My absolute favorites are the peachy shades. I usually can't wear peach- but these are very flattering. Also, unlike most shadows for highlighting (ie-lilacs, pinks, whites), this looks very natural in the inner corner of my eye and brow bone. I like to wear the peaches with the dark brown as an eyeliner. I'm a PPP-neutral to cool, with redness, dark brown hair and hazel/green eyes.
I actually picked this up for the light pink shades, thinking they could be an every day alternatieve to BE's Celestine and Nude Beach. However, they are a bit too frosty on me, and not something I would wear every day.
The other colors are good, too, but have to be applied with a light hand- more than one stroke looks too obvious on me, but I do like natural looks. They are all long-lasting.
I think anyone could find something they loved with this set, especially ppp cools. If you can't usually wear peach, but want something a bit summery- buy it.

Really cute packaging for a super product. Really long lasting colors with great pigment. The purple shades look great on brown eyes. My super user tips are:
1. Use Urban Decay Primer Potion under it for even longer lasting wear with no creasing
2. Make sure you have good makeup brushes to apply - 3 would be optimal

These shadows, as I've said before, are amazing. The quality is just outstanding for the price. I love this palette...the colors all complement my blue eyes and cool skin tone perfectly! Fantastic job, Wet 'n Wild!

This was $5. There are 8 colors in this palette. All of them are gorgeous but the dark brown alone is worth at least twice the price of admission! The purples and the taupe compliments the brown perfectly. This is definitely not the Wet n' Wild that I knew and avoided in high school. After depotting, I found out that the pots are very shallow. Not that it matters because again, all these colors came at about 1/3 the price of a single MAC shadow. At an age where women have been coaxed into spending almost $30 for one eyeshadow by some cosmetic companies, Wet n' Wild (as well as NYX) is a breath of fresh air. You really don't have to spend much at all for excellent quality. These shadows are richly pigmented and applies very smoothly. The quality definitely beats the wimpy shadows in the $50 Chanel quads and I personally can't tell a difference between this and MAC whose shadows I've used daily for the last four five years. I don't have oily lids though so staying power was never too major a concern for me. Nevertheless, these colors show up incredibly well and the W&W shadows are not as crumply as NYX trios. My only complaint is minor: the package is bulky and a bit tacky looking even if the pull out mirrow is kind of clever. But depotting isn't too bad using the oven and I just plopped these into my Shu Uemura compact. I wish the shadow pots would actually fit better but again, this is aboslutely NOT a reason to prevent me from buying more of this.

As everyone's mentioned, this is an excellent palette. The pigmentation is very good, the shadows are highly blendable, and most have a rich-looking shimmer. I end up putting them on with a wet brush though, because they are very dusty. A lot of shadow ends up falling off my brush onto my cheekbones. Still, I can work around that, and I would definitely buy this again. The only other palette I've seen has too much blue, which doesn't look good on me, otherwise I'd snap it up.

From plum to peach, this neutral palette definitely packs a punch. At $7CDN, you get several shadows for less than half the price of a single MAC shadow - and some MAC shadows don't even come close to the quality of Wet n Wild's trios and palettes! I'm impressed by how far Wet n Wild has come.

Okay so I told my mom to buy this today because of all the good reviews and yes, it lives up to the hype. I was comparing it to my Lancome shadows and it's so much better. It's no MAC, which i think it's the best, but it pretty much beats every other depatment store brand of eyeshadows that i've tried. But you just have to try it. Only 4.99. And if you like this then you have to try the Eye Expressions, there cream shadows and go on like butter.

OMG! How do they do it? There are eight gorgeous shadows here-some pinky,mauvey, peachy highlighters,and some jewel tones that are richly frosted without looking chalky,cheap or sparkly. How come other drugstore brands can not follow W&W's lead? Sure,we don't see Halle Berry and Eva Langoria with W&W splashed across Harper's,but obviously what this company doesn't spend in advertising or packaging is put into a quality product.

I'm so impressed by this eyesahdow palette! It is an absolutley amazing steal for only $4.99! The colors are very shimmery and pigmented, they glide on easily and are very beautiful together. The compact is nice too. Has a huge mirror that easily slides out! I honestly didn't expect such high quality for only $5, but seriously these shadows are better than many high end brands in my honest opinion. I can't wait to try more Wet 'n' Wild eyeshadows!

WooooW! What a great set of shadows, I am so glad I read all the great reviews and went out and finally bought one. I have been eyeing this for weeks and broke down and bought one, and i'm sure glad I tried them. These are a beautiful set of mauves, and neutrals, the quality is amazing. I put these eyeshadows on in the morning and in the evening they are still just as nice as when I put them on. No creasing and I have oily lids. Very impressed, i'm going to buyt the other ones. Cheap too I got mine for $6.95 CAN. W&W has certainly improved their products from years ago.

This palette is the BOMB! I love all the colors in it- every single one. Staying power on the shadows seems just as good as just about everything else I use. All the shadows work well together too. Im so glad I got this. One of my friends that saw it in my room commented on how much she liked all the colors in it.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Quite possibly the best $5 I've ever spent! Seriously, these are amazing. 6 great shades you can create tons of combinations/ looks with. The quality reminds me of Stila shadows--so soft and silky and pigmented and shimmery. The only drawback at all to this product is that it's difficult to find! If you can find 'em, get 'em!!!!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
These palettes are wonderful. Seriously, if you are just starting out on wearing makeup, just get all 3 of the palettes people are mentioning in these reviews. Play with the colors to your hearts content, as you will have a range of cool and warm, neutral and bolder colors to see what looks best on you. If they had these palettes available when I was a teen, I may not have ever even bothered to try other more expensive brands. These are the biggest bargain in the makeup biz, and the quality is excellent. It sounds too good to be true but it's not.

I bought all three of the new Eye Expressions palettes, and Paradise Cove is my favorite! It has coordinating shades of purple, taupe, peach, maroon, and brown. The quality of these shadows is amazing, especially for the low price ($4.19 at Meijer or $4.99 at Walgreens). I was hesitant to try these, since I've never really bought Wet and Wild products, but was very pleasantly surprised by them. The finish is satiny and smooth (many shades have shimmer) and they last all day, when used with a base. Highly recommended!

This is a lovely L/E palette for eyes. It contains 8 shadows, 4 on the side and 4 in the middle. In clockwise order, starting from the top left the colors are: pale pinked champagne, light peach, medium peach and pale lilac. Going down the center the colors are: medium violet, plum, deep taupe and dark cool brown. The eye shadows are lightly frosted. With those colors and the amazing wearability and blendability of these shadows, one could easily creat any look, from natural to dramatic and smokey with this single palette. The colors go on smooth and true and I've had very little problems with creasing. A great buy and only about $5!!!

I got this recently and almost didn't get it because I have the LE Winter palettes and I didn't love them. I love this one though. It's full of cool neutral colors and so far the browns in this are the only browns I've been able to wear without looking inflamed. Cool browns, shimmery peaches, greys and purple/green, this is extremely versatile for every day and for smokey eyes for nighttime. I have to say, the texture is wonderful in this palette, as the shadows are soft and well pigmented. I can't believe what a great palette this is and for only $5! NC37/MMM/oily

I agree with all the good things the other reviewers have said. Even though I don't normally wear shimmery shadows, I just couldn't resist eight shadows for $4.99. I also bought this because the shadows are wet/dry, and I was hoping the darkest color would make a great eyeliner, and it does. I wet my liner brush with eye drops, stroke it over the shadow, and the shadow works perfectly as a liner because it goes on so smoothly and easily. The shadows are very smooth, soft and easy to work with. I just wish WnW would bring out sets like this in mattes.

WOW!!! Where do I start! I feel like all i do lately is review things i love, but I can't help it...All i have been seeing on here lately is rave, rave, rave about this palette (and the other new ones)....so of course, being the loyal, trusting MUA'er that i am, I bought into the hype and started the search. 3 Walgreens later, JACKPOT! I found it, got it, came home, tried it on and was SHOCKED. What a stunning combo of colors. There are colors to line with, for the crease, to highlight, and everything in between! 8 colors for $4.99. The quality and color pay off is great and over all, you just can't go wrong. I loved this and the other 2 palettes (Sand Castle and Fantasy Island) that I went right back out and got dupes of them all! Yes, a bit nuts, but I figure I can keep the dupes at my SO's and not have to haul tons of makeup back and forth all the time, just my brushes. Oh, and the cutest part, there is a little pull out mirror at the bottom! So cute!
IF you can find these...get them...worth every penny, and they cost, pennies!!! Huge thumbs up...WnW...please keep them around!!!!

I was really excited to see this because I loved the Christmas versions they put out a couple of months ago. This one is also a neutral palette that any complexion can use. The colors are shimmery, ranging from champagne, tan, and peach to deep taupe, chocolate and bark. There are 8 colors in all, and it was $3.99 after the display coupon at Walgreen's. Oh, also there's a handy mirror that slides out. I'm a huge fan of WNW eye shadows. They are creamy and rich and long-lasting, especially with UDPP.
