Hi there! Long time no blog. Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Real life has had some hiccups along the way and it's also starting to get busy for me as the holiday season starts to come upon us. There are several reviews that I want to do and will do in the near future.
Today, I was going to do just a review of Wet N Wild Mega Liner but I decided to also do it as a comparison with my HG liner, K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner.
First of all, the one big difference is the price. Wet N Wild Mega Liner is only $3.99 here (will probably be cheaper on the continental U.S.) and K-Palette is around $15.99, depending on where you purchase it from. I bought the one pictured from iMomoko. It is a Limited Edition one because it is in the pink tubing. It normally comes in black tubing. The other difference is that there is a shaker mechanism in the tubing for K-Palette but none in Wet N Wild. I think that the shaker mechanism helps to keep the liquid fluid and flows better.
The saying that you get what you pay for holds true for this product. It was a disappointment for me in that the product does not come out evenly or nicely wet. It actually is a bit stiff and dry--kind of like a drying marker. It was also interesting that it didn't come out well because the tip of it is much thicker than the K-Palette.
If you work at it and layer it, then you'll get the kind of deep, dark lining that you would normally get with one swipe of K-Palette. I didn't want to work that much so after testing it out only that one time, I went over it with my K-Palette so I can't really review how well it lasts over a period of time.
I find that the Japanese-made pen liners work very well while the American made ones, I do not like. I had also tried Revlon's Color Stay liner and it didn't work well for me. While Physician's Formula may not be a Japanese brand, their pen liners are made in Japan and I find that it works out nicely too.
I'm going to add a bonus NOTD here. I normally do not do my nails on a regular basis because I can't seem to paint my nails and be patient enough for it to dry. I always end up smudging it. I also love how Konad works but can't seem to do it either. Thanks to Incoco, I am able to do manicures with nice designs. This is my current manicure and I really like this design and coloring.
I know that Sally Hansen has nail polish strips like Incoco and I've used it once but didn't really test it out well. I'll do a review and comparison in the near future too.
