I am a whore for cheap d/s makeup. And this one is my pimp!
This trio is easy to apply, blends well and works with just about anything I am wearing from office to casual. I prime with a cover up to even skin tone, then use UDPP and finally apply e/s. I do use the pink highlighter although I don't get a lot of color but it makes it easy to blend the eyelid shade. I use the crease color as a liner on top or top and bottom.
I travel for my job and this is an easy to pack product that is quick and easy to apply. The only downside is that I had to work to find this trio and if it breaks in baggage handling I will be crushed to lose such a trustworthy friend.

OMG! I'm totally in love with this trio. Saw it on display. I never buy drugstore shadows esp. palettes, but wet & wild sucked me into theirs cause the price. Couldn't resist that. Didn't really intended to buy it, but it was marked as new. and i'm very a sucker for 'new' stuff. plus, the price was incredible cheap. 1.99. Mann, i just had to get it, but none of the trio color impress me, but still, for 1.99, made myself buying 2. It was hard making a decision cause i really didn't want no more neutrals color. But i picked it up anyways along with the other one that have a gold e/s. The eyelid and crease have a purple-ish grey undertone/tint to it, but don't notice much when wored on. E/s is super duper pigmented. I lovee. . . Wear it almost everyday. Thinking i'm going to go back and get me a back up.

These colors=love! Shadows are buttery soft and smooth, and the effect it gives your eyes is just amazing. This is a nice step up from the Walking on Eggshells trio, but not too flashy or dramatic.

Highly satisfied with this product as I would expect to be since I have the other color Icons. This trio is great for neutral because you can how much you want it to stand out and if you want to tone it done very easy. It is a quad that you can rearrange so that you are not exactly putting the crease color with what is suggested and it will still turn out very well. I would say that these colors and this quad is a good pick.

This is such a great product. Let's all give Wet N Wild a high five and big ole hug. This is an excellent trio. The colors work very well together. They are all SUPER pigmented. The taupe color is super pretty, very comparable to MAC eyeshadow. I used the trio today for a look, I followed the instructions, except I did choose another browbone color that was matte. The pinky color they have for the browbone is in my inner color. This palette is very work appropriate or would look great for a date night. The crease color is very pigmented so be careful when applying that to make sure you get it blended properly. This is such a great buy. It only cost $1.49, on sale, at Walgreens. Ladies... get this palette, its awesome!

Is there a meeting I can go to? I have become addicted to WnW eyeshadows and I am afraid I am going to move on to more products in their line... lipsticks maybe? I had to get my retail fix after a stressful day at work yesterday so I stopped at my local Walgreens to see if the 2010 Holiday Palettes were still available. While snapping up the last Snow Sprite palette, I found the new 2011 products display. I just bought the Walking On Eggshells trio the day before, but I saw Silent Treatment and knew I had to have it. Normally I am pretty nonconformist and don't follow instructions, i.e., crease, brow bone colors, etc., but this morning I applied the colors in this trio as instructed. They look beautiful with my greyish blue eyes. I used the foam applicator that came with the set for the brow and lid colors but used a small eyeshadow brush from the Mark line for the crease. This crease color is extremely pigmented and needs to be used very lightly but the effect is amazing. I am going to skip my usual black eyeliner because my eyes look so beautiful with the shadow alone. I did lightly finish my eyebrows with a brown Glimmerstick because eyebrows should never be ignored. All I needed to finish my look was some Anew powder and Mark Glow Baby Glow lipgloss in Player. For a day around the house, I look like I should be going to an event! Wet 'n' Wild--I am in love with your eyeshadows.

This is hands down the best WnW trio I own (and I own them all). Walking on Eggshells who? The purpley/gray color at the bottom is worth the $2 alone. It is an amazing color that makes my brown eyes pop (NW20) and does not bring attention to my dark under eye circles. This is honestly my favorite new eye shadow of the 10 I have bought in the last two months (and the 10 were all MAC). The highlight color looks like it would be "off", but it goes on silky smooth and blends into my brow area beautifully. The crease color is ridiculously dark and too much for my novice hands. But an experienced artist could work with it.

I found this in a display at CVS, and there was more of this palette in it than the one at Walgreens.
I thought the eyelid taupe shade would be more like MAC Shale (from seeing videos and pics), but it's a little more taupe than the gray/mauve/taupe of Shale. It's still quite good, and the middle crease shade is almost a dupe for NARS Mekong (shade only, not texture). Mekong is a dark espresso brown with this shimmer under the base in a bronze copper tone. I took a pic without primer on the top, and with primer below it. The browbone shade is a shimmery soft peach. It shows up, and I have light skin. Some people are used to very matte pigmented highlight shades, but this is a highlight as well. It's a good price at $2.99, but I won't buy it again because I have a lot more makeup that needs to be used up. I wish the highlight were more matte, the crease shade were softer but just as pigmented, and the eyelid shade more purple-taupe. Update: I had this palette for well over a year before I picked it up again and now I love it as an every day palette. It's super cheap and good quality. I think it speaks for itself now that more people have used it.

This is by far the best trio that WnW has ever made and it is fabulous!! It consists of a peachy highlight color, a dark brown crease color and a gorgeous light taupe shade that has a lavender, pinkish quality. These colors are extremely wearable and pigmented, esp the crease shade. I barely touch it with my brush and have more than enough. I can't gush enough about this drugstore steal and if you see it, pick it up!! You won't be sorry.

Sorry to bring down the reviews on this, but I'm sure it'll get enough positive ones to make up for it. :) Yes, the taupe in this is drool-worthy. It actually doesn't look taupe on me, though - it looks like a soft rose color. But for $3 go buy one! The reason I didn't give this 5 lippies, though, is for the other colors: the highlight color actually doesn't show up on me. And I'm *really* fair, guys, really. I was very, very surprised. And I have the opposite problem with the crease color - it's ridiculously pigmented, making it an odd inclusion with the rest of the trio. So overall, it was a miss in summary. But for $3, this is genuinely great quality and I've tried a ton of eyeshadow in life! If you need something to throw in a travel bag, I really would recommend this one. Try it today!

OMGOSH!!!!!!!! is the lid color in this trio not to die for? I'm just so in love with. so happy I got this (and 2 others) on sale at rite aid for $1.99! this so far is my favorite. The crease is a little dark and VERY pigmented so I used a little bit of the brow color to blend it out and it looks awesome! I am really thinking of going back to get this one in a backup before they go to regular price. you really can not beat it. the quality and pigmentation is unbelievable.

I have really enjoyed the Color Icon shadows since WnW introduced them last year. This reinvention of formula is even better. Silent Treatment is an elegant and wearable trio w/one of the prettiest taupes I've ever seen. Best bang for the buck at the drugstore, imo.

I bought this trio earlier this week at Rite Aid for $1.99. The colors are wonderful- pretty, pigmented, and easy to blend. My only complaint is that its a bit dark when used as directed. I tried a daytime look but ended up with a deep smoky eye. I would recommend using the lightest color as a lit color, taupe in the crease, and crease color as an outer v color or maybr a liner.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Absolutely beautiful colors in this trio! The taupe-y color is my favorite. It goes great with the other colors, but if you are in a rush (as I ALWAYS am), throw it over your whole lid and VOILA! Awesome quality for $2.99! I would definitely repurchase this gem :)

This is a lovely new trio from Wet n Wild's 2011 collection. Each shadow in the trio is marked with where on the lid the shade goes. Of course shaking it up from the typical is half the fun. This is a great neutral trio but beware as other reviewers have stated the crease color is very dark. Here is how I use this trio on a daily basis for a basic neutral daytime eye. I use a light coat of the shimmery taupe on the lid. I use the browbone color, a pale pink, and put it on the browbone blending it down into the lid color. I just tap my crease brush into the crease color (a dark color maybe a charcoal with specks of bronze?), brush it off on my wrist and use the remaining shadow to smoke out the crease very gently. I then use eyeshadow transformer to wet line my eyes with the crease color (you can also use visine, saline solution or water). I line the top and half the bottom. This makes a great neutral eye with impact but not too dark for daytime wear. It would be easy to take this to a night look by adding more crease color. The shadow qualities are as good as my Stila and UD ones and better than my Clinique. I am definitely going to get a backup of this trio the next time they are half price! The trio comes with two brushes that would work in a pinch but I use my own with better results.

This is the best bang for your buck you can find - and I would dare say these are just as good a quality as MAC or Urban Decay shadows. Beautiful color payoff and easy to blend, I adore the lid color as everyone has mentioned, a lovely neutral shimmery silver purple on my lids - I am considering purchasing backups of this for that shade alone as it is just stunning and could work with many of the shades in my collection. The crease color is *very* pigmented and comes out almost black - it's a little more difficult to blend so apply with care. The browbone shade is a lovely sheer pink flesh toned shadow - a perfect highlight for me.

I walked past the display in the grocery store and the taupe shadow really stood out. The other palletes in the collection featured brighter shades..not my style!. These are absolutely amazing colors that have great color payoff (Note: I use primer) and all at a dirt cheap price. Whether you're a snob or a beauty bargain hunter, you'd be a fool not to purchase this or any other as I'm assuming the quality is the same.
These shadows perform better than my high end ones. I feel like such a fool for spending so much money on makeup. I'm going to buy a few more of these so I have a stock.

These trios are really lovely, esp. Silent Treatment. I can see the allure because of the cheap price and the wearable colors. These eyeshadows are also much more creamy than the Greed palette I own, I find. Unfortunately, for me these were too good to be true - I'm extremely allergic to them :( My eyes and eyelids were itchy and irritated after using Silent Treatment, and the itching lasted long after I took the shadows off. I wasn't really surprised considering I'm allergic to most WnW makeup (I don't seem to have the same reaction to the Greed palette, not sure why), but I was very disappointed considering the gorgeous colors and quality of the formula. I exchanged this trio and Spoiled Brat (also beautiful) the next day. Just wanted to warn anyone with sensitive skin that these eye shadows may be irritating.

Add me to the list of MUAers in love with these eyeshadows. I didn't use the colors as recommended: I used the pink shadow as my lid rather than my brow; the mauvey-taupey shadow as my crease; and the dark sparkly brown for my outer V -- and the effect was amazing! I looked somehow dramatic yet natural. The colors themselves are subtle, but b/c they are cool-toned, they were dramatic against my yellow-toned skin yet not overly so. I used it on top of my regular e/s primer, and it lasted all day. As previous reviewers have stated, the pink shadow is about average; the taupey one is completely gorgeous; and the dark brown is VERY pigmented. I only needed to touch my MAC 217 brush once lightly, and it deposited a very nice amount of dark dramatic shadow in my outer V. I had to run out today and buy a backup just in case this went out of stock!

I can only add to the rave reviews of this trio. I read that WnW had some new products out, and as soon as I saw the swatches of this one I knew I needed it.
I really think this whole trio is worth the price just for the lovely taupe shade labeled "eyelid," it's gorgeous. I like using it in an everyday look as a wash across the lid, you barely need any shadow on the brush to get it to show up. It's shimmery but not OTT and it's still neutral. I cannot get enough of this color, omg it's so wonderful.
The highlight doesn't work as well for me, it's a nice color with good pigment but just not for my skintone. I like more champagne-y highlights. I'm sure I'll find a use for it somehow, I'm still playing with it.
The crease shade is also wonderful, but I can't master actually using it as a crease shade because, like another reviewer said, it's too pigmented! I love using it as a liner, though, and I use it for tightlining sometimes. Again, it's shimmery but not OTT.
Just when I thought WnW couldn't put out anything more awesome than the holiday palettes, they put their 2011 collection out. There's some 8-pan palettes (?!) on the way as well that I can't wait for. I adore this trio and am considering going back for some of the other ones.
