Can you believe this is my first creme eyeliner? Yeah, I find it hard to belive as well. I turned to Make Up Alley's Review 'center' when I was browsing through all the Wet n Wild products and this one caught my attention. I didn't own anything like it, I'm mostly into eye make up and there were some really good reviews on the MUA - I had to get it.
Before I start talking about the eyeliner, I must say something about Wet n Wild products in general. The packaging bites! I'm not talking about the plastic container which holds the product, I'm talking about the outer packaging. You need a full soldier's equipment to get to the product and you're destined to damage some nails in the process. I've experienced it with the eyeliner, lipstick and eyeshadows. At least I know nobody opened the packaging before me, right? Small scissors, olfa knife and tweezers are my must-have tools when it comes to troublesome packaging.
This is what you get after all the 'opening the packaging' science. A cute rounded (alienesque looking) pot with eyeliner and an angled brush.
I'm gonna say it loud and clear - the brush sucks and it's already in the trash. It's far to stiff and harsh, especially for a creamy and soft eyeliner like this one. I can't tell you how surprised I was by this product. I thought I was gonna make a mess and that it will smudge and look terrible ... but I was wrong.
I used my Essence eyeliner brush (the one with the blue bristles) to apply the cream eyeliner (it's not perfect, but still way better than the WnW brush).
The eyeliner doesn't have a special scent, it's very soft and really black. I applied it to the back of my hand to do the smudge test. I thought it was gonna make a black mess, but when it sets and dries, it's actually quite smudge proof. This won't give you panda eyes, but rather fade if you rub your eyes. I wouldn't suggest doing that with your make up on, but that's good to know, right? This cream eyeliner has made a believer out of me. I think I need to get some more ...
