I've had this post on the back-burner for the longest time now; I just don't think I can put into words how freaking stinking beautiful these eyeshadows are!!
Alas, I will try my darndest.
Take the jump to indulge in some shadow p0rn!
I've actually had the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette for quite some time now but the single shadow "Nutty" is a new(er; I think I picked this up a few months ago) addition to my makeup wardrobe.
It wasn't until recently (the month of March) though, when I pulled these out of my makeup drawer (stop judging) for my monthly product rotations, that I fell into a proper love relationship with these Wet n Wild beauties.
True to most shadows from this drugstore budget brand, these are buttery soft, highly pigmented, and basically just an absolute joy to slather on the eyes in the morning.
I'll be honest, Nutty threw me for a loop.
I had always heard wonderful things about this shadow (mainly how beautiful of a color it is) but honestly it just didn't grab me upon glancing through the plastic packaging; it seemed like nothing more than a typical cool toned brown/grey.
OH HOW FANTASTICALLY WRONG WAS I.
Once swatched, Nutty is a complete color-shifter (beautiful sneaky b**tard). This is one of THE MOST beautiful warm hazelnut coffee bean colors on the market (and you KNOW I don't say these things lightly).
The fact that I'm willing to keep a single shadow out on my bathroom counter (read: make myself do the morning hassle hustle) says it all. Nutty is worth it... it's worth everything.
Onto the Comfort Zone palette:
Truth be told, I don't use all of the shadows in this palette. The first three colors on the right side are fairly useless (I can't see anyone getting much use out of those shades, though I can see them as the lovely shadows they are if you're wanting to create a green shadow look [bless your soul]) but that's A-OKAY by me because the left side of the Comfort Zone palette and the duochrome definer shade on the right side are more than worth the $4.99 you shell out for this collection of shadows.
These all have a frost finish to them (apart from the two shimmer/sparkle shades) but don't let that frighten you; these look absolutely stunning on the eyes and, when blended properly with other matte shadows (sadly not included), are sure to melt a few hearts (though thankfully not literally).

I've collected a handful of shadow looks throughout the days here to show you all how versatile the Comfort Zone palette and Nutty can be. From simple day to smokey night (though I wore that look to school roflolz), these shadows have you covered!!
Do you have the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette or Nutty single eye shadow?
Love 'em? Hate 'em?
What eye shadow palette are you currently loving?
