Very pigmented but the packaging isn't the greatest. Very difficult to open. For $2.99 I'm willing to repurchase if I happen to hit pan on it.

I was visting my first casino on my 22nd birthday, so I decided it would be cute to wear green eyeshadow while there. I was also curious to see if green eyeshadow would pair well with my green eyes, so I bought this palette because it was cheap enough and I knew that Wet n Wild had really brought up their game over the years.
I was certainly impressed by these shadows. The colors were bright and true to pan even without primer (although with primer they are slightly even brighter). Surprisingly, when blended together, sheer mint green ("browbone" color), emerald green (crease), and lime green (eyelid) compliment each other, and the colors made my green eyes pop.
And the longevity! This is what sold the palette for me. I applied the shadows on my birthday at 10 AM; even with eye rubbing and taking an hour long nap during the long ride home they were still going strong when I removed my eye makeup 14 hours later. Considering I have extremely oily skin this is particularly mind blowing to me. There was only minimal fading after all that time. I was worried that like green nail polish they would stain my eyelids but nope.
I really like this palette, but the reason I didn't give it a perfect five was because of two cons. First, the eyeshadows are fragile. When I was at the store all available stock had at least one broken eyeshadow on them. I had to clean out my palette to get as much broken crease color out of the other colors and the brush holder before I could use it. Also, I had some fallout problems with the crease color, though it was probably because I forgot to tap the excess off before applying. The color is the most pigmented out of the three so be careful when applying this.
Overall, however, I highly recommend this as a beginner green eyeshadow palette. These are great eyeshadows for the low price.

If you are looking for that neon green look this is the perfect palette to go to. I paid $2.99 for this and couldn't be happier for the price. These greens really make your eyes pop and really makes a bold statement. You do not have to put a lot onto your brush to achieve the look so these shadows will last a long time. All of the wet n wild palettes have super cute names and they match the colors so.

I picked this up on a whim because I liked the bright green colors and thought it's only $2.99. It took me a few months though to actually wear this as I usually wear neutrals and had bad flashbacks from the seventies of green and blue eyeshadows and did not want to revisit that look, so I avoided trying this out. Well, I just bought a pretty bright lime spring green shirt and wanted a look to go with it, so I finally just dug it out and tried it and I am happy to report that not only did my blue eyes look great with the pop of color but that I did not look like I had stepped out of the seventies at all and I actually liked the way this addition of color brightened up my whole face. I used NYX white eyeshadow base beneath this and it really popped. The shadow stayed on all day and was still on until I took it off at almost 2 am! It had faded a little but I was surprised at how good this still looked 14 hours after application! This is a nice little trio and the little pans are stamped with "browbone" "crease" and "eyelid" to give you a guide on how to start. I used the lid color on my entire lid and used the crease color to add some definition and shade to the crease area and then dabbed the light shimmery browbone color right in the center of my eyelid above the pupil of my eye to highlight that area. These shadows apply so smoothy and blend well but stay pigmented. These perform as well as higher end department store shadows and as actually almost as good as my favorite Urban Decay shadows. If I didn't know better I would not believe this is cheapie drugstore makeup. SCORE!

Love these colors, they work well with my eyes and skin tone.They are very soft--applies easy, and very pigmented. The packaging sucks, but whatever--the product is very good! The price is also right--$2.99 @ the drugstore, not too bad!

I bought this on a whim and I'm glad that I did!! I was actually surprised to see these colors at a drugstore, but at the same time, I was relieved that I wouldn't have to drop a ton of $ at Sephora to try colors like these out.
Anyway! My favorite is the bottom shade. It's a bright, neon green. I have blue/green eyes and it actually makes them POP. I haven't used the other two colors much.
As with most Wet 'n Wild packaging, it's flimsy and cheap.

Even though this is one of my least reached for pallets it is my favorite for a bright eye or ifI need a green. The shadows arevery pigmented and silky. Another hit from wet n wild

Thought these colors may be too bright on my very fair skin but gave it a shot since it was so cheap. The brightest green, when applied is actually very wearable and not scary at all. Love this trio

The green I feel for this, can only be obtained by taking my bra off of after a tiring eight hour day.
The colours are amazingly bright, even brighter if you do apply it over a white base. However, you do need a primer or else it will bleed and turn all oily. Also it's not very good if its applied wet, like some eyeshadows just blossom if they're applied wet, yeah this one isn't it.
I sometimes even use the middle green one as an mock-eyeliner with my small angled brush. It really pops out my eyes, and great for Holiday Events.
I would buy it again--if I can find it again.

This is the first super bright eye shadow(s) I've purchased in quite a while. Having *very* fair skin (slightly lighter than MAC NC15), with dark hair and dark eyes, as well as being 30y/o now, not all super bright colors work well for me :(
The first time I tried this I was a little disappointed - I usually like how green eye shadows look on me but I felt all three of these shades used together (on me) were a bit *too* bright overall and kind of washed me out :( So this trio sat for several weeks until I recently saw on a beauty blog some eyeshadow tips for my eye shape, and they were done in bright green. So I whipped this out again but applied a brown cream base first (Maybelline Bad To The Bronze ColorTattoo) and I'm absolutely in love with the look I get with this trio + a darker base! I doesn't *have* to be the Bad To The Bronze color tattoo - Now that I've gotten the hang of it I use it with many other "base colors" -some cream and some powder. (In my experience thus far though, these shades seem to work better with cream bases).
I've also found a way that I like using the trio without a darker base - just using the two bottom shades (the one's labeled "lid" and "crease"), and adding a kohl eyeliner and smudging it to heck and back ;) It creates a kind of messy look and makes them not so insanely bright and scary on me.
I've also experienced very minimal fall out with these three shades. If you apply with a dry applicator or brush, I'd reccomend tapping it first to get any loose e/s off before taking it up to your eye. It's very minimal fallout, but there is a little. No where near as much as I've experienced from other WnW eye shadows though. You can also apply these wet and get zero fallout as well as a more intense look :)
At my local CVS store this trio was $2.99 which is really a steal for how pigmented these shades are. &Most US drugstores (CVS, RiteAid, Walgreens) offer BOGO sales from time to time on WnW products as well, making them even *less* expensive!
The I Dream Of Greenie trio consists of 3 different shades of green. The "browbone"/top shade is the lightest and definately my least favorite. It's rather sheer and not extremely flattering when used as a browbone shade on me :(
The middle "crease" shade is my fave of the three. It's the darkest of the three, but by NO means what I'd call a "dark green" - just the darkest of this paticular trio. But it is the shade that I really *pack* on ontop of my darker base shades.
The bottom is the "lid" shade and also a nice, flattering shade of green. It's a little lighter than the "crease" shade and a little more bold as well.
Overall, since these shades are so intense and bright, it's not a trio that I personally can pull off on a daily basis so I imagine it will last me a *very* long time. Even if it didn't, considering the price and how flattering it is when I do use these, I'd definately repurchase and reccomend for anyone looking to create a brighter eye look :)
