Wet-n-Wild Color Icon Palettes Review and Swatches

I recently had the opportunity to test out some of Wet n Wild's Color Icon Palettes, and I am so happy that I have discovered these. If you haven't tried Wet n Wild products for the past few years, PLEASE give them another try. Wet n Wild has some really amazing products for the price, and I am very impressed with the quality of their eyeshadows!

Overall, I've found Wet n Wild eyeshadows to be highly pigmented and easy to apply. They are VERY soft, which is great for application, but be careful with the palettes. I accidentally dropped a few on the ground, and they shattered. Thankfully the shadows are soft that I was able to press them back together easily, though.

On Cloud Nine Trio
Shimmery silvery blue, matte medium brown, and medium blue shimmer


I love this palette. I think it's a really beautiful blue smokey eye look. 

Knock on Wood Trio
Dusty rose shimmer, medium brown shimmer, burgandy shimmer


This palette would be an amazing fall eye look. The colors are great because depending on how heavy you apply the shadows, this look could be very natural or highly dramatic.

Sweet as Candy Trio
Light pinkish-nude shimmer, matte dark brown with glitter, light taupe shimmer


Beautiful neutral eye! Add more of the crease color to increase the drama. The eyelid color, a metallic taupe, 
is so, so gorgeous.

Cool as a Cucumber Trio
Light yellowish seafoam green, dark purple, dark mossy green shimmer


I think all of the colors in this palette are really interesting. I'd definitely wear the pale green with the mossy green, but I'm not sure how the purple ties in to the look. 

Silent Treatment Trio
Champagne shimmer, medium brown shimmer, light pinkish-taupe shimmer


This is my favorite palette by far. The brown crease color is a dupe for Urban Decay's Smog, one of my all-time favorites, and the eyelid and brow bone colors are so beautiful. This is a great palette for everyday school or office looks.

Spoiled Brat Trio
Silver shimmer, matte black with glitter, hot pink


Spoiled Brat is such a fun palette. The silver is so pigmented and metallic- I'm in love. The crease color- a matte black with glitter- is a dupe for Urban Decay's Oil Slick. I think this is a really fun night look for parties!

I Got Good Jeans Trio
Light silvery blue shimmer, dark blue shimmer, metallic yellow gold


Such a lovely palette. All of these colors are so pigmented and creamy, and I think that I'll be sporting this look quite a bit this fall and winter.

I Dream of Greenie Trio
Palest green, bright green, neon green


I really love the middle green color- it's so vibrant and a really fun accent color. The pale green and neon lime green are very unique, but unfortunately they don't work with my skin tone.

Overall, I have become a huge fan of the Wet n Wild palettes. Their eyeshadows are highly pigmented and smooth, and the colors are gorgeous at an extremely reasonable price. I wish that the packaging was a bit sturdier to protect the super-soft shadows, but for only a few dollars a palette, I can't complain. I'm currently searching for the Gilded Age palettes, so let me know where you've spotted them!

Have you tried the Wet n Wild palettes? If so, what was your experience with them?

FTC Disclaimer: I received products for review; however, all of my opinions are 100% honest and unbiased.


  1. Ahh I just purchased quite a few of these trios at Rite Aid today because of their 40% off deal. I can't wait to go home and play with them! Nice post.

  2. Oh my, those are just beautiful. I used to use Wet n' Wild's bronzer (until they stopped selling it at my local drugstore.) I love those shadows, I might have to pop into CVS soon and pick me up a couple (sweet as candy and spoiled brat to be exact.) Thanks for another great review :)

  3. Thanks for the suggestion! Confession: I wear like zero makeup and just recently (like today) decided I needed to be a big girl and try out different things! I will be running out to get my very own palette soon!

  4. Lovely colors, the color payoff is really good.


  5. I love how each trio has the 'eyelid', 'crease' and 'browbone' embossed into it.
    The last one looks fantastic colours, but I wouldnt be able to wear them!

  6. These colors are amazingly pigmented! I have been wanting to get some wet n wild shadows because I hear they are great, and now I need to get some for sure! Thanks for the swatches! XOXO

  7. I might have to try one of these out! I love how they have the instructions, too.

  8. The colors are very pretty! I will have to try them out.. I also like how it says where to put it!

  9. Such a fun post! I love mixing it up.

  10. I've been looking for the spoiled brat trio and it's always out! Love these though! xo

  11. Wow Wet n Wild is really stepping up their game! Glad to hear this. I usually just stick to them for cheap nail polish! I'll have to check this out.
