Review: Wet n Wild Mega Liner in Turquoise

This is an updated repost from my original blog on Tumblr

I picked up this lovely over in Washington state, after the pretty turquoise bottle practically jumped at me and clawed at my wallet.

These liquid liners from makeup-lover-on-a-shoestring-budget fave Wet n Wild also come in Black, Purple, Blue, Brown, and Dark Brown. I am an absolute sucker for turquoises and teals, so Turquoise was an obvious choice for me. Aside from Blue, I wasn't too interested in the other shades since 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?

For $2.99 USD, this liner has hit the mark on all counts. Turquoise is bright with a metallic 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.

Long story short, this liner is an easy and gorgeous way make your eyes pop. Don't be surprised if you catch people staring at your eyes when you're wearing it! It's an awesome drugstore product with a ridic pricetag.

A long while after buying Turquoise, I tried Blue and Purple. Sad to say, they didn't impress and are totally skippable. The pigmentation wasn't great and they weren't metallic like Turquoise. Well, at least they were cheap.

 Drugstores: ~$2.99 USD / ~$4.79 CAD
