I have recently acquired 4 new WnW shadow sets- two at my Lash Bash (read all about that awesome night HERE), and two on my recent shopping spree.
Wet 'n' Wild, despite being a pain to type, is a really wonderful drug store brand. If you haven't tried it since the 90's (or before), they have reformulated their products, and many are on par with prestige brands- this is by far my favorite drug store eye shadow brand! While there was a dud in the bunch (at least for me), these shadows went on super smooth, lasted a long time, and didn't crease. At this price point ($2.99 for the trios), I just don't see how you could go wrong!
The Fergie palettes I've only seen at Walgreens, but they are probably available at other stores also and I've just not noticed them. I've seen Wet 'n' Wild eye shadow trios pretty much every where- the grocery store, WalMart, Walgreens, Dollar General- I'd be willing to bet that if you looked for these the next time you go shopping anywhere they sell general merchandise, you'll find them!
All swatches are done on both bare skin, and over NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.
Ok, enough hype- here's what you came here for- pictures and in depth review of the only average variety.
|Wet N Wild Silent Treatment Trio|
This lovely trio was a prize from the White Elephant gift exchange at my Lash bash. This is super pretty, and went on really smoothly for me.

I used this mini eye palette to create a pretty, neutral eye look with a bit of drama:

I definitely won't be "silent" about this trio- it is absolutely beautiful and definitely a win for me!

|Wet 'N' Wild Fergie Collection in Desert Festival|
This is a gorgeous palette for fall! Ipsy sent this out to some subscribers, but not to me. I hopped over to Walgreens, and picked this pretty set up. I love the oranges and browns in this palette, and they are wonderfully pigmented!

This is the one palette that was more that $3- it retails for $4.99, but I found a peely coupon on mine at my local Walgreens, for $1 off!

Walking on Eggshells by Wet 'n' Wild
If you don't already own this trio, what are you waiting for?! The cream and pink are ALMOST dupes for the pink and cream in the Peek-A-Bright Eyes kit from Benefit Cosmetics; the brown is much warmer than the one in the kit, but it was very easy to duplicate the look that this prestige kit provides. I just love this soft, pretty look. It makes my blue eyes "pop"- which I could show you if I had been smart enough to take a picture with my eyes...open. Insert "Average" joke here.
Until next time, my lovelies- stay Average!
