Wet n' Wild Creme Eyeliner: A Review

I stumbled upon an entirely new display of Wet n’ Wild products at my local Walgreens. I was curious at first but stricken in awe when I saw a bevy of beautifully packaged, colorful products. In my humble estimation, this is the jackpot of all Wet n’ Wild collections so be on the lookout for more reviews; I purchased a few products.

The focus of this post is the coveted Mega Eyes Crème Eyeliner. If you can look past the superfluous repetition of the word “eye” on the label, this cream eyeliner is quite a bargain at $3.99. I purchased the Eggplant but this is also available in Black for those seeking a more traditional option. Eggplant is a blue-toned, blackened plum without a hint of red; nearly an indigo. For reference, I’ve taken a picture of Eggplant along with my other purple cream liners. If you’d like to try a purple liner but find that it accentuates redness, this is the liner for you. I found that this color makes eyes appear whiter and brighter and made my (normally blue-green) eyes look a vivid blue.

There is a liner brush included but I found it too wide. However, it is the perfect size for shading eyebrows.

My only qualm with the liner, one which some may find beneficial, is that it does not budge! It took several Jojoba Oil soaked cotton pads to get it off. In fact, I was scared that it stained my skin but luckily, that was not the case.

This can be purchased in various drugstores and if all else fails, you’re sure to find it at Kmart!

Interesting...Have you tried L'Oreal's HIP liner? If so, how does it compare?
