Wet n Wild Pop Art Craze: A Regular at the Factory

Swatches & Review

The latest drugstore craze has been over Wet n Wild's new Pop Art Craze Collection, which consists of six eyeshadow trios. For the past week, I have been searching high and low for the new palettes & I was finally able to find the three that I wanted yesterday. The one I wanted the most was A Regular at the Factory, which is what I will be reviewing first.

A Regular at the Factory consists a sheer shimmery yellow, a bright medium blue, and a bright orange.

All were applied over Too Faced Cosmetics Shadow Insurance
Browbone: Shimmery yellow. This color is super sheer so it took about five layers for this to actually show up a bit for me. In the pan, it looks like it would be a lot more yellow, but it comes off more as just shimmer. This one was super chalky and even with just two layers of it, not much showed up, not even much of the shimmer, so it was a bit disappointing.
Crease: Bright medium blue. This blue had a slight sheen to it, but it was incredibly pigmented & applied the best. I only had to use one layer of this for swatches. Since it is smooth, there is a bit of fallout with this.
Eyelid: Bright orange. The orange also had a slight sheen to it, but it was more on the matte side. This was also pigmented, but it was a tiny bit chalky.

Overall, I liked two out of the three shades in this palette. I was hoping the yellow would actually show a bit more, but with the yellow being super sheer, it would work well together with the other two shades in the palette. I think that for the price, these are worth checking out if you are experimenting with bright colors, but if you have a big collection, you might be able to find similar colors in your collection, which isn't worth searching everywhere for these. This retails for $2.99 at most locations, but I purchased mine for $3.49 at Walgreens (Walgreens here in the Bay Area always marks everything more than it's supposed to retail).

If you are interested in these, nouveaucheap (link) has a sighting map for these.

What do you think about the new limited edition Wet n Wild eyeshadow trios? Have you purchased any?
