Wet N Wild Color Icon Week! Part 1: Trios I’d Wear to Work

Hello Beauties!

The Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadows are big in the internet world. And although I think some makeup trends are more hyped up than they’re really worth, (SPOILER: I’m working on that post right now), I actually do really like these eyeshadows.

Grabby hands!

I know I’m a bit late to this game, but if you’ve been on the fence about these guys…jump off! Seriously, buy them. It cost me about 30 bucks to own the entire collection that Target was offering, that’s not a big commitment! You can even just do the $2.99 per Trio Plan, or the $4.99 for a 8 Pan Palette Plan.

Also if you are a makeup baby like me, I was pretty excited the first time I used these because each eyeshadow is labeled for where it’s supposed to go. It’s like a paint by number for your eyes. Now that I’ve used them a bit I kinda free style the eyeshadow, but the labels are helpful for beginners.

Gotta catch 'em all!

So for Part I of my feature on Things You Probably Already Know  Wet N Wild Color Icon Trios, I reviewed the guys I’m most likely to wear to work. Starting with the infamous…….

Walking on Eggshells

I know its a major blogging No-No that this palette has been used and abused, but take it as evidence that Walking on Eggshells is worth the hype.

So you can see what it looks like on a pale person.

When I wake up in the morning and I don’t feel like blending or thinking or moving, this is my Go-To eyeshadow look. Literally.

Morning commute. I get bored, ok?

It creates a soft neutral look that I like to pair with big lashes and pink lipstick. The pigmentation is great, and I have no problem blending it. (Which is saying something-because I have problems blending EVERYTHING.) Basically, stop what you are going and go buy it from Target, Walgreens, CVS, etc.

Sweet As Candy

Don't eat the eyeshadow.

Look, I don’t know your life, but if you work somewhere awesome that lets you wear purple lipstick and yellow eyeshadow, maybe wait for my next post in this series. If you are like me and work in a conservative setting, then you’ll probably like Sweet as Candy, as well.

***QUICK QUESTION*** Pink eyeshadow always seems to come out silvery on my eyelids unless I prime with white or beige primer first. Does anyone else have this problem? Just curious. THANKS.

Nice pigmentation!

This is another good Wet N Wild Trio for when I stumble out of bed and haven’t had coffee yet. I like the way the colors blend together, and add some big lashes and pink blush and I feel like a lady, rather than a ruffian with a caffeine problem. It’s easy cheesey peasy, is what I’m saying.

Silent Treatment

You can tell immediately which color I am actually a fan of.

So, I’m going against popular internet opinion to say that Silent Treatment is not my fave. It was the 2nd WetNWild Trio I bought because the internet told me to, but I was kinda disappointed. That’s not to say it’s bad, I actually really like the lid color, but I have the hardest time getting this sucker to blend. The crease color is also always splotchy on me. And as previously stated, I don’t have the time or energy for that on a daily basis. (AKA don’t put this on in the car on your way to work-you may have raccoon eyes by the time you arrive.) So I pull Silent Treatment out every now and then, but it’s not in a regular rotation.

That crease color even hates my arm.

If you are someone who loves Silent Treatment, let me know what you are doing, ok? Because I’m pretty sure this eyeshadow hates me.

Sigh. I tried.

Sigh. I tried.

Super tried.
