Although I love my high end eye shadows, I am always on the hunt for cheaper alternatives! One of my favourite youtube guru emilynoel83 did a drugstore dupe video on MAC shadows, and there are a surprising amount of dupes that exist that’s by Wet n’ Wild. She also mentioned their quality are really good. Bliss No.9 also did a review on a Wet n’ Wild palette, and noted how great the qualities are. So I decided to pick one up myself. I was going to pick up a palette of 8 shadows, but they were not sold at the Walmart I went to. Fortunately they had their 3 shadow palettes on sale for $2.97. I picked up the palette called “Walking on Eggshells”. It comes with a pearly white, with slight yellow undertone shade for browbone; a slightly shimmery taupe colour for crease, and a pearly pinkish shade for the eyelid.
According to emilynoel83, all these 3 shades are dupes for MAC shadows! How exciting is that? A $3 palette has dupes for 3 MAC shadows?! She said the browbone shade is a dupe for Shroom, crease shade for Cork, and eyelid shade for Naked Lunch. I don’t own any of these MAC shades so I can’t do a comparison myself, but from what she swatched in the video, they look pretty darn close. I think the crease shade is slightly more shimmery than Cork, but I will gladly take the difference given the huge difference in price tag.
On this palette itself, all 3 shades are extremely pigmented. One swipe yields a lot of colour payoff. The shades are all buttery smooth, and glide on easily.
I wore these shades with no eye primer today, and applied them using the brushes that came with the trio. They started creasing after around 5-6 hours, which included watching an outdoor soccer game and melting in the sun, and a nap. For this price tag, I think that’s pretty good, especially when it was worn without primer.
Overall I am extremely satisfied with this trio! If you are looking for a budget buy for an easy everyday look, I highly suggest getting this palette!
