Now I understand these reviews that start off saying "If I were on a desert island, (and needed to look fabulous... because why not)... "

If I were on a desert island, and I could only bring 3 eyeshadow palettes with me from my collection, they would be:
1. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
2. Colourpop Kathleen Lights "Where the Light is" Collection
3. THIS

Is the packaging adorable? Certainly not, but its lack of frills does make this slim & travel friendly. I would much prefer excellent performance and versatility to adorable packaging. I'll be honest though-- at first I wasn't won over. I loved the intense pigmentation and blendability of these shadows right away. However I won't pretend like I can get an everyday look out of this, unless I plan to stroll out to the grocery store NBD with a serious smokey eye. (Though I suppose if I am going to glam it up on my desert island, then I could be a grocery store diva too?)

That last point may seem like a huge shortcoming, and truth be told, that is my biggest con with this palette. But I'll explain my desert island list, and why those 3 products sing wonderfully together. I'll try to describe this a bit generally, to make sure my (rather long) review still serves a purpose for those without those other two products.

*Blendability, Lasting power, and pigmentation: Even though this little trio is the cheapest item on my list, it holds up to the other two products. The formulas of the three play well together in all senses--they blend with each other, they are all pigmented, and no one item/shade/formula will awkwardly outlast another. Being honest, I have oily eyelids so I always wear a primer, and never wear any powder shadow without it. Thus I have never tried this trio without it. But even with cheapo ELF primer, it doesn't seem to have a problem.

*Color selection: I love all the colors in here, and have found uses for each one. I don't ever use a shimmery highlight because I have hooded lids, and certainly not a frosty pink with my very yellow undertone, so I use the browbone highlight as a face highlighter. (I do wish it was the smallest pan of this trio.) I find that the dark brown is close enough to matte so I use it either as a crease shade and/or a powder to set creme eyeliner. Is it super unique? probably not, but that's my everyday workhorse shade. The cool toned purple-silver-taupe shade is my favorite of the three. I like having it just in the center of my eyelid.

*Balance: Especially in my collection of mostly warm eyeshadows, this trio's color selection bring in a nice balance. The dark brown in here is the darkest color offered across all 3 of my palette list, so I use it to set eyeliner or deepen up a look regardless of what colors I choose from these 3. The cool taupe pairs nicely with the cooler shades of the Chocolate Bar palette. (To help compare, the purple tone of this will probably play nicely with Candied Violet, and the silver-taupe tones with Haute Chocolate.) I am pretty convinced that the browbone color dupes Marzipan from Chocolate Bar palette.

(omg longest review ever for such a slim little trio, but I hope this helped! thanks for reading!)

I was looking through my makeup on my vanity and I found this treasure. I think we may all be guilty of purchasing makeup and leaving it in the package until we use it which may be months or purchasing makeup and forgetting that we have it somewhere. I completely forgot I had a few more eye shadow palettes from wet n wild. I found the spoiled brat palette and the silent treatment palette . I would like to purchase the sunburned palette as well. OK back to the review. Another great eye shadow palette from Wet n wild . The colors work well together also you don't have to stick to the color placement of the colors . I would play around with how you and where you apply the colors to you eyelid. For example the brow bone color is a nice shimmery pink and can be used on the lid with the other two colors to add that smokey look. In essence I believe the eye shadow trios from wet and wild are meant to take the guess work out of the smokey eye and give you colorsin each trio that complement one another. The instructions on the eye shadow is good for beginners but I think it is always think you should make a makeup look your own. With help on how to apply a smokey I watched quite a lot of smokey eye makeup tutorials and it is quite easy to do now I just like playing with different colors to see what color I like best. All in all a great palette and inexpensive . I want to get a few more Wet n wild eye shadow palettes to add to my makeup collection.

I really love this little palette but only for one shade. The bottom taupe shade is absolutely gorgeous. Depending on what other shadows I combine it with, it seems to pull in whatever shade it's been paired with so it can look warmer or cooler depending on how I use it. The other two shades in the palette are just ok in terms of shades. The top shade doesn't do much for me either way and the middle shade looks muddy. For reference, I'm very fair with neutral tones. The quality of all the shadows is excellent. They blend effortlessly and last well over a primer. At this price, I would highly recommend purchasing, if only for that gorgeous taupe shade.

The only reason I haven't decluttered this is for the grey/purple shade in this trio. It's good enough that I keep this.

I'm not a big fan of the light pink/dark brown shades in here. I don't think they're Wet n' Wild's greatest eyeshadows at all. HOWEVER, the bottom shade is amazing. I have never seen a color like it before.

It's purple... but it's grey. It's a nice change of neutral brown but it doesn't look crazy. In fact, it still looks neutral. It's super versatile - you can wear it for a night out or for a simple look at work.

This is an awesome product for the quality and the price. This was my first Wet n Wild eye shadow palette, and I'm impressed. I would like to try more of the trios because of the quality of this one. The colors go great together and you can do different looks with it from deep and smoky to natural. I use the browbone shade as a cheekbone highlight sometimes and it works. You can go really dramatic and dark with the crease shade. I use that as an eyeliner sometimes. My favorite is the eyelid shade and it's beautiful. That's what drew me in to buy this palette. These are long lasting and pigmented. I would repurchase and recommend this palette.

This is probably my favorite, or in the top three at least, of any eyeshadow set I've ever bought. (And I've bought a lot over the years.) I was actually surprised to find that because normally I lean more toward plums and greens, but this trio -- with a pale warm pink, a taupe that's sort of a perfect hybrid of lavender/gray/taupe, and the almost-black hue that has a smidge of shimmer bordering on glitter -- has really impressed me. All the shadows apply nicely and smoothly with that soft, buttery texture. I never bother to use a primer with this, it performs so well for me. I tend to put the pale shade toward the inner corner of my eye, the taupe on the outer half and then line and define with the darkest shade. I like the result, and I've gotten the most compliments on the colors from this palette than from anything else I've ever worn.

There mustbe something wrong with my eyelids. With a primer and theey did not last 3 hours. I am highly disappointed because even 3 euros is too much when you spend it on ineffective products. That is not a MAC dupe by no means. They look so good but do not last long. Sorry guys!

This eyeshadow trio is great. The colours are very flattering and the texture of the shadows is fantastic. Very pigmented, soft and easy to blend. Today I used this with a NYX jumbo eyepencil (Milk) underneath it to make the colours pop and it turned out really nice. Considering the low price this is excellent value for money.

This one and walking on eggshells are my favorites. The eyelid taupe shade is very close to Macs satin taupe. I don't care for the crease shade much. I use the eyelid shade and blend it slightly in my crease for a natural look, it compliments my green eyes. I'm so impressed with these trios.

I had written off Wet n Wild after I discovered their eyeshadows had parabens. On a whim, I picked this trio up and decided to read the ingredients and discovered there was no parabens, so I bought it. I am very pleased. I love all 3 colors. I use the brow shade for my lid and the eyelid color for the outer v and crease and the crease shade as liner. I love how it looks on me. They're not overly shimmery, which is a problem that I had with the walking on eggshells trio from them. Anyway I love this trio and definitely recommend.
