Drugstore Gems: Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Singles in Nutty and Glamrock | Review + Swatches

L to R: Glamrock, Nutty

There's a hidden gem in your drugstore that you've probably walked past many times without thinking about twice. But today, I'm putting them on your radar. The Wet n Wild Color Icon single shadows are completely worthy of picking up, and they won't break the bank either - they'll cost you just $1.99! 

I picked up two colors this weekend (since I found them on sale for $1.39! cha-ching!) - one that I've been meaning to grab for ages called Nutty, and the other, called Glamrock, is one that's completely new to me but looked intriguing. 

Glamrock was part of the Wet n Wild spring 2012 Color Icon Shimmer Singles collection, so it's been around for a while. It is a very shimmery, blue-ish purple. It's bright and bold, but still wearable. It may not be the most "everyday" wearable eyeshadow, but it's just a fun color to have in your collection. The texture is nice and buttery, not powdery at all (which you might expect from a shadow as cheap as this!)

Nutty is a shadow that's been around for quite some time and you can find this in the permanent Wet n Wild displays at your drugstore. This shadow is a must have. It looks and feels like something straight out of the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. The color is a gorgeous silvery cool-tone taupe that has a nice shimmer finish. Just like Glamrock, Nutty is buttery and smooth - performing like a high-end eyeshadow.

The quality, pigmentation and texture of these eyeshadows goes well beyond the $1.99 price tag. These singles perform as well as many high-end shadows, and for the tiny price tag, they're certainly worth picking up.
