Wet n' Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette Don't Steal My Thunder Review

Getting excited for the holidays? I am :O) All the parties, food and glittery makeup make me giddy inside. 

Speaking of holiday makeup, I'm all about smoky eyes -- again! -- and one of the best smoky eyeshadow palettes from cheap makeup is Wet n' Wild ColorIcon Trio in "Don't Steal My Thunder." The palette's charcoal-gray-frost trio blends beautifully together, and its hint of shimmer adds sexy glamor.  However, Wet n' Wild makeup is such a cheap makeup brand that it sometimes lacks quality.

Wet n' Wild ColorIcon Trio Eyeshadow Palette Review

(Colors in "Don't Steal My Thunder")

Cost: $2.99

Quality and Performance (4 points total. 40% weight.)

  • Shadow applied reluctantly onto skin. The powder formula wasn't absolutely smooth, but did not give me too much trouble either.
  • Shadow flaked a little, but did not cause too much mess.
  • Shadow felt light, and did not irritate skin.
  • Overall, quality is so-so.

Color and Pigmentation (3 points total. 30% weight.)

  • HIGHLY pigmented. Colors looked really stunning.
  • Each of the three colors looked beautiful individually, but also blended well together.
  • For smoky colors, this Wet n' Wild eyeshadow palette is a win!  
+3 points

Beautiful colors, aren't they?

They look good both in box, and out.



Lasting Power (2 points total. 20% weight.)

  • Shadow lasted a while, at least a few hours.
  • I think it would have lasted all day if I wore a shadow base.
+2 points  

Packaging (1 point total. 10% weight.)

  • Wonderful flip top packaging. Very convenient.
  • Did not skimp on product -- just enough shadow for each color.
  • Also, each color had (placement) directions, like eyelid and crease, etched in -- super convenient for a newbie.
  • However, I did not enjoy using neither sponge nor brush. (Palette came with free sponge and brush head.)
  • Sponge was too wide and brush did not apply well.

Overall Rating




Although 7.5 is not the highest score, but for $2.99, I think I will buy Wet n' Wild Steam My Thunder again. Plus, it's fun to wear :O)

With directions, it was easy to figure out which color goes where.

Really enjoyed all three colors.

These smoky shades are definitely more for the evenings.

Because I emphasized my eyes, the rest of the face wore neutrals.
