This was yet another impulse purchase, yet unlike most of my impulse purchases, I don’t regret this one! I picked up a Wet n Wild Color Icon Shimmer Pencil in Silver for 69 cents at Walgreens, figuring if I didn’t like it, well, the kids could color with it!
I almost always wear black eyeliner, and even when I don’t, I prefer dark liners like navy or purple. I decided to try this silver liner on its own and see how it looked.
I lined my eyes top and bottom with the silver pencil, and I instantly loved it! The liner applies smoothly and without the glittery, teeny-bopper look of most sparkly liner pencils. There really isn’t any glitter to this pencil; it gets its namesake shimmer from a true metallic color, not from chunks of sparkly glitter. It’s much more sophisticated and pretty than glitter.
I wore this liner to work today and am still loving it. I have exceptionally oily skin, but my liner is still going strong, close to quitting time. (Granted, I applied a rather thick layer so that the liner shows up like a gunmetal gray instead of a barely-there silver.)
Bottom line? I love this liner, love the color, and would definitely buy it again. At less than a dollar each, I would love to try other colors, especially blue or copper.
