Last night I was organizing my makeup drawer and realized I have more eyeliner than I probably need. Then I got the bright idea to do some comparisons!
This is my little collection. Just like when I shared my polish collection, I realized I've got some eyeliners missing, particularly my favorite Cover Girl liquid.
All of these liners came from Sally Beauty Supply except for the Wet n Wild. Click on the links to each color to be taken to the site where you can purchase it.
From left to right: Femme Couture Eye Drama Glitter Pencil in Purple ($3.99), Femme Couture Eye Drama Liquid Eyeliner in Wicked and then Purple Potion ($6.99), and finally Palladio Herbal Eyeliner Pencil in Black ($3.29). Palladio also makes an AMAZING rice powder that I use for a setting powder.
I was honestly disappointed with those glitter liners. I expected a better coverage than what was offered. If you layer it over another liner the result is much better, but still leaves much to be desired. For the price I expected some disco ball eyes.
Each of these liners is very easy to get off with makeup remover. I used my DHC Deep Cleansing Oil to remove it and the only thing that was left behind was the glitter.
These are all of my Wet N Wild liners. The Coloricon is a great pencil that you can use for both brows and eyes. It goes on extremely well and lasts if you use a good eyeshadow powder to set it.
The next is their H2O Proof is boss. It goes on well and dries fast. I did both a thin and thick line to show the versatility of the product.
I can tell you that it takes a lot of effort to get the H20 liquid off. I used the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil again and I had to scrub hard to get it, and it still didn't get every little bit off. That dark little smudge that's left on my hand? It's still there even after a shower and washing my hands a few times today. That liner is a powerhouse product.
What I've learned from this?
Never let anyone make fun of you for using Wet n Wild products because they are cheap and in drugstores. Their quality has improved vastly over the years and it shows in that eyeliner! Wet n Wild isn't just for teenagers learning to use makeup for the first time anymore!
My eyes are my favorite feature, so I love to collect eyeliner and play up my eyes as much as possible.
