Review: wetnwild I Dream of Greenie

Yay review!

Wetnwild sent me some items to review at the end of June including ColorIcon Trio in I Dream of Greenie #331. I’ve been a fan of wetnwild products since I was a little girl and I’m super glad to see that they’ve prospered over the years and still make great makeup, that costs very little. While I’m not a huge fan of green eyeshadow, I’m not really sure why, it’s just not something I go for most of the time when I’m looking for shadow, this trio is great. The colors are beautiful and pigmented and they applied great. I’ve found that once in awhile I’ll find a shade or two in a trio that just doesn’t want to budge, but these were all soft and went on really well.

I really like the browbone shade, it’s a beautiful green that is semi sheer and can be built up if needed, but it looks beautiful on the inner corner of the eye as well as below the brow. Overall all of the colors were soft and applied like a dream and the eyelid/crease shades were well pigmented. My only issue is with the brushes/sponges that they include. The brushes with these are often kind of mangled looking and loose their hairs. There is nothing per-say wrong with the sponges, I just don’t like them. I don’t like the way the shadows apply with them. So that’s my 2 cents on the brushes. Anyways! If you love green this is a great trio for you. These retail for $2.99 so you can’t beat the price!

  • »»Product: 5/5 Applies well, great formula, well pigmented.

About me

I run this blog! This blog is a personal blog for all things beauty related. I love swatching, reviewing and hosting giveaways. I've been blogging since I was 16 years old... That's uh a long time. I am now 34! Sometimes I like to blog about my life and what is going on, but not often anymore. I hope you enjoy my blog posts!

  • I think I have a green palate (my spelling stinks tonight) somewhere. Maybe I’ll try that and if I like it, then I’ll get it–you’re right it’s definitely not expensive. Thanks for the boost of confidence :)

  • You look like a goddess with those eyes!! I fear I’d look more like an alien : /

    Still….verrrrrry tempting after seeing your swatches!!

    • Aw you should at least try it, it’s cheap enough that if you don’t like it you haven’t wasted much money. :)

  • I really like the look of the Eyelid shade. I’m surprised you don’t like greens much, they look lovely against your eye colour :)

    • I always tend to go for pinks/reds/purples. xd

    I love the WnW shadow trios. I own just about every one of them except this one (even though I love green eyeshadow). The quality is so good! When the Dream Weavers collection came out I bought all six of them for the price of one Sephora eyeshadow trio. How can you go wrong with that? Especially for the quality? And then of course there is the nostalgia factor. I used to buy frosty pink WnW lipgloss in junior high. :HK:

    • I missed the dreamweavers trio’s. :( I am very sad about that too. I really wanted them. Oh well. I remember my mom using their blue eyeliner pencil back in the day to line her eyes and some of their shadows. xd

  • They were sold out of this palette when I went to Wal-Mart the other day, I think – I ended up getting the “Cool As A Cucumber” palette, and the darker shadows were kinda muddy and only stayed on for a few hours (over primer) before crumbling off and creeping off my lids. Ew! :( This palette, with your swatches, looks a LOT better. I think I’ll give it another shot – at a few bucks a pop, you can’t really lose! :)

    • Some of the palettes I have have a color that is really kind of awful but they aren’t that expensive and overall I’ve been more impressed than disappointed in them. :d

  • SOO PRETTYFUL! Your eyes pop and look so blue with green shadow its crazy <3 I cannot rock green shadows LOL its never a color i go for either, but you definitely rock it!!!

    • They’re really pretty colors I just usually go for pink/red/purple. haha
