Used 'Nude Awakening' and for the price it's actually pretty good. I used P Louise eyeshadow base with it. The blends on all the matte colors except for lightest one, are really good. (I ended up using a white from another wet n wild palette since the light beige in this one wasn't that good). The darkest colors really blended SOOOO well 😍😍😍. The light shimmer was excellent on my brow bone, but the golden shimmer color wasn't blending well at all... Overall good palette just some of the colors weren't that great.
I expected the palette to have some glimmering shadows but all of them range from subtle glimmer to a couple I would term glittery, except for the two larger end pans, which are matte. They are beautiful colors, I’m just not sure I’ll get much use out of them as I tend to stay away from glimmer eye shadow now that I have senior eyes. Not a good look. They’re very smooth and velvety, heavily pigmented and most of all, inexpensive. May pass it on to the granddaughter.
I purchased these Wet n Wild eyeshadow colors after seeing it in 2 different utube videos in which both women have a very large following. Both generally gravitate towards the high end beauty products, but once in a while they will pop something on their screen that many of us on a budget can swing! I was lucky enough to find one of these very reasonably priced pallets here and it was a HUGE slam dunk for me! All of the colors are neutrals with 5 being matte and 5 being a shimmer. I am over 43 so wearing a shimmer has been something I have been NOT doing for about the last 5 years for fear its going to look crinkley on my eyelids. Maybe because this is a very fine shimmer and not a chunky shimmer or glitter like some of the Urban Decay ones I still have from years past? I find that ALL of these shades are SUPER wearable and (imo 😏) don't age me. I did prime my lids one time using the Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the purple tube, then lightly dusted with translucent powder before going in with the eyeshadows. The results were pretty good for a Wet n Wild product and even though i had some creasing with my heavy/oily eyelids...it lasted about 6 1/2 until I washed it all off. BUT then...because I could, and had the stuff to do it...I primed my eyelids with MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the color Painterly so it evened out the color of my entire eyelid in flesh tone and let it dry without setting powder. I then applied these Wet n Wild colors to my eyelids. The grip that the Paint Pot gives by using that as your primer is so much better. I was a bit worried with the grip it wouldn't blend, but it did. I didnt have any patchy spots at all. The colors are quite pigmented and picked up on both my Ecco Tools brushes and Ulta store brand brushes just fine. I have not used the black to line or shadow, so I have no feedback on that particular. All the others perform remarkable when using a primer to the extent that you would never guess this was a less than $5 cosmetic item! Definitely recommend this product.
I’ve never used Wet & Wild eyeshadow before and was pleasantly surprised! It has great pigmentation & staying power and “Comfort Zone” is a fantastic color story. I’m so happy with my purchase! Five stars!
One of the colors showed up broke,. Was such a mess the eyeshadow powder was coming out of through the bubble wrap. It was still sealed on all sides, so it left the factory like that. You can also see what a mess the packaging is and this is after I cleaned it up.
The formula is different and color slightly off from previous ones. The darker shimmer shade used to be more pinkish and very smooth, now it's more beigie and chalky. I may order again since it's not too expensive and see if I just got a fluke. I have loved this pallette for quite a while. It's been a staple and I'm sad if it's not good anymore.
