I wore the Wet n' Wild "Don't Steal my Thunder" palette yesterday. I have mixed thoughts on this one.
Swatched over UDPP
MAC cream color base in Black on lid
Shade 1 (the highlight shade) on browbone
Shade 3 (lid color) in crease area
Shade 2 (crease color) on lid
Fyrinnae Immortality patted over Shade 3
L'oreal Double Extend mascara in Carbon Black
Meow Brow Beater in Black
Inside with flash, taken around 6pm.
This one I snapped outside, no flash, around 12:30, shortly after I applied my shadow. Weird light - I was in the shade of my garage but the sun was insanely bright. The shadow really did look this dark in person after I applied it though!
Shade 3 is a matte black, but it's not super flat. I thought it looked ok but it desperately needed a little sparkle, and Immortality just happened to be sitting on the counter waiting for me. I patted a bit on over the WnW black, just enough to give it a little kick.
I think I should've skipped the silvery shade, which really didn't do anything to make me happy. I thought using the MAC black cream would help keep it looking black, but after a while I thought it looked far more super dark blue than black. I think the silvery shade added to the blue effect. I used to put dark brown shadow under black to help keep it looking not so blue. I think I'll try that next time. The shadow did crease, but that's from the UDPP.
I did like the shadow overall - while this certainly wouldn't be the first thing I'd grab, it would be easy to toss in my purse to use for touch ups. The $4.99 price is part of the attraction - anyone on a budget will appreciate these palettes.
Thanks for looking.
