Wet N Wild: Walking on Eggshells Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette

I love Wet N Wild's "Walking on Eggshells" palette, these colours are the tones that I reach for most often from my MAC, Urban Decay, and Too Faced palettes except for a fraction of the cost. I don't know how Wet N Wild is able to offer these exceptional quality shadows for so cheap, it's been said before, but it's like a disgruntled MAC employee started working for them and created shadows just as good.

"Walking on Eggshells" has a shimmery golden white colour, a bronzey warm brown and a peachy pink shade (the stunner in this palette). I like using the browbone shade in the inner corner instead, and the other two as instructed on the packaging. The eyelid shade is love, love love.

The peachy/pink eyelid shade has been compared to Stila's Kitten, a very popular shadow. I don't own that one, but I have compared it here with several similar colours in my collection (click on image to enlarge). It's close to Urban Decay's Sin, but not as pink, more peachy and it's like a better version of MACs Naked Lunch in my opinion, Naked Lunch is very subtle and sheerer.

Here they are swatched, pigmented is very good. This trio is definitely a hit with me and the most wearable that I have from Wet N Wild for sure. If you own Egyptian Sands, an old trio from Wet N Wild, it's apparently the exact same as this, however Wet N Wild has reformulated their shadows since then, they are creamier and more pigmented. I might have that palette kicking around somewhere, I gotta look around for it, and I will compare.

I wish Wet N Wild would come out with a collection of matte shadows, because although I love these trios, it would be cool to have a variety of shimmers and mattes. I could see these being too much for some people. But aside from that, this palette is beautiful and cheap! Another winner for Wet N Wild.

Do you have Wet N Wild's Walking on Eggshells?

WnW's shadows can be too shimmery for me; sometimes I pair them with mattes from other brands. I agree this palette is one of their nicest. I think Silent Treatment is my new favorite because the crease shade is matte with some glitter. It's nice to break up the shimmer.

Great job doing the comparisons, and I totally agree about the mix of mattes & shimmers. While these shadows are great I'd love them to do more mixed palettes :)

Hey Justine! Fabulous post, I lol'ed at your thought about the MAC employee jumping ship and designing shadows for WnW! But, so true!!! I, like you, reach for these just as much (if not more) than some of my high end shadows! FAB shadows for sure. I have this trio too and I love it. Also, yes, agreed...I would love more matte shades! :) xoxo!!!

I think this is the most perfect palette I've ever seen - all the shades I need for my everyday eye look...I'm so tempted to buy this now!

Have you had a problem with the packaging of these shadows?

My friend from NY sent me Silent Treatment (along with a few blushes and nailpolishes)...and the eyeshadow COMPLETELY disintegrated in the packaging - although the other make-up was I wonder if this is a delicate product that you can't carry around with you?

Thank you so much for these swatches! I think I really have to go and get a bunch of wet'n'wild eye shadows. When i was young I used to use these all the time but I though they were 'cheap' and 'no good' but now I'm seeing them ALL OVER people's blogs! I really want to start growing my brown tones collection so this looks like a great pack to purchase!
Thanks so much!
