This palette has become my GO-TO. Great Pigmentation. Soft but not too soft/loose where you get excess fallout in the pan as you swipe (some of ELFs shadows are like that). I dont use the colors as they were intended to be used (i.e brow bone eyelid and crease shades) You definitely get bang for you buck with this eyeshadow palette.
These eyeshadows are so pigmented, I love them! I have similar colors in MAC but these have a richer texture and better color payoff! This palette is ridiculously affordable. The only cons I can think of is the cheap packaging (conducive to broken shadows when dropped or bumped around), and a small amount of fall out you might get with the darker shadows.
This is a great neutral palette with a twist! All of the colors are very pigmented and the blue-brown "Definer" color in the bottom right corner is absolutely gorgeous! It's a very warm brown with a hint of a steel blue duochrome. I wore this yesterday to a hair appointment and every stylist there complimented my makeup, and asked what brand of makeup I was wearing! Needless to say, they were surprised that it was good ole' Wet N Wild. I dampened my brush to make it even more intense. A good dupe for MAC's Club eyeshadow, Blue Brown Pigment, or their new crushed metallic pigment in "I've Got a Crush on You".
This initially sat in my m/u drawer for a good few months after I bought it. I just thought the colors were way too shimmery for my taste. But I recently pulled this out and I'm loving it. While I mainly reserve this for weekend or going-out wear (still too shimmery for the daytime/office), I am obsessed with the 'browbone' shade on the green side. It's the most amazing green/taupe/grey color. I love wearing that on the lid with MAC omega in the crease to blend it out and then defining the outer V with the club 'dupe' in the palette.
Drawbacks to the palette are that it's flimsy and not travel-friendly by any means. Shadows crack very easily and are extremely powdery. And the shimmer factor...enough said.
Seriously, 8 eyeshadows for less than $5?! This palette is amazing beyond words. All of the eyeshadows are soft and SUPER pigmented. That being said, lets add a little warning. Be careful with this palette. Since the eyeshadows are soft, I've had a couple of the colors break a little but it was nothing bad and I don't take that as a knock to the product it all. The eyeshadows are just soft and apply to the eyes beautifully. For the darker shades especially, you just need the smallest amount to get rich color payoff on your eyes. The colors are beautiful and you can easily create a million different looks with this. Highly, highly recommend.
Love this palette! The price is great only $5 ! Really great palette for fall nice and pigmented colors not chalky at all. A great warm palette would defintely recommend don not crease at all.
I love this eyeshadow pallette. The colors are beautiful with great pigmentation. It comes with neutrals, Shimmer, highlights Everything you need really all in one little package. So many looks can me made with these colors. They staying power is great and the shadows can be used with or without a primer. It would be so easy to travel with instead of a pig bulky pallette. So affortable and I must have in my makeup collection
I love this so much a spotted it at walgreens and was immediately drawn to the colors they're so pretty. even better they actually stay on and the shadow quality is great. soft and pigmented. Great buy.
I looooove this palette like none other. The colors are magnificent, you can mix the two sides and use the dark green with the copper lid color, I just can't say enough what a great palette this is. The colors are just as pigmented as any high end eyeshadow, and honestly I like them better than UD because they are soft and pigmented, but I always always have creasing problems with UD eyeshadows but these are just dry enough that they don't crease, while remaining soft and pigmented. I looooooove this palette, what a great value, at $5 it's less than a dollar per shadow. The only bad thing is that they colors are so soft they can get ruined rather easily, I had this palette shipped to me as a swap extra and about 2/3rds of the copper color sadly just disintegrated, shattered entirely in the shipping process but there's still enough left for plenty of use and that was the only one that broke at all, the rest were in perfect shape. I will definitely purchase a new one when I've used up the remainder of the copper color!
This review is for Wet N Wild shadows in general - yes, they are wonderful, most of them are, anyway. They have a gorgeous texture and with primer, last beautifully all day. The price is amazing as well. The Comfort Zone palette is gorgeous, has a nice range of neutral shades, many that are suspiciously like colors in UD and other high end brands. Love the green-brown shade on the bottom right, I know Urban Decay sells a version of it - but I like the WnW one better, it's less red. The dark colors in this palette are very deep and pigmented - a little dusty, but they can be worked with. And the very light colors, which I don't use that much, are great highlight colors - and can even be used on the face.
My only complaint is with the mid tone colors, especially the neutrals and mostly the ones stamped "eyelid", and a few of the lighter crease colors. In the palettes, these shades are beautiful, and of an obvious color - but when swatched or put on the lids, they have so much shimmer and frost, that you sort of lose the color, and they pretty much look the same, the actual color is not as evident, and what you have is either a warm or cool toned taupey washed out version of what it looks like in the pan. They look so similar that I can often not even tell the difference between some of them once they are on. If you are a lover of shimmery mid toned shadows and don't care as much about obvious color, then this probably won't be a problem. If you like shimmery taupe shades, you'll be in heaven....
Not sure if this makes sense or if anyone else has noticed it. I still think these eyeshadows are a great buy, and kick the butt of many high end brands. I can't really speak for the brighter colors, because I don't buy them. I would still rebuy many of these palettes if I ran out - I just wish the mid range colors had more color and a little less shimmer.
