Wet ‘n’ Wild Enter a New Realm Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Enter a New Realm Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.17 oz.) is such a visually striking palette! It’s a very classic color combination (generally speaking), but it looks stunning. It’s silver, black, and red. And I really do mean red–it’s not a red masquerading as fuchsia or pinky-red or coppery-red. It looks candy apple red in the pan.

The first shade in the palette is a medium-dark silver with a metallic finish. It’s definitely similar in color to Inglot #448. The color payoff is decent to good, but the texture makes it so it doesn’t come together as well so the appearance is less than smooth (which gives it slightly uneven color payoff).

In the middle, there’s a mostly matte black with brown undertones. It’s not the worst I’ve tried (and Wet ‘n’ Wild has had worse mattes in their palettes), but it’s not stellar. It has a drier texture so the pigmentation suffers; it’s not as opaque or as dense as I’d like. It performs better on the eye when it comes to pigmentation but did find there was slight fading after six hours (even over a primer). Not quite as bad as Wet ‘n’ Wild Fly me to the Moon but not as lovely as Make Up For Ever #4.

The final shade is is an orange-based red with a satiny shimmer-sheen. It has decent color payoff, though not as vibrant swatched as it appears in the pan. Sugarpill Love+ is more intense (though matte). Make Up For Ever #99 is matte, and more intense, while Make Up For Ever #158 is matte and more intense but also darker. Inglot #366 is similar but seems more orange. For $3, it’s a rather impressive red from a drugstore brand when many higher end brands do not have reds in their lines.

Do you happen to know an exact release date on these?
Because I have seen many reviews and advertisements online but I’ve tried most of my local drugstores and I never seem to find them.

Why is it that red is such a rare colour to come across, and why are mattes so hard to make decent? I love mattes the most, but man, can they be tricky.

One of the ingredients that has to be used in red eyeshadows causes allergic reactions for a lot of people, which is why most companies don’t risk making red shadows.

I’ve always wanted to ask this question to you. You rate certain brands like Wet and Wild high, like B+, and sometimes MAC, Inglot, Urban Decay, etc., pricier, get the same grade. In terms of long-lasting, feel of the powder/cream shadows, heck, even richness of color, you compare say, drugstore to brand-name as dupes and sometimes they have the same grade. Are they really -just- as good?

The grade means the same no matter the brand or price. So if it’s a B+ here, then that’s the same as a B+ given to MAC or UD. You would have to look at the specific breakdown, e.g. there may be problems in pigmentation but not in texture – to see how they stack up, but the rating system doesn’t take into account price at all.

wow, that red is nice! this trio reminds me of a baked MAC trio I have from a while back I dont even remember the name of atm. But I’ve never found any red (pressed) to top Love+!!!

I’ve been trying to hunt down this trio for awhile now. It’s ridiculously hard to get a hold of. It’s already way over priced on ebay too. I wish WnW would do larger runs of their limited edition products, because it is so frustrating trying to find them.

Hmm, I haven’t done a red eyeshadow look before, not sure if I can pull it off.

The palette is quite striking at first glance. Great color combo.

I like the silver the most, but I have a lot of silver shadows already. XD

i’d wear red eyeshadow everyday haha 😀 but that one isn’t bright enough for me >:] never had red tho but i like the way i look w/ a very bright matte fuchsia shadow 😀

Hi, I love the DReam Weaver collection, a couple of monmths agi they were so hard to find and now basically they are non existent in stores in my area at least. Do you happen to know other than the New Nail Polish Holiday Collection, if Wet N Wild will be releasing any new eyeshadow collections?
