EOTD: Wet N Wild Wildy Neutral

As promised, I used the Wet N Wild Silent Treatment Trio I reviewed the other day and created an eye look that I have aptly named Wildly Neutral. Sticking with the drugstore theme, everything I used is drugstore!

I thought I'd spice up my neutral eye with fun winged liner and doll-like lashes, which has actually become one of my signature looks!

Here's what I used...
  • Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer (the only non-drugstore product I used--sorry, I'm super picky about primer!) - patted all over lid and under eye
  • Wet N Wild Silent Treatment palette - I used the colors as suggested on the lid, crease, and brow. I was impressed by how pigmented the crease color actually was upon application. I did find the lid color to be a tad less light and shimmery that I like in the center of my lid, so I patted a touch of the browbone color onto the center of my lid.
  • Maybelline Liquid Liner in waterproof black - winged liner on upper lashline
  • Wet N Wild Color Icon eyeliner in Black - lined outer corner of lower waterline
  • L'Oreal Full N Soft mascara in waterproof black - lower lashes
  • Red Cherry lashes in #15
  • Duo lash glue
I found that the shadows wore very well over my primer with barely any fading. The maybelline waterproof liquid liner isn't my favorite as I find it a bit less smooth than I prefer, but it serves its purpose. The Wet N Wild color icon liner was pretty good, but the one spot on my face that has any oiliness to it is around the corners of my eyes a bit. I did have some smudging under the outer corners of my eyes. I'd suggest not using this pencil on your lower waterline if you have very oily eyes and choosing a waterproof and smudge-proof one instead. But for $.99, you may want to do a little trial and error!

  1. Love this look! And I love Benefit Stay don't stray. I haven't tried Too faced Shadow Insurance yet which everyone raves about and uses but Stay Don't Stray works great on my oily lids!

  2. @Lilybeans Thanks! I wear a lot of color, but I'm a huge fan of a Marilyn Monroe "bedroom eyes", too ;) I have a really hard time with primer on my eyes because I find it drying. My lids aren't oily, I just have a touch of oiliness in the corners, so primers tend to dry out my lids. Benefit is one of the ones I find the least drying. I have an "eh" relationship with Too Faced Shadow Insurance. Sometimes I find it works okay and other times I find it so drying on my lids. I'm actually going to try a new primer soon and do a review--fingers crossed I like it! So far I haven't found a Holy Grail eye primer. I guess that's one thing I'm super picky about!
