Wet n Wild eyeshadows deserve a place amongst my Urban Decay, Chanel, Guerlain, MAC, RBR, and Tarina Tarantino. I love the finish that this trio imparts onto my eyes. It just makes them look glowy and incandescent. While theres a little bit of fallout, it doesn't matter because the pigmentation and quality is so high.
Don't like the packaging, but the shadow is great. Feels and looks much more expensive than it is. Stays on all day with no creasing (with primer).
I honestly thought I wouldn't like this when I got it but I decided to pick it up anyway because it was so raved about. I'm really glad I did. This is a staple in my makeup collection. The texture and pigmentation is better than a lot of eyeshadows out there and probably the best in the drugstore. The colors are great for every day wear. The only cons is of course the packaging (dropped it once and everything shattered but since it was so cheap and readily available I got another one) and sometimes the colors can be a little too shimmery for my taste. Overall I think everyone should have this in their collection. I especially love the brown as a crease shade with another matte brown. Adds depth!
So, so sad you all - I was so excited to try this Color Icon Trio. Just looking at the colors, it seemed like it would work perfectly on my eyes, but alas it did not. The browbone and eyelid colors DO look good, so I'm planning to keep the kit and search for another color to blend them with. It's the middle crease color, a basic medium/dark brown, that is so disconcerting once on my lid. Another user suggested the coppery/bronze color would bring out green eyes, but instead it makes me look like a 16 year old who snuck into her mom's eyeshadows stash and is trying to look grown up. There's seriously something "off" when I put it on; I think the shade is has too many gold undertones, and that just doesn't work with my pale, cool toned skin. Urgh, so frustrating. Perhaps it's just me. This is the second Color Icon Trio I've tried that's fallen short of my expectations, but at least this one has two redeeming shades I'll work with.
Love this - my every day ES (though Stila Kitten is a fav). WNW is a no-guilt buy and I use the product over and over.
Everyday eye shadow. Price u cannot beat. Why didn't I know about these sooner!!!!!
Pretty much my go-to HG trio for an everyday neutral look.For such an unbelieveable price point, these eye shadows are amazing: smooth, buttery, velvety, very pigmented and with a primer (currently I use MAC paint pot in Soft Ochre), these last all day. The colors look pretty average in the palette, but on the eye, they almost seem to glow from within. All three colors are shimmery, but not glittery, and even on my crepey eyes, they're perfect. Contrary to most reviews, my favorite is the middle crease color, which looks like a basic medium/dark brown in the pan, but on my eyelid it becomes a gorgeous coppery/bronze color. I have dark brown hair and hazel eyes, and this color looks amazing on my eyes, really bringing out the color. I bet it would look even more amazing on blue or green eyes. Paired with a coppery brown liner (I used Flirt! Brownie Points), just the brown crease color on my lid, black mascara,and it looks amazing. Probably my only con would be the packaging; sometimes it's hard to open it, and i usually end up dropping one of the little brushes. Small price to pay for such an amazing trio though, love it :)
I don't understand the rave reviews for this product - sure it's a nice palette and the shadows are quite highly pigmented, but many other drugstore palettes are just as good and have more exciting colors. For the price it's good but I wouldn't buy it again.
This brand continues to amaze me. I first started using the single shadow Nutty, then Brûlée. I wore them both almost the entire summer. It was so easy to travel with just these two small shadows. Then when these trios came out I purchased Eggshells first then Sweet as Candy. I'm ready to get a few others. I will say that I have a tendency to mix these with matte shades rather than use the palettes entirely on their own but that's just personal taste. All of the colors are very pigmented and last all day. I think my expensive shadows are getting jealous. :)
This is a really good every day eye palette. It isn't the most exciting palette out there, but it is a very good workhorse. You can create a very simple, polished look using only this palette and some liner. It is pretty warm-toned, but I think that most lighter skintones can probably still pull it off quite easily.
