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!
So some of the things that I look for in a good gel liner:
- 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.
- Consistency – it should be creamy, glides easily regardless of the brush that I use. And it should dry or set fairly quickly.
- 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.
- 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.
I must say that I am impressed! This deserves the hype that it receives. Nice, very dark black, glides easily and it dries to a matte, shine-free finish.
I wore it all day, on my upper lashline and my lower waterline. I did not get any flaking at all. After 8 hours it was still going strong. There was a little fading on my lower waterline, but it was not messy or super smudgy.
I would rank this right up there with M.A.C.’s Blacktrack Fluidline or Inglot’s #77. I still that Inglot has the blackest shade, but this is certainly dark enough! Get this in your stash!
Cost: US$3.99, available at the Wet ‘n’ Wild website, wnwbeauty.com or your local drugstore.
