Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in Walking on Eggshells


Color Icon™ Eyeshadow Trio

Coordinating trio shades takes the guesswork out of creating the perfect eye look. The "how to" palettes are created to highlight, define, and accentuate specific eye colors to create unique looks.

Pros:

-The packaging is very travel friendly in regards to size (not so much in terms of the flimsy plastic case), its very compact and comes with all the colors you need to do your eyes (lid, crease, highlight)
-I love how Wet n Wild gives you a smaller pan for the crease color because you're obviously going to be using less of the darker colors so it really shows they put some thought into putting these trios together
-I got mine when a 40% off Wet n Wild sale was going on (so it was only a little over a $1.50), but even at full price ($2.99) these trios are an absolute steal!
-"Walking on Eggshells" is one of the trios with gorgeous neutral colors that will work for any eye color
-The shadows are buttery smooth, they apply like a dream!
-Because they're so soft, the colors blend really well
-I like that Wet n Wild has the uses for each shadow labeled on the shadows themselves and then gives a little diagram on the back of the trio, it can really help out someone who is less experienced with eyeshadows
-The colors in this trio actually work well together, I've seen some of the other ones that don't have the best combination of shadows
-I've never experienced any fallout when using the "Waling on Eggshells" trio

Cons:

-Instead of just one crappy little applicator you get two!
-I wish Wet n Wild has included a matte shade in this trio, the shimmer can be a little overwhelming at times
-I really hate the signature Wet n Wild plastic packaging, I wouldn't mind paying an extra couple of dollars for something that's not a flimsy plastic lid. It scratches like no other and feels like it would break if I dropped it
-The staying power is not that good, the colors really begin to fade after 3 hours even with a good primer and I sometimes get creasing
-People go nuts over the Wet n Wild trios, so certain ones can be hard to find (I had to look at 3 different drugstores to find "Walking on Eggshells")
-I'm not a fan of all the weird names of the trios, I kinda wish they would come up with simpler, more straight forward names!
-The little preview pictures on the Wet n Wild site are misleading, the trios look completely different so be careful ordering any of them online

Overall:

Everybody, and I mean absolutely everybody, should drive on down to their local drugstore and grab this! I don't care if you've been doing makeup for years or you just started last week, this Wet n Wild trio in "Walking on Eggshells" is so neutral and such great quality that you need to own it. Whether I just want to use one shade or I'm in a hurry and need the whole thing for a quick eye look, I'm constantly reaching for these shadows! At the dirt cheap price of $2.99 (or $1.79 if you can catch Wet n Wild on a 40% off sale), you have no excuse to not add this to your collection!

  1. I recieved this in a kris kringle, it's fantastic isn't it. The lightest shade is perfect for highlighting. Although some of the other ones don't have the best combination of colours, I've seen some particularly nifty bloggers do some amazing looks with them.

    1. Yes Wet n Wild has definitely nailed it with these trios! I agree that not all of them have a good combination of colors, but that's just another reason to grab them all ;).

  3. I have two single wet' n wild eyeshadows and I love them! I always have trouble finding the larger 6 pan palettes that people rave about, but I have seen walking on eggshells a few times and contemplated buying it. I thought the one shade looked a little too pink, but it doesn't seem to in your swatches

    1. I have yet to try any of their single shadows! Yeah, the 6 pan palettes are tricky, the best place to find them is Walgreens. The pink shade turns very champagne on the lids, its almost an exact dupe for Urban Decay Sin!
