MY OPINION
Aren't these one of the most beautiful glitters you have ever seen? Well people, all that glitters is certainly not gold. Sigh. I saw these being sold at a couple of places just for a dollar that I did not even bother to read any review and ordered three shades.

Whatever Wet N Wild claims about them is so not true. The glitters are very sparse so don't expect them to cover your entire lid and if you keep reapplying the bottom layer keeps coming off. And they crease like hell. There is no chance that you can wear them on your lid. Bottom lashes, inner corners, maybe! I did a makeup look with the shade Brass which you can see here. But one, I was wearing a gold eyeshadow underneath and, two, I kept reapplying till I took all the pictures. I have read on the internet that the glitter dries on your eyes in 15 mins. Who has that much time to sit motionlessly looking downwards?

Bleached is a silvery white glitter with fine blue and rose gold particles. It looks gorgeous, for sure. It keeps changing colour as sunlight hits on it. Brass is  a pure gold glittery eye pigment and Binge is a STUNNING purple that shifts from dark to light. Their formula which in Wet N Wild's terms is 'infused with aloe and coconut oil' is very greasy, which just refuses to sit still on the lids.

I am so disappointed with the Wet N Wild Color Icon Glitter Singles but so glad they didn't cost more than a buck.

MY RATING
The shades are beyond beautiful. It is such a bummer that the quality sucks.

  1. I did fancy these myself.. your review has saved my three precious bucks. I'd rather spend those on local glitters which are known to work better. Even a cheap glitter liner layers better than these!
    They are gorgeous and look lovely in your previous post :-)

  14. So, I'm I bought this for Halloween and found that a swipe of it across the bridge of the nose is really cute and attracts a lot of compliments. Not a conventional way of wearing, but it's 2016, why not sparkle!
