REVIEW -- Wet N Wild 'Walking on Eggshells'

Hey everyone! First.. what do you think of my new blog header? I'm so proud of it.. I made it all by myself! I think it fits so much better than the old one. Plus, I got tired of seeing my face stare back at me every time I loaded my blog, haha! But now, on to the review!

After I received Wet N Wild's Color Icon 6 Pans to review, I knew I needed to get my hands on more of their eye shadows ASAP. Unfortunately, trying to find the multi-pan shadows in my area is a nightmare, but I'd heard rumors that you can snag them at Big Lots. I was about as wary about buying cosmetics at Big Lots as I was buying it from the Dollar Tree.. but I decided to suck it up and try my luck.

Now don't quote me on this, but I believe the Color Icon trios retail for $3. Since I got mine at Big Lots, I paid $2 for mine. Big Lots had 3 or 4 different trios to pick from but Walking on Eggshells was the only one that really caught my eye. 

Here are the swatches. As always, no primer or concealer was used.

I am consistently amazed by how smooth and pigmented Wet N Wild's eyeshadows are. Walking on Eggshells is a great neutral palette that can be used for a variety of looks. We woke up late over the weekend and I used my fingers to apply Walking on Eggshells in the car on the way to the fields for Chris' frisbee tournament where we were going to be outside all day. It gave me a very simple and natural look. However, I can also wear this with everyday makeup or apply it over NYX's 'Cottage Cheese' Jumbo Eye Pencil for a more dramatic evening look.

I can honestly say there's not one thing about this palette that I dislike. The quality of the shadow is superb and I love the colors. The price point is great and I plan on going back to Big Lots to pick up a couple of extra trios. Therefore, I'm giving this palette a perfect score!
RATING 5.0 out of 5 STARS

  1. This is a great palette! I love the colors. I'm more comfortable with neutrals. I'm so boring, I'm not confident enough with my makeup skills to do anything to vibrant, so this palette is great for me!

  2. I'm the same! I loooooove neutrals. I always feel most confident wearing them. Although I feel secure wearing purples and pinks.. but greens/blues/blacks? Not a chance. ♥

  3. I love wet n wild walking on eggshells. They compare with high end mac eyeshadows. Thank you for the great review!
