My favorite of the four trios I have taken pictures of and shown color swatches for is the "Sweet As Candy" trio. You get a creamy ivory shade for the browbone, a true brown with a slightly bronze tone for the crease, and a silver-toned pink for the lid. All of these shades have a subtle metallic sheen as well. I have been wearing this trio to death. This says a lot because I choose it over a large multitude of high-end brand and/or much more expensive eyeshadows. I have almost hit the pan on the pink shade in this trio and this really says something because I have only done this twice in my life! And the other time was with the Cover Girl Shimmering Sands trio. Proof positive that drug store brands are improving their competitive edge. Moving on, my second favorite and most often used trio is the "Walking on Eggshells" Trio which gives you a slightly more beige/ivory browbone shade. I prefer this brownbone shade over the one in Sweet As Candy. Next you get a bronze brown that is lighter than the one previously mentioned in the last trio.Lastly, the eyelid shade is more of a peach-toned pink which is just gorgeous. You can easily mix and match these trios and they would still compliment one another perfectly. For a change of pace, the next trio is called "I Got Good Jeans" and is part of the Spring 2011 collection. For the browbone you get a silvery-blue shade which is gorgeous but I don't think it works on the browbone being that it is just too much color. You'd have to use a very light hand with it and it could work. Next, a true navy blue with subtle sparkle. I love this shade. Truly one of my favorites! I've been looking for a good navy and this is perfect. Also perfect is its coordinating eyelid shade which is gold with gold shimmer. Coupled together, you have a stunning combination for a dramatic eye. I am trying to hunt down "Silent Treatment" which is also a part of the Spring 2011 collection. Another beautiful neutral palette with what looks to be a dark dark brown crease shade and taupey-brown lid color. This is said to be the hardest to find. Figures. Last, and in my opinion, least if I'm going to play favorites is "Knock On Wood." This trio looks a bit confused. The shades are very pretty, don't get me wrong. I just think they don't work in the order they are put in. For one, the lid shade is pretty dark for a lid shade. Its a brown-toned dusty rose shade and made me look sick when I applied it to my eyelid. Kind of like a cross between getting punched and waking up with a swollen eye lid. This would actually make a good crease color. The crease color it does come with is fine for the crease as it is being the darkest of the three browns I've spoken about. The browbone shade is also misplaced in my opinion. It is too much color for a browbone shade. It is a true mauve. Even with the lightest application it would still make you look like you got punched again. This would make a much better lid color but I'd still tone it down with one of the other pinks in the other trios.
Another plus is that Wet N' Wild does have them labeled as "browbone", "crease", and "eyelid" to show their suggestion for the application and also prove that they are coordinated in such a way to compliment one another and take the guess work out of what to pair with what. People love this, trust me.
I will be purchasing more as I see more of a selection in stores. I'd like to give Wet N' Wild a pat on the back for jumping into the game and possibly winning a few as well. I reach for my Color Icon trios just as often as the Urban Decay Naked Palette and could easily see any one of the shades in my Color Icon Trios right along side of UD favorites like "Sin" or "Toasted".
