In the Spotlight - Wet n Wild Holiday 2013
THE LIMITED EDITION Wet n Wild In the Spotlight collections for this holiday have already started popping up in local drugstores. This collection is simply sparkling with three limited edition Coloricon Eyeshadow Palettes, as well as six glitter polishes – perfect to to get your shine on this holiday! I have the three Coloricon Palettes to share with you today, which contain a mix of three glitter eye shadows, three satin (some with micro glitter) and two matte shades in each. The palettes are simply beautiful! The excellent mix of finishes would not only work on their own, but combining different shades from each palette will give even more variety to my holiday (or everyday) eye look!

I did not test these yet because I wanted to get swatches out for you, but here are some notes. I swatched all of the above with two “swipes”, one to deposit the color, and the other to even it out a bit.
Glitter - The glittery eye shadows (top row) are not incredibly pigmented, but would work well to top off a a base. I am not sure how much fallout they will have once on the lids, but they were very smooth and did not feel chunky, so that is a good sign. They are too glittery for a typical highlight, but of course this is a holiday collection so getting a little glittery in the highlight area is very appropriate. I will probably wear them mostly to accent the center of the lid to finish off an eye look, or I will pat it on top of a base if I am in a glittery mood!
Satin – The satin shades in these palettes (second rows) are smooth and buttery like a typical Wet n Wild eye shadow. I found the color payoff to be very good when swatching. A few of them have an an extra dimension of micro glitter, but it is very small, so I don’t think fallout will be a big deal for these.
Matte – The matte shades (third rows) are beautiful additions to these palettes. They swatched fairly similarly and very smoothly, with the matte blue from Lights, Camera, Attraction swatching a little less smoothly.
Overall, just in swatching these, I am pleased with the quality of the eyeshadows, and I love the variety in each palette. Although I am not a huge glitter fan, these ones are soft, and I think they are perfect to add to a holiday collection! I think my favorite two palettes are No Neutral Ground and A Great Glistener.
