I love this shadow but it needs a primer like a jumbo pencil underneath to show up as the great color it is.This is a jungle green type color with multi- colored shimmer.I love this with nutty on the lid and this on the crease.
The only reason I wouldn't repurchase because Annabelle cosmetics makes one that is slightly more pigmented and it doesn't need a primer

Envy applied on eyelid lighter than it looks in the pan, which is nice, since most my green eyeshadows tend to apply darker than it looks. This is a green that others can tell even if you are wearing glasses. Applies smooth, great pigmentation. Can't beat the price as well!

I was looking for a dupe for UD Mildew and this looked very similar in the package. However, I had the same problem with this as I did with all of the other greens I tried (including, eventually, Mildew) - it looks much lighter on skin than it does in the package. I want a dark, black-based army green shadow and I have just had no luck.
This is a medium green with a neutral tone. As with other WNW shadows, the pigmentation is good and the shadow texture is very smooth. Lasts for hours and hours without budging. If you're looking for a good standard green shadow for practically no money, look no further.

One of my favourite green's of all time is Rock & Republic 'Envy'. I'm always in search of a green similar to that as a dupe.
I can't really say much regarding the colour, to each their own I guess. For me this is a very vibrant bright ultra metallic green, either wet or dry its a beautiful colour. I can't use this colour at all. For me, gone are the days when I can wear anything and get away with it. It's too loud.
I love this, I'll use it as a shadow liner. I just can't wear it like I do with all my other shadow.

Another hit from the W&W singles! This is more of an olive green on my skin than it appears in the palette, which I like. It also has a faint blue sheen at just the right angle, and a subtly pearly finish without being a frost -- in short, I was curious when I bought the shadow and delighted when I opened it and swatched it. Velvety, buttery, easy to blend. I really wish W&W made these singles in more colors!

I don't really like this. Takes few layers for the color to show up so it's a minus for me. I normally don't have the time in the morning. The package of the one I got is not too bad though. I don't find it's too difficult to open. Won't repurchase.

This green doesn't exactly show up as very green once applied. That's okay actually, making it more natural. It leans toward the neutral on my gray eye. It's applies and blends like buttah, but the packaging isn't too good. For $1.99, I ain't complaining exactly. What I find is that, if I shut this little compact open, I'm going to have to go and get a kitchen knife to pry this thing open. Like trying to break into Fort Know.
I use this all over the lid, but Envy would also be a nice contour in the V-zone outside each eye. W/ Wet & Wild, why should anybody pay serious money for eyeshadow?

This little powerhouse is GORGEOUS! Greenish/gold eyeshadows are a weakness of mine. I have so many different variations. I remember when I was in Jr.High. Wet n' wild was pretty much any of us could afford. It was low quality back then. Now they can pretty much be compared with some of the higher end companies. Good product for less money. This looks great on. Glad I didn't pass this by.

My boyfriend never really notices my make up in a general "wow" kind of way, he likes me without it, but that's besides the point. Anywho, when I wore this he said "Hey, look at that eye shadow!" Not sure if he was being sarcastic or what, but he smiled.
I'm very very pale with blue eyes and red hair, so this really pops out on me. The only drawback is that it's waaaay too sparkly for my tastes for daytime wear. Now, the middle of the road rating I gave is due to it's staying power, and it's also difficult to blend with other colors. Plus this will last me forever, so I doubt I will HAVE to buy another one. :)
It's a wearable, lovely green for anyone's make up arsenal. Must be very popular, too. I had to go to 3 different stores because it was sold out at the first two!

WNW Coloricon Line rocks the makeup world! They are amazing quality for such little money that it should make Mac & other HE companies lower their prices instead of raising them whole other conversation-
Envy or any of the WNW Coloricon eyeshadow single shadows can be found where your WNW products are sold like drugstores being CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid as well Target& Walmart. Price will vary depending on your location as well sales/discounts but Ive seen these places for always around $1.99 so yeah less than $2 for a whole bunch of great shadow is super great! very affordable
Envy is such a gorgeous dark true green. it does have a slight hunter green under tone in some lighting or it always looks a little more bright in some lighting. It does have somewhat of a metallic sheen to it. It shows up darker in the crease and lighter on the lid. Its great paired with different cream bases to bring out different undertones. Its a great affordable dupe of Mac Humid eyeshadow that would cost you $14 or so- this is a must have green eyeshadow! i love greens & this one looks amazing no matter how you use it! it can make a great bright vivid eye or toned down for a more neutral eye or smoked out! The formula is super buttery smooth. Its so easy & nice to apply & blend. What gorgeous green you see in the pan is what you will get. Pigmentation is unreal & so great. unreal that its drugstore. Staying power is wonderful- on its own is def 6 hrs or more Add a primer & a cream base- you will have to remove this shadow with a wipe or a remover. it stays fresh & beautiful!
This is a hard hard plastic mini compact in the shape of a square. black shiny logo/name/info is located on the sticker on the back. the front is see thru. Snap closure which sometimes is super hard to open on the one i own. I know some say its not hard to open theirs but most of mine are so hard to open. i dunno if its my nails or the packaging. the pan size is awesome. its a little bigger than a quarter & the pan is pretty deep so you get an incredible amount of shadow. to be exact- you will have 0.06oz or 1.17grams- it will take forever for me to get thru this. I love how much you get. super nice. I wish it was a little easier to open. thats all bc ive cracked a little bit of the shadow so i had to press it down a bit w/ some spritz of alcohol. but other than that- these are so incredible. i wish they'd release more of these single shadows. *Which they just did release a set of shimmer singles? i can never find these new items so hopefully ill find them somewhere & review those as well.
Overall, amazing green shadow. my favorite green shadow that i own. I love using this on my lower lash line for a pop of color w/ a neutral look- wow! def try these Coloricon single shadows. esp Envy- if you have been eyeing Macs Humid- def pick this up! Its so fun to mix this with a brown or blue shadows, wow! I am afraid of most color but this works!

Gorgeous green!! Very similar to the green in the 'cool as a cucumber' trio, but this is much more pigmented and more buttery. However, it is not similar to the green in 'pride' IMO as a previous poster mentioned. If you look very closely, that is almost a blue-green and this is more of a yellow based green. Very striking with red hair and freckles!

I don't normally wear green eyeshadow, but this is an exception. It's pigmented and shimmery, and I use very little since the green comes out so well already. It makes my brown eyes 'sparkle' and I've recieved many compliments when wearing it. High quality product for 99 cents? Love it.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Fair, Cool Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Green
Very pretty, very nice, versatile green. Can be sheered down for a light wash, or wet and a liner. It's pretty, but very shimmery, and VERY similar to the color of the green shadow in the ColorIcon palette Pride.
Not something I reach for all of the time, but good to have on hand for us green eyed/hazel gals. I like it when I want to look dramatic. As usual, good quality; doesn't feel cheap at all.

I love this color it reminds me a lot of mac's swimming. The color is so vibrant and the shimmer is very subtle. I own almost all of these singles.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Dark, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I love this colour! I have caramel coloured skin and this green makes my brown eyes pop. It's shimmery (not sparkly) and quite pigmented for the price--approx $2.60 CAD. It's definitely worth a try! :)

This is comparable to MAC's Humid for color, but I think pigmentation it is slightly weaker than Humid. BUT hey for this price!!!???? This does the job as well (just pack a bit more on). I would recommend this if you don't already have Humid.

I'm not one to wear green eyeshadow but after seeing swatches and reviews of it online, I knew I had to pick it up. The color payoff is phenomenal wet or dry, with or without a base. The texture is soft, smooth and buttery, and it lasts well throughout the day with a primer underneath (haven't tried it without a primer since using a primer is a must in a tropical country such as the Philippines).
I can't compare this to MAC Humid since I don't have it YET, but when I get the chance to pick it up, I'll definitely come back to update this review.

I read that this was a dupe for Mac humid. I'm realizing theirs more and more dupes of their shadows in drugstore brands so I haven't bought any Mac shadows in a while. This green is so pigmented and Smokey looking. It would go perfect with a gold eyeshadow or turned into a green Smokey eye. This and nutty were my first w&w single eyeshadows. I like what I see. Super impressed.

This shadow was my first Wet and Wild purchase. I know W&W from back in the day.....waaaaaay back in the day. Aside from having black lipstick they pretty much were a forgettable item.
I keep hearing raves about their shadows now so I saw this beauty for about 1.99 and figured I would give it a whirl. First off, for all those reviewers complaining about this going on sheer...get yourself a primer..seriously.
I applied this over UDPP and this was every bit as nice as MAC Humid...maybe even slightly better. This is rich, bright green, slightly brighter then Humid. On bare skin it was loose and sheer but over primer this shadow comes to life. It is silky, with a buttery finish and highly blendable.
Now I am not saying W&W are going to be good enough to replace MAC, but for $1-$2 a pop I would feel very comfortable picking up any shades that caught my eye.
* Note I lied, I forgot I did pick up a palette a while back. Pretty much had the same opinions on it, only I really did';t like the colors as much as I thought I would, but the matte shades in particular has amazing color payoff and were not really fallouty and sheer like some MAC colors.

I don't wear green eye shadow often, so I didn't want to spend a ton of money on it, and since I have been quite satisfied with my other Wet'N'Wild shadows, I decided to give Envy a try. I was not disappointed. It is a very vivid green color. I love it when applied wet. My only problem with it, is the packaging. But I would still repurchase.
