I picked up this lovely over in Washington state.
Although some drugstores in Canada carry Wet n Wild, I haven’t seen this particular product around here, sadly. These liquid liners come in Black, Purple, Blue, Brown, Dark Brown, and my pick, Turquoise. I love turquoises and teals, so Turquoise was an obvious choice for me. With the exception of Blue, I think the other shades don’t jump out at me as much because I already have gel liners in those colours.
Here’s what the product page has to say about the Mega Liners:
Easy-to-control liquid liner has a fine, flexible brush for precise application. Rich, fluid formula dries fast and stays put to subtly enhance or dramatically define.
How did the product and testing hold up to Wet n Wild’s claims?
I gotta say, for $2.99 USD, this liner has hit the mark on all counts. Turquoise is bright with a metallic sort of finish and makes my eyes pop.
I used to be a liquid liner pro as a teenager and worked that black Maybelline liner. I’ve probably lost most of my liquid liner powers since I discovered MAC Fluidline, but I was able to line my upper lashline and make a wing easily. The brush is very thin and indeed flexible and easy to use. A very light touch deposits a smooth line of colour.
It also dries quickly; I don’t find myself needing to keep my eye closed while I frantically hand-fan it to dry (ahem). Afterwards, it stays put with no creasing, fading or smudging. I’ve fallen asleep on the couch and woken up six hours later to find my liner still perfectly in place! Despite all this, it comes off easily with cleanser and makeup remover like any regular liner.
I wore this liner again by itself last night and Andy kept staring at my eyes o_o I think he likes bright and colourful makeup like this.
- long-lasting and crease-free
- ridiculously cheap
- easy to remove
- gorgeous colour
- thin & flexible brush is easy to work
if you live in Canada you may have to go over the border for it
I’m not sure if the other shades have a metallic look to them like Turquoise, but this colour is an easy way to make your eyes pop.
The only con I could think of was that Canadian girls might have to work a little harder to find it, but other than that it’s an awesome drugstore find with a ridic pricetag.
Edit (Sept 12/10): okay, I went to Zellers and Wal-mart and the eyeliners were there, so now there are absolutely no cons I can think of. No excuses now girls, get on it!
