Wet ‘n’ Wild MegaChrome Eyeliners ($2.99 for 0.04 oz.) and Wet ‘n’ Wild H2O Proof Eye Pencil ($2.99 for 0.03 oz.) were both products that did not work for me. Both formulas smudged terribly on me after less than an hour of wear–since they gave me raccoon eyes so quickly, I went through all four in a day, but nothing lasted for more than an hour. All four pencils were also a bit hard; I would definitely recommend wearing down the tip on the back of your hand before using them, but they’re still not overly soft, so they can tug a bit.
Pigmentation was also problematic; it was decent in the MegaChrome Eyeliners but dismal in the H2O Proof Eye Pencil. They tend to apply patchy and need another pass or two (or three…) to get the right color intensity and evenness. For a waterproof formula, Denim Chrome couldn’t even last long enough to make it to a water test!
Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!
