Cheap Travel Buys- Wet n Wild Color Icon Eye Shadow Collection Review

I’m still on vacation, I’m loving it, and now I’m blogging it.

So I went shopping today with my dear Mother and we went into a pharmacy and we were looking around the makeup section and then she offered to buy me the Wet n Wild Eye Shadow palettes. What did I do? I said “Yay Mummy! Thank you.” That’s the end of the story.


I’ve heard many good things about the eye shadows from WnW, but Korea, where I currently reside, doesn’t have this brand in the market. So when I saw the sign from outside the pharmacy I was pretty excited to see this brand again. When I was in middle school in the States I used to love wearing this metallic silver and gold nail polish from WnW. Anyway I didn’t really expect much of the product because I knew it was a cheap drugstore brand. The palettes were fairly cheap, about 16,000IDR/14,000KRW each. But you know what? In the US of A it’s about $5.00 *le sigh*. Why does everything have to be so expensive outside of the US? Wahhhhhh. Moving on…



Now let me tell you about the first swatch. I was seriously blow away by the pigmentation of the colors in these basic plastic cases. Each shade feels very silky and the color pay off is amazing for what you pay for. The two color collections I got were comfort zone and petal pusher. The comfort zone palette contains warm neutral and green shades and the petal pusher palette is a mix of lilac, purples, violet colors. Each palette has 8 shades, 2 different brow bone, eyelid, crease, and definer shades. The texture is a mix of shimmer, pearl, and duo chrome. You can mix and match the colors or go straight down the line. You can also adjust the intensity of your look by just using one shade or all four shades in a line. The possibilities are endless. Ido prefer the comfort zone palette more because of the collection of colors but I think the colors are more concentrated in this one. For me this one is more wearable than the purple. Also the duo chrome definer shade on the green side is amazing!batch_IMG_9833batch_IMG_9829

I do find that the dark black shades in both palettes cover up the shimmer when applied, especially with a brush so I think it’s best after you apply it with a brush then use your finger or a sponge eye shadow applicator and pat over it. You have to be a bit generous with the very light shades as well. The left side definer shade on the petal pusher palette is very creamy so use you fingers!

Final comment is that I think these eye shadows are really nice to have especially if you’re on a budget and you want some versatility in your makeup looks. Also for those who are fairly new to applying eye shadows the imprint of what shadow to use where is helpful and once you have mastered them you can go be as creative as you like. Also just a side note, these are made in China but I’ve found out that they don’t sell their products there so it’s cruelty free.
