My Experience With Wet n Wild Color Icon Glitter Single Spiked:
Packaging: The eyeshadow comes in a small square or rectangular cute and sleek black case with a transparent lid. Now, the lid is really a tough one if you have big nails. I literally broke my nails a few times trying to open the lid. So be careful while you do that. Having said that, the packaging is really sturdy yet light and travel-friendly. It is also sealed from three sides with sticker labels which are really problematic to remove. Nevertheless, once you get the hang of it, you will be okay.
Shade: The shade 'Spiked' is a mixture of silver and black glitter. Now, when I say glitter, I mean big chunky uncomfortable glitter. The moment you rub the finger on it, you will see silver chunks coming up. Although the application is really difficult. Judging the shade alone, I loved this to the core but the formula and texture are so stubborn that I just couldn't make this glitter work for me.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation isn't up to the mark as well. When I first opened the pack and applied with the help of the brush, I applied well but after 2-3 uses, when the first layer went off, the pigmentation started becoming something else altogether. No matter how much I swirl the brush or use a finger, the patches of glitter would come up and spread everywhere.
Texture: The texture of the product is really bad. It is sticky and waxy and you can't simply make it work. Also, the glitters are chunky and definitely not suitable for sensitive areas like eyes. They make my eyes irritate a lot and spread everywhere. It feels sticky which is why you can't blend it properly. The stickiness is so bad that it will crease on the eyes and make it look oily. I tried dabbing eyeshadow powder on top to control the creasing or waxy touch but everything looks patchy on top of it.
Staying Power: The product stayed on my eyes for 1 hour and started creating a mess all over. The glitter started spreading and it became very difficult to remove. You need a good makeup remover to remove it completely.

1/5 (just for the pretty shade)
I am so disappointed to say that this is a complete dud. I would not recommend this to anyone.
