Wet n Wild Silent Treatment - review, swatches and FOTD

Ever since I bought my first Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette a little while ago (reviewed HERE), I've been wanting to try more from the brand. The one that I really wanted, Walking on Eggshells, was sold out at Crush Cosmetics so I settled for my second choice which was Silent Treatment and boy am I happy with it.
Wet n Wild Silent Treatment - no flash 

Can I just say that the picture of it on Crush Cosmetics is way off and doesn't show how gorgeous it actually is. It wasn't until I saw swatches of it on Tiffany's blog that I sat up and paid notice to Silent Treatment.

Swatches

It comes with 3 complementary shades marked with where they should be worn, but of course you don't have to follow their guidelines and can wear them however you like.
  • Browbone - soft peachy cream (not as pigmented as the other two shades)
  • Crease - dark eggplant/brown with gold specks (extremely pigmented, only a tiny little bit is needed, fairly matte when swatched)
  • Eyelid - a cool toned taupe (this is my absolute favourite shade now, it's so buttery and smooth, and very pigmented)
Swatches in various lights

My favourite way to wear it is with the Eyelid shade all over the lid, the dark Crease colour worn in the outer V and smudged into the lash line (I find it too dark as a crease colour), and the Browbone shade on the... yep, you guessed it, browbone!



This is such an easy to wear palette, it will definitely be on high rotation for me. I find that it really brightens the eye area and doesn't compete with a bolder lip such as this SLA lipstick in #17



Comparison

I've heard the Eyelid shade be compared to the infamous Satin Taupe by MAC, so I thought I'd show you a comparison.

As you can see Satin Taupe is darker than the Wet n Wild eyelid shade, though both are gorgeous. I absolutely do not regret purchasing this palette as not only is it cheap, the quality is just amazing.

Have you tried any of the Wet n Wild eyeshadows before? What are some of your favourites?
