Wet n Wild In The Spotlight Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette Collection: Swatches & Review

In The Spotlight Coloricon Eyeshadow Palette in A Great Glistener • Lights, Camera, Attraction • No Neutral Ground

I can count on one hand how many time in the past 8 years I've seen Limited Edition Wet n Wild products in my area south of the GTA. It's probably because I would only get Wet n Wild at Walmart and now Zerhs. Retails for $4.99US and $5.99CAN each at large Zerhs and SuperStore.
A Great Glistener Lights
 Lights, Camera, Attraction
No Neutral Ground 
Back of all three palettes
Product: 
These  palettes contains 3 glitter shade in the top row that micro mica bast glitter. The texture and colour of these vary but all of them need a primer to binder the product to the skin, more like a loose pigment.

The mattes shades are wonderfully pigmented And the pearl shade are all buttery. Some of the pearl shade also have micro shimmer that didn't always transfer to the shim without a base.

Verdict
A Great Glistener is an interesting smoke eye palette if that's your interest. The Lights, Camera, Attraction one remind me of the sugar plum fairy from the Nutcracker with it deep blue and iridescent pastel glitter. No Neutral Ground is a very much a fall palette with slightly muted earth tones.

I feel like there is a palette for everyone here in this collection. If you can find it!
