I am an eye shadow lover! My favorite part of putting makeup on is definitely the eyes! I purchased this Wet n Wild Petal Pusher icon eyeshadow collection at CVS for $4.99. At such a low price, I was amazed at the great quality and pigmentation of these shadows.
While I can’t say that I absolutely love and use all 8 of the shadows, there are several that I use quite frequently. Since these shadows don’t have individual name, I have numbered them to make it easier to tell which one I am talking about.
My hands down favorite shade is #2. It is a light pink with a pearl finish. It has a creamy texture and goes on beautifully. I generally use it either all over my lid or in the inner corners to add some highlight. My second favorite is #3. It is a beautiful light lilac purple matte shadow. It also has a nice creamy texture and blends out easily. I usually use this in the crease as a transition shade. I haven’t had any issues with any of these shadows creasing on me.
It is a tie for third place between #1 and #5. While they couldn’t be more different from each other, they both work out perfectly for where I want to use them. The #1 shade is a perfect matte highlight shade for under the brow bone. It also looks beautiful when used all over the lid either on its own or under another shadow. This shadow also blends out well. The deep purple of the #5 matte shade is perfect for using on the outer lower lash line, and in a V definition of the outer crease and along the outer lid. It does have a bit of fall out, but I find that as long as I tap my brush off first, the fall out isn’t too bad.
Numbers 4, 6, 7, and 8 all are glittery and tend to have a lot more fall out. In the pan #4 has a burgundy look to it, but transfers as more of a purple, while #6 looks reddish, but goes on more black with red undertones. Number 8 is a glittery black with A LOT of fall out, so use with caution!
The ICON EYESHADOW COLLECTION also comes in two other pallet selections 738 Comfort Zone and 737A Poster Child. While I don’t personally own either of these two pallets myself, I have heard a lot of great things about the 738 Comfort Zone pallet.
