Wet n Wild Carnival in Rio Shimmer Palette Swatches

When I first started hearing about Fergie teaming up with Wet n Wild I got a little excited. Especially when I noticed the shimmer palettes that were included! They reminded me a lot of the MAC Mineralize Sinfinish highlighters so I was really interested in trying them. I had my eye on the Rose Champagne and the Carnival in Rio palettes but I decided to go with Carnival in Rio because it was a bit darker and looked a bit like the Superb Mineralize Skinfinish I skipped when MAC released their Glamour Daze collection.

The base is a deep shimmery bronze shade with dark brown veining around it. It’s very pretty and the swatch floored me. Carnival in Rio looks like it’ll make an amazing highlighter for women of color! It’s shimmery without being overly glittery and it looks like it’ll give off a nice sheen. I don’t think this shimmer palette is just limited to women of color though. I think lighter tone ladies would look fabulous in it as well with a light hand. I can’t wait to try this out and review it for you guys because it’s soo pretty! I’m already in love!
