The Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Color Icon Eyeshadow Quads featured in this post were purchased by me. All opinions are 100% my own.
Hats off to Wet n Wild for stepping up their creative game big time in recent months, bringing us several fun and beautiful makeup collections. While they’re limited edition, they’re worth checking out, the most recent being the hummingbird inspired Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy collection.
The Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy collection is a full lineup that include brushes, lip products, blushes, highlighters, lip scrubs and 3 irresistible eyeshadow quads. You can purchase the entire collection from Wet n Wild at a nice discount of $34, but I had my eye on these three quads specifically. From left to right they are Hasta La Costa Baby, Flock Party and Stop Ruffling My Feathers.
Gorgeous, no? And I am still sincerely digging the new packaging from Wet n Wild. The small eyeshadow sets used to be trios and now they all come with a fourth transition shade, which I dig big time. I always use a matte neutral in my crease when I’m applying eyeshadow and it’s so cool that Wet n Wild has included them in their eyeshadow, which have remained at the same price of $2.99 per quad. When applying these shadows I don’t go by the labels that are embossed on the shadows themselves, not even with the transition shade!
Hasta La Costa Baby – This collection includes two vivid shades of aqua and purple.
Flock Party – My eye was specifically drawn to the magenta in this quad!
Stop Ruffling My Feathers – Shimmery rose golds? Yes!
For this eye look I used shadows from all three quads. I’ll admit the textures are different than other Color Icon shadows in my collection! I’m not sure if it’s because they’re limited edition but they feel a bit dryer, except for the shadows in Stop Ruffling My Feathers which have a more creamy texture.
My Final Thoughts: Wet n Wild Flights of Fancy Color Icon Eyeshadow Quads are lovely. The question is, are they as great as the Shayla x ColourPop Perception Pressed Shadow Palette? No! While they’re still heavy on the pigment, they’re a bit dry!
