Wet n Wild has a great fall line up this year! I usually don’t have good luck finding the seasonal LE items from them, so I was excited to find the 5 pan palettes at Walgreens recently! I picked up Melrose at Night, Smoke and Melrose, and Angels in Aubergine. I didn’t swatch the Aubergine because it’s for a friend. I have a feeling she’ll swatch it and you’ll be able to see it on her blog here – Crazy Beautiful Makeup.
Smoke and Melrose is the warmer and more pigmented palette of the two I’ve swatched. As with previous palettes, wet n wild has a shade placement guide imprinted on the eyeshadows. I’m not sure who can pull off the suggested placement (I’d look 50 shades of CRAY), but it’s a nice thought!
Melrose at Night leans more cool/neutral toned. The brown reminds me a little bit of Urban Decay’s Smog, but not so warm. Even though this palette wasn’t quite as pigmented as the other, it was my favorite of the two. I found both palettes to last all day when I used a shadow primer. I tested with MAC Painterly, and Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
There is one other palette in this collection that I didn’t grab, High Wasted Jeans. This has mostly blue and gray tones. I have to track down the matte lipsticks and nail polish from the fall line up. You can find some great swatches on Nouveau Cheap. How gorgeous are they?! Is there anything you’ll be grabbing from this line up?
