Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Trio Eyeshadow: I Got Good Jeans

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 25 - 2011

My lovely friend Allyson sent me a selection of Wet n’ Wild palettes from across the pond and I’m working my way through them slowly.  Some of the colour combinations are frightening for a neutral-loving lady like me but they’re all pretty damn fantastic nonetheless and I’m enjoying breaking my safe boundaries!

Considering we can’t get these in the UK, I thought I’d work my way through the palettes and torture you a little with some photos of their goodness.

how hot is that blue?

Poor blue, I haven’t done it justice AT ALL!

Do you own any of these Wet n’ Wild Color Icon palettes?

    I have a few my favourite is the Wet ‘n’ wild comfort zone 8 pan palette (I have a couple) the colours are beautiful and they are so soft and blendable I LOVE them. They don’t compare with the wet ‘n’ wild we get in the UK.

  2. Lily says:

    You look fab in bolder colours! I remember when Boots had a Wet n Wild stand…I only saw it once though :/ Managed to grab an eyeliner before it disappeared!

  3. I think you look lovely in these colours! You make a budget palette look posh!

  4. nicoletta says:

    Looks great on you, i would not go for those colours unless i had seen them on as they look a bit scary in the pan xx

  5. I don’t own any of these palettes because we don’t really have access to the brand in Australia. I have seen a few blogs talk about these but your post has officially made me add it to my US shopping list for when I head there next month. Thank you for making me spend more money hahaha.

    Hi, I’ve read your blog for a while now but have never commented.. I just had to break my silence tell you how much I love this look though, it’s so pretty on you! My sister is going to America in a few weeks, I’m going to give her a big list of things to bring back and this will definitely be on it :) Such a shame we can’t get Wet n Wild here!

  7. Robyn says:

    Oooh, lovely look! You *must* get hold of Comfort Zone, it’s a fabulous neutral palette! I also love the Lust and Cool as a Cucumber palettes. I wish we could get hold of these easier in the UK ‘cos I’m addicted.

  8. Ashley says:

    You look fabulous!
    How do you manage to make budget make up look like it’s worth gold?!

  9. Chelsea says:

    That shimmery light blue on the brow bone? They mad?

  10. Kirsty says:

    Man, I have wanted one of those trios for ages now (the one that looks like neopolitan ice cream…nom).

  11. marie says:

    such a nice color combination :)

  12. Julia says:

    We have these here but not all the new colors I should say…I gave a few to my younger girl cousins for Christmas :)

  13. Citrine says:

    Wow…what a stunning look! I didn’t know the blue-silver highlight looks so good.

  14. pip says:

    That looks great on you!

    I’ve tried to create a similar look with colours I already own, and I’ll definitely try it again.

    I have the Cool as a Cucumber and Greed palettes that I got from ebay after drooling over Christine’s swatches on Temptalia for weeks.

  15. Leah says:

    Hehe, that last shot looks a bit ‘Check me out!’ and rightly so, it’s bloody gorge on you :>

  16. Viv in the UK says:

    Oooh this is just TOO cruel!!! These are just lovely, and I can’t get them in the UK :(

  17. bluevelvet123 says:

    I have Silent Treatment. Love it. It’s my go to look. Feel a bit bereaved cos my daughter borrowed it and has spent the night away from home.

  18. Donna says:

    Wet n Wild may be a budget brand but their eyeshadows rock! I’ve been meaning to pick up some of the blushes too, since I’ve heard those are very good too.

  19. Appu says:

    Wow! That’s a gorgeous look. Whatever is on your lips is fantastic! I love WnW shadows…they do have quite a bit of fallout but amazing payoff :)

  20. Eden-Avalon says:

    I just bought the 8 pan palette in pedal pusher and I’m so excited to review it! All the posts on these palettes have been so positive! You did a great job with these. I wasn’t sure how the orange/gold would integrate but you did a beautiful job.

  21. Sydney says:

    The colours look horrid together in the pan, yet somehow you have made them work and made me want to join you in wearing it!

    Off to Canada/America in a week so will have to grab one of these (and maybe a couple more!!)

  22. Look at you, Skinny Minnie!

  23. Holy frak I NEED this palette, I think I’d just do the gold on the lid and dark blue in the crease and wear that combo for days!

  24. Dia says:

    I haven’t tried any of these palettes, but as soon as I saw this (and your amazing application of it), I knew I had to have it. Thankfully I found it at Rite Aid, and for only US$1.99!! Can’t wait to try it out- hope it looks at least half as good on me as it does on you. :)

  25. Ramona says:

    Love the name of this palette in French: “Never Without My Jeans.” Can’t that’s true for me but the colors are gorgeous.

  26. Ana says:

    Are they dupes for any eyeshadows out there? Probably from MAC or Urban Decay?
