I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE PENCILS!!
PRO: The color goes on nice, smooth, and bright. Good quality for price.
CON: If you rub your eyes they will smear, I recommend using a primer.
After purchasing another brand of thick shadow pencils and being horribly disappointed with the amount of pigment, the staying power, the crease-resistance, and heat resistance that they offered with a high price tag, I decided to try a cheaper brand. This is how I came across the Wet n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencil in 133 Techno.
The consistency of this product is amazing, and for a creme/cream eye shadow, it holds up well against both heat and creasing. My eyelids are not super smooth, and after attempting to use creme shadows in the past I found them impossible. Wet n Wild is a name that I am super familiar with, having grown up in the 90s when their nail polishes were all the rage! Anyway, the pigment in this pencil is outrageous! The more expensive pencil that I had initially purchased left a very light, shimmery purple despite being advertised as being a deep, rich shimmery purple, but when I tried the Wet n Wild pencil, it gave me that awesome, deep purple I was looking for. I was very impressed that a cheaper brand beat out the more expensive, and pleasantly surprised!
If you're looking for rich colour, easy application, (I mean, what is easier than just running a fat pencil over your lids and boom! Done!), crease-resistant, heat-resistant, affordable creme shadow, this is the way to go. The pencil itself as far as length compared to other brands is much smaller, roughly 1/3 to 1/2 the size, but if you think about the coverage that the other brands offer compared to this pencil, you'd be using the first third of the larger pencil just to get something close to the depth of colour that you get with one pass of this pencil, so it works out in the end in my opinion. They come in a great range of colours, so if you're into bright, look at me eye colour, give Wet n Wild a try!
These jumbo sticks are fairly new. They caught my eye and i decided to pick them up. I have the blue one and let me tell you, it is so smooth like butter. It is so pigmented, has such a nice finish, to it and it blends so well. It doesn't come with a lot of product but for the price, you get what you pay for. I love them and I'm definitely going to pick up some other colours.
