Wet n Wild Color Icon Trios review + swatches

  I picked up several Wet n Wild eye shadow palettes some weeks ago(featured in this post) to try them out. Since I've heard so many awesome reviews about Wet n Wild I've decided to try it as well. I've known the Wet n Wild brand for a long time, but didn't know they were actually making good quality products now, so I knew I had to try that out.  (Swatches taken with natural light, palette pictures taken with a flash).

Wet n Wild Color Icon Trio: I'm Getting Sunburned

  All 3 colors in this trio are super pretty! The brow bone one is a really cute metallic pink/mauve color. The crease one looks brown but is a really dark brown, it's almost black when applied. I could almost say it's iridescent and looks black at one angle and brown when the light hits it. The eyelid color is a super cute and shimmery bronze. All of these colors are super pigmented and not chalky at all. Their crease color has a bit of fall out and the eyelid one has a tiny bit too, but it's really little.

 Amazing trio! I really recommend this for a daily look kinda trio. You can use the brow bone color on your lid and the eye lid one on your crease for a morning look to go to work or something and then maybe add up the crease color later on to go out at night!

  None of these colors are too bold and I think most people would be comfortable wearing them. I also think the colors would work with any eye color. I know they work for brown eyes for sure...duh my eyes are brown!

I Dream of Greenie


 The brow bone color is a really light and soft metallic green. At times it even looks silver when you look at it from certain angle. It can be a bit chalky, it can have some fall out, but not a lot. It's not extremely pigmented, but it's easily built up.

 The crease color is a shimmery green with a bit of blue, it looks turquoise in the swatch, but it's actually a little bit warmer.  This color does have some fall out, it's pigmented, but not a lot, but easily built up too.
   The eyelid color is a pretty lime green with a bit of glitter. This one is a bit sheer, but same as the others - easy to built up. It does also have some fall out and it's a little bit chalky.

  In spite of fall out of chalkiness, I still think this is a great trio. Maybr not so much for a daily look, unless you like bold colors for daily looks, which I actually do, but it might not be "work place friendly".

Silent Treatment

   This brow bone color is a pretty shimmery peach. It's not super pigmented, but can be built up. It's a little chalky and has a bit of fall out, but it's like with cute doggies, it's so cute we forgive it for anything! This one is great not only for highlighting the brow bone, but also to brighten up the inner corner of the eye for a more awake and bright look.

 The crease color is a black or extremely dark brown with glitter. It's chalky, not to pigmented and not too easy to build up. I'm actually not a fan of this color for that reason. I guess it's easier to have a not so pigmented dark color because it would be more forgiving if you make a mistake, and would work better as  a crease color.

 The eyelid color is a gorgeous shimmery taupe, really pigmented for this shade, so it's not hard for the actual color to show. It has a little of fall out and it's not too chalky.
 Same as with I'm Getting Sunburned, this one would work amazingly for a daily palette - use the brow bone and eyelid colors for a soft work safe look and add the crease one for a night out. This trio I think is super friendly with any skin color and would be in most people's comfort zone.

Overall review:

 In spite of the fact that most of these shades have some fall out, I still think they are worth every penny, which is actually not a lot at $2.99. They can be compared to the high end products in how pretty the colors are and how pigmented most of these are. I think this is great if you don't have a lot of money in your budget, you want to save some money or you simply want to try these out. I really recommend picking at least one of these up. I know you'd be happy with what you get. I think the fall out they have is something we all can live with(even Urban Decay eye shadows have fall out...), nothing that just tapping your brush against the palette won't fix. I'm super glad I picked these up and gave Wet n Wild another chance. I'm really surprised with the quality of their products and if you don't believe me, try them out yourself, I think you won't be disappointed.  Oh! I almost forgot, you can pick these up at Walgreens, Rite Aid and even at Walmart.

  Hope you liked this review and tell me which is your favorite Wet n Wild product?
