Wet 'n' Wild Three's a Party Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio
Wet ‘n’ Wild Three’s a Party Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Three’s a Party Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) contains a white, red, and black. Of all the trios, this is the only one I’d really consider getting, which is due to the red eyeshadow, as it is difficult to find red eyeshadows, period, let alone at this price point. The red and black eyeshadows are also better than the majority of the collection, as they did not fade as quickly and were much more pigmented. I experienced noticeable fading without a primer (remember, Wet ‘n’ Wild touts these as highly pigmented and long-wearing!) after four hours. Over a primer, I was able to get to seven hours overall before it started looking faded.

Three’s a Party #1 is a pale, matte white. It’s chalky, powdery, and sheer; fades quickly and easily on the lid without a tacky base (try NYX Milk). LORAC White, MAC Chill, Sugarpill Tako, Make Up For Ever #00, and Inglot #373 are all matte whites that are similar (almost all perform better, though). NYX Milk is a cream product. See comparison swatches.

Three’s a Party #2 is a warm, medium-dark red with orange undertones and a satiny finish. It was very powdery, though it was more pigmented than other shades have been. It really needs a white base for true-to-pan color. Fyrinnae Hitched is warmer, more sheen. Illamasqua Daemon is similar in color. Sugarpill Asylum is more shimmery. Sugarpill Love+ is redder, brighter. Inglot #366 is slightly brighter. See comparison swatches.

Three’s a Party #3 is a charcoal black with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was nicely pigmented, but it had a slightly drier texture that made it harder to blend out on the lid. Here are several other matte black eyeshadows to consider: theBalm Serious , Sugarpill Bulletproof, Urban Decay Blackout, Milani Pitch Black, bareMinerals Lights Down, that are all matte and black. See comparison swatches.

  1. I skipped on this quad mainly because I’m not talented enough to make it work. That white scares me. It screams CHALKY!

  2. It really is so disappointing to see WnW continuing to “strike out” when they’d done such a great job in recent years of making a whole new reputation for themselves. I’m so glad I’ve got some of their “winners” from the last 5 or so years.

    Even Wet n Wild can put out a better black eyeshadow in a palette (for $2.99!) than MAC. It’s well past time that they do something about Carbon.

  4. Wet n Wild was doing well with their shadows for while, but too bad about these.

  5. … yeah, definitely not getting that.

    Christine, the new ones just came out for fall. Could you please, if you have time, review them?
    Two are named, Zero Dark Flirty and Enlisting for Beauty. thanks

    All I see when I look at this trio is Nebraska Huskers colors, lol.
