Wet 'n' Wild Silent Treatment Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio: Silent Treatment

Wet ‘n’ Wild Silent Treatment Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a neutral-themed eyeshadow trio that performs nicely and lasts all day (I included some photos of the look I used to test this trio about six hours after application).  It’s a little cool-toned, but the soft peach highlighter adds a touch of warmth. The crease shade is a dark, neutral-cool brown with gold shimmer–I was surprised at how it didn’t come off as a warmer brown from all of the gold shimmer.  I did feel that the gold flecks did not really come across when applied, but they didn’t land all over my under eye, either.    The eyelid shade is a mauve-tinted silvered brown; it’s a surprisingly complex shade.

my thoughts on the formula: Color Icon Eyeshadows are definitely some of the best eyeshadows you’ll find in the drugstore, and this trio is well-pigmented, smooth to the touch, and the colors themselves performed well in a wear test–easy to apply and blend while lasting the eight hours I wore it for (without any fading that I could see).  However, these seem to work best directly over a base, rather than layered on top of each other–like I layered the eyelid shade over the crease shade, and I felt like I had to pack more of it on to get it to really show.

P.S. – I used this trio to do a drop test – I dropped it from 4 feet above tile floor, and it survived completely intact. The packaging did not break or crack, and the eyeshadow themselves were unharmed.

B+
The Silent Treatment trio worked out really well, and I think these are some nice neutrals, not just because of color pay off, but the shades themselves--interesting and not too warm or cool.
