Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Liner Swatches, Photos & Review

Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Liner

“Paging MAC Blacktrack, paging MAC Blacktrack, you have a serious competitor!”

I have been a fan of MAC Blacktrack for years now. It’s the #1 gel/creme liner I use. I rarely even bother checking other black ones out I like it so much. That is until Wet n Wild sent me their Mega Eyes Creme Liner to try.

This creme liner comes in the colors Black and Eggplant and it’s waterproof.

It comes in a UFO shaped container, which is kind of an added bonus for a nerd like me ;D. It also comes with a little brush for application. I don’t really think much of the brush though. I normally don’t like using angled brushes to apply my liner. I have a very small, thin synthetic one from Sephora that has THE perfect stiffness/giveness to apply creme liners. In fact that reminds me I must review it for you guys it’s that good.

ANYWAY moving on – – this liner is extra, extra, extra black and creamy. So fabulous.

I mean isn’t that BLACK? Jet black. Black as the night. Black as coal. Black as my heart. Ok enough, you get the point. :)

It’s dark and extremely pigmented. It’s creamy as hell too, spreads out so easily and dries nicely.

I have worn this a few times on my upper and lower waterlines and it stays on REALLY well. Hours and hours without tearing off, which always happens eventually with any liner for me. But it lasts longer on my waterlines than Blacktrack for sure. In fact it stays on SO well that it can be a bit tricky to remove. I use the Almay Liquid Makeup Remover (the one you have to shake up to mix) and it works pretty well.


This is a huge hit for me for sure. I can honestly say I don’t feel any need to buy Blacktrack again. Not to mention that one is $15.00 for 0.1 oz whereas this is $2.99 for 0.3 oz. HELLO!

UPDATE on September 12, 2011: I retract loving this liner as much as I thought I did. Sadly, only a couple weeks after opening it, it dried up and shrank back from the sides of the container. It’s no longer as easy to work with and not as creamy. Disappointing to say the least!

Availability: Drugstores

Pricing: $2.99

    I picked up one of these awhile back and it was no where near creamy. Is it possible I picked ip an old one that had dried out? I’d like to pick ip the eggplant and I wish they made a dark brown version.

    • July 27, 2011

      Yup, my eggplant one was dry too.. Strange!

      • July 27, 2011

        Hi Viola,

        First off I LOVE your site I have to say :) And that sucks your eggplant one was dry :( I wonder if they have old ones in stores or something?

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi MDH,

      Aww man that sucks! I could have been old for sure. :(

    • July 27, 2011

      I wonder if you can add a touch of water to the brush and work it into the liner?

  • July 27, 2011

    I think I just found my new fave gel liner………

  • July 27, 2011

    Oooooh. This looks GREAT–I’ve always thought about Wet n Wild as more of a “kid” makeup brand but with all the excellent reviews of all of their palettes and this coming out lately, it’s making me reconsider. I’m gonna have to pick this up! Thanks for the review!

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi Melissa,

      Definitely not a kids brand anymore! The last year they have really come out with some amazing stuff. :)

      • July 31, 2011

        I actually couldn’t find this in my local (very large!) CVS or Walgreens, but your review is so persuasive I ordered it online! I’m excited to see your brush review, too–I picked up a Maybelline gel liner that I really like (and it has a fairly useful brush) but now that I’ve fallen in love with gel liners, I want them in EVERY COLOR and EVERY BRUSH and OW MY WALLET. You have made me fall in love with a product I thought I would be too clumsy to use.

    I picked up my first cream eye liner recently. It’s ELF in Coffee and I’ve loved it so far. It came with a similar brush, which is the kind I’d always used to apply eye shadow as liner. Now I’m excited to see what kind of brush you use when you review it!

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi Jen K,

      I have heard good things about the ELF liners but have yet to try them.

    By far the best black cream liner I have tried…I am in love with it.I have tried many high end brand liners before, and none of them stays in my water like like the wet n’ wild one. Plus as you mentioned, it is the blackest black there is!!!….and dirt cheap too!!! what can be better than that???! 😀 lol.

    P.D I loooove your blog! I read it every single day.

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi Eva Sofia,

      Thanks! Yes agreed it is really good especially for the price!

  • July 27, 2011

    Just wanted to mention that there seems to be a general concensus that the black color is a lot creamier than the eggplant :/. It’s unfortunate because I want an eggplant colored eyeliner too :(. Then again I think this has parabens and I’m trying to weed it out of my makeup so I can see it as a good thing :).

  • July 27, 2011

    OH I LOVE THIS STUFF! BEST EVER! Easy to use…goof proof and STAYS! I have been singing the praises of this stuff for a long time.

  • July 27, 2011

    I tried the black one a whileee ago and I remember loving it for my lashlines, but not so much for my waterline.
    I will have to give it another go because my smashbox one I got in a kit (for 10 dollars on clearance at sephora, I was shocked) is almost dead. Will see!

  • July 27, 2011

    no transfer on upper eyelid??? if not–WANT. my blacktrack is pretty much dried out i fink. i’ve used around half. that shit lasts forever.

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi Liz,

      I line upper and lower so hard for me to tell…

  • July 27, 2011

    I’ve never done eyeliner on my waterline… Do you think you could do some kind of tutorial? I’m fairly new to makeup. Thanks!

  • July 27, 2011

    I have yet to try this one, however I have tried Black Radiance’s Continuous Creme Eyeliner it costs around $5 and it was the best liner ever! I have not seen it recently in stores it was creamy, pigmented, long lasting, and cheap. I may give this one a go if I can’t find the Black Radiance one.

    • July 27, 2011

      Black Radiance & WnW are made by the same company – the eyeliner is the same product, just different colors.

  • July 27, 2011

    I always see these and have wondered about them. Now I know I need to give them a try!

  • July 27, 2011

    I actually actively *hate* MAC’s Blacktrack. I feel like people give it a pass and a false HG status just because it’s MAC. I purchased one when they first came out and the black is more like a dark grey, it was necessary to build, and the jar dried out suuuper fast.

    After trying Wet n’ Wild’s black gel liner I don’t know why anyone would fork over the cash for MAC’s again. It’s so impossibly black, creamy, applies well, and stays put. It’s my staple black gel liner. I find myself reaching more for liquid liners than gel, but still, it’s there on the off chance I need it. And (8?) months later it’s holding on to its texture better than the Blacktrack which was unusable in two months.

    Thanks for bringing this one in to the light, VV, it deserves a good mention. :)

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi Sara,

      Mine dried out fairly quickly also compared to some others I have used actually.

  • July 27, 2011

    Kelly, leave it to you to blend the use of UFOs and a black heart into a post so smoothly. :)

    I use this and really love it. The eggplant is just as rich in purple as this one is in black.

    I don’t use the brush either. This one is a bit too wee.

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi Kimberly,

      Haha 😉

  • July 27, 2011

    i tried this liner & it didn’t work for me at all. :( it went on smooth & creamy but after one night at work in my college’s kitchen, it was almost completely gone.

    • July 27, 2011

      Hi Julia,

      What a bummer! What has worked for you?

      • July 27, 2011

        i’m still searching! maybelline gel eyeliner is far from perfect but it’s the best drugstore product i’ve used. i’ve basically given up on drugstore stuff, though– i’m going to try stila & then mac for a liquid or gel liner that lasts. working in a kitchen is the ultimate test!

  • July 27, 2011

    This one is one of my favorites! I also stopped purchasing Blacktrack. However, it’s a hit or miss, some of them have gone old and the store sells them. If you find one that is dry take it back for an exchange because when they haven’t dried out, they are FANTASTIC.

  • July 27, 2011

    I checked 3 diff drugstores and couldnt find it:(

  • July 28, 2011

    I LOVE everything wet and wild that I’ve tried.

  • July 28, 2011

    I love how these affordable brands are coming out with gel liner! I recently bought 2 gel liners by ELF and they are fabulous! I think they were each under $3, and they last all day. I have a navy blue color and a metallic black, they’re great! I may have to try Wet and Wild now as well!

    I wonder if this liner will transfer on my lower lash area? I tend to have oily eyelids and I use a primer, but sometimes it still transfers and it makes me look like a panda. What do you think?

  • July 28, 2011

    I want to hear about your “Miracle Eyelining Brush”!!!

  • July 29, 2011

    I’d love to try the eggplant. I have several blacks. Hopefully I’ll get one that isn’t dry.

  • July 31, 2011

    elf makes similiar version in alot of colors, most are sold at target for $3. They have a couple brighter colors online. They stay really well, even on the waterline. I don’t have black, so I might try this one. Also they are really creamy.

  • July 31, 2011

    I could NOT agree with you more! I have had this sitting in my stash forever and I recently decided to try it and fell in love! I don’t know why I didn’t use it sooner, I think it was because I had misplaced my bent eye liner brush and forgot about it. The pigment is amazing, it lasts for ever and it is impossible to get off, but in a good way. This product has made the make up snob in me swallow my pride and give Wet n Wild a good look and what I’m seeing i am LOVING!

  • July 31, 2011

    Try the essence gel liner, the black is the blackest eyeliner I’ve seen. It costs 3.49 USD at ulta not sure on the ounces but it’s a pretty decent size and you use maybe 2 dips if that with a brush to do both eyes on the upper and lower lash lines. This stuff lasts so long, it doesn’t smudge within 10 or 15 seconds of applying (so better hurry when smudging). I have oil eyelids and with my old almay roll up eyeliner at the end of the day my eyeliner would be non existent to all over the place messy. With this I’ve worn it for 10 plus hours and all it would need is a slight touch up to look good. I’ve put this on the back of my hand and you have to scrub to get it off (you gotta scrub a bit on your eyes, I really need a good eye make up remover).

    I got a really good deal on the Maybelline Lasting Drama gel liners because of sales and coupons. I got the black and the purple and a Falsies mascara for about $4! I love the little brush, it works perfectly for me. I can do an extremely thin line if I wanted to, but I don’t, I prefer a thicker line. Since I’m a noob at gel liners, if I can do it anyone can. It lasts all day with no smudging or smearing, but I don’t do water lining or tight lining, so I can’t tell you anything about that. I just follow the lash line, if I do water line or tight line my eyes look small and beady! Who wants that???

    I also have a L’Oreal gel or cream liner, but rarely used it since the brushes I had sucked before now, I’ll have to try it with the Maybelline brush. I still want to get the Sonya Kashuk bent liner brush for these liners though, since I’ve heard so many good things about that one.

  • August 3, 2011

    I totally agree–this cream liner can definitely compete with MAC’s Fluidlines! If only they had more colors… Also, Physicians Formula Creamliners are comparable to MAC in my opinion.
