Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection
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 picked up this palette because I loved the teal definer shade. The left side is full of neutrals. The browbone is a soft peach. The eyelid is a satin copper. The crease is a satin brown. The definer is a rich shimmer plum. The right side is variety of shades. The browbone is a satin cream/beige. The eyelid is a rich satin green. The crease is black with gold shimmer. The definer is a duo pearl shade of teal and purple.
The colors are fun and bright, from a soft satin pink to a light shimmering indigo. The left side has the least shimmer for a fun and flirty day style. The browbone white has a touch of iridescent pink. The light pink eyelid shade shows reflections of gold in the light. The crease color is a rich satin plum, The definer is a light shimmering indigo. The right side is packed with shimmer for a bold night look. The pink browbone shade has a super rich glowing pigmentation. The eyelid is a soft berry with shimmers of gold. The Crease color is deceptive in the pan. It is a dark brown/black that is packed with purple shimmer. The definer is a soft charcoal with shimmers of silver that sometimes appear blue.
I purchased this a couple of years ago. I love this palette since i like to do neutral looks. I love how pigmented the shadows are and how easy they are to work with. Also its veryyy affordable. wnw eyeshadows are my favorite drugstore eyeshadows and i recommend this palette.
