Review: Wet N Wild Megaliner Liquid Eyeliner in Black

While at the drugstore, I also picked up a bottle of Wet N Wild's Megaliner.  Liquid liner is my first choice for opaque, clean lines and at $2.99 apiece, I just couldn't resist.

I like the long handle and brush tip because I feel like I have more control and am able to make smoother, more precise lines.  My only gripe is that I wish the brush tip were just a touch finer.  But for the price, I can't complain.

I started with my eye already made up.  I did a simple look with outer V shading in neutral bronze/browns.  Here I'm using Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy, Chopper, and Smog along with some smudged black pencil liner.  This is a really great work/daytime look.  Let me know if you guys would like a tutorial. :D

Using the Megaliner, I sweep a winged line along my upper lid and trace a tapered line halfway in from the outer corner of my bottom lid for depth and drama.

I curl my lashes and add mascara to finish.

From prior experience, I know that this eyeliner isn't waterproof and it may smudge a little after over 8 hours of wear.  The formula applies very smoothly, however, and doesn't crack or flake once it's dry.  As long as you're not using it in the pool or sweating up a storm in the gym, this is a great alternative to more expensive liquid liners that could cost you more than 5 times as much.  I think there's a waterproof version too, which I'd like to try.  Stay posted for an upcoming review on it.


  1. I recently bought this liner too! I like it, but I'm not very good with the application... I always get some products on my lashes. :(

    And very sadly, I don't know how to make a nice winged line... So, a big fail from my part.

  2. Hi Jennifer! I actually get some product on my lashes too when I apply liquid liner. If I want to avoid that, I use a bent brush, like the Sonia Kashuk bent eyeliner brush that you can get at Target. But I don't worry too much about it for the most part because applying mascara covers it up anyway.

    I'm thinking about doing a video tutorial for winged eyeliner, so stay posted if you're interested. :)
