Wet 'n' Wild Fly Me to the Moon Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Fly Me to the Moon Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Fly Me to the Moon Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is a cool-toned mix of white, black, and blue. It’s a shame that this trio ended up being poor performing all around, because I think the color combination is beautiful and could have worked so well together.

The Browbone shade is sheer, frosted cool-toned white. This has a very chunky texture–the shimmer feels like it is in pieces, so it results in fall out when applied to the lid. The color itself is also sheer. It’s a cooler-toned white than theBalm Tempting Tara.

The Crease shade is a mostly matte black with silver sparkle. It’s sheer, chalky, and very dry. The application is poor, because it is difficult to blend out. It’s an inferior version of NARS Night Breed.

The Eyelid shade is a medium-dark navy blue. It is dry and sheer, and the funniest part is that the texture and poor color payoff make it look like a different color than the pan. I did a double-take when I was comparing swatches and photos–I actually re-swatched, and it really is as unmatched as it seemed.

Even for $2.99, I would still pass on this. Wet 'n' Wild does better eyeshadow than this--poor color payoff is one thing, just as drier textures is another, but taken together, it makes for a rather frustrating pairing.

  1. Generally wet n wild comes out with great eyeshadows..super pigmentation and at a good price.Sad this one didn’t do well.

    Nooooo! I love the Wet N Wild trios. I have a bunch of them and love them all! This one looks so pretty. Very disappointed.

  3. Carrie

    Yikes! But then, I’ve always found Wet ‘n Wild blacks to never really work and their whites are kind of dubious too. It’s like they were asking for trouble with this trio.

    I actually had pretty good results with this trio (except for the white). I did swatch it over my favorite sticky primer, though, which is really good at amping up colors.

    Christine, I think you were even generous giving it a D+. I don’t like them at all. I’ve tried WW products before and I can never make them work and those swatches say a lot.

  6. Too bad, this would have been a great color combo I’d definitely be willing to try at $3 !

    I finally found this and bought it for the blue shade. Since I only use blue shadows for my lower lashline it was fine smudged with a matching blue liner. Otherwise, it is pretty cruddy.

    I love how you are always honest even if it is a sample sent to you. I’ve given up on some other bloggers because they absolutely always have something good to say about products that are sent to them. Please don’t change!

    • Out of the numerous companies that have sent samples, only a few have ever given me any backlash for a negative review – and none of them major brands. When I was in NYC for Fashion Week, I ran into several people I work with regularly, and many said they appreciated my honesty and made their product development teams read my reviews (all which should be taken with at least a few grains of salt, yeah? :)) — but most brands get it: my loyalty is to readers, no one else. Thank you!

    Interesting. I don’t use primer with my Fly Me to the Moon, and my blue is creamy, bright, and pigmented. :/ I’m wondering if you got a weird one. Even the black is pretty creamy for my trio. I do agree on the weird, sheer flaky white though.

    That black shade looks like it will be super-duper pigmented. It is so dissapointing once swatched!

    Same with the blue though.

    You know, I’ve tried the Wet n’ Wild shadows that have gotten very good reviews and had major fallout, chalkiness, unevenness and generally awful performance from those, so I’m not even going to look at this one. I don’t have the cash to buy higher end makeup right now, but I also don’t have cash to throw away on makeup that doesn’t work well. Not worth the frustration. I’m really glad I have your reviews to look for and see what’s worth my time and money!
