Wet n Wild Venice Beach Collection Review!

A few weeks ago I was sent some products from Wet n Wild's new collection, Venice Beach, to try out and today I'm going to share my thoughts on them. The collection includes three beautiful, bright eyeshadow palettes and three coloured mascaras.

The was sent the High Flying Colours and Hemporary Solutions palettes to try out. Both palettes have some amazing shadows - soft, buttery and really pigmented, especially for a drugstore brand! You do need to build the colours up to get full opacity, but that's to be expected.

Hemporary Solutions is my favourite of the two palettes, I really love the colours in this palette a bit more, especially the red shade on the bottom (last shade on the right in the second picture). The matte shades perform a bit better than the two shimmery ones, they're stronger in pigmentation and thus don't need to be built up as much. I really like the white shade too, I don't own any white shadows so its very unique in my collection!

Again, the matte shades in this palette perform a bit better than the shimmery ones. The matte light pink however is the exception, it's the least pigmented out of all the shades in both palettes and it doesn't really show up against my skin tone. I also had a bit of difficulty with the silver shade and the light blue shade underneath that, they require a bit more building up to get them to show up. I'm not a huge fan of blue eyeshadows (they just don't look good on me at all!) so the left side of the palette isn't one I personally would gravitate towards. The purple on the very bottom of the right side is the standout shade in this palette, it is incredibly pigmented!

I think these palettes are really great if, like me, you're someone who really loves playing around with bright coloured shadows. The quality is amazing, especially considering the price, and the colours are really gorgeous! If you've considered getting the Urban Decay Electric Palette but find its just a bit too pricy, these are a great dupe! If you were going to choose only one of the two, I'd definitely go for Hemporary Solutions!

I don't have much experience with coloured mascaras, so I had a lot of fun trying these out. The green one was the most intense of the three, it really left my eyelashes bright green! The blue was more subtle but you could still notice the colour up close or in the light. I found that if you put blue over the green one then you really got the intense electric blue colour. The purple one didn't really show up too much, not even on top of the green, and it was the only dud in the bunch. The formula was a little too runny for my liking too.

The Color Up! Mascaras are only €3.99 and the palettes are €6.49 each. You can find Wet n Wild in Penneys and Dunnes Stores!
