It’s FAKE FRIDAY!!! How awesome….we get like 3 Fridays in a row this week! Now this is the kind of week that I could be excited about every week…don’t you agree? So it’s day 4 of palette reviews with Slay Uniqueness and I think we are both really excited to show you what we’ve got up for grabs tomorrow! We hope you are all as excited as we are. Today I have a bit of a gem up for review! I am reviewing the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette for you all. This palette gets mentioned a lot on social media and on You Tube.
Wet n Wild seems to usually hit it out of the park when it comes to their eye shadows and highlighters. I have such FOMO about the highlighters, but heaven knows I don’t need any more highlighters.
What is this palette about?
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection Comfort Zone brings you an expertly selected palette of 8 complementary shades to help you create the perfect eye. Blend the colours together or use separately for an endless variety of eye looks.
This palette is made up of 8 shades, each side a guide to a look. On the left we have the more natural and neutral side and on the right, a more dramatic mix of shades with olive and green hues. A run down of the shades….left column first and then right column:
- A light champagne browbone shade
- A rose gold eyelid shade
- A bronze-brown crease shade
- A dark chocolate-brown with gold flecks
- A grey-gold browbone shade
- An olive-green shimmer with a gold shift for the eyelid
- A deep dark black brown with a gold shift
- A metallic blue with red undertones (stunning!)
The packaging is nothing special, similar to the NYX palette. It’s black and clear plastic that scratches easily and does not photograph well after being in use for a while!
The net weight of the shadows is 8.5gms, so just over 1gm of product per pan.
Where and how much?
You can pick this up for R109.95 from Clicks and currently they have a beauty festival on so these are on a 3 for 2 promotion.
Look at these swatches! I don’t know why I didn’t swatch the blue shade with the red shift…. because it is one of my favourites.
The formula and my experience
These shadows are super soft, almost like a cream consistency when you swatch them and they are really pigmented. They swatch beautifully and I love how they’ve taken the guess-work out of what goes where for a newbie to makeup. With the guide on each shadow, I really do think it’s a cute touch and something I appreciated when I was just getting into makeup. Also it’s convenient to have a palette that allows you to put together neutral looks as well as more dramatic looks.
My criticism would be that I wish there were matte shades for the crease. I personally need to grab another palette for a transition shade first, before I use this palette. That has been solved though, as Wet n Wild have repackaged and reformulated this palette and added 2 matte transition shades. So in the US this palette has 10 shades. I’m not sure if and when we’ll get them in SA and if the formula is still as good as this one. I think Yolanda will be able to fill us in on this, because she is reviewing one of the newer palettes.
Also there is quite a bit of fallout, especially with the darker shades. So be weary of that or do your eye makeup before your foundation.
These shadows look amazing on the eyes and they perform well. They blend well and with a primer they last a good 8hrs plus. You are not sacrificing quality for the price with this palette.
Would I recommend it?
Yes, yes and yes! This palette is good value for money. You’re getting amazing quality for a fraction of the price compared to higher end brands. When they are on promotion….even better! I believe the ‘walking on eggshells‘ trio also comes highly recommended. Do yourself a favour….and pick this palette up!
