I follow a fair few American beauty bloggers and vloggers so I hear a lot about the products that are popular over there. Wet 'n Wild was one of those brands that has a fairly big hype around a few of their products, which even British beauty bloggers make a point of picking up when they're in the US. Living in Switzerland I've made my peace with the fact that my drugstore makeup choices are fairly limited, so you can imagine my surprise when I went into a recently refurbished drugstore in Zurich and saw a Wet 'n Wild display! Most of the products I'd heard rave-reviews about were already gone - clearly I'm not the only beauty obsessive who frequents Coop City. I did, however, manage to snatch up the Comfort Zone palette, a product that I vaguely remembered being mentioned a few times.

Although there is a lot of hype around some of Wet 'n Wild's eyeshadow palettes, I didn't really get my hopes up too high. I mean, when has an eight-panned eyeshadow palette bought for a fiver ever really blown my socks off - never. Until now, that is. The palette has a great range of shades to cover day to night and everything in between. Even upon first swatch the quality of these shadows is apparent. Finely milled with great pigmentation and wonderfully blendable, these are a pleasure to work with. I often find that some drugstore eyeshadows can be chalky in consistency, with minimal colour payoff and will crease on me within a few hours. None of that here. These wore all day on me without creasing - even through a stressful driving lesson with me thrashing about in every which direction. 

Now, if that wasn't reason enough to pick this palette up, it contains some very good dupes for some pricier eyeshadows. I haven't extensively compared all of the shadows in the palette with those in my stash yet, but upon swatching them I noticed some similarities. Straight after having a good look at the eyeshadows, I noticed that the definer shade on the right side of the palette is reminiscent of MAC's Club eyeshadow. I would say that the Wet 'n Wild shade has a redder undertone, but I can definitely see a likeness. The definer shade on the left side looks black at first glance but actually has an orangey shimmer running through it. It reminds me of a slightly less shimmery Urban Decay Blackheart, a shade that features in the Naked 3 palette.

Overall, I really love this palette. Yes, the packaging isn't the most aesthetically pleasing, but for £5, I really can't complain. I expect I'll be spending some time lurking near the display, waiting for them to restock - I definitely feel as if another Wet 'n Wild purchase is in order.

  1. I've read some great things about the Wet 'n' Wild palettes, but haven't seen them stocked anywhere in the UK! The shades in this look lovely though, especially the definer on the right side! You seem to get a lot for your money with this :) x

    1. It's such a shame they don't sell Wet 'n Wild in the UK drugstores yet, hopefully they'll stock it there soon! The definer shade on the right really is gorgeous. You're right, you definitely get a lot for your money with this palette! xo
