It feels like I’ve reviewed a lot of Wet’n’Wild products on my blog. Looking back I actually have. I recently talked about their Comfort Zone Color Icon Palette and have also featured their Silent Treatment Trio, Kitten and Brulee eyeshadows, Fergie Highlighter, Fergie Gel Liner, Pearlescent Pink Blush, and their Mega Last Lipsticks. Phew! Needless to say I think Wet’n’Wild has a few gems in their line, particularly in the lipstick and eyeshadow category.
The eyeshadows in the Petal Pusher palette have the same soft and buttery, almost crumbly, texture of the Color Icon eyeshadows. This makes them easy to blend but be careful not to overblend or they’ll become muddy.
They last well without a primer and don’t crease for about 6-8 hours. With a primer they don’t crease on me at all. Also remember these are very pigmented (unlike a lot of drugstore eyeshadows) so less is more.
All of them are nicely pigmented. My typical gripe with the W’n’W palettes is that the blackened and dark colors all tend to look the same on the eye and when swatched. For example, a dark purple, blackened plum, and charcoal black will all look the same (you can see it in the swatches above).
A good palette for a good price! The color selection is good so you can get a bunch of looks out of this. Again, I wish it included some mattes but oh, well. I can see this palette being popular because the colors are quite soft and many people find the Comfort Zone palette too dark.
I also used the Petal Pusher Palette on my Valentine’s Makeup post in case you want to see another look. Do you have any favorite Wet’n’Wild products?
