Usually when I use those two words in the same sentence it refers to the various “gems” that can be found on the pages of http://www.peopleofwalmart.com . This one, however, truly earns this title.
After reading various reviews on many sites, including Temptalia and Makeupalley, I decided to hunt down this little treasure. The “pot of gold” I’m alluding to is the Comfort Zone palette by Wet n’ Wild. Yup, THAT Wet n’ Wild, notoriously known in the 90s for frosty lipstick and chalky shadows. Well, they’ve definitely stepped up their game!
Primed, indoor light Primed, natural light
The 8 shadows in this palette are incredible! Not only are the pigmentation and colour payoff UNREAL, I swear a bunch of them are exact dupes (quality and colour) for MAC shadows. Oh yeah, and this set set me back $4.64 for EIGHT shadows. I almost felt like I was stealing…almost 😛
So, on the top of the left side we have a yellow beige labelled “brow” ( for you novice ladies 🙂 ) which really reminds me of MAC Rice Paper. Next, we have a warm peachy pink labbelled “eyelid”….*cough* MAC Jest *cough*. This is followed by a warm bronze shadow labelled “crease”. No joke , this is an exact dupe for MAC Bronze, which I have gone through 674535 of. The last one in this column is labelled “definer” and really, really reminds me of MAC Beautymarked, though a bit lighter.
On the right, up top, we have a grey shadow with a pearlescent sheen labelled “browbone”. I find this one to be thisclose to MAC Vex. Below that is a warm green labelled “eyelid”. This is probably the only one that I couldn’t find a dupe for. Still very pretty, though. Right underneath we have a grey with a gold shimmer, which is meant for the crease. OK, I lied. I don’t have a dupe for this one either 😛 . And the last one in this column is a brown with a greenish duo-tone. Very, VERY reminiscent of MAC Club. Word of caution, the “definer” shadows are SUPER pigmented and are kinda dark to blend out in the crease. Let’s just say I MAY be speaking from experience 😛
So there you have it. That’s what I call beauty on a dime…
And I have a funny feeling that the gems AT Walmart won’t be sporting the awesomeness OF this Walmart gem 😛
Question: would you be interested in seeing a look using this palette?
