Comfort Zone was really the only 8-pan Wet n Wild that I wanted from the collection. I had asked a friend to try and snag me one when she went back home to the states last Spring, but no such luck. So when I got the opportunity to snag one via Sparkled Beauty, I jumped on it.
For the oh so low cost of $5 CAN I find it extremely useful, and such a great deal for all these colours! I mean its right up my alley in terms of colour.
I also love that it doesn’t take much effort to blend the colours together, meaning lazy newbie’s like me don’t have to worry about it looking horrible, especially when I am in a rush. At the same time, despite the fact that it is so cheap, it lasts, and personally feel that I wouldn’t know it was any different in quality with some of the other shadows that I had in a blind test (as I am no expert in this area, I guess its not that hard…).
One of my favourite shadows in the pan is the last shadow (the definer) in the second column (green side). It looks like a fun green in the picture, but when applied, it does this weird duo-colour thing. It applies orangey-brown, but with a green flash to it, depending on the angle. It reminds me of a Orly polish xD
Anyway, it’s a great deal. If you are looking for a cheap palette to play around with, then I would highly suggest this product. They have one with purples and blues, but as I do not wear those colours, I passed on them. But I wish I could pull them off as I am fond of the idea of getting them all. Oh the shadow addiction…
My mother tries to steal this palette from me from time to time. I will need to stop by Walmart and pick up one for her lol. (I tried recently, and it was sold out! AH! I need to stop my mother from taking mine >_<)
I used Annabelle Smoothie in Cocoaloco (1) as a base colour. I applied it and rub it about. I then applied the dark reddish-brown (2) to the outer part of the lid, and then applied light bronzy-brown to the inner part (3). I then used the light orangey-copper (??? I don’t know how to describe colours. I really should give up lol) (4) at the edges as a blender.
I used Annabelle Smoothie in Absinthe-Minded (1) as my base colour. It blends out to be very light, and I wasn’t expecting it to be that light, but it worked out to my favour in the end. I tried my best to blend it in as fast as I could, as it just wont budge if you don’t get in there fast enough. I then applied the dark green-gold shimmer (2) in to my outer lid. I then applied the lighter green (3) to the middle part, and a little more into the inner part of my lid. I left the most inner part of my lid to be the original Annabelle Smoothie colour. I then used the browbone colour (4) as the blending colour. Wish I had used more of it in the picture though (especially on the outer part of the lid), looked a little too harsh when I opened my eye.
