REVIEW: Wet n Wild ColorIcon 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Tunnel Vision

Wet n Wild has upped their game this year with the release of new 5-pan eyeshadow palettes. These are the all-grown-up versions of the trusty trios that we learned the basics with. Each palette contains a base and four shades: browbone, eyelid, crease and definer— everything a modern beauty lover needs to get a complete eye look.

Wet n Wild Tunnel Vision palette

Tunnel Vision is a must-have in any woman’s makeup collection. This palette will deliver that classic, smoldering smokey eye with it’s silver, grey and black hues.

The base is a pure white that you can either incorporate into your look, or use to make the other shades look bolder on top of it. The first of its kind in the ColorIcon palettes, the base has a cream-to-powder texture, and helps the other eyeshadows apply smoothly and opaquely. The browbone color is a light silver with shimmer particles. The shimmer transfers more than the pigment, but I don’t mind so much since this is meant for a highlight. For the eyelid, we have a pewter shade with shimmer. The crease color is a soft black with lots of sparkles.

I do believe this is the first palette Wet n Wild has released featuring a matte black, the definer color, which is a staple shade in any classic smokey eye. Use it as a liner, or to darken up your crease: this black won’t disappoint.

All of the shades are buildable and blendable, just as you would expect from the brand with some of the best drugstore eyeshadows. I only experienced minimal fading of the eyelid shade throughout the day when applied over the base and primer. This was a welcome addition to my collection, as the black-and-silver smokey eye is one of my favorite looks.

There are four other 5-pan palettes that Wet n Wild released at the beginning of the year containing bold colors, cool neutrals, pinks, and purples. They’re only $3.99 in local drugstores, and have been spotted with a $1 off coupon attached to them! Tunnel Vision gets a huge stamp of approval from me, and will be a much-reached-for palette in my collection.

Have you explored any of the new Wet n Wild products?

    Nice eye you created. I haven’t tried any of the new wet n wild palettes, but there was one I saw with bright colors I don’t yet own that I want to pick up.

    I love that they added a creme base color. I’ve seen some drugstore brands including a base or even a ‘primer’ in the pan for an all-in-one palette. I like this EOTD – a silver/black smokey eye is so dramatic.
