Before the Wet n Wild re-branding, I didn’t welcome their eyeshadows. I mean their quality wasn’t awful but considering the better products in my stash, I didn’t want to use WnW.

However, once I saw this palette, I automatically grabbed it and bought to compare it with the hyped iconic eyeshadow palette from ABH.

I think you know already what my review will be about.

The only difference lies in the absence of 4 shades:

And of course, the packaging looks too simple. And yeah, the price tag aspect.

I was impressed when I saw how nicely the shades were copied and 80% of swatches look absolutely the same. On my eyes, they don’t look identical, though that difference in semi-shades is always tough to notice.

However, the price tag of $42 and $6 will bring a big difference to your wallet.

I’ll attach several photos with my makeup looks, where the Wet n Wild eyeshadows were applied on the left, while the ABH products are on the right. And I think that these photos will show you everything themselves.

ABH - upper swatches, WnW at the bottom.

The only difference that stands out is that very ash-pink shade (on the right), which is pinkier on my eyes and the shade Fresco on the left.

But still, it wasn’t the color selection which impressed me the most. I was blown away when I understood that they didn’t just copy the shades, filling in the refills with the cheapest ingredients, they also copied the quality of the products because they are still nice to blend out and pigmented. My respect!

After testing this palette, I wish I had a choice to buy the original Modern Renaissance palette or get by with the cheaper dupe. I know it for sure that I’d opted for the Wet n Wild palette without thinking back. They really impressed me with the product’s quality.
