Review of Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Pencil - Black by Christinaann5
Well for how incredibly cheap this liner is its pretty dang great! i have bought & owned these WNW liners since i first started wearing makeup in 6th grade & its always been great so onto the review....
=PRICE & AVAILABILITY=
These liners are super cheap or dirt cheap as the ratings say..This huge liner will only cost you $1. You can find these in most drugstores like Walgreens, CVS, & Rite Aid as well as Target & Walmart. They have use to come in a cardboard packaging but have since been dwindling done since they have reformulated these for their Coloricon Pencils so ill review the older version which is the eyeliner in Black. The Coloricon pencil is also $1 & is a big improvement from this one. Def alot better but this is a pretty decent pencil & its super cheap
=SHADE FORMULA PERFORMANCE=
The older version is a bit harder than the new Coloricon pencils but they're not so hard that nothing shows up. Its def black, not super dark black. Its smooth not super smooth but it goes on decently. You may have to work a bit on the waterline & lashline. Its formula is pretty good & i use to use it everyday to line all around my eye. Its staying power is around a few hours, ill give it around 3 hrs on the water line which is pretty good and around 5 hrs on the lash lines before it starts fading. I hate to say bad things but id def suggest checking out the newer version since its far better. I do have this older pencil & do use it since its huge pencil & it does work. I like using it for my lower lash line since it stays put awhile esp if you top it with a powder shadow. Primer also helps.
This pencil is sooo big & long. Its longer than most of my pencils (this one & the NYC pencils are so long so they stand out amongst other liners) You def get your moneys worth. It is a standard pencil with a kohl liner. It fits in standard pencil sharpeners so no special sharpener needed. It sharpens nicely, no stray wood pieces. I love how much you get for the price. It will last forever & ever. The logo/writing is in metallic writing. The pencil is colored in whatever shade the liner is. So you can tell which one you are grabbing. It has a see thru plastic lid that slides on & fits good. Its not loose or falling off. This pencil is great for slipping in the purse or makeup bags. I have had mine forever & never think ill get thru it.
Overall, this is a pretty great liner but i believe if you see this which i think they are slowly dwindling out of most stores, maybe you should pick up the new Coloricon liners since they are far better in formula & performance but i def like this & it was great. I like it- a standard pencil liner. Its more of a kohl liner. Its a bit harder than some but can def be blended for smoky eyes. I love the black even though its not the darkest black, its great for everyday. Overall a pretty great pencil liner.
