Wet N Wild Eye shadow Trios | Review & Swatches

Hi beauties! Today is another round of the Weekly Wednesday blog hop! Click the button below to go to Melissa's Blog :) (or the button in the sidebar)!

I was to get around to reviewing these eye shadows a long time now! I use "I'm Getting Sunburned" almost daily, and you would have seen it featured here, here and plenty of FOTD posts. As you could tell, I am in love the gold in this palette, and kill it every chance that I get.
As for the "Don't Steal My Thunder" trio, there are definitely not enough opportunities for me to wear this, as the colours are quite dramatic. It's a great trio nonetheless.











The pigmentation on both of these palettes are quite outstanding, especially for the price but I'm sure you've already read plenty of rave reviews on these. I'll tell you what I don't like. The Browbone colours. It may just be a suggestion for a beginner, but who really wears shimmery pink (especially such a saturated colour) as a brow highlight? And a Frosty Silver almost the same as the lid colour is a bit redundant. I would have appreciated a matte colour, or a more sheerly pigmented shadow for the brow highlight.

Another peeve I had with these are the amount of fallout on the gold shade. I love it, but it's such a pain to apply without having eyeshadow all under your eye. Same goes for the silver eyelid shade in the DSMT trio.

The Verdict:
Pros:
  • Great Pigmentation
  • Affordable (dependant on where you get it)
  • Versatile
  • Travel-friendly
Cons:
  • Brow bone highlight colours are odd
  • Fallout in shimmery shades
  • All shades contain shimmer
  • Availability in Barbados
The Raw Sugar:
Despite those peeves, I really like the two of them though. The price is good (I actually won these ones), but I'd love to try out others with a few matte shades included as well. Maybe next time I'm in iMart, I may pick up one of the larger palettes.. if it's in stock.

Where you can find it:  iMart Sheraton or Hasting (Barbados), Drugstores (USA)

Disclaimer: I won these products in a give away, however, opinions are my own.
