Those who do not like wearing makeup on a regular basis may still have a few lipsticks lying around, but not as many eyeshadows. On the other hand, makeup lovers are on a constant hunt for eyeshadow palettes that have a good mix of neutral and bold colors. The Wet n Wild Color Icon Comfort Zone Palette caters to the needs of both beginners and experts at applying eye makeup.
The palette has a total of 8 shades that consist of 2 browbone shades, 2 crease shades, 2 eyelid shades and 2 definer shades. All the shades are labeled accordingly and there are also different suggestions provided on the packaging regarding creating simple as well as dramatic looks. These instructions are very useful for those who are not comfortable with eyeshadows and will help to create a beautiful look without having to waste time on coming up with a good color combination. The brush that comes with the palette is quite useless and I always use my Zoeva blending brush with these colors.
The hand swatches are in the same order as placed in the packaging. Bear in mind that the colors look less pigmented on the hand than they do on the eyes. They are not overly pigmented, though, which is actually better for beginners as they can play around and blend out the mistakes. Also, the formula is a little powdery, so it is best to use a wet brush and apply some concealer or primer on the lids to avoid fallout and achieve more pigmentation. All the shades are blendable and buildable and you can create a ton of different looks by mixing and matching. My favorite colors are the two eyelid shades and the definer shade on the right. The definer shade is a unique combination of peacock blue shimmer embedded in a brown color, which looks amazing as a lid shade for a night out. Here is a colorful look that I created with all the shadows on the right side.
The only two cons of this palette are that all the shades are shimmery and that the formula is quite powdery. Other than that, I do not have any complaints about the palette as it helps me to create a new look each day. It is available for INR 1200 in India, which is quite good for 8 shades. I would recommend this palette to those of you who like earthy tones and are wanting to explore new eyeshadow looks.
