For my very first review, I thought it was fitting to have something that is accessible and affordable for women everywhere, and they are especially a great product (in my humble opinion) and it is wet n wild’s Comfort Zone eyeshadow palette!
Each of the shades are as follows: Pictures are a tad bit darker than they are in person!
The shades in this are very earth-toned, making this versatile, but the thing that jumped out at me the most upon first look is that these are all non-matte eyeshadows. Unfortunately, the shadows are not named, so they are difficult to reference. For that reason, I have referenced them by number as in the captions throughout this review.

Once again, this is a non-matte eyeshadow palette; the shadows are either shimmery with pearl/satin finish, or with glitter flecks. Based on that alone, this is not a palette that offers a versatile number of looks, as it’s purely built on shimmery shades, which have a more of a lid and defining function than as crease and base shadows.
Performance-wise, these shadows are comparable with the likes of MAC eyeshadows. They are very pigmented even with one finger swipe and brush swipe. As for the lasting power, it is not as long lasting and completely in place and as opaque after a work day (8 hours) as when the makeup is fresh.
Ingredients-wise, there is nothing new and different that makes this stand out from other eyeshadows. This does have talc, which is known to be a filler- not necessarily a bad thing as it isn’t harmful, however it is known to be a cheap filler often used in makeup and beauty products.
In my opinion, this eyeshadow palette does a good job of fulfilling their claims- and going beyond it. The eyeshadows are very silky and glides right onto the lid, making them very blendable as well. The variety of the shades also can be combined to form many different looks, both daytime and work-appropriate, to night-time and dinner dates.
The shadows are also labelled with one of the following: browbone, eyelid, crease, and definer. This makes it somewhat useful for beginners and newbies to cosmetics and makeup application, but it should be known that the shades don’t need to be restricted to what it’s meant for- for instance, shadow 1 (browbone) would be beautiful as a light wash of colour all over the lid.
Application: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8/10)
Value: ★★★★★★★★★★ (10/10)
Durability/longevity: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7/10)
Pigmentation: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)
Overall: ★★★★★★★★*☆☆ (8.5/10)
This is a great find in a drugstore for all makeup lovers, whether you’re an amateur or a professional! The epitome of great value and quality for the fraction of a price- dare I say, these may even outperform eyeshadows offered by some mid-high end beauty brands.
