Bargain gel liner….that works! Wet 'n' Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner review

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

I live for black liner – pencil, liquid, gel –  whatever.  And the darker the better.

I’ve heard a lot of people talk about the Wet n’ Wild Mega Eye Crème Eyeliner.  So I picked it up at CVS and paid $3.99.  Great price!

Wet ‘n’ Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner with brush

So some of the things that I look for in a good gel liner:

  1. Colour –  I like a richly pigmented gel liner and if it is black, it needs to be super jet, sooty black.  No off-black, grey-black for me.
  2. Consistency – it should be creamy, glides easily regardless of the brush that I use.  And it should dry or set fairly quickly.
  3. Durability –  My gel liner has to be long lasting, make it true a workout without running too much.  Especially on my waterline.  And it can’t flake as it dries or makes it through its 6th hour of wear.
  4. Price –  Eventually all gel liners will dry out and crack.  Constantly opening that jar and exposing it to air, they become thickened.  So I won’t want to spend an exorbitant amount on a liner.

I picked up the liner in Black and it comes with a mini synthetic angled brush, which is actually not bad at all.  It’s easy to apply this liner with this brush. It’s firm and wide enough for a newbie eyeliner user to use.
