Hi there! Today I will be reviewing the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette. I’ve been eyeing this palette for years! My story with Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette goes back to the time way before it was repackaged and given this new look which you’ll see in the post. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this since then.
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: ₹499 for 10 shades; 8.5g.
Availability: Hokmakeup, Nykaa and Flipkart. Can be found on discount during the sale for around ₹350-400.
I bought this palette a few months ago when it was on sale on Hokmakeup for ₹370 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 was the best choice.
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! It’s something I can work with but would avoid travelling with it. (Or at least bubble wrap it)
Texture & Smell
The shadows are very 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. The shadows don’t have any weird or sweet smell which is a good thing.
This warm-toned 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 and that’s what we’ll be using when I talk about them. The lighter shimmer shades are slightly more soft than the darker ones, in general.
Comfort Zone Shade #1: A matte, medium to dark orange shade with warm undertones. Really pretty transition shade to bring out the warmth.
Comfort Zone Shade #2: A matte, dark brown with warm, red undertones. Slightly patchy but blends out well after some effort.
Comfort Zone Shade #3: Light champagne shade. Takes some time to build up the intensity.
Comfort Zone Shade #4: A light green shade with a pearly sheen.
Comfort Zone Shade #5: Dirt-gold shade with metallic undertones.
Comfort Zone 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.
Comfort Zone 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!
Comfort Zone Shade #9: Deep warm-toned brown which was slightly less dry. Very pigmented and applies well.
Comfort Zone 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.
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 prime my lids with a concealer.
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. I did go over the matte shades more than once though.
This palette is very versatile and you can create a variety of looks with this. I did two eye looks as you can see below.
One’s channelling the green vibes of this palette and I used the right side of the palette. And the other one has all the browns and I used the left side.
If you’re a beginner or just want 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.
