I recently got my hands on a gorgeous gorgeous eye shadow from Wet n Wild – the Color Icon Eye shadow Single in shade Penny! I believe this is discontinued now but you can purchase it online from allcosmeticswholesale.com.
Price : I got 2 pieces of this for only $1.29 online.
My take on the Product
The eye shadow comes in a really slim rectangular packaging. The packaging feels a little flimsy but for the price, I don’t mind. But I would be careful while handling because I don’t think it would survive a fall. The texture of the eye shadow is super smooth and soft. The formula is amazing – its feels like a high end product with the silky texture and intense color pay off. It blends easily without any patchiness. The shimmer is very fine, dense and doesn’t feel gritty, there is no fall out during application or wear. I got about 7 hours of wear with this without any primer which is pretty fantastic considering my oily lids and the price point of the product! Overall, I am super impressed by the quality of the eye shadow!
Penny is beautiful coppery golden color – it has strong orange-copper toned base with a high gold shine. The color reminds me of MAC Expensive Pink eye shadow a little which is similar but pinker. On lighter skin tones, the copper tone may come out stronger but on my medium complexion, I get more of the gold flash from the shimmer. The color is great for festive occasions, evenings and for brides too. I personally find it super pretty! Recommended!
