Wet n Wild On Cloud Nine (384B) Trio - swatch

For today, I have for you Wet n Wild's ColorIcon trio in On Cloud Nine (384B)...

Wet n Wild On Cloud Nine trio - flash
Here is On Cloud Nine, a trio of two shimmery shadows and one matte.  I was luckily able to purchase this at Walgreen's over a 40% off sale WnW they were having not too long ago.  These trios never retail over $3 USD.  Like all of the palette type makeup Wet n Wild makes, this is enclosed in a plastic, clamshell casing.  Within the palette is 0.12oz/3.5g of product.

Wet n Wild's On Cloud Nine starts with the "browbone" color which I find to be an icy, very shimmery, baby blue.  The "crease" color is a beautiful neutral brown with silver micro flecks (they usually fall out as you blend this color, and unless used on an extremely sticky base, do not show up).  The last shadow "eyelid" is again a shimmery cornflower blue.  

All three shades are supremely cushiony and soft.  They are all really soft to the touch with the "crease" shade being the softest...almost crumbling at the slightest touch.  I found this lent them ease when blending.  The three shadows really did work well together, in blend and color.  

WnW On Cloud Nine trio - flash
In flash, the top shade does have an air of frostiness, but never comes off looking cheap.  In this lighting, I was more a fan of the darker blue shade.

Here, that beautiful creamy brown and darker blue are really standouts.  

With a decent primer, these wore pretty uniformly and fresh for around 6 hours.  If you are not a fan of blues, that brown alone is worth making the effort to get this palette.  With how soft and blendable all of the shadows in this trio are, I can see this becoming an accent of any neutral looks you may use.  This is part of the permanent range of trios, so I do not think you will have any problems finding this!  Enjoy! xoxo
