I really wanted to give the Wet N' Wild eyeshadow palettes a try since I've heard nothing but good things about them on Youtube; that they're really good quality and really inexpensive and all that. Unfortunately, the only place I could find near me that carried Wet N' Wild was Walgreens, and since the closest one to me is not really within busing or walking distance, I had to pester my husband to drive me there. I ended up buying one eight-pan palette, two five-pan palettes, and four three-pan palettes. Normally, I'm not one to buy a whole bunch of similar products from the same line, even if they are cheap, but since I didn't know when I'd be able to get back to Walgreens, and because they are so cheap, I bought most of them (at least, the ones they had at my Walgreens. I think there are a few more out there).
Overall, I'm not really impressed to the point where I would say you have to go out and buy them right now, but I don't think they are bad, especially for the price. I much prefer my other eyeshadow palettes, but then again, I don't have anything drugstore to compare them to. Some palettes/colors are better than others, and I think the common "drugstore mattes tend to not be very good" sentiment applies here.
I'll start with my eight-pan palette: Comfort Zone.
The two five-pan palettes I got ended up being the most disappointing (they also had the largest amount of matte shades). I had heard that other people disliked the five-pan palettes as well, so I feel confident saying you should skip these and stick to the eight- and three-pan palettes.
The other five-pan palette I have, Floral Values, was the most disappointing out of all the Wet N' Wild palettes I got. I actually purchased this at a different Walgreens (we went out to eat one night and there was a Walgreens right next to the restaurant) so I don't have a picture of the palette itself, but I do have swatches of it.
Now on to the four three-pan palettes I got! All of the shadows in these palettes are shimmer/glitters, so they overall performed pretty well, especially for the price.
I'll keep going in the order of "less boring colors" and talk about the Sweet As Candy three-pan palette next.
Moving towards more color, next is Silent Treatment.
Finally, I have the I'm Getting Sunburned palette!
And those are all the palettes I have! Like I said, overall I wasn't absolutely floored by these, but I think I had really high expectations based on everything I heard about them. If I hadn't heard much and just bought these on a whim, I probably would have been way more impressed since I would have started with lower expectations. I do think the eight-pan and three-pan palettes are definitely worth the money, and if you're looking to buy drugstore makeup, these are a great choice both value-wise and quality-wise. You can do a lot worse for a lot more money. On the other hand, if you already have a ton of eyeshadow that you love, or you're a die-hard MAC/Too Faced/Urban Decay/etc. fanatic, I don't think these are "must have" products.
