In today’s post I’m going to be reviewing the Wet N Wild H2O proof liquid eyeliner and eye pencil! I got the eyeliner in brown/black and the pencil in bronze. Basically they’re meant to be the best waterproof make-up because they don’t move… ever. I put that to the test. I like my eyebrows to stay put all day and I’ve been looking for something a bit cheaper than the Bobbi Brown brow pencil for an everyday brow. Waterproof eyeliners have been around for longer so they have had more time to improve, so it made sense that a waterproof eyeliner was exactly what I needed for my brows!
This is what my brows looked like after I’d used the eyeliner; I think they looked a bit too dark for my normal preferences but this liquid eyeliner is unbeatable in terms of color payoff or ease of shaping (literally, this was so easy to use I didn’t make a single mistake with it)! Also it stayed put all day… and the next day. Even micellar water doesn’t get this off. That may or may not be a good thing for other people but I think that’s brilliant for my brows!
Now let’s look at the pencil:
I got it out the packaging and swatched it on my hand; it’s less brown than the brown/black shade of the liquid eyeliner:
I put it on my brows and hoped it would produce a more natural result than the eyeliner. I think it was a bit obvious in places but overall I think it was less dark so I guess it depends whether you think very dark brows are your thing or not. If so, the brown/black will be a better option:
I checked in again 8 hours later, after going out in the rain and coming back home, and my brows had faded a little, particularly at my nose, where I can’t get one brow to grow in at all, but where there are brow hairs, it’s stayed very well!
Conclision: The liquid eyeliner is definitely better at staying put, that stuff stays on my face for up to 2 days (even using Micellar water) which is what I want for my brows. If I could get the Bronze shade in the liquid eyeliner (it doesn’t ship here), I would be completely happy with it but it’s a little dark, so for day-to-day wear the pencil is good enough, but it’s not as budge/smudge proof as the Wet N Wild H20-proof liquid eyeliner. You can get the pencil here and the liquid eyeliner here on Amazon.com.
