Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Trio Eyeshadow: I’m Getting Sunburned

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 30 - 2011

In honour of the hottest day of the year which we ‘enjoyed’ on Monday… I wore the Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Trio Eyeshadow aptly called “I’m Getting Sunburned”.

I wasn’t sure WHAT THE HELL I was gonna do with a frosty pink browbone shade… infact, so far I’ve only worn the suggested browbone shades on the browbone once.  I only ever really wanna wear skintone shades in that area… it’s not Mardi Gras yano?

I ended up packing a little on in the inner corner… it doesn’t work badly.  This is a really nice combo for green eyes.

The crease colour in particular is stunning, it reminds me of MAC’s Teddy Kohl but in powder form… a rich, chocolate brown with copper flecks.  I’ll be wearing this as a liner for sure.

Sorry the photos aren’t so clear on the colours here… I couldn’t take standing around snapping pics in the window for too long, my smile was looking more forced by the second thanks to the greenhouse effect!

Do you like this one?  Next one up has a hawt pink in it – god knows what I’m gonna do with that!

* lipstick is MAC Creme Cup while I remember!

    I love Wet n’ Wild! I used to stock up when I could get them from K Mart! They’re lip pencils were the best option for the original MAC Spice Lip pencil before Spice became too pink. You look great! Beautiful perfect application. Colours look lovely and I’d use pink on the lid instead of the brow bone though. Thank you for the post. x

  2. Robyn says:

    Lovely. I’d probably use the pink to blend out my crease colour and then blend a skin-tone highlight above that. Loving these W&W posts!

    Beautiful on you! Wet n Wild has some terrific products- the new 8 pan shadows are lovely for under $5! I would probably use the pink as an allover wash and then line with the rich brown. I’m going to have a look and see if I can find that trio here. Thanks

    Love the crease colour! How come in French it has a much less terrifying name – ‘Caress of the Sun’?!

  5. I like you in warm colours, even though you have a cool complexion!

    I have almost all the WnW trios…I didn’t have Good Jeans until you posted it…then I bought it right away. I see the same happening with this. I couldn’t imagine it on, but now I can. It looks great on you! I’m so close to the whole set…may as well get one more! I guess I’ll just be missing the green one at that point.

    Your bottom lashes look freaking incredible.

  9. Leah says:

    Beautiful! Really reminds me of the colours in the Naked palette.

    Hopefully this comment will post, if so it’ll be 4th time lucky, I gave up altogether on the post about Chezza’s hair.

  10. LaurieS says:

    Those colors are so pretty on you. I love a pink-brown combo and would probably blend a little of the pink in the center of my lid for some pop.

    I’ve never used W&W shadows, were they difficult to blend and do they last?

  11. Wow, this trio looks really good – and it suits you perfectly.

  12. Appu says:

    Gorgeous! That’s a nice idea to use it on the inner corner 😀

  13. Eden-Avalon says:

    Why do you do this to me? Just when I think I don’t need another wet n wild color trio you make me NEED another.

  14. I really love that crease shade too :)

  15. Crystal says:

    Oooh please do tell! What mascara are you using? Your lashes are gorgeous!

    • How funny you should think so because I was really unhappy with them! It was L’oreal Telescopic Explosion (gone a touch old and clumpy) – I had to comb through to separate! I vowed to bin it but perhaps I shouldn’t be so hasty! x

    Hey! you lost weight! lookinggg greatttttttttt <3

  17. Tamara says:

    This looks lovely, and the comparison to Teddy is the icing on the cake. I feel like I have this floating around somewhere, you’ve inspired me to hunt for it.

    Thanks. :]

    the crease colour is to die for in this trio, love love love xx

  19. Sydney says:

    Loving this trio, it’s a little on the safe side (even with the pink) but I shall be adding it to the list of things to pick up!
