Yes, repeat offender folks. It’s not that I mind a little chase when it comes to getting my beauty products. After all, so much of the thrill is in the hunt, isn’t it? But, there comes a point in time when the hunt becomes annoying and is no longer worth the time and effort. I am getting there with Wet n Wild’s new releases. I love the company, I love their products, but man oh man, they really need to work on their distribution. The least you can do is make your product available to purchase online either through your own website or a selected retailer if you can’t seem to coordinate the actual brick & mortar stores getting and displaying the product. *end rant*
But, luckily if you are like me and have made friends with lovely fellow beauty addicts, you probably have someone who has found their products and would be happy to send them to you. This happened with me. I owe a HUGE thank you to Missy of Start2FinishMUA (go check out her fabulous YouTube Channel) and Courtney of Eyes, Lips and Curls (such a wonderful blogger) for getting me the entire Dreamweavers collection. I am only going to show 4 of the trios here because I haven’t decided yet if I am going to keep the others or give them away to someone who might use them more than I will. 😉 These two girls are so sweet and awesome, definitely worth checking them out and following them on Twitter.
I was generally happy with the performance of both of these trios. The pink shade in We’re Blasting Off could definitely be better and more pigmented. But the taupe shade makes up for it completely. So soft and applies like buttah. I am in love with that shade. Earth Looks Small From Down Here performed well, the gold shade being the best of the three. Not the best I have seen from Wet n Wild, but better than the pink shade of the other trio. All of the colors are pretty though, and wearable.

The Bright Idea trio is perfect. No complaints for me on any of the shades. They all applied nicely, smoothly and well-pigmented. It’s not the most practical palette I own but I like to have something to mix it up. I could see this being great for spring and summer next year. Now, Dancing in the Clouds was the trio I looked forward to the most. And two of the shades are incredible. But if you were looking at this palette because you wanted a great purple, look again. You won’t find it here. That purple is the worst Wet n Wild shadow I have ever swatched, and I own quite a number of their palettes. It is hard, chalky and barely pigmented. To get it to show up at all I had to use half a dozen swipes. Not worth it ladies! But, if you are like me and liked the look of the copper and dirty gold shades, this palette is 100% worth owning because they are quite simply fabulous.
Overall, with the 4 trios I am showing here, Wet n Wild could have done better. I am happy with my trios for the shades that are to-die-for, but it’s left a bad taste in my mouth about the shades that weren’t so great. Add that to the fact that I had to search high and low for them and …well, you get the picture. I do think these are worth owning for the shades that are good, because when you are only paying $2.99 per trio, that’s still a great deal!
Did any of you ladies find these trios? What are your thoughts if you did?
