Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad – Petalette Review, Swatches and Eye Makeup

Hello everyone
Welcome back to my happy space. Hope you all are doing great!
Today I am here with a quick review on Wet n Wild Petalette Eye Shadow Quad from their Color Icon range. These quads are from their permanent range and retails for INR 299 only, and even has additional discounts running almost throughout the year.

I got this palette at 135 INR during one such sale. I didn’t have any similar shades and thought of giving this quad a try.

So let’s get into the details…

About Wet n Wild:-
Wet n Wild is a Los-Angeles based company that brings to you amazing range of makeup products at unbeatable price. The brand is 100% cruelty-free and that’s what makes it even more special.

Where to Buy in India:

299 INR.
Instagram sellers might charge you higher.

A sweet and simple eye shadow quad with a transparent lid. The palette doesn’t look super sturdy, but I have traveled a lot with it and it definitely survives the torture.

Shades and Texture:-
There are four shadows in the palette with their name/place of usage embossed on them, an eyelid color (light pink), a crease color (a beautiful burgundy), a transition shade (a dusty mauve) and one for brow bone (satiny iridescent white).

The shadows are soft and smooth
and blend out very nicely. They apply well with both finger and brushes, but definitely better with fingers, especially the lid color. Never, I repeat, never use a wet brush here. The shadows will become hard and you will have no option but to scrape them out. The transition color is the only matte shadow in the quad and rest of the shades are shimmery. The shimmers are fine and non-gritty. I didn’t face major fallout with any of the shades.

Pigmentation and Staying Power:-
The lid color and transition shades lack the intensity. You have to layer them up. A primer or concealer underneath helps to pop the colors up to some extent. The brow bone shade too needs layering, but better than the lid and transition shades. The crease color has the best pigmentation out of them. One to two swipes are enough.

Staying power of the eye shadows is good. I wore the shades for 6 hours at a stretch and it still looked crisp and nice.

Time for the eye makeup. I have tried 3 looks using this palette. The smokey eyes is my most favorite and then the Halo. Let me know which one you like..

It is a decent eye shadow palette for the price you pay, especially for beginners who are trying to ease themselves out into the world of eye makeup. Or for someone who isn't a big fan of purples or pinks and just want to dabble and experiment once in a while without spending a lot. You can create both soft, crisp day time look and a smoky or halo night time look with this palette. You just have to pack the shades up for the intensity and that’s it. There are no other cons as such. But if you are a pro and already use varied eye shadows with amazing quality, then you might find this quad difficult and boring to work with. Like, I don’t see myself using this palette much, just take it out when I need that stunning burgundy color.

Still… I am eyeing two other quads from the range, Ice Dragon and Hooked Up Vinyl. Every quad from the Color Icon range has one shade that attracts me, Petalette has this alluring burgundy color, Ice Dragon has a beautiful olive green and Hooked Up Vinyl has a very interesting dark greenish teal kind of a shade. I am waiting for the next sale, just hope the pigmentation is better.

  1. My favorite Wet N Wild are their older ones. Those were mostly delightful surprises. But you can't beat the price on these.

  2. You got some pretty looks out of that palette. I have a couple of the old Colour Icon palettes and the quality on those is absolutely fantastic. They must have changed the formula when they revamped the line. What a shame.

  3. Ooo I LOVE the looks you created with these!

  4. Wet n Wild palette are always so hit or miss when it comes to quality of pigmentation, but you definitely got some gorgeous looks with this one!

  5. Wet n Wild palettes are classic!! I loooove this color story, I'm all about a sultry plum look and love what you created!

  6. You look amazing! I love that they spell out where things go because I'm still learning!
