After my last experience with Wet n Wild I was hesitant about purchasing the full Flights of Fancy Collection Box. Instead I spent what little free time I did have trying to track down a few of the products I wanted to try in person. I was only able to find two products. One of them is the Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad in Hasta La Costa Baby. I was hoping to get Flock Party as well, but I haven’t been able to find it yet.

Hasta La Costa Baby contains 4 eyeshadows. The shades look really pretty and colorful and really called to me. They swatched beautifully! For the most part they applied just as nicely. However, the crease and eyelid shades didn’t really pop. I ended up applying the eyelid shade on my lower lash line and the crease shade in my outer crease. I applied the eyelid shade with a dampened brush thinking it would pop more, but it didn’t. It just ended up looking dull. The crease shade too. I kept trying to pack it on hoping for it to pop even a little, but it just wasn’t happening.

I applied the other 2 eyeshadows the way they were intended. Those worked out much better. In the end I was pleased with my look, but if I’m being honest I was hoping for a little more color. If only they had applied the way they swatched this quad would have been perfect! You can see a look I created with Hasta La Costa Baby below. I applied the browbone shade on my eyelid and browbone, the transition shade in my crease, the crease shade in my outer crease, and the eyelid shade on my lower lash line.

Overall, it’s an ok quad. I was still pleased with my look, but I really wish those 2 colorful shades popped more. But they did apply and blend beautifully. I was able to create a complete look using just this quad. And for just $2.99 you really can’t go wrong.

Have you purchased anything from the Flights of Fancy Collection? Did anything from the collection catch your eye?

  1. I was pretty excited this collection, despite feeling just meh, about their last ones. I haven’t tried anything yet from it though, and am waiting till they show up in local drug stores, but I’m glad you shared swatches of this palette – it stood out the most!

    • This is the one that stood out the most to me too. And I hear you on waiting for them to show up in stores. Last time I purchased the entire set and was so disappointed.

  2. Too bad the pops of colours aren’t more pigmented. That transition shade looks great though. I haven’t seen this collection out around here yet.

    • The transition shade was pretty great! Too bad about the colorful shades though. Those are what caught my eye.

  3. What a gorgeous looking palette but shame that two of the colours don’t pop as much. :-(

  4. I’m really not a fan of the reformulated Color Icon eyeshadows. The new quads I tried were either not pigmented enough or some shades had really chunky textures. I’m not going to buy any other, I was too disappointed. As for this one, it looks gorgeous swatched, but I honestly couldn’t tell you’re wearing a purple or a teal in the finished look. That’s a bit of a let down!

    • I don’t think I’m going to be purchasing anymore either. I was still looking for a few of the other quads, but eventually quit. I doubt it would be worth so much trouble anyway.

  5. this also looks pretty okayish.. I really loved the big palttes from wet n wild..

    • I haven’t tried any of the bigger ones. I have loved some of their trios in the past. Sadly these aren’t the same. :(

  6. The colors look beautiful but too bad two shades were not up to the mark.
