Wet N Wild | Not A Basic Peach (Review and Swatches)

Wet N Wild | Not A Basic Peach (Review and Swatches)

Wet N Wild 'Not a Basic Peach' is one of the many 10 pan palettes available through the brand. When I think of summer, I think of peachy eyeshadow looks. I recently took this palette out and realized I didn't have a review posted and decided to post a review and swatches. These 10 pan palettes seem to have a nice range of shades with both matte and shimmers with two larger pans marked for 'transition.'

 As a Canadian, I don't have a lot of access to Wet N Wild; ordering from their site is not a good option due to the high shipping fees. Some products I do find on other online retailers but my lack of access doesn't make them an exciting brand to me. This palette swatches well, and it does perform okay but I've tried better drugstore eyeshadows. Last summer I really enjoyed this palette, but after retesting it out again I realized that I have better options in the affordable range. I recently picked up the the V I Purple palette, and the My Glamour Squad palette and I hope the formula is more pigmented. If you're looking for an affordable palette and you don't have a big makeup collection, I do think these palettes will work but I can't tell you that it's a favourite of mine. You really have to build this palette up. The shimmers are really disappointed, especially on the eyes. I will be reviewing the newer palettes shortly.

The swatches below are build up and you can still see some shades are lacklustre, especially the blue and purple shimmer. The mattes have to be build up but do blend okay. The shimmers are not as metallic as I would have liked; if you spray them it does help. The shadows did wear well throughout the day. My overall thoughts on this palette, I would pass on it. You can find other palettes in this price range that perform much better. Again, I will have those newer palettes to review and I'm hoping the formula and pigmentation have improved.
