If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you know that on Friday I randomly stumbled across the famous Wet n Wild I Heart Matte Palette in the most random Walgreens. This limited edition palette received high praise from a lot of popular beauty bloggers and vloggers, includingEmily Eddington, and it subsequently sold out at both of my local Walgreens` before I could get myhands on one. But on my way home from an appointment in Winter Park this Friday, I stopped at a Walgreens I haven`t been to in years with the intention of replacing my favorite Wet n Wild Brulee shadow single. They oddly had no shadow singles on display, but I was able to forgive them as I got my hands on this unicorn of a palette. There was at least one more of these babies at said Walgreens, which I considered snagging for a giveaway, but I passed up on it, not knowing if y`all would even be interested in winning something that cost me a whopping $4.99.
Of course I wanted to tear this palette open and play with it the second I got home, but instead resisted the urge until after I got the chance to take pictures and swatch. These were swatched on my bare wrist and photographed in the artificial light of my second bedroom.
What I like: I`m impressed by how legitimately matte all of these shadows are. There`s not a shimmer in sight, which is practically unheard of with drugstore palettes.
What I don`t like: A few of the brighter shades swatched a bit chalky, but I suspect that using a primer may correct this problem.
Overall: The Wet n Wild I Heart Matte palette delivers the high quality shadows I`ve come to expect from this brand. I look forward to playing with this palette, especially the green "eyelid" shade for St. Patty`s Day on Saturday, when I`ll be repping Jake and Mickey`s Irish Pub. Stay tuned for a FOTN post, probably Sunday <s>morning</s> afternoon.
