Wet n Wild I'm Seeing Triples LE palette - natural lighting/no flash
For today, I have for you another of Wet n Wild's limited edition Pop Art Craze shadow palettes...this one in I'm Seeing Triples.  This was purchased at Walgreens for $2.99 USD.  This palette is three shadows enclosed in a clamshell, plastic casing.  You get 0.12oz/3.5g of shadow in this palette.  Aside from Walgreen's, these can also be found at K-Mart, Meijer, Wal-Mart.

WnW I'm Seeing Triple LE Trio - natural light / no flash
This trio comes marked with eyelid, crease and brow bone, but these shadows can be used everywhere.  The top green shadow is a mix of green apple and lime.  The middle blue is somewhat deceiving in the picture above.  Here it looks like a sky blue with a touch of powdery light blue mixed in.  When I swatched and wore this, especially over primer, it turns into an extremely pigmented and loud primary blue that is very beautiful.  The last color is a lovely mix of pink and purple, not violet, not magenta, not fuchsia.  I would call it a light pinky purple.

WnW I'm Seeing Triples swatch - natural light / no flash / no primer
Here we have a one swipe swatch of I'm Seeing Triples.  They look almost pastel here, but what I love about these shadows is that they are extremely blendable and did not find them to be patchy.  They come off as matte, but some have the most minute touch of micro shimmer that I think may help in them coming off as smooth as they do.  All three shades had the same blendable, matte texture.  With the aid of primer, these came alive, especially the blue shade which was extremely electric.  As you can see the last shade does come off more purple on the skin once worn.

WnW I'm Seeing Triples swatch - flash / no primer
The swatches here were photographed with flash and now you can really see how that blue is more than your average matte blue.  The purple sheered out quite a bit, and even over primer, I would say that this is my least favorite shade.  The green here turns more lime and you get a subtle hint of that micro shimmer.  What I really loved was that for matte textures, these did not skip when I used them.  The blue was packed on twice to get a really vibrant color, and the same can be said for the green.  The purple took around 4 layers of pack before I could get an opaque look to the shadow.

I had quite the time purchasing these as they were sold out almost everywhere at first.  Just today, I still saw a few trios hanging out at Walgreens, so you may be lucky to find them now.  For $3, I do not think you can beat that...especially if you are a fan of blue...because you will need and love this blue!!!!!  Totally satisfied with this purchase and I cannot wait to show you the rest of the trios I have!

Thanks for stopping by!
