Wet n' Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Review

Hello Ladies!
Its Claudia today to do a makeup related post.
I don't know about you guys but when it comes to eyeshadow I can be a bit picky. I love MAC and Urban Decay eyeshadows so a lot of drugstore eyeshadow doesn't cut it for me. I decided I would do a review on a drugstore eyeshadow that I have found has many similar qualities of high end eyeshadows, and for the price tag of just $3!

The Product: Wet n' Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Trios
These trios consist of 3 colors and each color is specific to either eyelid, crease or highlight.
The colors are all very smooth and apply like a dream, very blendable and I find even some of the crease colors work on the lid and vice versa.
I found that the eyelid colors are definately the smoothest applying in these palettes.
At $3 you get 3 colors and I would truly say the eyelid colors in these palettes are as good of quality as MAC eyeshadows except without a good primer they might crease. But with the Urban Decay Primer Potion I have no fallout or creasing.
I have tried 3 of the trios and will now include some photos below.

L-R: Walking on Eggshells, Silent Treatment, Knock on Wood

Quick picture of the 3 beautiful eyelid colors. Look at the pigmentation!

Walking On Eggshells: Beautiful neutral palette. Apparently the eyelid color is a spot on dupe for MAC's Naked Lunch e/s. Includes a champagne, light mid- tone brown, and an off- white shade.
Silent Treatment: I love the eyelid color in this palette. Sadly it is the only part I like. I don't like black eyeshadow so I don't use the crease color, plus it is the only chalky shade of the 3 palettes. Includes a plum undertoned taupe, shimmery black, and light pink shade.
Knock On Wood: This palette is very daring,  I think it will be gorgeous in fall. I find myself more often using the crease color on the lid and the lid color as the crease to tone it down. This is also my favorite highlight of the three, I have never seen such a unique pink. Includes a rose/berry, chocolate, and a very unique pink shade. For some reason the pink shade reminds me of fairies!

Shade Selection: 5/5
Pigmentation: 5/5
Blendability: 5/5
Packaging: 3/5
Overall I highly recommend these eyeshadows, try one out and see what you think!
Thanks for reading!
Love, Claudia
