I'm a little late with the Nudey Tuesday for today but thought I'd squeeze it in before it became Wednesday (PST.) I'm going to try to make it as short and non-wordy as possible to make it in time! Anyways, today I'm reviewing Wet 'n' Wild's new Color Icon trio in Silent Night. Reviews for the other shades will be coming soon! =)The Packaging: The three eyeshadows come in a very basic, black plastic palette with a clear lid. A small compartment at the bottom of the palette holds an eyeshadow brush and a sponge applicator.
The Product: Recently, Wet 'n' Wild came out with some new Color Icon palettes containing an upgraded formula that promised 30% better pigmentation than the original. And as promised, Wet 'n' Wild's new Color Icon formula is better than ever. The eyeshadows all contain amazing pigmentation, blend easily, and are very soft. Also, the eyeshadows are a lot less chalky than before which is a major plus!
However, I found the "softness" of the eyeshadows to be a slight issue -they are a bit powdery for my taste and are prone to fallout but still very good for only $2.99.The Color:
1. Browbone- Very pale, frosted peach with shimmer
2. Crease- Matte, dark bark brown with pale gold shimmer
3. Eyelid- Slightly frosted medium taupe with an almost rosy/pinked "glow" to it and shimmer

Overall: I already liked the "old" Color Icon eyeshadows but these blow those out the water! They're definitely one of the better drugstore eyeshadows when it comes to color payoff and I love the wide selection of shades. I also think the price is just right because they're very affordable and are a great value considering the product you're getting. Most of the time, when I pay so low for a beauty product, it's really "too good to be true." That's not the case with Wet 'n' Wild's Color Icon eyeshadows -they work and won't put a dent in your wallet.
