The 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!
