I have Blue Had Me At Hello and Comfort Zone, and both are amazing. These shadows are so buttery soft and nicely pigmented I almost feel bad I paid so little for them! I wore the left side of Blue Had Me At Hello for Valentine's Day, and I wore the left side of Comfort Zone almost every day this week. For those days when morning time is limited and you want someone else to figure out the color combinations for you, these are excellent. They would also be lovely to travel with.
To get a true sense of the palettes, I've only worn the shadows in the recommended places as illustrated on the back. The left side of Comfort Zone could be a little more harmonious (my gripe being the lid and crease color aren't totally compatible) but the right side is so incredibly gorgeous. It doesn't wear as green-looking on the eye, and the bottom right pan adds such awesome dimension to the look. Blue Had Me At Hello is perfect on each side; such dramatic and awesome looks. I will purchase Petal Pusher the next chance I get so I can enjoy them all. Wet N Wild does it again. <3
Nice but can crumble in pan.
Haven't experimented with the greens in "comfort zone" but I really like the naturals on the left side of the tray. Just as with the trios I've had trouble with the tray crumbling during travel. Obviously this doesn't effect the nice pigmentation but it can be a real mess. Just be gentle with storage and hole traveling. Really good overall!
UD dupes at the drugstore!
Once I noticed these were getting a lot of attention awhile back I had to see what the commotion was about! I love that these 8 pans have a lot of product- 8 wide wells. The shadows are creamy and buttery- so soft and pigmented just a tap will give you plenty of shadow to play with-if you accidentally dig, you'll have kicked up too much. Love how cheap they are, and the color selections. The neutrals on the left are gorgeous, and the duochrome shade looks amaze over a black base- and like Mary Anne M. said, its def. a dupe of UD's Lounge e.s. The right side with greens I have yet to play with, but I plan on creating an olive smokey eye by patting the greens over my Stila Smudge Pot in Black. These are so versatile and feel high end. These and the e.s. trios/singles were really the start of Wet n Wild's rise to popularity. Love their new shadow formulas!
Even if you aren't planning on using these daily, they're still an amazing buy. You get 8 shadows for $4.99 (Price at my cvs) and they're incredibly pigmented for a drugstore eyeshadow. When I first got mine, of course I dug my brush into it, trying to get as much shadow as I could because I didn't expect it to have a lot of color, but whoa, was I wrong. I actually needed to clean off my brush and try again with less shadow xD
They're great to have laying around, and some of the colors included are truly unique! Especially for a drugstore find! These palettes give you everything you need to be neutral, dramatic, smokey, or just playful. Extremely versatile!
