I review a lot of high end products on here, mostly because I’m a brand whore and that’s just what I go for. Lately I’ve been wanting to bring you more affordable drugstore brands as well so that I can cover as many different brands as I can as well as show you that drugstore can be just as good (if not better) as designer.
When I would think of the brand Wet N Wild I thought of cheapo makeup that you would give to your child when they started wanting to be “adult” and wear makeup. Lately I’ve been noticing this brand really coming into their own. You’re hearing more about them and their products are becoming more competitive while still staying true to their awesome price point.
Today I bring you the Wet N Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Trio in Knock On Wood (383B). I haven’t seen these too much. I don’t think they’re limited edition (don’t quote me on that) but they seem to sell out lightning fast.
Knock On Wood is a gorgeous trio of shades (pink, burnished khaki/brown, burgandy). I really loved it on my brown eyes, but I really think this would look awesome with blue or green eyes as well.
The pigment was pretty nice, I was extremely impressed. I used the shades over Urban Decay Sin Primer Potion and they stayed on all day with no creasing. The middle crease shade DID fade a bit, but was still visible. I used the burgandy shade on my lash line and blended up over top of MAC Raven Kohl Power. I had NO fall out upon application. Which makes it pretty awesome, IMO, because more often than not high end brands give me fall out. These obviously aren’t as pigmented, but they give you what you need in a good way.
I always see Wet N Wild products broken… (see left palette in the pic way above) … I don’t know if they’re extremely delicate or shoppers just don’t care when they smash stuff. I really loved the shattered trio above, so I bought it anyway. I figured for $2.99 who cares lol Everyone knows I love the taupes! More on that later, though .. hehe
The Wet N Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Trio’s are extremely affordable at $2.99 a pop. Who can beat it?
On my wishlist? Don’t Steal My Thunder, Walking On Eggshells, and Sweet As Candy. Though, because the price is so low, it’s likely I’ll buy them all.
Have you tried the WNW shadows? What are your thoughts?
