I like WnW products and stalked every wlagreens for this. lol I wasn't expecting a lot but i LOVE this palette. MY favorite is the 2nd shade (left side) and the 4th shade on right side (duochrome as someone mentioned it might be a dupe for MAC Club & some similar color was available in the Night Elf palette. But Love it :)
This palette didn't seem like it would be too amazing just looking at it, but it really didn't disappoint. The colors are much more pretty in real life than they seem in swatches online. Also, every shade in my palette is soft and pigmented -- none are chalky. I don't have the blue one in this series, but this is much better than "Petal Pusher". (That one was powdery or pressed super hard in the pans and there was hardly any color payoff for most of the shades. Maybe 3 shades were ok.)
I have some of the new trios also, and it seems sometimes the shadows are pressed very hard in the pans in those as well. My "Comfort Zone" is perfectly fine though so if you get one that's hard, maybe do an exchange because they're not all like that.
I actually like the Color Icon packaging (not too much fluff and you can see everything) though I'll admit that with the bigger palettes, there could possibly be an issue of sturdiness around the hinges after continued use.
Would definitely repurchase!
I love the actual shadows. They're very rich and wearable, and I didn't even need my eyeshadow primer. My only beef is with the packaging. This is the flimsiest case from WnW, just awful. I am definitely going to try to transfer these into a ghetto palette.
I'll try to make this review short and sweet. I attached a picture to show you the colors in this palette. First of all, all 8 shadows are insanely pigmented and they apply beautifully. They blend better than my MAC eye shadows. I don't own a lot of MAC eye shadows but for the one's that I have, I spotted 2 dupes in this palette. In the picture, top row going from left to right, the fourth color is a 100% better dupe to MAC's beauty marked. It's richer in color and the sparkles actually show up! It's such a stunning color. The second dupe is on the bottom, again the fourth one. A better dupe to Mac's club and an equal dupe to Too Faced labelwhore. I honestly haven't been so blown away by drugstore makeup as I have been today. The quality is outstanding if not better than high end eye shadows. If anyone thinks nothing is better than high end, then I encourage you to take a step into your local drugstore and pick up this palette and judge for yourself. Way to go wet n wild, you've truly come a long way in quality and I'm definitely a happy with my purchase.
This palette is AMAZING!!! They are sooo buttery and pigmented. The left side is ivories/ browns and the right side is olive greens.Here's a description of the colors.
Left side colors (browns)
Top color- A shimmey ivory with the tiniest specks of glitter.
2nd - A shimmery champagne color, slighty similar to "Fine Wink" from their old Mega eyes colors.
3rd- A nice light brown (again with shimmer)
4th - A dark brown with copper flecks. Similar to my twice baked UD shadow (but this is a little darker)
Right side (The greens)
Top- A shimmery taupe with a very slight olive tint to it.
2nd- (my fave) A mid tone shimmery green. a somewhat bright golden olive shade. (soooooo pretty)
3rd- A dark olive green with gold shimmers in it. Very pretty and very pigmented!
4th- This one gets a drumroll....... The dupe for MAC's Club shade is back and BIGGER than before!! I have the Night Elf palette and while WnW says they changed the formula, it's still the same color we all went bonkers over. It's a dark reddish/ brown with blue and green duochrome in it. ( I know you all know what it looks like, but I still felt I had to say it, LoL)
If you see it, buy it! I'm waiting for a sale to get a back up, but they aren't LE, so I don't have to spaz out again!
God, I really hate to admit this....I really do....but the quality in this palette surpasses many high-end shadows. The 2nd shade in this is even more pigmented than MAC's "All that Glitters" imo. The "Club" dupe is extraordinary. Every shade in this palette is so f****** gorgeous! Endless looks can be created. I'm too lazy to describe all the colors but they're gorgeous!
