Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth Looks Small From Down Here Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth Looks Small From Down Here Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth Looks Small From Down Here Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a limited edition palette from Wet ‘n’ Wild’s Dream Weavers Collection, which you can find at various drugstores–but the collection is not carried at all locations/stores, so you might want to call ahead. This trio contains a greenish gold, navy blue, and grassy green.

The Browbone shade is an olive green interwoven with antique gold with a frost finish. The green dominates this color, whereas we typically see antique golds that cast green but still read gold. I thought this would compare with Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon, but it doesn’t; it’s so much greener, they’re not even close. Bare Minerals Spectacular is closer but it has a browner base, so it appears darker and the finish is more metallic. Urban Decay Urb is greener (and terrible quality). theBalm Makeout Mary was the closest I could think of, but it doesn’t have as much gold (it ends up looking greener). The texture of this browbone shade is soft and smooth, and it has good color payoff.

The Crease shade is a purpled navy blue with a soft frost finish. The texture is drier and not as dense as the browbone shade, but the color payoff is still nice, though it isn’t as pigmented as the browbone shade. Urban Decay Goddess is similar in color but sheer, while Make Up For Ever #81 is darker. I expect MAC Contrast compares well with this shade though probably darker.

The Eyelid shade is a cool-toned grassy green with a soft frost finish. The texture is soft here, and the color payoff is good–there is no dryness like there was with the crease shade, but it’s not quite as dense as the browbone shade. This color is almost an exact dupe for Urban Decay Graffiti.

This is a really nice trio to work with, and finding these kinds of colors with good color payoff at this price point can be difficult.
