner highlight as well as to create a halo eye. Something that I noticed was that the pink turned out to be a lot lighter than I expected. As you can see in the photos below, it looks like a frosty blue. I also struggle to blend it, because when I do, the colour disappears. The brown and the gold are absolutely perfect, though! 

The packaging is sleek and has an acrylic 'lid' so you can see the colours. Note that colours are not always how they appear to be, so it's good to swatch in store. The palette comes with a mini angled brush and a sponge for application, though I usually just apply the eyeshadow with brushes instead of the applicators that tend to come with the palettes. 

Wet n Wild is known for their pigmentation, and the quality of this product is almost as good as some of my Urban Decay eyeshadows. Not only are they affordable, but they suit every skin tone. I'm happy with the palette - for the price, it gives a ton of pigmentation that a lot of high end brands don't offer. In the pictures, I am wearing the "pink" shade as an all over lid colour, the dark brown as a crease colour and the gold as an inner corner highlight and underneath my brow, which unfortunately didn't show up that well on camera. Overall, the shadows are buttery, buildable, blendable and long-lasting!
