Today I will be reviewing the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette that I’d been eyeing for years! It’s one of the most affordable yet decent quality eyeshadow palettes available in the market. It’s versatile, pigmented and can be used to create a lot of eye looks (check out mine at the end)!
Little Background: The Wet N Wild comfort zone palette earlier came in an 8 shadow palette; missing the 2 transition shades that are included in this new palette.
The older one apparently had some shadows which were more pigmented than the new one. However, the inclusion of transition shades makes this palette wholesome.
Price: INR 499 for 10 shades; 8.5g.
Availability: You can buy this palette on Nykaa. It’s often on sale and can be found or around INR 250.
Edit: Wet N Wild is no longer cruelty-free.
My Thoughts on Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette
I bought the comfort zone eyeshadow palette a few months ago when it was on sale but it took me a while to start playing with it.
I wanted some greens in my collection but didn’t want to spend a lot of money so this comfort zone palette was the best choice. The colour scheme is pretty good and it has a perfect mix of matte and metallic eyeshadows.
It comes in a small, black plastic pan that has a transparent lid. The packaging is rather cheap and doesn’t look durable.
But we’re paying 500 bucks for 10 decent quality shades, remember? So I have no complaints! There are no shade names mentioned anywhere and the back of the palette has all the instructions and product description.
Texture & Smell
The shadows are powdery so there’s a lot of fallout. They’re not like your creamy shadows that just melt; both mattes and shimmers are slightly dry.
I really love the Colourpop Yes Please palette because of the creaminess of the shadows, including the matte shades and very little fallout. It’s the perfect warm-toned eyeshadow palette from the drugstore!
The Wet N Wild Comfort Zone eyeshadows don’t have any weird, chemically or sweet smell to them which is a great thing.
The warm-toned Comfort Zone eyeshadow palette has a total of 10 shadows with 2 matte transition shades and 8 shimmer shades. They’re not named so I’ve put up a number for reference. The lighter shimmer shades are slightly more soft than the darker ones, in general.
Shade #1: A matte, medium orange shade with warm undertones. Really pretty transition shade to bring out the warmth. It shows up on brown skin.
Shade #2: A matte, dark brown with warm, red undertones. Slightly patchy but blends out well after some effort.
Shade #3: Light champagne shade. Takes some time to build up the intensity.
Shade #4: A light green shade with a pearly sheen.
Shade #5: Dirt-gold shade with metallic undertones.
Shade #6: Golden brown with warm undertones and pearly sheen which was rather soft and blendable.
Comfort Zone Shade #7: A peachy-shimmer shadow with a frosted sheen.
Shade #8: Gorgeous shimmery shade with green-to-teal shift and warm, red-brown undertone. Comes off to be subtle on lids but looks beautiful. My most favourite shade from the palette!
Shade #9: Deep warm-toned brown which was slightly less dry. Very pigmented and applies well.
Shade #10: A sooty blackened olive green-brown. Highly pigmented but difficult to blend out due to its dryness.
Since the shadows are dry, they cause a lot of fallout on application. I’ve made it a point to do my eyes first so that I can clean all the mess and do my face.
Also, I tap out the excess every time I dip my brush into it (which is slightly annoying considering you have to go in several times.) I mainly pack the shimmer shades using my finger as that gives the best payoff. Due to the dryness, the blending requires a little more-than-normal effort.
However, this doesn’t affect their pigmentation. All the shades show up really well on my tanned skin. They stay for a decent 6-7 hours with some fading after the 5th hour. I don’t use an eye primer specifically but prep my lids with a concealer.
If you’re looking for a palette that’s even more budget-friendly, check the Wet N Wild Eyeshadow in Petalette.
I didn’t put any kind of pressure or pressed the shadows hard while swatching it. So you can see they’re all decently pigment. These swatches are completely unedited and natural.
As you can see, the #2 matte shadow applied a little patchy while the #1 shade is pretty close to the skin tone, hence an amazing transition shade.
The wet n wild comfort zone palette is very versatile and you can create a variety of looks with this. I created around 7 eye looks using this palette just to show this is all you need! While creating multiple eye makeup looks, I tried to make sure that I use up all the shadows.
Here, I’m channelling the green vibes of this palette and I used the right side of the palette.
Brown Smokey Eye Makeup I created using the left side of the palette.
If you’re a beginner who wants to try an eyeshadow palette that won’t create a big hole in your pocket, definitely buy the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette. You get a ton of different colours for just 500 bucks!
But beware of the fallout and it’d better if you do your eyes first and then proceed with the rest of your face.
Edit: Wet N Wild is no longer cruelty-free.
