I am really impressed with Wet and Wild Color Icon 5-Pan Shadow Palette,I love all the colors, it is easy to apply, goes on smooth and not too dark,easy to choose how light or dark you want it, disappointed it had no applicator brush but it is still a high quality product, has a nice designed plastic container that fits easy into any make-up bag, you won't be disappointed with Wet and Wild Color Icon 5-Pan Shadow Palette,I would recommend to anyone who wants high quality eye shadow palette, with 5 lovely colors to chose from.
I had such high hopes for these small palettes s they seemed the perfect size for travel. The formula, however, is just plain terrible. It is impossible to build up some of the shades enough to even make them visible on the eyes. I realize the formula has changed to a totally vegan formula, which I appreciate. But they are just too patchy and hard to build up to even create a look that is wearable. The shimmers are so chunky and dry its impossible to get them to stick to the eyes, even with a glitter primer. Save your money and buy the Elf bite size palettes. You'll be so much more satisfied. Really sad, because WnW is on of my favorite affordable brands. Back to the drawing board with these, WnW.

I bought this little palette for the glitter shade in the middle. I get so many compliments when I wear it, it's so pretty. it is messy so I recommend you do your eyes before your foundation.

I have been using Wet N Wild products since grade school. Back in the day I used to do the Chola look with the dark liner and dark lipstick or concealer, lol that's how old I am. And then I used to use their taupe brow pencil that you could also use as a lip liner. But I've used their eyeshadows for years now. I used to do makeup for showgirls, and these eyeshadows were so pretty and pigmented, a little really did go a long way, and it still stuck on with some white eyeshadow or some concealer! Nowadays we are really lucky to have better product knowledge and better formulations. I have used the Walking On Eggshells palette for a very long time, even when I was living a more lavish lifestyle than I do now, this was always in my makeup arsenal. Like I mentioned, a bit of white eyeshadow as the base and this stuff did not budge at all. The one I have bought more recently seems much more pigmented and the shades seem even prettier. I do use a good eyeshadow base when I use a matte color, but the matte shades aren't even a true matte finish. They're more like a matte-shimmer finish. I've tried all kinds of methods with these eyeshadows to see which ones work together and which ones don't work as well, and they all have different finishes and all are very pretty. So my recommendation is: prep your skin with a good serum and moisturizer the right way (letting your skin dry in between putting on your serum-moisturizer-primer) and use a good eyeshadow base (even concealer works as a good one!) and your eyes will come out beautiful. I have also found that the Wet N Wild eyeshadow brushes are really nice to pair with the eyeshadow palettes.

The glitter fallout starts before you even finish applying to your lids. Very messy. If you like glitter all over the place, you'll like this. If you don't like glitter, don't buy this. The payoff is not as nice as the other pallets. The non-glittery colors are ok.

Heard so many good things. BAD color pay off. It took me about 15-20 mins to blend the dark color for my outer corner. Horrible.

This is a great palette with great, pigmented colors. Would definitely recommend for any skill level :)

This has very little to no kick up in the pans. It was well pigmented. The color story works well altogether to make one cohesive look without needing an additional palette to complete a pretty eye look. It blends well. The cost is low and the packaging is minimalistic. I haven't had a bad palette from this series of palettes so far.
I'm usually more of a high-end eyeshadow user, but I was curious, and I'm glad I was. Because this was so good, especially compared to it's price, I've since ordered more palettes from Wet N Wild. Better do exists but I've also payed multiple times this price for shadows that this formula is just as good as too. If you're tight on money this is a good brand to go with. I especially like one thing that makes it unique is that they have such minimal packaging insomuch as it comes just as is, taped shut, instead of an outer box, dividing paper, mirror, etc. I'm sure that helps keeps the cost low but it's also better for the planet.

I have several different colors of the five pan color icon palettes from wet and wild but the petalette palette isn't as pigmented

These shadow palettes are so great! Very pretty! Great formula! The color combinations make it easy for many looks! Great to use for shadow lining and defining too!

Nice color selection.
Rebecca The Nurse from GA
For the price, this is a high quality color that remained ON thru a 10 hour shift. The sparkle is amazing as well as the deep taupe color for the outside of your lid

I really like the colors, but they are a bit too glittery.

I had high hopes for the green shade but it actually was too subtle.
TravelinChick from Nashville, TN
All the colors and all the glitter were absolutely beautiful...Everything I look for when looking for eye shadow! My only wish is that the colors were a little easier to apply, and would stick to the eyes a little more. Beyond that, I really enjoyed using this eye shadow and had fun making some smokey eyes with the variations I now have in my makeup bag.
Jmolina from Texas
Wow wow WOW! What an all around great pallet. The eggshell color is phenomenal and really opens up the eyes! Best purchase I've ever made! Don't think, just get it! It's priced great as well.

I'm obsessed with the five pan pallet, it's so compact and easy to use! And brownie points because it's perfect to travel with:)
piperk from san marcos
They are so pigmented and stay in so long. Im a d1 athlete and it stayed on for a whole 4 hour practice through sweat and everything!
heylookitsmelissa from Cincinnati OH
These palettes are GAME CHANGING! They are affordable, versatile, pigmented, and compact to fit in your purse so you can easily take them on the go. With so many options to choose from at such a great price, why only choose one? I love the classic shades that can spiced up with some color and depth to transition from day to night.

I don't like this eyeshadows, the shimmers shadows crumbles all over the place.
lcm371 from Downers Grove, IL
The Color Icon palette is incredible. The matte shadows are pigmented and blend easily and the shimmers make the look 'pop'. No fall out either. Great packaging for travel as well.
Lauren from Dallas
I'm really surprised by this palette! I thought it might have been just YouTube hype but I just bought it and it's actually great. The colors are beautiful and the darkest brown is slightly satin matte which I prefer. Great for an every day eye look.
Jaybeamua from Madison wi
I really love the color pay off of these shadow pallets! These are a huge step up from other products I've tried of WW. I also think that it's super cool they incorporated shades that you can only use on the face! I used a few for blush.. an it GAVE HONEY! 10/10 WW!!

I got this whole Color Icon collection for the purpose of a review and honestly it's soooo pretty! I really loved the pigmentation and color stories presented in these pallets, and I cannot wait for more from Wet n Wild!
