Wet n’ Wild Fergie Photo Op Eyeshadow Palette in Maldives Sky is like a funky tropical vacation for the eyes. For some reason, the greens remind me of a tropical sea, the purple reminds me of a summer dress I had a few years ago and the blue is just…my favorite color!
Here’s a closeup of these pretty shadows:
These are pretty shadows. The middle color would make a nice liner, especially if you wet your liner brush before grabbing product.
Here’s a back-of-the-hand swatch. All shadows are shown over Wet n’ Wild Take on the Day Eye Primer (separate review to come!):
Left to right: a light, minty green with glittery shimmer; a satiny tropical green; a vibrant cobalt blue; a bright purple shimmer and a matte charcoal grey.
Here’s the look I created:
Here’s how I used the shadows:
- Lightest green to highlight brow and blended in inner corner of lid.
- Blue in outside corner of lid, and blended towards the inner corner in crease
- Bright green on inner corner of lid
- Purple in the crease blended out
- Grey to define in the crease.
- Purple from outer lower lash line in
- Light green from inner lower lash line out
I also used a bunch of other Wet n’ Wild products for this look:
- Coverall Cream Foundation and Press Powder in Fair/Light
- Take On the Day Eyeshadow Primer
- Fergie Perfect Pout lipstick in Bebot Love
- Turn Up the Volume Mascara
- On Edge gel-based eyeliner in Little Black Dress
- To Reflect Shimmer palette in Rose Champagne Glow
My only real complaint about this palette is that I found it a bit frustrating that I couldn’t open the compact all the way, only to about a 100-degree angle. I like palettes with lids that open all the way.
I used brushes to apply the shadows, which weren’t too hard to blend. They work well with the Take On the Day primer under them. They stayed put all day.
For a SRP of $4.99, if you don’t usually experiment with bold eye makeup, Wet n’ Wild makes it easy to justify the curiosity at that price!
So, have you picked up any of the Photo Op shadow palettes? What do you think of Maldives Sky?!
