Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection

Two weeks ago, I received my package from Luxola.com. If you haven’t heard of it yet, Luxola.com is South East Asia’s largest online Beauty e-tailer based out of Singapore. They also ship to Australia and New Zealand. Last time I visited their online store, they are having free shipping for order Php 1,300 and above. The best thing about their shipping, the items will be delivered directly on your address! I just hate it when I have to get the items on my Postal Office. Believe me, been there done that. Our postal office taxes the products so crazily! 

Anyway, I received 5 items: all makeups are from Wet and Wild and 1 skincare from Philosophy. Wet n Wild is one of my favorite drugstore brands to date. They are very affordable and yet with very, very great quality comparable to high-end brands. 


WET N WILD COLOR ICON EYESHADOW COLLECTION


• PACKAGING •


If you have been reading blogs or watching youtube, you probably have heard of this many times. Wet n Wild is much known for their amazing eyeshadow palettes and for cheap-packaging. LOL. 

The packaging of this palette is quite flimsy, and you have to be extra careful not to let it fall out of your hands.

I like that the shade is written at the front top of the packaging, as a blogger, I really appreciate those little details.
They included a brush, which I will probably not use. The packaging doesn't have mirror, by the way.



• SHADE •


Comfort Zone has 8 eyeshadows, two for each kind. It has a "label" on where you could use the eyeshadows, ex. eyelid, crease. It is very helpful for beginners especially if you aren't really good with combining shades. 

Column 1

The first highlight color is said to be a dupe for Mac’s Rice. It is a really beautiful shimmery shade. I like applying this on the inner corners and browbone! It makes a huge difference in the entire eye look.

The eyelid color is a rosy copper shade. I thought it was similar to rosy shade of my Sleek divine palette but they are not, not even close! That one is really pink rose, this one appears more copper-y.

The Crease is a a medium golden brown. My favorite shade in the palette. I find this kind of shade very flexible and wearable in any occasions.

The Definer is a really dark copper shimmered brown.  It’s a great definer, especially if you find dark shadows too dark.


Column 2

The next highlight color is a gray-frosted shade. It’s a bit less intense as compared to the other highlight color. 

Eyelid shade is a spring-green shade. 

The crease is a charcoal brown with golden shimmers. I usually use this as definer than as crease shadow.

The Definer is definitely one of the unique shades that make this palette really worth it. 
They say it’s a dupe for Mac Club, but this one is more pigmented. It’s a duochrome shadows that is really beautiful! I decided to make an eye makeup using this so you can appreciate the shade even more.
In this eye makeup, I only used the Duochrome definer on my lids then applied the left definer lightly on my crease to create this fun-shimmery eye makeup look. 
To complete the eye makeup, I added purple eyeliner on my waterline. What do you think of this look? Great clubbing makeup, db?

• OVERALL •


The eyeshadows are soft and very pigmented. I’m not really sure why they called this “Comfort zone” palette because in general, the palette contains playful shades which are perfect for special occasions, night parties and clubbing! Everything in this palette has shimmers, none of it is matte, even the definer has shimmers -- which is another downfall for this palette. They should’ve at least included a matte brown in this palette.

Nonetheless, the duochrome makes this palette! It’s a gorgeous color, you can definitely use it on its own. I like it as an eyelid shade than a definer. 

This palette is really great considering that you can buy this for only Php 486 at Luxola! That’s really a good deal because you get 8 pigmented shades.
