I'm not "Walking on Eggshells" when I tell you these trios are "Sweet as Candy!"

Continuing in my mini-series about Wet n Wild Color Icon shadows, today I'm showing you two incredibly similar palettes.  Don't be fooled, though!  These are quite different!



On the left there's Sweet as Candy and on the right is Walking on Eggshells.  These both make me think of Neapolitan ice cream!  Yum!  (What flavor do you always want?  Does anybody seriously take equal portions of all three?!  No way!)




Ok, so both palettes feature a white/off-white browbone shade, brown crease shade, and pink eyelid shade.


Sweet as Candy

Walking on Eggshells



Sweet as Candy's browbone shade is more true white.  I'd say it's the least pigmented out of all six of these shades.  It has a slight shimmer to it - as do all of today's shades.  Walking on Eggshell's white is more creamy white.   The pigmentation is much better.




Sweet as Candy's crease shade is a grayish brown color.  I'd say this is the color I instantly think of when I think "brown."  Walking on Eggshell's crease shade is more yellowish brown.  It reads as milk chocolate to me!



Sweet as Candy's eyelid shade is much more pink than Walking on Eggshell's eyelid shade.  It has a nice rose color whereas the Walking on Eggshell pink is more champagne colored and metallic.


L - Sweet as Candy; R - Walking on Eggshells


So which trio wins out?  Well, they're both steals at $2.99!  However, I prefer Walking on Eggshells.  I think the pink in Walking on Eggshells is much more wearable than the pink in Sweet as Candy.

Plus, Sweet as Candy loses points for the poorly pigmented browbone shade.  I think Walking on Eggshells creates a gorgeous neutral eye and this is something I grab if I'm feeling rushed and can't come up with an eye look quickly.

You need it!
