Pigmented, easy to blend, but too soft?
I absolutely LOVE WnW & think they are one of the best drugstore brands out there. They keep improving their products and it's a real pleasure to get MU for under $5 nowadays. I own Comfort Zone, Petal Pusher, & Blue Had Me At Hello. My favorite is BHMAH and my least is Petal Pusher. With all of them you get 8 highly pigmented, shimmer colors. They blend easy and look great when applied wet. I only have 2 gripes with WnW; their shadows and blushes are TOO SOFT & they need more matte colors,( that aren't chalky.) From what I've heard they have listened to the beauty community and we should be seeing more matte! I definitely rec. these to anyone whether you're a beginner or an experienced MUA. Plus, for the price you have to at least try them!
Comparable in Quality to Urban Decay & Kat Von D Eyeshadows
This caught my eye because the color selection is very similar to Kat Von D's True Romance Eyeshadow Palette in Ludwig, which also contains neutrals and wearable greens in matte and shimmer finishes, but costs 8 times more!
The WnW is a great starter palette, because the shades are wearable, the pigmentation is stellar, the texture is soft and silky and not overly powdery, and one of the definer shades is an unusual brown with aqua/green reflective shimmer, which the Kat Von D palette does NOT have and is very similar in shade and sheen to Urban Decay's Lounge eyeshadow single. The WnW Comfort Zone palette is also versatile in that you can choose for a subtle natural daytime look with 2 or 3 of the shades, add a pop of green color for something a little off-beat, or create a dramatic, smokey, night time look.
Cheap and sub-standard packaging design aside, the only thing that keeps this palette from being perfect is that the green eyelid shade does not have great wear time; it does fade into a neutral color after about 3 hours of wear, even with primer. Otherwise, this $5 palette is a gem!
This collection is amazing! The shades are very pigmented and bold. They are silky smooth and so blendable. There are many different looks you can get out of the collection, wether it may be a day look or an evening look it can be accomplished with these shades. It is also good for beginners as well as advanced make up lovers. The back of these palettes have different number sequences so the user can create different looks without really even trying, it's sorta like paint by numbers! I would defently recommend adding this palette to you collection as well as the others.
A good surprise
I got this palette in Petal Pusher. I was nicely surprised at how nice these colours looked on me and how well these colours were to build. I especially liked the purple side of the palette, it made a great coloured eye for me.
The packaging is a bit cheap but it does comes with a clear cover so that you can see all the colours in it while you store it with the rest of your makeup collection.
This is very creamy and pigmented shades. I find that these shades are easy to blend and great for mixing and matching.
I did accidentally drop this palette on my tiled bathroom floor and it did break a couple of the colours. I guess because the colours are so creamy and smooth it is looser so I would be more careful with it.
This palette was a GREAT price, the colours are fun so this is something that I would definately recommend and I think I will also go back and get the other shades as well if I can get my hands on it.
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!
