Anyone else feeling like the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette is a cult product now?  I have seen it everywhere and always thought, really?  Wet n Wild?  Beauty bloggers weren’t kidding.  This eight-shadow palette packs a serious punch.

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette

With naturals on the left and greens on the right, Wet N Wild takes all the guess work out of wearing eyeshadow.  They group complimentary colors, label for easy placement, and describe looks by intensity on the back.


As a whole, this palette is filled with warm eyeshadows.  The neutrals not only work well as a set, but also with other shadows that need staple colors to pull together a look.  The first three shades are shimmery.  The definer shade has orange and copper glitter in the pan.  But when worn I no longer see the dimension.

The green side is surprising.  The browbone shade is far lighter when worn than it appears in pan.  The crease shade is the same as the chocolate definer and (thankfully) is not heavy on the glitter.  The definer shade doesn’t seem to match the rest of the palette when swatched but manages to work when worn (see below).

For those of you thinking the duochrome definer looks familiar, you’re right!  It looks a lot like Too Faced Petals to the Metal (review).  Would I call Wet N Wild a dupe?  No.  It’s pretty obvious that Too Faced has more brown and green while Wet N Wild is more red-brown and blue.  And yes, I still prefer Too Faced.

The right side of the palette wears so well with brown eyeliner and nude blush and lips.  Just make sure (as always) to keep those brows nice and full to pull off the full “wild” look from the Comfort Zone palette!  For the sake of this post, I didn’t create a fully wild look.  I simply stuck to the placement recommended by Wet N Wild to show off a finished eye.

Price: $4.99

Availability: Walgreens

Summary: Wet N Wild Color Icon Collection Eyeshadow in Comfort Zone is a bargain of a palette offering a variety of neutral shades, two green, and one exotic duochrome eyeshadows.  The texture rivals higher end formulas but with use I’ve noticed the same “caking over” effect as other drugstore brands and expect the top layer will need to be removed after continued use.  The packaging is expected for the price but is not manicure-friendly.  Overall, this is a solid palette and a fantastic choice for any makeup wearer.
