i have searched makeup counters far and wide for the perfect everyday eyeshadow, so imagine my surprise when perfection was discovered on the drugstore shelf. i admittedly haven’t given wet n wild a second glance since high school, but when this palette started popping up on my favorite beauty spots around the web, i hunted it down immediately.
technically designed to give your face an all-over highlight, hollywood boulevard is generously sized (i.e. huge – easily the size of my palm) and includes shades of pink, brown and golden yellow. at first glance it might not look like something you want to douse your eyelids in, but i promise you that the resulting finish is soft and natural, a subtly sparkly pink champagne with the slightest gilded look that’s perfect for everyday. in short? it’s neutral, easy, and ultra glowy.
i think i’m so in love with it because the powder itself is almost creamy, making it a gorgeous option for your eyes (and far better than a lot of eyeshadows that just don’t hold together). it stays in place really well on my oily lids and gives a solid full day’s worth of wear time, especially if i add a layer of this stuff underneath.
wet n wild is giving me everything i’ve been searching for! it’s beautifully neutral, yet special without trying hard. it’s pigmented and buildable – all from a very surprising source.
