Review and Swatchfest: Wet N' Wild's Blue Had Me at Hello

I have been promising this review for a while now, and here it is! This palette is available at drug stores and Walmart for $4.99. Whithout further ado, the swatches:

Left Column:
Overall this side is definitely more silver/grey and less blue which is nice, because it provides you with the opportunity to do a more classic smoky eye. 

Starting left: browbone, lid, crease, define
Browbone: white highlight with silver undertone

Lid: silvery grey similar to theBalm Lusty Lee

Crease: navy blue based black similar to MAC's Blue Sheen

Define: Matte black (a good matte from Wet N' Wild!)
Right Column:
These are brighter, funkier blues.
From left: browbone, lid, crease, define
Browbone: blue-based white highlight

Lid: iridescent blue-green

Crease: Metallic navy blue

Define: black with chunky glitter. The glitter doesn't show up well (as seen in the look)
All of these shadows are consistent with others I have encountered from Wet N' Wild except for the matte black. I have only tried a few of their matte colors and all of them were busts. But, the matte black in this palette is the creamiest I have come across and blends well. All other colors are shimmery so, again, if you aren't a shimmer lover, this palette isn't for you. The color payoff of all of the shadows are great and texture-wise they are very creamy considering the price and quality range. This palette is going to come in very handy this winter considering all of the winter collection previews I have seen lately.

Now for the looks. These are two basic looks I created using all of the colors on each side, as they are "supposed" to be used (as in I use the lid color on my lid, the crease color in my crease, etc.)

Right column look:
