Review: Wet n Wild 'Sweet As Candy' Eyeshadow Trio

Greetings lovely readers! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! I am rather cheerful myself, which is kind of unusual~ Anyways, I am taking a small break from playing video games (Skyrim Dawnguard anyone?) to bring you a quick review.

If you have been living under a rock for the past two years, then these Wet n Wild trios might be new to you. I love drugstore cosmetics, and when it comes to drugstore eyeshadows, Wet n Wild is hands down my favorite. Wet n Wild is really inexpensive, yet they offer a variety of shades with amazing pigmentation. These are a must-have from the drugstore!

Price and Availability

$2.99 at most drugstores. You can sometimes find them even cheaper if they are on sale!

The palette contains a soft pearly white, taupe, and cool frosty pink.

Product in Action!

I have on the pink color on the lid, the taupe-brown on the crease and lash line, and the pearl white on the brown bone along with some mascara.


$2.99 for three good quality eyeshadows? It can't get much better than that. These eyeshadows rival the quality of MAC ones. They are very smooth and easy to blend. These three colors from the Sweet As Candy trio are very soft shades, much better suited for those of you who like a demure look. I personally picked this trio up for those occasions where I want a very soft look (mostly for when I go to church). I also had thought that the pink shade would be more warm-toned (but it is actually rather cool-toned).
Like with most of the other Wet n Wild products, I always have to complain about the packaging: it kind of sucks. I hate having to open the palettes when you first buy them because they have these really annoying stickers on the cover that are very difficult to remove. Make sure to be careful with the palettes too, they can break easily. And this brings me to my last point: the eyeshadows are very soft and they can break easily as well. I have already had 2 incidents with my eyeshadows shattering when I accidentally hit them against my desk. So be careful to handle them gently. 
Even with those cons, this is still an amazing palette.

Rating: 9.5/10

  2. Thankyou for the review! The colours are so pretty. It's really similar to walking on eggshells though. xD

  3. Love WNW, and this trio! The shades are great for everyday looks. :)

  4. they do break too easily but man, can't beat that price/quality

  5. Wet n wild has really come along way since when I started wearing makeup. I agree packaging sucks but the quality is really great for the price.

  6. I reallyyyyyyy love this brown shade! Gorgeous!

  7. I have Walking on Eggshells, and these colours are very similar. I love these trios- good quality at a fraction of the price of other brands? Yes, please!

  8. I love WNW shadows but I agree they DO break easily. I tried depotting them into a Z-palette. MISTAKE. Sigh. It's not a big deal to replace them, but sheesh! Pretty colors though, and they have such a good variety - it's not all run of the mill colors.

  9. Beautiful look! I don't think I own this palette, but I have a ton of them and love them all!

  10. When they break I just gather all the pieces put them back in the pan, add a few drops of alcohol and press them lightly with a Q tip. Good as new! Careful not to drown the shadow. Let them dry over night open before you use them.
