Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette Review & Look

Hello my makeup lovers,

Today I'll be reviewing one of my favorite everyday palettes, my Wet n' Wild Color Icon Palette in "Comfort Zone". I've been a Wet n' Wild cosmetics lover for so many years. In fact, my first makeup purchase was from Wet n' Wild. Over the past couple of years they have definitely improved the quality of their make up, most especially their eyeshadows. The obstacle I've faced with their new Color Icon collection is actually FINDING it. For some reason, my local drugstores aren't carrying their latest Color Icon additions. Believe you me--- I'd buy every single palette! I have no choice but to order them online (heavy sigh). I managed to get my hands on Comfort Zone, which was sold out for such a long time on Nonpariel boutique but once it was back in stock, I wasted no time and placed an order.

The color pigmentation is amazing! After seeing so many swatches of this palette, I had to have it. I mean for goodness sake, the thing is $5.00! Totally worth the money. I decided to create a look for the purpose of this review so you can see how fabulous it is!

I used this side of the palette:

1. I applied the "browbone" color onto my lid, browbone and inner tear duct.
2. Then I took the "eyelind" color and applied it to the outer half of my lid.
3. I used a fluffy crease brush and applied the "crease" color onto my crease.
4. I used a dense crease brush to apply the "definer" eyeshadow on the outer portion of my lid and crease to create more definition. 
5. I topped it off with Elite Lashes in #8, a winged liner and Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara.


I'm posing with my fierce hinge ring 'cause I'm classy like that.

There are so many looks that can be created with this palette. It's so diverse and I love that! That's usually what I look for in a palette---the ability to mix around colors to create looks for day and night. That's what really makes it worth the buck or in this case, five bucks. Well I'm off to go nom nom nom on my black and white cookies. Shame on me... SHAME SHAME SHAME!

Thanks for reading and I hope it was helpful. Be jealous of my cookies. Be very jealous.

  2. I love some of these palette colors. I just can never get the eye shawdow on right and then it starts getting into my eyes and bothering them. Do you have a tip for keeping it from melting into your eye?

  3. The best way to prevent eyeshadow from running is to apply an eye primer or a cream shadow first and then apply the eyeshadow on top. This will prevent your eyeshadow from melting, creasing and it will also give your eyeshadow more vibrancy.
