WOW! the WetnWild Coloricon Trios have been a true gift from the makeup gods for frugal money savvy girls like myself. Thank you wnw for giving us amazing shadows to use! PRICE/AVAILABILITY- The WetnWild Coloricon Trios will cost you only $2.99 yeah under $3. it may vary slightly depending on your area and where you purchase it- you can find these in drugstores like Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, etc as well as Walmart & Target. SHADE/FORMULA- Cool as a Cucumber is one of my more darker toned trios from the older set but has some gorgeous greens & a purple shadow. They are all beautiful & i dont own many shadows like these. At first i thought id hardly use this one but i was wrong. This trio is great to add some drama or a pop of color to your look.They are labeled so ill go from the labels- Brow Bone- this is such a pretty pastel light green. whats so nice about it is that is has a more matte finish. its just really pretty for all over the lid- it has almost a flash of yellow for its undertone Crease- this color is one of my favorite purples i own. it looks like a deep eggplant purple. it does show up a tad lighter on the skin but its so unique in that its a metallic sheen to it, almost duochromed. a unique color from the drugstore. this color looks great paired w/ these greens or any brown, gray, well any color. great for adding depth to crease or outer v. Can also use wet for a nice liner. i love this shadow, wish they sold it own its own Eyelid- this is also a gorgeous color. its a nice dark hunter forest green. has a sheen to it when on the eye. its so pretty on the eye. Its one of those shadows that can be sheered out for a light green or in certain lights look darker. great for adding depth as well in the crease or outer v or can be used on the lid. all three shadows are gorgeous. but with this trio, i myself couldnt pull of the look using these in the suggested areas. I just rather have more of a skintone color for the browbone, not a green. but using this for looks- amazing. i havent found many colors like this that are actually pigmented & show up like these. i have dark brown eyes & this colors make them stand out! all are very well pigmented, go on super smooth. almost feel like butter, apply & blend well. i even use cheaper brushes & they work. pigmentation is the best from the drugstore, i was def impressed. theyve made me want more and more! of the trios i own, this is one of the trios i reach for when i want some color & depth since two of these shadows are darker. I love the colors in this one. so pretty! PACKAGING- this is a rectangular compact that is glossy black backing with labeling and how tos on where and how to place these 3 shadows on the eye area. great for beginners to learn placement. there is a clear see thru hard plastic snap shut lid. the shade is on the sticker and back. this is def sturdy and compact. great for travel and and on the go. slips in to pockets even. does come with two applicators, a sponge tip applicator that is actually pretty good as well as this bristled brush that has a weird angle to it. its weird but you dont have to use them but ive seen a video where it did work for blending so to each their own. overall, Cool as a Cucumber is another great trio from WNW. These one is less talked about in the makeup world, i dont understand though since these colors have to be dupes for more HE brands. i love these trios and Cool as A Cucumber does have some amazing shadows! i love it and im sure most people will too since we all need some color every now & then! give em a try esp if you love great shadows! they are affordable, amazing quality and esp since they are from a cruelty free company, i love you wetnwild! i will add some pictures and swatches and an update if anything changes!
