Love these colors, they work well with my eyes and skin tone.They are very soft--applies easy, and very pigmented. The packaging sucks, but whatever--the product is very good! The price is also right--$2.99 @ the drugstore, not too bad!
I bought this on a whim and I'm glad that I did!! I was actually surprised to see these colors at a drugstore, but at the same time, I was relieved that I wouldn't have to drop a ton of $ at Sephora to try colors like these out.
Anyway! My favorite is the bottom shade. It's a bright, neon green. I have blue/green eyes and it actually makes them POP. I haven't used the other two colors much.
As with most Wet 'n Wild packaging, it's flimsy and cheap.
Even though this is one of my least reached for pallets it is my favorite for a bright eye or ifI need a green. The shadows arevery pigmented and silky. Another hit from wet n wild
Thought these colors may be too bright on my very fair skin but gave it a shot since it was so cheap. The brightest green, when applied is actually very wearable and not scary at all. Love this trio
The green I feel for this, can only be obtained by taking my bra off of after a tiring eight hour day.
The colours are amazingly bright, even brighter if you do apply it over a white base. However, you do need a primer or else it will bleed and turn all oily. Also it's not very good if its applied wet, like some eyeshadows just blossom if they're applied wet, yeah this one isn't it.
I sometimes even use the middle green one as an mock-eyeliner with my small angled brush. It really pops out my eyes, and great for Holiday Events.
I would buy it again--if I can find it again.
This is the first super bright eye shadow(s) I've purchased in quite a while. Having *very* fair skin (slightly lighter than MAC NC15), with dark hair and dark eyes, as well as being 30y/o now, not all super bright colors work well for me :(
The first time I tried this I was a little disappointed - I usually like how green eye shadows look on me but I felt all three of these shades used together (on me) were a bit *too* bright overall and kind of washed me out :( So this trio sat for several weeks until I recently saw on a beauty blog some eyeshadow tips for my eye shape, and they were done in bright green. So I whipped this out again but applied a brown cream base first (Maybelline Bad To The Bronze ColorTattoo) and I'm absolutely in love with the look I get with this trio + a darker base! I doesn't *have* to be the Bad To The Bronze color tattoo - Now that I've gotten the hang of it I use it with many other "base colors" -some cream and some powder. (In my experience thus far though, these shades seem to work better with cream bases).
I've also found a way that I like using the trio without a darker base - just using the two bottom shades (the one's labeled "lid" and "crease"), and adding a kohl eyeliner and smudging it to heck and back ;) It creates a kind of messy look and makes them not so insanely bright and scary on me.
I've also experienced very minimal fall out with these three shades. If you apply with a dry applicator or brush, I'd reccomend tapping it first to get any loose e/s off before taking it up to your eye. It's very minimal fallout, but there is a little. No where near as much as I've experienced from other WnW eye shadows though. You can also apply these wet and get zero fallout as well as a more intense look :)
At my local CVS store this trio was $2.99 which is really a steal for how pigmented these shades are. &Most US drugstores (CVS, RiteAid, Walgreens) offer BOGO sales from time to time on WnW products as well, making them even *less* expensive!
The I Dream Of Greenie trio consists of 3 different shades of green. The "browbone"/top shade is the lightest and definately my least favorite. It's rather sheer and not extremely flattering when used as a browbone shade on me :(
The middle "crease" shade is my fave of the three. It's the darkest of the three, but by NO means what I'd call a "dark green" - just the darkest of this paticular trio. But it is the shade that I really *pack* on ontop of my darker base shades.
The bottom is the "lid" shade and also a nice, flattering shade of green. It's a little lighter than the "crease" shade and a little more bold as well.
Overall, since these shades are so intense and bright, it's not a trio that I personally can pull off on a daily basis so I imagine it will last me a *very* long time. Even if it didn't, considering the price and how flattering it is when I do use these, I'd definately repurchase and reccomend for anyone looking to create a brighter eye look :) continued >>
I do not agree whatsoever with a 4.3 overall rating for this product. The shadows are super pigmented but these are so loosely packed that the eyeshadows CRACK APART & end up everywhere. I depotted them to put in my z palette & they CRUMBLED. I have depotted other trios and have not run into this problem. Such a shame because these shadows are beautiful. I suggest keeping them in the original packaging if you're thinking of purchasing this trio. continued >>
I recently went on a WnW kick and started buying/swapping for them. This was one I bought. I was actually quite hesitant to buy it because it has string greens. After sitting in my mu box for a few weeks I finally decided to use it. I'm so greatful I did. The eyelid shade is BEAUTIFUL. It can be layered on the lid for a lighter shade or built up for a brighter lime-y color. The crease shade is really quite pigmented and one shouldn't apply much pressure when picking up the shadow with a brush. It compliments the eyelid color really well and gives it the right touch of darkness for the crease, but still giving it a bright look. The browbone shade is sort of minty and really shimmery. I applied this with a light brush as I was really unsure how this would look. Again, however, it was just right and it completed the trio nicely.
One user said the colors shouldn't be used together, but i disagree. I think they all go well and can be used together to create a fun look without looking too crazy(again this is my opinion). But if you wanted to add to it, that is obviously easy to do.
But again, I like this trio and glad I did take the chance. I see myself using the eyelid color more than the others. WnW should make a single of this color.
I bought this palette for the bright green, and I am definitely not disappointed. Its super pigmented, soft, easy to work with, and definitely lasts a good while when you use a primer. Clearly you should NOT follow the directions and use these 3 colors together.. I can't imagine that working out for anyone. I use colors from the Vanity palette to tone these down, and you can create about a million looks with just those two palettes.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
I've been looking for a great, bright, neon-ish lime green for a while now. The only shade of green I ever liked came in a set of Physician's Formulas shadows, of all things, and I dropped it and broke it. D: I looked for almost a year for a new one, as the PF palette apparently wasn't being made anymore or at least I couldn't find it...and nobody made a green I liked. None of the brands at Sephora or Ulta had one. Sure there were bright greens, but they were more like astroturf green or something.
I saw this in the drugstore one day and remembered people raving about WnW shadows, but just assumed that the hype was from people talking out their butt. But it was cheap, the lime green was the exact colour I had been looking for, so I gave it a shot and OH EM GEE.
I would buy this over and over just for the lime colour (the "eyelid" colour). The light colour is nice, I'm not sure about the middle one (the payoff is fine, I just haven't found a look that can use the shade best). The colours are so plush, so vivid, and long lasting. They never crease and never end up all over my cheeks. As for people who say this flies everywhere in a green powder, I wouldn't know. I apply my shadows wet, just a matter of application preference.
I feel cheated and lied to by prestige brands, no joke. I cannot believe you can get shadows THIS AMAZING for so insanely cheap. I'd feel I had my money's worth if I had spent $35 on this palette, straight up. Though for $35 I'd hope for slightly better packaging (the plastic on this is cheap and scary-breakable).
