Blue Had Me At Hello is a palette for real blue lovers. When you look at it you immediately notice a vibrant teal blue. It’s a real showstopper. Also interesting are the two blacks in it. Let’s see if this one gets our stamp of approval…
This is what Wet n Wild claims about these eyeshadows
Eight dynamic, perfectly color-coordinated shades with high pigment and pearl for ultra-impact color. Shades can be used together or individually to create an endless variety of looks.
Without further ado here come the swatches:
The eyeshadows are really soft (with the exception of the two blacks). They are nicely pigmented and easy to use, but they do get some fallout. A good primer is a must with these. The two colours that stand out for me are the vibrant teal (this colour alone would be worth buying this palette for me) and the shimmery dark navy. I have seen swatches of this palette where the blacks look good, but I can’t seem to get enough pigment out of them, especially when used wet they are really disappointing. The black navy blue is way darker than the blacks, even if you really pack them on.
The packaging could have been more attractive. It’s also not really sturdy and if you don’t want it to break you have to handle it with love. I don’t like that it comes with stickers. I know that you can get rid of them using white spirit, but I don’t want to go through the hassle.
Overall I would say that I am quite impressed by this palette. Some of the colours and the packaging could have been better, but the teal blue and dark navy definitely make up for those flaws. If you love blue or silvery smokey eyes this palette could be the one for you.
