Let’s talk wild goose chases. The ones frequently taken by makeup junkies who just really have to have Wet n Wild’s $4.99 limited edition 8-pan palette shadows for Holiday season 2012.
Oh, yes, that was me dashing and darting from CVS and Walgreens in a multi-city pursuit to find the set of 3 palettes that have garnered the love and admiration of the online beauty community. It took a couple of weeks, but I finally found two of the three palettes and ended up bringing home Sparkle ‘Til Morning.
This palette just spoke to me. “Sheila, you can’t say no.” Really, I swear I hear those words coming from the shadows.I decided on this palette because shimmery golds, coppers, browns, and teals are just my style and I can see a lot of use coming from this set.
True to Wet n Wild shadow form, these are incredibly pigmented, if a bit powdery.
The shadows wear like iron, and when used with a shadow primer will have you sparkling ’til way in the morning.
These palettes are rare and increasingly hard to find, but definitely worth the chase. If you need help finding a store where these are sold, check out the interactive maps at Nouveau Cheap (which are an incredibly fabulous idea).
