Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Trio Review – Knock On Wood

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Trio

Weekly Cheap Secret:

It isn’t a secret that I love Wet n Wild eyeshadows. The brand gets my vote for best drugstore eyeshadow ever. Here’s my review and swatches of Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio in 383B Knock On Wood, a shimmery trio of mauve shades.

Wet n Wild Knock on Wood swatches

This trio includes the following colors:

Browbone” – A light dusty, reddish mauve pearl. I find that this shade applies evenly and blends easily. But, I don’t really like to use it on the brow bone because it makes me look like I just had my brows waxed.

Crease” – A medium brown with plum shimmer. I love this shade. It’s my favorite out of the trio. It’s a rich, pigmented color. Totally worth the $2.99 of this trio.

Eyelid” – This is a “red plum” or “cranberry” shimmer. It’s a beautiful color but I find that it doesn’t really work with my complexion unless I wear it with warmer shades like gold or honey and use it in the crease.

Below you’ll find a look that I did using only this shadow trio, mascara and false lashes. I followed the compact’s directions and lined my bottom lash line with the “eyelid” shade. And here’s a vintage 1920’s look that I did with this trio.

I think this trio is a great deal. However, I think that mauve/pink shades do not look good on me when used as eyeshadow. I feel the color makes my eyes look tired and bloodshot. BUT these shades can really look great on certain cooler toned complexions with blue eyes. I also think that these shades would look wonderful with hazel or green eyes. And the cranberry shades look good with cool complexions. I think these colors look the most vivid on light to medium complexions.

These trios retail for under $3 and are available at drugstores. Find out more info at Wet n Wild.

    1. You do. I’m making it my goal to collect all of the WnW eyeshadows. I just realized that I don’t have Walking on Eggshells and that trio looks like something I’d wear daily.

        1. I have all 3 of the 8-pans. Comfort Zone is my favorite. I love all of the shades.
          My favorite WnW shadows are the 6 pan because I love the mattes so much. I’ve already been through a few Greeds and Vanities.
