Wet N Wild Color Icon Customized Neutrals & Colors Palette

It is rare for me to purchase eyeshadow at the drugstore, but I've been really excited to try many of the Wet N Wild Color Icon Shadows since they have received so much praise. One of the reasons I hate drugstore eye shadows is the packaging... So I found a solution and de-potted the pans to create a custom palette!

Using 6 Wet N Wild Color Icon Trios and one Eyeshadow Collection I created a neutrals and colors palette I can't wait to start using!

The WnW Trios and Eyeshadow Collections I used to create this are:

-I'm Getting Sunburned 334
-Silent Treatment 335
-Walking On Eggshells 380 B
-Sweet As Candy 381 B
-Cool As A Cucumber 382 B
-Knock On Wood 383 B
-Don't Steal My Thunder 385 B
-Comfort Zone 780

By glancing at the pans you might think there are several duplicate colors, but when swatched, you'll find subtle variations that make each color special and unique.


I owned the Walking On Eggshells for several months and loved it, and based on my swatching experience I think I will love most, if not all of the colors as much as the ones from my first trio.

What do you think of WnW shadows? Do you hate the packaging too? Or is it worth putting up with for such a great product?

P.S. the photos above were taken with my new camera... in manual mode! I am still learning but hopefully my photos will be improved over time. I'm learning as I've never had a DSLR camera before - and have no photography experience outside of point and shoot cameras. Wish me luck!
