Wet n Wild Comfort Zone ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches


Wet n Wild Comfort Zone ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99, 8 x 0.0375 oz., Drugstore.com) is an 8-pan eyeshadow palette featuring 4 neutral shades and 4 green-tone shades. The palette is a cheap square plastic case with a clear lid to easily view the shades; there is no mirror.

Wet n Wild shades are unnamed, so I'll just describe each shade by its color--

Beige is a warm yellowed creamy beige with a frost finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture and great pigmentation. I think it's a bit too reflective as a brow bone highlight, so I like to pair it with a matte beige to tone down the frost.

Copper is a warm pinky copper with a metallic-frost finish. It is incredibly soft, smooth, and dense in texture with excellent pigmentation. It's a rather complex shade for a drugstore eyeshadow!

Brown is a warm medium bronze-brown with a satin finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with great pigmentation. Paired with the copper, it makes for a fantastic natural smokey eye!

Burgundy is a warm blackened reddish burgundy brown with gold shimmer and a satin finish. It has a dry, hard, thin texture with low pigmentation. It comes across more black in application. Wet n Wild has similar shades like this in other palettes--all of which are particularly poor.

Pewter is a cool smoky golden pewter with a high frost finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with great pigmentation. It's definitely my kind of eyeshadow shade!

Green is a light muted mossy green with a gold shift and soft frost finish. It's very soft, smooth, and dense with good pigmentation. Something about it lightens up the actual green base too much.

Dark Green is a blackened green with heavy brown influence and gold shimmer. It has a dry, hard, thin texture with good pigmentation, but mostly because of the black in it. I love it paired with the light green in the palette.

Burgundy-Teal is a duo-chrome shade with a burgundy base and teal flash. It has a hard, thin, smooth texture with good, build-able pigmentation. I love this paired with the pewter shade for a quick, complex look!
