Wet N Wild Rosé In The Air Color Icon Palette | First Impressions

Wet N Wild Rosé In The Air Color Icon Palette First ImpressionsThe Rosé In The Air Wet N Wild Color Icon Palette was all over my social media throughout March. The Color Icon Palettes been around for a while, but Wet N Wild changed the formula not too long ago. They’re incredibly affordable at $6.99CAD and I found four different Color Icon Palettes available at my local Superstore. There’s a natural, everyday colour story palette called Nude Awakening, a smokier green/grey palette called Comfort Zone, Not a Basic Peach, a warm palette with a pop of blue, and Rosé in the Air, the palette I chose.

Rosé in the Air has been touted by many YouTubers and Beauty Bloggers to be a dupe for the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette. I didn’t splurge on the MR palette but when I saw that there was a $7 dupe available I had to get my hands on it.

The shades in the Rosé In The Air palette are very pigmented. From the swatches I’ve seen online I would agree that most of the shades are very similar to the ABH MR Palette. There’s a burnt orange, a deep pink, a lilac purple and a dark brown that are dead ringers for the MR palette.

The two largest shades in the ten pan palette are meant to be transition shades. There’s a cool toned brown and a warm golden brown. There’s also a white shade that I’ve been using to set my eye primer. I wish that the white shade was the size of one of those giant transitions. I use it every time I pull out the Rosé In The Air Color Icon Palette.

In terms of formula these shadows aren’t the best I’ve ever worked with but when I’m paying under $10 for a palette I feel like I can’t hold it to the same standard as something that costs $50. The shades are pigmented and build up well, they just take a bit more work than some of my non-drugstore palettes. The formula is very dry and is pressed loosely. I’ve noticed a lot of kickup in the pan. I absolutely need to prime my eyes before applying so I have a base to grab the shadows.

The wear time on these shades worn with a primer is very good. Only the shimmery gold shade in the palette didn’t wear well when I applied it dry. Wetting my brush with setting spray first helped a lot. For $7 this seems to be a really great palette! I wouldn’t expect miracles if you’re used to working with eyeshadow brands like Viseart, Natasha Denona, Too Faced, etc. But for what it cost Wet N Wild did a great job with this palette. I will be checking out more of their products!

    I love Wet n Wild for its very affordable but still good quality products! I own a WnW red lipstick and it lasts like forever, sometimes I wake up in the morning still with red lips even if I washed my face the night before :p However, this palette looks beautiful, you can do a lot of looks with it and I can’t wait to see them 😀

      I’ve heard those catsuit liquid lipsticks are really great!
      I’ll eventually post a full detailed review with a few more looks 😉

    Wow it’s great that this palette worked pretty well for that price! Drugstore is really stepping it up these days, and luckily these palettes haven’t stepped it up in price as well, unlike other drugstore products lately. I think I would be interested in the Peach palette that has the pop of blue! I don’t live near a Superstore, but I go to one to browse the makeup every once in a while!

      It’s ridiculous what some drugstore products are selling for these days! There’s an expectation that drugstore makeup will be affordable…
      I loved the look of that blue too! From what I’ve heard it’s not the most pigmented blue but you can build it up.

      • April 10, 2018 / 3:29 pm

        Hmmm good to know. I don’t now if I’ll purchase. I have so many high end palettes at this point so I’m not so interested in drug store eyeshadows right now. That might change though!

    I’d love to get this palette. I’m usually not attracted to their palettes and the color selection on each but I’m definitely diggin this one. And hey, apparently one of the makeup revolution palettes is also a dupe for the ABH palette, i just can’t remember what it was called. I’m pretty sure I featured that post on my march in review, it was under my bloggers spotlight but I’m not sure if I did include it or not, anyway great review.

      I think they must have gone out of their way to dupe the MR, there’s no way it’s a coincidence! Loving the colours either way 🙂

      I’ll look it up! I’m sure it won’t be too hard to find out what it is. Though I probably only need one MR dupe lol!

      • April 10, 2018 / 11:15 am

        Most likely! And I’m kind of wanting the Makeup Revolution one because it has a little bit more shades than this one.

    I loooove my MR palette, I think its a palette worth splurging on! I think this is a cool shade dupe, but there is no way it’s a formula dupe!

      Haha probably not! It’s still a decent little palette though, I’m planning on getting the soft glam palette for the Vib sale 🙂

        I want the soft glam, but I know I don’t need to. I’m still split. 😂

    This is the palette that I want to get my paws on! I don’t have ABH Modern Renaissance and I don’t intend to buy it. ABH shadows just don’t work well on my lids – they blend away to nothing and fade even on top of primer and bases. I actually quite like Wet n Wild eye shadows, they perform surprisingly well. I would say they’re on par with Inglot or NYX on me. I have the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette in the old format but I’m tempted to get the new version since it now includes 2 matte transition type shades – very smart on Wet n Wild’s part! The colours look great on you!

    This seems like a really pretty palette! I’ve been looking for an earthy palette and the warmer tones/dark brown color would be perfect. 🙂 Plus, I mean less than $10, loving that!! 🙂

    • AlwaysCleia

      It is! It’s very wearable for daytime too because it’s got all those brown & transition shades.
      You might like the neutral palette they have as well!
      Thank for reading 🙂

    I love wet’n’wild, but I’ve never tried their eyeshadows. For a drugstore brand, their products are incredible for the price, so I may have to check out this one 😀

    • AlwaysCleia
      April 9, 2018 / 4:09 pm

      This is my first wet n wild product so I haven’t tried anything else yet! What do you recommend?

        Their mega glo highlighter is awesome! It’s the first highlighter I u ever got and I still like to use it 😄 I also have a few of their eyeshadow brushes. Considering how cheap they are, I’m so impressed with the quality!

        • AlwaysCleia
          April 9, 2018 / 7:47 pm

          I’ve never thought to try their brushes! I’ll need to swatch that highlighter 🙂

  10. April 9, 2018 / 8:41 am

    I think if I were to get one of these palettes, it would be this one as well, just because I also don’t own the MR palette! The quality doesn’t look bad at all for $7.

      Out of the four this was my favourite too, though I might pick up the not a basic peach palette one day.
      It’s nice to get similar shades but not dish out $55 for the MR!

      I just realized that when I abreviate to the MR palette it looks like I’m saying the mister palette 😂 but typing Modern Renaissance takes so much time lol!

      • April 9, 2018 / 9:23 pm

        LOL I never thought of it that way! I guess everyone in the beauty community is so used to seeing the abbreviations, they know exactly what you’re talking about.

  11. April 9, 2018 / 8:29 am

    I own the ABH MR Palette, and I absolutely love it. It’s probably one of my favorite palettes ever. I have to say though, It looks super similar! The only thing lacking is some of the yellow shades. ?That dusty pink looks exactly the same (I’m only mentioning it, because that color is probably my most used shade in my palette) This is honestly an amazing dupe, and I’m glad you brought it to light! Great post as always Cleia xxx

    PS: Idk why, but for the last few days, there’s an error coming up on your page when I go on it. It doesn’t really do anything, or make anything look different, but the error does pop up! Just thought you’d like to know, if you didn’t notice it already

    • AlwaysCleia
      April 9, 2018 / 3:52 pm

      It’s not completely identical but the warm shades are very similar! I wish it had a few lighter shades but for $7 I can’t complain.

      That’s so weird! I haven’t noticed any errors, I checked my page on our work computer browser and my Mac and I’m not getting an error. It’s a pop up error? 🤔 what browser are you using?

      • April 9, 2018 / 8:14 pm

        I use google chrome! I was using two different computers throughout the week. It’s like a popup error, but like i said, you page looks fine?

        • AlwaysCleia
          April 9, 2018 / 8:25 pm

          That’s so weird! I use chrome too :S I’ll try to find out what’s happening!

          • April 9, 2018 / 8:27 pm

            If it doesn’t happen the next time it happens i’ll let you know! But it’s happened at least twice already 🙈🙈

            April 9, 2018 / 11:17 pm

            I managed to generate it once, I’ll keep working on it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, I had no idea!

          • April 10, 2018 / 2:56 pm

            Of course love 🙂 x
