I used to be a makeup snob, but honestly I love this cheapie shadow. Nouveau Cheap had talked about these in her blog and for a couple of dollars I just had to give one a try. Since I discovered these trios from Wet n Wild 7 or 8 months ago, I am sold on drugstore products and I went back and bought the whole collection of trios. The package is sealed like crazy though and I had to remove/break 3 seals/stickers to get this open. It's nice that these are stamped with "browbone" "crease" and "eyelid" as a baseline idea on how to use this trio. These all have a subtle shimmer to them but they aren't glittery or sparkly at all and are perfect colors for an everyday look. The shadow is easy to get out and not baked or pressed so hard that I can't get it with a brush. I don't use the tools included so I can't say how well they work, but my E.L.F. brushes work great for application. This goes on well pigmented and very smooth with no fallout if you don't overload your brush, like i tend to do as it comes up so easily. These blend well and are easy to work with and feel smooth and silky not drying at all. This is a really soft product and goes on so well it's hard to believe it's a bargain shadow and not a department store one. It does tend to fade even with primer, but that's after a full day's wear, and even my Urban Decay fades out so it's comparable in quality too. I reach for these as often as if not more than my Urban Decay naked palettes. I can do a natural eye with this or even a smoky eye. The darkest color works great as a liner too. I really love this trio and it changed my mind on how I view inexpensive drugstore makeup. Oh yes, I went back and bought them all!

Literally my fave eyeshadow ever!!!! It's neutral and it just looks beautiful on. Surprisingly good quality and pigmentation for the cost. Love!

This is heavenly. I was skeptical since I've never purchased too many Wet 'n' Wild products, but a friend told me they were actually great quality - and boy she wasn't lying! Out of every single eyeshadow I own, these blow all of the others out of the water. The texture is divine; a soft, rich, buttery and smooth powder. The brushes kinda suck as does the packaging, but you really can't go wrong with this price and quality. These are very pretty colors, but for me they are a bit too frosty. I usually go for shimmery nudes/beige/taupe all over my lid. I found that the white and pink were too shimmery for my taste. I also have tan skin so I feel that these two stick out like a sore thumb on my lids. However, if I mix the white and the brown together and lightly dab it on my lids, it looks nice and toned down in comparison to all 3 shades. The colors/frost may not be for me, but the quality and price is amazing. I can't wait til they come out with more colors!

I'm a huge fan of neutral eyeshadow color (browns,taupe,champagne,soft pink) so when I heard so much good thing about this palette I made a special trip to Walgreens just to purchase this item. I have hooded eyes so when I applied the eyeshadow according to the instruction on the eyeshadows it turned me into an 80s disco ball! It's soooo shimmery! I expect the brow bone and eyelid colors to be somewhat shimmery but not expecting the brown to be overly shimmery and turns lighter when it transfer to your crease. It emphasize my hooded eyes even more. Now I use the pink and the ivory colors in my inner corner but I never seem to be reaching for the browns,so I will not repurchase this palette.

This trio is so gorgeous! I love the colors. All 3 colors have a pearly sheen to them. I went to Walgreens looking for a cheap eyeshadow palette that had natural colors I could wear as an everyday thing. I stumbled across this palette and couldn't believe that I had found the one! And for less than $3!!! I didn't imagine the colors would be so pigmented and beautiful! They kind of remind me of colors you would find in the Urban Decay Naked palette or Too Faced palette. Always prime your lids before applying eyeshadow. It will makes the colors more pigmented, help them stay on and prevent creasing. I use ELF's mineral eyeshadow primer for $1 at Target. I also don't use the brush and sponge that comes with the eyeshadows. I like to use ELF's essential or studio line eyeshadow brushes. The essential ones are only $1 and the studio ones are $3. Overall I'm so in love with this palette and I think everyone should get it! I think I'm going to stock up on a few. Well done Wet N Wild!

Wow. I picked this up at CVS because I was looking for another neutral palette, but inexpensive as well. Once I got home and tried it, I could not believe the results. All three shades are stunning and very complimentary to my green eyes. I especially loved the browbone shade as a highlighter. It really makes my browbones pop and has just the right amount of sparkle - not too much and not too little. The textures are buttery soft and they last forever, even without eyelid primer. No fallout and no flaking under my eyes. My only complaint is the packaging. Yes, it is a little cheap, which is fine because I can always buy a new one for under $5 if this breaks, but I have a heck of a time opening it. I have long nails and the pinch to open it is so tight that I'm afraid of breaking a nail. I would definitely recommend this palette for an everyday look, or even layering it for a night look. Now I have to run out and buy Silent Treatment and Sweet as Candy!

I reach for this one a lot. Nice and neutral, goes with all kinds of different outfits. Yes, there is a lot of fallout but what I do is, I apply my foundation with a damp beautyblenderish dupe sponge, apply primer, apply this eyeshadow, and then use my damp sponge to cleanup the fallout. Then I powder everything to set. Easy peasy.

It is a great Pallet But there's too much fallout, and I would never recommend this to anyone with oily eyelids, even when using a primer i find that it still slides right off....if you find the right primer it should be fine considering the color payoff.

Walking on Eggshells, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways....


Pros:
Beautiful colors
Pigmentation
Longevity
Blendability
Price

Cons:
Slight fallout


The colors are all so useful and gorgeous. They're not at all glittery, but all have a shimmer to them. The browbone color is a light off-white (eggshell lol), the lid color is a lovely, unique peach, and the crease is a coppery brown that isn't as dark as it looks in the pan. But it's really the price to quality ratio on this product is what's most amazing about it. These are UD quality shadows for only about $3!

Wet'n'Wild does not play w/ their eyeshadows! The hype is real people. I paid $3 at Walgreens and after trying it, I went and bought Sweet As Candy and Silent Treatment. I love them all. This would be my everyday neutral trio so definitely the one I use the most. They are pigmented and long lasting! I use E.L.F. $1 eyelid primer underneath. And to anyone who doesn't trust this brand, these did not break me out or irritate my skin. WnW is really stepping up their game b/c I love their Megalast polish, Coverall foundation, blushes, and Megalast lipstick...and now I'm adding these eyeshadows to the list of must haves! If I had to mention one gripe, I wish they got rid of the crappy brushes that come w/ it and used stronger sleeker packaging. Regardless, these are my HG eyeshadows.
