New Wet n’ Wild Eyeshadow Trios

The lovely G of Nouveau Cheap did a post recently on the new Wet n’ Wild Coloricon eye shadow trios. She also mentioned how Wet n’ Wild had a sale going on at Walgreens today, 50% off. She’s got the best sales! I saw I Dream of Greenie and I’m Feeling Retro and I knew I had to have them. Wet n’ Wild must be really popular by me, because there was only one of each of the new colors left! I picked these up for $1.50 each.

I had to get I’m Feeling Retro because it just screamed Phyrra at me. The colors match my site pretty well! I also liked I Dream of Greenie for that yellow-green shade. I’m glad I snagged these two!

I’m Feeling Retro
Browbone – Pearly White
Crease – pearly mid-tone peacock blue
Eyelid – pearly fuchsia

I Dream of Greenie
Browbone – pale pearly silvery mint
Crease – pearly mid-tone grass green
Eyelid – velvety yellow-green with silver sparkle

The standout color among these 6 shades is the Eyelid shade from I Dream of Greenie. It’s an amazing velvety yellow-green shade. It’s gorgeous. It reminds me a bit of Aromaleigh Erline.

The eyelid shade from I’m Feeling Retro is really gorgeous too. It reminds me of MAC’s Pink Pearl pigment or of MAC’s Stars & Rockets eye shadow. It’s a color I always enjoy having around and I really like it paired up with the mid-tone peacock blue color.

The two highlighters are both really nice. They work well with the shades in their trio. The mid-tone crease shadows are nice and compliment the lid shades. The green especially makes for a perfect contour shade.

At $1.50 for 3 coordinating eye shadows (net weight .12 oz), they’re a steal. Color me impressed with these new offerings from Wet n’ Wild. Between the 6 eye shadow palettes, these color trios and the black creme liner, I like what the new Wet n’ Wild has to offer!

What do you think of the new eyeshadow trios from Wet n’ Wild?

      I’m getting Retro next time. But, surely this week since Wags has them on sale. :)

      • Phyrra

        Yes they’re on sale $1.50 for 3 shadows is a STEAL! Definitely go this week.

    • UneLuneBleue

      Wow, I’ve not made it beyond Wet n’ Wild nail polishes since high school, but these shadows look pretty awesome! If you hadn’t said they were Wn’W, I never would have guessed, I definitely would have thought they were from a ‘higher end’ brand. I’ll have to go check these out, guess I’m making a Walgreens run.

      • Phyrra

        I definitely recommend their Black Creme liner if you like gel eyeliners.

        Their 6 eye shadow palettes are really nice, too, and now so are these trios.

      GAh..wish Wet N WIld was available in the UK. It seems they set up a uk website and then when they did their relaunch, they havent bothered with the UK.

      • Phyrra

        Aww I hope they fix that soon!

      • http://www.lipsticksandlightsabers.com Anastasia

        You can get SOME Wet ‘n’ Wild in the UK, in very large Tesco stores, but it sucks. None of it is the cult products, it’s things like weird brown eyeliner pencils.

        • Phyrra

          How bizarre!

        • http://littlemissmetamorph.blogspot.com kristen

          Yeah its all their old range…same stuff you can buy in those discount makeup websites with old old old (i dont know how they can sell it) makeup

    • Emily

      I picked up I Dream of Greenie and one of the new nail polishes that were on display with this collection called Teal of Fortune(teal glittery goodness).

      • Phyrra

        Oooh nice!

    • Ter G.

      I picked up all but the green trio today ( I just can’t get greens to work for me ). What a steal at regular price…but 1/2 off? Crazy! Love the dupes you found!

      • Phyrra

        Yeah the price is just amazing!

    • Marcey

      Love the crease color in both palettes! I wish I lived in the US where I had access to Walgreens :-(

      • Phyrra

        The crease colors are nice :)

    • Jessi

      When I saw I’m Feeling Retro on G’s blog I immediately thought of you. I was going to comment about it, but I thought I might seem like a creeper. But I guess I was right about you liking it.

      I’m excited that a drugstore brand, and especially one so inexpensive, is releasing such unusual colors. Well, unusual for a drugstore. Thanks so much for the swatches, I now know that need them both!

      • Phyrra

        Haha, definitely like it! Me too. It’s really neat.

    • http://www.lipsticksandlightsabers.com Anastasia

      I need that chartreuse!

      • Phyrra

        Yes yes yes!

    • Shey

      the colors look so vibrant and bright! Awww….

      • Phyrra

        They are! They’re nicely pigmented.

      “I had to get I’m Feeling Retro because it just screamed Phyrra at me.”

      Funny, I thought the exact same thing when I saw G’s sneak peek at these the other night <3

      I've also noticed the run on WnW at my local stores, especially anytime they go on sale. It's nuts- WnW stuff used to sit on the shelves for months, untouched! These are awesome and I can't believe that I am, yet again, lustng after WET N WILD, of all things. They've come a long way from where they were, I mean, now they're at the point they can play with the big boys, and yet their price points remain among the lowest out there. Thanks for sharing your pics!!

      • Phyrra

        I’m so glad they’ve come so far!

    • http://beautifulwithbrains.com gio

      That green trio is gorgeous! I hope they will be released here soon. :)

      • Phyrra

        I hope so too, they’re nice!

    • Mnemyth

      I remember WnW from my high school days, back in the late 80s/early 90s. The eyeshadows were grainy and the eyeliners were miserable– dry with a lot of drag. I still used them, because, hey, I was a broke kid, know what I mean? I’m so, so, so happy that they’ve made a serious change to their formulas! I’ll be looking for some of the trios when I head out tomorrow :D

      • Phyrra

        I hope you find one you like :)

    • http://www.parokeets.com/ Gejba

      They stopped selling WnW in my country. So I only have couple of “older” shades. I like them – pigmented, nice colors …
      Acid green shade is not “me”, but I like the others. :D

      • Phyrra

        Yeah the pink is fab!

    • http://sparklingluna.blogspot.com Olivia

      Oh those are gorgeous !!

      • Phyrra

        They are :)

      If there was an mainstream non-indie eyeshadow palette to sum up your blog, that’d probably be it.

      I’ve only ever tried Wet N Wild’s eyeliner pencil which was god awful. Impossible to sharpen, far too soft, broke every etc. You can buy those and the nail polishes at this big supermarket we have called Tesco’s.

      Btw, I recieved my Fyrrinae order today :P Just two of the Pixie Epoxies as my mum and I were so curious. It’s been your and Anastasia’s influence that led me to get these so just thought I’d share :P

      Wow. WNW has come a long way since being my go-to brand in HS for all makeup items black and silver (Black liner, black lipstick, black nail polish and silver nail polish). Did they go through a formula revamp recently? They’re owned by the same company that rolls out those crappy Color Workshop caboodles, so I wonder if Color Workshop got a similar treatment.

      • Phyrra

        The quality seems a lot better than I remember.

        • http://parched.etsy.com Parched

          I was wondering about the quality as well. I used W&W some in high school, but only for certain things. I remember the lipsticks being waxy and the mascara smelling like some chemical daisy scent, but they always had a wide range of eye liner colors.

          I haven’t used them much myself in the last 15 years, but I talked my boyfriend into buying an eyeliner in October. It worked pretty well.

      I like the swatches of these much more than I expected to from looking at them in the package. Especially the green one.

      • Phyrra

        The green is awesome!

    • http://www.outinapout.com Jessica Allison

      $1.50 each??? What a steal! I peeked at the Wet n’ Wild display at the grocery store the other day and didn’t notice these. They also definitely weren’t that cheap- I did get a few Wn’W eyeliners on clearance, but even those were more than $1.50!

      I do wish the pink shade from Retro was a little more pigmented, but I love the blue interference on the pink, and it does look nicer than I expected. The other shades, especially the lid & brow bone shades from Genie, are great too!

      I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for these, in fact, I may have to hit Walgreens to see if I can still grab these!

      • Phyrra

        I know! 50% off is awesome.

        I hope you can find them :)

    • http://www.drugstoreandbargainlover.com Stavroula Plag

      Excellent swatches! I want these, as well as the 8pan palettes lol :D x

      • Phyrra

        Oooh which 8 pan set?

    • http://parched.etsy.com Parched

      Okay, so I went in search of these palettes at my local drug store, no dice, but they were having a sale of buy one, get one half-off, and W&W is already pretty cheap, so I grabbed a couple of things.

      IdolEyes Creme Shadow pencils in Pixie (pearly cream color) and Techno (metallic purple/blue). They go on smooth and are really gorgeous, if a little sheer.

      I bought Pixie to use as a neutral base for my loose pigments, but it seems too dry to hold the powder. It’s really weird. It glides on, with no tugging, but when I go to put on pigment, it is just dry. I thought maybe this would make it more useful as just a creme eyeshadow, but it creases like crazy. I tried it both on its own and on top of a primer (I used Tarina Tarantino’s DollSkin) and both creased excessively. It doesn’t really have enough color to stand alone either.

      I used Techno as an eyeliner, and it is gorgeous, but it didn’t last more than 3 hours. I’ve never had something fade or rub off so quickly aside from blush.

      Anyway, they didn’t give me any kind of skin reaction, and they might work for someone with more skill or tools, but they didn’t really work for me. Sad too because they are gorgeous and I think I paid $2.00 for both of them.

      Even more sad, the sale was all over the store, so I picked up some nail enamel too, which is gorgeous and fast drying, but chipped within a couple of hours. :(


      I got the Blue Sky one, I think, and I got it for $1. I haven’t found any good pics on the web for it, but it looks (to me) like a metallic violet highlight, with gray-blue shadows, then from another angle, they look teal or hunter green, depending on the light.

      I’m hoping it was a fluke that it was so chippy because the color is amazing!

      • Phyrra

        Aww, sounds like the nail polish is cool!
