Wet n Wild “Flights of Fancy” Eyeshadow Palettes – Review, Swatches & Looks

Wednesday means two things – we’ve made it halfway through the work week (and what a week it’s been) and we get to play with Wet n Wild goodies!

Today I’m talking about the Flights of Fancy collection. To celebrate the launch of this limited-edition collection, Wet n Wild donated $10,000 to the Los Angeles Audobon Society, with the goal of helping the endangered Allen’s hummingbirds. The collection contains eyeliners, blushes and lip scrub, glosses, but I gravitated towards the eyeshadows.

This collection contains three jewel-toned eyeshadow quads. Each quad contains a transition shade, a lid shade, a crease shade and a browbone highlight.

Stop Ruffling My Feathers is the most neutral of the three quads. It has a shimmery bronze and pink shade as well as a cool-toned transition colour and a deep browbone highlight. The shades were all in the same colour family, so when I put together a look it didn’t look like four separate shades – it all kind of melted together into one bronze-y look.

Hasta La Costa Baby is the most “out there” colour combination. It includes a bold teal and grape purple. The formula was a bit stiff, so I had to dip back in about three times. The browbone shade is really pretty, though!

Flock Party had my favourite colour combination, featuring a warm gold and a shimmery fuchsia-red. I really wanted this one to be amazing, but it was pretty tough to work with. The transition shade was really soft, which meant a huge amount of powder kick-up….like as much kick-up as you see in the review videos for the ABH Subculture palette (pretty messy). The other shades, however, were very stiff. I found myself needing to dig in pretty aggressively with my brush, with little result in the colour payoff department.

At first glance, I was really excited about these eyeshadows, but upon using them they turned out to be better to look at and fawn over than to actually use. If these palettes look like your cup of tea, be sure to grab them sooner rather than later, as they are limited-edition.
