In Our Makeup Bag: Wet ‘n Wild Walking on Eggshells
What It Is:
Wet ‘n Wild Walking on Eggshells Color Icon Trio
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
Budget and drugstore beauty brands are a college gal’s best friend. I obviously love my makeup, but sometimes I can’t afford to even step foot in Sephora for fear of falling in love with a product outside of my price range. Drugstore brands are a good way to tide yourself over during a bank account dry-spell, especially when they pump out quality products.
Wet ‘n Wild has been around for as long as I can remember. My first nail polishes were Wet ‘n Wild, way way back in the day. They’ve been good for those “one timers” (as in, you wear it one time and chuck it out without feeling guilty), but have recently started putting out a line of eye shadows that rival the best! Seriously, there are MAC dupes in these palettes! I knew I had to check this out and picked up Walking on Eggshells, a tame mix of white, brown and peach.
How To Use It:
The imprinting on the shadows make application pretty darn easy. The look that Wet ‘n Wild have come up with (peach on eyelid, brown in crease and then white as a highlight) is really pretty! However, I’ve been liking a slightly different combo of peach on the lid, white in the inner corner and then a smidgen of brown to line my upper and lower lashes. For a cheap trio, it’s surprisingly versatile – my favorite word!
CC Rating: A+
Trust me, I’m just as shocked as you are that this is getting an A+. A drugstore trio is beating out high-end beauty brands? You betcha! The shadows in this trio are super smooth and blendable and have gorgeous shimmer to them. They are so dimensional and make for a perfect everyday palette that swings a few ways.
I can’t wait to get my paws on the other trios in this collection! I’ve heard great things about the quality of the other color combos and have been assured that Walking on Eggshells isn’t just a fluke. Well done Wet ‘n Wild! If you’re looking for a cheap beauty fix, check out the Color Icon Trios!
