I love this product. I was hesitant to buy it at first, since it's wet n' wild, and it's so cheap, but now it's the only liquid eyeliner I use. Usually I use liquid eyeliner to line my inner lids (at the base of the eyelashes), and when using other brands in the past I was only able to line my upper lash line, because it just wouldn't stick to my bottom one, by the end of the day I'd always end up with gross black gook in the corner of my eye. With the product however, I can perfectly line both inner lash lines, it stays on and nearly perfect all day, and it never leads to any gross black eye gook. Buy this product!
I love this liquid liner. It really does last all day. It's a true inky black. Holds up to the more expensive MAC's Liquilast Liners. It is a bit hard to apply at first, I actually like to use the applicator it comes with to make a straight line and use a eye liner brush to paint it closer to my eyes. The only problem is that if you make a mistake it's a PIA to fix. But to me it's well worth it- I hate having my MU fade during the day. This is actually my HG in black liquid liners.
I wanted to see what liquid eyeliner would look like on me and this was only a few dollars. "Water proof, too-what a deal!" I thought. It was all watery and I had to wipe some off of the brush before I applied it (I tried this two different times) so it wasn't all runny. I found it hard to make a straight line, although the brush/wand was easy to hold, yet awkward when you're not using it! It looks so funny! Once it was on, I wasn't sure if I liked it. It dried pretty quick, but about 15 minutes later, I took it off. First I used water. Nothing. I used my makeup remover sheets. Nothing. I used baby oil. I had to SCRUB to get this crap off of me.I had to use so many Q-tips! My eyes were SO sore after trying to wash this off. There are still traces on my eyes, and I woke up this morning with little flakes that are difficult to get off. I am constantly picking them, but it seems like the more that I get off, the more black pieces that come back!
I HATE this stuff! It is so gross. I have yet to be impressed by Wet n' Wild. Their nail polishes always chip in a few hours. Their lip gloss is kind of weird. Their eyeliner won't come off my face. I would not recomend this to anyone.
OK, I have found my HG water proof liquid eyellner, and yes, holy cow, it is Wet N Wild.
Now a little about me so you know why this is my HG:
-I hate reapply makeup (hate it! my days are hectic so I try to carry as little compacts/makeup with me)
-I like a dramatic line
-I am DDD, NW50, MUFE F&B 46 cognac so I need highly pigmented colors to appear strongly on my face
So stayability and pigmentation are my primary focus. If ease and 'great brush' were my focus, then I would run from this eyeliner in 2 seconds flat. It is difficult to apply as the brush is very mediocre. Just use a different brush or complement the quirky brush that comes with it with an eyeliner brush. If you get it on your hands, your hands will be stained with black marks (see Amy Winehouse's hands in candids). If you mess up, you'll be straining with a Q-Tip and heavy-duty eyemakeup remover.
Before I found this, I used only high end waterproof liquid liners, particularly Mac's liquidlast. Liquidlast does not hold a candle to Wet N Wild's H2O. I do admit that it is a (very) high-maintenance product, so newbies to eyeliner beware. If I am in a hurry I just use L'Oreal's Lineur Intense.
as an FYI - I use Urban Decay's Primer Potion (UPP) as a base, this softens the look from looking too much like a sharpie (it has the tendency to do that if you swipe it on quickly).
If you need a deeply pigmented liquid liner that'll last for 8hours straight without smudging, this is the product for you. The downside is that you'll need: a very heavy eyemakeup remover, patience, a few extra minutes, and a spare eyeliner brush.
UPDATE: I rarely reach for this since I started using Wet N Wild's cream eyeliner in black. I use MAC's fluidline when I can't find the WnW brand - who would've thunk?
this eyeliner has a great formula--it out-wears anything i've tried to date. the color is dark, smooth and opaque. sadly, i am not overly fond of the long, skinny felt-tip applicator (i prefer a thin brush). i find it hard to work with.
Talk about waterproof, this stuff does not come off! It takes a lot of patience to remove, I find that cold cream usually does the job. I love that I can cry in the rain and still have a perfect line. The felt tip sucks though. I threw it away and replaced it with a liquid liner brush tip from an old bottle of Dior liquid liner instead. Perfect!
Pretty decent waterproof, black liquid liner. Solid black--easy to make thick, a little harder to make thin, but not impossible.Has a felt tip. A little runny, tho. I didn't like the felt tip of this liner, but I might just have to get used to it. I tried YSL's Eyeliner Noir, which has a felt tip, too, that's why I thought this felt tip would be the same. Uh, absolutely not. YSL was soo easy to put on (my first try!). But YSL isn't waterproof. I love that this one is waterproof. I have really watery eyes so it's nice knowing that my makeup is still there without having to run to check every 10 minutes. It takes about a minute or so to dry completely, so I recommend not doing any heavy blinking or it'll ruin your makeup. For $4, it's worth a try, but I wouldn't buy again just because I know there are better eyeliners, even if they're not waterproof.
I agree, it is definitely a very good, very black, waterproof liquid eyeliner, especially for the price, with great pigmentation, no fading, running, smudging or flaking. Yes, because it is designed to stay put, it does take a little extra effort to remove this, but isn't that is what you want for a product used on waterlines?
The consensus of reviewers appears to dislike the stiff felt tip. This tip, which comes to a very thin, sharp point, is designed to apply a very thin line, very precisely. I had no problem with this tip when tightlining; to me, a very precise, thin line is more desirable when doing this technique anyway. However, I do think the line it applies can be a bit harsh. Perhaps if I slightly smudge it a little, before it dries, with a very tapered, more flexible felt tip or smudger, if I can find such a thing...hmm...I'll have to test this theory and update later. What I didn't care for so much is the fact that the formulation is very glossy. I would rather my liner be matte for a more natural look. Perhaps slight smudging will help with this, too. I'll update as soon as I can.
This is readily available at most d/s cosmetics retailers at around $4.00 for a 0.17 fl oz bottle, and comes packaged inside a silver, thin cardboard box. Personally, I find this a little too harshly black and glossy for tightlining on me, but I am still giving it 4 lippies because this should work well for others, especially those with darker coloring. I will only repurchase if I find light smudging to be the answer to my complaints.
This is a very good waterproof liquid eyeliner especially for the price. After 10 hours of wear the product along my upper lash line was still as solid & fresh as when I initally applied. There was no fading, running, smudging or flaking. I also used this eyeliner to line my lower rims (waterline) and after 10 hours it still looked pretty darn good. There was some loss of color along the line but not enough that someone looking at you would notice. (I of course examined close up to see the results.) In my experience this wore as well along the waterline as Bobbi Brown or MAC cream eyeliners. The consistency of the liner itself is a little runny upon application but once it dries it stays put. I did have to work a little extra to get this off at the end of the day, but it really wasn't that difficult. I use EVOO for my mu remover and this did the trick without a lot of hassle. When liner the rim but sure to let it dry. Some of the liner will get in your eye as this is liquid, but I didn't find it irritating at all. You just have to be prepared for that. The pigmentation was great - this one is very black just as the name suggests. It comes in the standard liquid liner bottler which is fine. The one this I HATE about the packaging is the felt tip. I have never liked these felt tips. I just can't seem to get the hang of using them. (Guess it is a case of you can't teach an old dog new tricks.) So, I had a WnW Mega Liner in black and I just switched out the applicators. It worked perfectly and I got the results I wanted and couldn't get with the felt tip. The cost of this eyeliner is about $3.99 but I got mine BOGO so I actually paid about a $1.99. Not bad for good quality long lasting waterproof eyeliner. WnW is frequently on sale somewhere so I would suggest if you have doubts about the product for yourself, check the sale flyers and buy on sale.
