Wet n Wild Spring 2014 The Style Award Goes to... Collection - Review and Swatches

Today I have a pretty long overdue review for you!  It's the limited edition Spring 2014 collection from Wet n Wild called, "The Style Award Goes to..."  I actually got this whole collection awhile back, but was waiting almost a month for my nail wheels to arrive here for nail polish swatches.  This collection has two 8-pan palettes and six MegaLast nail polishes.  Both the 8-pan palettes and Megalast polish formulas are usually loved by everyone, so it's exciting.  The overall theme of this collection seems very pastel and wedding like.  One of their palettes seems to be inspired by the Pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid.  

Since the colors in the palettes aren't really numbered in a specific way, I swatch and review the left side top to bottom, and then the right top to bottom (to avoid confusion).

Left side:
Browbone:  sheer lilac with sparse silver sparkle
Eyelid:  matte dusty purple with sparse silver sparkle; very soft and pigmented
Crease:  matte laveder; very soft and pigmented
Definer:  dark silver-purple; very hard to pick up and not pigmented, needed multiple layers

Right side:
Browbone:  pastel pink with lavender sheen; standout of the palette because the sheen was unexpected
Eyelid:  matte orchid; soft and pigmented
Crease:  matte fuchsia with blue sparkles; soft and pigmented although the sparkles don't show up
Definer:  dark royal purple; hard to pick up and not pigmented, needed multiple layers

Right side:
Browbone:  satin white gold; buttery and pigmented
Eyelid:  true gold; has fallout
Crease:  metallic goldenrod;  buttery and pigmented
Definer:  russet with gold sparkles; harder to pick up and moderate opacity

Silver Lining
Silver Lining:  sheer gray with blue and red shimmer; 4 coats.

Elegance:  white frost; 2 coats

Overall, this collection is pretty nice.  I was very surprised and disappointed with the darker colors in both palettes because they were hard to pick up and needed multiple layers to show.  However, the mattes and satin shades were absolutely amazing.  I'm also very impressed with the formula of the nail polishes.  Silver Lining was the only one that didn't impress me since it was sheer and needed a good amount of layering, but every other color was great.  I'm not sure if this collection is still in stores, but I would strongly suggest picking up some of the nail polishes at least!
