Packaging: As usual, I have nothing to complain about in terms of Wet n Wild’s trios. They come in a small, durable plastic container with an angled thick brush (suitable for crease color or smudging colors on lashline) and a regular applicator. There’s a matte/satin tan browbone color (interesting change of pace), a peach (matte satin) crease color and a  interesting eyelid color. I would describe it as a charcoal brown/navy blue satiny duochrome with a midtone purple duochrome and very fine lavender and turquoise glitter. It’s really cool to look at in the pan! It translates to navy blue at best on the lid and dark brown at it’s least interesting. But it’s a really unique color, one I couldn’t find a dupe for in my collection.

So far, I’ve had this palette about two weeks. I have only worn it as prescribed: matte tan browbone, peach crease/lid, thick, hazy, navy smudgey smokey liner on top lash line. I have absolutely been loving this set as we transition into fall. It’s still largely neutral and without adding liner, it’s a very appropriate look for the office. On my skintone, I hesitate to use the blue color for anything but liner because I’m afraid it’ll just end up looking like a blended, aging bruise on my lid or in my crease. So I still have some exploring to do with this smart little palette but I definitely feel like I’ve gotten my three dollars out of it. Plus, at my Walgreen’s, I scored it on sale for $2!

Overall, grab this little palette if you like unusual neutrals!
