And now, for the part the people came to see! This week's review is on a Wet n' wild product. Yet again, as far as drugstore products go, Wet n' wild is one of the cheaper brands, however they do provide some great products from what I hear and I want to look into their line further. Seeing as summer is coming around, bringing warm weather with it, I decided to get myself a waterproof liquid eyeliner. I was looking around, and stumbled on the H2O proof liquid liner by Wet n' wild. It was cheap, so I decided to give it a shot.
I have to admit, I'm not super impressed by this eyeliner. It works and it stays longer than a regular liquid liner, I'll give it that much. When it comes to staying power, this eyeliner is pretty impressive, I was able to rub as much as I wanted and it didn't budge, but by the end of the day, it was starting to flake off and it didn't look at all as good as when I applied it. Yes, I know, most of the time that's to be expected if you put it on early and wear it all day long, but I mean, it was flaking a lot more than usual, and it was actually a little bit faded in places. The second test was just how "H2O proof" this liquid liner really was, and this time, I was pleasantly surprised. I had to drench the eyeliner under running water and smudge the heck out of it with my finger before it even started to get fuzzy edges. Impressive? I think so.
Next up is how well this sucker comes off, which was actually a disappointment. I had to rub pretty hard with my best makeup remover and a cotton bud before it came off, and once it did, it came off in these odd little flakes. As far as removing goes, it's not as easy as it should be. At all. It comes off when you want it to stay, and stays when you want it off! Well, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration.
Finally is application. The applicator on this eyeliner is really good, it's a little fatter than what you might find on some felt tipped applicators, however it's really nicely pointed on the end of the nib and it doesn't flop about like some, which I like and it makes application very easy. The cap and handle on this product is also great during application, as it is long and comfortable to hold.
Finally, the pros and cons of this product:
product is richly pigmented
application is easy
doesn't stay put as well as it should (flaky)
is difficult to remove
As I come to the end of the review, despite some of the great things about this product in application and pigmentation, the actual cosmetic itself and it's quality is what matters, so I'd have to say this isn't a product I would recommend due to it's couple of faults. There may only be a couple, however they are pretty major factors in the quality of this cosmetic.
