I feel so late to the Wet n Wild bandwagon! It’s not available at any stores in my area. I am lucky that my Superstore is now stocking more of these products, and snapped up Wet n Wild Brulee and Silent Treatment eye shadows at all of $1.47 and $2.67 respectively! I also grabbed a Night Prowl nail polish at $1.47 which will be swatched at a later date, I’m still enjoying my black and white speckles over red from yesterday’s manicure!
First up, Wet n Wild Brulee. This is a smooth as silk, nicely pigmented, creamy matte nude shade. It is lovely. I can easily see myself using this daily as a brow or blending shade. It matches my skin nicely (NC20/25). Wet n Wild Brulee is also not a bad dupe for MAC Brule, either. Packaging is pretty basic. It’s compact, relatively sturdy, easy to open, provides a clear view of the product and contains 0.06oz/1.7g of shadow. Not too shabby for $1.47!
Next up, Wet n Wild Silent Treatment Coloricon trio. Same basic packaging, only this one is tougher to open. At least I’m assured it won’t be pigmenting the inside of my purse!
The browbone shade is a creamy, peachy pink leaning highlighter. I’d more likely use this on my lid for a lighter eyelook, as I don’t like frost on my browbone. This would still work well in the inner corner, however. This shade isn’t too far off from being a dupe for MAC Jest, seems it might be just a bit pinker.
The crease shade is a deep dark cooler tone brown, fairly strongly pigmented. It also contains beautiful copper micro glitter which you can see in the sun. It reminds me a bit of the crease shade on the right side of the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette, perhaps a bit warmer brown and slightly better pigment.
The eyelid shade is a pewtery taupe with a hint of brown. It is beautiful. I just tried this against all other similar taupes in my collection and none are as smooth, pigmented, and glowy as this. Cover Girl’s Tapestry Taupe comes close but doesn’t wear as well. Some taupey shades from the Physician’s Formula Nude palette weren’t bad on texture but not as pigmented. The Wet n Wild wins hands down. This eyelid shade may also be a dupe for MAC Satin Taupe, but it seems a bit cooler to me.
Each of these shades were smooth, creamy, buttery, super soft silky-satiny feeling and blended well. They wore comfortably for the day on my eye. Below are the shadows swatched, from top to bottom Wet n Wild Brulee, Wet n Wild Silent Treatment Browbone, Crease and Eyelid shades.
These were hard to capture properly in the sun but I wanted to show this one anyway as you’re able to see the lovely coppery micro glitter in the crease shade!
Below are the products on my eye. I did not use the browbone shade on my browbone as I can’t stand that area being frosty (and I have a lotta browbone – it’s just too much with frost!) I did however use the browbone shade on the inner coner, and would probably use it alone on the lid as well. I used Brulee on my browbone and the crease and lid shades as they were labeled. I also used a bit of the crease shade wet as a bit of eyeliner.
Four beautifully pigmented, easily blendable, highly wearable shades for less than $4.25 in total? Incredible! I wish these were available to me sooner!
With formulations this good at a cost so low, it makes me wonder what other, more well known, more widely available, higher priced brands have been doing with their time in the formulation lab. Perhaps all that extra cost to the consumer is mainly spent on advertising their sub par products, because they don’t sell themselves.
Wet n Wild isn’t advertised here from what I can tell, making it depend on word of mouth and blog posts like these. Well done, Wet n Wild. These eye shadows are fantastic, and they do sell themselves, please keep it up!
