Wet n’ Wild Contouring Palette Review

Hi loves,

I haven’t tried anything out from Wet n Wild for years and picked up this contour palette in my recent drugstore haul. See that post here. I’ve really been wanting to try the Kat Von D Shade Light palette, but I simply have no need for three different bronze and highlight tones. I like duo products like this that are more specific to one skin tone, plus this was a bargain at only $8CAN or $5US.

THE DEETS:

Wet n’ Wild is a super affordable, cruelty free brand from the drugstore. I often overlook it because I tend to be a makeup snob when it comes to drugstore products (who’s with me?!). I decided to try this because Youtube beauty guru Amy Macedo raves it about it all the time. The packaging is super sleek and thin, but you get quite a bit of product in here (12.5grams total). In comparison, the Kat Von D Shade Light palette contains 20.25grams for $64CAN. I picked up the shade ‘Caramel Toffee’ from amazon.ca. There is another lighterΒ contour palette available as well in ‘Dulce de Lece’ (below).

OVERALL:

3/5

I had zero expectations with this product so I’m not unhappy but I’m not over the moon. I really enjoy the darker contour shade- it’s very pigmented yet buildable and gives a very beautiful tanned look to my skin. I was really wanting to love the banana-powder looking highlight shade but it is SO drying on my under eyes. I’ve tried using different brushes, a thick eye cream and even spraying different setting sprays over the area to reduce the dryness but nothing works. My under eyes are a dry, crepey mess with the light shade! It also looks a bit cakey on other areas of my face.

I don’t think this is a bad product because the bronze shade is great and both shades blend very nicely. If you have dry skin like me, the yellow powder will probably be useless. Take it or leave it!

  1. I had this too and bought because I was in a rush and a week left before payday so I couldn’t splurge. I ran out of my usual contour palette and needed something asap.I agree with you about the drying under the eyes. I used it once, but I don’t want to throw it out, so it’s sitting on my vanity.

  2. I think if you go into this KNOWING that you will NEVER EVER EVER EVER touch the light powder you’ll feel even better about the purchase. I really enjoy the contour side and I’d be willing to pay more for it if I could get it alone!
