By now the awesomeness of Wet n Wild's eye shadow palettes is an established beauty fact. Lust is no exception to this rule. Any fan of purple shadows will fall head over heels for this versatile palette. I managed to finally locate this palette in a Rite Aid in a remote area of Oregon. No more harassing my husband every time he goes to a store "Oh, do they have Lust?" "Do you see Lust?" At this point he knows these palettes almost as well as I do.
Lust has six shadows, three matte shades and three sparkly shades. Like all of Wet n Wild's palettes the colors and finishes compliment one another for a variety of looks from dramatic to romantic.
All of these shadows apply smoothly and opaquely. The only shades that need two passes to build them up are the two matte purple shades. While you need to give them a little more product, I experienced very minimal fallout. As mattes go, these are really easy to work with.
The top left shade is a soft matte baby pink. It is a great highlight color and looks lighter the more you build it up.
The middle left shade is a matte wine/grape. It is a tad patchy on the first pass, but builds up nicely with very minimal fallout.
The bottom right shade is a black base with a burgundy tinge and a good amount of pink and purple sparkle throughout. Using this over a primer or other sticky base will intensify the sparkles.
The Look of Lust
I used every shade in the palette for a dramatic look.
You can't miss with Wet n Wild palettes, the quality of shadows is excellent, the choices of finishes work almost universally and the colors they select work really well together. This may not always be apparent when looking at the palette, but when you use it, you realize they know what they are doing.
