Ode to Wet n Wild Coloricon Brow & Eye Liners

I’ve dug myself in deep this time

For instead of a usual review

I’ve decided to write in rhymes

Sit with me, I’ll walk you through

Left to right: White, Calling Your Buff, Taupe of the Morning, Simma Brown Now, Pretty in Mink, Dark Brown, Black Black

Wet n Wild has captured my heart

The brow & eyeliners have stolen it

Plethoras of browns, while hard to tell apart

For day to night, they are not unfit

Yes, they do all they claim, they’re quite smart

For your brows, they’ll never quit

On the waterlines, they’re a work of art

For hours they won’t move a whit

Left to right: White, Calling Your Buff, Taupe of the Morning, Simma Brown Now, Pretty in Mink, Dark Brown, Black Black

While these $1 gems have their ups, they’ve some downs

Reapplying to the waterline is a natural must

Some colours are too similar, like the browns

And use lightly on the brow, or scream with disgust

Soft and gentle as can be, there’ll be no pained sounds

But maybe a bit too soft, to be just

So you’ve sat through this all, what a feat

We’re at the end, it’s almost near

In all, cruelty free and cheap

These are quite a nice treat

If you have no fear of smears

And need a nude line to feign some sleep

Or brows to make you say, “that’s sweet”

To your local dollar store, the way is clear

Lordy! I dunno what I was thinking. Guess my reviews of Wet n Wild stuff are already close to odes in reverence, might as well make the full leap. People who know one and a half things about poetry will be reading this in a rage, that’s for sure. I don’t know anything about poetry.

Calling Your Buff on lower waterline, Black Black on upper waterline. Simma Brown Now and Taupe of the Morning in brows. Jeez, check out my uneven eyebrows! My own fault, not the pencils.

If you don’t care to read the above, let me sum these up for you: long lasting, a little soft, don’t have a budge-proof dry down time and will smudge if you rub them, but will work great for brows and waterlines. It smudges right off my lids though, because I have hooded and oily lids. For the waterline, I never use the Q-Tip trick (where you run a q-tip over your waterline before applying eyeliner there), but I suspect if you did, this eyeliner would last all day there. Without it, I find it lasts for a few hours before I need to reapply… pretty good for a $1 liner!

Black Black all over eyes and lower waterline.

As for colours, Black Black is more of a charcoal, Pretty in Mink and Dark Brown are almost identical, with Dark Brown being a touch warmer, Simma Brown Now is a dark warm brown, Taupe of the Morning would work great for blonde brows, Calling Your Buff is a fantastic nude eyeliner, and White is just white.

  2. Dude! You are the bomb! Seriously I think you have the most creative blog out of all the blogs I follow.

    Also, your eyeliner game is strong! That last picture is fantastic!

    I feel your pain on the hooded eye + eyeliner front. The transfer problems are real!

    Awesome post as always 🙂
