Sometimes you buy makeup out of requirement while other times it is the packaging or the affordability of the product that makes you buy. The affordability was the factor that made me buy the product that I will be reviewing today. In the month of June, I swatched 4 shades of Wet N Wild Catsuit Liquid Eyeshadows, which are pretty affordable. The liquid eyeshadows are affordable even if you decide to buy them at full price, but getting them at a 50% discount is a complete steal. So, after seeing a good discount on the product I bought all the 4 shades available in the collection in India. Today I will be reviewing ‘Wet N Wild Liquid Eyeshadow Emerald Gaze’ which is supposedly a deeper green shade from the collection.
Yes, these liquid eyeshadows are affordable, but is the shade Emerald Gaze still worth the money? Read on to know my experience.
Price: INR 499 for 3.5 ml of the product (Buy on Nykaa)
Like a curve-hugging catsuit for your eyes, this liquid eyeshadow sweeps onto your lids for high-impact color that lasts at least nine lives. All eyes will be on you with this shimmery liquid’s multi-dimensional effect that hugs every contour of your eye and dries down matte for long-lasting wear.
- Highly Pigmented Formula.
- Crease-resistant, long-lasting wear.
- Glittery finish that amps up any eye makeup look
No list of ingredient is mentioned on the tube, but the brand’s official website mentions the list of ingredients.
The Wet n Wild Catsuit liquid eyeshadows come in a long round transparent plastic tube with a black screw-on lid. The applicator provided is a regular flat doe foot applicator that is found is most of the similar products. The packaging and the lid are sturdy which makes the product safe to travel with.
My Experience with Wet N Wild Liquid Eyeshadow Emerald Gaze:
The shade Emeral Gaze looks like a beautiful Emerald green in the tube with chunky glitter particles. But on the eyes and even when swatched on the back of the hand, the color seems to be more of a charcoal black. The glitter particles are as chunky on the eyes as they appear in the tube. Texture-wise, the formula is kind of liquidy which makes the glitter particles spread unevenly on the lids. Even the pigmentation of the shade is not so amazing. Though when used over a green powder shadow, the glitter looks amazing, but the product is definitely not suited to be used on its own.
In my first impression, I mentioned that the glitter particles in the shadow are chunky but being a cream formula they stick to the eyelid pretty well. But, now as I have tried the shade Emerald Gaze for a full look and for a couple of hours, I am not very happy with the way the glitters stick to the lids. In the initial few minutes of application, the glitter looks good but after some time, the shadow starts to crease on the lids and the glitter particles start settling in the creases. The shadow is comparatively easy to remove (as it otherwise also have no so amazing staying power), but while removing, the glitter particles go all around the eyes which becomes a mess to clean.
The shadow does not exactly feel heavy on the lids, but the chunky glitters surely irritate my eyes. The formula in this particular shade takes way too long to dry and if you don’t wait for a good amount of time to let the liquid dry, it will instantly crease on the lids.
Overall, I am really unhappy with the way the shade Emerald Gaze worked for me and even though the product is kind of affordable, I won’t recommend it to anyone (especially this particular shade).
Pros of Wet N Wild Liquid Eyeshadow Emerald Gaze:
- Decently affordable
- Transparent tube packaging makes it look good on the vanity
- The applicator works well in applying the color
Cons of Wet N Wild Liquid Eyeshadow Emerald Gaze:
- The shade Emerald Gaze fails on all the claims made by the brand
- Takes too long to dry
- Glitter particles do not spread evenly
- The color itself is easy to remove but the chunky glitter particles may spread all around the eyes while removing
- The glitter particles somehow irritate my eyes
- The formula creases pathetically on me, just after a couple of hours (or even minutes if I don’t wait long enough to let it dry completely)
