Wet N’ Wild Color Icon Comfort Zone Palette: Swatches & Review

Guest Review By Marianne

Wet n Wild’s website says: Eight dynamic, perfectly color-coordinated shades with high pigment and pearl for ultra-impact color. Shades can be used together or individually to create an endless variety of looks.

A lot has been written about the Wet n Wild Color Icon Pallette and up for discussion today is The Comfort Zone palette ! This one is a great collection of shades, neutral ones for everyday and more colourful ones for when you want a bit of drama. The packaging is sturdy enough and comes with the full ingredients list, plus a few ideas for looks. Wet n Wild has also provided a dual sided brush with a sponge applicator on one end, but it is of horrible quality…the brush was frayed when it was brand new and sheds like crazy when washed. It can be kept just for emergency touch-ups.

The shadows each have imprints which tell you where to apply them, but of course you need not (and going by some of the shades, should not) follow them. All the shades are shimmery, except for two which have sparse glitter.

Shade 1 is a frosty pale gold, almost white. It applies a little sheerly, but it pigmented enough for the kind of shade it is.

Shade 2 is a pinkish gold that is great for festive looks. The texture is extremely soft and buttery and the brush will pick up too much shadow if you are not careful.

Shade 3 is a beautiful shimmery brown. I love this shade but unfortunately it is too close to the colour of my eyelids so it doesn’t show up much though it is very pigmented. Nevertheless, I end up using it the most from the eight shades.

Shade 4 is a dark brown with reddish glitter that doesn’t show up much on the eyelid. The texture is powdery and the pigmentation is through the roof. If you want to use it only for your outer corner or crease, you will have to be very careful and just touch your brush to the pan, a little more and it can overpower and ruin your entire eye makeup (happened to me!). It works great as a liner too.

Shade 5 is a very pretty, unique colour, a mix of grey and green that has a golden tinge to it. It is very pigmented and soft and will definitely not work as a browbone shade. It looks cool-toned, but it works well as a lid colour for me.

Shade 6 is a pretty light green with gold shimmer. It’s a lovely shade for when you want a pop of colour.

Shade 7 is the disappointing one – take a look at the swatch and you will know why! It is a blackened dark green with gold glitter, but it is very very chalky and has weak pigmentation. It is quite difficult to work with.

Shade 8 is the stunner of this palette. It is a dupe of the famous MAC Club and MAC Blue Brown pigment. A beautiful reddish-brown/blue duochrome, this one looks fabulous on the eyes! With a darker base underneath, it transforms into an eye-catching shimmery blue. This is a great shade for beginners who don’t feel comfortable using more than one shadow, because it takes on a lot of dimension on the eyes and actually looks like you have worn different eyeshadows on the lid, outer corner and crease!

The quality of these shadows is great across the board, with the exception of the blackened green. It would have been perfect if they had included a matte shade or two as well. There is no fallout if you tap your brush before applying. They last exceptionally well, too. They lasted the whole day on my slightly oily lids without any primer! You can easily remove them with even a water-based cleanser. The only minus point is that it is not available in India! Oh, and it contains parabens, for those who don’t like them.

  • Highly pigmented (almost all the shades)
  • Lasts long even without a primer
  • Very affordable
  • Availability in India
  • The blackened green shade is one big disappointment

Rating: A

Price: USD 4.99

Recommendation: This Wet n Wild Color Icon Pallette  is great value for money. For approximately 300 rupees, you get eight shadows, almost all of them great quality (Indian brands, please take note). This is one product you must try if you are visiting the US- or tell someone to get you some back when they are visiting !!!

An Indian woman named Marianne won CZ from my giveaway last year. It would be funny if this were the same person. :)

Yep…the last shade is pretty unique in itself.

This is amazing for the price. Love the warm, neutral side.
