This palette is part of the Fergie Centerstage Collection from 2013. In the 1990s, there was only one Fergie. She attained fame first and notoriety later for reasons that sound tame today. There were at least four other palettes in this collection but I did not like the colours in the others.
Here are swatches of the Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection eyeshadow palette in Desert Festival.PackagingThese eyeshadows come in five-pans and are nice to take along in your travel bag. The different shades do not have names, so we will have to call them 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, clockwise from left, with 5 in the centre. The palette contain one of those dual-ended sponge applicators, which I never use.
FormulaWet n Wild says these are "intensely pigmented" and "come in a range of textures" - this palette has matte and shimmery/glittery shadows. These do not contain parabens.
SwatchesTaken in natural but super-cloudy light, on a measly eight-year-old point-and-shoot. You don't want to know how much it has rained here. I am contemplating saving on makeup to buy an ark.
I can work with these shadows, although two of them are on the drier side. Two of those colours are lovely and were lacking in my collection. The palette is definitely worth the price - I forgot how much I paid for it (not much) and the invoice is probably lost in the ocean, which, I have concluded, is where all lost objects must be going. I do know it is $4.99 in the US. I hope to pick up other Wet n Wild eyeshadows, although maybe not from this range, from the UAE. Incidentally, this is my first Wet n Wild product. I know, I am quite behind the times. It is just one of those brands I never managed to pick up despite coming across it many times - probably because of a deluge of other brands. Watch out for an eye look with this palette soon.
