An All Matte Eyeshadow Palette for the Price of a Latte

Wet ‘n’ Wild Drinking a Glass of Shine Eyeshadow Palette ($4.99 for 0.30 oz.) contains eight matte eyeshadows ranging in color from white to black. This palette may be better known as I

The first shade is a soft white with a matte finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft. Wet ‘n’ Wild Shimmer the Night Away is shimmery. MAC Crystal Avalanche is also shimmery. Bobbi Brown White is very comparable. bareMinerals Cheers is frosted. bareMinerals Cumuls is starker. Inglot #373 is whiter.

The second shade is a darkened seafoam green with a matte finish. This shade had decent color payoff, but it is so soft that it has a tendency to blend away a bit. When patted on, it delivers a lot more payoff and has a less faded appearance (see photos below). Inglot #345 is lighter. Make Up For Ever #53 is much darker. Sugarpill Mochi is bluer. MAC Aqua is lighter.

The third shade is a light-medium sky blue with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and it was soft and smooth without being powdery. Cinderella Royal is darker. Milani Olympian Blue is also darker, brighter. Maybelline Tenacious Teal is a bit darker and shimmery (and a cream). MAC Blue Candy is a touch brighter. Make Up For Ever #118 is a little lighter and brighter.

The fourth shade is a medium-dark purple with subtle red undertones. This shade had decent to good color payoff, but it was very powdery. This shade was the most powdery of the eight. MAC Plush is darker and shimmery. Milani Primary is shimmery. MAC Shock-a-holic is redder. Inglot #379 is bluer-toned.

The fifth shade is a soft, creamy beige with a matte finish. One of the best shades in the palette, this had a lovely soft, smooth texture that wasn’t powdery with excellent color payoff. Urban Decay Anonymous is similar. theBalm Adagio is very close. MAC Brule is comparable. MAC Vanilla is warmer, lighter.

The sixth shade is a faded orange with a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation, and it was the driest of the eight–surprisingly dry to the point where it was a bit stiff (which was why the color payoff wasn’t great). NARS Self Portrait 3 is darker, richer. NARS Ramatuelle is a bit more orange.

The seventh shade is a medium-dark brown with subtle red undertones and a matte finish. This shade was very sheer and a bit stiff to work with. It was the worst performing out of the eight. theBalm Presto is similar. NARS Surabaya is more orange-toned. Bobbi Brown Cocoa Berry is more burgundy. MAC Embark is darker.

The eighth shade is a dark black with a matte finish. The texture of this one was slightly dry, which resulted in just so-so color payoff. Wet ‘n’ Wild Shimmer the Night Away is comparable. MAC Carbon is also similar.

Overall, this is palette is a mixed bag, as some of the shades were powdery and two were a bit dry/stiff (and those two were also significantly sheerer than the rest). None of the shades were so powdery that they would blend away to nothing or faded away quickly, but I recommend patting, not sweeping, them on. A little over half of the matte shades in this palette are of the softer variety, so they deposited pigment well, blended easily, but did have some fall out during application. The drier mattes have less fall out but were harder to blend and pick up pigment from.

When I wore the eyeshadows from this palette, they lasted fairly well over eight hours, but there was some fading along the edges that became noticeable after seven hours (without a primer). Β Over a primer, the fading deferred for an hour–only looking a bit faded with the green and purple shades after eight hours.

I LOVE the new feature of having a tutorial at the end! I have both this and the original I <3 Matte palette. I haven't had a chance to play with the new palette but the original is lovely to work with. Sad that this one seems to be of poorer quality.

While the palette itself looks decent, I must say Christine, THANK YOU SO MUCH for incorporating a look into the post!! I enjoy your reviews and swatches tremendously, but seeing an actual look is awesome! I often see palettes and while the swatches themselves are great to see, seeing an actual look is a BIG help. It helps me visualize how the palette can actually be used (in terms of color combos) and imagine the colors on myself. Thank you soooo much for this! While I’m sure it won’t always be possible for you to do this, please know it’s GREATLY appreciated πŸ™‚

Love that you chose the colourful side to do your look! Strangely, it looks for the swatches above the more neutral side had bigger problems as far as payoff. The red brown and black look terrible. It’s great to come away from a C+ palette with such a pretty look. I’m really enjoying your look tutorials πŸ˜€

That’s what I heard – I couldn’t believe this was the same palette, so I really wonder if the quality changed somewhere along the way.

I have this same palette (not the older one, but this exact one), and I find it amazing. Not a single shade disappointed me. It’s weird how one person can find a product amazing, and another person can find the same product to be not that great.

It seems like the quality of this one is different, period – I was looking forward to swatching it, but it did not want to be swatched! πŸ™

I think you’re right. I have the old one but two shadows broke out which is why I was happy these were repromoted. The brown was SUPER pigmented and now is just terrible. It’s a huge let down.

Wow the quality of these does seem to have changed I have a couple from the first release and they are super pigmented glad I have those but such a bummer for those thinking they would have a second chance at grabbing this one.

I’m so tempted to buy this, although of all the shades I’m drawn to, I have complete dupes. The swatches actually look fine, IMO, but I’m sure using a primer (or even a base) would help them even more. Still, for $5, I don’t expect perfection, and a putting in a bit of effort with a primer is worth it.

The look you made with the palette is very nice! I didn’t notice before that the wet n wild palettes are made in China, I wonder if they are comparable to those 88 colors palettes… Does anyone know? Thanks Christine!

I used to love the 6 pan palettes, and I think they ruined a good thing. The only 8 pan that seems worth it is Comfort Zone. A few of the trio’s are good, too.

I was at a Walgreens earlier and looked for the new palettes, but only found the older ones. I don’t think I’d have been tempted by this one, as I’m not into mattes, but I do still want that one you swatched yesterday, and possibly Shimmer the Night Away!

I just love your new approach on your looks! I’ve admired them for so long. I know, shuffle shuffle, I don’t post often…:( Quite a few of them I’ve stared at for a long time and then tried to replicate them. You’ve taught me so much about color freedom that I’ve really grown out of my ‘box’. Now this approach has me so excited! Oh and because of many of your looks I fell in love with Spark of Envy by Tarantino. Then her 40off hit at Sephora and I was all over it. My fav is the 5 shadow palette with the greens. OMG! This is a big deal since I was a strictly bareMinerals gal having over 600 jars of BE. It thrills me that you love the new Ready line too! I do also, owning 18 of them in just a year. I loved your wedding pics too. I about fell off my chair on your wedding bouquet. It’s amazingly gorgeous. I would get married again just for that, haha. Anyway, this long post should make up for many I don’t post in. Thank you for all that you do!

I have to say I’m in love with the Step-by-Step Guides you do now. It’s great to not only see how a product performs on the eyes, but also an example of how to use it. Keep up the good work.

You are super talented, Christine – you came up with a lovely look in spite of this palette’s particular flaws. You simply make anything work! Thank you for your honest reviews – if I was only guided by the looks you create, I’d probably fall for EVERYTHING.

You should do more of the step by step photos!! they are so helpful for newbies like me. I always wondered how you made so many different colours show up individually on your eyes… I usually end up making it way too muddy. Keep up the good work!!

I am so overjoyed I found you!! This is the most informative cosmetic sight I have personally seen!! Thank you thank you for your hard work, and for this tutorial on my favorite eyeshadow brand in all the world!! I want this palette so bad, but here in Canada is almost impossible to get all the wonderful make up from WnW!! Do you know where I can order it?

Aww, thank you Veronica! πŸ™‚

Honestly, the best place is eBay, because they’re hard to track down in-stores! As far as I know, they’re not going to be sold online πŸ™
