About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
I have to be honest, while I found the quality of these shadows to be superb (smooth, buttery, pigmented) I didn't like how much shimmer is in these (would have been so much better as mattes!) nor am I a fan of how warm the shadows look on me. It's not as flattering as I would have hoped for this basic trio.
Highly pigmented, great wear, love the colors, this palette is a steal. I have a love-hate relationship with wet n wild but this is my so far favorite palette from them. Such a buttery texture, easy to apply.
Only downside is the 'brow bone' shade isn't that flattering on the browbone but is gorgeous on the inner tear duct area as a inner corner highlight
This stuff is the bomb. The colors are so pigmented and last all day (with a primer). They are a bit powdery but just a tap of your brush and your good to go. I wear this every day and I will repurchase when I run out and for $3 you can't go wrong with these shadows
I really enjoy this trio. It gives be a great natural eye look fast. I reach for this when I'm in a hurry and I always love the outcome! All the shadows in this trio are fairly pigmented, easy to blend, and all go on smooth.
First off, let me start by saying I'm someone who is really picky about eyeshadows, mostly because my skin is dry and my eye area/eyelids are also dry, so sometimes eyeshadow just feels chalky and exacerbates the existing dryness.
Some of my favourite brands include from TheBalm, Too Faced, Urban Decay - in other words, higher end stuff.
And I have to say, for the price, the quality is just so up there, I am absolutely shocked at how nice the shadows feel, and how long wearing they are.
There's never any creasing, and neutral shades in this particular trio are perfect for everyday use. My love for this has prompted me to purchase other WnW shadow palettes and I can't wait to see what they continue to release! A+
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.
