Wet n Wild Coloricon 3 Palette Eye Shadows

I know what you're thinking. More Jessica? Do you really need more Wet n Wild eye shadows?

No but I bought them anyways.

I snagged all four neutral palettes that had. These are .99 at Walgreens right now so that makes each eye shadow only .33 which is the cheapest I've ever seen.

Edit- I think I may have confused a few people. I didn't get these palettes for .33 (although I wish I did). The palettes are .99 right now so I divided it by how many eye shadows come inside making each individual eye shadow .33. See what I mean? Sorry for the confusion!

If you notice in the 8 Coloricon palettes I reviewed last week, the order of eye shadows are different. It's first brow bone, crease, and then eyelid for the 3 palettes. The crease eye shadows are also smaller than the rest. It's not a big deal for me but I thought I'd point it out. 

334 I'm Getting Sunburned

The brow bone is a shimmery lilac pink, the crease is a deep brown, and the eyelid is a beautiful gold. The pictures don't give this justice. One of my favorite things about Wet n Wild palettes are the colors actually work together. Separately each shadow is nice but together they are even better. 

335 Silent Treatment

The brow bone is a very sheer opal pink, the crease is a deep brown, and the eyelid is a silver purple. The crease shadow in this one was chalky but the other two colors were wonderful. It's not too bad when you wear it with primer.

381B Sweet As Candy

The brow bone is a perfect white, the crease is a light taupe, and the eyelid is baby pink. These colors were my favorite and great for spring and summer. It's hard to find a really nice white brow bone shadow that doesn't come off as chalky and I think this is a real winner. 

380 Walking On Eggshells

The brow bone is off white, the crease is another gorgeous taupe, and the eye lid is a light pink. This is another favorite and completely wearable during the day and night.

You've probably noticed that all the palettes look really similar to each other but none of these eye shadows are the same. In fact every single one of them are indeed different. 

I swatched the eye shadows below so you can compare them.

Wet n Wild is my number one go to for affordable eye shadows. None of these palettes have let me down and the price is unbeatable.

To get the most wear and color payoff I always recommend using an eye primer.

Do you own any of the Wet n Wild Coloricon 3 Palette Eye Shadows? What are your thoughts?
