I’ve become ever so slightly obsessed with the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Collection after trying the Holiday Palettes. These are seriously amazing palettes for the price and have given me a completely new outlook on the brand and budget beauty. I can be a bit picky when it comes to makeup so it is saying something when I actually LIKE budget makeup.
Since trying and loving the ColorIcon Palettes I was determined to explore more of the line, my first stop, Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeliner Pencil.
A traditional pencil eyeliner for two bucks!
At two bucks I was willing to take a chance on this one. Can’t afford not to right?
It’s a pretty traditional eyeliner pencil in black, nothing special here. However, I’m always partial to a good black eyeliner so I was willing to try even though features and fanfare were not available here.
Props for the larger size. The pencil will set you back two bucks and features a very long design so you’re getting a good deal of pencil here for your buck. Color is a pigmented black however that’s about the extent of good.
Sadly, this tugs a fair bit and lacks a nice creamy formula. A liner that’s creamy and applies easily sans tugging and drama is a number one priority for me and this lacks that sadly.
Swatching this comes across nicely pigmented and dark however once on my eye I have to line and re-line to get good color pay off plus the tugging involved to get in place can prove irritating.
- Anyone super strapped for cash (there are way better options at the drugstore but none nearly as cheap so if you’re REALLY strapped for cash this might be an ok option).
- Anyone wanting an eyeliner that smudges easily, applies with minimal fuss, and just works (this pretty much fails all around).
I’ve honestly seen way better eyeliner options at my drugstore and this sadly isn’t one of the better ones. The price is very appealing however that doesn’t make up for the crummy formula. With my recent success with ColorIcon Palettes I was hopeful the eyeliner would be just as good but no luck here.
This one I don’t suggest.
Have you tried this eyeliner?
