Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette

Gorgeous shades for the meek and bold. Whether you want to tone it down or go all out, the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette can do it all. The Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Comfort Zone’ is great for beginners. Not only does it have the basic colours to create a nude eyeshadow look, but each colour is labelled according to where it should ideally be put on the eye. For the more adventurous this obviously doesn’t have to be followed to a T and shades from either side can be swapped over to create a different or more dramatic look.


Okay so the packaging is nothing fancy. It’s plastic with a transparent clip lid and is lightweight, although not very sturdy. It contains 8 different eyeshadows that all have a shimmery finish. There is a small brush with an applicator on one side for when you are travelling.


On the back of the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette there is a sketch which shows each part of the eye in case you might not know the terms crease, browbone or where the definer shade should go.


The feel and texture of the eyeshadows themselves are soft and easy to blend. There is a great amount of fallout and I find I have to lay a towel on my lap when I reach for this palette. Worth it whether I use one shade for my crease or multiple shades when I have a little bit of extra time in the mornings. The pigment is amazing of the eyeshadows, they are rich and intense and I only swiped once in the swatches below.

The colours on the left side of the palette are more natural and more of your everyday brown neutrals. Browbone is a creamy gold shade, eyelid is more on the peachy side, crease is a golden bronze and definer is a deep brown similar to Blackheart from my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette.


The right hand side is.. let’s say a bit more adventurous. The browbone shade looks like taupe with a shimmer finish, eyelid is a medium olive green and crease is a dry, almost matte dark grey. My favourite shade in the palette is the definer shade. It is a duochrome of clay red and blue that changes when the light catches it. Some say it is a dupe of the MAC Club eyeshadow but I haven’t gotten a chance to compare them so if you think it is or know of another dupe for this shade then leave a comment below.


Overall I am truly impressed by the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette, the combination of shades and the ease of working with the eyeshadow. I’ve already reached for it already a couple of times this fall. I have seen other 8 shade combination palettes but none of them appealed to me as much as this one did nor did they have any stand out shades I didn’t already own. The price of the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette is R99 ($9) and is available at Clicks. You get a total of 8.5g (0.3oz) of shadow that can compete with a few high end brands in my stash.


Have you tried any Wet n Wild eyeshadows before? Which is your favourite palette?
