Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection (8 Pan)

I'm sure the majority of you have these or have seen them before, but I figured I would post a review and swatches of them just in case someone hasn't! I'm not sure if these are as popular in Canada as they are in the US, but whenever I see them in stores, they're almost always fully stocked.

I heard about these palettes before they were released in Canada, so I purchased two of them in the US and bought one on Ebay. They finally came to Canada a few months after, which I would have waited for had I known they were coming.

You can purchase these for about $5 at WalMart (US and Canada).

These palettes come with a mix of matte, shimmery and glittery eyeshadows. The quality of these eyeshadows is amazing for the price, but I would say that of the three, I wouldn't repurchase Blue Had Me at Hello. The quality of the eyeshadows in the blue palette aren't as good as the rest, as you can see in the swatches. It comes with a matte black and a shimmery black and although the matte one is all right, the shimmery one is terrible.

Comfort Zone is a dupe for the Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow in Ludwig. It's 1/10th of the price of the Kat Von D palette and half of the Comfort Zone colours are almost exactly the same!

The third, fourth, sixth and seventh eyeshadows are dupes for some colours in the Comfort Zone palette.

The top colour on the left side is a dupe for the third colour in Ludwig.
The second colour from the top of the left side is a dupe for the sixth colour in Ludwig.

I think it's useful that the eyeshadows are imprinted with the name of the location on the eye where they could be placed on, but of course, you aren't limited to their suggestions.

I would definitely recommend these 8 pan Wet n Wild palettes. If you're not really into bright colours but would like to try some out, these palettes are great to experiment with because they are so inexpensive and widely available.
