Secret Garden Rendezvous

Wet ‘n’ Wild Secret Garden Rendezvous Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($4.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette where only one shade was easy to use and the other three were varying degrees of frustration. It’s too bad the quality wasn’t there because the color combo could have been quite stunning!


Secret Garden Rendezvous #1

Secret Garden Rendezvous #1 is a soft, muted gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation applied dry as well as wet, though the dampened application yielded a bit more depth and a higher shine finish. The texture was soft, a little dry and dusty, but it applied without too much difficulty. The downside was more that it was prone to fading faster than average–six hours–on my skin, so primer would be an absolute must-have for longevity.

Secret Garden Rendezvous #2

Secret Garden Rendezvous #2 is a light-medium taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The consistency was very powdery, which resulted in sheer coverage and a fair amount of fallout during application. It did not work well with a dampened, as that turned it into a stiffer consistency that was difficult to blend out but was still sheerer; it also led to hard pan on the shade itself. This shade stayed on well for six hours before fading noticeably.

Secret Garden Rendezvous #3

Secret Garden Rendezvous #3 is a medium-darkk purple with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer coverage, which was the best I could get to show after jabbing and pushing at the surface; it was just so stiff and did not want to pick up with fingertips, brushes, or even sponge-tipped applicators! I had real trouble getting the powder to apply to my lid, and what little I did apply did not want to diffuse or soften much. I tried using it wet as the brand said I could, and it only made it harder to move/blend out and caused the surface of the pan to harden. From what I could gather, it wore well for four and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Secret Garden Rendezvous #4

Secret Garden Rendezvous #4 is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium coverage or semi-opaque coverage applied over a primer. The consistency was very powdery and drier, which resulted in a lot of fallout when I tried to diffuse and blend out the shade on my skin. As expected based on trying this with the other shades, it did not perform better wet; it was more pigmented but was challenging to diffuse or blend out as it just stuck to wherever it was initially applied and did not want to budge. It wore well for six hours before I noticed fading.
