Drinking a Glass of Shine is one of three limited edition palettes released in Wet n Wild's Where's The Party? Collection and is nearly identical to their wildly popular I <3 Matte from last winter's limited edition release. Good news for those who felt like they missed out last year! For a drugstore brand, Wet n Wild has pretty solid matte shades which makes this palette a real asset to the bargain beauty lover.

The palette is pretty obviously divided into a more natural, neutral side, and a brights side, so it will cater to what most anyone will want in a shadow palette. On the left, the brights shine with a matte cream, matte medium mint green, satin sky blue, and an almost-amethyst purple with sparse silver glitter. The left has the neutrals with a matte light tan, a matte medium camel, a matte chocolate brown, and a satin black.

Overall, the shadows are slightly powdery, but well pigmented. The only problem shades in the bunch were the purple, which was a tad uneven, and the chocolate brown, which was slightly chunky (evident in the pictures below). Aside from that, the rest of the shades performed well and after a year of using the I <3 Matte palette, I can safely say that this palette is a staple for anyone who needs a stellar crease color, or simply doesn't like to wear shimmer.

Verdict:

I think I gave it away in the last sentence, but for $4.99, this palette can't be beat. You get a myriad of staple matte shades and even a few satin and glitter in the mix. If you can find these, they will be at drugstores and grocery stores (depending on if yours carry cosmetics). Check out swatches for the other two palettes in the collection: Sparkle 'Til Morning or the Shimmer the Night Away! To see if this collection has made it to a store near you, I highly recommend checking out Nouveau Cheap's Interactive Map!
