I love these pencils, they are 96 freaking cents, come in the basic colors, and *gasp* are actually the length of pencils!!! Some of you guys I saw complaining about how hard they were, yeah the first time i took the super crazy pointy end to my eye, it did hurt, so I drew 2 strokes lightly on my hand to dull it and it was just fine. I think that first bit is just maybe waxed over or something to seal it off? After sharpening them I haven't had that problem at all.
The color was bold, the application was soft and smooth, and it lasts pretty well. If I am up to mischief all day I use the mac primer, I had the green on today for 7 hours and it was great~!
UPDATE: They were good for a hot minute, but the pulling at my eyes and inconsistent gummy color happend out of nowhere. No thanks, I am so sad I am not as happy as I was at the beginning.

This eyeliner pulled out a couple of lashes from my lower lid. too hard.

I bought the light blue and green pencils. Just threw them both in the trash-can. They are just too hard to use on delicate skin,
They tug and pull and skip. Not worth the 99 cents I payed for each. Skip this brand of pencils. I also tried the waterproof eyeliner and blue eyeshadow in a tube - all junk.

This pencil is a little hard for use around my eyes, so I don't think I will repurchase. I still gave it a 3, though, because the color (gray) was true, and the price was great for experimentation. I would definitely recommend their eye pencils to people who are looking to try new colors before committing to a more expensive brand.

I'm not too upset since this is so cheap but it kills my eyes! It's SO sharp! What the heck?! I think I prefer the felt tip kind of applicator!

The pencil I have is brown and has a smudger end to it. The pencil is very dry and hard to apply, not as bad as the Estee Lauder pencil I recently reviewed, but I won't be buying it again.

Just yesterday I was trying to find a cheap eyeliner that I could use temporarily because my Clinique blackened taupe eyeliner had run out. I had heard of Wet and Wild eyeliner before so I bought the charcoal color. Although this pencil's "lead" wasn't as creamy as Clinique's, it was surprisingly good for $1. The color was great because it wasn't as hard as black but it wasn't a grayish color either. The only problem with this pencil is that it is so long that I had trouble using it in front of my mirror (I'm really nearsighted) and the cap was just so cheap I'm expecting it to break anytime now. Hmm, maybe I'll break the pencil in half...

Wet and Wild has come out with H2O Proof pencil. I tried Blazing Brown. This is not a flat brown,its a sparkly bronze. It stays in place after you smudge it and looks like MAC's eye pencil quality. 1.99. Its a tiny pencil with a sponge smudger at the end.It's a third of the length and twice the price of their basic pencils,but the quality is totally amazing.This is a very creamy pencil, but not to the point of breaking off while you line. Incidently, if you want a nice point on the creamy pencils,put them in the freezer a half hour before you sharpen them,and you will have a nice point and less junk in your sharpener!

Great bargain buy! I don't have any problems or compaints about these pencils. They have always worked well for me, they are easy to find (just about any drug store) and they are dirt cheap! There is not a huge selection of color choices but you can always get fancy colors elsewhere and save money on your stock colors with these.

There was some variation in the packaging at Wal-Mart (which had an impressive, extensive selection): the clearly "new" one, with rounded bottoms & caps & a yellow-green label touting new rich creme formula (something like that anyway); the one with the same label, but flat caps & bottoms; and the flat pencils without the label. Given that there were 2, possibly 3, different formulations, it's no wonder there are such mixed reviews and descriptions on the product! BTW, for anyone else frustrated by the odd length, what I did was get my dad to chop the pencil in half with his meat cleaver, so now I have 2 small pencils (for home and purse!).
Anyway, I bought the newest-looking one I could find, in 659C - Turquoise. Right now, I just applied it over eyeshadow, so right above/on the lash line. Maybe it's just the location, but it's still there, although faded. No migration to the undereye for once! The liner deposits a lot (it's very creamy), and I suppose you do need to apply as much as possible the 1st time in order to get it to still be on after fading. It's pretty noticeable even right now, though.
I'm very impressed; I've tried other cheap pencils - Bonne Bell's not too bad, but more like a 4H art pencil, and NYC was just plain HOPELESS (no colour whatsoever!). I plan to go back and stock up on both basics and 'wild' (yippee!) colours, and wish I had found this liner before wasting money on those two.
PS: even more changes in this new formulation was the inscription of "Not tested on animals".

I have this in #655 which is a soft medium grey color. I like how soft and pretty it is, nothing too harsh. Easily applies, great color payoff. Easy to apply thin lines of it too. Lasting quality is okay. It is great on my waterline. Its only 99 cents too, so pick it up. You've got nothing to lose. I want these in other colors too!

Goes on greasy and stays that way all day. Ends up a smeared mess within minutes. I gave it two stars because it is cheap. I guess in this case you get what you pay for. Thumbs down!

I've been using W&W pencils for over a decade as my eyebrow pencil of choice, and although I've strayed I always come back to these. I use the blonde pencil to fill in sparse spots in my eyebrows and it's the only blonde (or any other color for that matter) that matches my color exactly and I'm not even a blonde, I'm a medium/dark brunette w/gold undertones. I think they've changed the recipe or something lately, because the pencils seem waaaaay softer, and they're almost too soft to use for eyebrows. Also the color I've always used seems darker now and orangey, so I took off one lippie for that. I'm hoping I just got a weird pencil though. lol

Maybe it's the fact that I've been using this brand since I was in Jr. High, but I really like these pencils and not to mention they are super cheap so I dont have any problem replacing them. I have tried other brands here and there, none of them i really fell in love with. They go on really smooth (I can't stand eyepencils that tug!) and leave a nice, consistant line. No, they really don't last very long at all (I put powder over it, it keeps the top on longer. But the bottom- forget about it- you'll need to touch it up) - but reapplying is easy and at $0.99 what would you expect? Since they are so cheap I pretty much have one everywhere I could need one.
I LOVE the automatic pencil! I'm on my 4th one. (They run out on me fast) I love the packaging! It's got a smudger on the end to create a smoky effect and the when you pull it out, theres a sharpener inseide!! (I didnt figure this out for a long time - it was such a wonderful suprise!) This way you can get a tinner line, and keep the pencil clean (powder always rubs off on it)
I also love that it comes in lots of colors - it's the pefect way to complete any look! I have about 4 different colors. And they are MUCH better then the other brands at this price (wild & crazy, jordana, ect)
so to sum it up - they aren't great, but great qualtiy for the price. However, lately i have been thinking of giving other brands a try again. . .

I bought this pencil in mink a couple of months ago. It's a really gorgeous color. Kind of a greyish brownish almost black. It's exactly the color i was hoping to get in my other black-brown eyeliners (maybelline defining liner in brownish black is red brown, not brown black). But the big problem is the "rich creamy texture". It's entirely too creamy. It's really soft and doesn't last at all. It makes me sad that such a perfect color is wasted.

I'm surprised someone mentioned this as being too dry. I bought a brown one and it was so soft that I could not even sharpen it properly. And, when I used it, the point just bent over. Did leave some color, but also left a bunch of clumps. May be dirt cheap, but still not worth it.

I used this in Real Red when I used to wear red liner. It hardley showed up and I had to push on it really hard to get anything to show up. Its a really crappy pencil and it seems like theres more wax than there is the actual color. I'm not going to ever buy this stuff again.

I guess you get what you pay for. This liner is really cheap, but really suck.

This is the dryest pencil in the world. Don't buy it, even if it is only .99 cents. It wont do anything and could probably damage your skin.
