Drugstore Dud or Delight? Wet n Wild

Spoiler alert: it’s good

IMG_5322

I picked up the Not a Basic Peach palette from Wet n Wild in my Target Haul last month and it has become a staple in my makeup bag. The mattes are nice and blendable without being too dry and the shimmers are smooth and pigmented. There are a few shades with glitter flecks and they haven’t given me much fallout thankfully!

The shadows last pretty well on my eyelids, which are getting a bit more oily as the summer arrives. I’d say about 8 hours without primer and there’s a bit of creasing. With my Sephora Collection Tinted and Cooling Eye Primer, I can get 10 or more hours with no creasing! Overall, I think this is a lovely palette, and it’s only $4.95! Let’s take a look at some swatches.

Aren’t these colors fun? I love that you can create a basic every day eye or add some pops of color. The purplish color on the bottom row has been a lovely outer corner shade when I do want to infuse a little color into my look. The blue looks great along the bottom lash line too. It’s a pretty versatile palette.

The two lightest shades are a bit hard to see on my skintone, but I like the beige on the bottom row for blending my crease and outer corner color together. It adds a tiny bit of definition without any darkness. The lighter shimmer is great for highlighting the center of the lid or the browbone.

I’m clearly loving this palette, so I’d love to know if you have more recommendations from Wet n Wild! What’s your current favorite palette?

    Pretty! This palette looks like a drugstore dupe for the Urban Decay Beached palette. The shades aren’t 100% dupes but the color options seem close enough.
