Wet'n'Wild has been in Ireland now for nearly a year and the craze for getting your hands on it is over. But for me, I'm still last to the party as always. I have a few of the trio eye shadow palettes, some foundations, concealers, other eye and lip products. But what I have lusted over for a really long time was this Colour Icon Comfort Zone palette. I told myself lots of times I didn't need it, I had loads of make up already. But the other day I couldn't hold out any longer and got it. After all W'n'W is a budget brand so this was less then €8, a steal.
This has 8 gorgeous highly pigmented colours that are so easy to build up. You can follow the guidelines on the back to create different looks or choose your own mixing and matching. I really like that all the W'n'W palettes have what colour can go where printed into the shadows themselves for those of us that might not be too sure about that sort of thing. I've been wearing make up for years and still have to idea what I'm doing most of the time.
If there was a palette made just for me, this one has to be it. Theres a really lovely mixture of lights and darks here. I especially love the browns on the left side, they would be my go-to shades most days. All of the shadows have a slight shimmer to them as well, which happens to be right up my street! Give me all of the glitter, thank you please. I've yet to use the green side as I have green eyes and think it could be a little much. I'll no doubt update everyone on Twitter or Instagram when I've finally had a play with them, even if I come out looking a fright! One particular shade that I am in love with is the definer in the green side of the palette. I'd have bought the entire thing just for that one colour. It isn't showing up well on the swatches below, but in real life its the most unusual shade I've ever seen and I think it will be like having a mermaid on my eyeballs once I use it.
The packaging itself isn't the strongest, but then again when the product is quite cheap that sort of thing can easily be overlooked. I've already managed to crack the front of it after putting it in my make up bag for the day. This also comes with a little double sided sponge and brush applicator, although I doubt I'd use it as I like using my own brushes for that. (I'm getting posh in my old age. I remember a time when they were the only things I used!) Overall I have found a new love with this and think it only right that everyone in Ireland (and everywhere else for that matter) go out and buy one in the near future. Go on, you need it. Really!
