Oh my goodness, one of the reviewers below me hit the nail right on the head when describing this palette: neutral but potent. Couldn't have said it better myself. I have seriously gotten so much use out of this little gem, I'm thinking of getting a backup. I shamefully missed out on picking up MAC's 'Dalliance' shadow, from the Mega Metal collection (I think that's what it was called?). The brow bone shade on the right is the closest thing to being a dupe, and it just so happens to be the shade I'm about to hit pan on. A light taupe with the slightest tinge of a golden cast. It's a smidge too dark to be a highlight for me, though it works beautifully, especially with green eyeshadows. It's an interesting, beautiful color that works great as an all-over lid color.
WnW is now notorious for their buttery soft shadows, and this is no exception. Any neutral lover out there, if you don't have this little palette already, GO GET IT. haha I don't care if you're a 'high-end makeup only' snob, if you were to buy one thing from Wet n Wild, get the Comfort Zone palette!
But the only cons I can think of for the 8-pans are, of course, the fact that they're only 'shimma shimma,' and, (I think this goes for all shadows from WnW), but the shadows can break very easily in their pans. The bottom left Definer shade in this palette keeps crumbling every time I open it, and it's starting to aggravate me, but other than that, nothing I can't live with. Also, the massive amount of fallout I get from these shadows just can't be ignored, and when I tap my brush, most of the shadow is gone from the brush before I can even apply it. But other than that, they're insanely pigmented, easy to blend, and are long-wearing when worn with a good primer (much longer than an 8-hour workday, sometimes lasting up to 12 hours without fading). I do feel like I have to incorporate other eyeshadows from other palettes whenever I want to do a look with this palette, because the shades ARE so shimmery and sparkly, that I'm afraid it'll look like shimmer overdose and muddled together. I never use more than two eyeshadows in Comfort Zone for one look. And I do like the quality of their 6-pan palettes and trios a lot better, but I just had to give this palette 5/5, because even though it's not practical enough to use on its own without pulling out other shadows of different finishes, these are perfectly nice for being accent colors, and three of the colors in this palette are unique enough that I would purchase this palette again, and also for the Dalliance and Club dupes.
WnW has quickly become my holy grail of eyeshadows...fantastic texture..smooth, easy blending..soft, highly pigmented colors, and you just cannot beat the price, hands down. The shadows are extremely soft, and the package should be handled with care, as it's not the most sturdy. So many beautiful looks can be created with this one. Love the mixture of greens and browns, and the light shimmers. Each one is more luxurious and gorgeous and rich than the last. And to say that about a drugstore line with this pricetag, it's phenominal.
OMG! I forgot I had this palette and I broke it out this morning. I use it and get to work, log onto MUA and see the review of it front and center!
I love the shades in this one. They are neutral but potent. I tend to agree with the name...Comfort Zone.
I tend to gravitate to nude/neutral palettes and I have far too many of them.
What I like and hate about this palette at the same time is the amount of shimmer. The shades are rich and iridescent (IMO). One of the shades looks dark green but then it looks to have hues of black and dark brown.
This palette is highly pigmented and the colors blend perfectly and look natural yet provide punch on my C5 skin tone.
Love the colors! They're very wearable and richly pigmented. The deepest colors, crease and definer shades, are super gorgeous! They last a long time without any fading and you really only need to use a little bit. The only problem is that on the way home after purchasing this, one of the definer shades broke and made a huge mess over the other shadows! So be cautious when handling.
love this pallet the colors are amazing rich and very pigmented! staying power is great last all day just make sure u use a good eye primer! love wet & wild they have really stepped up there game! continued >>
this is a great palette! very pigmented and beautiful colors. lots of mac dupes as well.
I'm giving it a 3 because I do like the greens in this palette. The browns and sands are nice too but they're a dime a dozen and easy to find.
The packaging is the same old WnW packaging, pain in the neck to break the seals and a pain to open each and every time I use it.
What I don't like about this palette is the formula. It'll stay on just fine with a primer, but it actually crumbles in the palette. There's fallout before you even get near it. It just seems to me that my earlier palettes were a better quality in that respect; no crumbling and I'm sorry but that really ruins these for me. This will be my last drugstore eyeshadow bandwagon. Chanel, Lauder, Dior, here I come.
I stalked all the drugstores for weeks until I found it earlier this year. I generally like Wet n Wild eyeshadows but I'm not crazy about this palette. The shades are very pigmented but problem is that they do not look so great on me. Some of the colors are muddy and dull on my NC40-42 skin and lose their shimmer once applied. The highlighter shade is chunky and looks chalky on me too. I suppose maybe it's my skin coloring? I used the darker color as liners a few times and each time, there were problems with transferring despite the fact that my eyelids are dry, I use primer, and I hardly ever experience problems with creasing/transferring. I thought I would reach for this more often, but I can't remember the last time I used it. The only shade I really like from the entire palette is the MAC Club dupe but it's a repeat from the limited edition Night Elf palette which I also own. I can live without this palette..I wouldn't rebuy it. I also need to add that the Kat Von D Ludwig palette people are comparing this to is better quality and the colors aren't the same. Ludwig contains two mattes (black and brown). Comfort Zone is all shimmer with no matte shades.There is not a MAC Club dupe in the Ludwig palette.
This is a great product for the price. The colors are very pigmented. The pallete is very shimmery and metallic. I got this palette because I saw the Kat Von D Ludwig palette, which I though was beautiful but pricey. The wet n wild colors are comparable to the Ludwig palette and are so much cheaper. One bad thing is that certain eyeshadows are very soft so one must use a light hand when applying.
Love this palette! Quality shadows, highly pigmented, many combinations. Great for casual (with a light hand) days, and definitely for nighttime, I would definitely get more, especially for e price! This particular palette has copper, neutral, and darker green shades. Easy to blend too, but definitely use a light hand then build...it can go on a lot heavier than you expect!
