Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette {Review}

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.

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette

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!)
Comfort Zone palette


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.


Wet n Wild comfort zone palette swatches

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!

    AH! I love how you explain these palettes to a T! Like your work is just fantastic! this has been such an awesome idea reviewing these palettes! I loved it, I love loved IT!!!!

  • Nina

    Thank you for mentioning the fallout. I stayed away from this palette because it doesn’t have matt shades. I got the photofocus concealer, liquid eye mega liner and liquid catsuit lipstick .. all 3 performed !

  • Dhanusha Dhoorgalu

    I have always wanted this palette and never got around to getting it. Maybe this clicks beauty fair I will lol. I have used another one of their palettes and it was good quality but lots of fallout. Thanks for the review hehe the highlighters are def a fave and the liquid lipsticks lol but you did see my review I love all of those.

  • Aisha

    Agree! Great palette for the price. The pinky shade is my FAVORITE. One of the best drugstore palettes available in South Africa for sure. They did up the price by R10 or R20 (can’t remember) but it’s still really worth it!

    Btw, that Morphe e27 brush is EVERYTHING. I love mine so much and need to get backups.

  • Vannah

    I have to admit I love the words on the shades, for someone not beauty smart, it helps me figure out where what goes ? awesome review.

  • Bernice Vermaak

    I love their Lippies so I think I would love the Eyeshadow palettes aswell. Ill go have a look when I get to the shops again.

  • donna

    i love this review.. and love the words on the palette… really helps for someone like me lol.
    i have 4 shades in their matte lipsticks… and love the fact that after a few eats and cups of coffee it still stays on. i just dont like their packaging as all the lids crack.
    as for this palette.. i need to get it as the only one i have is the LA girl one you advised me to get lol… that was a while ago… cant’ look face lol

    This is such an amazing palette for newbies! I purchased this last year for R100 at Clicks and it was an amazing buy… I use the neutral side all the time. Although for some reason I’ve never used the right side of the palette ? I’m afraid to try bolder colours out, but now I’m really keen to use it! I agree with you about the transition shade though, when I first started learning about eyeshadow application I always noticed people using matte shades in the crease… so I was a bit confused with this, but it’s not too bad. If I’m not very lazy I just use a transition shade from my Morphe 35O palette and it’s perfect. Really happy to hear about the 10 shade upgrade though! That will be perfect, I’ll probably donate my palette and buy that when it’s released here ?

    • Simone

      Those neutral colours are so pretty! You should just dabble in one of the darker shades at a time…outer corner…but beware the fallout. I can’t wait to see if the ‘upgraded’ palettes come to SA!
