This stout, emollient pencil needs regular sharpening. It has a very smooth, creamy texture that glides on, but because the creaminess remains, fading and smudging occur shortly after application. Each shade is infused with glitter and it tends to separate from the color as the liner breaks down during wear. This inexpensive pencil is OK if you want a messy, smudged, morning-after eye-makeup design, but it’s terrible for day-to-day or evening glamour makeup.
Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.
