Wet n Wild Fergie Centerstage Collection To Reflect Shimmer Palette (Review, Photos, Swatch)

$5.99 each, Walgreens

Well contrary to Fergie's song big girls don't cry, we do but only for a while; and for trivial matters at that! We cry when a poor yet talented girl goes to Hollywood for American Idol.  We cry when we see someone crying. But before you and I sign up for the ultimate lacrimal gland-fest, let's proceed to mah review that's nothing but melodramatic.

First, huge mahalo's to my blogger friend Moxie from Moxie Reviews for snagging these Fergie shimmer palettes for me!

So what are these Fergie palettes if you may ask? Label says "these perfectly-coordinated baked trios provide an instant glimmer of color for a glowing complexion. The baked technology can be worn wet or dry and delivers high-pearl and high- pigment for an extra reflective finish. Big girls don't shy away from a little sparkle! 

Carnaval in Rio: bronze, gold, brown
Rose Champagne Glow: champagne, pink gold
Rose Golden Goddess: bronze, peach, gold
Natural lighting/no flash
So I have open pores, will these magnify the craters from Mars? Which is better, wet or dry application? Are these highlighters, bronzers or blush? Let the Dutchess ~> Fergie <~ speak.

Packaging-wise, it's big. At $5.99, you're getting 0.4 oz/11.3 g of shimmers.The texture is a bit dry but it's easy to blend and buff. It's fragrance-free, so that's a plus for moi who deplores the signature grandma- drugstore- face- powder- smell.

As a highlighter, Rose Champagne Glow is the most-universally appealing; Carnaval in Rio works best as a bronzer; Rose Golden Goddess as a blush. But you know one thing, all these can be used as eyeshadows too! I also prefer to apply them wet (damp brush) for instant vibrance. Need proof?

So do I like it? Surprisingly yes! I didn't feel that it exaggerated my pores or made my face look greasier. The shimmer factor isn't screaming right in your face. Following a disappointing review on Wet n Wild Fergie eyeshadows, I'll give this a positive F: Fabulous! and I mean it to the core.

How do these shimmer palettes appeal to you?

  1. I passed these up because they looked so shimmery and bought a quad which I'll be returning after reading your quad review. Why open it if I'm going to hate it? I doubt I'll buy this though but I will pick up the e/s primer that My Highest Self just reviewed.
    This looks really good on you but with my pale pale skin I doubt I'd have the same luck.

  2. I'm just like Marcia, they looked way to shimmery so I blew them off....
    The colors are really nice on you though!!! I'm glow in the dark fair so I don't think they'll work on me....
    I appreciate your reviews and swatching, it really helps me decide
