Wet n Wild released some Holiday 2012 8-pan eyeshadow palettes. I found them at my local CVS a week ago and saw that it was on their own special display stand. There were a total of three palettes: Shimmer the Night Away, Sparkle 'Til Morning, and Drinking a Glass of Shine. Since these are limited edition, I wanted to swatch them for you ASAP! Below is the Sparkle 'Til Morning palette. I also swatched Shimmer the Night Away here.
This palette contains mainly neutral browns with a kick of green/blue shade. If you like your neutrals and everyday easy look, this is a good palette for that.
swatched once on bare skin, no primer
Left Column, top to bottom:
1. sheer shimmering champagne
2. gold sheen
3. copper sheen
4. teal emerald sheen
Right Column, top to bottom:
1. rose gold sheen
2. gold sheen with red shimmers
3. auburn brown sheen
4. black with red shimmers
Overall, all of these eyeshadows were really pigmented. The swatches you see are without primer and applied with one swipe. They also last very well on my eyes without smearing or fading. I really enjoy the combination of sheen and shimmers. I personally don't like large glitters and this palette does not contain it. For $4.99 a palette, this is a big steal! Though none of the colors are outstandingly unique, I feel this palette will be greatly used for many occasions. You get a fair amount 8.5g of product. It also includes a dual ended brush (sponge and bristle applicators), but it is one of the worse tools I have seen. Despite the fact I will toss it out, I still think $4.99 for 8 eyeshadows is a very good deal.
