All of the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes (Review)

I wanted to get this post out there before all of the holiday palettes are discontinued.  You can find them at Jewel or Walgreens if you live in Illinois.  I'm not too sure where you can get them nationwide or internationally, sorry :(  I picked up these crazy amazing palettes for either five bucks at full price or half off.  So it's not going to hurt your pocketbook (haha pocketbook) even if you buy all of them.  I didn't use any primer to swatch these just to show how pigmented the palettes are.  I apologize for some of the blurry pictures.

Firstly, these are the hoilday palettes in Snow Sprite, Night Elf, Sugar Plum Fairy, and Bronze Goddess:

Snow Sprite 
These show up great, only con is that the two silver shades are very very similar.
Night Elf
Only con is that the sparkly white shadow isn't that pigmented nor soft.  But I love that the red shows up that well without a primer.
Sugar Plum Fairy
First shadow is pretty powdery, but the rest have better quality.
Bronze Goddess
All of these are great and wearable, but look better when and if you are tan hence Bronze Goddess.

These are there more permanent palettes I presume in Greed, Vanity, Pride, and Lust: 

Individually great shadows, but are kind of hard to blend with each other or maybe I just haven't figure it out yet.
Pretty pretty.
These are very pigmented, just waiting for an opportunity to wear them out.  I love blue but it looks like crap on me. 
All of these are so so worth it and beautiful.

Lust is my favorite palette.  Every time I wear any of these shadows I get compliments, guaranteed.  In fact, this palette has received the most eye/eyeshadow compliments of anything I've ever worn. I have three of these just in case it ever gets discontinued.

There aren't any individual names for the shadows so I'm going to generalize by row and colum what I used.  I used 2,2 on my lid with 1,2 blended over it and 2,1 on my brow bone from the Lust palette.
