Have any of you had a chance to check out the new limited edition shadows from Wet n Wild? There are six trios in the Pop Art Craze collection, and I picked up four of them. As usual with WnW, these trios retail for $2.99. Let's get to it!

I found this trio the most intimidating in the package. That is a serious lime green! Like the other palettes, the shadow is very pigmented and blends beautifully. I was particularly impressed with the intensity of the blue.
Your 15 Minutes Aren't Up
This is my favorite of the bunch. The colors are perfect for summer and are surprisingly wearable.
A Regular at the Factory
While I think the pigmentation is good all around, the blues in this collection are amazing! The yellow looks almost neon in the pan, but on the skin, it is a smooth, buttery shade. I am a little intimidated by orange around the eyes, but this one is soft and blendable.
To Muse and Carouse
This is the one I was most excited about before swatching. The cantaloupe/peachy orange is a really unusual shade, and the blue reminds me of the blue colored Sweet Tarts.
Overall, I think this is a great release from Wet n Wild. While the color combinations are a bit wacky, you can easily mix and match the shades to create looks that work for you. These trios are well priced and provide good matte/satin options at the drug store. Plus, I wouldn't want to spend $12+ dollars on a lime green or orange shadow, but at $3 for three shadows, I am much more likely to venture out of my comfort zone.
