If you read my rave about Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Single in Brulee, you know I’m a big fan of Wet n Wild’s shadows. I recently picked up three new shades: Nutty 252B, Unplugged 301, and Panther 255C.

NUTTY: Shimmery taupe-y brown

I’m calling this brown, but it’s one of those shades that blends many different tones. It appears cooler in the pan than swatched. The texture is amazing. It’s so smooth, yet extremely pigmented. Unlike the other two, this isn’t is a new release.

UNPLUGGED: pearly white with fine glitter

While this is definitely white, it has a subtle sort of silvery tone to it. The color reminds me of the Sephora eyeshadow Alpine Summit that came in the VIB birthday kit a year or two ago. It has good color payoff and texture – not quite as silky or pigmented as Nutty, but not chalky or overly powdery either. I did have some glitter fall out when using this one.

PANTHER: deep matte black

I LOVE Panther. It’s super smooth, pigmented, and just a great staple shade. I’m excited that there’s now an affordable, cruelty-free matte black that’s easily accessible in drugstores.

One negative about these is that they crumble so easily. I took the photos for this post before I used any of them. They’d already started cracking, just from removing the sticker seal and opening the packaging. In the past, I’ve depotted these shadows, which I think helps keep them from completely falling apart.

Unplugged: inner corner, onto my lid; Nutty: on my lid, into the crease, lightly on my lower lash line; Panther: along my lash line and blended lightly into the outer corner.

I also used a mix of the medium matte shades from the Vanity and Greed palettes to blend out the crease and the lightest matte shade from one of those palettes (they’re very similar) to blend out edges and on my brow bone.


The Basics

  • Where to Buy: Online and in store at drugstores including Walgreens and CVS. Check their Where to Buy page for retailers in your area.
  • Price: $1.99
  • Animal Testing Policy: Wet n Wild is cruelty-free and on PETA’s list of companies that don’t test on animals. Many of their products are also vegan – you can check which on the Wet n Wild FAQ page (it looks like Nutty 252B is vegan, but I don’t see the other two shades listed). Wet n Wild is made by Markwins International.

Have you tried the Wet n Wild Color Icon line?

    Beautiful eyes–and eyebrows! :-) That’s too bad that they crumble so easily, but I really love the swatches. I don’t have these colors. x

    • Catherine

      You’re sweet, Moxie! I think you’d particularly like Nutty. Let me know how you like them, if you try them ♥

  • Becca

    I was ABOUT to grab Nutty the other day at CVS but I passed for some reason…WHYYYY?!? This is too pretty!

    • Catherine

      Hahah I was feeling the same way, like how am I just trying this now? It really is pretty, let me know how you like it if you pick it up! ♥

  • Sunny

    I wish Wet n’ Wild were more easily available here! I have Comfort Zone and I really love it (can’t believe how much it costs)! I was so pleasantly surprised by Panther. It’s hard to get matte blacks right, and you have this little gem here that won’t even break the bank!

    • Catherine

      I hope Wet n Wild starts expanding, I think availability is a problem. Even in the US, it seems like their collections only get released in certain stores (which of course are never near me – grr). But I totally agree about Panther…I love that there’s this really smoky deep black that doesn’t turn navy – for $1.99! ♥
