Wet n WIld Opulence Quad - $4.99 at most drugstores
I previously reviewed one of the new Wet n Wild Color Icon singles, and was quite impressed with the quality of the shadow, so when faced with these new quads, I had to at least try one. There are several adorable color combinations, but the turquoise and purpley-pink shades in this quad screamed out at me. In the quad you get three powder shadows and then the top left is a glittery cream shadow. Here are my shade descriptions:
Top left: Frosty white with opalescent glitter
Top right: Satiny nude beige with lilac flash
Bottom left: Shimmery medium turquoise shimmer
Bottom right: Satiny lilac with large golden shimmer
I was pretty impressed with the turquoise and beige shades. The turquoise has a deeper base with lighter shimmer and had lots of depth. The nude beige has a gorgeous lilac duochrome flash to it that really makes it interesting. This highlight type shade pairs gorgeously with both the lilac and the turquoise. The lilac shade itself is a bit chalky, and I'm not the biggest fan of it. It almost reminded me of a mix between MAC Stars n Rockets and Trax. It sounds like a strange combination, and it is, but I found it to be pretty accurate. You can see the slight chalkiness of this shadow in the swatches below. As for the glittery shade, I was pretty impressed with this as well. I don't recommend using it alone or as a base, but when patted on top of other shadows with your finger, it gives a beautiful light-catching pearliness. The glitter isn't overwhelming, but it's definitely there. Overall, I was certainly pleased with the value of this quad. For $1.25 per shade I really can't complain. The turquoise and the nude are worth the price of the quad alone. Furthermore, you will find that Wet n Wild often have sales so you might be able to snag it for even half the price I did. If you run across these, I'd definitely take a close look at them.
