These Wet n Wild palettes have been in my box of to try out makeup for a few months now and now im finally swatching and having a play around with these shadows. They were purchased from IHerb as i wasn't sure if they were available on Priceline in Australia yet.

The Palettes that i got were Heart & Sol Call me Sunshine & Nude Awakening 

Heart & Sol 
Is a fun vibrant palette with gorgeous raspberry shadows a gorgeous beige neutral over the lid shadow and some gorgeous peaches & oranges and a few browns and shimmer shadows 

Call me sunshine 
Is full of bronze shadows with a deep mustard yellow and some neutral and brown shadows 

Nude Awakening 
Is the perfect palette for any neutral eyeshadow lover this one is full of taupes soft beige and browns with gorgeous shimmers too.

These all have the same formula they are soft and creamy so easy to blend and they don't have any fall out I love how you can create any eye look with these shadows they are also really good to have in your collection for easy to use eyeshadows.
