Review: Wet n' Wild Eyeshadow Primer


I recently went to my local Walgreens as you know from my last post and came across the display stand for the Fergie Centerstage collection by Wet n' Wild, and all my lovely Instagram ladies that have already tried this demanded I pick this up! So today I will be reviewing the eyeshadow primer from the line (and will review the lipsticks in another post). As you can see from the top pic, I stocked up! Because this stuff is awesome sauce! Don't worry, I will be doing a giveaway very soon and one lucky reader or instagram follower will receive one in their giveaway set! If you have Instagram, feel free to follow me @nessasarymakeup.

The deets:
Where I bought mine: Walgreens
Price: $4.99 (on sale)
Shade: For my primas (only shade it comes in), it's a neutral, colorless shade and blends in with the skin.

What it's supposed to do: Prevent your eyeshadows from creasing on your lids and keeping it fresh all day.

First impression: When I took off the cap, I noticed the product was just spewing out due to all the pressure in the tube (not a deal breaker), but it's definitely a waste of product because you can't control it and you can't put any of the excess back in, however I am sure once some of it is used up, this will be eliminated. There is no funky smell to it, in fact, it reminded me EXACTLY of my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (UDPP). Same look and feel. I wore it under some Inglot eyeshadows to work when I did a brown smokey look, and 13 hours later (from the time I got ready for work at 6am until 7pm when I got home), it still looks really fresh! No creasing whatsoever! I was highly impressed considering this is probably one of the first drugstore eyeshadow primers I have really seen and it was only $4.99!

- Lots of product in the tube
- Only $4.99
- Actually prevented creasing for me and kept my eyeshadows vibrant

- Hard to find, since I believe these are Limited Edition as it is part of the Fergie Collection, that means when you run out, you most likely won't be able to re-stock.
- Too much product oozes out of the tube first few uses due to all the product pressure in the tube, but should subside once enough product is used.

Final thoughts: This is pretty amazing, and you cannot beat the price as it performs just as good, if not better, than some of the "high-end" eyeshadow primers as you can see from the pics below. I definitely recommend it if you can find it!

Looks like it works wonderfully! Thank you for the post. BTW, have you tried the Cinderella Storylook Eyeshadow Palette? The collab that Disney and Sephora has. I know you're a fan of the Disney princesses, so thought I'd ask ;-) Please do a review if you have! I'd love to read your thoughts and see swatches. xoxo
