Review: Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Eyeshadow Palette


Sine yesterday brought us Comfort Zone, I thought I may as well follow up with Petal Pusher, the purple based cousin. Yes, I know, these palettes have been all over the blog-o-sphere and I am laughably behind with these reviews. Oh well. I think I've finally cleaned up the last of my old photos... maybe?




As you likely know, the Wet n Wild 8 pan Colour Icon palettes have been massively popular. Not only are they incredibly inexpensive (about $9 CAN) but you get great eyeshadow. I remember back in elementary school when my friends and I used to got to the mall, Wet n Wild was always a stop on our 'must see' list. I was quite fond of their eyeliners and nail polish, but at the time never used their eyeshadow. I don't know if their quality was always this great, or if it has come about in the past few years, but it's pretty amazing.

As you can see you get 8 shadows in a range of purpley hues, there is bound to be something for everyone as they are all super wearable shades. On the back of the palette they've included a little chart to help you create coordinated looks, but of course, you can always mix and match as you like.




The individual shadows don't have names (boo!) but as you can see you get a nice variety of both finishes and shades. Wet n Wild has made is super easy for beginners (or the lazy) by printing suggested uses for each colour right onto the shadow: brow bone, eyelid, crease, and definer. I think it's a great idea! When I got my first eyeshdow quad (waaaay back when...) it would have been nice to have a little bit of a heads up on how to use it. I'm just saying.

Most of the shades are nicely pigmented. Some of the darker shades are a touch drier in texture, but that is common when compared to satin/frost shadows and the first two shades of the left column (first and second in the swatches) are a bit more sheer than I would have hoped for. There is no real standout for me in this palette, but overall they are nice shades to have on hand.

Overall, this is an okay palette; the colours are all wearable, the price can't be beat, the quality isn't quite as great as the Comfort Zone palette but still totally worth while. Have you tried this palette? What did you think of it?

  1. The colours in that palette are beautiful. I have the Comfort Zone palette, and I love it. I might have to pick this one up as well.
