As much as I love those products (Reserve Your Cabana is my bronzer shade, just FYI), my all time favorite Wet ‘n Wild product is actually the very first one I featured in our Makeup Wars posts, the Color Icon eye shadows.
My favorite shade is Nutty, which comes as an eye shadow single. It is a great dupe for MAC Satin Taupe, though less pigmented. I think this actually makes it easier to work with, and it is one of my favorite shadow colors. I think I’ve gone through 4 or 5 of this shadow.
FYI, they recently “revamped” this shadow, and it is now labelled as “new” on the packaging. I can’t tell the difference between the old and new shades. I wore swatches of both on my arm and checked it out in a ton of different lights. I thought sometimes in low light I could convince myself that they were slightly different. To me, they apply the same and have the same consistency and wear. Otherwise the only difference is that the new version is smooth in the palette rather than having an embossed emblem.
The Color Icon palettes are also pretty amazing, especially for the price. These shadows are pretty well pigmented and blend well with great shades.
The Comfort Zone palette has long been an online favorite, but last year they released Rosé in the Air, which has a lot of shades similar to the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. Katie has a great post comparing the Wet n Wild palette to Anastasia palette, and she has concluded that they are dupes.
As someone that has both palettes, I can tell you the shades are very similar, the Anastasia is slightly easier to work with and has more shades. But there is a big difference in price between the two palettes, so the Wet ‘n Wild is a great starting point.
