Nutty is a staple for me. If I run out I repurchase. You cannot beat the price and the color is absolutely beautiful! Looking at it through the plastic packaging it kind of looks like a typical cool toned brownish gray BUT once applied it's a gorgeous warm brown with a tiny hint of gray with a satiny, slight glimmer finish. Nutty is a true taupe. Not brown, not gray, TAUPE. If you don't like taupe then you won't like Nutty. I love the satiny finish and it blends like a dream. It kind of reminds me of a Mac shade I used to have, I think it was called Satin Taupe.

Sometimes I use it alone if I'm in a hurry and it always looks great. It has a huge following... as do Brulee and Sugar. If I could only have 3 Wet n Wild Colors those would be my 3 choices and I re-purchase about every 3 months.

Wet n Wild changed with their new formula change for 12/2017. Brulee and Nutty are not exactly the same as they were in the past. If you love those 2, go stock up now. I just bought 10 of each because the new ones are not out in the stores yet, only on the website and the new Brulee looks more peachy and the Nutty appears to have more brown.

Now here is what I hate and this is for all Wet n Willd single pan shadows. the packaging. All of those little stickers all over the place that you have to remove before you can open it. So annoying. I posted a pic above to show the stickers. Hopefully they listened and changed that too.

Like other reviewers, I think the quality of this is great but the colour is totally different from what I was expecting. I'm NC20 and this is straight grey on me, no matter how much I layer it over a primer.

I'm used to the lighter WnW eyeshadows giving me a very clean soft look while still being multidimensional. Like I can use two shades from Walking on Eggshells and jam my crease brush into my eye and swirl it a couple times and somehow end up with a perfectly blended look that appears to use four colours. Unfortunately the grey in this shade just makes my eyes look dirty, whether I use it as a crease or an all over lid colour. It detracts from my whole look and makes it look like I haven't had enough sleep. Or soap.

I think I'll keep it around as a blending shade for a halo eye but I'm probably wasting my time since WnW shadows are already great for doing unintentional halo eyes with no effort.

This is one of my favorite single eyeshadows. I mean if I want to just wear one shadow this is it. It's pigmented and it's a very buttery. I never get fall out and sometimes I pack it on kinda heavy. It blends beautifully and it doesn't really crease or fades. When WnW is on sale I always pick up this and Brûlé

In the pan this is a silver taupe. On my NC 25-30 skin tone, Asian, yellow undertones, in dim lights (i.e., evening indoor incandescent) this looks significantly warmer. If you have ever done craft projects with Rub n Buff, this looks like the color European Gold which is warmer and pinker. In other dim light, it can look almost golden bronze. I can only surmise that the yellow of my skin and the lighting warm it up, even when I apply a thicker coat. Unlike some fair complexioned reviewers below, I don't get a copper tone.

Color payoff is excellent. There is some dusting but not much fallout. It's only becAuse my skin tone is darker, the cool gray brown doesn't show as much. not due to lack of pigment. Obviously when this color is swatched on a white background it's true to the pan color. Because of my oily lids, I use WnW eye shadow primer underneath.

I love it. The only issue I have with the packaging is one could chip a nail trying to detach the safety stickers. The WnW palette Comfort zone has a shade that is a cousin of this. In the pan the two shades look identical. When swatched side by side on my hand, the Comfort zone shade is a few degrees lighter and crosses into a cooler pale gold territory. Although I am a neutrals shadow person, CZ is very wearable.

The single and the smaller palette Comfort zone seem more highly pigmented than Au Natural Bare Awakenings, but that may be due to the color selections. I do love Au Natural whihc is meant to be WnW's entry in a Nude palette. I am a matte neutral lover, but WnW is broadening my horizons.

This is a great neutral shade that is very pigmented and blends out very well. The only thing I don't like about it is the packaging

This is a very pigmented taupe brown shadow. its only one buck and it has pigmentation like high end shadows. very essential if you are a wet n wild fan. will definitely buy again but I doubt not anytime soon because all you need is a little bit so I think this shadow lasts a long time

Love love love this . I had a lot of doubts when I read the reviews here, because in all the pics I see they seem very dark and unusable for office wear . But it is lovely ! A copperish brown without the reds and it applies so smoothly and is Super pigmented . Very easy to use and the color is very special, good for day time looks and it blends nicely with purple . The soft texture makes it easy to blend with other Colours .

This is one of my favorite eye shadows!!! It's the perfect everyday eye shadow. My favorite way to use it is to take my finger and apply it all over the lid; then take a small crease brush and more of the eye shadow and buff it up into the crease. It also add a great small bit of definition on the bottom lash line. It can also be a great Smokey eye if you take over a dark brown/taupe cream base then smudge Nutty all over. I will definitely repurchase this eye shadow after it's all gone. The packaging is kind of cheap look but it's very sturdy and if it bothered me that much I would just depot it and put it in a z palette. But for $0.99 you can't beat it!

I bought this single because I think Wet n Wild makes the best eyeshadows in the drugstore and the color is beautiful. It is not chalky or powdery, there is no kickback. The eyeshadow is great for a one-eyeshadow look same as with other eyeshadows. It is not glittery and gives your eyes a nice sheen, lasts all day without creasing. I have Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on bronze and was hesitating about purchasing Nutty because they look so similar in swatches. In fact, they are really different. Maybelline On and on bronze is much more metallic and bronzey, Nutty has warmer undertone and isn't so intense on the lid (if applied dry). Nutty will definitely become one of my go-to eyeshadows, I recommend it!
