Wet 'n' Wild To Muse and Carouse Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio Quick Review, Photos, Swatches

Wet 'n' Wild To Muse and Carouse Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio
Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) contains a peachy-orange, medium-dark brown, and light-medium blue all with matte finishes. Everything was powdery, and two of the shades were also chalky. I had major wear issues with these, as the eyeshadows on their own (not to sound like a broken record, but Wet ‘n’ Wild advertises the Color Icon formula as long-wearing and highly-pigmented, which is why the poor wear is such a problem) disappear in their entirety after five hours of wear–they were half-gone after three hours. It was like my lids were hungry for eyeshadow. Over a primer (I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance), they were slightly better–six hours with a fair amount of fading. Over a creamy base (I used NYX Milk), they performed the best and wore fairly well for seven hours, but you’ll be packing on the eyeshadow to get the color payoff to be true-to-pan.

To Muse and Carouse #1 is a light-medium orange with a matte finish. It’s chalky and somewhat powdery, but it had so-so color payoff. See comparison swatches.

To Muse and Carouse #2 is a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with a mostly matte finish. It was very powdery. See comparison swatches.

To Muse and Carouse #3 is a light-medium blue with a matte finish. It was incredibly sheer, powdery, and chalky. See comparison swatches.

* Please note: This is a quick review, so while I’ve still pulled dupes, I just haven’t gone through them one-by-one and broken out how they differ.

Not going to lie – so bummed this is a total fail. This is the palette from this collection I was interested in, but I’ll save my money.

I’m glad I didn’t pick up any of these trios! They all seem to be very disappointing and not like Wet ‘n’ Wild’s other amazing shadows at all!

This is one of the two trios I have from this collection and I actually really like it! It’s really easy to make work so I don’t necessarily think you should skip it if you like the colors!

I’m very easily satisfied when it comes to eyeshadow and use many cheap ones, but all these palettes look just awful. Wouldn’t bother even if they were free!
