I am the worst beauty blogger. Ever. Recently, Andrea sent me some Wet’n’Wild eyeshadows as a part of my Secret Santa gift, and I just realized that I still haven’t even reviewed their Comfort Zone Palette that I got back in August when I was in California. I have no idea how it slipped out of my mind! I even took photos of it as soon as I came home and have been using it ever since, so I don’t know what happened.
Before I picked up the palette, I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, so my expectations were high, but I honestly didn’t expect it to be THAT good. The pigmentation is just crazy! I mean, look at those swatches! It is quite hard to believe that this palette costs only $5. The eyeshadows feel very buttery as well, which is another plus, and they also blend well and last long on my eyelids. Having said that, they do keep fading throughout the day, but for the price you pay for them, they are still very good and far better than any other drugstore eyeshadows I’ve tried.
What I also like about this palette is the shade selection. It contains the perfect mix of neutrals, and there are also a few extra interesting shades thrown in. The duochrome one is especially interesting, I think. The only one I stay away from is the light green shade, but that’s just because I feel like it doesn’t suit my eye colour or my complexion. As you can see, all the shades are shimmery, which I personally really like, but if you’re not a fan of them, you won’t be a fan of the Comfort Zone palette.
Now, I want to mention one more thing and tell you what I don’t like about this palette. The packaging. It looks very cheap, which I could disregard since the palette is literally cheap, but I have to mention it, because it is the reason why the eyeshadows shatter into a million pieces in case you’re clumsy like me and accidentally drop things. It has happened to me twice already with this palette and it never ended well. Luckily, I know how to fix shattered eyeshadows (if you want to know how to do it check out this video), but it’s still very annoying.
