Might Not Make It- Wet n Wild H2O Proof Liquid Eyeliner

Greetings!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, I know I did!  I spent time at my city's fair with my nephew and had an "interesting" time.  I don't know what it is about going to these things but as I get older I realize how much emphasis I used to put in attending these types of events from the outfit to how much games I won, now I'm just glad to get in a funnel cake without feeling guilty afterward, LOL.  Enough about that, let's get into the review, shall we?

As some of you may know I have been on the search for a decent liquid eyeliner ever since my favorite ran out a couple of months ago and since then I have been on a search for a new favorite.  I first wanted to start on the drugstore brands first and work my way up to the more costly liners.  I happened across this Wet N Wild H2O Proof liquid eyeliner at my local drugstore and figured since it was priced right at $1.99 I'd give it a try.  The color I chose is in Black-Brown, a darkened brown that leans more black than brown.  See for yourself.

One Pass

Two Passes
Let's first start with the obvious, definitely not an opaque liner, even with two passes it was still giving me streaky pay off, a no go for me as I do not have the time to wait for it to dry and then give another passing.  The color is pretty spot on in terms of color name.  There was no scent to this product which is wonderful for those afraid of scented cosmetics, then again, I don't think I've ever heard of scented eyeliner, lol.

Next, is the packaging, pretty weird but I don't really care, I'm more concerned with the product than I am the packaging but for those of you that care, here goes.



The actual product is in the lower half of the packaging and the long silver part is the liner brush/sponge/toothpick.....more on that soon.  I felt with this kind of packaging that I would get a brush applicator but I was sadly disappointed when I pulled it out and saw this:


From your perspective it looks like a soft, felt-tip applicator but in reality it is not.  Applying this to the lids is the equivalent to taking a toothpick to do the job of applying eyeliner.  I was definitely bothered by this because I was expecting more.  It is flexible when swatching but when actually doing the job as eyeliner my eyes were not pleased.  The color was NOT opaque and takes a good 2 minutes to dry.  :(

Now I bet your curious, "Is it really waterproof?"  First of all, this product does not claim to last for a certain amount of time but I took it upon myself to swatch it on my hand at 3PM and check back at 3PM the next day.  Keep in mind I was washing my hands, washing my hair, greasing my scalp, washing dishes, etc.  This did not budge so if you're looking for a waterproof liner this may be it.  Here's how it looks after that 24 hours:


Minor cracking but overall it lasts.  I'm pretty sure that you all wouldn't be wearing liquid liner for 24 hours but I wanted to show you how this product held up to its waterproof claim.  I think it did pretty well.

Overall, I would not recommend this product because of the liner applicator and the lack of color opacity.  I know there is better out there than this and I wouldn't want you to succumb to this. 

So what do you think?  Have you tried this liquid eyeliner before?  Do you use it?  Do you like it/ hate it?

  1. Tried it a few months ago and threw it away. Not a good product at all. I too am in search of a good liquid eyeliner, since I don't wear it that often and totally forgot the brand of the one I used eons ago.
