Wet n wild is an affordable brand whereby so many love and trust this brand including myself. I decided to purchase the updated eye shadow palette with the new formula as well as this mascara that I’ve been seeing floating around.
As per the website:
Powerfully pigmented, buttery-soft, glides on like a dream. That’s what we dreamed up with our reformulated Color Icon eyeshadows. Our reformulated Color Icon hues come in a mix of coveted colors, from shimmery daytime hues to sultry shades for cocktail hours—including new matte transitional shades for impeccable blending.
Contains 10 shades.
I have tried and still own the old palette with the old formula also in the comfort zone palette. Although there are more shades in the new palette, the pan size is smaller except for the 2 additional transition shades. The packaging is simple, sleek and easy to pop in your handbag or travel case.
I love the layout and selection of shades as I can complete an entire eye look with this palette.
In comparison to the old vs new palette, I do prefer the new one. It blends a lot easier, the formula has improved as it’s so easy to work with and it packs a punch with regards to pigmentation and longevity.
I would definitely recommend this palette especially if you’ve tried the old formula and not this one yet. I paid just over R100 for it therefore the price is right for how good the quality is, I would even compare this to high-end eye shadows.
As per the website:
It’s time to start a rebellion against lanky lashes! Make this mascara your secret weapon. With a cutting edge brush that catches every lash and a killer formula that volumizes, curls, lengthens and defines, going rogue never looked so gorgeous. Break the rules and lash out.

The shape of this product itself is peculiar as well as the shape of the wand. I do enjoy the packaging as it doesn’t roll around or fall all over the place.
The wand is rubber which I usually don’t prefer as a pose to brush wands. It contains a ball at the end of the wand which i thought would be easy to coat and ‘catch’ even the tiniest inner corner lashes.
I applied one coat which didn’t look like much. I don’t think a lot of product was on the wand the very first time I applied it. I then applied 2 more coats and the same thing, not a lot of product goes on the wand even when I tried wiggling the wand in the tube before applying more coats. I do think this is due to the formula being slightly thin and not as thick. Even though a lot of mascaras get a bit thicker after a couple of uses which then I’m sure more product will stick to the wand.
It did however provide length and volume to my lashes which I liked. I don’t think it’s very pigmented though or dark/ black enough for what I’m use to. I’m assuming once I start using it more and more the product on the wand may intensify so that I wouldn’t have to apply 4 coats for my desired appearance. Although I applied quite a few coats my lashes did not feel hard or get clumpy at all which is my favorite part about this mascara.
The ball on the end of the wand did not reach my tiny inner corner lashes like I thought it would, the ball was a bit too big to reach those corners. I do have small eyes so I’m not sure if this is one of the reasons I found the ball hard to work with.
This lasted all day, my lashes looked the same at the end of the day as it did the beginning of the day. No flaking, no smudging and it felt soft.
Overall I enjoyed this mascara especially for the price. I paid around R45 only (I think it’s currently discounted).
Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?
