New Wet & Wild Palettes! Swatches & 1st Impressions!

Talk about a Stroke of (Beauty) Luck! 
 
I went to pick up a few beauty basics this morning at Harmon Discount. (Click Here for a Harmon in your area). Now I will be honest I’m never NOT looking for makeup… If there is a makeup section in any store I feel obligated to browse it! 
As I was perusing the new product displays section I spotted some Wet n Wild cosmetics I hadn’t seen before. I had to do a double actually because it has been quite a while since I had seen ANY new 8 pan palettes from the bargain brand! 
There were 2 palette choices – Going In The Wild & Nude Awakening, and for $4.49 I got them both. 
 
I was so excited I couldn’t wait to get home and get some swatches going for you guys!
 
So let’s start with taking a basic look & then I’ll give you some of my first impressions on my novel purchases!

General 1st Impressions
The shadows are classic Wet n Wild quality. 
Velvety smooth, uber pigmented & really easy to blend! 

They are a bit powdery so make sure to tap off excess if applying with a brush.


The colors for the browbone are very light & less pigmented than the others… but then again those are meant as highlighters.
 
Going In The Wild 1st Impressions
I found that in the Going In The Wild palette I liked only a few colors. I wasn’t a big fan of the left column of shadows. They just didn’t pack much of a punch.

I had high hopes for the purple but was disappointed when I realized it was more of a washed out hue than the bright lilac I was had wished for. 


I was however pleasantly surprise with the pastel green! I think it will look uh-maze-iiing on the lower lash line to add a pop of bright color.


Nude Awakenings 1st Impressions
Of the two palettes I preferred this one the most as I fell in love with every color I swatched! The pigmentation is simply amazing & with the neutral colors you could go day to night in a few sweeps!

But here is my favorite part….
This palette had a few shades that were very very (very) similar to colors in the UD’s Naked & Naked 2 Palettes. 

Perfect if you are really craving the Urban Decay palettes but just cannot dish out $50 for each…. or you just would rather score a bargain!
