Wet 'n' Wild Dream Weavers Collection

In this economic climate, Wet 'n' Wild offers great products with excellent color payoff at an affordable price.  I was lucky enough to snag the full set of Dream Weavers Trios ($2.99 each).  The trios offer a nice range of versatility from neutral to trendy shades in various finishes.  For those of you that missed previous limited edition products, some of the shades make an appearance in this collection.  Other shades bear some resemblance to those offered in current Color Icon Trios or 8-shade Palettes.


The collection consists of 6 trios as follows (pictured above from top to bottom; left column and then right):


1. Bright Idea - #33645 - Gold (browbone); Green (crease); Fuchsia (eyelid) 

  • Shown on the left next to Spoiled Brat - Eyelid shades are very similar though Spoiled Brat's appears to be slightly darker




  • Shown on the left next to I Got Good Jeans - Browbone shade brighter and more yellow than the eyelid shade offered in I Got Good Jeans


  •  Shown on the right next to I Dream of Greenie - Crease shades are similar; new crease shade slightly more olive



2. We're Blasting Off -  #33646 - Pink (browbone); Shimmery purple/burgundy (crease - similar to MAC Beautymarked); Taupe (eyelid)

  • Shown on the left next to Silent Treatment - eyelid shades are similar


  • Shown on the right next to Petal Pusher - browbone color similar to browbone shade on the right of Petal Pusher and crease shades are similar

  • This trio has been said to look like Sweet As Candy.  Unfortunately, this trio needs to be replaced in my stash so I don't have a photo at this time.  Rest assured though, that these are not the same at all.

3. Dancing In The Clouds - #33647 - Shimmery taupe (browbone); bright purple (crease); light rust (eyelid)

  • Shown on the left next to Comfort Zone - eyelid shade similar to the eyelid shade in the left column of Comfort Zone



4. Fly Me To The Moon - #33648 - white (browbone); glittery black (crease); royal blue (eyelid)

  • Shown to the right of Blue Had Me At Hello - crease color similar to the definer shade in the right column of Blue Had Me At Hello


  • Shown to the left of Blue Had Me At Hello - browbone shade similar to browbone shade in the left column of Blue Had Me At Hello




5. Earth Looks Small From Down Here - #33649 - olive (browbone); shimmery blue (crease); green (eyelid)

  • Shown on the right of Comfort Zone - browbone shade similar to eyelid shade in the right column of Comfort Zone; I find it slightly more olive



  • Shown on the right of I Got Good Jeans - crease shades are similar 



6. Enter A New Realm - #33650 - silver (browbone); matte black (crease); shimmery red (eyelid)

  • Shown on the right of 2010 Holiday Limited Edition Night Elf - browbone shades similar; eyelid shade similar to crease shade in the right column of the Night Elf palette

  • Shown on the left of Blue Had Me At Hello palette - crease shade similar to the definer shade at the bottom left of Blue Had Me At Hello



While there are some similarities to products still offered, this collection affords those of you that have missed out on previous collections, or can't seem to find the 8-shade palettes or trios in your area, the opportunity to try these great shades.

I love the color payoff on these.  I generally apply over a primer and they seem to last long enough for me.  Some of the glittery shades do have some fallout so if using them, I'll use a light hand and apply my eyeshadow before my foundation.  All in all, these shadows are a "dream" and I can't wait to "weave" some looks with them.
