great pigmentation, the packaging is simple but effective. these shadows feel buttery and soft bud can get a little powdery.
Got this palette today and BAM!!! In your face amazing colors! I LOVE it! the colors are very pigmented ... like extremely!!! pigmented lol WnW for the win! The only one I wouldn't use is the sparkly black but I can save that for Halloween or make my husband let me put makeup on him hahaha
I only buy MAC and MUFE eyeshadows, but after having read all the reviews about this palette I thought considering the price I had nothing to lose! I am so glad I bought it!, My go to blue palette. The colours are extremely highly pigmented, I always use my NARS smudgeproof primer before though. Reviewers say the palette is not sturdy and colours cross contaminate quickly. If you are careful, then no! My palette looks like new and I wear this everyday. I can wear these shadows for over 12 years and honestly they look no different to when they were first applied. I have ordered the petal pusher palette which is plums, purples etc and again wow! I mix and match, but my favourite is the left hand side combination. I always receive compliments when wearing these shadows. You have nothing to lose, I think the palette cost me around £6 plus £4 for delivery which comes from the states through Amazon.
-Pigmented, usually the best budget shadows but read reviews of each.
-Fragile, one drop or bump and many can shatter in a colorful cloud of pouf. Not for on the go, they stay in a stable, flat place.
-Crumbly, the shades cross-contaminate very easily
These pans are not sturdy, and the palette cases are cheap but despite that, with a little TLC and care keeping the colors separate, they are really great performers! Pack these on with a stiff, flat, damp brush and use a sealer for the best performance. I do not mind the fussiness they require.
I'm also one who used WnW in high school...but only until I could manage something better!
Now they have improved to the point where some of their shadows rival the major drugstore brands and a few are contenders with Urban Decay and MAC in the color arena.
-not all colors will wear how they look in the pan, most notably the duochrome and the glitter which are the prettiest. They are hit and miss. They look good, just not ever quite as impressive as in the pan.
-the palettes and pans are very fragile and the shadow texture of even the best ones is crumbly. It's a little unexpected but once you learn to pack shadow and only blend the edges, you will likely have a good experience.
@US$4.99 regular retail, I think it's worth it if you use more than a couple of the colors and don't buy many larger higher end palettes...but I also keep in mind that my new Urban Decay Vice2 palette shadows work out to ~$3/shadow, $2.36 with F&F discount. I bought this palette and Comfort Zone though. :)
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! it is fantastic i bought it about 2 years ago and still haven't used up y pan of black. however i find that the top colors the powder blues are very chalk. still totally worth it even with the not so great colors the other ones make it all worth it. 6 dollars is cheaper the MACs charcoal and is WAY better then any other black i recently bought the rest of the 8 pan eyeshadow sets LOVE them to bought a couple of the pop color limited edition 3 pan pallets they are lovely! all in all best brand for inexpensive eyeshadow with my store carried them so i could get a discount. OH i was at a Walmart super center and the had a different brand admit was the same design and quality bought the brown color i will ave t look and see brand it was and get back to ya. all in all if you find a 8 pan eyeshadow set that looks like them GET THEM i believe they are made by the same maker same quality of eyeshadow all in all GREAT EYESHADOW
My new favorite palette! I negletted buying this palette for a long time but i finally got around to it and i love it! All the colors are richely pigmented and beautiful. If you love blue this is the palette you want to buy. There is also a repeat shade from one of the brand's trios. The right side crease color is the same as the crease color in the "i got good jeans" trio. Just thought i'd add that. My favorites are the beautiful turquiose eyelid shade and the dark black with blue sparkles crease shade. All of the colors are just pretty really. The best thing is that the blacks in this palette are intense. Usually its hard to find good pigmented black shadows but the ones in this palette are really good. I recommend this palette a lot.

I am freaking loving the WnW palettes! The pigmentation is at par with MAC, UD and the colours are just gorge.
I am absolutely in love with these palettes from Wet n Wild. I love the wide range of colors, the pigmentation, the texture, the fact that they all last a long time - etc. I mean, for short of 5$ you really can't complain. I won this one, Purple Petal (i think that's what it's called) , and Comfort Zone. These colors - pigmentation and texture are very similar to my higher end eye shadows. I think this is my favorite of the 3 different Color Collections, the colors go on like butter and they are extremely versatile. I love that they last all day without a primer, but if you use a paint pot underneath (I use Painterly) then they are even more vibrant and gorgeous. My favorite of the palette is definitely the super bright teal color and the silver - they are so gorgeous and pigmented. I love to use Maybelline's Tenacious Teal underneath the bright teal shadow - it has to be the most gorgeous combo I've ever seen. Please do yourself a favor and buy this palette! Even if you won't use the brighter eyeshadows, there are multiple uses for them. :)
I'm quite impressed with these eyeshadows. I wear the white, silver and teal colors the most - sometimes alone, sometimes together. The rest of the colors in the palette I could take or leave. The teal kind of reminds me of Shattered from Urban Decay, but it's a lot more green.
As many have said, the packaging is flimsy and I've lost huge chunks of the two bottom black shadows already from mishandling of it.
The silver in this is probably my favourite. If you apply it wet, it's like chrome eyeshadow! The teal is super fun, and looks really nice with the lime from the I Dream of Greenie palette. My least favourite is the dark, dark blue crease colour. It doesn't look dark navy, but it isn't dark enough to look black. It's a meh. The colour payoff for all of the shadows is wonderful, of course. There is literally no reason to ever buy any other brand of eyeshadow as long as Wet n Wild keeps up with this level of quality (other than lack of a certain colour, obviously). I give this palette a 4 only because I only use three of the colours on a regular basis (white, silver, and teal).
