Silent Treatment

Wet ‘n’ Wild Silent Treatment Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad ($2.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, permanent set of neutral shades–mauve, peach, deep taupe, light taupe–housed in a slim, plastic palette. They were not the worst eyeshadows I’ve used, but there was a dryness present through the formula that made them harder to use without a good primer underneath.

Wet ‘n’ Wild reformulated their eyeshadow trios and palettes with the trios expanding to quads and some shades getting changed. I did not keep most of the previously-released trios and palettes from the brand as mine, but when I compared 2018’s formula to the prior one (and mine are likely five or more years old), the previous formula was far better for their shimmers–slightly more slip, creamier in feel, and typically more pigmented and true-to-color on the lid. I think the mattes, overall, are improved as they are more blendable and pigmented on the lid.

Silent Treatment #1

Silent Treatment #1 is a light-medium mauve with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a velvety consistency that felt a smidgen powdery but was a bit denser and applied exceptionally to bare skin. It wore well for seven hours before fading on me.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to be "powerfully pigmented" with a "butter-soft" texture that "glides on like a dream." The majority of the eyeshadows are on the drier side, sometimes feeling loosely pressed and other times more chalk-like and truly dry to the point where a primer became a must for getting good adhesion and wear out of the formula. Most of the matte shades were quite pigmented, and I found they actually applied better to bare skin than some of the shimmers, which often appeared faded and muted in practice compared to how they appeared in the pan. The pigmentation varied from decent to mostly opaque depending on the shade, and the wear was typically between five and seven hours on me.

Silent Treatment #2

Silent Treatment #2 is a soft, light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a subtle, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation, but it was incredibly dusty and thin, which resulted in the product sheering out on the skin very easily, even over primer. This shade wore well for five hours on me.

Silent Treatment #3

Silent Treatment #3 is a deep taupe brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and fine, satin shimmer. You could easily see the pearl in the pan, but in practice, it was more like a semi-matte shade as most of the shimmer particles got lost between the pan, brush, and my lids. The texture was drier and more prone to sheering out, but it was buildable from medium coverage to mostly opaque (and opaque if used over primer). It lasted for six and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Silent Treatment #4

Silent Treatment #4 is a light-medium taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was on the drier side but did not sheer out too readily on the lid. It did, however, look noticeably lighter applied than in the pan and started to fade after six hours of wear.

I’ve also got the original Silent Treatment and even looking at this version in your sneak peak a week or so back, it looked like the original 3 were not up to the standard of that old one and that 4th shade (the transition one) looks sort of ugly to my eyes and also like it doesn’t quite fit with the other 3.

Yeah, it is a bit of a mixed bag! They aren’t amazing at all, but some of the new ones are decent/good and others are total misses!

I’m really wishing they’d have left the previous formula alone, as they have ruined Silent Treatment. I do still have the OG trio here, but I never think to take it out and use it, sadly. The OG shimmery lighter taupe is one of the prettiest taupes I’ve ever used!

It *may* have to do with my accumulation of other equally nice or better taupes, like MAC Satin Taupe, MUFE Pink Granite and Nars Calisto. And so I just sadly forgot all about it. I have a tendency to gravitate towards pinky or purplish taupes, it would seem.

The taupe shade (at least in the old trio) is also really similar to Cargo’s Yukon and Nars Lhasa. I just bought two of the new 10 pan palettes (Rose in the Air and Not a Basic Peach) and the pigmentation was really nice.

What’s up with shimmer shadows these days? They used to be reliably good, even at the drugstore, but now more and more brands release formulas that are extremely disappointing if not applied with a finger or wet brush.

Disappointing palette, but you achieved such a nice eye look with it!

The shades are easily dupable from my collection. The shade I like best in this palette is Silent Treatment #1, which has Malt, one of my favorite MAC eyeshadows, as the top dupe. (Note: Although Malt got a rather low rating on Temptalia, itโ€™s my #1 favorite transition shade.)

I have all the previous ones I think Iโ€™ll be skipping these then although I love the colors. Comfort zone, the original is much better and I got back up of it I find it beautiful!

That was one of the shades in the original Silent Treatment 3 pan palette. Itโ€™s a beautiful color! Go to Walgreens or CVS – many stores still have the old trios in their displays. You can probably find one if you donโ€™t already own the original.
