Jar Packaging:Yes
Tested on animals:No

This gel eyeliner comes packaged in a screw-top glass jar along with a small, useless brush that you’re better off tossing out. Assuming you already have a proper eyeliner brush, you can count on smooth and precise (albeit wet) application that sets to a satin finish. Although this product claims to be waterproof, and it initially performed well, after a few hours out on the town it began showing signs of wear by cracking and flaking. At the end of the night, what was left of it came off easily with eye-makeup remover. Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner is available in two colors, Black and Eggplant, the former of which has a slight shimmer to it.

Brand Overview

Wet 'n' Wild At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive, good tinted moisturizer with sunscreen; some attractive bronzing powders; mostly good eyeshadow and lipstick options.

Weaknesses: Unimpressive concealers; large assortment of average to poor eyelining products; the mascaras do little to impress; some lip products suffer from the inclusion of irritants; the makeup brushes.

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.
