I never thought such an inexpensive product could be so nice, love the color, looks good with my green eyes, good pigmentation and blends well; over an eyeshadow base it lasts well too... I liked that this was sealed with a sticker, although the plastic lid looks cheap and I worry about it cracking like so many of my past d/s shadow lids have, despite that I would definitely buy this again
i love, LOVE these trios. These are the new reformulated & repackaged. I love this one the best. I am obsessed with the dark plum/maroon. All 3 shades are gorgeous. Pigmented, butter soft, blend so well & dont muddy up they stay true to themselves, not chalky at all and pressed well, hardly if not no fallout! So for around $1.99 im telling u, theyre awesome. I love the shades in this one for it makes my brown eyes look amazing. I find theyre almost just as great as their palettes. I love using the brown or dark plum/maroon as lid colors or as contour shades, and i often use the midtone pink peach shade as a blending shade for my crease. I can get alot of looks with these trios.Knock on Wood has a matte midtone peachy rose, a milk chocolate brown, & a dark plum maroon. I say theyre matte for in pan u see glitter but it doesnt go onto eye when applying. I use this one so much. I dont love the packaging but i dont hate it. Itr black on back with instructions/pic like maybelline quads & a hard clear plastic snap on flip open top. I like how i can see whats in it. Be careful not to rip the name sticker off. Other than that, im a huge fan of Wet n Wild coloricon collection. They amaze me. I hope they continue to release these AMAZINGLY great affordable cruelty free products. I will buy it all! I have all the trios and adore them all! and te new ones are hard to find right now. i wish these older ones esp this one got the hype the new ones ae getting bc theyre fantastic!!! i def will be wet n wilds biggest fan!!! i love these trios!! rem theyre extremely pigmented!! u need only the tiniest bit & they blend amazing!!!
I have seen it compared to different Mac shadows even the Spiced Chocolate Quad, i dont own Mac but im sure they are dupes for shadows but Id go as far as to bet these are better than Mac. I just know these are top notch eyeshadows. Im sure Nars maybe but im content with not paying $15 for one eyeshadow when i can pay a third of that and get 3. Knock on Wood is a great daytime trio and can def put the pizazz in a nite time look. i reach for this alot, esp now that its fall, whew these are beautiful. i just watched a tutorial on it and it made me pull it out today and use it, beautiful! all three shadows are so nice esp for a warm neutral look.
As another reviewer pointed out, the light pink is nothing special. The other two colors are fantastic and great quality for the price. I think I have just about every single one of WnW's new eyeshadow palettes and singles. They have really made an effort to compete with the other drug store brands as well as the higher end brands. The color payoff is great and they also blend well. It would be nice if they put some matte shades in for the crease but that is a minor complaint. I would recommend this for anyone who is at least medium skin toned. The brown and cranberry shades may be too deep for pale skin. Just my opinion. :-)
I agree with others- I think this is a beautiful palette for a night on the town. On my fair warm skin, it was too dark for a day look. However, I think the colors are just lovely. They are smooth, highly pigmented and blend well. Not my favorite (as I tend to go for "day look" makeup) however, for a special occasion, I'll definitely be reaching for this palette.
The shadow itself is gorgeous and lasts long on my oily eyelids. When I accidentally dropped the case, the brown shade crumbled,but I still have some for the next few applications. BE CAREFUL with this shadow because of the packaging.
Great product for a super cheap price! I JUST started experimenting with eyeshadows more, even though I'm in my mid-20s and should already know this stuff! I normally look and buy department store brands and brands sold at Sephora, but I came across this at a CVS and got it because it was so cheap and because I was looking for something to create a different type of smoky eye than just grays or blacks. It's a great trio that lasts all night (I've only worn it once at night) and looks great on my olive/tan skin tone. The highlight color would probably be the least best of the three, but that's because I'm not sure it was really showing up on my skin. But for $3? TOTALLY worth it. I'm excited to try Walking on Eggshells next for a more natural everyday look!
I love this trio! The aubergine is perfect, that's the main reason I bought it. I can make these subtle or I could probably use the crease color and make it more dramatic, though I haven't tried that out yet. The color payoff is great for something so unbelievably cheap.
Still love walking on eggshells better, but mainly because I have blue/grey eyes, and fair skin. This is perfect for night, since I don't pull off the dark smokey eye too well. But like the other review, this is a great bang for little buck. It can get chalky, but that's not something to not expect. The color payoff is nice, and usually the shades blend perfectly.
The light pink color is nothing special, the other two are nice. All three are well pigmented, so if you like the colors, it's a good deal for the price.
I was never really a fan of WnW products, but after purchasing some of the discontinued palettes and falling in love with them, I wanted to try some of the newer products.
I was looking for a good everyday neutral palette so I choose this color.
I honestly have to say that I don't care for it much. The colors just don't flatter my skin tone, or even show up well for that matter. I keep using it trying to get it to work for me but I have just come to the realization that this does not work for me. I may just keep trying b/c I hate to waste money.
